Style Sportif Launch

Style Sportif Launch

As some of you already know, I started My Girls On Tour to share my stories and experiences of life on the professional tennis tour…So I am super excited to have been invited to go this Saturday to Tie Break Tens held at the Royal Albert Hall- I won’t just get to see some of my favourite players play (some of whom have just won the Davis Cup this weekend), but I am also interviewing one of the world’s most famous players for My Girls On Tour! Eeek!

 I can’t wait to share it all with you soon 🙂 But before we get on to some serious tennis, I first wanted to talk about my time at the launch of the brand new fashion/fitness brand Style Sportif – an online market place that brings together some of the most famous names in sport fashion – to give us ladies some seriously stylish activewear, to not only feel good, but  to also look good whilst we are training! Or in my case, tree hugging, as I try to hold myself up after slowly dying from 5 minutes of slow running…

From super colourful leggings from Lexie Sport and Laurie Nouchka, to crazy sock designs from Move Active, chrome tops from SukiShufu and the bold very chic looks from Gymluxe, Style Sportif has a great range of stylish pieces that transition from sportswear to fashionable daywear.  At the launch, I loved looking at all the designs and I especially loved the London printed leggings and the street style pieces from Beth Richards!

The lauch was held at a very cool venue called Lights of Soho, which was just opposite where London Fashion Week had been held. The room was adorned with the coolest neon signs and riskee photographs, there was music, original cocktails on demand, Instaframs and goodie bags filled with all sorts of treats, from Coconut juice to Epoch pick me up scrub. A fashionista’s heaven!

It was in the evening and so I decided to wear black Guess Jeans, black heels and a backless sequin top from All Saints, that is perfect for events. It makes jeans look more formal and also swishes around as I walk, so it makes me feel like Cinderella – without the fear of tripping over my long ball gown.

Before Style Sportif I used to wear an oversized t-shirt and baggy sweats to do fitness in, but after seeing so many cool activewear designs I am starting to seriously re-think my poor training fashion choices…How about you, what do you guys like to wear when you work out?

So here are some pics and videos from the event.

Happy Monday everybody!

Motril Photo Diary

Motril Photo Diary

Travelling on an AVE in Spain is always a pleasurable experience. Arriving just 30 minutes before departure means that you are well on time, if not early, there is hardly any wait, you can take as much luggage as you can carry and the carriages are kept at the perfect temperature, which in the Spanish summer, is prettyyy darn important if you ask me! 😉 I watched the countryside turn from orange groves to olive trees, from red earth to scorched yellow grass in between chapters of Ernest Hemingway’s “For Whom the Bell Tolls”, which tells the story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to a Republican guerrilla unit during the Spanish Civil War. I mean if you are going to go to a foreign country then you might as well immerse yourself completely in it’s culture, right? 😉

It was pretty hot in Barcelona but down South was something else. I couldn’t have prepared myself for the wave of hot air that hit me as I stepped out of the train, even at 9 o’clock the air still hadn’t cooled down. We were met at Alicante station by my boyfriend Gustavo’s lovely parents, whom we were visiting and with whom we would be staying the week with. We had gone to Motril the year before and the great thing about the place is that it is very close to Granada and Gustavo and his family have been going there on holiday for years, so they know all the great things to do, the places to eat great food and have loads of really nice friends. Our time spent here is always super fun, the perfect type of summer holiday, spent in the presence of perfect company.

This week was all about relaxing, enjoying the beach and the pool. The apartment that we stayed at was really lovely and right on the sea front and a short drive to the golf course. A real home away from home! Are days were spent playing gold, going to the numerous chirringitos or beach bars, drinking summer wine and eating sea food on the terrace and of course meeting our friends down at the beach.

Because of the position of Motril on the coast, the sea water is a mix of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean and depending on the tide and the wind, sometimes is very warm, other times ice cold and sometimes just the perfect temperature. Everyday when we walked down the water’s edge we would wonder what it would be like and the topic of conversation first thing would invariably turn to that. We had days when the temperature of the water would change by a whole 10 degrees, days when our feet would virtually turn to ice, days when the water was warm and like a millpond and others where it was super hot but we couldn’t swim because of tiny little purple jelly fish that the kids hunted around the shore and prodded with sticks. The action was undoubtedly down at the beach, but we always had our back up plan, the clear warm pool of the apartment, surrounded by soft grass and palm trees.

On Tuesday night the most amazing market that appears along the promenade, between the palm trees and the sea, where people sell all sorts of things including locally grown mangos, bananas and peaches. Motril is on what is called the Tropical Coast and Spaniards have named it such due to the micro-climate and warm weather that is so typical of the area. The winters are so mild that sugar cane grows there and rhum is even made locally! At the market Gustavo’s family bought me a really pretty bikini, some cute floral espadrilles and some lovely earrings that I couldn’t take off. Those little stands were just full of treasures and the perfect place for anyone looking for good value pretty pieces. In fact I am wearing some of my purchases in the pictures below…

Last year when we stayed here on our Andalusian Road Trip we went to visit Granada and the Alhambra which is a must see if you ever travel to Spain or if you love UNESCO heritage sites, because it was one of the most magnificent sites that I have ever been to. This time though we stayed locally, going for walks to a nature park close to the house, playing beach tennis and making great new friends.  One night we even went to the local fisherman’s village fair complete with children’s rides, candy floss machines and shooting range, where singers performed until the early hours of the morning and salsa dancers danced next to streets of low lying white washed houses decorated with colourful bunting. It felt like I was back in Cuba for the night!

I couldn’t get used to walking past the most incredible flowers and tropical plants. Large bushes covered in massive Hawaiian type flowers, some red, some white and some pink were growing everywhere. I absolutely love palm trees, the rustling noise that they make in the wind and the fan shape of the leaves and being surrounded by so many of them really made me feel as if I was a a lot further away, maybe even the Caribbean!

So here is the photo diary of my time in Motril, I hope you like it!

Hola Barcelona!

Hola Barcelona!

image

I thought that I would start my Spanish summer travel adventures with our trip down to Motril, Granada, in the very South of Spain, the place that we returned from shortly before the start of fashion week.

After spending a week at my parent’s house in the South of France, going to the beach, walking in the mountains and eating amazing seafood, we took crossed the boarder into Northern Catalunya and took the train from Figueres, home to the amazing Salvador Dali Museum, to Barcelona, a trip that I usted to do it fairly regularly when I played professional tennis at the Sanchez Casal Academy. It is a pretty easy journey and one that I would recommend to any travellers wanting to go from the South of France into Spain. It is so much easier, quicker and cheaper to cross the boarder by car and then join the local train network at either Girona or Figueres, which will then take you directly into the heart of Barcelona, rather than attempt to go directly from Perpignan.

The giant white eggs of the Dali Museum loomed above the rusty red mosaic towers that jutted into the sky. The air was already hot even though it was quite early in the morning. We bought out train tickets and then had some strong Spanish coffee, croissants and chocolate pastries in the small little station cafe. The timing was perfect, we were just finishing when the train was announced in Catalan and before we knew it, we were speeding off into the dust and sun, towards the big city, towards Barcelona.

Barcelona is one of my favourite places in the whole world, I have so many great memories there and whenever I return they all just come flooding back. I remember when I was just 14 having finished tennis practice, racing my friends up the steps at the Park Guel and wondering the Gothic quarters in search of tapas and earrings. Every weekend we would take the bus into town, we would walk down the Ramblas, go shopping along the Diagonal, have coffee at Starbucks and go then go on to Port Olimpic.  Indeed simply arriving at Sants and walking passed the McDonald’s where my friend Federica and I had been stranded at 1.30am and seeing the vending machine that we had searched when we arrived at the station another time only to realise that we had no money to get home because we had spent all of our money shopping, was a real trip down memory lane. It all felt like yesterday that we were all on tour together!

We had some time to wait before taking out connecting AVE, Spain’s super fast train, that would take us down to Alicante in 5 only hours! So we left the train station and walked around the beautiful city, passed the first nightclub I ever went out to and onwards into the distance, to Plaza Catalunya, to the old streets and passed Gaudi’s Casa Battlo. We walked around el barrio Gotico and had smoothies at La Boqueria. It was all so magical and it was shame that our stay was so brief.

On our way back to the station after an exhausting day walking around admiring the mosaics and blue sky, we stopped off at a nice looking restaurant and had a great lunch, perfect for preparing us for our trip down to Alicante. One of the best things I learned while I living in Spain was to always go for the lunch menu because they are usually around 10-12 euros and include drinks (wine, coke…) three courses and coffee. If you find a standard decent place to eat then the food will be fresh and of really good standard.

I was sad to say Adios to Barcelona but excited for our next stop, Motril a sea side resort close to Alicante which was now only 5 1/2 hours away!

Gowns & Imperial Romance at Fashion International Show – LFW Day 2

Gowns & Imperial Romance at Fashion International Show – LFW Day 2

image

My second day at London Fashion was almost finished but not quite yet because at 7.30pm I had the Fashion International SS16 London Fashion Week Show which was being held at the Amba Hotel in Charring Cross! I was loosing my voice, because of course Fashion Week would be the one week where I would get sick (but I guess at least I now had the sexy husky voice as well as the runny nose) and my feet had taken a pounding from wearing heels for the past two days but I was very excited and hurried towards Trafalgar Square.

The Amba Hotel is right at the heart of London, in an incredible location, right opposite Nelson’s Column that stands tall in the middle of Trafalgar Square, opposite the National Portrait Gallery. The venue was very glamorous with red carpets, large marble sailing staircases and beautiful high ceiling with chandeliers and ornate plaster work. An incredible place to host a Fashion Show and I was super grateful to Pop Pr for inviting me! 🙂

The one thing I really love about going to see multi-designer shows is the great variety of designs that you get to see and this time was no exception. 6 incredible international designers, all with very different styles, showcased their collections and then afterwards I got to go to the VIP drinks and after party where models walked around in the runway designs and TV crews interviewed the designers. The ambiance was lovely and the whole affair was very elegant. The VIP after party was pretty amazing and I got to see the dresses up close, the Paralympic athlete Stefanie Reid and there were definitely some BFF goal moments, but I was there on my own and most of the people seemed to have come with someone so I although I would of liked to of stayed longer I ended up leaving quite early 😦 Do any of you have any tips for if you have to go to a party on your own? Are you brave enough to go up to a group of people and just talk to them? And if so, what is your secret? Share it with meeeh 🙂

imageimageimage

I didn’t have a lot of battery so I couldn’t get too many pictures, plus I wasn’t in the best spot but I have been sent the photos of my favourite designs taken by Sahid Malik and some of the pictures below are curtesy of the respective designers themselves, so I will share those along with the ones that I took from the show and the private party. I hope you like them, Abi xxx

Yuvna Kim

For me Yuvna Kim’s haute couture bespoke gowns were the most beautiful pieces of the whole night. They were timelessly elegant, something to treasure and pass to the next generation. I am a massive fan of 1920s flapper girl fashion and these dresses, showcased in such a beautiful venue really reminded me of the Gatsby era. With beautiful beading, large feathered trains and the use sheer embroidered fabric, these dresses had an incredible wow factor and in my mind, would be the dream dress for any special occasion.

Omar Mansoor

The mood definitely shifted with Omar’s beautiful Imperial Romance Collection hit the catwalk. The name on everybody’s lips was undoubtedly Omar Mansoor, when this collection proved to be a particularly memorable success. The designs were really strong, constructed with hues of white and ivory depicting with white and gold silk flowers, the peace post Russia’s revolution, a period of history that made the Russian fashion adjust to the new Communist norms, which condemned everything “bourgeois” and extraordinary. Both pre revolution Tsarist Autocracy and the rise of the revolution could be seen with Faberge imperial eggs inspired motifs and military insignia and caps, the end of revolution peace is shown with white and gold silk flowers.

Lenie Boya

These designs were really unique and I loved the use of the sumptuous metallic fabric. The use of 3D shapes and cut out panels really made these designs pop, pushing the boundaries of 2D wear and gave them a very modern edge. Entitled “Dramatique”, Lenie’s predominantly monochrome collection oozed sophistication and was aimed at women who want to ‘confidently articulate their individuality’. Whilst I liked the use of bold silver buckles and high neck ruffles which made me think of a modern interpretation of Elizabethan costume, I loved the final dress and sawn design. It was wonderful that Paralympic athlete Stefanie Reid became the first British amputee to model at London fashion week, when she opened Lenie Boya’s show at the Amba Hotel. Sophie de Oliveira Barata of the Alternative Limb Project designed a bespoke blade prosthesis featuring a chandelier, which Reid will wore in the show.

Forever Devine

These designs were very beautiful and elegant with the talent of these pieces lying in their simplicity and easy sophistication. Definitely one of the most wearable of all the collections, I really enjoyed seeing such lovely very ethereal and angelic dresses. I really liked the dark blue ballroom skirts and the jewelled encrusted open blazers that really gave these elegant pieces a modern red carpet edge.

Daniel Syiem

Embodying my favourite hippy chic style, this collection inspired by the rich cultural heritage of the North-East of India was truly beautiful. These great designs showed great use of construction technique and the beautiful yellow and ocre vegetable dyes, with the use of the hand woven material “Ryndia” created an earthy simplicity which really defined this great ethnic collectionl. I really loved how each outfit was really brought together by the John Lennon style sunglasses and casual head pieces, adding a really cool, bohemian vide to the whole collection. Probably one of the most interesting of all the collections of the night and a designer with immense talent and a potential for global hipster appeal.

Aga Couture London

A beautiful collection of luxurious dresses and rompers, which really had the wow factor. Silk and golden hues with great lace detalles, flowing net trains and mesh panelling, these designs were both feminine and elegant. I really liked the romantic flowing fabrics which came back in at the ankles and wrists with detailed hand embroidery and the odd pop of exotic bright red that really contrasted with the white of the dresses. The silhouettes were very feminine and flattering, perfect for smart everyday wear, the playsuits and shorter dresses were the perfect outfits to transition from the day into the night.

Fierce Street Style Fashion at London Fashion Week – Rein & Field of Ponies SS16

Fierce Street Style Fashion at London Fashion Week – Rein & Field of Ponies SS16

There was some pretty cool fashion going on in the Designer Showrooms and after 3pm a DJ started mixing music and the people drinking at the bar spilled out into the show space, turning the whole place into one massive party. It was during such times that some particularly fierce fashion came on show, with two designers in particular that I can’t wait to tell you about.

REIN was founded in 2013 by Rebecca Morter and Gemma Vanson, is rapidly becoming an industry favourite and has been worn by Lady Gaga, Lisa Maffia, and featured in Cheryl Cole’s ‘Crazy Stupid Love’, so it was no wonder that the fierce models and lazer cut monochrome collection really caught my eye. The pieces were really strong and very edgy, a rebellious and strong feminist statement. I loved it and I couldn’t help but think that the pieces would be great for cool street style look and would definitely offer a one of a kind design. Indeed, REIN is all about a celebrating the female form,  and their designs are inspired by and for women, focusing on the body as a medium and in keeping with their signature look, there was a real exploration between the body and clothing, revealing and concealing, a play upon the socially acceptable and clothing’s ability to empower women.

In total contrast but equally as fierce was the collection from Field of Ponies. Eye catching bubble gum pink designs didn’t take away from the wild nature of the pieces. This London/Montreal based label designed by Julie Bérubé, is undoubtedly perfect for anyone looking to make a mark and find their “tribe” with monster shaggy hand woven coats and quilted pieces which really played with the relationship between man and nature. I just loved the use of different fabrics, woven rope and faux fur it was so different and really unique. Some of the most original sweatshirts I have seen, these unisex creations really stood out as amazing street style wear.

Let me know what you think

Backstage with Maybelline at London Fashion Week

Backstage with Maybelline at London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week was incredible and so much fun. I have so many beautiful shows and talented designers to share with you but first I wanted to post about the outfits from Day 2 and behind the scenes in the Designer Showrooms with Maybelline.

People have been divided as to whether Soho was a better place than Somerset House to host London Fashion Week, but I loved how the new venue was so close to all the great tourist sites and beautiful London buildings, so as I walked around I couldn’t help but take some lovely pictures of the center of the city which was basked in sun light. Our journey to Soho took us part the lovely St Paul’s Cathedral, Covent Garden and of course many many red telephone boxes! It was all very pretty and I loved how the new venue was so close to all these beautiful sites and the one of the best cake shops ever, Cutter & Squidge!

image image image image image

In the morning I wore a street style look inspired by the New Yeezee Collection showcased at New York Fashion Week a few days before – some might call the look Hobo Chic and as I kept being asked by staff to show my ticket and pass everywhere I went, I think the London Fashion Week organizers thought I was definitely more hobo than chic. One benefit of dressing street style strongly put me in the camp of the bloggers who could quite easily be recognised in their eccentric, sometimes over the top or at least more casual attire, but I noticed that lots of the established fashionistas wore more tailored, chic looks which achieved a very expensive eye catching look.

image imageimageimage

So, for my behind the scenes with Maybelline, I decided to wear a tailored which cream suit, which immediately made me feel so confident, plus a girl in a suit always looks sexy! I’ve lately been obsessed with suiting and playing with the suit concept and I thought that it would really fit with such a cool New York brand. Pairing a perfectly tailored pair of trousers with a wide shoulder boyfriend blazer, is really easy and elegant. And guys, trust me a good high waisted flared pair of trousers is the best thing to get for fall. It elongates the silhouette and adds this super cool 70’s vibe *So Fetch!*

 Maybelline has been one of my favourite make-up brands ever since I tried their Watershine lipgloss when I was 14, so I was super excitted going into their area was just behind the Press area. I wasn’t disappointed, it was super pretty. A giant “M” was decorated with red roses, they had the coolest celebrity Hollywood mirrors with lights all around the edge and enough make-up to last a life time! Well…maybe not a life time, but a few months 😉 It was great to get your make-up done there, to try all their amazing new products and different colours that I otherwise might not have had the creative ability to pair together. I shared the whole experience on my Snapchat * (Abigail Royston add me!) as well as my final look but unfortunately I didn’t save the video so I can’t share it here for you 😦 But let’s just say that it was super fun and super girlie! :)) xxxx

Day 1 London Fashion Week Designer Showrooms Highlights

Day 1 London Fashion Week Designer Showrooms Highlights

There were so many cool fashionistas and crowds of people around the entrance. the whole street really felt like one massive fashion party. I took some pictures by the large official sign that read “LONDON FASHION WEEK” and a few street style shots and then, with my pass in my hand head off to the Designer Showrooms. I didn’t quite know what to expect and boy was I in for a surprise…

Walking through the door was like having the key to platform 9 3/4, it felt amazing and my first real insight into the real world of fashion. The Designer Showrooms were really big, a lot bigger than I had expected, they went on further than I could see! The British Fashion Council had divided up a huge floor into sections and in each section there was a different designer showcasing their Spring/Summer 2016 collection. The different variety and amount of designers was fantastic. There was jewellery on show, bags, ready to wear women’s wear and a whole selection of the most amazing hats. For me it was such a great experience because I got to talk to many of the designers and ask them about their inspiration, their styles, materials and generally learn more about them. When the shows finished, the collections would come straight off the Catwalks in the BFC Show Space and into the Showrooms. It was the perfect place to get up and personal with the collections, to touch, photograph and admire the pieces. Over the Fashion Week there were even designer presentations and in the evening industry drinks and DJ. A fashionistas dream and one that I can’t wait to share with you all! 🙂

Seeing such beautiful creations really inspired me to run a weekly feature of some of my favourite and most avant garde designers but in the meantime here is a preview of my Day 1 highlights and a sneak peak into the Designer Showrooms of London Fashion Week! I hope you like it 🙂

MAWI

Like a magpie I am drawn to all things shiny and there was nothing more colourful than these amazing miniature bags and corrupt coin purses in croc leathers of sky blue, spiced pink, sherbert orange and acid green. These Criminal Bags really packed a punch with the amazing street style writing “Drug Money”, “Thief” or “Dealer”, I felt that these gem coloured villains would the perfect accessory for any fashionista.

image imageSTEPHEN JONES MILLINERY

Probably one of the first things that I saw when I walked into the Designer Showroom were these amazing creations by Stephen Jones Millinery, the master of haute couture hat design. He asked some of his best and most loyal clients to tell him what would be their”perfect hat” and he then designed it with them especially in mind. The black cowboy hat with veil was commission by a Playboy girl who asked for the “perfect hat to wear on the beach” and the hat with foliage was “the perfect hat to enable me to garden without being seen”. There was the “perfect hat for sex” which I tried on unwittingly and also the “a hat for both  Bali and Australia”.  Can you guess which one is which? What do you think the others were for?

image image image image imageCECILIE BAHNSEN

I was first drawn to the incredible texture of the pieces and I was super amazed to find out that the dresses were actually made with the inside of plastic flowers. I truly had a candy crush on the whole collection – the dresses looked really stylish. Cecilie’s debut SS16 collection offered a fresh and contemporary take on easygoing luxury and each piece really showed a modern and simple silhouette with a focus on quality and detail, combined with alluring embroidery and fabric. Truly the perfect choice for someone looking for a feminine yet modern look, don’t you think?

image image  MOON LEE

This collection was particularly special not least because Moon Lee is from Anseong, the town in South Korea were I went and played the World Soft Tennis Championships on my first long distance trip to Asia. I absolutely loved the colours used in the collection, especially the vibrant yellows and the dark blue. The pieces were embroidered and very bright and lively, perfect for Spring. Each piece was very unique and the whole collection really shone. I can’t wait to share more of her photos with you soon! 🙂

imageimagePITCHOUGUINA

This collection was so beautiful I just wanted to go travel to Paris with every single piece. SS16 collection featured a mix of off white, navy and blue colours that created a summery summery melancholic seaside feel. I really loved the mix of stiffer, solid textiles with with super fine lace trims and the see-through details that overlapped. For me this collection was, elegant, perfect for a special occasion but also wearable as casual, everyday pieces. It was very feminine and I loved how effortlessly chic each piece was. Definitely one of my favourite collections!

Are you ready for London Fashion Week?!

Are you ready for London Fashion Week?!

image

Wow! If you have been following on Instagram you will be well know that I have been to France, Madrid and Spain twice, have set up an online store which took us to Argentina. Not to mention a whole lot of amazing things have happened in between that I just can’t wait to share with you, but first I wanted to pick up our adventure at London Fashion Week!

The excitement started a few weeks ago when I received my official pass and pack from the British Fashion Council, because YES, My Girls On Tour was chosen as one of the accredited blogs of London Fashion Week! I couldn’t believe it and I was so so happy! I had been to some catwalk shows before but this time I got to go into the Designer Showrooms, backstage and see some of the most anticipated collections of spring/summer 16, an incredible experience that I just can’t wait to share with you!

I was quite relaxed in the lead up to London Fashion Week but then with one day to go, I realised that I hadn’t been to the hairdressers in about 5 months and I had nothing to wear…so the panic set in and the next days became a world wind rush!I went to Brick Lane to check out the vintage shops and boutiques to buy some fashionable things to wear. We arrived at 9am ready for some intense shopping, only to realise that as it was a week day we would have to wait till 11 to shop…11!!!!! Where are we? Cuba?

We had brunch, my favourite Eggs Benedict with Avocado and Cappuccino’s at a cafe opposite Khahaila (also an amazing place for cakes)  and waited for the shops to open… I wondered, “is this what addiction feels like”? I was supposed to buy 4 outfits but with only a couple of hours and a bit of a wondering mind it was obviously going to prove too much to pull off… My first purchase was a pair of vintage Levis high waisted hipster jeans from Rockit Vintage, a massive store filled with old vintage clothes and shoes. I loved them but I couldn’t find anything to go with them though… One store particularly stood out for me and that was the Laden Showroom full of amazing new emerging British Designers, such as Typical Freaks, Cami Cuckoo, and The Lazyones with incredibly beautiful pieces at great prices. I loved everything despite having a bit of wardrobe crisis inside the shop and after trying on about 50 things I couldn’t face asking the store manager to put any more things back…I did however buy my outfit that I wore on my first day which I can’t wait to share with you!

After the only semi successful shopping trip, I then got home and panic called Reids my favourite hairdressers and the conversation went something like this:

“What do you mean you have no space this afternoon?… Yes I know it is 3pm already…Ok, what about tomorrow morning?…What!? You only have time for half a head of highlights?!”….long pause… (an intense Dear Diary moment if ever there was one).. OK, I’LL TAKE IT! If anyone asks I’ll just have to say it’s a new type of ombre…SORTED! 😉

Next Stop LONDON FASHION WEEK!
