If you haven’t already guessed by my name I love Barbie and I get very excited about designer collaborations, from Karl Lagerfeld and Moschino to the latest collab with Fashion East emerging designer Matty Bovan, who if you haven’t have heard is pretty special when it comes to bold, feminine statements and he has designed an amazing collection of tees featuring hand-drawn graphics to celebrate Barbie’s 58th Birthday. There are four tees in the collection and I have to be honest I found it hard choosing just one, but there was something so beautiful about this doll with her statement 80s earrings
Anyone else excited to see warmer, brighter weather on the horizon? I love the change from winter to spring as it means I get to embrace spring florals, bare legs, and cropped denim jackets, as well as enjoy the lighter nights, afternoons in the garden and the general glow that comes with the changing of a season. It can be hard sometimes to switch out of winter dressing, I’m so used to wrapping up warm in lots of layers, I’ve become a little attached to my chunky knits, jeans, and boots that it is hard to make the switch, so
Denim, especially jeans have always been a big part of my wardrobe, and to be honest I don’t see that changing anytime soon, but I have noticed over the years how I seem to rotate between styles. Once upon a time, you couldn’t get me out of flares, I loved them, so much so, I remember making a pair even bigger while at university that included a whole lot of yellow fabric and cute stars embellished up the side, I was obsessed with them. Then came the time of the cropped jeans, a whole summer dedicated to the shorter style.

When you are a lover of black, you become quite good at working statement accessories, and my latest love affair is with floral boots. OK, I might be a little late to the party, but hey, who says you have to be the first, you just have to do it your way, and I’ve totally fallen for these Ego ‘Lala’ beauties, the pink floral pattern just makes me think of blossom and a pop of pink is always good with black. I wore this look to London Fashion Week on Day 4, I know I skipped days 2 and 3,

For me, outfits, especially during London Fashion Week, are a time to play a part, stay true to my style, but still have a little fun. For day 1, I was totally channeling the girlies in John Hughes 80s flicks, like Deb and Hilly in Weird Science, FYI, great film if you haven’t seen it – do, now. Seriously, why you still reading this find it on Netflix or something!!! OK, so for all you guys that have seen it, this is my 80s style look, complete with over-the-top side ponytail – thank you The Apartment and Priv, funky tights, metallic
