Carven Craving

by laurenlux

Summer in London is at it’s finest (literally 28 degrees every day) and to celebrate, I purchased these colourful/crazy Carven wedge-forms and they were 70% off from Matches – steal! What more could a girl ask for? My trip to Southeast Asia was incredible and ever since I’ve had the travel bug – so I’m off to Croatia Wednesday for Soundwave music festival. I’ve got lots of beautiful SE Asia pictures to post so stay tuned! I would also highly recommend checking out Matches sale, Net-A-Porter sale, and The Outnet because there are still some amazing deals on. Spotted some denim skirts, Opening Ceremony sandals, and Mary K/Current Elliot pieces for 70% off!

Manic

by laurenlux

…is the most fitting word I could think of for this post. Work has been mental — in a good way though. Got a Selfridges event tomorrow that I am helping to run (mad hatters tea event at the Sanderson hotel!), fashion dinner next week (where we’ll talk about digital insights in the luxury fashion industry), and starting with Jamie Oliver and Sweaty Betty as new clients next month which is A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I am actually in love with Sweaty Betty’s workout gear. I’m not gonna lie, being Canadian and all has sort of made me biased towards lululemon but after attending Sweaty Betty’s press day yesterday I fell in love. They really embrace fashion in workout/dance/yoga gear. I’m eyeing a layered crop tank at the minute and their dip dye (obviously) capri leggings which are already sold out online. Bummer.

On another note, I am really embracing this sunny weatha. I thought I would take a few outfit pics while it lasts, which, in London usually isn’t for very long. These were taken on the weekend around Portobello road and in Chelsea after brunch at Bluebird cafe. I do love a good brunch.

One of a Kind

by laurenlux

I was reading away on some blogs and discovered a really cool vintage store in London called One of a Kind! At this point I am itching to get back into my adventures there. There are just so many wonderful opportunities  in that city, and being away from it for a couple weeks has made me realize just how much how I love it. Check out the website for One of a Kind.. they have online shopping too! http://www.1kind.co.uk/

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 Рwhich is one of my favorite brands sold at Topshop; rather expensive but very edgy and cool. Check out their stuff on http://www.religionclothing.co.uk/. Here are some streetstyle pics from this week:

Weekend update

by laurenlux

A day in the east.

Hey guys! Thought I would update you on how the weekend has been. So far, 3 words can sum it up: party, work, and shopping. Friday night my friend from Paris got in and I have to admit reuniting with her was such a great feeling. We ended up going for drinks with some people in Shoreditch at two places, one called Kalu Kaley which was basically an underground cocktail bar where the couches were made of bathtubs cut in half. The cocktails were very unique, and there were so many to choose from! Even their names were something you wouldn’t find at any regular bar… like Fizz Fizz Bang Bang, All that Jazz, Thunderbolt Peach, etc. Next, we went to this place called the Hoxton Pony, which was more of a hipster club scene but also very fun. We had a post dance party at my friends flat which I think was the best part of the night. Can never have enough dance parties!

Yesterday I worked for most of the day because we had a bunch of invites to get ready for the shows next weekend. We did the invites for Jonathan Saunders and Marios Schwab. Working on a Saturday isn’t something I would normally have to do, but there is so much preparation that goes into fashion week, so it was necessary. I still managed to get Jordy to some shops around Regent Street in between making the invites so it ended up being a productive day!

Last night was my friend Scott’s birthday party and we drank at his place (starting at 8pm.. sooo early!) and then went to Proud in Camden where we had a booth/stable reserved for us. What an amazing night! What I loved most about this place was that it used to be a stable, so all of the booths were themed differently and still had the horses names. I horseback ride myself, so I loved this. Our stable was named Sea Biscuit.

Today we are going to spend a day in the east (central-east) in some of the markets I have been raving about. We are also going to try going to a new area in Islington called Camden Passage.
