Just Arrived

I have a recreational habit. 3 times a week, at least, I go onto my favorite British fashion retail websites and pick out everything I’d be buying, or drooling over, if I were still in London. 

I dream up outfits, make a wish list, and visit them every other day at their online home base. Sometimes, when I know a trip home is looming, I’ll binge and order said wish list, knowing that after that red eye they’ll be sitting on my bed at home in all their UPS wrapped up glory.

This week I am mostly coveting River Island. A leading British high street chain that is quick on the trend uptake and yet always unashamedly adds its wonderfully garish and bold accent, every time.

I wanted to share my dreams and wish lists with you, aka; my outfit concoctions from River Island’s latest ‘Just Arrived.’ Hope you enjoy!

So, funny story… 

At the beginning of June I had the pleasure of assisting Deborah Brett on Red Magazine’s September issue, with cover girl, Kelly MacDonald.

Shot in Chelsea Market’s Space Studios, Macdonald (star of Brave, Boardwalk Empire and Trainspotting - to name a few) was everything everyone says she is; sweet, funny and professional.

The pictures, shot by David Gubert, are stunning. A beautiful representation of Red and Kelly.

*The funny part of the story is that the week before, I had just filmed my first ever featured role, in none other than Boardwalk Empire… Small world uh!?
