Plaid on Prince

There’s nothing like going out on a cold day and seeing an array of patterns and styles to welcome the changing seasons. While strolling down Prince Street in New York’s Soho neighborhood I found these lovely ladies in their bright plaid. And a special wish for Louise here, who I happened to run into on her birthday.

Pop Up Pics!

Remember we told you about the Not Just A Label Pop Up Store?! Well here are some photos we took at the event at Beach Blanket Babylon, Notting Hill…





BBB‘s 2nd floor ballroom was the perfect location for the shop, providing a beautiful interior for the one-off designer clothes and statement accessories to be displayed. NJAL’s first pop up shop was a great success, meaning that there will be plenty more to come-they are already planning their next location as we speak…

Keep Your Eyes Peeled

Fancy being photographed by world famous London-based photographer Jilian Edelstein? Then why not give yourself the chance to take part in the launch of the new Sony Ericsson Satio handset on Vodaphone, by entering their competition. Edelstein has snapped stars such as Kate Moss, Woody Allen, Helena Bonham Carter, Bill Nighy, Amy Winehouse, Simon Pegg…the list goes on. Now she is embarking on her latest project which we all can be involved in!




To enter the competition, simply head to and upload a photo of your eyes, along with the reason you want to be involved with the campaign. Julian will then be personally selecting 61 successful participants and inviting them to an invitation only Satio studio photoshoot, during the first week of December.

Each lucky participant will have their eyes captured by Jillian and then be published as part of an exclusive online gallery. We’re taking our pics as we speak!

Greetings from New York


New York PostcardHere to bring you the latest in style and culture from across the pond; stay tuned for what New Yorkers are wearing and happenings around town. While browsing in midtown Manhattan this week, girls are taking classic black dresses and adding flares of excitement. I love the oversized floral pin or lace accents, and adorable denim blazers are perfect for those chillier evenings. More from the Big Apple next week!
