St Martin’s Courtyard Presents Fashion Film Festival for London Fashion Week, 15-17 September

St Martin’s Courtyard will be transformed into an open air movie theatre to showcase a Fashion Film Festival. A full sized cinema screen will pop-up for three nights during London Fashion Week in September showing iconic fashion films for free. The British Fashion Council will bring the catwalk to St Martin’s Courtyard, screening footage of the shows before the films, a rare opportunity for the public to enjoy a Fashion Week event.

The St Martin’s Courtyard Fashion Film Festival will open on Sunday 15 September and will run until Tuesday 17 September. Choose between tongue-in-cheek fashion comedy Zoolander (Sunday 15 September), fashion industry favourite Grey Gardens (Monday 16 September), or catch a glimpse behind the scenes of American Vogue in The September Issue (Tuesday 17 September).

Silent Cinema is beautifully simple: you wear wireless headphones to watch great films on a full size cinema screen. 120 free tickets are available for each screening through a prize draw. If you’re not one of the lucky ones to win a pair of tickets, be one of the first to arrive on the night and there will be a number of tickets available for each screening on a first come first served basis.

Monochrome is trending

So even though the weather isn’t very spring-like at the moment I am determined to introduce some new bits to my wardrobe. Apparently this season it’s all about monochrome! Celebrities have jumped on the wagon and on the runway at fashion week we saw, spots, line, stripes, it was all black and white! Anyone can pull off this trend and luckily for us gals the high street has followed suit.



Here are my picks from the high street this spring…brrr.. cardigan may be needed!



Left to right: Aldo Maria – two tone block heeled shoes – £75.00 With their glossy finish and block heel, these sandals are statement makers.

Cat shaped bag – Ebay – £19.99 – tres cute and just a little bit kitsch this  bag can be carried as a clutch.

Asos Bold stripe Midi dress – £32.00 – If you love the fifties then you’ll love the shape of this flared skirt. Swoosh!

Chiara Fashion – £ 8.95 – Monochrome Striped Print Long Sleeve Crop Top – this season it’s all about crop tops – only for the brave!

What do you think of my picks?

Lanky girl’s high street looks for Spring 2013

With the temperature creeping up a few degrees, I have been looking at items for the spring to add to my wardrobe. I love all the lovely bold colours and monochrome inspired collections that we are seeing on the high street. This season’s ultimate investment piece for me has to be a shirt dress, this is a versatile item that can be dressed either up or down and worn with leggings for when the weather isn’t as kind.

Check out my picks of great things in the shops at the moment:
