Learn the insider secrets of denim with me at Selfridges Denim Studio

Disneyrollergirl-Selfridges-Denim-lovers

Got plans for next Saturday afternoon? Well cancel them and hang out with me instead! I’m teaming up with Selfridges to host one of their in-store workshops to celebrate the new Denim Studio and this one is for both hardcore denim geeks and those who still haven’t found their perfect jeans.

I’ll be teaming up with a member of Selfridges’ personal shopping team and one of their expert alterations team to discuss everything there is to know about denim and jeans. Think of it as an insider’s guide to denim. So if you want to know what the emerging trends are in denim (and the how and why), the secret to knowing what to look for in fit, cut and wash, what the limitations are in remodelling a pair of denim jeans (or dress or jacket for that matter), or you just want an opinion on what looks good on you, then please come and join our masterclass.

We will be in an informal hub in the denim personal shopping area so the aim is to make this more of a relaxed conversation than a lecture. The workshop is free, just email rsvp@selfridges.co.uk to book a session – 2pm, 3pm or 4pm – on Saturday 6th July.

And if you can’t come but want questions answered, or want to send a question in advance, leave it in the comments below or email/tweet me (drg@disneyrollergirl.net, @disneyrollrgirl) and I’ll get an answer from my experts.

Ankle socks for every age

I found this great photo in National Geographic at the hairdressers (I go to Cuts in Dean St – v good if you want short hair). It reminded me that I’ve been planning a post on women in ankle socks and pumps. There are actually quite a few high profile fashion women who have made this their ‘look’ and I don’t think it looks infantile. In fact, I think it looks really cool and self assured. Take a look at Katie Grand, Lucinda Chambers, Consuelo Castiglioni, Carla Sozzani and Miuccia Prada…

First look: Studio Nicholson AW13

I’m very much liking all the new sites and brands popping up that answer my need for updated wardrobe staples. Where Winser London delivers year-round multi-taskers and The Style Director curates working woman hero pieces, Studio Nicholson has a sportier, more youthful approach. (more…)
