Love is... A Cambridge Satchel and a Yan To dress

Doesn't a new dress make you feel like a million dollars? Actually this new dress makes me feel like ten  million dollars because I'd watched for days as my husband Yan To made it just for me.

It was supposed to be for Cybher™- but what can I say? It was simply an unrealistic expectation on his part for me to leave it hanging in my wardrobe until June. It was never going to happen and I had a meeting yesterday that needed that dress in it!

A bright, new dress calls for a new satchel so after my meeting I popped into the newly opened Cambridge Satchel Company Store in Covent Garden to buy their beautiful new Emerald Satchel that I've been lusting over.

Dress and satchel in perfect harmony.

If you are in London, you will find the new Cambridge Satchel Company store on Seven Dials, Covent Garden. A must visit for satchel freaks:)

New Agyness Deyn for Dr Martens SS13 Collection

I'm loving the new Agyness Deyn for Dr. Martens collection. This second collaboration for two of England's brightest fashion icons draws inspiration from the fiercely individual Harajuku Girls of Tokyo with their mash-up style that is, in full circle, heavily influenced by the British of punk and goth. 

Clever, I like it.

Floaty summer dresses, chunky awesome sandals and a cool eye print bag. I know of one girl who will be over the moon that she didn't blow all her birthday money on rubbish come tomorrow when the collection hits the stores.

In Aggy's own words...

"As with the A/W-12 range, I wanted the collection to be accessible. It will appeal to girls who are confident and have a strong personal expression of style and identity in the way that they dress and what this says about themselves."

My Infographic Resume

I spent some time at the weekend geeking out with the aim of creating my very own Infographic Resume. I'm pretty chuffed with the result - even if I do say so myself!

What do you think?
