Colour Block

Hi Darlings,

Happy Friday! The weather is really lifting my spirits here in sunny Bushwick. This morning I am labouring under my Bushwick Daily deadline (I am sooo Carrie Bradshaw!) then I'm off to meet the transatlantic advanced style maven and artist Sue Kreitzman. I am interviewing her for the blog and it will no doubt be a colourful explosion of art and style as Sue was once famously quoted as saying "Don't Wear Beige, it might kill you" - note taken.

Today's #threewaystowear is a little different than usual. I am showing you three examples of how I wear one colour per outfit. Here we have head-to-toe grey, yellow and red.

Love, 

RD xoxo

#1 Grey. The trousers are vintage Yves Saint Laurent. I picked them up at a charity (thrift) shop on Marylebone High Street with Sal. An epic find. The necklace and cuff are by Anothai Hanson

#2 Yellow is hard to pull off, but divas - Spring is coming and the assault of the pastels WILL arrive - (movie trailer voice:) will you be ready?? Seriously though, break it up with a white shirt and, if the pencil skirt is tight like this one, keep the top loose - that way you can eat whatever the hell you want for lunch (priorities).

#3 A redhead wearing red? DEAL WITH IT. Make a statement in all red. Go big or go home as the children say.

Thanks to my partner in crime, the man behind the lens (and behind quite a lot of unsolicited fashion advice) Denton Taylor 

See you all next week for some fun collaborations!

Love,

Ruthie Darling xoxo

Red Alert

Hello Fashionistas,

Happy Tuesday from sunny (and I use that word ironically) London. Today on the blog I am wearing a fantastic asymmetric skirt bought in the Marks and Spencer's sale (who knew they were so cool!?)

The photos are again by the delightful

Juliette

.

Here it is #threewaystowear

#1 Wear with a shirt and jumper in neutral colours to really let the skirt shine. Add flatforms to keep it edgy.

#2 For a more romantic vibe wear with a sweet floral top and vintage heels. Perfect for a late summer brunch. Also please enjoy the incredible creepy door knocker....

#3 Go big or go home. Crop top, platform boots, massive church. DONE

Until next time fashion divas!

Men's Fashion Week

Hello Darlings,

Whilst I'm sunning myself and belting out showtunes in Florida, New York has been hosting Men's Fashion Week. Although I could not be there, my Man-Friday 

Denton Taylor

 was on the ground to find some of the fashionistas on the scene. 

Have a gander at some of the fashionistas below.

#1 A look I noticed appearing is the statement-coloured suit. Check out these beauties:

#2 Patterned trousers have long been a staple for us lady-fashionistas, but now men are getting in on the action and it's fabulous!

#3 See-thru shirts also made an appearance. Take a look at these peek-a-boo chaps

#4 Let's not forget about the stylish groups of friends that were spotted on the street. #squadgoals

#5 The prize for the hottest janitor in FW goes to this bearded gent

#6 I know it's men's fashion week, but we can't forget the chic ladies that were out and about

#7 Shout-out to this baby who is about to become NYC's most gorgeous sprog

Thanks to my darling 

Denton

 for the fabulous photos.

Emily Cremona Part 2 - Gothic Wedding

Hello Darlings!

This week I have teamed up again with the fabulous Deena Wassef of 

Emily Cremona

 - the NYC/Beirut based fashion house.  In this post I am wearing her beautiful bridal coat. Over the next few posts we will see a few more of her designs styled in the Ruthie-Darling way, so keep an eye out for that.

I am dedicating this post to my dear, dear, friend Gemma Glynn who is marrying her sweetheart next year in England! Congrats Gem and Jonny (aka Cookie The Bookie) - I can't wait to see you both soon. 

xoxo Ruthie Darling
