London Fashion Week S/S15

London Fashion Week is always super exciting. I love going to the shows to see what’s coming up next in fashion and to get totally inspired. I am super lucky to call a few of the insanely talented designers my friends and going to their shows to support them after all their hard work is like being a kid in a candy store.

The day of the Michael Van der Ham show, I wore one of his SS14 dresses. Michael Van der Ham is one of my constant go-to designers for evenings and events in London. He just gets it right when wanting something special but not shouting it out loud. To get me through the longest day of LFW I paired an oversized yummy gray cardigan by JBrand for the not-so-hot, but not-so-cold London weather. Long cozy cardigans can be found on the fashion site (Topshop and Asos have some very similar sweaters) and to jazz up the casualness of the big gray cardigan I paired lace Jimmy Choo booties and my beloved Givenchy Bambi clutch.

During New York Fashion Week lots of fringe made it on to the runway so I thought what a perfect time to take out my recent find in my mom’s closet: a vintage black leather skirt which she wore when she was my age.  How sweet to think that my mom was rockin’ the same skirt twenty years ago, that I am wore to shows during London Fashion week. Tamara Mellon has an almost replica of mom’s vintage skirt in her current collection.

Fringe is everywhere and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, thank God for that because I really dig it.  I wore the skirt with a boxy shaped JBrand top (similar here). With simple black strap Givenchy shoes which every living human being should have a version of (similar here) and once again my Givenchy Bambi clutch.

A very special thank you to Buccellati for allowing me to borrow the amazing earrings. I also wore them to the Moda Operandi dinner that evening. Wearing them was heavenly, you will be mine one day.

Indian Summer Essentials, What You Need Now

September has been incredibly warm and beautiful in London, the sun has been shining and the brisk Fall has been held at bay. I’m a Midwest girl who loves the Fall (Halloween, Thanksgiving, My Birthday!), I have made a flannel plaid shirt a staple for the season since 1994. My obsession for leather jackets and leather leggings came later in life and I honestly just don’t know what I would do without them in wardrobe now.

I own leather jackets and leather leggings in an assortment of colors, black being the first color purchase for both. However, in this look I’ve moved onto a cream JBrand leather jacket and navy JBrand leather leggings which are an exclusive for the shop Trilogy here in London.

I think JBrand and Helmut Lang have mastered the leather legging department just as much as I think new California brand, Rails has mastered the flannel shirt, it maybe one of the softest things I have ever put on my body, it feels like cashmere!

Once an Isabel Marant boot lover, always an Isabel Marant boot lover. These boots are from the runway collection and definitely one of my best purchases for Fall/Winter, they will get a lot of use.

If you’re lucky enough to live in a place with warmer climates during the late fall and winter, this look can take you through fall right into the winter season (which will make me incredibly jealous come Novermber here in London).

Get the Look: 

Jacket: Jbrand, similar from Topshop here. Pants: Jbrand, again, similar from Tophop here. Shirt: Rails, similar from Gap here. Bag: Celine, similar from Asos here. Shoes: Isabel Marant. Sunglasses: Ahlem Eyewear.

A Little Bit of this a Little Bit of That…

Juliet-Angus-7Juliet-Angus-3Juliet-Angus-5Juliet-Angus-2 Juliet-Angus-1
“Less is more” but sometimes MORE is more and can be fun, which is how I would describe this look, fun!  Boyfriend jeans and a leather jacket are great transitional, summer to fall staples to have in the wardrobe and they go a long way.  I’m not really big on printed t-shirts with slogans or quotes but I could never have too many vintage rock t-shirts, especially from my favourite bands, this one being Bob Seger.  I love the super soft feel and the little holes from being worn and washed too much. So many brands are recreating new copies of vintage-like rock t-shirts because they really are perfect when you find a good one.

Of my favourite accessories from last spring, the Givenchy floral print clutch goes with just about anything so it is definitely making its way through into the Fall season. One of my other most-loved prints besides floral is leopard so I threw that into this outfit as well. There is a similar floral clutch on Asos, and you can get a leopard pair of flats just about anywhere, but Charlotte Olympia makes one of my current favourite pairs.

Finally, a great leather jacket is an investment piece for Fall & Spring, and can be used for some many different looks, so make sure you choose one that you love and will wear it a lot in both seasons.
Get the Look: 

 

Jeans: Frame Denim, these from Current Elliot are also great. Jacket: Acne. T-Shirt: Vintage, but you can find great options at Topshop. Lipstick: NARS Red Square. Earrings: Eddie Borgo. Sunglasses: Thierry Lasry. Clutch: Givenchy, similar here from Asos.

White Love Lace

White lace shouldn’t only be worn once in your life. I loved wearing white lace to my wedding and why can’t that combination be worn more often in shorter & sassier versions?!

This summer I was introduced to a new line Sophia Kah, I instantly was enamored by the lace dresses in the SS14 collection. They were the kinds you could wear for almost any evening soirée especially in London summer months.

I don’t believe in general ‘fashion rules’ so wearing white after Labor Day is absolutely fine. Depending what climate you live in, white lace can be either something that works still or needs to be bought on sale and kept for next spring.

 Get The Look: 

Dress: Sophia Kah, this one from Lela Rose, is also beautiful and Topshop has a great option here. Shoes: Rupert Sanderson, similar from Nine West here. Lipstick: NARS Red Square. Clutch: Charlotte Olympia, similar here.

Double Denim

It’s official. The 90′s are back, and one of the trends I am currently loving right now is the denim on denim look. There aren’t too many rules about pairing two denim pieces, you can choose two pieces that are a very similar shade of blue, or which are very different. I’m sure you’ll also be very excited to see that I do actually wear a different length of shorts other than daisy dukes. Wink wink. These Jbrands are great, and you can find so many similar pairs below. I love this button-up shirt from the Gap, Jcrew does a great one and so does Current Elliot. You also must check-out this ultra cozy number from Splendid.

As always, the key is in the accessorizing, and I’ll always reach for these Charlotte Olympia sandals when I’m wearing shorts. The Panama Hat adds a little fun to the ensemble. The Balenciaga is of course, a classic-must-save-up-for piece that I love. Double denim is also the perfect time to put on a statement necklace, and for those there is no place like JCrew or Bauble Bar.

 Get the Look: 

Shorts: Jbrand Jeans, similar from River Island here, and Topshop here. Shirt: Gap, a great one from JCrew here. Shoes: Charlotte Olympia, and another great pair here. Hat: Monte Cristi, Genuine Panama Hat, similar from Michael Stars here.  Lipstick: Cliniquie Mega Melon 04. Bag: Balenciaga.  Necklace: Jcrew, similar from Bauble Bar here. Sunglasses: JCrew AR Trapp Opticians.
