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,

#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,

Opening Night

Happy Friday Fashionistas,

It's opening night down here in West Palm Beach! I am absolutely thrilled to be playing every acerbic-witted actress' dream role of Charlotte. #typecastandlovingit

One of the most marvelous things about working in theatres around the country for a fashion blogger can be summed up in two words: COSTUME SHOP. Endless racks of vintage clothing and costumes just dying to be taken out into the street for a fashion shoot. 

Over the next few posts I will showcase some of the delicious discoveries I have made whilst ransacking the wardrobe department at the Palm Beach Dramaworks. Shoutout to Wardrobe Mistress Linda Shorrock who is currently tied up in a storage closet.

First, a little 70's action. Cute, but **be warned** polyester and the Florida heat do not mix well. I smell great right now.

Hello Fashionistas,

Sometimes barging into someone's office and demanding they give you a raincoat to wear on your blog, actually bloody works! 

#Gobigorgohomeson 

Of course, it probably helped that Korean was the main language spoken in the office - I think they just said "yes" to get rid of the odd, British girl stumbling about in white sunglasses. 

Anyway, who cares, it's the destination not the journey or something like that so, long story short, in this post I am collaborating with the NYC based outerwear company

With this inclement

 weather, a light, "shove-it-in-your-handbag" raincoat** is exactly what I need right now.

**not official name.....yet....)

Here is one of their waterproof raincoats styled up #threewaystowear. 

Love,

#1 Just because I'm not an Upper East Side mother yet, doesn't mean I can't dress like one. Wear your yuppie Hunter wellies with pride darlings! 

Optional: Accessorise with a baby named Gulliver or India.

#2 Wear over some wide-legged polka-dotted trousers and cinch that waist to within an inch of its life - you don't need to be able to digest until after lunch anyway.

#3 For more of a vintage feel, wear over an A-line skirt and matching crop top. Then hang out near a bunch of outdoor eateries hoping that someone will buy you a cheeseburger. (No one did btw and yes this is a overt attempt at a Shake Shack collaboration).

Thank You all at Snowman NYC!

At one point during the shoot I attempted to sit on one of these planters and, let's just say, well, I appeared to have the balancing skills of a drunk on an express subway train. We did manage to get one shot though, however I was so excited to have done it I look like a mental Morton Salt girl.
