London Fashion Bloggers Meetup

Apologies for being AWOL for a while,Have had a busy couple of weeks, with new projects and deadlines mounting on my desk!

It made me doubt my own time management skills, till I met a few other fellow bloggers at the first ever London Fashion Bloggers Meetup,and was told it is alright if you happen to miss out a few posts when working full-time!

The whole ideas behind the London Fashion Bloggers Meetup was to network with other bloggers, Digital Fashion Startups, Online Boutiques and Labels and last but not the least Online Retail Businesses, and I must admit, I was very pleased with the outcome.

Getting some cupcakes from Crumbs and Doilies, with a Bon Fire Night theme, the meetup was organised at Founders Arms, with a gorgeous view of the St.Pauls. Some of us were spotting the fireworks in the sky, and other clapped on the trails of it, in between sipping some great Bloody Mary and Mulled Wines:)

On the whole, it was a great night with a good turnout,great conversations regarding the future of bloggers, the hardship of being a blogger and how to carry on doing what you do without loosing yourself to brands while maintaining originality!That, and plus the company of great people who think alike..what else could one ask for?

Have a look at the pictures.List of all the attendees is at the bottom of the page.

The Gen Z

I have been feeling so ashamed of myself lately!

I need to pour out!!! I have been reading of 13-16 year olds starting their brands/being ahead of their game when it comes to being a “Style Blogger”,and almost taking over a fashion editor’s seat at New York Fashion Week’s most sought after designer’s front row!

I am not kidding when I say this, I feel so backward, I have not been able to sleep! I am not saying Anna Wintour has competition,but rest of us, we better pull up our socks, before we are rendered obsolete, by the Gen Z!

Well,now that I have gone on a rant, I will let the sensible side of my head talk, Few reasons why the Gen Z is where it is at:

  1. Internet Invasion
  2. PDA/Mobile Phone/Laptop Freedom ( My friend’s 2-year-old Niece knows how to unlock my iPhone and start her favorite app…On the other hand I did not how to use T9(or auto correct) till I was 19! Shame on you Diana!
  3. Blogosphere exposure, which is so important, this really means, you don’t have to save your pennies to get that one expensive magazine to know what to wear/not to wear.
I do wish I was born in this generation though, but who knows Gen Z shall be envious of some 5-year-old blogging and Modelling , 2 years from now.Fine (NOT) example is the French Brand Jours Après Lunes, is really advertising lingerie for 4-12 year old girls.Gasp! I know!Let’s not even start that conversation!
On the other hand, I do get inspired when I am walking on the street and come across youngsters who are so aware, of what to wear and where to wear, and what looks good on them, it just creates an aura of confidence around them. A confidence which is surely going to go a long way.
I was writing an article on Coloured Denim, when I came across this sister duo, who oozed out this comfortable confidence, I am talking about.
You know that they made an effort, and that was the attractive bit.
So here are my soul sisters.
Niamh, I am sorry, but thank you for mailing in. I hope I have done justice to your style! xx
Soul Sisters!

Coloured Denim have no rules or formulas. Just wear them when you ready to rock the streets.

Must have item: The Bow Blouse.

Hot Pink with White Tips. Excellent choice to compliment the florals.
