So one of the highlights of the last few weeks was being made style their style ambassador by the awesome brand Blk + Blu Online, who have some awesome statement pieces and who’s designs are really stylish and elegant. To celebrate I have been rocking one of my favourite pieces from their A/W collection, their pin stripped Totally Flowy Jumpsuit, around town to meetings and then out with my friends. I loved it’s shape and the piece created an effortless chic yet sexy look, perfect for wintery Autumn days! So one one of the cold days out, I styled the flared one-piece with pointed stilettos, a beautiful ceramic black bracelet from Iris Sandal’s A/W collection and to accentuate the V neck, a long arrow shaped gold chain.

Ripped Flares for Grazia

Today I wanted to share an incredible Liberty of London collaboration and one of my Autumn favourite outfits that I have been wearing for the last couple of weeks around the city and to meetings.  One of the things that I love about fashion, is that good styles are always being re-used and always end up coming back around. Indeed as one of my favourite bloggers recently said “Fashion is a curious thing, it’s an endless quest to create something new by re-inventing the past.”

One of the reasons for going to Liberty’s was to see and admire their latest collaboration with Pyrrha jewellery, which I fell in love with when I saw their pieces for the first time at the Pop Pr Press Day. They feature authentic wax impressions and imagery from the Victorian Era and the pieces from this collaboration actually have the Liberty London crest embossed on them! Each iconic talisman is designed to inspire the wearer with its symbolic meaning culled from heraldry, a piece which is so inspirational that the jewellery brand has appeared in films and television shows around the world and has been worn by countless celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Richard Madden, and Kate Beckinsale.

Pyrrha jewellery is hand-crafted using reclaimed sterling silver, bronze, and 14K gold with conflict-free stones, proving that in fashion there is nothing better than taking the old to make something new and original.  Indeed everyone loves an underdog and I have been particularly loving the comeback of the flared trouser leg. Who ever would of thought right? Flares look great with bohemian style looks and are a chic break away from the more hipster skinny jeans. High waisted styles are so flattering and wearing them with heels make legs look super long. Luckily a few years ago, in true hoarder style, I put all of my flares away, but didn’t get rid of them, because as my Mum says “you never know, they may come back into fashion”….

What is weird though is that although styles do come back they are often changed and slightly altered and so although my old trousers are flared they don’t look exactly like the new style of flare…How can you have more than one type of flare? I have no idea, but they designers have managed to do it…So my answer was to take an old pair of Lois Jeans, who’s colour and shape I loved but which had been slightly too long and had dragged on the floor all those years ago and rip/cut the bottom part of the flare seem off. I had seen at the local skate park a skater who had done this with some vintage Levis and they looked great…

I was a bit nervous at first ripping up such a loved pair of trousers but I was really pleased with the end result. I really loved the trim detail that I was left with and as the jean was a bit shorter I was able to show-off the lace up detail of my  gilli shoes. I wore them to lots of meetings and the style got a pretty good seal of approval as we were asked by Grazia Italia Magazine to pose for their street style section outside Liberty’s! The shoot was really relaxed and the quality of the pictures that the photographer took were incredible, I can’t wait to show them to you soon!

In the meantime here are the pics from my time at Liberty, the beautiful Pyrrha pieces and my Grazia look that we took. I was wearing a khaki wool coat, with matching khaki hand-made ceramic bracelet from Iris Sandals‘s A/W collection, who’s founder Anastasia I met for brunch at the bluebird in Chelsea to discuss her creations, a great time and collection that I can’t wait to share with you guys very soon!

So if you have some old flared at home, I really couldn’t recommend doing this enough as you’ll end up getting a whole load of new things to wear…and all for free, plus you might even get spotted by Grazia! 😉

Let me know what you think,

 I am super happy because as I write this I have just come back from a photoshoot with one of London’s most photogenic models… Not only was everyone smiling at us as we took pictures, but Bella’s good looks brightened up the grey London skyline. Who is Bella I hear you ask? Well, she’s the star of Handpick’s promotional campaign, the one in all my pics rocking the latex look…

So you guessed it, Bella is in fact the sassiest red balloon in the world. You may have seen her in some of London’s most iconic places, spreading the word about the coolest fashion app ever, Handpick. Handpick is great because it searches across social media and a huge number of brands, to pick a selection of clothes so that you can find the perfect dress for any occasion. They feature both unknown brands and well known labels so that you can find really original looks that you wouldn’t otherwise find if you were just searching on the giant search engines. Finally some chic looks that no one else has, all without the need to scroll through endless pages of dismal dresses! Did I die and go to fashion heaven? Quite possibly…

The shoot was really fun. I decided to wear a new ASOS long sleeve dress with cut out neckline and 60’s collar, which was great because it was a bit cold out… We started off the day having coffee at Monmouth, the place that should win the prize for London’s best Cappuccino (if it hasn’t done already…) before heading off around the colourful Borough Market. Hidden away went to one of the most photogenic places in London, the famous umbrella street, a little square covered in colourful umbrellas. I loved walking through the market place with Bella, enjoying all the colourful stands of fruit, flowers and of course the amazing food!

So I hope you like the pictures from was my time exploring London with Bella and the amazing Handpick team! Bella has been to so many cool places you should definitely check out her Instagram @BellaExplores if you love London and want to see some more colourful shots of the city 🙂
