British Style Collective Day 2 Picture Diary

I can't believe it's August and I'm still talking about the British Style Collective! As you might have seen from vmy blog post all about #CarnLIVal, I spent the second day of the British Style Collective split between St George's Hall and Yard & Coop. I even managed to get a picture with Hilary Alexander!

The second day started with me meeting Alex in Costa, we seemed to have a bit of coffee breakfast routine going over this weekend! After being well fuelled with iced frostino and toast we headed over to St George's Hall in time for the first talk. 

Saturday seemed to be the celeb day at the British Style Collective! We started with talks from some incredible women in fashion Jo Elvin, Lisa Snowdon and Caryn Franklin. We then moved onto a talk with Kimberly Walsh who talked us through her career and style since starting in Girls Aloud with a yellow wardrobe to finding her own style as she's progressed through her career. It was amazing to see how some incredible women in fashion have adapted their styles and attitudes to fashion perfectly for each of them. The greatest bit of advice was from Caryn Franklin who advises that she dresses for how she feels that day, whether that be glammed up to the nines or dressed in your scruffiest clothes to get some gardening done.

Jaimie Laing also hosted a talk about his progression from reality tv star and biscuit heir to owning his own sweet company that is known throughout the UK. He set up Candy Kittens back in 2012, a gourmet sweet range that uses natural ingredients to produce gluten-free sweets in five delicious flavours that you can find throughout the UK in your local supermarkets as well as Topshop and Selfridges. I've never really followed Made In Chelsea or Jaimie but his talk on Saturday was really inspiring for anyone that wanted to take their idea and make it into a business/brand and it was actually really inspiring to me as a blogger about taking my blog further and possibly turning it into a brand/business as things progress in the future.

What's your favourite bit of fashion advice?

Speak to you next time!

  1. Wow this sounds and looks so exciting! I love Jaimie Laing from made in chelsea too! - I'm so jealous that you got to hear his talk. I've never tried any sweets from his range though so maybe I should do! xx
