A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to shoot with the lovely people at Miss Selfridge (as well as the gorgeous Emily and Lily) for their new Collective collection, which has just landed in stores this week (continue reading at your bank account’s own peril). The collection offers a selection of pretty luxury staple pieces, from layered 90’s inspired dresses (how much did I used to love the strappy dress and t shirt combination growing up? They have the lazy girls answer!), PU midi skirts of dreams, fresh colour pop blouses and leather jackets that will keep you swooning for hours. This and next season’s wardrobes sorted? I think so.
The idea of the shoot was to bring some of our own favourite wardrobe pieces, coherent with our personal taste- to style up with the collection. For me this equated to floaty embroidered dresses, a vintage floral blouse I picked up at Glastonbury and a pallet built up of muted and pastel tones- with of course, my favourite selection of millinery (or y’know just big hats). Considering Lily, Emily and I all have very different styles, it speaks volumes that each of us had no problem working it into our wardrobes and all certainly managed to build pretty massive lust lists (with mine consisting of the above long leather jacket and midi skirt). Luckily the products are dropping all the way through to November, so there’s still time to save ; )
