“Blink” Events: Bestival’15 and the Summer of Love

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Now that we have got Wilderness, Camp Bestival and Notting Hill Carnival out of the way we can focus all of our attention on our final festival of 2015. Our grand finale festival event is always the brilliant Bestival. If you don’t have tickets I think there are a few still available if you get your skates on, and once you have those tickets the next thing on your Bestival ‘things to do’ list must surely be the preparation of your outfit.

This year’s theme is ‘Summer of Love’ and so we’ve decided to help you out with some inspiration. In our opinion, to nail this look you need the three F’s. That’s flowers, fringing and a flippin’ big smile. We’ve headed right back to ’69 which was the original Summer of Love and the year of Woodstock. We hope this helps focus your mind and looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

“Blink” Beauty: Wilderness’15 Sparkles!

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Here’s the first drop of our coverage from the wonder that is Wilderness festival. What a fabulous sunshiney time we had. Thanks to all of you who stopped your revelry for a moment so that Chloe could take your picture. You all look AMAZING!

Each year we’ve been to Wilderness we notice a slight change in the main looks being rocked, as well as the makeup and accessory choices adorning those looks. We know it’s pretty much going to be a variation on a shiny, happy, flower-crowned, sparkle-fest which is always good with us. The slight change this time as far as festival faces were concerned was that those sparkles were bigger, bolder and a bit nuttier than ever. It’s an opportunity to absolutely turn your back on what’s news in carefully crafted, but ever so boring contouring and strobing, and instead go full on for fabulous colour, stencils, twinkles and stick ons!

“Blink” Beauty: Be your most sparkly self at Bestival

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

We do hope that you enjoyed our introductory Bestival post. This one is dedicated to a festival beauty look that we saw lots of at Wilderness, and the sparkly festival make up trend looked wonderful at Bestival too.

I am intrigued to see whether any of this translates to real life, and I find myself hoping that it might. I think we could all do with a little more light heartedness and whimsy in our lives and what better way than a sweep of stardust and spangles? I think it also provides a wonderful contrast to all of that heavy-handed, obsessive, Kardashian-inspired, video-tutorial-driven, seriously nuts contouring business. I should think this is a sight faster to achieve too!

“Blink” Events: Desert Island Disco-ing at Bestival 2014

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

Wowsers, what a weekend! The sun shone on the Bestival fields of joy and made an amazing event even more incredible. Thanks to Megan who pitched her tent and hit the party for us. Today you get to rest and recuperate in readiness for London Fashion Week!

This year, Bestival seems to have outdone itself. Not only was the ‘Desert Island Disco’ theme stunningly embraced by the fancy-dressed crowd, Robin Hill Country Park was transformed with beautiful installations, swathes of sandy beaches and a very tropical-island-looking procession of utterly beautiful, awe-inspiring costumes.

Let’s not loose track of the fact that this is essentially a music festival though, and the line up was unbelievably exciting topped off for us by Sam Smith (smashing it again), Outkast and Chic as well as loads of brilliant DJ sets and exciting pop up events.

We’ll kick off our coverage with some shots to set the scene…

And last but not least, Bestival set a new world record for the largest disco ball ever, launched high into the night sky and ending the festivities in utterly magical, appropriately bonkers style!

“Blink” Accessories: Wilderness gets Spangled

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Did you spot the pictures of Cara Delevingne wearing some rather special shades at Wilderness festival?

We did, and we also saw a few other sartorial front-runners knocking about in these dino-tastic sunnies too. When we found the source of these super sunglasses we were very happy campers indeed. These are the work of Spangled and we met up with Sarah Jane, the founder and designer, as well as the rest of the Spangled team.

If you missed shopping with them at Secret garden Party or Wilderness, you can buy from their online shop.

“Blink” Retail: Rosa Bloom defines Wilderness style

Monday, August 18th, 2014

We hope you’ve been enjoying our coverage from Wilderness festival. We’re almost through it, but before we finish up we wanted to share with you the heart of this festival’s style statement. We hope you enjoyed our summary of festival fashion trends (read that post here). Well, most of the looks that we loved the best could be traced back to this wonderful vintage meets circus costume department meets bizarre Bazaar festival boutique! This is all about the wonder of Rosa Bloom. Not a name you know? Well, we didn’t either before we were passing by and heard one of Blink London’s favourite tracks.

Yes, the Rosa Bloom girls were having a kiki. If you too would like to have an impromptu kiki, just play this video and turn up the volume…

Once we’d finished wiggling, giggling and singing I asked the girls if I could take their picture. They all look wonderful, wearing bits and bobs from Rosa Bloom.

We stepped inside and the team told us about their key pieces, signature style and the label’s inspiration, rooted in circus, theatrical, vintage-inspired costumes, clothing, and accessories. Everything is made by gifted artisans in Bali, where Rosa herself lives for part of the time. I think you can see the sunshine in every piece actually; in the colour, sparkle and lightness.

You may recognise some of the pieces in these shots. The festival fashion shots that we’ve already posted featured lots of Rosa Bloom. We came away with a gorgeously scalloped capelet created from graduated, opalescent sequins as well as a perfect pink feather headdress. We also chose some gorgeous pom pom rings that have translated pretty well from festival to real-life and cheer us up every time we pop them on.
