East Village, NYC

I was walking to an appointment in my neighborhood when I passed this elegant woman. I quickly turned around, crossed the street and asked if I could take her photograph. She nodded in approval and continued on her way. Although we didn't exchange any words, I am so glad she stopped to let me take her photograph and look forward to running into her again in the  neighborhood.

What Ali Wore

All Photos by Zoe Spawton via What Ali Wore
It's not often that I come across sites as cool as Australian born, Berlin based photogrpaher Zoe Spawton's  tumblr What Ali Wore. Zoe spotted 83-year-old Ali as he walked by her work in a sharp new outfit every morning. One day she decided to ask if she could take his photograph. Zoe explains in her first blog post, " Ali walks past the cafe I work at in Berlin every morning at 9:05am. I’m not sure where he is going, but we always say hello to each other. He always wears such great clothes. I don’t speak much German and he speaks a little bit of English, but I managed to ask if I could take his photo. He gladly accepted. " Zoe and Ali have since become friends and collaborators. If you are a fan of Advanced Style then you are going to love What Ali Wore. Check more great shots of Ali HERE.

Coach x Advanced Style: Generations of Style


When Coach approached me about working with them on a digital project, I immediately thought about how their classic bags have such a broad customer base. I have always been interested in the intersection between the fashion choices of the young and old and noticed that young girls often seem to take sartorial inspiration, whether conscious or not, from older women. With these thoughts in mind, Lina and I worked together to create a series of inter-generational conversations between the Advanced Style ladies and some of our favorite bloggers. Check out the videos above featuring: Susie Lau and Ilona Royce Smithkin, Nadia Sarwar and Linda Rodin, and Leandra Medine and Lynn Dell for some ageless style wisdom.

Hey strangers, it's been a while (as always). I'm getting all my Asia photos together to show you which I'll post up next week. Everything's been a bit mental lately as I moved home, went to Asia and am now snowed under with work...it's also actually snowing which is equally as stressful.

This is just a post of the kind of thing I wear day to day. I definitely thought Id be floating around in maxi dresses and sandals at this time of the year but instead Im wrapped up in leather and faux fur. These amazing shoes were sent to me by SoYouShoes and although some people think studs are over.... I will forever be drawn to anything silver and spikey. The bag was an absolute bargain in the Urban Outfitters sale at Christmas and was reduced from £75 to £20 and is the bag that I pretty much use every day.

In other news, I've decided Im bringing the cap back. I'm working a bit of a "Challenge Anika" vibe but I'm totally ok with it. Now I just need to find a way of casually wearing a leotard on a day to day basis.

Anyways, Im off for afternoon tea because I'm so stereotypically British. Have a lovely weekend wherever you are.

Peace out.
