Hmmm couldn’t think of a blog post name this morning so I went with posties… I tend to add ies to the end of a lot of things I say (samesies, tubesies, sleepsies.. the list goes on). This week has been pretty busy since press day is coming up next week. Press day is when all of the publications/press (e.g. Harper’s Bazaar) come in to see the new Autumn/Winter collection that showed on the runway. There will be many sample requests on press day so I presume we will all be very busy. Wish us luck! Here are some streetstyle pics from this weekend:

On a Mission

by laurenlux

Katy B – On a mission…. name of my favorite song of the week. I highly suggest downloading this if you are at all into house/dance/electronic music. Also recently discovered Annie Mac – who has great hour long mixes on BBC Radio 1.. check it out! I’ve been running to these and they definitely get me in the zone.

District Line to… Middle of Nowhere!

by laurenlux

Another fun filled weekend. Friday went to this amazing Vietnamese restaurant in Shoreditch called Viet Grill. Ended up hitting some bars on Kingsland Road – Jaguar Shoes and Catch.. both pretty trendy places! Saturday we went to Broadway market and ate lots of yummy food. Follow that we dressed up as nautical prepsters and hit the boat race! It was actually a wild event – tons of young people everywhere drinking, cheering, and getting pumped up for the boat race. It was Oxford vs. Cambridge and Oxford won — we were a bit sad because we were cheering for Cambridge but still a fun time all around. The race itself was all of 10 minutes but the build up was what made it so exciting. After that we went to an amazing restaurant called Franco Manco which supposedly serves the best pizza in all of London! Trekking to the other side of the city sure was worth it. I think it took us about 1.5 hours to get there from where we were. Got my fix of streetstyle pics at those places plus of course Brick Lane, which is getting even better now that Spring is here…

Fridays make us crazy!

by laurenlux

Only word to describe this picture is spontaneous… on our little Starbucks break we decided to pop into A&F to get a free pic with this random Abercrombie employee. Our dear friend Bita is actually leaving Starworks today and moving back to California, so it makes for a great memory!

The Perfect 5

by laurenlux

According to Nicholas Kirkwood, my friend and fellow intern Jasmine has the perfect size 5 feet. Last season Nicholas Kirkwood asked Jasmine to model her perfect feet in all of their size 5 shoes. She actually went to Italy (Milan and Bolognia) to try on shoes in their production house. Apparently the ideal size 5 foot is quite thin, so we always ask her if she diets her feet (running joke in the office).

So the weather these past couple days has been beautiful, and to embrace that we went to Berkeley Square Park to sit on a bench and enjoy the sun. Work isn’t as busy this week, but press day is coming up soon which will be madness — fun madness! Sometimes chaos is nice my friends.

The Latest

by laurenlux

Busy weekend my friends! Went to some pubs in Angel on Friday, enjoyed the beautiful weather on Saturday by walking around my area only to discover a vintage market I had not seen before. Not that I need any more shoes, but purchased an irresistible pair of vintage brown leather booties (see below) for a very reasonable price. That night we revisited our favorite club in Camden Town, Proud. Always a good time at Proud despite the large line. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day once again and to embrace it some friends and I wondered through Brick Lane and discovered some nice boutiquey shops. I also discovered the Religion store – which is one of my favorite brands sold at Topshop; rather expensive but very edgy and cool. Check out their stuff on Here are some streetstyle pics from this week:

Happy Friday!

by laurenlux

Beyond happy that it is Friday. This week has been slower than usual for some reason. Last night at work we had personal orders evening. Basically this event involves people coming to our office to preorder the AW11 clothing at wholesale price. These are the looks that were shown on the catwalk during LFW last month. The clothes are all beautiful, but everything is still very expensive so I didn’t buy anything. In preparation for this, I was required to label all of the new looks from my clients and ensure that they were perfectly matched to the look in the lookbook.

Sorting out the looks according to style #
