 If Calvin Klein and Celine had a baby in the Serengeti this is what they would wear.

Once again, Isabel Marant hits the ball out of the park with classic separates that will be wardrobe staples for years to come. Those open knit trousers and flat pinhead studded sandals have my name slapped on them.

Emilio Pucci S/S 2015

Unsurprisingly so, Pucci was my star show of Milan Fashion Week. Dundas once again created the perfect capsule wardrobe for long balmy summer days complete with enough tie-dye to satisfy your inner hippy.

Soak it up.

Duck & Dry Chelsea

September 22, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

Anyone who lives in central London knows that getting a weekly blow-dry is a stretch. Starting at around¬†¬£45 a pop in a reputable salon it can quickly start totting up, especially if you’re in need of red-carpet ready hair or an updo. The alternative to this is to visit one of the numerous generic blow-dry bars that are spreading like wildfire that offer a one size-fits-all style and is filled to the brim with inexperienced stylists that want you to get out of the door faster than a school fire-drill.

Duck & Dry immediately caught my attention, especially after finding out one of the founders was hairdresser to the stars Snowden Hill. Snowden and I met when he was responsible for creating the most beautiful heads of hair at my best friends magnificent destination wedding a few years ago. He instantly put five picky bridesmaids and a bride walking into a rather large wedding at ease, ensuring that everyone was looked after, organised and most importantly happy. Partnering up with former management consultant Yulia Roarstrom (who funnily enough also had Snowden do her wedding hair), Duck & Dry was born.

¬†It’s no secret that Erin Wasson has the most impeccable street style but who knew that she was a wiz with interiors too. Her Venice Beach house in Los Angeles is as quirkily and eclectic as she is.

Issa S/S2015

September 16, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

It’s no secret that Issa has gone through a drastic make-over. After her second season, Blue Farrier is keen to show that Issa is no one-trick pony. The models sashayed down the runway in graphic printed separates with splashes of colour in poolside worthy mules. The recurring curve pattern looked like it had come straight from a Clyfford Still painting. Fast-forward a few looks and a graphic horse pattern appears (she previously worked at Chloe after all) which surprisingly marries the curved line incredibly well.

Review: bareMinerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

September 16, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

Foundations scare me. There’s just no way around it. I find faces caked in foundation hideously unattractive. To me, beautiful skin has different tones, freckles and signs of life.

I have never tried anything from bareMinerals; their powders just never appealed to me. I prefer a more dewy look then matte finish so it was only after hearing lengthy rave reviews on their latest liquid foundation that I began to take note. I picked this up on my final day in California from Sephora (find it here) with the accompanying brush and after two weeks of using this religiously I am the newest member of the club.

Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

September 8, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

Apparently I’m late on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz band wagon.

I’ve always had good brows; I’d go so far as saying on par with Cara Delevigne. After spending my early teen years trying to tame the beast and recreating what can only be describe as a Marlene Dietrich brow I’m lucky enough to say that they’ve grown back with a vengeance. Day-to-day I don’t do anything with my brows other than use a clear gel to keep them in place, however on weekends I sometimes feel the need for added drama. I used to reach for my trusted MAC Brun eyeshadow to do the job however after taking the plunge and picking up this god-send in Sephora I’ve found a new holy grail brow product.

Review: Girlactik

September 2, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

As soon as I got wind of this hot new beauty brand, I had to get involved. Girlactik is little known in the UK right now but not for long. During my annual summer pilgrimage home to California I was inundated with reviews, magazine articles and tweets about various holy grail products courtesy of Girlactik.

I’ve amassed a good selection of products to give me a real idea of what the brand has to offer and after using them religiously for a few weeks I’m ready to share my findings with the world (aka. the readers of SLSstyle).

REVIEW: Sara Happ The Lip Scrub

If this little box doesn’t bring joy to your heart, you’re loitering dangerously close to Scrooge territory.¬†I’ve been longing to test out Sara Happ’s lip scrub which is practically impossible to find outside of the US. I assumed that lip scrubs were all the same; flavoured sugar that ended up becoming a light snack. I used to swear by Lush’s lip scrub (I still highly recommend this) but could never quite talk myself into spending $25+ on a pot of sugar when a toothbrush could do the trick for a fraction of the cost. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
