Be a Stripy, Nautical Sailor for Spring!

Earlier on the month I was blabbering on about nautical stripes and sailor-inspired outfits in Cosmpolitan, and now Cosmo Girl have got me all a-twitter with the feature below:

The stripy red socks and blue shoes combination is much too good, as is the D&G inspiration picture they've included.

There are some great nautical pieces in the Edith & Ella online store at the moment, too. I especially love these red and blue striped linen skirts, this red buttoned top.

Retro 1960s Mod Inspired Outfit

They were hip, they were cool, they were edgy... they were mods! Now they're kooky and retro, but we still love them anyway.

Most people just associate the Mod lifestyle with the clothes, and rightly so, because they were pretty clothes-obsessed. But Mods had an agenda too; they wanted to reject the bland, boring culture of the 1950s, and engage with things that were smarter and faster paced. Amphetamine abuse aside, that all sounds pretty good to me.

Get your own Mod look with this 60s-inspired sequin dress from the store. It's still on sale for €40 today, so grab it while you can, and get dancin'!

Cosmopolitan Loves Edith & Ella!

I get embarrassingly enthused whenever the words 'stripy' and 'nautical' are mentioned. Mostly because they're usually accompanied by red, white and navy colour combinations, much to my delight!

This month's Cosmopolitan gives a nod to Edith & Ella, along with a slew of other seaworthy delights, on the page above. (Click on the picture to enlarge it and get more details.)

London Fashion Week Inspiration - Luella Fall 2009

I've barely managed to think about Spring, and yet Autumn/Winter collections from London Fashion Week are popping up everywhere I turn. It's a bit mad, but who am I to turn down an opportunity to ogle beautiful clothes?

My favourite collection that I've come across so far is from Luella. A mix of kooky schoolgirl and military aesthetics might sound a little odd, but it's pulled off wonderfully.

If you want to recreate the feel of this show for yourself, you'll need to look out for items with texture, structure, and, most importantly, bad-ass-itude!
