Looking back through the LPA archives, it must seem like I’m very excited an awful lot of the time. Truth be told, I am very excited a lot of the time. The past couple of years have been a crazy, unexpected, sometimes stressful and always wonderful series of adventures that have ultimately only come about because you, my lovely readers, choose to follow La Petite Anglaise. Your loyalty, comments, occasional complaints (which FYI are much appreciated too) and all round enthusiasm for the things I myself am so, borderline worryingly enthusiastic about constantly inspires and energises me as well as enabling me to do what I love the most and begin to live out the fashion fantasy I sad in my teenage bedroom dreaming about. I know that sounds uncharacteristically cheesy but it’s the reason why I am extra excited – yep, even more than usual – to share the brand, new site with you…
I think at this point I have a pretty good idea of what my personal style is. I know fully well that I’ll never will be a cool Scandi esque minimalist, pulling off pool flats and oversized Acne with an air of paired back nonchalance. This did not, however, prevent me from doing my damnedest to channel Elin Kling when I made a quick trip to Copenhagen earlier this month. Having never before visited Scandiland, when Danish jewellery brand STORY by Kranz & Ziegler invited me to join them in Copenhagen for their SS15 presentation I thought why the hell not? A chance to check out a city hailed as one of the hippest in Europe, ogle some jewels and stay in a chic hotel; a silly thing like having an entire month of fashion week travels to organise, a new season to plan for and full site design to sign off certainly wasn’t going to put me off. And I don’t regret this slight irresponsibility. Not one bit.
What: Three Floor spearmint green lace dress (click here to buy), Kurt Geiger white clutch (similar here & here), Swarovski ring (similar here), ALDO sandals (similar here) all c/o, Dior Riviera nail polish (available here) & MAC Lady Danger lipstick (available here)
Where: Three Floor AW14 Cocktail Event followed by dinner & drinks at Soho House
It feels slightly weird to think I was sweltering in this minty lace number just a couple of weeks ago now that London’s turned all autumnal (AKA drizzle and torrential downpours every thirty minutes or so) on us. But yet, I was, and come September 3rd there will be a whole lot more summery cocktail frocks going down as I get my last blast of heat during New York Fashion Week! Not that I’m a bit smug and totally over excited or anything. This dress will definitely be coming to the Big Apple with me.
