Swanky dinners in London’s trendy Hoxton aren’t something I go to everyday, so I jumped at the chance to join a host of fashion bloggers at the launch of boohoo’s gorgeous Boutique Collection. In a private room at the uber-smart Hoxton Bar & Grill I sipped strawberry cocktails and ate an indulgent three course supper (we’re talking scallops and chorizo, Chateaubriand and chocolate brownie bites with hot chocolate sauce) alongside the likes of The Very Simon G, Boy Meets Fashion and Alex Loves.

Ted Baker’s Survival Of The Fittest AW12 Collection

Ted Baker's AW12 Collection Catwalk ShowThe summer may be slipping away, but in terms of fashion there is nothing more exciting than having a sneak peek at what the autumn/winter high street has to offer. Jo (Style Compare’s head of fashion) and I were invited to Ted Baker’s AW12 fashion preview, and we couldn’t wait to catch a glimpse of what Ted has in store for next season.

The theme for the new collection is ‘Survival of the Fittest’ and although the catwalk backdrop was woodland prints lit with soft green and blue tones, there were no muted winter colours and trends on show when the models took centre stage.

Clarks Originals get remixed for AW12

Clarks Originals get remixed for AW12Last week I was invited to a fashion industry press day where lots of brands were showcased – and I was quite surprised by the new collection that caught my eye. Clarks has really pushed the boat out with its autumn/winter Originals design and created a range of footwear that is cool and contemporary with a big, fat nod to tradition.

Everyone is going to go Great Britain crazy…
