I know I’ve started SO many of my recent posts with a comment about how “British summertime is finally here, yay!” so I really want to not do that yet again this time. However, never could that kind of comment be more appropriate than in relation to this particular project. As discussed in many a previous post, weather isn’t really a factor in determining British summertime because frankly, it’s completely unreliable. Instead, it’s an array of long running, annual sporting events that mark the course of our supposedly sunniest season and…

Did you happen to see the pink fluff and sheer chiffon REDValentino tastic shoot I posted a few weeks ago? If so, then you may well remember that our location was Beach Blanket Babylon in Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill. As I said probably fifteen different times within that piece, Beach Blanket is a place I have a deep and long running love for. I had my 21st birthday dinner there as well as my graduation dinner. I’ve indulged in one five too many cocktails sitting on the flower strewn terrace more times than I can remember (quelle…

Summer is officially here, mes amies! Or at least, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. A spate of super sunny days over the past few weeks got my fellow Londoners and I into a state of total over excitement; whipping our knits off, al fresco drinking all over the show, strolling around smiling and sometimes even deigning to make small talk with people we don’t know on public transport… I know, right! The arrival of warm weather makes us all not only very happy but also totally deluded,…

Not a day goes by that I don’t feel incredibly, incredibly lucky to be doing what I do for a living. The blogging industry is a very new one. One that has in fact only exploded during the almost six (six!?) years since I started La Petite Anglaise. It’s also one that is constantly changing, super fast paced and highly saturated, not to mention competitive. Recently I’ve been thinking about how I can create content that I feel truly happy with and proud of, and more importantly you enjoy especially given how many…

A few weeks have passed since I hosted a soiree to celebrate the arrival of Kate Spade NY at Fenwick of Bond Street. Firstly, thank you so much to everyone who came down. I don’t know about you guys, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself… I mean, between the flowing champagne, floral print Nails Inc. manicures, ice cream shaped phone cases and colour popping Kate Spade NY attire as far as the eye could see, how could anyone not have had a ball?

I feel like I start SO DAMN MANY posts by saying “as you may have spotted on my Instagram/Snapchat last [insert day here,] I recently…” The reason for that is simple, because I do. Given that typing it’s beginning to make me lose the will to live, I can’t even imagine how bored you are with this particular phrase. So, I’m going to try not to kick off everything I post with said sentence filler… Starting from my next one, evidently. To be perfectly honest, I don’t think I Snapchatted nearly enough of…

Can you imagine a better way to spend a Tuesday afternoon than prancing around Portobello in the glorious sunshine wearing Petit Bateau? I certainly struggle to… At long, long last Spring seems to have arrived in London and you can practically hear the sound of bottles of rosé being uncorked,  the final layers of knitwear being shed and general happiness in the air. That sounds cheesy as hell but after so many months of grey and rain I’ve actually lost count, you can’t blame me for getting over excited. Add…

After my incredible first Paris Couture experience last summer I vowed that I would never ever miss one ever again. Then January rolled around and there was so much going on that I thought, ok, it will be logistically impossible to do couture week properly but maybe I could get out even just for a couple of shows? Then life, projects and “ohmigod-it’s-fashion-month-like-now panic” happened so, with a heart full of sadness, I almost accepted the fact that I wouldn’t be going at all… Almost. I was of course still…

How to cover fashion month on La Petite Anglaise has posed increasingly more of a challenge for me over the past few seasons. When I attended my first ever London Fashion Week waaaay back in 2010 I had the different challenge of attending two shows – both of which I wangled into through determination, desperation, charm and having zero shame in my clueless game – and seemingly endless time. So I wrote reviews of said shows, diaries, several features on the NewGen exhibition, “interviews” with David Koma and Mary Katrantzou that…

I almost started this post by saying something along the lines of “being a blogger, whether full time or on top of a whole other job, inevitably involves a whole lot of working weekends.” Then I realised how much of a colossal prat I sounded for so many reasons, not least the fact that so, so, SO many professions involve working weekends the challenges posed by which I and my internet dwelling peers couldn’t begin to comprehend. Anyway, my point was that shooting this video at the Glamour Beauty Festival…

Remember my Milan Fashion Week experience last Spring? I don’t expect you to, I barely do myself as so much has happened since that it feels like a lifetime ago. But a bit of reminiscing reminded me that it was wonderful. I went out with the wonderful Dsquared2 for their show then spent a couple of days having a wonderful time at the Four Seasons before swapping hotels (not the point at all, damn my need to go off on tangents!) to spend my final night in the city at the…

Time for a brief interlude from the rest of my fash month posts which I promise are coming your way very, very soon! Not ideal I know but trust me, this is worth it. I definitely don’t need to tell you (for the billionth time) quite how much I obsessively adore Kate Spade New York. Pretty much the majority of my wardrobe is made up of Kate Spade but no matter how many adorable bow coats, novelty clutch bags and playful printed or gorgeous glittery pieces I might acquire, I still…

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, probably about fifty more times within the next week, Flu. Is. The. Worst!!! The actual worst!!! I am truly rubbish at being ill, or at least accepting that I’m ill, due to my inability to stay still basically ever. It takes the kind of lurgi that renders one literally unable to do anything but lie in bed shivering, moaning and feeling like death to stop me being a stupid idiot who doses up on caffeine and Nurofen in an attempt to…

A bit of New York coming at you, mes amies! Admittedly it is *slightly* later than intended. I was so, so determined to be so incredibly prompt with all my posts over this fashion month and then I found myself blighted by some vile fluey feverish nightmare that resulted in my actually having to admit defeat and spend half of NYFW pretty much bed bound. I mean, obviously I tried to get back in the game at any conceivable opportunity but I suspect that didn’t actually help very much and as…

Remember my very recent Introducing post about the amazing Minna Parikka? Few things excite me more than learning of a brand or designer whose creations I literally NEED in my life/wardrobe so much it almost pains me.
