It's hard to believe that in London, fashion 'press week' is still going on! It's lovely to be invited to events - they really are creatively, beautifully done and I appreciate the effort people go into making them a success. My challenge, tho, is that I have so many photos I want to show you and yet I don't want my blog to be a whole PR puff piece.. well you know what I'm talking about, especially if you, too, have a fashion blog. Am I the only one who can't wait for it to be Thursday- and Thanksgiving- so this can just stop? And then, the Christmas madness begin!
How do you work around it: the Press Day Posting issue? Do you alternate posts? I could use some suggestions. I mean, I feel manners are so important, and that it's rude not to post soon after visiting - but how long is too long? A week? Month? Year?
Is there a sell-by date for posting?
My heart still beats the most for one of my first events. It was the day of the Tube Strike - or one of the days but the crazy day. Shini and I were East, other friends were in the West End, no one could get where they were going.. it was like being snowed in. And we were in the BEST place: the huge, beautiful, warm, light open plan gorgeous showroom that is ROBINSON PFEFFER.
And to give you an idea how cool and nice and lovely and wonderful they are there, each time I apologise in an email for not posting yet, they just keep saying 'it's okay, really, don't stress about it, whenever..' I need to take a deep breath and start posting. It doesn't have to be perfect, doesn't have to be a theme... well this theme is just kind of round dots and beigey images. From top: me trying on the DRESS UP trench (available at LIBERTY LONDON), which was such a luxurious gorgeous perfect trench (I didn't realise, Shini was trying it on while I was talking to Pip I think). Then a men's shirt from The Stolen Girlfriends Club (more about them coming up), the rings that look like little old fashioned band aids - that's 'plasters' to you Brits - are by TOBY JONES, available online at OKI-NI.
And last but not least - never least - is Shini in a necklace by Mimi of Brook & Lyn: on the left is what she wore that day, on the right is a top by Obakki, at Austique. Hope I got it right but if in doubt just contact the lovely folk @ RP: they're amazing. And I have so so much more I want to show you. But at least it's a start.
