Hey dolls, over the weekend I decided to have a little weekend trip out into the country and get away from London. We drove out into the country to get away from the busy city life and there I was able to spend a lot of time with family as well as time with my Mac. I was able to catch up with all the fashion shows. However I was so excited to watch Milan Fashion week; Dolce & Gabbana show entitled “Italia is Love” as they are one of my favourite designers.
Not the most exotic of locations, I took the train down to Brighton this weekend, and instead of hanging out in the ever-so-popular city, we decided to go somewhere a little different: Hastings.
Once only known for fairground rides, fish & chips and old-fashioned sweet shops, Hastings is now a hub of gorgeous vintage boutiques and antique shops. Taking a walk towards the Old Town and wandering down George Street and the High Street, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of vintage we found.
Yves Saint Laurent when he said this could have been predicting the rise of vintage fashion. The idea that style is timeless is proven by how much designers and fashions prominent on today’s catwalk are heavily influenced by what’s gone before, as designers turn to previous eras for inspiration. Classics never go out of style. Period. As fashion becomes ever more mainstream and interchangeable, vintage allows the daring fashionista to retain their originality, which is the key to being stylish.
As Fashion Week in New York ends we welcome the very cool vibe London Fashion Week. I sit here in the cold months of autumn to winter only excited for the spring and summer next year to embrace the luxurious nautical, timeless monochromatic and tastefully done prints that I have observed from NYFW.
"Every season is different, the venue reflects the mood of the collection, the girl and the season"

Once again, Fashion surprises us, moving the London Fashion Week from the suggestive and classic Somerset house to Brewer Street Car Park, in the heart of Soho.
Fashion became for everyone , everyday, and while we are waiting for an exciting colourful summer, let us fall in love with the autumn/winter key pieces and get ready to change our closet and prepare ourselves to the cold London!
Sheer, mesh and lace layering is fast becoming a trend on the catwalk as we have seen from NYFW and LFW. The trend exudes edgy, sexy style and is the perfect transition from autumnal layers to cool summer chic. However, it’s not one easy to pull off in many circumstances. So, I’m here to help with a three step guide to get your sheer on!
