How To Dress For Party Season, Without Looking “Party Season”

As winter creeps in, it’s time to wholeheartedly embrace glamour. Wrap up in plush velvets and cosy furs, show off in metallic finishes and sequinned gowns. Once you’ve bedeck yourself in feathers, drag your ensemble into 2018, with matte leathers, sharp suiting and whiter than white boots. Natasha Zinko, Velvet Bow Mules, £600, Browns Fashion […]

Spring Style Inspiration: Denim, Silk & Sportswear

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’ve been finding it very difficult to decide what my first dip back into the pond would be. I knew I wanted to create a GTL, but I couldn’t quite decide what to cover. My current style obsessions are: Denim (- it’s actually getting quite worrying how […]

Monday Blues? The Dior AW17 Show will give you that much-needed boost

We already know that Maria Grazia Chiuri, wants us all to ‘be Feminists’, but for her AW17 collection; instead of emblazoning this message across instagrammable t-shirts, this was cleverly sown into the fabric of her seemingly sombre – and all blue -collection. Her message could be felt in the black panther inspired leather berets, the small […]

All I Want for Chinese New Year is…

I’ve  always liked Chinese New Year. As well as being a fan of hong bao and the treats that lay within them, I love that each year has it’s own personality. Distinguished by animals, CNY brings more meaning to the new year than it just being ‘a new year.’ No ‘New Year New You’ malarkey here. CNY is […]

2017: An Ode to Optimism

After a rocky 2016, it seems we are all committed to making 2017 a year of hope, togetherness and possibility. If 2016 was the apocalypse, then 2017 is the year we dust ourselves off, walk through the rubble and saunter off into the sunset. For SS17 it was surely no surprise then, that designers looked to […]

Blush Styles – Rocks and Ripped Jeans

I resisted the temptation of ripped jeans for quite some time and rather stupidly waited until September to buy them, so this is a short style piece on how to try and make ripped jeans work for Autumn Winter. Two other looks I loved that I haven’t had a chance to shoot yet are… fishnets […]

Get the Look – Trans-seasonal Trenches and Dusters

I can’t count the number of times I’ve received compliments on my trench coat. Perhaps it’s because, it is not a trench in the traditional sense of the word, but more of a utilitarian duster. It billows in the wind, has handy zipper pockets and is a seasonless graphite. Over the last couple of weeks, […]

From Zoolander’s pout to Scarlett O’Hara’s velvet curtain dress, motion picture has long provided us with iconic style moments. Costume designers fill audiences with the urge to emulate the complex, flawed and painfully stylish protagonists of the silver screen.

Get the Look – Ballerina Style

What woman hasn’t felt the pull of ballet at some stage in her life? The music, the stage, the exquisite combination of femininity and strength; all pulled together with pretty French names, blush pinks and feathery layers of tulle. I first watched Swan Lake on Easter Sunday when I was five or six. High on […]

Blush Guide to Patches, Pins & Personalisation

Denim, leather and satin outerwear are back and this time, they’re personal.

Heading to Bangkok? Blush writer Josie makes the case for Chiang Mai. After the oppressive heat and frenzied pace of Bangkok, a trip north to Chiang Mai is like a salve for the soul.

“I Work Out.” Blush Styles – Activewear

I’ve recently moved to Chelsea, which is all very lovely, but it does come with its disadvantages. One of them being that whenever you tell anyone where you live they raise their eyebrows and say ‘ooh that’s posh!’ In a kind of weird judgey way, or call you a rich c u next Tuesday, which […]

Whatever your opinion, her greatness is undeniable. She’s a legend: for fashion […]

After summers of bum-cheek flashing and seventies throwbacks, this spring designers have come over all romantic.

Straight Outta Brick Lane. Blush Styles: Streetwear

The line between streetwear and sportswear is so fine, it’s a dot. I’ve always dabbled in both. As I made the move from awkward tomboy in baggy nike tracksuit bottoms and Adidas poppers, to trying to be a girl in skintight, cropped Abercrombie vest tops and JW trackies. At Uni I went through the denim mini […]

It’s that time of year when at some point you will have to leave the house, brave the cold and remember how to walk in heels. Party season has a tendency to put the sartorial fear into the best of us, opening the floodgates for the many many questions we will have up to the moment […]

Cosy, cropped, or cashmere – it’s time to perfect your knitwear game.  I’ve been struggling to find that perfect knit for weeks now and had resigned myself to lugging myself and my faux fur around London thanks to several unsuccess shopping trips; anyone who’s been on the tube in a fur know this isn’t easy, or […]

My favourite season is upon us and I have to say I’m rather happy to see my 15 deniers again. Autumn/Winter, for me is the time you can have the most fun with your style. My Autumn style tends to be a twist on old classics. Silk blouses, skinny jeans and fur coats never fail […]

With a month left of sun it’s time to pull out all the stops.

Those high-waisted skinnies, can wait another month. I’m yet to actually purchase a jumpsuit; I […]

Ok so it’s actually boiling outside, but let’s be honest it’s not going to last.

Rather, my unquenchable thirst for […]

I’ve noticed a lot of reflector sunnies making the rounds of late: on the new supers at Coachella, the plethora of pool parties that come with living in LA,  and many a London rooftop rave. […]

Blush’s Favourite Fashion & Beauty Looks from 2014

2014 has been a crazy year. In the beauty world we got to grips with make-up again after seasons of fuss free hair and make-up barely there.

This summer, on his annual trip from HK to London, my dad tried to convince me that the eighties were making a comeback.  As we cruised down the motorway blaring his favourite 80s jams, and his compilation CD (how very retro!) played on, I had to admit (to myself, because it’s never wise to admit […]

Ever since I saw last winter’s Celine ads, I have been desperate for a pair of over the knee boots.

Anyway, after a good fortnight of ferocious […]
