Details- she wore flowers in her hair

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

As Summer seems to be creeping into the past, we thought we’d grab at the last few moments of sunshine and post a summery accessories story. The statement corsage was very big news last year, and still looks really relevant, especially when worn in the hair, as these are. We do love how this simple but effective floral option adds instant vintage, feminine charm to any look in a really coy way, and also solves festival hair with finesse.

It builds on the recent desire for hair ornamentation, from the resurgence of interest in the humble head scarf through to retro net veils and saucy fascinators.

Details- Hot Hosiery

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Blend unpredictable summer weather with high rise hemlines and add a need to move on from plain leggings. This is the perfect recipe to drive out innovation in hosiery. You can forget about the fail-safe fall back of opaques this Autumn.

We love these socks, especially when they are long and teamed with heels for a sexy preppy combo. Laddered and ripped tights emerged as a cool street style look over the last few months, and we love the extreme version shown below (shot on a very hot day so whats with the fur hat???). Lacey looks take this in a more delicate, vintage direction.

Blink Social- Latitude Festival, Suffolk

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

Latitude has a very friendly, creative atmosphere that draws eccentric fans of theatre, poetry, music and comedy. Set in beautiful surroundings of fields and woods it features pink sheep, gondolas and a stage in the middle of the lake! The crowd were also on the creative or artistic side in their style choices. We love the really personal looks and the cute vintage styling.

Thanks to our brilliant “Blink” correspondent, Louise, for her coverage of this event.
