My best friend Jessica is a fierce rocker chic woman still trying her wings in the fashion world, she’s not afraid of going a bit out of her comfort zone, and I love her for this.
She was given a wardrobe consultation and personal shop which got her started on wanting more.
I wear a lot of pencil skirts and dresses but in a way that it doesn’t look like I’m going to the office or a wedding, i dress it after my personality. She wanted to learn how to wear a pencil skirt and I was happily surprised to find her completely rocking a teal pencil skirt and a white tank top with her rocker jewellery one day. Such an amazing step. She has a very nice athletic body shape with some curves in all the right places so she can pretty much pull anything off.
So now she has asked me to put together a collage of looks for her to wear when going to Rome, she wanted a vintage touch. I have given her a safe choice ( the look on the right) and a choice taking her out of her comfort zone a bit ( the look on the left) but hey, she asked for a vintage touch Also I would like to see some serious eyeliner happening to add that extra vintage touch.
I am excited to see what she has to say.
I am totally in love with this collage! Would wear it easily during these hot summer days.
Perfect for that lunch out or shopping spree
Covent Garden, Seven Dials, Monmouth Street that’s where this oasis for the fashionista, the travelling chic explorer and the quality conscious shoe lover can be found. It can’t be missed with its pastel pink fasad and alluring window display.
The shop is French Budoir inspired vintage, brass features and burgundy velvet. Tiny figurines, Pink fusions and pin up art on the walls. And then there’s Simon the cat the guardian of this amazing boutique filled with carefully chosen designer shoes.

There’s the fun and slightly quirky designers like Chie Mihara with so many truly amazing looks every season. Also this is a designer that ladies travel from different countries to buy for the comfort that her shoes give due to the orthopaedic insole.
You can find Repetto, an authentic dance shoe in the shape of ballerinas to ballroom dancing T-Bars, that’s also something that shoe lovers travel far for, this is a brand that you can only find in this amazing boutique, meaning Poste Mistress is the only shop to carry this brand in the entire of London. Or maybe you’re more into Dries Van Noten, Acne or why not the fabulous Officine Creative with it’s a masculine style made feminine in amazing italian leather.
These are just some of my personal favourites in this amazing shop, and I am not going to reveal all as I strongly feel you need to go there and explore yourself. The staff is amazing and helpful, fun and relaxed. But very much in the know they will help you find the perfect pair.

I am as we all know at this point mad about pencil skirts in various styles.
But this creation that Miranda Kerr is wearing had my gasp for air, it is amazing! Fun with print, the length is very chic and it just seems to be one of those skirts you can dress up and down to infinity.
I will definitely go out hunting for one of my very own..
