Fashion Week Mania

And breath! Last week was simply manic, manic in a very good way of course ! London Fashion Week, DJ gigs, panel talks and the Brits all in the space of one week, so it really was the perfect partnership teaming up with Vita Coco to keep us hydrated and revitalised during this busy period. Below we give you a little insight into how we prepared for our busy schedule, where we went, our ultimate essentials and what we wore!

How we prepared

Preparation is key during fashion week so we made sure we had this down to a T!

- Morning smoothies: Always start the day off well. We made the most delicious berry smoothies which kept us going until lunch time! Super easy to make and takes 1 minute! Grab a handful of spinach, frozen berries, blueberries, cashew nuts and a small bottle of vita coco and blend together. The perfect way to start the day!

- Early nights: We were in bed by 10.30pm most nights as we wanted to avoid the dreaded puffed eyes as we knew we would be getting lots of photos over the next few days!

- 15 mins of meditation- Sometimes stress can get the better of you, especially if you don't think you've got enough time in the day to do everything. 15 minutes of calm and relaxation in the morning is the ideal way to keep calm and collected throughout the day.

 

Where we went & what we did

We tried to keep shows/ presentations down to a minimum as we were busy either shooting content, DJ'ing or preparing for presentations. The highlight of the week had to be The Brits with Reserved! What a fun night, although the next day you could say we were feeling slightly worse for wear. The best hangover cure? Vita Coco!

RESERVED

'Start the new year as you mean to carry on' and that's certainly what we've been doing! Since coming back from our travels and setting ourselves some stealth new years resolutions (and sticking to the majority of them you'll be pleased to know) we mean serious business!

Now serious business entails looking the part at all times. I won't lie and say it's easy to look and feel the part constantly, (especially after Christmas) most days Loanne and I love nothing more than chilling in our trackkies with no makeup and just slodging, yes SLODGING! Haha 

What I can say though is that it really helps to have items in your wardrobe that instantly make you feel like a power house, those effortless items that require no effort to work with, that tuck you in, in all the right places, well that's exactly where our RESERVED items come into play!

Jordan is wearing the black trench coat which you can slip over anything, jeans, a dress. The fit is great and accentuates the waist, dress it up or down, this coat is a serious winner and the inside detailing has a cute poetic message inside. I've paired it with a pair of grey suede boots, cute and simple.

Loanne is wearing a lovely silk polka dot shirt (I'm a sucker for anything polka dot, even if it's out of fashion i'll still  be wearing it until the day I die!) she's paired it with some silk high-waisted black palazzo pants which is extremely flattering for the figure! We love a bit of silk on silk, it's sophisticated, sexy and just utterly dreamy! Kinda got that PJama feel but that's the vibe we go for!

Puma X Office Collab

Since embarking on our blogging and DJing career full time (just over a year ago) , collaborating with our favourite brands was always top of our priority list. So this recent collaboration with Puma and Office was definitely one of our proudest to date. Since we were kids, Puma has always featured in our lives whether it be for sporting events or fashion affairs and as a brand it has always been one that we’ve resonated with most, so inevitably collaborating with them was a huge honour for us!

We spent a day shooting with the OFFICE and PUMA team to showcase PUMA’S latest trainer releases including the Puma Fenty cleated creepers  and Puma fenty pointed cleated creepers Which we absolutely LOVE!  Jordan and I got to style the whole shoot ourselves which was amazing as we got the chance to pair the trainers with the exact outfits we would tend to wear them with!

This collaboration has also recently been featured in Grazia, which we we're extremely proud about too, as well as on the OFFICE blog, which you can read here 

Below are the images  from the shoot and don’t forget to shop the trainers! Enjoy :)

Our Favourite Autumnal Accessories

Autumn is well and truly upon us and to be honest we’re extremely happy about it. No…not about the colder days and darker nights but instead for the cozy knits and endless layers of clothing.

We both agree that during the winter, it’s not always the easiest to maintain a glamorous look when jeans, wooly knits and jackets prevail but one thing that can give you that edge is accessorising your outfits, whether that’s a cute pendant, stacks of rings or a statement clutch.  

This month we’ve linked up with the accessories brand, Accessorize, in order to style up our autumn looks with some of our new, favourite pieces!

For us, Autumn and winter are always busy in terms of parties, DJing and events, so it’s important for us to pick looks and pieces that we can wear in the day but that are also versatile enough to wear at night , dressed up with our favourite party outfits! The smaller clutch bags in the Accessorise collection alongside their jewellery (which can be layered and stacked for a more glamorous look) are the perfect additions to achieve this.

As most of you know, we love our simple jewellery and it’s rare to see us rocking bold statement pieces very often, so we chose some of Accessorize’s rings that match our style perfectly. Super simple stacking rings both in gold and silver which pair amazingly with any type of colour of outfit. Both of us normally wear gold however Accessorise have some amazing silver rings so I personally thought I’d change it up a bit and rock the silver, where Jordan has stuck with her staple gold. Perfect for both a casual day out shopping or a fancy evening dinner party. You just can’t go wrong with these simple, stacking rings.

One thing you’ll always see us wearing with any outfit (even pyjamas sometimes) are pendants, and this season, Accessorize have some super cute ones we just had to get our hands on. A few that we are obsessed with at the moment are those with stars and moons on. We’re absolutely loving this pattern at the moment, which you’ll probably gather by the two matching clutches we’re wearing as well, both covered in gold stars. And… if that wasn’t enough, we also chose matching style berets. Stars galore! Talking of berets….there does seem to be a resurgence of the beret this season and we’re loving it. French, elegant and sassy! We both recently changed up our hairstyles for the winter, and there’s nothing like a cute hat to accentuate them. ‘Beret nice indeed!’

As well as the starry clutch bags we also chose a couple of cute over the shoulder navy, furry body bags which again are perfect for both the day and night and you can release the strap on them for a perfectly party ready clutch. We both wore them last week on a cheeky shopping spree around Notting Hill and wore them the same evening when out Djing in Camden at Oktoberfest. Transitional or what!

Talking about Djing, I’m sure other female DJs out there would agree, the last thing you want to be worrying about when playing to a crowd of hundreds of people, is lugging around a huge bag with you and having to faff around with all your unnecessary items lost amongst a jumble of mess. (Maybe we speak for ourselves here in regards to the jumble of mess!) A small bag is the the perfect choice when heading to play your music at a set. If you’re like us, we only DJ off USB’s now, which makes things a lot easier and a lot lighter. So having a small cute clutch bag or an off the shoulder bag to simply chuck your USBs, phone and money in, is literally all you need! Hence why we’ve chosen a few from Accessorise this season. Not only stylish but super practical! Where do the headphones go then? I hear you say… Just around our necks….We’re cool like that ;)

Now I'm not sure about you guys but we always find jewellery boxes hard to keep our dainty necklaces and pendants in, so draping them over decorative cocktail glasses seems rather fitting and stops the necklaces from knotting, it also looks pretty cute, bonus.  

We’ve included a variety of casual day-time and smarter evening wear shots amongst our images to illustrate the transitional nature of the Accessorise pieces we’ve chosen this Autumn. We’ve already been wearing these pieces constantly: Come day, come night, come lunch dates, come dinner parties, come shopping sprees, come DJ gigs, you name it, these pieces are a perfect match for all of these occasions. All we can say is, thank god the stigma attached to wearing the same clothes isn’t attached to wearing the same accessories, if so, we’d be guilty of some serious fashion faux pas!

London Fashion Week - Our most coveted bags

So after all the mayhem, the buzz, the travel, the shows, the shoots,  London Fashion Week has finally come to a close. This was in fact the first official Fashion Week we'd done together this year, as last season I flew to Cape Town leaving Loanne all alone (sigh!)  So to make up for our previous absence we made sure to prepare everything in advance from our schedules to outfits, hotel stays and photographers!

As they say failing to prepare is preparing to fail and failing certainly wasn't on the agenda. 

So day four of fashion week ard our looks revolved around these iconic Karl Lagerfeld bags. We’ve always been a fan of Karl Lagerfeld’s bold designs and constant reinvention and his quirky bags have always been a winner for us! These shoulder bags are the perfect size, big enough to fit all your fashion week essentials but small enough not to worry about dragging a big bag around with you. They can also be worn as either a shoulder bag or clutch. Double tick! 

We’ve both opted for different looks here.

I went for a full black number to ensure the covetable blush clutch remains the signature piece! Made from smooth leather it’s striking silver hardware adorned with Karl’s signature makes it a statement piece without it being to OTT. As most of you know, Loanne and I are more into understated, classic pieces that don’t scream ‘look at me now’ so this bag works perfectly for the pair of us!

For my outfit I chose a classic biker style jacket from Karl Lagerfeld that has multiple zip details and coin pockets. The best part of this buttery soft leather style is the metallic silver trim under the collar! I paired it with some classic A-line culottes and a pair of studded black boots. It’s important to feel comfortable during Fashion Week especially if you’re running around from show to show. The clutch gives the finishing touch to my all black ensemble.

So Loanne went for a slightly more casual look made more sophisticated with the Karl Lagerfeld black and white blazer to match her black and white clutch. The blazer’s black satin collar and lapels create a sharp and elegant contrast. The jeans and T-shirt gives a sense of effortless, cool to the outfit which is perfect for a daytime outfit. The best thing about these bags is that they transition perfectly from day to night so you can rock them as shoulder bags during the day at shows then use it as a clutch for the after parties!

These are definitely one of our favourite signature clutches of Karl’s and their versatile nature means we'll be making a lot more use out of them.
