Monday Must-Have: J.W. Anderson for Topshop

Good Morning readers and happy Monday. Not only that but happy London Fashion Week! Last week I ran a little poll over on Facebook, asking you guys to let me know how much London Fashion Week coverage you wanted to see. The majority were in favour of full coverage and I have so much to write about after my trip there over the weekend that I have decided to devote the whole week on the blog to sharing my experiences. I wasn’t invited to the big catwalk shows but I’ll be sharing an edited selection of the widely available catwalk images as I review them. Alongside that, I spent some time snapping the fashion week attendees and am going to bring you 3 posts of street style. Everything from the weird to the wonderful! Plus you’ve got a special edition What to Wear to look forward to and my personal highlight, a look at the Whistles SS13 collection. It’s not going to be my usual style, expect to see a LOT of pictures and not as much talking from me, then normal service will resume next week. I hope you enjoy it!

Continuing the London Fashion Week theme, todays must have Monday Must-Have ties in with fashion week nicely. Today, J.W. Anderson is showing his collection on the Topshop Newgen stage. Topshop do a lot of work with emerging fashion talent and as a part of this you might have seen the collaboration that launched last Friday of his capsule collection, J W Anderson for Topshop. Hands up, the majority isn’t really my style, (although there are some great stripy t’shirts and jumpers) but I fell for this tortoise print and the selection of items in it. If you want to invest in anything, how about the iPhone case or notebooks? Quirky animal prints remain big news for this season so you can be sure you’ll be right on trend.


PS come back at lunchtime for a look at the first set of street style snaps 😉

Monday Must-have: Industrial chic lighting

Those of you who are on an interiors kick right now are going to LOVE todays must-have. It is a style steal!

If like me, you love that industrial eclectic look of multiple vintage bulbs hanging bare from the ceiling, but feel that getting an electrician in to put holes all over your ceiling is a step too far (for now!) then brace yourselves – I have a solution.

Next has designed an incredibly budget friendly way of getting the look with this 6 bulb pendant light.

Next Islington light – £65

The mixed glass shades are adjustable and even the ceiling fitting is vintage in style – Salvage chic all for £65. What a bargain!

Get yourself over to Next to investigate and while you’re there, check out the rest of the lighting department – the high street is really giving designer lighting a run for it’s money these days!



Monday Must-Have: Foxy Knitwear

What’s this we have here? It’s a new post series that’s what! Allow me to fill you in.

Just like Friday Frock but without the restriction of it being a dress, every week Monday Must-Have is me sharing the single item that I’m lusting over and your week simply is not complete without. Like today, it might be a fashion item, or a lust-worthy pair of shoes, a pretty make-up palette, a book, a cushion, something for the kitchen… you’re going to have to pop along and find out. Its a short and sweet post so you can read it without missing a beat whilst getting up to speed with those Monday morning situations at work or if you feel particularly naughty you can click on through and distract yourself for a little longer. 😉

This afternoon I’ll be talking more about some changes that are happening at FF HQ, but for now, here’s my must have.

Now it’s finally September, I’m allowed to start talking about it right? Autumn looming, the leaves are already falling and I am obsessing over knitwear, earthy tones and crisp days for walks followed by pub lunches. And when I’m doing all of the above, I want to be wearing the jumper below.

Aubin and Wills Portland Jumper £125

Aubin and Wills is a recent dot on my radar and I think their style really lends itself to Autumn. Sophie Dahl is modelling for Aubin and Wills this season and it’s worth hopping over to the site just to see the stunning images of her wearing the collection. I’m going to struggle to keep this to my only purchase this season.

The Portland Jumper is also a much friendlier way of ticking of the statement knit trend that I posted about a while back now, no scary sequins, just modern british design.

Beautiful, no?
