IT SLIDES












Gone are the days, where my close friends laughed and make fun of my some what 'granny' style slides that I bought on a whim and in the hunt for some easy & comfy slip ons to keep my small but unfortunate bunions at ease. The original Birkenstock was designed in 1897 for the natural form of the foot to allow freedom of movement and all-round support. They are one of my most prided purchases despite the looks & laughs I received. And finally the rest of the world have to come to think the same. The slide or slip-on  as some may say is THE shoe of S/S 2014 & I sure won't be holding back the shame in buys another few sets.

Here are a few affordable & designer sets to set your eyes on.

POSTPONE



It's a first in a hell of a long time that I have planned nothing but to Work/ Read /Gym chill . Well, I had planned a very exciting brunch with one of my favourite designers (who I shall not name) & actually scheduled in my very first test shoot for the blog to showcase the product I pretty much spent my last months pay check on, but due to the  unsettling & slightly bipolar weather conditions, it has been postponed to next week.

Instead, I have basically spent the whole day in bed keeping an eye on #NYFW & watching 'Wolf of Wall Street'. Jordan Belfort is an absolute legend..a sick legend & Martin Scoresese pretty much nailed this film. HARD. If you haven't already seen it, it's highly recommended by me.

This week being at the MFTHQ for 8hours, 5days, plus working the Taylor Swift x Keds  #REDTourBus on Sunday, styling a shoot outdoors in Chelsea on Tuesday, a Private event for Coco De Mer on Wednesday, crazy hard training session on Thursday & last nights chilled work do, Sunday will officially be my day of rest.

& breathe...

UNDERSTATED




















With fashions biggest, busiest, skinniest & definitely most tiring week approaching (yeah thats London Fashion Week) it's time to start thinking style. Comfier the better, or in many peoples cases outlandish & just purely just weird outfits to takeover the scene in the all important courtyard space of Somerset House.

No, that is not what i'll be doing, instead along with my fellow colleagues I will be attending any shows & events FlashTrash is worthy of & meeting blogger friends, or just friends for drinks of course. Oh and getting our share of street style looks as content for the company blog. 

While many go along with the looks they see on the catwalk, I tend to think twice about the inspirations behind collections. The style, texture, material & anything it may resemble is one thing, but the animals, buildings, previous trends or era that may be edging back is key. The BFC have begun to collate the inspirations behind AW14 here.
