So I wasn’t planning on doing anything last Wednesday night, but on Tuesday I happened to see a hashtag on Twitter that I couldn’t not research into- something about bloggers and a funfair… you so would look too!
It turned out to be a small gathering of bloggers to showcase Joe Browns new A/W collection inspired by the funfair at a bar near Leicester Square. I nudged my fav blogger girlattherockshow and she came along with me after work and we had a blast.
The bar was filled with sweet funfair treats like popcorn and candy floss and there were even games to play like hook a duck and a sweet grabber machine. The collection was placed all around the area we were in; bags, shoes and hats with a big rail in the centre to browse through. I spotted a luxurious kaftan that I am dying to grab- so of course I tried it on! The tassle detail at the bottom worked a treat! If you want to see it on the site just search Devore Kaftan
I bumped into Scarlett London by chance who sat down next to us and was great to meet her. If you aren’t already following her blog please do!
Another fab blogger who I sat next to during the catwalk show was uptown style. She was such a laugh and would love to hang out with her again!
The catwalk show was excellent. Really lovely and upbeat, and I swear all the models were trained dancers from the way they turned so effortlessly. Another piece that caught my eye besides the kimono was a stunning jacket with embroidered floral detail on the front and back. It was what I can only describe as an edgy but delicate combination, much like me (or so I like to think!) what do you think?
The night was a great spur of the moment decision and am so glad that I had the opportunity to go and meet the people behind Joe Browns, plus some new bloggers too!
Check out their full catalogue here and see if there’s something that catches your eye!
So yesterday evening I had the pleasure of working with Annie and Aleks as we did a last minute Photoshoot at my flat. I was wearing 2 pieces by a latex designer and we had such a great time!
My look was dark pink eyes and we recreated doll like poses. This was my first time wearing latex for a shoot, and although I struggled to get into it, it looked fab on!
We used my living room and bedroom and did some elegant shots with light boxes. I wore my cherry Vivienne Westwoods for the final touch and left my hair down and loose. I don’t really wear pink clothes or makeup so it was a nice change as I wouldn’t have chosen to wear something like this normally!
I’ll be posting the finished photos up on my model page here and on my insta here over the next few days, so watch out!!!
On Thursday 30th July, I couldn’t wait to ditch the office flats for my heels as I rushed over to Oxford Street after work. InStyle magazine had organised a special reader event in one of Swarovski’s Regent St stores. No expense was spared on the decorations; silver balloons glistening like diamonds and bags of sweet treats hidden in every corner. They even had Ciaté nail technicians on hand to give manicures too!
As I entered and took a glass of bubbly off the nearest tray to me, I couldn’t decide where to begin. The store was packed with ladies and handbags as well as mountains of jewellery, so I found myself stopping at the closest cabinet. My eye was immediately caught by a stunning pair of earrings, they were V shaped, rose gold, and they had my name on them! Thanks to the £10 gift card given to us on arrival, I purchased these for £59 on the night instead of £69. Check them out online here, they come in silver too!
We had a trend talk from InStyle’s Fashion Director who told us that mixed metals are the must-haves this season. My Delta earrings also have matching sister rings and necklaces, so we’ll see how long it takes for me to mix these up! After making my purchase, I headed for the manicure table. I chose a nude blush colour called ‘Amazing Gracie’, and almost 5 days on not a single chip. Ciaté are well worth the investment of £9 per bottle, and they have just launched a collection with Olivia Palermo, so they are gaining a name for themselves since launching in 2009.
InStyle have another event coming up in August- this time they have collaborated with Bravissimo and will take place in InStyle’s London office on the 12th August. Get your tickets for £10 here, I’ll definitely be going there on another adventure soon!
It’s July! And it’s crazy hot here in London today- temperatures are soaring upwards of 30 degrees in this heat wave and I’m at work in a gladly air conditioned office!
So, I thought I would let you all know some exciting news happening this month and throughout the summer-
I am in the preliminary stages of setting up my own management company for Petite Models!
The company will be called Petite Model management and I am so thrilled to be working with some amazing petite models over July and August for test shoots!
I feel really passionate about the industry of fashion and modelling, and have seen for a long time now that there is a huge gap in the market for petites. Of course some agencies do have a petite range of models, but this is disproportionate to the majority of models on their books, nor is there an actual UK based agency specifically for petites. So this is what I will be focusing on trying to create this year!
If you are under 5”7 and this is something you would love to know more about please get in touch! I am welcoming all ages and ethnicities to come and test shoot with me in London for free this summer!
Also if you are a MUA or designer and are looking to collaborate with a bunch of petite beauties, also please get in touch!
I hope that this will grow into something big through word of mouth and through social media- at the moment I have a twitter set up and once I have selected my models from the test shoots I will be setting up a website!
Any comments or willing participants, share the word that petite is fierce and we are coming to get you!
