Style Update: Camo and Culottes

posted on: Friday, 12 April 2019

Long live camo and culottes. I'm pretty sure my wardrobe would feel empty without these two, as I have about a dozen variations on both, yet this is the first time I've styled the two together. It seems like the most natural combination, so what took me so long? Well, I got there in the end and now you might get sick of seeing my highlight this combo for spring.

FFG Eats: Pachamama East

I remember being asked if I've ever had Peruvian food, for the first time in New York City last year. I'll be honest and admit that Peru wasn't a place I held up on the culinary charts, but I was most definitely told I should rate it highly. I had never had Peruvian food, never thought of it at all, in fact. But, my first visit to Pachamama, in London, completely changed my opinion on Peru and all her glorious food. It was like discovering a long lost love. The combination of fresh ingredients, the use of fish in the most unique and genius ways and the way in which everything was so beautifully presented at Pachamama, truly made me fall in love at first bite. So, when they opened their newest restaurant, in Shoreditch, you have to bet I wanted to be one of the first people through the door.

Style Update: Shoulders out, ladies!

Can we talk a second about dresses with pockets? There have been times that I've bought dresses just because they have pockets. They are usually the deciding factor. So why aren't more designers incorporating them into their designs? And when retailers do include pockets in their designs, why aren't they shouting about it? I'm pretty sure it's all we talk about when it comes to the best bits of certain pieces. Pockets are essential. They're not just there for functionality either. There's a flattery that comes with having pockets on a garment. It's almost a safety feature. If you have a place to put your hands, you walk with confidence. Am I wrong?

So there's something really important you need to know about me: I'm a cowgirl. No really. In my heart of hearts, I was born in the wrong place. I was meant to be born into a family of ranchers out west where every morning we saddle up and head out onto the plains, wrangling cattle as we go. The world works in funny ways. I wasn't born into that at all, as a matter of fact, and my living in London is hardly a CV builder for a future in cattle ranching. So instead, I go crazy for any sort of reference to the American west in fashion. It's part of the reason I'm obsessed with Ralph Lauren, and always will be - because of his very obsession for this way of life and this part of the world.
