I was fortunate enough to be invited to the River Island Style Studio Valentine’s Blogger Event which gave me the opportunity to finally experience the Style Studio and I’m sure it won’t be my last.

Never heard of the Style Studio?

Well………Style Studio launched in the London and Birmingham flagship shops and offers personal, one-to-one bespoke styling services from retailer’s stylists for a 30 minute, one-hour or two-hour session giving customers the opportunity to find out about the latest trends and collections to, “discover their individual style.”

The Style Studio personal shopper lounge is a large luxurious space with comfy sofas and great lighting and massive fitting rooms, perfect if you wanted to bring your friends to give you the thumbs up on your outfit (Or hands down) there is even a bar in case you work up a thirst during your styling session or you need some liquid courage.

Oh and I have to mention ‘magic mirror’, this baby allows you see yourself in 360 degrees, compare outfit photos or even take selfies that you can upload to your social media or send to someone to get a 2nd opinion on your outfit.

The Valentines event was absolutely lovely I was able to network with loads of amazing bloggers and we were all treated to prosecco cookies and other nibbles yum!

The stylists picked out outfits for each blogger and we all tried on and strutted our stuff in front of the magic mirror we also played some party games none of which I won and talked to the stylists about the collection.

pantone colours how

The secret to wearing Pantone 2016’s colors is to pair items to make up your own combination of the solid tones, rather than trying to find items with both of these shades in it. This does not mean that, you have to find one piece with both of these colors in it, instead try to mix and match items to create the same effect.

Pair with tailored silhouettes and rich textures to counter balance the delicate hues of sugary sweetness. Fabrics like silk make these two tones look really sophisticated.

Rock My Shoes

Have you ever found yourself looking at a pair of shoes, boots or trainers and thought to yourself I’d love those if the bows were a different colour, in a different place or they had some more detail to them, maybe even more bling?

All I Want for Christmas...

Pop princess Rhianna yesterday launched her brand new agency Fr8me with managing partner Benoit Demouy in Los Angeles. The LA based agency’s mission is to style artists for booking commercials, editorial shoots, ad campaigns and red-carpet appearances.

Rihanna spoke “Hair, makeup and styling play an important role in creativity. I am very involved with that part of my process, so this agency was an organic thing for me to do”.

The agency have already lined up Rihanna's makeup artist Mylah Morales, wardrobe stylist Jason Bolden and celebrity hair stylists Patricia Morales and Marcia Hamilton. It is not yet known which other artists will be signed up or which celebrity clients the agency plan to work with, but Rihanna's new business venture is big talk in LA and looks to be a success.
