It has been a manic few weeks here at the South Molton St Style camp. Lopez and I have both had frantic schedules with a few exciting projects (will post them when they come up) and we've barely had time to chill out at home. Mixed with the appalling weather we've been having in London, outfit posts really haven't been happening at all. So, last weekend when we had 5 dry minutes in the garden I popped out to snap some of my newest clothes.
Say hello to my foxy little find from Hobbs. I've been after a jumper with a fox on ever since the Mulberry AW12 show in February. I spotted this one in Tatler and knew it had to be mine. It is unbelievably comfortable and soft and has a lovely gentle pattern - quite tame compared to some of the others I've seen on the high street. For £89 it's an absolute bargain.
My boots were bought in the sale last winter, I wore them to brunch with the blogger girls the other week, there is a better/closer picture of them here. They have them at Bicester at the moment, and have a similar style in their AW12 collection in petrol blue here.
However the real hero in the outfit are my new jeans. I'm a stickler for a good pair of denims, and when a friend recommended AG Jeans by a colleague I knew they had to be mine (as she looks blo**dy amazing in hers). As if the Gods were listening, I got an email from their lovely team on the same day. Weird huh? Or fate. I picked out the Low Rise Legging Jean in black. These photo do not do them justice, they are like silk on my skin.
Hopefully you can see a big difference in my hair (have a look here at my mop a few weeks ago). It was verging on a crisis situation - my ends were completely split and no matter what I did it to it end up looking yellow rather than blonde. It needed a drastic overhaul, and thats exactly what I got. The lovely team at the Sassoon salon on South Molton Street took me under their wing and sorted me and my mess of a hair do out.
I wasn't just a haircut, it was an inspiration. The team spent ages going through my hair type with me and why certain colours work in my hair and some don't. After some persuasion I had 4 inches cut off and a new dead straight parting.
I left with some amazing new shampoos and conditioners, and two weeks later my hair has never, ever felt better. I will never be buying the cheapest shampoos on offer again, there really is value in buying more expensive premium products. I am using Sassoon's Rich Clean shampoo and Advanced Condition conditioner. I genuinely recommend you to too, particularly if you have long hair like mine... Keep an eye out on the blog for a very exciting competition with the Sassoon team...
