Burberry Winter Glow Collection

Dear Santa, please can I have my entire tree decked in these sumptuous gold Burberry Beauty packages?

Burberry is banking on beauty, there’s really no doubt about it. And the product is good from what I’ve tried, I’m using the Burberry foundation as my everyday base, after eking out the last blob of Myface MyMix.

So for Christmas, Burberry is gifting us this limited edition array of goodies, in special gold packaging that’s very different from Burberry’s usual neutral colour palette. The boxes alone are beautifully presented – a warm gold, minimal typography, and extremely sophisticated. Continue reading

Don’t miss: 89:14 – A Street Style exhibition

A Street style exhibition

Another date for the diary. This is only on for three days and it starts this Friday.

89:14 – A Street Style Journey is a look at the last 25 years of street style trends, featuring exhibits from fashion and music influencers (including a fair few friends of DRG). Also included are some of the images from Nina Manandhar’s brilliant What We Wore book, plus a live street style ‘map’ to which punters are encouraged to add their own ephemera, photos and stories. Until the days of Tommy Ton and The Sartorialist, ‘street style’ actually meant something completely different. Less high fashion peacocking and more youth culture fashion tribes. Continue reading

Paul Smith – the Instagram tour

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Last Monday I was invited to a special breakfast at Paul Smith’s Covent Garden HQ at the painful hour of 7am. I might have attempted it but I had to be at the WIRED Retail conference on the other side of town that morning. *WEEPS AND WAILS* But here’s why it was special. Following breakfast and a meet-n-greet, the invited attendees were led by Sir Paul himself on an #Instameet tour of Covent Garden, ending at the Paul Smith store in Floral Street. Continue reading

WIRED-Retail-Amber-Venz-Rewardstyle-Like-To-Know-It

This year’s WIRED Retail (supported by digital marketing agency Valtech) was a winning combination of all my favourite elements – fashion, retail, social and curation. We’ve been talking about these subjects a hell of a lot lately but certain messages are being crystalised. Among last Monday’s speakers were the founders of Lyst, Farfetch and RewardStyle, as well as Google UK’s Peter Fitzgerald, Etsy’s VP of business development Nicole Vanderbilt, Instagram’s Tracy Yaverbaun and Depop’s CEO, Runar Reistrup.

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: TIFFANY T, FINERY LONDON, JOHNNY COCA FOR MULBERRY, MARC JACOBS X DAMIEN HIRST

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…

1) TIFFANY T PUSHES UP PROFITS

It’s not just me that’s crazy about Tiffany’s new ‘T’ line of minimalist T-motif jewellery. Created by design director Francesca Amfitheatrof, it has helped push up profits for the jeweller which reported a sales uptick of 5%. P.S, if you’re in the market for a new style crush, watch Amfitheatrof in the Google hangout above… Continue reading

Bobbi Brown’s best buys: the nude edit

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Bobbi Brown Deluxe Lip and Eye Palette

Naked and nude makeup palettes have undoubtedly been a thing this year. You can get them at all price points (just search them on British Beauty Blog, there’s a new one along every week) but for me, you can’t beat Bobbi Brown. The formulations are beautiful, the shades are supremely wearable and they work hard for day and night so that even the expensive ones earn their keep. Continue reading

Chanel No 5 for the bath, the body and the senses

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Chanel-no5-Loose-Powder

Ready for some OTT indulgence? If not now, then when? Chanel just keeps delivering with the brand extension pampering products – latest is this cache of Chanel No 5 goodies for ‘the bath, the body and the senses’. That translates to a loose body powder (£50), a body cream (£60) and even a bath soap (a virtually a steal at £22).

Personally I’m most seduced by the soap – who even uses bar soap any more? Continue reading
