Back in London after a short recharge of batteries last week and already I’m prowling around some of my favourite haunts. Mount Street in Mayfair is one of my favourite neighbourhoods, even though I’m from the other side of town, it welcomes you in and keeps you there until the late, great hours. Much like the new kid on the block, Bally to new Bond Street, being welcomed in by fellow neighbours as part of the #BallyMayfairWelcome series – I love it when businesses support each other. You can watch the series of short films welcoming Bally to the neighbourhood here as well as catching up with the campaign on their very chic blog.
As for me, I’m back to full-time living in chunky knitwear, this grey dream is from Bally and needs to stay on my body forever please. Paired with a beige oversized cashmere trench from Joseph and the perfect point winter boot from Cara.

No, it’s not a dream, you are visually laying your eyes upon the new flagship from the Row; as discovered through my girl Andy Heart via WWD. When I posted this last week there was some speculation if this was even real, the space looks so other-wordly to us we can’t even imagine. The space is reported to have been both Mark Kate and Ashley’s hairdressers before it became available. I dream about when I open my first store but I can’t imagine it ever having an open roof pool feature – only in LA! Which reminds me is on my list of top visits this year..

The new website is officially live! I’ve been threatening to do a huge giveaway for a while now, so here it is. I know it won’t disappoint! I’m so excited to have teamed up with hair giants, Bumble and bumble, to offer some pretty uhhmazing stuff. I always use their products for my shows and editorial shoots, so it made total sense to team up with them for my first giveaway for the new site, and with items I use on a daily basis.
There are two sets of prizes, first is the Charlie May ostrich leather tee with Bumble and bumble quenching shampoo and conditioner, thickening creme and surf spray (This is available worldwide!). And, the second is two tickets to see our catwalk show at London Fashion Week, 15th September! As well as Bumble and bumble Mending shampoo and conditioner, surf spray and texture creme (this is available to UK residents only who are in London for fashion week.) Unfortunately I cannot provide travel!
All you have to do is sign up to our newsletter and follow Girl a la Mode on BlogLovin’. Just leave a comment below to say which prizes you’re going for (you can vote for both!) Competition will close on Wednesday morning, along with the free worldwide shipping for the new site. I wish you all good luck!
