We’ve all waited for what seems like an eternity for the sun to shine and the blue skies to reign above us, and this week it finally happened. And we found ourselves humming, ‘The sun has got his hat on! Hip, hip, hip, hooray!’ every single morning! What a great feeling!

Nothing beats a fab dose of stylespiration, so when we popped down to the impossibly glamorous London Fashion Week on our style finding mission; we certainly had high expectations! Thankfully, the style pack didn’t disappoint, and Somerset House was packed to the brim with the most amazing looks – proving that London really is the fashion capital of the world!
Of course, no trip to LFW would be complete without stealing a few moments to catch up with our favourite bloggers. Check out their incredible outfits – and be sure to let us know your favourites in the comments below!

It certainly feels like London Fashion Week started and finished in the blink of an eye, but we had a fabulous time! And once again, the F&F team were on site at Somerset House with the important task of snapping the best style spotted on the street.
However, with so many wonderful outfits, we asked you guys to help us crown the ‘LFW Street Style of the Day’, by decide on your favourite looks over on our Facebook page! It was certainly a close call, but keep reading to take a peek at the best outfits of the week, as voted for by you!
With influences from the Parisian scene, we just adored the understated style and sense of cool this woman gives off. Bright reds and blacks go together perfectly and give a very classy feel to the outfit.
We loved how eccentric this outfit was! The big bold pleats are certain to turn heads and this girl really shows how to wear them. We especially like the mix between the subtle checks on one side and the vivid yellows on the other half of the dress. Oh, and just look at those gorgeous shoes!
Autumnal tones were definitely starting to emerge this Fashion Week, and we loved the combination of a bright orange v-neck top with a tailored tweed jacket, for that touch of English-gentleman. The outfit is also completed nicely with stylish boots and a vintage inspired leather satchel.
This amazing ensemble fits in perfectly with this season’s Monochrome Trend. We especially fell for the retro styling of her jacket, and the leather detailing on the sleeves are bang on trend for this season. Her vintage looking blouse is a wonderful addition and oversized 60’s glasses give her outfit that extra wow factor!
People often have doubts about clashing patterns, but this dress shows how they can look beautiful when done right. The transition between intricate prints on the top of the dress and bold black and white dots toward the bottom is flawless, and we love how she has balanced out the print with a pair of understated black ankle wedges!
We had a brilliant time this week at our F&F Autumn/Winter 2011 Press Day, and it was a great excuse to meet and catch up with some of our favourite (and fabulously stylish) bloggers! We met the lovely Susie at the event, and ever since we’ve been hooked on her gorgeous blog, Take-out in Couture!
Susie certainly knows her stuff when it comes to her personal style, and she has an eye for picking out outfits that are bang on trend, whilst being completely wearable. She’s not afraid of a bit of colour, and likes to add splashes of brightness into her outfit when she can – just take a look at this lovely colour blocking outfit, which we think would be perfect for a summer day in the office!
Not simply stopping at her own style, Susie also likes to keep a constant eye out for great fashion inspiration wherever she goes! We just can’t get enough of her street style posts – especially the effortless style of this adorable couple, and the ‘throw-it-on’ look that these bunch of cool kids have down to a tee.
Be sure to check out Susie’s blog if you’re at a loss for style creativity, and don’t forget to check out her gorgeous photos of our Press Day!

London Fashion Week is almost over and we couldn’t let it end without covering another trend – and this one is just in time for Spring.
Florals are one of those trends generations have loved so much, that many can now be defined by an era – think of floral 40’s tea dresses. This year would not be without them and we saw floral prints all over Somerset House during Fashion Week.
A couple of our favourite Street Style snaps from London Fashion Week:
Clashing prints: Leopard print, fur with a granny-chic rucksack. Bright, shiny, large flower print coat.

Here at F&F we love spotting wonderful street-style looks, and there’s no better place for it than at London Fashion Week!
What we love most is seeing how people take a trend and mix it up to create their own personal style. In this chilly February weather, one of the key trends we’ve spotted is knitwear, coming in every imaginable form from outerwear to dresses and scarves, it’s a trend that will keep even the busiest lady warm and stylish.

Hong Kong is a city of huge contrasts – Michelin-starred restaurants rub shoulder-to-shoulder with cheap noodle houses, the slick MTR underground system and countless red taxis run alongside the historic trams that trundle the width of the island, and fashion here is no exception!
The contrast between aspirational designer gowns and bargain market stall gems; smart workwear crafted by Hong Kong’s finest tailors and slogan T-shirts with ripped jeans evoking Japanese punk; traditional Eastern values borrowing from modern Western aesthetics is apparent from the moment you hit the streets.
Office ladies tend to be immaculately dressed at all times, usually in black, often with skyscraper heels or a luxe touch of designer arm candy. It’s not unheard of for entry-level workers here to live on instant noodles for a month in order to afford a pair of Louboutins come payday – now that’s dedication to style!
Youth style tends to be playful and experimental in Hong Kong, experimenting with slogan tees, customised or engineered denim and bright, colourful accessories. The city’s many small boutiques cater to the crowd that wants to stand out in this city of 7 million!
The yummy mummy is another definite feature of the Hong Kong style landscape. Manicures, pedicures and massages are considered essential maintenance here, rather than an occasional treat and styles tend to be well-heeled and certainly well-groomed. Plenty of neutral shades and well-cut denims along with expensive, if tastefully understated accessories that work from the PTA meeting to cocktails at sunset!
It’s a cliché, yes, but style here truly embodies the ‘east meets west’ vibe that the city is so famous for. Sometimes this can result in a clash, but generally the two cultures collide harmoniously to form a style that’s totally distinct to Hong Kong.
This week we want to tell you about Little Bird Fashion. It’s a blog run by Jen, who works as a copywriter up in Yorkshire. She loves high street fashion, and posts pictures of her daily outfits, which are a mixture of the latest high street styles and thrifty items.
She always shares her fabulous thrifty finds, quirky etsy treats and of course, “Sunday Smiles”. Her blog is a really pretty and fun place to spy on her sense of style, and we are sure it will inspire you!
Here are just two of our favourite looks from Jen:
We love how she mixes different patterns and colours in her outfits. She knows how to rock a trend! This outfit works both the floral and denim look well, which are both huge this season.
Jen flies the flag for all northern fashionista’s! Check out her post for a list of north based fashion bloggers for more inspiration.
You can also follow Jen on Twitter! Send her a tweet and share your fashion tips.
If you have any suggestions of blogs we should be reading, or featuring (even if it’s your own) let us know! We look forward to hearing from you….
With the World Cup just around the corner, we had our South African insider hit the streets to give us a taste of what the big trends and looks are in Cape Town.
Unlike here, the summer season has just ended in South Africa, and they are moving into autumn, which is why some of our models are dressed up a bit warmer than you would expect.
For those of you travelling to the World Cup, remember that it’s going to be rainy and a bit cold (although nowhere near as cold as our autumn). So stock up on light jackets and denim. If your not heading off to the World Cup, but want too make sure you enter our competition to win a family trip to the World Cup.
Our insider has informed us vintage clothing has always been a big part of Cape Town fashion, you can see a lot of vintage pieces in these photos. There are loads of vintage stores in Cape Town, and if you chose the right ones you can honestly snap up some ridiculously cheap bargains!
Our model in the red dress is rocking the ‘zef’ trend with her sunglasses, a South African trend epitomized by the band ‘Die Antwoord’.
What do you think of their style? Are you a fan?
If you’re in need of some stylish inspiration, look no further than London’s Portobello Road. Not only are there amazing vintage finds and jewellery stalls every few steps, but the fashion parade of stylish Londoners makes for a fabulous afternoon of people-watching and trend-spotting.
The cute girls shopping and browsing this afternoon had on lots of spring’s key trends like floral prints, lace and rock-chick style, seen on everything from studded accessories to tough-looking boots and jackets. We love how these girls put their individual spin on the trends – adding a burst of colour to an all-black outfit with a scarf or toughening up funky florals with a leather bomber (or giving them a preppy edge with a hunting jacket). Not even the occasional drizzle of rain could stand in their way!
Maybe we’ll snap a shot of you next time we’re in the neighbourhood…until then, happy shopping!
