Effortlessly Glam VS Street Glam

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

The ‘effortlessly glam’ look is so in this season, wearing casual outfits with heels or sexy slip dresses with casual trainers or boots are a perfect way to fool the world into thinking you did NOT think about you’re outfit before you walked out the door. For those who genuinely don’t worry about their outfits then you’ve hit the jack pot as you’ve just become uber trendy.

This look is also a perfect way to transition into spring summer while the weather isn’t quite what we’d like it to be. So no matter whether you’re a heels girl or a trainers girl here’s our ‘best buys’ to get you into spring.

Describe today’s OOTD in 1 word?

Clean (I think)

 

What are you wearing?

Shoes: OFFICE Feline ankle boot

Jewellery/ Belt: Vintage

Top: Topshop

Jeans: Urban Outfitters

 

What are your top three shoes this month?

Indigo Platform Ankle Boot

Toga Pulla Ankle Boots (available in our sister store Poste Mistress)

What’s inspiring you this season?

I have an extremely short attention span so my inspirations change daily, but right now; Dennis Wilson circa ‘Pacific Ocean Blue’, the idea of being self sustaining, every single one of my friends, anyone living their dream, and Robert M.Pirsig.

 

Fave song at the moment?

What a cruel question! Can I have two? Dinosaur Jr ‘Freak Scene’ and Creedence Clearwater Revival ‘Bad Moon rising.’

 

What shoes/trends are going to be big in AW15?

The 70’s goes 90’s – A hybrid of two of the biggest fashion resurgences of the last few years, and really easy way to incorporate two trends in one look.

Goth is also going sexy this winter, think premium and feature materials, lacing, and super stretch ankle boots.

Converse Chuck II Launch Event

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

The anticipated launch of the new Converse Chuck II was an event not to be missed.

We descended upon Victoria House in London and unbeknown to us the paint was being prepped. We were ushered into white boiler suits, science goggles (the type you haven’t seen since school days and Bunsen burners) and given a pair of fresh Converse Chuck II straight out of the box. We’re big fans of the classic All Star Converse so couldn’t wait to try out the newly designed Chuck II. And we weren’t disappointed.

The LunaLlon sock liner, padded collar, non-slip tongue and suede lining, straight from the gurus at Nike, made it feel like we were walking on marshmallows. Their top tip was to try half a size up to our normal shoe size which we would 100% recommend as well. Amidst the shoe fest, we spied Fabienne,  one of our very own #OFFICEMUSES15, who showed us how to work a boiler suit.

We also spotted our fave MIC member Oliver Proudlock with his crew, upcoming singer Conor Maynard and fashion blogger Cheyenne from snoochieshy.com

It was then that the mayhem started with water paint bombs and live spray painting – let’s just say we were thankful for the new comfy Converse Chuck II and boiler suits!

Hat: Nike

Jacket: Comme Des Garcons

Shoes: Reebok Workout

 What’s your top three shoes this summer?

Vans Vault OG Slip On

Reebok Work Out

Converse x Comme Des Garcon 70s Chuck

What’s inspiring you this season?

With grime music enjoying what has been undoubtedly its most successful year ever (hesitant to say musically best as I’m not sure anything will top the early – mid 00’s) and this resurgence has not just been in the UK but worldwide (shout out Skepta for a sold out US Tour and deadHYPE radio taking over Amsterdam) And the clothing has come with it – Tracksuits, Air Max 95’s (will always be 110’s to me), Workouts and a £12 curved peak hat are becoming a staple in wardrobes again, brands like Palace are internationally recognised and NYC’s finest are dressing like London road man.

 Fave song at the moment?

Jamie xx feat. Young Thug & Popcaan – I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)

 What shoes/trends are going to be big in AW15?

Reebok is definitely making a come back and I expect it to really blow for AW15

Timberland is also still going to about in a BIG way, and be ready for some serious Office exclusives!

Converse Chuck II – Launch 28.07.15

Friday, July 24th, 2015

Everyone knows and loves the classic Converse All Star, a wardrobe staple for generations. Now for 2015 Converse have updated this iconic shape and created the Chuck II.

CON70_Chuck II_Office_Debut_Digital_ipad_1536x1334px_01

The new model maintains some of its original features including the rubber toe cap, white foxing and All Star patch on the inside panel. However it adds some new technology with a Nike LunarLon insole, offering all round comfort.

Other features include a padded collar and non-slip tongue for an easy fit. Taking inspiration from the technology that is often use in running shoes, the Chuck II uses a perforated micro-suede liner for breathability and the upper is constructed from a durable Tencel canvas.

The updates may appear subtle to the untrained eye, but the new and slightly improved Chuck II is definitely one to watch. The original All Star will always remain a classic and the new Chuck II takes all the elements you loved about the original into this new update.

The Chuck II will launch online and in-store on Tuesday 28th July.

Guest Blog | It’s Cohen @ Glastonbury Festival 2015

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Out of office? On. Wellies? Packed. Glastonbury, let’s do this.

Festivals are my kind of “thing”. I’m hardly a seasoned camper (however much Guiding tried to convince me it was a good thing), but give me a field and enough antibacterial hand gel to last me a week and I’m pretty happy. Having had it on my bucket list for a good five years, Glastonbury was The Big One, and one very stressful ticket purchasing later my friends and I were off to Somerset.

rebeccac

I know everyone says it, but Glastonbury is massive. I decided to leave my phone at home (soz about that, Instagram). Pre-downpour, I relied on a pair of classic Converse All Star Hi’s, but soon enough the heavens opened and I called upon my trusty pair of Hunter wellies.

3 Glastonbury 2015 1

Weather aside (how typically British), we spent a fair amount of our time wandering round and exploring the site. From the main Pyramid stage and its dedicated, band t-shirt wearing gathering to the healing fields’ boho dresses and crochet knits, I’ve never been part of such a chilled crowd. Denim shorts and crop tops were left firmly at home, and instead people were opting for loose layers, textures and waxed jackets. The accessory of the season? Glitter. Lots of it. Worn on the cheekbones for maximum fairy highlighting.

4 Glastonbury 2015

My “Must-Sees” were the Who and Patti Smith, but my group’s varied taste in music made sure we saw a whole lot of people I wouldn’t normally venture out to see. Highlights included Florence and the Machine, Pharrell Williams, Ibeyi, George Ezra, Jessie Ware, and Modestep (not just because of Josh Modestep… promise). Special shout out to La Roux and her Bowie vibes and Lionel Richie for that smile – enough to melt hearts and even bring the sun out for a ray or two!

Heading back East via Stonehenge may have been tinged with a little bit of “wish we were there” sadness, but there’s nothing quite like liquid soap and refreshing the 2016 registration page to keep you going.

Get Ready for Glasto

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

The backpack is full, the tent is packed and we are almost ready for a week of fantastic music and culture at the legendary Glastonbury Festival in Somerset.

With headline acts Kanye West, Florence & the Machine and The Who, the festival is set to be an explosive one and we cannot wait to see what everyone is wearing.

Come rain or shine the crowds pull of some weird and wonderful outfits and are usually armed with a pair of trusty Hunter boots or classic Converse to keep them dancing from dusk til dawn.

Here is some of the looks and styles we will be rocking at Glasto this year.

NYFW Street Style: Day 3

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Day 3 at NYFW and our spy is still there, bringing the latest and greatest in street-style and the ladies of New York continue to impress with their FROW ready outfits.

Casual ankle boots in warm tonal shades of tan and khaki are prevalent. Our premium Scandinavian brand Ten Points offer plenty of quality leather pieces like this New Toulousse Chelsea boot in cognac. Keeping it comfy in trainers and sweats may not be typical fashion week attire but when worn correctly can exude laid back cool, a classic white leather Converse is perfect for this look.

 

LFWDAY3

A colourful trainer like this Reebok Princess in burgundy can be dressed up with tapered trousers and a fitted jacket. The gorgeous Olivia Palermo was spotted mingling with the elite, flawlessly dressed as usual, sporting a fur stole and 70’s flares. Our Vibrant pointed pumps are Olivia inspired and are perfect for a more comfortable and accessible look.

If like a lot of women you are partial to a bit of height but aren’t brave enough for stilettos try a mid heel in this season’s shade of light grey like our Winona block heel.

To emulate a more daring fashion week goer our slim heeled Promise stiletto in chic rose gold fits right in with the cream of the crop. Thigh high boots are definitely still keeping legs warm this spring, our best-selling Naughty stretch boot is back in stock, wear with a short leather dress and statement handbag.
