Company magazine photoshoot; London; Big thanks to Ellen again for taking photos

In case you’re wondering this is not a staged outfit photoshoot, I happen not to have energy or dedication of such sorts stored in me to cough out an idea like that. Actually, I’ve been privileged to be invited by Company magazine to be featured in the upcoming October issue about British fashion bloggers, with a shiny flight ticket so I can haul ass to London for a shoot & interview. It was a bit like that scene in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where fat Augustus pulls out the piece of gold ticket from his chocolate bite, and does the WHUTZEHECK? face. Well mind you, my whutzeheck face was very ladylike, then I proceeded onto a very violent session of packing involving a bit of screaming.

  47. Well congrats on that one! That would be such a good time without a doubt. I’m loving the outfit with the plaid pants and like someone else said, you have fantastic hair. If only I could will and urge mine to grow.

  48. Wow, super sleek layout :)
    And congratulations Darling, you so deserve it, your blog is one of the most fun, stylish, and individual out there. PLUS, you are funny. Love. Alizé xx

  49. Oh, and I loove the wider pictures too. I value visuals most (as you can see from my large one & only picture per story on Blog de Tendances) and I think many bloggers have amazing imagery but do not make the most of the ‘screen space’. Especially with digital & mobile technologies: I mean a medium picture on a 13″ is already small, so on an Iphone screen?! Well done you! xx

    I so agree, we can do so much better with screen real estate with our blogs, and even crap pictures look good big :P I do love how your blog always has a big photo or collage to start off the article, it’s like BAM, it’s gonna be good

  50. I am so happy for you! I can only hope to be as half as successful with blogging one day.

  55. Congratulations on the feature! It actually warms my heart to see bloggers featured in print mags– I wonder if it’s a nod to new media, or the fact that new media ARE becoming the new celebrities… Fascinating times!
