It’s In The Detail

It’s all about those little details, fringing, lace, tassels, embellishment; and the G21 range at George has it all.  This little cami dress with beaded embellishment is perfect for festivals, chilling in the park, partying, a beach/pool cover-up…it’s a beaded all-rounder!  I’ve teamed it with this rather jazzy tassled statement necklace and lace fringed kimono which is the ideal cover-up for summer.

In The Fringe

Who says you need to be festival bound to wear a cocktail of crochet and fringing?!  I spotted this incredible top on a member of Topshop staff in the Oxford Street branch last week and dragged my friend Charlotte off in search of it.  It’s pretty pricey (£65) for something that is essentially made of holes but it does have leather patches all over it which have clearly bumped up the price.  It’s got great movement in the long fringe trim and is light enough for hot summer days so all round a perfect summer staple!

East Coast Live

Courtesy of F+F Clothing and BlinkBox Music I was sent to East Coast Live on Saturday.  Now I’m not actually that obsessed by music, if I hear a song I like…I like it, but I don’t go out of my way to see music live etc.  That said, as my experience with live music is limited, East Coast Live was pretty good, minus the torrential rain when I got there.  I did have a backstage pass so I wasn’t based at the front of the stage but I got a nice cushty view from the side of the stage to watch all the acts; Neon Jungle, Union J, 5 Seconds of Summer, Jason Derulo, The Saturdays and Jessie J to name but a few.  Being backstage I got to see all the artists is their ‘natural environment’ and caught a lovely sight of Marvin & Rochelle Humes with their gorgeous little daughter just being a normal family, granted the little one has pop star parents but that’ll be the norm for her!  I also spotted Jason Derulo (You gotta sing that to get the full effect!) and his tribe of dancers pumping themselves up before they went on stage, it was like filming a rare bird doing some kind of mating dance…I did feel borderline Attenborough-esque.
Outfit-wise I went for a pair of F+F short dungarees with a cropped jumper worn underneath and a check shirt tied around my waist.  (Full links and outfit details below)

Tranquil

I know I did an entire weeks worth of Festival Style not long ago but I was asked by F&F to style a Festival look using one of their pieces and you can’t get more ‘Festival’ than these amazing embroidered shorts (£12).  So not only are they bang on it with the style but they are quite possibly the best fitting denim shorts I’ve ever had!  They’re not too short, and you know I’m always banging on about ‘booty shorts’ and how I hate them, well these are just perfect!  There’s only really two occasions when you can wear a Kimono and that’s A. on holiday and 2. at a festival, so I’ve gone with an embroidered Kimono to compliment the shorts with a basic tee, gladiator sandals and a fringed bag.  It’s casual cool with the ethnic mix that’s perfect for the laid back festival vibe.

Festival Style: Woodstock Western

We’re on Day 2 of my Festival Style Week and today I wanted to go for the western/boho trend we see so much of at festivals.  This look just has accents of ‘western’ with the fringed MissGuided jacket and turquoise detailed belt.  You could go all out and add some cowgirl boots and straw hat but I wanted just a subtle touch to mix with the bohemian elements, so it has almost a Woodstock feel about it.
Thank you to my gorgeous long faced co-star ‘Rolly’ for being such a good neddy and posing with me.  Thank you also must go to his humans Liz & Jenna for letting me use him in this post.

Festival Style: Neon Vibes

As I’ve been wanging on about for the last couple of weeks, this week is all about Festival Style here on EJstyle.  Us brits love a good Festival and what’s more is that this is the time to really try something different with your style.  Anything goes during a festival, so this week I’ll be bringing you some ideas on festival styling ala me.  Ironically I’m not, yes not, actually going to any festivals this year which I’m regretting now after shooting this feature all week because there are some great festival themed pieces on the high street right now.  But hey, if anyone wants to pop me in there rucksack and take me along to a festival, do feel free!
Kicking off Festival Style Week I went for a Coachella vibe with this neon palm print coord from MissGuided teamed with a cool denim jacket covered in retro patches (also MissGuided).  Finishing the look with some miss-matched brightly coloured nails, neon sunnies and a fedora (coz I can’t live without them!).  Links to all the items in this outfit are below as usual.  Stay tuned for the rest of my festival outfits all this week!
