Look Du Jour: Little Miss Sunshine

Please excuse the deeply cheesy title, I’m just slightly running out of ideas and thought that calling this look ‘lemon yellow shirt’, whilst accurate, might be a little on the dull side. As you may have noticed I’m desperately trying to wear every single one of my SS12 purchases at least twice before I have to pack them away for a good 9 months. That said, I will be able to get a few more wears out of my Summer wardrobe during New York Fashion Week.

Little Miss Sunshine

What: Sunshine yellow shirt: Boutique by Jaeger, Skirt: American Apparel, Socks: H&M, Bag: Kate Spade NY, Pumps: French Sole.

Where: Meetings in London.

As you may remember, last September GANT very kindly took me to NYFW as their guest for two days of wining, dining and general pampering… Oh and of course, a couple of fashion shows thrown in. This time around I’m taking myself out for the whole shebang, an exciting but fairly costly endeavour especially when you consider quite how many outfits I’m going to need! Being the cold-fearing Brit I am, last year I stuffed my case with coats, hats, gloves and layers. Naturally, it was absolutely sweltering and I spent most of my time feeling pretty uncomfortable. Well I’ve learnt my lesson and this season I’ll be using New York Fashion Week as a chance to indulge in pastels, florals and summertime delights galore, after all, there’ll be plenty of cashmere wearing opportunities back in London!

GIVE-AWAY! Diesel private gig tickets


Yep, it’s another give-away… Not that I’m trying to bribe you to keep following La Petite Anglaise or anything. No seriously, the last event Diesel hosted was such a laugh that when they offered me 6 tickets for their next (and possibly even better) one to give to you dear readers, it would have been plain mean for me to say no! On Wednesday 22nd August Diesel will be hosting a super exclusive private gig with FRIENDS performing, Hanna Hanra Djing and a ‘special guest’ who’s identity even I don’t know yet. Plus there’ll be an open bar, glamourous guests and no doubt large supplies of delicious cupcakes. For a chance to win tickets for you and a friend, just follow these simple steps…

Hudson Jeans introduces the ‘Juliette’

As you may have noticed, I’ve recently developed a bit of a jeans obsession. Much like my handbag habit, this newly discovered weakness for cult denim hasn’t exactly done wonders for my bank balance. But considering the magical effect on my wardrobe (not to mention the leg lengthening properties of great jeans) I’d say it’s definitely worth it! There are few things in life more satisfying than discovering the wonder of a brand you’ve never tried before so imagine my joy when LA denim label, Hudson Jeans invited me to trial one of their new season styles, the ‘Juliette’.

Look Du Jour: Sunday Chic

Sunday Chic

What: Top & Shorts: Boutique by Jaeger, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Hairband: Accessorize, Sandals: Gap.

Where: Shopping and strolling in London.

Here we have yet another early Spring purchase that had yet to have made it out of my wardrobe until now! I snapped up this little green number from Boutique by Jaeger waaay back in April and finally took it for it’s first outing it last Sunday. My mum was in town so we spent the day shopping in Westbourne Grove and lounging in Hyde Park before getting suitably tipsy over large amounts of seafood and Pinot Grigio at Carluccios that evening. Oh and let’s not forget watching the EPIC three hour Brit-a-thon that was the Olympic Closing ceremony. The Spice Girls, Take That and Prince Harry all on one screen?! It was frankly almost more than I could handle.
