Styling for a friend…

Jessica does Rome...

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.

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. If you have an outfit that you need to buy those perfectly matched shoes for, bring it with you as there’s a perfect little dressingroom in the corner and then there’s the best mirror in London to help you see the entire look put together.

The buyer and Manager has worked with a passion to understand the customer profile and has found the perfect balance between the designer choices. She has been awarded with a Best footwear Retailer Award 2014. And you can see why when you enter this amazing shop.

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.

This Sonia Rykiel Skirt!

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..

Always dress like the world is your runway…

white dress

Sure it sounds like a bit much, but in all honesty.. If you were to meet your biggest crush or worst enemy, would you not prefer to look as awesome as you can..? You will then actually have a boost of confidence, more than if you’d be standing there in your stained leggings and ripped tunic.

I have this one problem, I plan my outfits most of the times the night before. Sometimes I’ll then wake up the next day and when wearing that planned outfit I feel like maybe it’s just a little much. But what happens all of these times is that I regret that change, and wish I would have stuck with the initial plan. I feel that I should have brought my A-game with the initial outfit..

Milano fashion

And then there’s the little fly in your head saying “but what will other people think” we all have this once in a while. And luckily nowadays having your own style is greatly appreciated. And it’s such a personal statement.

I love the vintage 40′s to 50′s, and even if many would think I’m over dressed and sometimes even asking me ” where are you going dressed like that?”, I strut happily and i love dressing as this is The day it will happen. I have inspired friends and people that have crossed my way to just dress as if the world is their runway.

I used to be a surfer girl and now I’m more a Classic chic all thanks to a pencil skirt from Jane Norman in 2008 and now I’mhooked.


Have fun with your style, is there a new look you’d love to try? Go for it!
