Yes all three of those things will be taking place in the form of a sample sale this weekend! Well it actually started from Thursday and is on til 1.8.10 which is Sunday by my diary so you've got some time yet my fine friends.

I'm planning to head on down - partly because I love Brick Lane and in my body's relentless mission to get fat I know it will be very satisfied with the foody treats Brick Lane has to offer, partly because I need to build a portfolio to take to my photography interview and as cliche as it is I know I can get me some fast cheap photography in this hot spot of London and mainly because I have a desire to purchase some hip-hop clothing and have nothing else to do this Saturday mid afternoon.

Entry is one GBP! Not bad, non? and features brands Mishka, 10 Deep, Anything & Gourmet, Ice Cream etc with clothes up to 50% off.

East Gallery, 241, Brick Lane, E16 5A

Give it a spin if you fancy. Never know might see you down there.



... Pendragon that is!

IARS the organisation that I am a Research and Policy Intern for invited me to their communication and branding meeting last week and I was rather delighted to be involved in their comms plans. But imagine the further delight to learn our session would be facilitated by Lutherpendragon. Jimminy Christmas! Lutherpendragon are communication consultants who work with names like MTV, British Video Association, John Lewis etc so you knows my excitement was fo' reals.

So on a breezy morning we marched on down to their Priory Court offices ... I like that whole corner of London tucked away on the little religiously named streets behind St. Pauls. I liked the fact they gave us free coca-cola and choccy biccies even more. Our day was hosted by the very 'good at what they do' Stephanie Blott and John Palmer and I learnt a lorra loraa shit! Useful interesting shit though as opposed to useless dull shit like bull's shit.

I learnt about an 'elevator pitch' something I realised the true business minded individual knows about after some blog surfing on Fashion Business Club and sound wording from the talented Mr Imran (check, check, check it out and went away with reams of notes and ideas. I'll be receiving my ePack from Stephanie soon as well so I'm sure I'll have a great deal more delightful things to report back from our friends at Lutherpendragon.

I shall leave you with one of the great lines from our day ...

... "if you are not inspired by what you are doing, how can you inspire others about what you are doing"

Gets inspiring people!



A wee while back (see that little Scottish insert I managed to squeeze into my intro, ay, ay!) well anyways that while back I went to the Christopher Kane sample sale showroom in the beautiful district of Shoreditch on the equally beautiful Redchurch Street. Appropriate moment to reference my first linkage ... and this first is probably in fact certainly going to be a regular linkage on this blog, the even more beautiful Miss Bubble, if you haven't read her blog why the fried egg not? huh? You no want to be in the Style Bubble? non?

Check it out, guaranteed addiction yes? YES! It was blog surfing through Style Bubbe that I came to see the details about this Kanefest of hotness!

So err yes, back to Mr. Kane. I went and broke as I was wanted to buy the vast maj... okay all of what I saw. But what pulled on the fashion coated strings of my heart where the bad boys above ... 275 Queen Notes of watercolor, sheer, chiffon, biker jacket perfection. The right amount of colour to stroke the colour curiosities of even the most devoted black wearer, probably credit to its transparent loveliness and enough depth for us colour obsessives to be happily satisfied. Did someone say genius! I wish I had listened to mumma and kept some savings ... although I'm sure her idea of the type of object the savings should go on include the words, mortgage, first home blah, meh, blah! Not Christopher and Kane like I would splash the imaginary savings on.

Also above is the softest blue and black leather jacket with detachable sleeves (two jackets in one? easily wins any argument relating to why this jacket is a MUST. Taking you from edgy to appropraite eveningwear cover up in one, well actually 4, sweeps of a zip. That genuis word again?!

Also if anyone went how lovely were the show room assistants ... so pweety and helpful and smiley ... highly likely girl crushes possible with those belles.

Well so that was my day at Christopher Kane and as lovely as it was I wish I had walked away with the jackets .. I 'spose pictures will have to suffice until employment and resulting money is gained.

I must confess that, that last post was written today 29.7.10 all I did was delete my style prediction post and replace it with grovelling and general plea for second chance after blog had been left unlovingly un-updated since 27.12.9 - example of bad blogging ways mentioned previously. But then I also noticed I don't evens haves me any followers so really I didn't need to say sorry - hopefully team fried eggs will be changing that soon and if I do have to apologize it will be to a bevvy of followers - oh but to dream.
