T-Shirt and Tails Hearts: Show Me Your Wardrobe

I am currently addicted to stylist and ex-Elle fashion editor Jackie Dixon's blog, 'Show Me Your Wardrobe'. It is a fantastic blog which offers a sneak preview into the unique and creative wardrobes of stylists, photographers, writer, actresses, make-up atrists, models and designers alike. If you need inspiration for an outfit or a wardrobe overhaul make Show Me Your Wardrobe your first point on call. See Topshop's senior buyer Rachel Proud below:

Graduate Exhibitions

It’s that time of year again when fresh graduate talent exhibit their final projects to the world. These shows are fantastic for spotting new talent and are definitely worth a visit.


The London College of Fashion BA Catwalk Show is a must-see for scouting exciting new trends and designers in the fashion world; the Catwalk Show is being held on the Thursday 4 June. Here are some of my favourites below:


Lova Pye Moller - BA (Hons) Fashion Design Technology: Womenswear


Claire Louise Obee - BA (Hons) Fashion: Design Technology


One name which is sure to be huge in the make-up artistry world is Rhea Le Riche who has graduated from the London College of Fashion with a BA in Specialist Make Up Design. Check out some shots from her portfolio below:


The prestigious Cordwainers College who brought you the likes of Jimmy Choo, Patrick Cox and Linda (LK) Bennett, begin their graduate exhibition next week until 9 June. You can view the work of the shoe and leather accessories graduates at the Pop Up Gallery on 65 - 67 Broadwick Street, perhaps you will spot the next Jimmy Choo…


Art graduates on the country’s leading art courses have come together to exhibit at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane from the 29 May – 20 July. Each week a different group of graduates will showcase their work.



This is a great opportunity to discover new names and hunt for compositions to line the walls of your house, many graduates will give visitors the opportunity to purchase their work. For further information please here.

Kate Moss' Teen Rebellion

Kate Moss is renowned for her inspirational casual-chic style which is imitated and embraced by followers, designers, magazines and celebrities alike. However, I am struggling with her latest grungy acquisition of several hoops in the right ear.



I love Kate’s style and normally find her choices faultless however try as I may I simply cannot embrace her six new ear piercings! It feels a little too much like a teen rebellion, particularly as all were done in one go.

Kate is applauded for the simplicity and ease of her style and I think she ought to stick to what she does so well.

Going Floral at Chelsea

Dust off your floral prints and panama hats as the British summer season has officially begun with the quintessentially English Chelsea Flower Show this week.



The gardens were masterpieces of design and my particular favourite was the Laurent-Perrier garden (below) for its minimalist, clean lines and stunning avenue of yew and hornbeam trees. The garden explores the relationship between architecture and nature and was designed by first-time Chelsea designer Luciano Guibbilei. Best in show went to the contemporary Daily Telegraph garden (second below), by Swedish designer Ulf Nordfjell, with a beautiful courtyard mixture of wild flowers and grasses, and the People’s Choice Award went to Chelsea veteran Robert Myers for his ornamental Cancer Research garden (third below). Also James May's (yes, the one from Top Gear!) unconventional plasticine garden was a huge hit with all (fourth and fifth below).





The show was also extremely popular with celebrities and behind every hedgerow and flowerbed was another A-lister, from Stephen Fry (my personal favourite – sporting such a beautifully cut suit!) to Joanna Lumley, and Sienna Miller to VV Brown (who has inspired me to order her floral number below from Asos.com) and many more. Sienna Miller, who worked the casual-chic look to perfection with flat boots and an oversized handbag, was overheard saying that she’s love a rose to be named after her, maybe next year…







The show was lovely day out and it has inspired me to get growing, in a window box at least, I’d definitely recommend it!
