Caped Crusader

September 17, 2014

As we have observed before, fashion can be a cruel mistress, but once in a while a trend comes along which makes you feel oh so very grateful and thus the Stockholm Syndrome continues. So it is with the cape trend this Autumn; perhaps the only piece of clothing to make you feel at once cosy and a bit like a superhero.

London Fashion Weekend - Competition Time!

September 16, 2014


We tried to get Alison Hammond off of This Morning to introduce the competition but she's terribly busy with her Strictly schedule, so here goes...London Fashion Weekend is fast approaching and we have two tickets to give away for the Marchesa Notte show this Saturday. Cue collective "Ooooh"

Notte is the little sister label of London born design house Marchesa, which returned home to LFW this season marking its 10th anniversary with a delicate, floral collection, which had us wishing we were nymphs so we could scamper around the forest in their beautifully ethereal frocks.

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

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.
