Fashion related (and totally non-fashion related) things that have made my world go round over the last seven days…
This documentary follows Carine Roitfeld on her journey from editor of French Vogue to founder, editor and stylist on her own magazine, CR Fashion. I was expecting a slightly frosty Roitfeld, à la Anna Wintour in The September Issue, but Carine was passionate and extremely maternal, gushing with pride over her pregnant daughter, Julia. I couldn’t find a cinema showing this in Bristol when it came out in September, but it’s now on LoveFilm Instant so if you like a little fashion with your documentaries, I recommend it.
On Tuesday night I popped along to Bristol’s Greenhouse for the South West Bloggers Network Christmas Quiz. Teaming up with Jo & Victoria, Lily and Josie, we tackled questions about Christmas, music and the fine city of Bristol, and we only chuffing won! It was lovely to catch up with everyone, not to mention share a cheeky bottle of celebratory wine, too.
Coexist Fashion Show
On Thursday I had the pleasure of attending the Coexist fashion show at Hamilton House, courtesy of Banker and Benefit. I’ll write more about the show when I’ve had a chance to edit my photos, but it was a great opportunity to see the work of local designers and crafters, plus support such a brilliant city arts space.
This week I’ve been…
Blogging about: Playing with proportions is an outfit post featuring Zara, Topshop and my rarely seen waistline. The local fashion design competition launched by Heartfelt Bristol – it’s got me wanting to dust off my old sketchbooks and start drawing again!
Listening to: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis playlists on repeat – I can’t get enough of their track Same Love, featuring Mary Lambert.
Reading: I have a stack of magazines that are sat in my reading pile including Company, InStyle, Elle and Glamour that’ve barely made a dent in.
