Last Saturday was the much-anticipated OffBeat Live Shoreditch Fashion Show 2013 (in association with Made in Shoreditch magazine & Vivid Fashion Group) and we RF girls were absolutely obnoxious with excitement. The event was held in an airy warehouse, which was decorated with amazing fashion-inspired works of art; we were particularly charmed by a Romeo + Juliet piece and a Dom and Ink top-knot illustration! Several musicians took to the stage, including our favorite of the night, Brixton-made band The Thirst  (who we suspect could seriously whip our arses at Guitar Hero). Attendees were dressed in their finest quirky pieces -- we noticed that statement necklaces featured heavily on girls and boys(!) and it really was wonderful gaining inspiration from fellow fashion-obsessed individuals and chatting with up-and-coming designers, artists and bloggers. 

In our next post, coming later this week, we will be featuring the fabulous ladies we met and after that it will be all about the boys. Stay tuned!

High Heels Get Low

Low Heels Trend
1. YSL Ingenue Pumps (similar here) 2. Zara Studded Slingback 3. J.Crew Janey Patent Flats 4. Jeffrey Campbell Affair Sandal 5. Zara Metallic Sandals 6. Clarks Sharna Balcony Shoe

We Remotely Fashion females have a love-hate relationship with most heels. We love how heels make our legs more unicorn-like, because we are trying in vain to look like human-versions of The Last Unicorn. On the other hand, we are admittedly clumsy, clutzy and easily lost (meaning we end up walking way more than we planned). Fortunately the fashion gods have smized upon us and low heels were a runway regular for Spring 2013 (Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent, and Nicholas Kirkwood, to name a few).

But I needed to see my patron saint Alexa Chung rocking her YSL Ingenue pumps in order to quell my trepidation. We think the key to keeping this style from going matronly is to look for dainty ankle straps as well as futuristic colors and textures. Metallics aren't just for F/W, we think silver or rose gold would pair perfectly with a pastel-colored outfit. Basic black is also sure to look very classy and feminine and would look lovely with a bodycon midi-dress or a pair of tailored trousers. From the window to the wall, we are about to get low! How about you?

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice-cream

Reluctant to anger Thor and the gang, the following comes with our fingers tightly crossed and a piece of wood very much to hand. But just on the off chance that the change in weather isn't a red herring, and spring truly has sprung, here is a wishlist of lactose free ice-creams shades.

School Spirit!

Anou's outfit: T-shirt - Crooks & Castle, Letterman Jacket - 10 Deep, Maroon Trousers - Topman, Shoes - Cole Haan LunarGrand Wingtip, Watch - Nixon Timeteller 

Before going out on a windy, rainy night, I realized that Anou and I had a 'theme' going on. With his Letterman jacket and my pleated skirt and blazer we had some sort of Public vs. Private school mash-up going on. Raindrops seem to have invaded our photography but the weather was remarkably warmer today. Very excited to don some more springy styles shortly!

The Lion, The Witch and The (print filled) Wardrobe

Neither of us can remember climbing into the wardrobe, or pushing past the furs into Narnia, yet in a perpetual winter we find ourselves. It's not that we don't appreciate it being the perfect weather for browsing bookshops* in our new prints, painting nails and skyping with far-flung friends, but where the devil are you Aslan?!

*Apparently you can judge a book by its cover.

Moon Rock n' Roll

Miriam's Outfit: Blouse - Korean Boutique, Jeggings - H&M, Necklace - Gift (from Ebay)
Siobhan's Outfit: Dress - Forever 21, Earrings - & Other Stories, Chambray Shirt - Forever 21

After learning of the glow-in-the-dark qualities of a local bowling alley, we neon-loving ladies had to assemble our most cosmic ensembles for a night of fun! We bowled two sets with our friends, who very graciously allowed us to snap pictures between rolls. Miriam nearly got the top score in the first set, which I contribute to the luckiness of her galaxy rabbit bowling shirt. Unfortunately, the moon rock earrings I borrowed from Miriam weren't a good luck charm for my bowling abilities, but they sure looked great under the black light!

Think Pink

Once again, as we find ourselves lost, we look to Grease 2 for our salvation. Taking the pledge* and a colour favoured by our 5 year-old selves we have picked out our favourite pieces, which somehow manage to avoid looking infantile. Because, you know, adult baby is a pretty difficult look to pull off.

*"The Pink Ladies' pledge is to act cool, to look cool, and to be cool. 'Til death do us part, think pink."
