The Look: A Million Miles From Coachella

If you've been glued to fashion week coverage like a dry leaf to wet cement, I'm with you! New trends are on the way, but there is one current trend that is truly here to stay; and that's 70s Bohemia. If you want to keep your look simple, embrace the dippy-hippy vibe through retro accessories and funky-printed pieces. If you'd wear it to Coachella, then you're on the right track... And me? Well, I dress like I'm off to Coachella every single day...

The Ultimate London Fashion Week Cheat Sheet

 London fashion week was one heck of an eclectic rainbow and as if we expected anything less from the sartorially-brave Brits! And as a Brit myself, I know that these collections will be inspiring my wardrobe for seasons to come. I'll just have to wait for them to hit the high street first (#cheapandchic). ASOS: I'm looking at you.....

If you weren't one of the lucky ladies who saw the LFW shows first hand (jealous of you buggers), fear not!  Rachel is here with a brand new cheat sheet! After the success of my New York Fashion Week Cheat Sheet, I thought it was only fair to share the goods from England; in cheat form, of course! Each show is rounded up in three words and three pictures. Grab your umbrella, cos it's about to start raining men trends!

The Ultimate New York Fashion Week Cheat Sheet

NYFW 2015

New York; That's a wrap! What an incredible week it has been, from Tommy Hilfiger's lush, traveler chic, to the pieces that will be soon glistening on the red carpet from Marchesa. One things for sure, the Big Apple never let's us down when it comes to diversity.

And I was totally there for all of it....not. I followed along eagerly via social media, watching the new Spring-Summer 2016 trends sweep in like warm fronts across the tropics. Am I ready for a full-on London Fashion Week stalking? HELL YES!

Want a quick catch up on all the trends? You may remember my Fashion Week cheat sheets from last season.... New luxe-r? Here's every big show in three photos and three words (and in alphabetic order- Just call me The Oxford Dictionary ;) )

The Luxe For Less: The Lace-Up Trend

Raise your hand if you love a good bargain.... Thought so and you're in luck. If you're a regular reader you will know my blog's slogan: 'you don't need a million dollars to look a million bucks.' And I have taken this to a new level with my new regular feature: 'The Luxe For Less'. In this regular trend reporting feature, I will be bringing the latest catwalk and street style trends direct to your screen and, more importantly, show you how to get these looks on a shoe-string budget! 

Who approves? Oh yes!

Today's 'Luxe For Less' is all about that saucy lace-up trend. With fashion still freeze-frozen in a 70s time machine (that I want to stay in forever), the eyelet lace-up embellishment has taken over everything from shoes to dresses. So let's get laced up (sorry: dad joke) in this trend and get our luxury fash fix for less!
