Red Alert

August 8, 2014

Scarlett Women at Sacai, Meadham Kirchhoff and Valentino respectively.

Hate to be the harbinger of doom, but bad news is on the horizon, unholy red has been declared the colour of this upcoming season. While red lipstick and nails are A-okay - just ask Dot Cotton -red clothes make me feel, well, just a little bit funny. They either evoke images of Kat Slater, or, somehow make me feel as though I have a carnation tucked behind my ear. 
There's something altogether too noticeable about red, which is why it's the perfect colour for things that you need to either spot or dodge, like post boxes or double decker buses. But when fashion says "jump", we can but ask, "how high?" and with that, here is our selection of the least lady of the night red things. The general rule of thumb seems to be to keep things conservative, with a little c of course. 

This & Other Stories  clutch is ideal for gingerly dipping a toe in the trend.
 Ladylike pleats and a high neck mean that this red Zara dress is perfectly prim and proper.
In our dreams we wear this preposterously beautiful Simone Rocha skirt.

Late Summer Monochrome

Late Summer Monochrome
Summertime is supposed to be all about bright, fantastic colors but all I can think about are black, white and a little of what's in between.

Lovebox: Street Style

July 31, 2014

A couple of Fridays ago, RF was sent on a fashion finding mission,with the official RF Barbie Doll, on behalf of Ticketmaster, to Lovebox festival. After a couple of Aperol Spritzes, accompanied by the smooth sound of Craig Charles on the decks, we went off to stare at That Pretty Motherf*cker A$AP Rocky and then, eventually, made our way into crowd to snap some snaps, most of the pictures are over on the Ticketmaster site, but here are the best of the rest...

So we know that this chap technically isn't wearing a lot, but what he is wearing is monochrome and that is awesome.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

July 28, 2014

It's a common TV trope -- two girls walk into the room wearing the same outfit and shock and embarrassment ensue. But we RF girls love to bask in the glory of unwittingly twinning. Sure, raised eyebrows flow from passers by, but for us, it is a badge of honor as true fashion BFFs and also an exercise in our psychic powers.  Easy, lightweight denim was obviously on our minds, but so were our lime green FYT & Co backpacks. We have a bit of a rucksack obsession  at the moment, not only because it allows us to swing our arms freely as we frolic through parks in the English summer heat, but also because they help ease the weight of our packrat tendencies, while simultaneously making us look and feel like cold-blooded super heroes. 

Tales of the Unexpected

July 23, 2014

Usually when summer trends are announced, there is a collective sigh of "again", as floral and brights, fail to feel exciting. But this season it was different, as fabrics not typically associated with summer made our hearts stir - leather, fur and sweatshirt fabric joined forces with the hitherto forbidden combination of socks and sandals in a most unexpected summer outfit.

Flamingo Sweatshirt - H&M
Dinosaur Ring - H&M
Mint Green Fuzzy Clutch - ASOS
White Leather Dindrl - Zara
Sparkly Socks - ASOS
White Flatforms - c/o Missguided

Motel Rocks: Flowerpuff Girls

July 20, 2014

When we lived in Japan, we found ourselves intrigued by the pack mentality of the girls when it came to fashion. Their approach to clothes was more Musketeers than Spice Girls, very much, "All For One And One For All" and you would never see a group of girls wearing styles from different trends. We developed nicknames for the tribes - there was he Tree Dwelling Group, who were bedecked entirely in muslin of varying shades of brown and beige. The Trashy Hondoori Girls, black and neon pink with visible suspender belts and shoes more akin to stilts, was their uniform of choice. Not to mention the Pastel Princesses, who set off every outfit with a prim and proper cardigan and pearl jewellery. Suffice to say, we grew rather fond of the tribes and so when Motel Rocks very kindly sent us a pair of matching dresses, we channeled our inner Harajuku girls and tribed up to form the Flowerpuff Girls!
