Draw In Light SS13

I don't know whether they're doing it on purpose or not, but it seems Draw In Light are on a mission to bankrupt me. Season after season, their collections never fail to make me fall in love, and their SS13 offering is no exception.

This season, the focal point of their collection is this stunning "Greenhouse" print, mixed with their signature whimsical silk screen printed swirls of soft greys, blues, pinks and reds. As with all Draw In Light designs, each piece is oversized, slouchy and decadently comfortable (who knew that was even possible?!). Needless to say, I want it all.

Are you as in love as I am?

Editorial: Who's Jack Magazine

What's this? A blog post? Surely not!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. Life has gotten very busy as of late, fortunately in a good way.

The good news is I have some shiny new published editorial to share with you - yippeee!

Although, when I say "shiny" and "new", that's not entirely true. I actually styled this editorial a year ago for Alexandra Cameron. As mutual fans of the book and film, we decided to base the story on "The Virgin Suicides", written by Jeffrey Eugenides and directed by Sofia Coppola. It took a while, but now the issue of Who's Jack is out and I can share it with you. Better late than never, eh?

The majority of the clothes are from Rokit vintage and Fable London, as well as some of my own vintage collection. I absolutely love these photos, and it was a nice change of pace to use such simple yet beautiful pieces.

I've talked about my not-so-secret inner goth in a few posts before. It first came into existence in my early teens, when I realised that having pale skin and dark hair wasn't such a bad thing. After a few dodgy experiments with black hair dye and dark purple lipstick, I decided that I could still enjoy elements of gothic style without betraying my love for high fashion, and fortunately there are a number of brilliant designers around that make this very easy for me.

One such label is momocreatura, which has quickly become my new favourite jewellery brand. The 'Nearly Dead' collection in particular has become an all-consuming object of lust for me, and I am now making it my mission to save up for every perfect piece.

Editorial: SYN Magazine online

Believe it or not, I styled this editorial nearly a year ago! It has now been published on SYN Magazine's website. Despite how long it's taken, it's been worth the wait and I'm really excited to share it with you now.

Although I love these pictures, I also want to share a couple of ones that didn't make the cut...

Sara Ebbett AW12/13

In recent years, I've found myself increasingly attracted to scarves. I realise that that was a very strange sentence, but it's true! I'm not talking about the woolly kind your Grandma used to knit either; the ones I'm lusting after are oversized, silk and feature stunningly intricate designs.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Sara Ebbett (who is very lovely, by the way) and seeing her incredible scarves in the gorgeous fabric flesh - they are beyond stunning! Her AW12/13 collection is beautifully whimsical with subtle dark notes, which obviously appeal to my not-so-secret inner goth. Inspired by nature and Charles Darwin, Sara's hand-drawn designs mix delicate flowers with the harder side of nature - dragonflies, beetles, bees and skulls. Each scarf is huge, which means there are are endless styling opportunities and ways to wear them.

The good news is that these and other amazing designs from Sara Ebbett's SS12 collection are now available exclusively at one of my favourite online shops, Young British Designers! See you over there...
