Quote of the day: Stephen Schaffer, Fiorucci



Fiorucci Brewer Street W1

Fiorucci is optimistic and fun. It was never just a fashion or luxury brand. It appealed to everyone. You could walk in and buy something, whether it was jeans or a postcard. It’s 50 years old, but people remember the experience more than anything else.”
Stephen Schaffer, new co-owner of Fiorucci, Business of Fashion.

I’m loving this revival. I went into the new store after a show during LFW and it wasn’t full of over 40s as I had feared. Yay, young people get it too! The store has captured the experiential spirit of the original Fiorucci, the product is great and I really want the Fiorucci book

Come to my Grenson London meet-up



DisneyRollerGirl X Grenson

This Wednesday, I’m hosting a jolly get-together at Grenson’s lovely Soho store in London. It’s all an excuse to step away from the social media screen and meet IRL, just like our old blogger meet-ups back in the day. As much as I love making connections online, it’s good to meet face to face, and I particularly want to get to know some of the people I’ve been talking to on social media for the past couple of years.

That includes readers who have discovered the blog via my book, The New Garconne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman, so if that’s you, please come down and say hello! And if you don’t have a copy of the book, I’ll also be signing a few on the night (hey, Christmas is coming)…

It should be a fun evening, with drinks and nibbles and a cheeky 20% discount on Grenson’s excellent women’s collection. Don’t forget to RSVP (to press@grenson.co.uk, subject: Disneyrollergirl) and I can’t wait to see you there.

Read this: Know your style by Alyson Walsh



Know Your Style Alyson Walsh

If you know Alyson Walsh and her blog That’s Not My Age, you may know her book, Style Forever which came out in 2015. A statement on why style doesn’t disappear when you’re over 40, it’s been a hit with women of all ages, dispensing no-bullshit advice from Alyson and her coterie of global tastemakers. And happily, she’s about to release book number two. Know Your Style is released tomorrow, with even more observations on cultivating individual style, this time without the age focus. (more…)



Shinola X Disneyrollergirl



Shinola Fouberts Place

We had all of the fun at Shinola last week, where Disneyrollergirl friends and followers gathered at the Foubert’s Place store to see the AW17 collection and grab a signed copy of The New Garconne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman.

Shinola was the perfect partner for The New Garconne. (more…)
