Buy it now: Bourgeois tomboy

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Saint Laurent

A lovely new hybrid for me to geek over. Bourgeois tomboy (as demonstrated in the above ad by Saint Laurent) is a mix of three parts tomboy (precision tailoring, something denim, scruffy hair), with two parts old school poshness (bourgeois bag, bow-neck blouse). A good enough reason to stock up on lady bags, schoolboy blazers and vintage Cartier jewels I feel…

Tested: My-wardrobe’s ‘try-before-you-buy’ my-dressing room service

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

My-wardrobe-my-Dressing-Room 1

As the multi-brand etail market continues to evolve, the originators have their work cut out. How to keep attracting new customers in the face of increased competition? How to tackle the issues of fit and returns? How to differentiate from all the copycats out there? And how to deliver an outstanding service to keep customers coming back?

My-wardrobe.com has a new service that aims to tackle some of these concerns and I was asked to try it out.* Continue reading

River Island’s blogger-led denim campaign

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Chiara-Ferragni-River-Island

River Island loves bloggers so it’s tapped some of its favourites to model its latest denim. Why this works? Because these super-bloggers will naturally share the shots on their own multi channel platforms, thus spreading the message far and wide. (It’s an international affair – amongst the bloggers are Italian Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad, Australian Jessica Stein of Tuula Vintage and Spanish Gala Gonzalez from Amlul).

FIRST LOOK AT TOM FORD’S FACE PALETTE

Tom Ford face palette

Last week I met with the PR for Tom Ford Beauty, where she arranged all the latest spring lip and nail colours before me. Most exciting was a first look at the new (and first ever) Tom Ford face palette (above) due in April. Even the MD of the store we were in snuck over from his meeting at the next table to get a peek. In the pics below you can also just see the Lip and Cheek Shimmers (bottom right) which also land on counter in April. Continue reading

TORY BURCH BEAUTY IS HERE
Tory-Burch-LiptickTory-Burch-Blusher-bronzer
Tory Burch Beauty has now arrived (at Harrods and Toryburch.co.uk) and it’s a nicely considered offer. Packaging-wise, the gold-on-orange fretwork is gorgeous, although you’ll be slightly disappointed if expecting something weighty as it’s not metal. On the upside, that makes it lighter and easily portable. The products themselves are similar to Aerin in terms of wearability. Continue reading

By accident or clever engineering, Lego’s latest offering is right in tune with fashion right now. Its line of adult watches marry poppy primary colours with playful graphics, plus the current obsession with all things customisable and hackable.

Head to the Lego Watch website and you can choose from a number of different styles with customisable straps and bezels. The links of the watches click in and out of place and can be changed to different colours, while silicone straps can also be added. Continue reading
