LPA Styles It… Whistles

It should come as no suprise that Whistles is making an appearence in my ‘LPA Styles It’ series. I mean, how could I possibly do a styling tour of London stores without featuring my most-visited shop!? Now I know I say this pretty much every season, but Jane Shepardson has really pulled it out of the bag for AW12. Anyone who was mourning the end of Summer (not that we’ve really had one here in London) need only glance at these autumnal delights for a sure fire way to ward of trans-season blues. Think rich hues, luscious leathers dress-up-or-down separates, perfect party dresses and, well, you can see the rest for yourself…

Oscar de la Renta, @OscarPRGirl style…

Oscar de la Renta

Hands up who wants to be Erika Bearman? Ask this question in fashion circles and I doubt you’d see many neon-tipped talons stay down. Erika holds the much-coveted position of Senior Vice President of Global Communications for legendary New York fashion house, Oscar de la Renta. Or in layman’s terms, she’s one seriously powerful publicist. Erika, or rather @OscarPRGirl, is probably best known for her role as the voice behind Oscar de la Renta’s online presence.

LPA Loves… Charlotte Taylor

Now you all know how partial I am to a vibrant print, especially if that vibrant print happens to be adorning something super girly, preferably involving a Peter Pan collar or bow. So imagine my glee when I stumbled across Charlotte Taylor, a designer who’s very ethos is built around a love of all things beautiful yet bold!?

Chloe 60th Anniversary Exhibition


I don’t know about you but personally, I can pinpoint the exact moment, or rather series of moments, I fell in love with fashion. I was twelve years old and on holiday in Rome with my family where my father was producing the TV series ‘Fashion House’. In between visiting the aspiring designers on set (one of whom just-so-happened to be Gareth Pugh) I spent most of my days wandering awe-struck through the boutiques, much to the annoyance of the shop assistants who, understandably, weren’t overly thrilled to help a precocious pre-teen try on their high end collections. There were two dresses in particular that took my breath away, one of which was a stunning cornflower blue silk number by Chloé. The other was a fairly tarty corseted number by an Italian label and I’ll neither mention the brand or say anymore about it.

lola&grace in London…


You may remember a post I did a few weeks back about crystal conoisseur Swarovski’s super cute little sister brand, lola&grace. This Summer the label have been making us all thoroughly jealous with tales, tips and snaps from their European road trip which have arrived thick and fast on our computer screens thanks to the wonders of Facebook and twitter.
