Olivia Palermo’s blog launches next week

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


As has been breathlessly reported for months, Olivia Palermo is launching a blog. And it arrives next week (read Fashionista’s interview with OP here). As I wrote recently, it’s the natural move for the fashion plate to move into editing her own site and as I also predicted, the focus won’t be purely fashion but lifestyle. Another smart move, there will be ‘click to buy’, not only a way to monetise (I presume it will be an affiliate model) but a good way to research what brands her readers are interested in.

LFW ss12: Anya Hindmarch’s Lost & Found

Phoebe Philo’s Celine at Bicester Village

One of the many benefits of being freelance (aside from swerving endless budget meetings and the rush hour commute) is the freedom to drop everything for an impromptu visit to Bicester Village. And so my London Fashion Week of shows and soirees ended with a jaunt to Oxfordshire hosted by the Bicester Village online team. Continue reading

Save the date: Westfield Car Bootique Blogger Tutorials

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


This Saturday I’ll be at Westfield London‘s Car Bootique along with The Style PA, and Fashion Foie Gras giving blogging tutorials to anyone who wants to start a blog or learn how to take theirs to the next level. I’ll be hosting the advanced* intermediate session for 20 people at 430pm so if you’ve been blogging for a while and feel you’ve plateaued or simply want to pick up some tips, this could be a good opportunity to pick my brains and do a bit of networking.

I have been given 5 tickets to offer my followers so if you’d like one, just email drg@disneyrollergirl.net with ‘BLOGGER TUTORIAL’ in the subject bar, a link to your blog, a phone number and a short biog. If you’d rather go to The Style PA’s beginner’s class at 130pm or Fashion Foie Gras’ intermediate session at 3pm, apply here.

*Update: Seems there aren’t as many takers for an advanced blogging class so we’ll be adding intermediates as well. Email me if you’re interested.

Blitz London launch party

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


I’ve been meaning to post these photos from the Blitz London launch for weeks. The store got the thumbs up from my fellow blogger attendees Discotheque Confusion, The Women’s Room and Bish Shops, who all agreed it was exciting, spacious and engaging. On my part, I enjoyed meeting the manager John Howlin, who immediately grabbed my vintage cheerleader’s jacket, studied the seams and proceeded to tell me its history. Continue reading
