Tranquillo

by laurenlux

 Tranquil.. as they describe in Italian meanspeacefully/calmy/to relax. That is what I am looking forward to this weekend (minus the partying) after this mental week at work. I went to this great bar the other night in Angel called Narrow Boat and enjoyed my first fish and chips in London! It was so tasty.. I think I’ll have to revisit the boat. My internship with Starworks is quickly coming to an end and I am feeling pretty bittersweet about this. On the plus side, it will be nice to have some time to myself… however I do get bored pretty easily. That being said, my sporadic travels will fill that void. This is actually the first job I have had where it is simply not possible to be bored for a single second. Fashion is MADNESS and I love it.. I never want to be bored again. Here are some streetstyle pictures my dear friends.. hope you enjoy! Also.. please do feel free to comment on any post.. Site stats can’t tell me who actually reads this blog and I would really love to know who my lovely supporters are : )

Music takes you higher

by laurenlux

This past week was more eventful than expected. After coming home from Lagos I was hoping to spend the week relaxing. That failed rather miserably.. but in a good way if that at all makes sense. I ended up attending a magazine launch party on Wednesday (Twin Magazine). Being given the opportunity to do these things is surely one of the benefits of working in the fashion indsutry. Following the launch party at The Russian Club we headed over to Shoreditch house with some friends. If any of you ever get a chance to go there PLEASE try the burratta cheese.. it is to die for. Friday we ended up at an underground house music party in east London (Dalston Superstore) which was a great night full of music and dancing. I recently downloaded the Hed Kandi Beach House CD which is pretty good if any of you are interested. Saturday night we went to a friend’s loft/patio party in Angel… complete contrast of music from the first night given that it was filled with 90’s R&B but still great. I suppose my taste in music is rather ecclectic, if you will. Today of course (along with all my other Sundays) I spent the day embedded in vintage clothing/markets… mmm what a nice weekend! Here are some outfits I have worn recently.. along with weekend pics:

Embracing summer.. jacket – hm, skirt – vintage, shoes – vintage

New in: vintage jean jacket!

Royal Wedding Madness

by laurenlux

Back in London and feeling great! Oh how I missed playing with clothes and shoes at work… and of course it feels wonderful to be reunited with my favorite Starworkers. I have to admit though that there has been NONSTOP talk about the royal wedding. In my industry at least the biggest question is what dress will she wear? Clearly Kate wants to keep it a secret… but many people say it could very well be McQueen. The moment we have been anxiously awaiting is in less than 12 hours and I will be sitting in hyde park watching it on the big screens! Supposedly 200, 000 people will be in hyde park and there will be a special ferris wheel set up just for the occasion. Apparently Kate and William will make an appearance on the balcony of the palace, so hopefully we will get to see that. Stay tuned for Royal Wedding pics!

Post work fun for Alexia’s last day : (

Turn of events

by laurenlux

Friday was madness! The entire office was basically turned inside out in preparation for press day. I got the guilty pleasure of entering some beautiful new Kate Spade bags into our system. I must say, Kate Spade is having quite the comeback with their bags. Leopard prints, mock croc, purple suede, and the softest leather were just some of the great qualities of these bags. Friday was also madness because I decided to make a trip to Toronto earlier than expected. I am now home, but dont you worry my friends, streetstyle and my style blog will continue. I promise not to let you down! I have had some requests to post about wardrobe essentials, so I will definitely work on that this week.

STARWORKS

Today was my first day at Starworks. The office is unbelieveable. The showroom filled with such beautiful clothing, shoes, and bags. I got to take a look at everything brand by brand (client by client) which was really cool. Some of the clients stuff I really loved, mainly Hudson, Pollini, Trilogy, Jonathan Saunders, and Marios Schwab. It was just very cool to see all of the samples hanging up throughout the office. The people at Starworks were very nice and welcoming and I am already learning about the exciting world of PR. I know that I have a long way to go, but today was very exciting for me. There are many interns working at Starworks right now since fashion week is coming up (Feb 18-23) which I am super pumped for. Starworks is doing 7 different fashion shows and I will be attending/working some of them. More to come! And as promised, pictures from the weekend and my outfit for my first day.

Me today.

Not really capable of looking at a camera so early in the morning so this was the best I could do. Decided to go with a simpler, more minimalistic outfit.

Visited Spitalfields Market once again and made friends with this lovely man who sold me a vintage army coat. Visit his website to take a look or order one: http://www.okmarc.com

Amazing new vintage market I discovered.
