Celine. Crisp. Closet.

A quick outfit snap. 
Evidently I was feeling clean lines and contrasting patterns when pulling this outfit. The crisper the mornings, the more tweed and waffle effect ensembles creep out of my closet.

ASOS Internship Competition

So the last fortnight has been pretty hectic to say the least! The October issue of Company Magazine, that I guest-edited hit the shelves. I was also approached by Grazia Magazine to become a regional ambassador for the publication, #StreetFashionWeek being the first exciting project!  

Then, this happened..

I entered, and won!

After meeting with the lovely ladies at Asos, they offered me the internship. The last few days have consisted of me jacking in my part time job.. franticly searching for a London living space.. and getting excited to spend my birthday and the Christmas build up in the capitol!! 

My fellow interns out there will also understand how ridiculously exciting it is to actually be payed to intern! Hoorah! 

Stay tuned for updates on my navigation of this world we call fashion.

YSL Closet Find

Ever get that urge at 10pm to clear out your closet?.. and when you do, you find a stash of hidden gems that you had forgotten about smouldering in boxes or between sheaths of tissue paper.. then spend the rest of the night trying them on and creating whole new outfits with the introduction of those very pieces? 

So just me then. 

[Instagram filters making my chocolate locks look red!]

Say hello to my little friends. These bad boys will be making an appearance in an up and coming outfit post for sure. They give me the urge to dress like Hillary Banks. Anyone else getting that vibe?

BREAKING NEWS! Grazia Street Fashion Week

So, being members of the blogosphere an' all.. We're all well versed in the importance of street style. Wether it's a quick Instagram snap in the bedroom mirror, or Fashion Week style clustertography [see ADR above] ..and yes, I did just make that up. Street fashion has become the crux of the industry, and lies between the foundations of a designer's scrapbook.. slowly but surely materialising into the the lust-worthy creations we see stomping down the runway, plastered across our fave mags (oh hey Grazia) and ultimately in the stores we save our pennies to shop in. 

Full circle. Funny, huh?

This takes me to SFW. A week you NEED to pen into your diaries. Fancy yourself as Cardiff's very own Olivia Palermo? Or maybe Caroline Sieber? Grazia is giving you the chance to have your own piece of the sidewalk catwalk. 

The week of Saturday 22nd to Friday 28th of September will see 7 fashion bloggers (including me in Cardiff) invade their home city to find the best of the best of the sartorially blessed. 

Each day, the pictures taken will be uploaded live to with the opportunity for you to upload pictures of yourself in your strongest look from the 22nd September. Those voted the most stylish 5 will win a £250 Warehouse voucher!

Don't forget to vote for your favourite city from October 1st... with 5 £50 Warehouse vouchers up for grabs for those who vote!! 

As I said, I will be scouting the streets of Cardiff for the chic, the styled, the creative and the "pahh.. oh, this old thing"'s.

Start point : Warehouse, St David's 2 which will also house the in-store hair makeover experience by Toni & Guy -open to everyone! 

The SFW Time Table :

Saturday 22nd: Liverpool 
Sunday 23rd: Birmingham 
Monday 24th: London 
Tuesday 25th: Cardiff 
Wednesday 26th: Manchester 
Thursday 27th: Leeds 
Friday 28th: Edinburgh 

Get involved and spread the word using the Twitter hashtag #streetfashionweek

       I'm planning to mark Cardiff's rightful place firmly on the fashion map. 
Who's with me?
