Blogs are difficult to make shoppable, due to the need for investment and a great set of developers! But Endource are taking that hassle away and helping bring e-commerce to styleisle. How…

OOTD in Boston (Part One!)

OOTD in Boston (Part One!)

I have just returned from a long weekend in Boston where I was working on a really fun OOTD project with Primark (more of that later in the week) and honestly, it was one of the best trips I’ve ever had. The weather was perfectly Spring-like with bright blue skies punctuated by the high rise buildings across the city skyline, and a light breeze in the air. Perfect for combatting jet lag. Unlike now, where I am battling the need…

OOTD London Fashion Week Day one

OOTD London Fashion Week Day one

London Fashion week loads on the pressure when it comes to dressing, and I don’t mean the models, I mean me. You want to do some street style snapping, get some great images for your blog, but deal with rain, public transport, getting lost in a big city, and making it to every show on your schedule without missing it. I decided this season, I was going to dress as me. Not change to get attention from street style snappers,…

Preparing for London Fashion Week!

It’s that time of the year again. New York is well underway, and on Friday 20th February all eyes turn to London. I love London Fashion Week; it’s exciting off the catwalk as well as on.

Thanks to the medium of technology, it’s not just limited to press anymore. Everyone can see shows…
