A clutch of charming and colour-drenched fashion vids for your pleasure. Kalaidoscopic, shimmering patchworks from Leutton Postle Aw13, Mat Maitland’s illustrative, jungle-fest for Kenzo Resort 13 and Saga Sig’s mesmeric, pastel-hued dreamhouse for Fred Butler AW13
Check this out! I was really chuffed to be asked to be featured in the March issue of Elle Decoration (along with Shini and Fred) talking about design, blogging and homesy things. I nearly turned it down as I don’t really like having to
tidy up my crap pose for photos but … Elle Deco, people!!! And lovely Tara Darby did a great job with the pictures, while Talib Choudhry did well to to edit my ramblings into something coherent.

Considering fashion and style blogging has been around for well over five years (this blog started in 2007), it’s odd how few books there are on the subject.

Ordered chronologically, The Man Repeller, Vanessa Jackman, Style Rookie, Business Of Fashion and Advanced Style are included and (yay!) I get a good few pages too – thanks a million Susie!
Style Feed is available exclusively in-store at Urban Outfitters or online at Amazon and there’s a big old celebratory bash happening tomorrow at Urban Outfitters Spitalfields, which everyone’s invited to. One of the baddest-ass bloggers of them all, Fred Butler (also in the book obv) will be DJing. I might have to mug her for one of these.
