Dress for Fall

Dress for Fall

It’s about that time where this might be my final opportunity to get my legs out in London. The weather has transitioned into full on Fall and I know we’re all trained to automatically complain, but I actually love London at this time. I feel like the city is at its best. Plus who doesn’t love fashion in Autumn? It’s been at least over six weeks since I did any really training and I could do with a layer or two of knitwear to hide the evidence.

But before we get too ahead of ourselves, the weather is still forgiving enough for my latest style edit with Harvey Nichols and in light of that, I centered this Peter Pilotto piece of goodness (if ever there was a dress to convert me from jeans), around a leather jacket from last season’s Zadig & Voltaire collection.

If you’re anything like me, you usually opt to only wear dresses as and when they are required but I’m slowly trying to make them a strong contender in my sartorial decision making, and there’s nothing like a feminine silhouette and healthy dose of digital print to ease you into it.

Magic Wire

Magic Wire

Just a quick one for all our fellow busty ladies out there, we don’t know about you but for us, home is usually where the bra isn’t. It’s got to be one of the most uncomfortable feelings when the wire from your bra is just relentlessly digging into you. There are no words for how much I envy small boobies that fit into teeny tiny triangle bras that are just there for fun.

As much as Reem and I may conceal them, we have DD+ breasts and sometimes it’s hard to find not just a comfortable bra but a good looking one at that. Cue the new creation by Triumph. It’s their latest Magic Wire which is built to give support and freedom by using a silicone integrated wire instead of a traditional one, so by the end of the day you don’t dramatically feel the need to strip down, throw off your bra and sigh a huge relief of satisfaction, (of course if you’re into that kind of drama, you can still totally do that).

Centred around those everyday little annoyances, Triumph have created a light-hearted campaign called #NiggleFix where we all basically get a free pass at moaning about something that gets on our nerves. As part of our collaboration with the brand, when you join in on the conversation with us via Twitter and share your niggle by using the hashtag #NiggleFix, you could be in with a chance of winning something fabulous. Just remember to tag @TriumphUK. Also, to find out more about the Magic Wire campaign and how Triumph are looking to help some of women’s everyday niggles just click here.

Tropic Thunder

Tropic Thunder

Take me back to MIA! I have honestly fallen in love with South Beach and have been trying to find reasons “why we have to move to Miami” ever since coming back. I was staying at the Loews on my recent trip, and waking up every morning (thanks to jet lag) at 6am with enough time to catch the epic sunrise over the ocean was just what I needed to recoup some peace of mind. In my last post I featured everything I did in those five days from Shopping, to touring the everglades and tasting some of the best that Cuban cuisine offers, so here’s a little of what I wore.

On my last day, I met up with the super talented photographer Shane and we shot our way from the beach to Ocean Drive, sparing just enough time before the tropical rain graced us with it’s presence, but when a storm looks this pretty, who’s going to mind?
