Co-ord crazy

Apologies to all for the lack of posts right here on the official site. This month has been super busy and I can now unveil what I've been up to on my adventures, travels and fashion finds. 

I thoroughly enjoyed being back in my small, home town of Hythe on the South East Coast. Visiting little treasures such as Harvey the Lab, my girls and family! I thought too myself I must capture some home town experiences for Notes La Mode and was delighted to find out how photogenic Harvey was. 

 My post today wasn't intended too ramble, but simply share my OOTD (outfit of the day) for you all. This features a beautiful, detailed co-ord set from Angel Eye Fashion. After returning home from my travels, this was the first package to open. And I'm pretty sure I've over-worn them since. But that's a good thing right? 

More to come soon.

In love with Desire ft Miss Guided AW14 Preview

The Desire Hype

Copenhagen Fashion Week is rapidly approaching, it's next week and I am ever so excited. Press accredited is just so amazing, so I would love to thank again everyone who has encouraged me and supported me to get here. 

In the heat of the summery days we've had on the South East Coast, I always venture up to the capital. London Parks are so great for atmosphere and chilling, it's always lovely to be able to relax before the evening events or press days. Holland Park is one of favourite parks in London, so if you haven't been, it's worth the journey. The gardens are beautifully kept from Japanese styling with waterfalls, to Alice in Wonderland inspired giant chess board games in-between the greenery. If you use London tubes, I would recommend to hop off at Notting-hill Gate and it's a simple short walk to the park. For those thifters and vintage lovers, Portabello Road is not too far from the park. What I love about London is that everything is sign posted and map's are spread across the city for those thousands of explorers. 

 As featured in the imagery, my desire dress. I fell in love with my Desire Clothing white & pink dress which hugs my figure. The colourings of the dress complimented by natural tan which is another bonus to the item. It's 'that' dress every girl needs who did not bring a spare outfit for the evenings, practical, light and chic. For these days in Portabello Road, Nottinghill and Holland Park by day, and by night the Jazz bars. This was the ideal dress.

My OOTD: Burberry London Vintage tailored Co-ord. 

 (My key item of the evening^.)

Last night I was invited to view Miss Guided's AW14 (Autumn/Winter collection.)I was so delighted and brought my close friend from home who is Miss Guided crazy. What better way to be?! I showcased my most favourite vintage outfit of my wardrobe, my Burberry London two piece set, which I hope to feature soon. Not just the branding, but the shape of the tailoring suit, material and colour. Burberry know's how to create the perfect and most effortless tailoring. 

I am a huge pastel lover and was so delighted to see it creepy it's way into the next season, (as seen above in photos) Miss Guided have a whole collection of pastels to offer, from wool coats to co-ord sets! EP! Hurry September. 

Last night really made me appreciate our English seasons. I am so looking forward to Autumn and Winter. Just waiting to pop out the long jumpers and winter boots. This event really did make me excited for a being an ultimate lover of summer. The AW14 collection showcased a variety of styles which can suit all persons, my star piece which seemed to be a massive hit to all ladies at the event was the beige, baggy boyfriend coat. 

The shaping and colouring is divine. However being petite me, I decided it wouldn't be flattering to try on the showcase item as it would trial behind me. ( I am only 5'3.) Caping it probably wouldn't be the most glamorous look in front of the other bloggers, press and fashionsta's. Unless you're Kim Kardashian and can get away with anything. It was better to swoon  over my future coat and take a picture to share! 

Thank you again Miss Guided for a lovely pop in evening of Blueberry cider, music and sneak peaks into the new collections for 2014 Autumn and Winter.

Wanderlust season

'Wanderlust is a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world'

Location: South East Coast England
Photographer: Robyn Marks
This time of year, travelling is always the main thing on my mind. Twenty Fourteen has been wonderful so far with trips to Copenhagen, Wales, Greece and Italy so far. 
My most recent adventure led me to the party, summer sun destination of Malia Crete. As soon as I stepped back on home soil, I ventured to the beach. Immediate holiday blues!

The South East was incredible weather wise. 
As a result I was able to lounge around on the stones in my Urban Outfitters Crop top which fits perfectly and does not make you feel too over-exposed, this was paired with my Angel-eye Fashion maxi skirt. The grey patterns and wavy length of the skirt created bohemian tones which I love in the summertime heat. 

Where have you been travelling too?

take me anywhere

'Take me anywhere'

Location: Holland Park London
Photographer: Cansu O
Play-suit: Desire Clothing

Today was exceptionally hot for a normal summers day in London. After wandering, thifting and exploring, London parks are the best place to hang with pals and r-e-l-a-x. Having exposed myself to the sun all month with holidays and sunny Sundays, I thought a well needed cover up would be good. I selected my Desire Clothing play-suit, which covers shoulders, arms and all areas which may have been UV effected. 
By having the netting (as seen in photos) this still allowed me to breath in the summer heat, if buying summers outfits it's always handy to look out for items with this special feature. As is it more than likely you will be able to wear them through seasons. 
What I loved about the pastel pink play-suit is that you could style it in two ways, baggy or with a tightened waist. Being petite, tightened waists are always the more flattering option! However if you've got the height, you've got the option. 
I accessorised this item with a flower crown and my Office Uk shoes, to create more of the summers look, this also added vintage tones to the entire look and made this more personal to me. 

Hope you're all enjoying the sun!

It's that ancient love


Location: English Seaside town
Photographer: Robyn Marks
Co-ord set: Front Row Shop
All personal styling & MUA

Recently travelling has been on the agenda and this would explain the lack of posting, although I'm home for a few weeks and manage to catch up with Robyn. Robyn's exceptionally talented and was around our little seaside town after a whole year at King's Uni. I couldn't contain my excitement when she brought along her pa's old city bike. So we adventured around.

To all you locals, Hoo-raaaay for the weather! Arriving back from Malia Crete with the girls and returning back to the heat was so delightful. Particularly today was prime time for the heat, so I slipped into a co-ord set from the Front Row Shop, light, breezy and cotton. A perfect combination for busy scheduled day! 

I'm a sucker for comfort and I picked out this matching set due to the shape. Within summer months I prefer baggy clothing as it's easy to move in and light. Looking closer at the detailing of the shorts and top, the embroidery allows air into the clothing with beautiful holes lining and creating a gorgeous shape. Personally I adored this as it's a non-high-street shape at the moment! 

High five Front Row!
