Shop Her Style: Kelly Brook In Black Score

IamKB Shop Her Style: Kelly Brook In Black Score %tag

You may remember me tweeting about Simeon Farrar’s new label Black Score during fashion week, you remember the one with the cute vests baring slogans of new fashion phrases, such as ‘Dior is Dope’ and “Gucci got game’, well I am pleased to say that the label is gathering a celebrity following.

Yesterday Kelly Brook posted a snap of herself on Instagram wearing one of my favourite designs the ‘Totes jel of my Chanel’ t-shirt and she is working the hell out of it – check out her pout, her red manicure and that bejewelled mobile cover – she is too cute!!!

You can pick up the vest version of Kelly’s tee on Black Score’s online shop for £35, or maybe you prefer ‘Tom Ford is my homeboy’ or ‘You had me at Prada’ – or if like me you are obsessed with Choupette why not go for this ‘Lagerfeld’s a pussy – XOXO Choupette’ t-shirt for £40.

I was trying to end this blog with a witty new fashion phrase of my own that Simeon might print on the next batch of vests – they were all terrible – which got me thinking about doing an ironic blogger line in the style of Man Repeller and her ‘All blogs post the same stuff’ tee from New York Fashion Week. How about - ‘Blogger equals blagger’, ‘Dear blogger’, or my all time favourite blogger put down ‘Your stats are how low’.

What would you like to see in Black Score’s next collection?

A couple of weeks ago I shared the news that one of my favourite illustrators/designers Simeon Farrar was designing an exclusive collection for ASOS, well the Woodland Creatures are now ready to buy. Each t-shirt, whether long or short-sleeved is £55 each, so it means the only hard decision is which one to buy first!!!

1. Kate Mouse // 2. Nuts Squirrel // 3. I’m An Otter Deal With It // 4. Bunny Face with Bow Tie // 5. Fantastic Fox // 6. Deer // 7. Howling Wolves // 8. We’re So in Love // 9. Mouse with Bow Tie // 10Toad in Pyjama’s // 11. You’d Better Go in Disguise // 12. Fox with Shirt and Tie.

Which one is your favourite? I am still edging towards the bunny face with bow tie but I do love the baseball-style shirts especially the howling wolves.

Cute Animal Alert: Simeon Farrar T-Shirts for ASOS

SimeonFarrarASOS1 Cute Animal Alert: Simeon Farrar T Shirts for ASOS %tagWhen designers I gush about do an affordable collection I am sold before I have even seen a piece, I loved Olivia Rubin for Dorothy Perkins, I adore the countless collaborations coming from H&M and Topshop, and I am getting very excited about Simeon Farrar’s exclusive range of t-shirts coming soon to ASOS.

Inspired by woodland creatures, the collection of t-shirts features a number of archived prints including my favourite and beloved Kate Mouse and the bow-tie bunny that I totally need, as well as a couple of exclusive new styles including foxes, deers, and frogs.

As well as the t-shirts being extremely cute, the best bit is that the 12 prints with styles for both men and women will sell for only £55 each – this means you can snap up a designer print without it costing the earth.

I seriously can’t wait to see the whole collection, but I already think that I am going to need the bow-tie bunny and deer in my wardrobe for fashion week – roll on the end of August when they hit ASOS!!!

Which animal gets your vote?

Shopping: All About The Jubilee

jubilee Shopping: All About The Jubilee %tag

I love a good celebration, whether it is my birthday **hint, hint it’s this weekend**, a wedding, or an anniversary, so The Queen’s DIamond Jubilee is right up my street. Not only am I becoming a little bit of a royalist but I am loving that so many fashion brands have got behind the Union Jack, which if I do say so myself is by far the prettiest flag!!!

There are so many cool Jubilee-related items out there and I am loving places like Selfridges and Liberty’s that have put together dedicated Jubilee pop-ups and gorgeous window displays. It was hard narrowing down my choices for this special Jubilee shopping edit, but here are my 15 must-have/wishlist purchases:

1. Tatty Devine Crown Tiara, £66 exclusive to Selfridges – this is the perfect finishing touch to any Jubilee outfit.

2. Thomas Sabo Crown Charm, £59 – I am a Thomas Sabo addict, I love a good charm and this beauty complete with a real diamond would be the perfect addition to any bracelet.

3. House of Holland Tea Towel, £25 from Browns – leave it to Henry Holland to bring cheeky to the Jubilee – I love this slogan tea towel.

4. Ice-Watch Union Jack Watch£75 - put together my new fav watch brand and a patriotic face and I am there!!!

5. Nails Inc Jubilee Crystal Colour, £15 – inspired by the Union Jack this is a fun nail varnish featuring red, blue and silver glitter, it also comes with a crystal cap and a patriotic British themed gift box.

6. Aspinal of London Jubilee Clutch, £595 – OK granted very pricey but very pretty, this clutch is limited to just 50 and each one is numbered. I love the studded Union Jack and the iconic queen’s head silhouetted in vibrant colours.

7. Topshop Corgi Shopper, £10 – well I couldn’t miss out including The Queen’s favourite dog now could I – plus if you are a little fed up of the red, white and blue colour-scheme this could be perfect for you.

8. Stella & Dot Elizabeth Bracelet, £26 – this bracelet is not only cute but 20% of the proceeds will go directly to The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.

9. Simeon Farrar Great Britain Kitten T-shirt, £45 – I am a big fan of Simeon Farrar and this is the cutest Jubilee-inspired piece that I’ve seen a cool kitten with punk rock on his paws – seriously, what’s not to love!!!

10. Filofax Jack Vintage Personal Organiser, from £17 – want something patriotic and practical? Well this Filofax is perfect, comes in two sizes pocket or personal – I love the matt finish.

11. Pretty Ballerinas Commemorative Crown Slipper, £189 – love these suede slippers that pay tribute to The Queen with an elegant crown motif on the toes.

12. Maggie Angus Silver Queen’s Jubilee Crown Necklace, £20 – I have to admit I didn’t realise how pretty crown’s were until looking at all the Jubilee pieces, this quirky silver-mirrored acrylic necklace is fun. It also comes in gold but I think I prefer the silver.

13. Ted Baker Lowbow Purse Union Jack, £79.20 at John Lewis – bows, Union Jacks and a dachshund I am sold!!! How sweet is this leather purse?

14. Alexander McQueen Silk Chiffon Shell Patchwork ‘God Save McQueen’ Scarf, £445 – want to rebel a little against the monarchy? Well not work this Union Jack-printed McQueen scarf.

15. Barbie Collector Royal Wedding William and Catherine Doll Set, £66.19 – I am sad that The Queen doesn’t have her own Barbie, I would have loved to add that to my collection, but Mattel did do one to celebrate Will & Kate’s wedding. I felt at £99 it was a little pricey but not you save over £30 I think I might need to buy it.

Are you as excited as me for the Jubilee?

LFW Day 3: My Style – Kate Mouse Hits Fashion Week

MyStyleDay3LFW4 LFW Day 3: My Style   Kate Mouse Hits Fashion Week %tag

I can’t believe it is Sunday already, this has been one of the busiest London Fashion Weeks for me and I am so happy as I do love the buzz of a catwalk show and all the drama and socialising that goes with it. Whereas Saturday is official being re-named ‘the day that rains’, today the sun is shining, which means I could finally get my sunglasses out.

Quiet day for me today, I have a number of shows in but I have only done one, the Prophetic show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout, so I can catch up on editing my images and bringing you all the news from the first two days, seriously I have a lot of stuff to share, and generally taking a breather before the madness that is my Monday schedule.

Today’s look is kind of casual, mainly because I was only around for a few hours, but also one of my favourite looks so far. I do love a good maxi skirt and this is one of my most comfortable and surprisingly long enough ones from New Look; I paired it with my Simeon Farrar t-shirt, Long Tall Sally leather jacket, and finishing off the look is my Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag.

My Style Details:

MyStyleDay3LFW2 LFW Day 3: My Style   Kate Mouse Hits Fashion Week %tag

You know I love t-shirts, well my Simeon Farrar printed Kate Mouse tee is fast becoming one of my favourites and most versatile pieces, I really just love it and couldn’t resist working it to fashion week.

MyStyleDay3LFW3 LFW Day 3: My Style   Kate Mouse Hits Fashion Week %tag

Fashion week wouldn’t be complete without getting out my trust blue Rebecca Minkoff, this bag is one of my all time favs not only is it a great colour to add a pop to my mainly black wardrobe, but it is also an ideal size for all my belongings. Today I have paired my RM with my new zebra printed New Look scarf, I was wearing to keep the chill off but I love attaching scarves to bags and I thought this worked well.

MyStyleDay3LFW1 LFW Day 3: My Style   Kate Mouse Hits Fashion Week %tagMyStyleDay3LFW5 LFW Day 3: My Style   Kate Mouse Hits Fashion Week %tag

Finishing off my look today are my Calvin Klein sunglasses, when it comes to dark frames I am more of a dark brown than black type of gal and these are my wear anywhere and everywhere glasses. LFW really does look better in the sun!!!

**Thanks to good pal Bumpkin Betty for taking my snaps – if you haven’t already seen her website you really are missing out**

AW11 Press Day: Simeon Farrar At Liberty London

libertyaw11sf3 AW11 Press Day: Simeon Farrar At Liberty London %tag

I am avid fan of Liberty London, as department stores goes they serious are ahead of the game in every area in my opinion, granted they may not be the biggest, but have some great designers, exclusive offerings and excellent visual outlook to all that they offer.

I have taken many pictures of the stores windows, I am addicted to the Paper Room, and I love the gorgeous scarves *best in London*, and now I have added the amazing and talented wares of London-based designer Simeon Farrar to the many reasons to swing by and shop!

I have to admit I have admired the prints of Simeon Farrar for a while, I love that all his garments are hand printed or dyed, and so it means each piece is a one-off, which I truly love in designer items, as if you are going to spend more than average it has to be special.

Well for autumn/winter 2011, I have fallen head-over-heels for the cute teddy bear print, this canvas bag with leather straps has to be mine, and I can’t have the bag without this dusky pink scarf as that wouldn’t be right!!!

libertyaw11sf1 AW11 Press Day: Simeon Farrar At Liberty London %tag

I also loved this robot print with a heart *below* – so cute. I like fun and quirky and Simeon Farrar ticks all the boxes for me, it doesn’t cost the earth, the bags are around £80 and the scarves are from £75, for one-of-a-kind that is a pretty good investment.

If you can’t wait for AW11, well why not check out what Liberty London has to offer from Simeon Farrar – my favourite pick has to be the Kate Mouse Tote Bag, £80, an exclusive piece for Liberty.
