FRENCH CONNECTION AW15

FCUKcover
Dearest Fashion bunnies,

I’m proud to present a gorgeous glimpse of French Connection‘s effortlessly trans-seasonal AW15 Womenswear collection.

Imagine the perfect Autumn/Winter wardrobe inspired by 1970’s and 1980’s stylised Rock icons, set in a black, grey, khaki, camel, cream, white, yellow, pink, and red colour story.

Think longline shirts, coats and blazers, winter florals, Victoriana-esque tops and maxi dresses, leather skirts, skinnies and jackets, slogan tees, cool bombers, glitzy bodycon midis, easy wear trousers and jumpsuits, cutesy mini dresses, and bold chunky knits.

PUERTO FLORIDITA

popup-7
Last night, I visited well-renowned Soho venue Floridita and stepped aboard their nautical summer pop up – Puerto Floridita located and sectioned off underneath the restaurant’s iconic sweeping grand staircase. I was instantly transported to Cuba on a brightly coloured deck where I sat back, relaxed and enjoyed the vibes.

If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of good vibes, and Puerto Floridita certainly did not disappoint! I enjoyed the relaxed yet vibrant and swayed to the live sounds of the funk, soul, and Latin-American Salsa bands playing throughout the night.

I tried each of signature cocktails curated by South America’s finest sparkling wine Chandon. The Pina Spritz in particular was my favourite. It’s a mixture of Chandon filled with crushed ice, garnished with a slice of fresh pineapple and served in a cabernet glass.

To complement the signature cocktails, Executive Chef Sascha Rieb served up an extensive on-board bar snack menu. Small plates featured Olive mixes, Soft Shell Crab with Chipotle Ketchup, Chilli Squid Rings and Garlic and Chilli King Prawn Cocotte. Swoon.

The bar is open from 5.30pm-3.00am, with live music and DJs from Tuesday-Saturday. It can also be hired for exclusive private bookings.

If you’d like to find a a fun, summer Soho hideaway, Puerto Floridita is a must-visit – whether the sun’s shining outside or not.

10/10 from me.

*NEW SEASON STYLE ALERT!*
IMG_8892
The weather’s still a little on the cold side at the moment but ASOS White’s SS15 collection launches this week. Whoop! Anyone up for a spot of wardrobe planning? It’s all about forward thinking after all.

Let’s just ignore the nippy climate for now and show some love to ASOS White SS15.

IMG_8333

I love the laidback Cali cool vibe. ASOS does it so well. A predominantly white, silver, and citrus colour story featuring graphic linear prints on boxy dresses, shirts and shorts, floaty cotton midis, stonewash denim, lightweight knits, and day-to-night jumpsuits juxtaposed with cool kicks. Oh yes.

I just need the weather to play ball now.
