Out and cross code

From Fashionistable
I couldn't resist this shot all the elements were in the the right place at the right time. Would I have noticed so much if the crossing man above her head had been red? Probably not.

Out and about....Palais de Tokyo

From Fashionistable
I have photographed Elle twice but this is the better picture. In the second one the light is too harsh. I embarrassed myself when asking her for this shot as I fell up the steps at her. Her outfit here is a great mix of fabrics, the soft cotton of the dress paired with the leather jacket. Then completed with the red accents on her lips, nails and bag. Elle is the senior fashion editor at Lucky Magazine.

Ekaterina is a writer and designer. She has her own blog too, you can see it here. Her dress is by Ted Baker and her jacket is vintage. She told me who her shoes were by but I can't make out my handwriting again.

Royal Wedding Garden PArty

We are celebrating the Royal Wedding of William and Kate on friday (We all noticed that they misspelled her name on the TV this week on an advert!)

Anyway everyone is welcome to join in with us by having an informal picnic on the village green from 2pm on the friday 29th April.

Out and's all in the smile

From Fashionistable
I met Kamilla near Carnaby Street. She is a model with Premier and was on her way to a casting. When I asked her to tell me something surprising about herself she told me she loves to smile. This is surprising as it is not something models get to do a lot. She does have a lovely smile though. For her casting she was wearing a scarf by Balenciaga, a vintage playsuit, coat from Zara, boots by Tods, glasses by Prototype and is carrying a Vivienne Westwood bag.

Out and a cinch

From Fashionistable
From Fashionistable
Phoebe is a 1st year fashion student at Middlesex Uni. Her own personal style is so amazing that I am so looking forward to seeing her designs on the catwalks and the shelves. She told me she takes all opportunities as they come along and boy are they coming her way. Just before we met she had been invited to appear on a TV dating show "You've been spotted", she has appeared in advertising for Swatch watches and is in a film which is going to Cannes called Separate Ways. See what I mean, just look what an open mind will bring you. When I ask for surprises from my subjects I sometimes get them in abundance. Her look today is comprised of glasses from Therapy, a vintage scarf and skirt, H&M top and tights, corset from What Katie Did, shoes from Miss Sixty and gloves from Topshop.
I couldn't resist the 2nd shot as she walked away, even the soles of her shoes are co-ordinated. Wonderful. (A quick note to girls who don't take the prices off the soles of their shoes - see how important it is that you do. It is just important to make a good impression from the back as it is from the front.)

Out and about....Laura from my987wardrobe

From Fashionistable
I first met Laura about a year ago, just after she set up her website my987wardrobe, where everything was £9.87. She has now expanded into a premium range 1987 (or £19.87). The reason for doing this is it has been a challenge for her to find good quality garments for her site in the £9.87 range. As her aim is to bring us good quality at a reasonable price she has had to look further up the price bracket. So far the new range, is selling really well, so it has been a positive move "everyone is happy to pay that little bit extra".  Her floral tired D&G inspired dress is from the new range and has just also been featured in Grazia, you can also see and buy it here.

Out and about....who's that girl, part 2 and the answer to part 1

From Fashionistable
I think she is a French actress. She looks so familiar but try as I may I cant quite put my finger on just who she is. I have given up trying to figure it out for myself so it is over to you guys. Anyone know? Answer: see comments - Claire Dhelens stylist for Paris Vogue.

From Fashionistable
After searching high and low the answer to my who's that girl part one came really easily last night as I was flicking through my April copy of Bazzar, suddenly there she was. Meet Kim Hersov, editor-at-large of Harpers Bazzar.

Out and about....walking with Jesus

From Fashionistable
I met Cassie as she was walking Jesus through Soho. Her and her boyfriend named him Jesus as he was born on Christmas day, he is cute huh. Cassie works part-time for Vivienne Westwood, she also has her own business in Camden called Guts for Garters. When I asked her where favourite place in London was she said it was Soho "it is the heart and soul of London. I wouldn't change it for the world." Very happily she also lives there. Her surprising story was that she had just done a naked photo shoot the day before. For this shot she is wearing, a vintage overcoat, jacket by Child of the Jago, H&M trousers, Joux Joux shoes. Her glasses are Ray Ban and belt is by Vivienne Westwood.

Out and about....enjoying London

From Fashionistable
Laina and Guoquan are both 2nd year students and both from China. Laina is studying jewelery design and Guoquan, magazine publishing. They both like the shopping and life in London. Liana's favourite place is Piccadilly Circus and Guoquan's is Mayfair. Laina draws inspiration from nature and photos for her jewelery designs and Guoquan's surprise is he loves to dance in nightclubs. Laina's look is compromised of glasses from Chanel, Burberry coat, her top and shorts were bought in China, berry tights from Wolford, shoes Miu Miu and I cant make out where she got her bag from, maybe Celene. Guoquan is wearing a hat from Marc Jacobs, jacket from Acne, shirt and jeans Topman, shoes Louboutin and is carrying a Celine bag.

Out and about....sunny smile

From Fashionistable
I have just realised I have another London College of fashion student today. This time it is Katie, she on her foundation year. Next she would like to study textiles. Her style influence is classic (Chanel), elegant and smart wear. She has a Brick Lane project she does where she puts up pictures in gold coloured frames and watches peoples reaction. Saying that she likes doing unexpected things. Here Katie is wearing a gillet, dress and boots from Zara, jacket from River Island, leggings from Public Beware and is carrying a Louis Vuitton bag.

Out and about....close up

From Fashionistable
Although you saw the full length shot of Victoria in the Phoenix magazine story I wanted to bring you this shot too as I find it hauntingly beautiful. Victoria is a 2nd year student at the London College of Fashion and is studying Marketing and Promotion. To supplement her income she works a couple of days a week and weekends at the photo agency Exposure. Her style influence depends on the occasion. For work and college it is comfortable and easy. When she is dressing up it is Victoria Beckham. Her surprising thing was that her boyfriend is a paparazzi photographer.

Out and about....the Strand

From Fashionistable
I want to dress like Victoria. I really love her look. This was my very last shot from LFW. I had decided to go home and was crossing the road away from Somerset House as they were crossing towards me. They were too good to resist. I don't know anything about them what they do or what show they were going to see (if any). I wish I did, it would be great to be telling you their story now.
