SGH COVENT GARDEN LAUNCH

On Wednesday I was at the opening of the new Sunglass Hut flagship in Covent Garden. I had way too much fun; with sunglasses to drool over and mini ice creams to chew on the party was a night to remember. Bip Ling, Queens of Noize and The Voguettes DJ’d whilst guests tried out the pioneering new in-store software ‘social sun’ where you can upload pictures of yourself wearing your favourite shades and share them online. My favourite sunglasses had to be the new baroque Prada’s, so obsessed! 
Go to the new store in Covent Garden now to enjoy 25% off any second pair and follow them on twitter.
Thank you Phoebe for the amazing night!

PIGMENT

 Wearing: Ann Demeulemeester jacket, chiffon top and shoes, Haider Ackermann waistcoat and trousers, American Apparel clutch, minx nails.
The first waistcoat i’ve ever really owned, bought again from the Antwerp stocksales (am I boring you yet?). I’m trying to figure out how to wear it on it’s own, maybe I’m not used to it but it looks odd as a top layer. Of course it looks beautiful under this white Ann D jacket. Maybe I’m just too into layering and need to be more minimal. I’m obsessed with wide legged trousers at the moment too, and these Haider’s are the perfect size, colour and fabric.

EYESORE

Wearing: Jil Sander shirt, Yohji Yamamoto skirt, ACNE boots, American Apparel clutch
This new Jil Sander shirt is the most insane colour! It quite literally hurts my eyes to look at it. 
Worn to the private view of Pam Glew at Mauger Modern, definitely worth dropping in on if you are around east.

CAFE LUC

I couple of weeks ago I was invited to Cafe Luc, a stylish brasserie on Marylebone High Street serving exciting Belgian and French cuisine. We arrived for cocktails (some of them will blow your head off) and met the owners Julie and Laurent. It was amazing to see how much the restaurant reflected their characters, you instantly feel at home as if you were surrounded by your own family.
The decor was another beauty to marvel at, Julie designed every last piece of Cafe Luc, the most impressive being the glass jars that surround the bar, each hand blown by an artist in Battersea.
We all settled down at the table to begin our cuisine adventure. For starters I had their world famous Steak Tartare, the first time I’ve ever tried it and now I think i’m addicted! For mains I had the lamb – beautifully presented and melt in the mouth, and for pudding I had the most amazing salted caramel, vanilla and speculoos ice cream, followed by tea. Major food baby to follow all this.
It was wonderful to meet Marco, Will and Isabelle as well as seeing some familiar faces OsmanAlexEmily, Wayne and Alexxsia.
It was such a perfect evening, a huge thankyou to Julie and Laurent for having us and to Alix and Kat for organising the event.

BILLOWING

Wearing: Ann Demuelemeester jacket, Vero Moda leather jacket, T by Alexander Wang tank, Ann Demeulemeester draped fishtail skirt, ACNE boots, Mimco bag
 I’m constantly craving this long dramatic silhouette lately; with yet another purchase from the stock sales, this fishtail skirt is beyond amazing, catching the wind perfectly. Maria and I went for coffee in the amazing Leila’s on Calvert Avenue, Shoreditch. You feel like you’re in a giant kitchen, definitely worth going if you haven’t been before.
Thankyou to the amazing Maria McMenemy for taking these shots.
