From The Archive: 2012

A year of fewer questionable outfit choices, I finally found my blogging groove in 2012, and here you can find some favourite pieces, band interviews as they first appeared and a lot of hats too...


Ladies behind the sidebar… September 2012

Founded by the incredibly talented Amy He, Mod Dolly was born in 2010 for modern girls who ‘like to be a little playful in their everyday styling’. Inspired by eras gone by, the pieces channel a modern twist on classic looks, each item carefully handmade and designed to be worn with love. With the Mod Dolly website having just relaunched and a stunning limited collection to choose from, it’s simply too good to miss out on (I heart the Amber Tartan dress)!

The Strawberry Sisters is written by the stunning Emily and Beth, two gorgeous red headed sisters with a penchant for fashion, food and fabulous cocktails- what’s not to love? With food photography gorgeous enough to make your tummy rumble (and recommendations of where to find it), gorgeous DIY’s to get under your belt and shopping trips and dresses to make your heart skip a beat (check out their LFW coverage too!), these girls are seriously in the know, and their gorgeous blog is a first stop for my fashion and foodie quandaries.

As soon as I discovered Charlie’s blog months back, I fell in love- this girl had the style I wanted, and her dreamy photographs of trips to tea rooms and the British seaside had me at hello. With a fashion sense gorgeous enough to rival that of Leith Clark, photography to make you book that train to Falmouth (or London, depending where she is), and storybook writing skills- Charlie’s blog is one of my absolute faves, plus after meeting her last month can confirm she is just as lovely in person- go go go!

Not only is Stephs blog a collection of honest beauty reviews, must-do DIYs (DIY studded brogues anyone!?), enviable cool outfits (I sometimes wonder if there’s anything she couldn’t pull off…) and stunning places to visit; but she’s one of the lovliest people ever (and has gorgeous hair, sigh!). With her blog being one of my favourite beauty, lifestyle AND fashion blogs- a visit should be in order from you all (I dare you not to fall in love with her gorgeous Bestival photos and dreamy guest posts!)

Twenty year old Sheri is the uber talented and doubly gorgeous lady behind, ‘Just blog it all instead‘. Her blog is a sunny mix of gorgeously girlie outfits (she knows her floral prints, ladies), perfectly photographed blue skied adventures by the sea, must have recent buys, beauty tips and tricks all wrapped up with Sheri’s beautiful smile. If you fancy getting lost in a fuzzy warm feeling blog, then I seriously suggest you head over here pronto- the perfect pick me up for these rainy Autumn days!

cold knees
Cold Knees comes from 25 year old London based Rachel- a girl whose style is certainly after my own heart. I’m pretty sure our minds are in style sync, as everything she wears I fall in love with- this girl has a serious eye. her blog documents her busy life in some of London’s most beautiful places, plus tasty treats, Lomo cameras, daydreaming and some cute kitties thrown in for good measure- one for your blogrolls!

miss princess
I’m pretty sure that we can all agree, that after clothes shopping the next best thing thing is shopping for our homes (there are few things as satisfying as whizzing round IKEA non?) However, Miss Princess Pancake offers something a little different. With beautiful home storage and trinkets, gorgeous little treats that make perfect gifts (or as a naught treat) and all totalling at under £15- this is a one stop shop for girlie goodness! See you at the checkout…

Being a shopping lover- I know how hard it can be to find good, well fitted vintage clothing. But fear not, online boutique, Vintage Style Me stocks a huge range of unique hand picked vintage items, made to be affordable, wearable (hurrah), and accessible- with pieces all the way from the 1940s to the 1990s. Not only are the pieces well priced, but with garments for both men and women (as well as a whole host of accessories on offer) there will always be something to satisfy your vintage cravings!

tilly jayne
20 year old Tilly-Jaynes blog is a haven for all things fashion forward; and is an outlet for ‘her daily (gorgeous) outfits and her fashion thoughts’. With outfits perfectly crafted from the high street’s hottest pieces (yes, she got her mitts on the Primark leather skirt…) and wish-lists that will send you speeding to the nearest checkout, it’s no wonder her beautiful piece of the internet has been featured in both Look magazine and a must visit!

Sarah’s uber hip blog is a style, fashion AND beauty blog with ‘touches of music, lifestyle and escapades of ‘The Girl About Town‘. Set up as a means of maintaining her love of fashion, TGAT brings outfits reminiscent of a certain Miss Chung, straight forward beauty reviews, up-to date fashion posts and beautiful pictures documenting her adventures around the world (you could easily be scrolling for a while…)

Physiotherapy students Sarah’s fashion blog brings with it stunning crystal clear photography (she even has amazing studio shoots!), absolutely brilliant reviews and tips, an incredibly lust worthy wardrobe and covetable wish-lists. Despite me not following many beauty blogs; I can happily say Sarah’s reviews are some of the best I’ve read- which is something in itself! Head over and see what I mean here!

Inspired by fashion, photography, interiors and people, Lauras gorgeous blog brings up to date listings of the most covetable pieces, exclusive press days (envy o’clock), some seriously striking outfit pictures (girl knows how to put a cracking outfit together), photographic updates of her daily adventures and some amazing hints and tips as to the best places to eat and see. Having met the lady herself at last seasons fashion week, I can confirm her as lovely as her blog presents- go go go!

After meeting the breathtaking Megan whilst filming the Dahlia Summer video earlier this year; I knew straight away her blog would be a treat in itself. A west country girl at heart and currently residing with her fiancé in Bath , Megans blog can only be described as a sugary fairytale fashion fantasy, with dreamy candy coloured outfits, recipes and scrapbook tales of her romantic day-to-day musings – plus she also has a wedding blog which is equally as stunning.

Rhiannons blog focusses on her musings of ‘fashion, art, music and sparkly things’ and anything she find interesting. Introducing brand spanking new music, hot to trot street style from the big smoke, hot new brands and exclusives from the ones we love, the coolest models (who knew Agy Deyn’s sister was with Select?!) and some seriously bad-ass nail art, Rhiannon offers a little something extra in the sea of fashion blogs and I can’t get enough of it (plus, she knows her fashion-stuff).

Currently residing by the great British sea-side as a student, Amys wonderful blog includes ‘fashion, muses, photography (personal and professional), beauty, reviews, music, literature and a whole lot of rambling’ (so everything you could ever want!) With a plethora of engaging posts and beau outfits, she also has a Youtube channel (would it be weird to say a lovely speaking voice too?) and the most gorgeous long-distance love blog which I’m pretty sure has taken over as my bedtime reading- so sweet.

The Style Tag is definitely one of those blogs that when you discover it, you give yourself a tiny kick for not finding it sooner. Plus, if you’re not instantly wowed by Lauren’s beauty (have you SEEN her hair) and Chung-esque knack for styling (despite what her blog posts may say- few girls can wear boys braces and look cool ok) then I don’t know what will. Not a blog for those who suffer from wardrobe envy, Lauren has the most awesome wardrobe ever and pulls everything she wears off with complete ease- how does she do it?
