Whether you’re heading to a festival on your own this year or with the family, one thing you won’t be able to avoid is festi fashion.
So embrace it. Channel your inner hippy and go for a floral garland headband – seriously, they are everywhere.
Plus, you can get them for little girls too.
And get in on the action yourself with the Rock n’ Rose design.
Instagram is brilliant isn’t it? I mean really brilliant.
This week I spent hours visiting all the high street Press Days to see what we will all be buying for AW13. And because it is positively encouraged at these events, I took lots of pictures and Tweeted and Instagrammed and Pinterested the social media heck out of it all. Hashtag exhausting. read more…
I’m a big fan of Mer Mag, a gorgeous site designed to inspire creative play which was founded by Merrilee Liddiard.
As well as posting visual treats of her own, Merrilee also sometimes pops up on other sites to show off her crafty ways (crafty in a good way, obvs).
Boden has long been a go-to site for the kids (so cute), but for a long time it hasn’t been a destination for fashionistas – unless you loved a floral frock.
But in the past few seasons the brand has massively upped its game. The new ad campaigns are cool, fun, vibrant and quirky enough to please core customers and new ones alike.
And last week I went to their AW13 press day.
There were some stand-out pieces, including amazing Nordic inspired knits, polka dot jumpers (very J Crew) and some gorgeous collared dresses.
But it was the art direction of the show that really wowed me. Taking over several rooms in London’s Somerset House, the event was a visual feast – and gave me loads of ideas.
Boden say their creative visionaries are Amanda, Sam and Justine – ladies, you did them proud.
Here’s a flavour of what I saw at the event.
(PS And if Boden want to off-load any of the eBay sourced and reupholstered furniture afterwards, please call me!)
