London Fashion Week SS17

Better late than never, eh! If I could insert an emoji here it would be one of shame and shiftiness. Maybe even the monkey-covering-eyes which I never, ever use because frankly it’s pretty lame. Not as lame, however, as posting your London Fashion Week SS17 looks two months after the event. I reckon these outfits are still worth sharing, but you guys should really be the judge of that…

It is far, far too freezing an October morning to be reminiscing on what I wore in the glorious heat of New York Fashion Week! Mere minutes ago I was sipping a piping hot coffee, thinking about how gorgeous a crisp, chilly day it was and fantasising about new knitwear. One look at these pics, however, and all I want is H-E-A-T…

LPA x KSNY: Denim Skirt Dressing Room

The phrase “wardrobe staple” is one we hear a hell of a lot. It’s used for everything from trench coats and Breton striped tees to cashmere sweaters, LBD’s, Edie Parker customised clutches and some frankly bizarre pieces like sparkly crop tops and Christmas jumpers. One item that is most definitely, undeniably a wardrobe staple is the denim skirt. Last month, I teamed up with Kate Spade New York to do a little styling with one of their AW16 numbers…

At long, long, seriously way too long last, the moment has finally come for me to share the new and, I hope, improved La Petite Anglaise with you! To say I’m “excited” would be the mother of all understatements…

I absolutely did not want to spend another LPA relaunch day post talking about being excited, and really tried to not use that damn word again. Seriously, I even hit up thesaurus.com. It was wholly unhelpful; “groovy, arousing and lively” are NOT synonyms for “exciting” and I’m pretty sure no one has said “rip-roaring” for at least a century. Anyway, no matter how hard I’ve tried it has proved impossible avoid the excitement factor. After all, I’ve been working on this project for over six months and feel proud to have been a part of…

It’s been a while, mes amies, but that is because major and very exciting changes are coming to La Petite Anglaise! So I’ve been keeping fairly quiet and awaiting the moment I can share them all with you… But I couldn’t wait until then to share this shoot I did with Lacoste for their gorgeous new fragrance trio “Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Pour Elle”. I mean, who on earth would have the patience for that?!

This is no doubt a totally unnecessary thing to say but, obviously, I’m going to say it anyway. Coach is absolutely killing it right now. It has been for a fair few seasons tbh. I mean, it’s not as though the all American purveyor of gorgeous leather goods (and more) has ever been anything but successful. I will probably inevitably talk a bit more about that in this post but first things first, let me tell you what this is all about; Coach’s collaboration with Disney.

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…

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,…
