Metallics - Not Just For Christmas

This is an urgent appeal.

As the first leaves of Autumn begin to fall, the first tatt of Christmas similarly makes its descent into the nation's shops. But amongst the chaos of reindeer antler hairbands and Christmas Pudding earrings you may also notice an array of metallic. Every year these beautiful shiny clothes are worn once or twice around the festive season and then discarded. Left to languish at the bottom of countless wardrobes across the world they are cold, lonely and at the mercy of moths.  Well we for two are not going to stand for it anymore! J Crew's Jenna Lyons famously elevated leopard print to the status of a neutral and we believe that metallics fall into the same category, with just a little bit of thought, these neglected garments can be rehabilitated and appreciated for the useful members of sartorial society that they are. Add a spangly shoe at the end of some ripped jeans, throw on a chunky knit or cosy sweatshirt with your sparkly skirt, or even take what would be an uber casual sweatshirt and make it silver. Here is our selection of stupendously shiny things that  are versatile enough to work into your everyday wardrobe. Silver skirt in Sainos, why the devil not?

Remember, sequins are for life, not just for your shitty Christmas party.

Last month, I went an lovely girls trip to Amsterdam where we shopped til we dropped and ate so many crepes we nearly exploded in happiness. The weekend was consistently sunny with a mild breeze that had just the slightest hint of Autumn, but mostly Summer which was perfect for strolling down the streets with cup o' frites in hand. I hope I'll visit this gorgeous city again!

My lovely friend humored my fashion blogging tendencies and took my OOTD shots for the weekend, so thank you Holly Bailey! Her family clearly has the photography gene in their DNA, because her sister Chloe is a great photographer as well. Check her out!

Jimmy Choo Townhouse - A Shoetopia

It had been impossible to not notice that the end of the world as we knew it was nigh (how else to explain the existence of Robin Thicke and his peculiar brand of rapey pop? ) but the event itself appears to have passed us by, perhaps we got distracted by something shiny. However the apocalypse came to pass, a couple of Sundays ago we RF girls found ourselves in a brave new world, in a veritable shoetopia!

221 New Bond Street has been converted into the first ever Jimmy Choo Townhouse and we went along to have a poke around. Set over three floors, all the shoes in there have been created equal, skater shoes and tough ankle boots, sit happily alongside the elegant heels, which have become synonymous with the brand.
We guzzled champs, played in the photo booth, got our nails did and generally drooled at all of the lovely shoes on show.

Shoe-shaped biscuits and beautiful scarves...
...Here are a few of our favourite skins!
We sound our spirit bags...
Then, in true RF fashion, found the flattest shoes in the shop - we like to fall for our shoes, not off them. 

Pure narcissism - it's a kind of sickness really.
