The New Basics

March 22, 2015

Lately, I have been on a bit of a minimalism kick. This has primarily sprouted from moving from England to the USA and having most of my stuff in shipment limbo for a couple months. I was pretty devastated that my favorite boyfriend shirt was not at my sartorial beck and call but aside from that I've enjoyed analyzing what are my fashion necessities. This outfit is a demonstration of what I consider a part of my new fashion basics.
However, what makes these photos definitely not basic is the photographic skill of Erika Pham, who shot these photos with me in San Francisco. These photos have been long in the works, as she was one of the first cheerleaders of my interest in fashion blogging back in our Tokyo days. RF readers can look forward to seeing more of her work on the blog as we are now living in the same city once again. Definitely have a look at her own photography blog and I must add she is very fashionable in her own right! 

Happy New Year

March 20, 2015

Despite claiming to abhor the hippie-dippy nonsense that the 70's trend tends to evoke, we find ourselves here at RF HQ – you know that spatial plane floating somewhere between London and San Francisco where all Lil’ Wayne and unicorn communication happens – thinking about the Spring Equinox. Don’t be alarmed, you’re unlikely to find either of us prancing around a forest getting in touch with nature, we still have more than enough shade to throw. However, call us crazy, you won’t be the first (Brandon and Jennie, we’re looking at you two), but for us the New Year begins not on the first of January as everyone would have you believe, but on the first day of Spring. Wait! Hear us out, if Spring’s mascots of lambs, chicks and flowers aren't living metaphors for new beginnings, then we don’t know what is.
The advent of Spring feels like a much more sound time of year to make New Years resolutions. At least there is a glimmer of hope that you will actually keep them. But more important than fixing bad habits, Spring is the time for trying new things, both generally and sartorially.


With no intention of trying bungee jumping or anything like that, here are the some of the Spring trends that we are going to sink our teeth into:

Flares (the cropped ones if we can get our grubby mitts on them)
Seen at Celine and Calvin Klein 


We love these cropped flares from Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Zara

Map My Style

March 12, 2015

We L O V E love Dom&Ink and you know what, we make no apologies for it. It’s entirely reasonable, the man is awesome. Now, given his generous nature and just general unicorn type spirit, we have for some time referred to him as our own fairy godfather. What we did not know was how incredibly accurate that was! From affairs of the heart, he has now moved onto far more serious matters, those of style; putting his fashion know how to good use. Using the timeworn method of colouring in and the art of collage, he encourages readers to discover and embrace their personal style. Full of positive messages about individuality and body confidence, Map My Style at times makes one feel as though Dom is a modern day George, riding in to slay the Dragons that beset us as ladies.

Bart Simpson - A Style Icon

March 9, 2015

When chatting to a dear friend about the type of boys that I tend to be drawn to, he scoffed, “You basically want to date Bart Simpson” and in all honesty, there are few qualities a man can posses that are as attractive as skateboarding skills. Hang kindness, the ability to provide and chivalry; give me a boy with a longboard any time. Anyway, unpalatable as my preferences may be, it has come to light that this fascination with Bart Simpson goes waaaay deeper, from affairs of the heart to affairs of my wardrobe. Perhaps it’s an attempt to recapture my youth in a way which does not involve a jar of cream with wild claims about anti-aging, who knows?  But for some reason I have found myself dressing more and more like Bart.

What Color Is This Dress?

March 3, 2015

Can someone please tell me the color of this dress? I see a black dress with gold accessories, but my friend says it a white dress with blue accessories. Please help us end the debate!  

OKAY, just joking, dear readers! Were you following #TheDress phenomenon last week? Maybe that's why I was on the hunt for a dress this past weekend. I found this sweet little Alexa-Chungian number that I feel in love with instantly. It's pretty much Spring in the Bay, so legs are on show without tights. Remembering that Miriam and I were bustled up in coats last March, makes my mind implode a little.
