Last of the Summer Outfits

Hello Fashionistas,

Happy Tuesday to you all. It seems like summer is finally cooling off here in NYC and I'm already eyeing up all of the Autumn-wear in the stores that I can't afford. #artistproblems #sendfreestuff

So, to honour the last days of summer, here is an adorable Topshop onesie dressed up #threewaystowear

Love to you all Darlings!

#1 Wear over a stripey t-shirt, with red shoes and a bow in your hair. (A little matchy-matchy sure, but who cares I look like an adorable cupcake.)

#2 Dress the look up with a red jacket and tie a vintage scarf around your hair into a turban - instant glamour!

#3 Add a vintage cropped jacket and vintage lace gloves (these were my great grandmother's!!) for a romantic vibe.

For those of you who know me, you know I LOVE to eat. With that in mind here is the final shot:

Mmmmmm Bagels.......

Fashion Blogger Brunch

Hello Darlings,

Last sunday I somehow managed to finagle my way into the fashion blogger brunch hosted by Sylvia at 

40plusstyle

We noshed on eggs and mimosas at a darling cafe on the Bowery and i

n attendance were some of my absolute fashion heros. 

I was the baby of the group,

so 

I listened attentively to the discussion about all things fashion, style and the business of blogging. As well as Sylvia, making up the seriously fabulous table were; Jean and Valerie aka the 

Idiosyncratic Fashionistas

, Lyn aka the 

Accidental Icon

 and 

Suzanne Carillo

Here are a few snaps, taken by the (self-proclaimed) king of the table, my dearest 

Denton Taylor

 who is apparently the fashion bloggers photog of choice. Get him whilst he's hot fellow blogstars!

#Threewaystowear coming back to you next week with a cheeky little NYFW post in there too.

Love to you all my darlings!

Silk Philosophy

Hello Fashionistas,

Happy Saturday, I hope you are having a wonderful and relaxing day where ever you are.

Today on the blog I am excited share with you my collaboration with the NYC based company 

Silk Philosophy

. Run by three fabulous women "three ambitious girls, one style affair" Nishta, Milda and Rasa, this company produces handmade, limited edition, beautiful silk accessories. They use fine silk fabrics from select merchants here in NYC. Anna Sui and Oscar de la Renta are just a couple of the design house that their fabrics are sourced from - so you know you're in good company. 

Most importantly for me, this is a woman-run company using their creativity and business savvy to create something beautiful together #sisterhood

The scarf they gifted me is one of their bestsellers, a gorgeous vintage floral print which reminds me a little of a Cath Kidston design (shout-out to all you English readers with one of her tea towels currently hanging on the cooker!) It comes with a gold ring that enables you to style it in many different ways (perfect for me!)

Here it is #fourwaystowear (yeah four, I'm value for money this week biatches). 

Check out their

website

to see more of their designs. I particularly liked the red scarf with the anchor print on it, very nautical chic.

#1 Wear it as a headscarf for a little 60's cool.

#2 Wrap it around your ankle to add some zing to plain pumps

#3 Wrap it around your arm. This look made me think of that Carrie Bradshaw outfit (photo below) that she wears when helping an old lady up a curb as the lady comments "well that's a crazy outfit" 

#4 The most classic way it to wear it, around the wrist as a bracelet.

Thanks Nishta for the collaboration!

Evil Eye

Hello Fashionistas,

I hope you are all having a glorious sunday; eating eggs, drinking mimosas, taking a walk. I had a fabulous brunch this morning with the composer 

Rodney Sharman

 and artist Mohamed Ali - thanks for a fun time gentlemen, some fascinating revelations involving candlewax and greyhounds......!

Today on the blog I am wearing an oh-so-subtle sequined "evil eye" tshirt, which actually came as a free gift along with an internet order.  Here it is #threewaystowear

Have a great day darlings!

#1 Wear with some harem trousers and sandals for a comfy/casual look. Add green lipstick if you dare!

#2 Keep with the metallic theme and add a gold, high waisted skirt. The cute shoes play up the 50's cut of the skirt.

#3 For a more sophisticated look, wear with white culottes and delicate heels.
