Taylor Swift @ BST Hyde Park

Monday, June 29th, 2015

On Saturday 27th we had the pleasure of attending the Barclays British Summertime Festival in Hyde Park, headlined by pop princess Taylor Swift.

Support acts included John Newman, Ellie Goulding, Vance Joy and Rae Morris who all took to the Great Oak stage and got the crowds dancing in the sunshine.

When Taylor came on stage earlier than scheduled, the crowd went wild. With fans ranging from 6 year olds to grandparents, she proved her worth as the ultimate pop star. Performing some of her classic hits like, I Knew You Were Trouble, Shake it Off and Bad Blood, the singer managed to schedule in many costume changes surrounded by a fantastic all-male dance troupe.

The highlight of the evening came whilst she was performing her hit Style, in which she welcomed onto stage her ultimate girl squad, which included Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Martha Hunt, Serena Williams and of course Cara Delevingne who waved the British Flag.

Mega fans came dressed in perfect pop star style, with flower headbands, boho outfits and plenty of accessories. The die hard fans went as far as to write Taylor song lyrics on their clothing.

Our experience as a Swifty fan girl was definitely a memorable one and we particularly enjoyed dancing to We Are Never Getting Back Together, whilst waving our light up wristband in the air.

We Are FSTVL #outofoffice15

Monday, June 1st, 2015

On Saturday we had the pleasure of attending We Are FSTVL 2015 in Upminster, Essex.

The sun was shining and the crowd was loving life at this mega dance festival in the middle of the countryside and we couldn’t wait to get dancing and style spotting.

The favourite footwear of choice seemed to be the now iconic Nike Air Huarache but there were a few other classic festival faves that we spotted throughout the day.

Guys were loving the white leather Converse All Stars, that they teamed with shorts and a tee for smart summer style. The girls were fans of durable Dr Martens and Hunter boots, that are super easy to wear with pretty much anything and equipped for all weather conditions.

Some of the alternative guys chose some Vans Old Skool’s and boots like our Cookie Desert Boots, going for a slight indie vibe, pairing with skinny black jeans and a white tee.

Some girls were loving the sunshine and opted for cute JuJu jellies that they paired with frilly socks and the fashion forward gals wore some 70’s style shoeboots like our tan Wanderlust.

We had the best time at We Are FSTVL, dancing to big acts like Gorgon City and MK and we will definately be taking some festival style pointers from the crowd. Bring on the rest of the festival season!

See you next year We Are FSTVL

Met Gala 2015 | Who Wore What

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

Last night the stars descended on New York to attend the annual fundraising Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts.

Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Cara Delevingne were amongst the celeb elite that embraced this year’s theme, China: Through the Looking Glass and their interpretations did not disappoint.

Organiser Anna Wintour placed a ban on mobile phones and selfies on the red carpet this year as to not draw attention away from the real cause of the evening and also to keep things a bit more “classy”. A big fan of a selfie, model Cara Delevingne chose to wear a tailored jumpsuit and have an intricate, temporary tattoo etched all over her arms and neck.

Although given a strong theme to wear this year, it seemed that more favoured the nearly naked look. Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, to no surprise showed off their best assets in sheer, embellished gowns and Beyoncé took everyone’s breath away with a jewelled Givenchy gown that was nude apart from strategically placed beading.

M

Rihanna and Katy Perry made a bigger statement with their choice of gowns for the evening, going for bright colours rather than the traditional Chinese red that seemed to be very popular.

Katy Perry was dressed by Jeremy Scott for Moschino and oozed 90’s supermodel with her new pixie crop hair, reminiscent of Linda Evangelista back in the day.

Rihanna was draped in an enormous canary yellow dress coat, edged with intricate embroidery and fur which definately made an impact next to the vivid red carpet.

Model of the moment Kendall Jenner and Disney pop icon to bad girl Miley Cyrus opted for peek-a-boo dresses, to show off their statuesque figures.

Miley’s medieval style, studded dress was custom made by designer of the moment Alexander Wang and despite looking rather demure than usual, the songstress added her own unique edge with a slicked-back blue hairstyle.

Kendall looked every inch the red carpet mermaid with her green crystal Calvin Klein gown, laced up the side to expose just enough flesh, not quite as daring as her older sister, who is not shy to some over exposure.

Unfortunately the long gowns do not give us a chance to peek at the shoes but luckily some chose to expose their ankles this year.

Mick Jagger’s daughter and model Georgia May Jagger looked breathtaking in her Oriental gown and chose to wear the shoe of the moment, the ghillie lace up. Get the look with our best selling Parisian heel in black.

There were some fashion highlights and some fashion disasters this year but as always the Met Gala did not disappoint with its host of famous faces and the odd gown a princess would be jealous of.

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Festival season kicked off with Coachella in California and we can’t get enough of the bohemian style that every girl was loving. Take some inspiration from the celebs, models and fash pack for your festival style and be the ultimate boho babe.

Think crochet crop tops, long kimonos, feather hair accessories and gladiator sandals as your base for a touch of hippie chic. Practice some messy hair braid and over accessories with plenty of rings, bangles and flower headpieces.

Add a touch of 70’s style with some suede Chelsea boots like the Bramble or a western fringe boot like the Minnetonka Bandera. Easy to wear, these boots look great with a bell sleeved, floral playsuit or some ripped denim shorts and a kaftan style top.

Get up to date with the hottest footwear style this summer, the ghillie lace up. The chunky Wild Thing heel is fab paired with a crochet smock dress, floor length kimono and some rose gold painted toenails.

A sandal is a must have in your festival backpack in case of warmer days and a classic Birkenstock is a summer favourite. The new mocha coloured Milano with rose gold hardware are perfect with a long cami and some paisley printed shorts.

Best Dressed Wedding Guest

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

It’s that time of year again where you have to start planning your outfit for maybe 1 or more friend’s weddings and that usual panic starts to creep up.

You don’t want to upstage the bride but lets face it, you want to get pretty close. Having the outfit and shoes decided will give you time to perfect the hair and make up and less time freaking out whilst crying in front of your wardrobe on the day.

bestdressedwedding

If you like to play it safe with the outfit then go with a plain colour (not cream, white or ivory) and make a statement with the shoes. Stand-out styles like the cut out Petite and sheer Premium Mesh heels are a great match with a simple shift dress or midi A line skirt and cami combo.

For more casual beach and countryside weddings then a wooden block heel like the Winnie or a glitzy sandal like the Ontario are your go-to styles. Pair with a cute floral tea dress or a maxi skirt and a bardot style top for a retro 70’s vibe.

For the girls who aren’t afraid of losing their stilettos in the grass, the slingback Pin Up heel in a summer pastel colour is a classic occasion shoe. Wear it pin-up style with a tight fitting dress or midi skirt and a high neck top with backless detail. As the heels do all the talking, keep the hair and accessories simple with some chic drop earrings and a low side bun.

adidas Originals Superstar : How to Wear

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

The end of 2014 saw the revival of some of adidas Originals styles from back in the day and 2015 is all about the adidas Superstar.

This shell-toe, B-Boy classic brings back memories of the 90’s when we were fully in the Spice girl phase and rocking our adidas popper trousers, crop tops and choker necklaces.

Although these trends have surprisingly come back around, the Superstar has a new sports luxe appeal and becoming one of the most papped styles at fashion week.

040215_blog

The classic black and white Superstar models are a good base to start with but with the imminent arrival of the adidas Originals x Pharrell SuperColour collection we will soon be spoilt for choice.

Keep things casual with some beat up boyfriend jeans, a stripy tee and an oversized blazer or wear with your ripped knee skinnies and a cosy chunky knit jumper.

What once was worn with a shell suit is now worn with an actual suit with the fash pack rocking them with some black tailored cigarette pants, a camel cocoon coat and some aviator shades.

The adidas Superstar is your 2015 wardrobe essential, so get in there early and start matching it with multiple outfits this season.

OFFICE Muses: – Meet Thomas

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Let us introduce to you to our OFFICE Muse, Thomas Hawking a musician and model.

He likes to keep things simple when it comes to his personal style and his footwear consists of well made classics. A self confessed style hunter, he is determined to track down something he really wants and make it his own. A rapper by trade he will often be found at his favourite rap clubs spitting bars but he doesn’t fit the rapper stereotype by any means, favouring a smart, neutral style when he performs. On dress down days he lives in his leather desert boots and adidas Superstars.

Check out Thomas’ Muse page and how to get his look here.

Why is office the brand for you?

I feel that OFFICE always has a consistent collection and always ticks the boxes when it comes to men’s footwear.

How do you shop?

I keep my eyes open for specific things and when I see something I like I style it to make it my own. We are lucky to live in a time that if we see something we like we can hunt it out and usually find it.

What are your top picks to get you through January?

With it being pretty cold this time of year I would definitely suggest lots of layers, I often wear a thin bomber jacket under a thick wool Harris Tweed jacket when it is really cold. Some hard wearing Timberlands or leather desert boots are a must for everyday.

What do you wear on stage how does it differ from your daytime look?

When I’m rapping I like to wear smart stuff and keep thing neutral, simple and well made. Wearing the right clothes and shoes always helps to make you feel at ease on stage and I like to add a unique spin on classic looks. Most people associate rappers with sportswear and baggy clothes and don’t get me wrong I live in my trainers sometimes but I also like to wear some nice loafers or leather boots when I’m performing.

How important is footwear when building your outfit?

I have quite a specific idea of what I like so footwear is very important to me as it completes an outfit. Whether I am staying casual with a desert boot or mixing in some sportswear with an adidas Superstar, the whole look needs to work together.

What are your style resolutions for 2015?

For me it is finding key pieces that will see you through as I’d rather invest in quality. It would be great to find 4 or 5 shoes that will see me though until summer, I like transitional styles, such as desert boots, trainers and some suede lace ups that are good throughout the seasons.
