Cigarette Trousers: COS

Vest Top: Primark 

Leather Biker Jacket: French Connection 

Towers: TopShop 

Watch: from my fav £10 watch stall @ Shepherd's Bush market 

I love cigarette trousers and you just can't go wrong with picking up a pair from COS, they offer the perfect fit, great quality fabric and make every look totally chic. 

I know cigarettes are bad for you really, but when running down your legs in the form of trousers you'll start a healthy addiction.

This week MY DAY WITH, was spent at the Sinclair London studio! I was totally excited when Alycia Sinclair invited my Fashion Ass over to spend the day talking about all things fabulous. Not only is she lucky enough to have her own studio to work in equip with a pattern cutting table, Mannequins and sewing machines but the bonus is she can fall out of bed each morning and get straight to work because the studio is at home! 

 Currently working on a bespoke ladies suit with waistcoat for a new client. 


Alycia is a busy young lady, you will find her making bespoke pieces for clients, doing endless amounts of alterations for a number of bridal boutiques but she also finds the time to work on her own collection, Sinclair London! 

At 16 Alicya was more than ready to leave school and just wanted to get out in the big wide world and learn about the fashion industry. After getting through her A Levels, she decided that spending years at University just wasn't an option and she was keen to start her career as soon as possible (go girl)! From a young age everyone could see Alicya's natural talent for designing so it was no surprise when she was selected to enrol on a unique and intensive course with 5 other people at Maurice Sedwell on London prestigious Savile Row.

After getting her Diploma and learning everything she needed to know about tailoring and constructing a garment from scratch, Alicya went onto do a number of amazing internships but her favourite will always be the time spent at Oswald Boateng because she was given the opportunity to travel and take part in preparations for large fashion shows. I love a bit of gossip so I had to find out if Alicya had any big names to drop and when she told me that doing the alteration on Kelly Rowland's corset is one of her biggest achievements so far I was totally impressed.

I thought it was only right to keep this Sinclair London hat on for the rest of the day!

Whilst I was hanging out in the studio, I did have to remember that it was a working day for Alycia and she did have important deadlines to meet, so I left her to it for an hour or so and decided to occupy my myself by picking out my favourite Sinclair London pieces to share with Y'all.   

This is totally my fav, I nearly dropped dead with excitement when I spotted this red collar blazer 

Ladies oversized Flannel Blazer

Sinclair London's full collection launches in 2014 so for Alicya that means sketching, endless boards of inspiration, pattern cutting, toile fittings, fabric selections and much, much more! 

Patterns and bespoke bag samples for the brand

  I did spend the whole day hinting at how amazing the blazer with the red collar is, so to shut me up Alicya stripped me down and took my measurements and I will now be the proud owner of my own bespoke Sinclair London blazer (the fact that she's one of my best friends totally had nothing to do with it at all;) 

Mrs Sinclair London's achievements and determination so far is totally inspiring and I will be keeping you updated with all the future events surrounding the brand. If you would like to contact Alicya regarding her bespoke services, future collection or just find out a bit more about the course she studied or internships you can contact her directly anytime:

IT'S REUSABLE! #Starbucks

If you love coffee and Starbucks then on your next visit you need to have an extra £1 ready to invest in your reusable cup, not only does the cup help the environment it also saves us money Y'all. Every time you take a Starbucks trip and request your favourite coffee in your reusable cup you get 25p off your order, how amazing is that!
Just think if you have a coffee everyday like myself,  I'm going to now save 25p every day, which equals a saving of £1.75 per week, £7 a month and the best part a massive (wait for it, my Maths is terrible) £84 a year, which is more than enough to get a Christmas outfit at the end of the year! I don't know about you but my cup is washed and ready to go for tomorrow mornings white Americano!

Last night it was all about the Carnaby 20% shopping party, but before I go into the whole vibe let me start with sharing my outfit:

Coat: French Connection 

Dress: Designer boutique on Brick Lane 

Boots: Office 

Necklace: Gold (Vintage)

Shades: Chanel

Shoppers out in full force!


Carnaby Street as we all know is full of some of our high street fav's, independent boutiques and the must go make-up counters. The majority of the stores (which equals hundreds might I add) were offering a 20% discount, so if you weren't there last night I'm not really sure why!

To make it a total summer party Kopparberg where throwing out free cider, DJ's where mixing all over the joint, model scouts where out looking for a new face or two and goody bags were up for grabs.

Free drinks Y'all

 The queue for MAC was just totally ridic, I'm sure they may have sold out last night!

 I also sat in on a interesting 30 minutes talk with Anthony Gordon from Premiere and Katherine Ormerod, senior Fashion News and Features Editor at Grazia to listen about all things fabulous. It was great to hear what Anthony had to say about his career as a model scout and he gave an interesting insight into what it takes to become a super model in a tough industry. After listening to his wealth of experience and top tips on becoming a model scout or a model, it was great to hear that the highlight of his career was scouting girls that had been teased at school for being tall and strange looking, to then see them on a cover of a magazine making thousands. 

Katherine Ormerod also gave a talk armed with examples and top tips on how to wear this season's hot trend, the metallic! Twisting the usual silver and gold to add more colour to the theme. We are all aware about the whole neon vibe that's been popping around and it appears to be holding on for our whole summer season! So we might as well embrace it... and Keep it going with our neon beanies and electric t-shirts. Katherine explained that this spring/summer is all about chilling with the look being relaxed yet fresh. Exchanging the super fitted bodycon's for more relaxed tailoring, loose jeans and simple t-shirts with a plad shirt for when the summer evenings draw to a close. 

On the make up front the vibe is light and natural, with a soft look for your hair pushing away the super straightened look and embracing the tussle. All though we want to be sporting lots of colour and prints the Monochrome trend is still alive and kicking and more importantly...timeless. Whether it's checked or stripped it's massive this season and totally chic. 

The tip that stood out the most was that we should all be looking to invest in a over sized patterned or brightly coloured scarf. The summer in London is not exactly Mediterranean temperatures and our crisp air always finds it's way home, so I'm sure we'll get plenty of use out of a fabulous accessory to wrap around us!

 And finally, the 90's trend is coming back at us in full force so looks like we need to start digging through our old school outfits, washing the dungarees and adding a bit of TLC to those outfits Y'all.

All in all it was a totally fashionable evening, but to top it all off the Grazia Style hunter team approached me and I was 'spotted'. I was swinging my bags and chatting to my bestie's along Carnaby street and before I knew it they were snapping a picture of my outfit and I won a goody bag courtesy of Grazia!

Rolling stones canvas bag filled with all my goodies. 

Looks like this weekend I'll be applying my new NATIO AGELESS HYDRATING FACE MASK, moisturising my hands with the luxury CRABTREE & EVELYNE HAND CREAM and manicuring my nails with IMPRESS leopard print nails. 

Doing my eye make up with  A LA CARTE MASCRA, VOLTURI EYE SHADOW and PIXI BY PETRA LID & LINE then spraying myself all over with  A LA DIDPOSITION FRAGRANCE.... After such a busy pampering session I will have to hydrate myself with the quirky, stylish, MARC JACOBS DIET COKE, eat my  SOUR CREAM POPCHIPS and NATURAL BAR then off out with my DROP DEAD CLOTHING SOCKS! Thank you Grazia!

Everyone that knows me will know I'm totally fascinated by new designers and I feel it's only right to start sharing that with you guys on a regular basis! This weekend I headed  down to a studio in east London to meet Maria Katharina-Richter's who is the designer of new label TinkiLove. Maria's collection is amazingggggggggg and here are my favs:

This is one of my favs because of the open back obviously!

It's all about the hood YO!

 Love the chains and I'm now the proud owner of a set yaayyyyyy:)

Wicked neck line


You know you want a pair, I'm so ordering mine, like now!

I'm not going to go on and on and on because I think the pieces I have picked speak for themselves, it's just totally off the chain. After I had finished trying like everything on:/ Maria did go through the collection with me and explained that her pieces are to represent love eventually conquering all. The confused busy part of the fabric is to reflect struggle and the use of bright colours is to represent breaking through or the light you feel in your life when you are in love or love something. 

Maria Katharina-Richter's the designer

TinkiLove will soon be available online, but if you have anything you would like to ask regarding the collection or pieces you like just drop Maria an email: or check out the website

Nails: BarryM Papaya

Lipstick: Chanel 09 lover

Vintage leather skirt: Bricklane

T-Shirt: Ebay

Fox Fur Scarf: Flea Market in Miami

Bangles: Flea market in Miami

Gold Earrings: Belong to my Mother (hoping she won't ask for them back this time)

Towers: TopShop

The look of love for me all year round is totally a fur and leather mash up clash up. When you invest in quality staples (like fur and leather) you'll find your wardrobe search becomes so much easierrrrrrrr, simple t-shirts and shirts teamed with leather or fur can be transformed from every day basic to super suave.

I love my jumper!

Sweater: Joe Amato, from the flea market in Miami, it was one dollar Yo!

Skirt: Random vintage sale in Stoke Newington 

Hat: TopShop 

Gold Bangles: African Jewellery Stall in Miami 

Shoes: Dune 

Coat: French Connection 

I'm sporting quite a few of the primary colours in my Joe Amato jumper and over sized French Connection coat right now, and even though it's alomost spring temperatures it isn't quite warm enough to leave your hat at home, so this is what I decided on this sultry evening.

 Although I love the over sized, slouchie look and can't get enough of my jumper right now, I feel that you still need to add that feminine touch to your outfit. I teamed my jumper with a little fitted skirt that I found in the bottom of this giant bucket at a vintage event in Stoke Newington this weekend, a pair of pointed towers and then I felt ready to take on the hussle and bussle on a sunset London Eve!

Kiss My Fashion Ass :p
