I love clothes that make you smile. We wear clothes for practicality but really we wear clothes because they make us feel good. Whenever I look at Holly Fulton’s dresses I just smile. Holly Fulton Autumn Winter 2013 collection is very easy to wear and I love the lipstick prints!

While in Bath I went to Debenhams to look at H! by Henry Holland while preparing for the Bath In Fashion catwalk show. There are very few London Fashion Week designers that are aimed at the young fashion market, but H! by Henry Holland is: a dress costs about £40 and jeans are £28 so it’s all reasonably priced and very cute!
Things you probably didn’t know about Debenhams in Bath – there is O2 WiFi throughout the store and you can download the Debenhams app and use the barcode scanner for price checking, to see availability of sizes, view customer reviews and order products straight from your phone. There are a few reasosn one might want to do this – maybe your size isn’t available in the store or you’d rather just have everything delivered to your home or office.

I’ve been inspired by the warmer weather to start wearing some colour. I feel like I need a bit of colour just to feel like spring is really here! Also after styling Bath in Fashion – for two shows we had almost 400 looks – and so many beautiful florals and lovely bright spring colours.
This is my favourite coat at the moment. It’s a 70’s leather coat that I bought for £5 in a sale at Rokit, on Bricklane. It might be one of my best purchases for cost per wear. I was recently given this lovely blush metallic bag from Peony & Moore. It could be used as an evening bag but since I spend most of my time carrying a large handbag with my laptop and magazines in it I like this bag because it forces to me travel light during the day. My leggings and top are from the amazing & talented Hermione de Paula.

One of my favourite activities at Bath in Fashion is attending the fashion talks and book signings. They’re very intimate and quite personal. Last year I went to see Manolo Blahnik interviewed by Iain R Webb (this picture is from the book signing) and Stephen Jones interviewed by Sarah Mower. Stephen Jones had also curated an exclusive exhibition at the Holburne Museum. Bath in Fashion offers some amazing world class events that would rival any fashion capital. This year there are quite a few fashion talks
- Looking at the Wardrobe of the King of Pop – a talk by Michael Bush, the genius behind the Michael Jackson’s costumes
- The Jacobean Catwalks: Fashion and Faces at the Court of King James – Sir Roy Strong, former Director of the V&A and the National Portrait Gallery, discusses the complexity portrayed in the special exhibition at the Holburne of portraits of court costume
- Beautiful Freaks: From Blitz Kids to BLITZ magazine – Bath based fashion author, Iain R Webb, discusses his latest book, “As Seen in Blitz” which chronicles the 80s fashion scene
- Talks at Topping & Company book store with Kaffe Fasset,
- Sasha Wilkins of LibertyLondonGirl will be discussing numerous fashion-related topics
Lunches with Amanda Mackenzie Stuart to launch her book “Diana Vreeland Empress of Fashion” and Chloe Fox discussing “Vogue On…Alexander McQueen"

If you’ve been inspired by glam rock lately with the David Bowie exibition at the V&A, you’ll love Charles of London. This week they have a pop up shop in East London at 54 Rivington Street and I just happened to pass by while I was prepping for a shoot. Designers Mark Charles and Susan Diamond were still setting up the shop. They weren’t quite open (they’re open Fri Mar 29 – Wed Apr 3, 11am-7pm) but they let me come in and have a sneaky peek. I love an explosion of print and colour – it just makes me happy. It’s all glam rock and punk with high collared jackets, shorts biker jackets and leggings. Charles of London is all made in UK.
Pop up Shop Friday – Wednesday 11-7pm, 54 Rivington Street London,EC2 A3Q
