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…
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’.
Remember the step-by-step guide to bareMinerals delicious new ‘Supernaturals’ collection I posted a couple of days ago? Well those lovely folk not only gave me a much-needed glam-over but also agreed to give one of you the entire set so you can recreate the look yourself without having to fork out for a palette of your own. To enter just follow these three oh-so-simple steps…
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.
First Ralph Lauren, then Tibi and now Gap too are forsaking models in favour of creatives for their latest advertising campaign. Is the age of the professional beauty coming to an end? Somehow, I think not – you only need look at the meteoric rise of cover girl/mini-mogal Karlie Kloss to know that ‘supers’ are still very much in demand – and admittedly actresses have long since been favoured for such lucrative contracts. But it is interesting that so many high profile labels are now choosing to musicians, artists and Djs to be the ‘face’ of their brand.
