Meet Caroline. Chic, undeniably beautiful and definitely a girl we wanna be. We persuaded our favourite ‘non-blogger’ to shed some Parisian insight into her world. A peek at her fedorable accessory picks comes highly recommended… We’re now frantically googling Maison Michel.

.

1. If I were a dessert I’d be… Bellagio’s tempting white and black chocolate fountain where chocolate connoisseurs dip cherries, berries and all exotic fruits.

.

2. Favourite city for shopping? Fashion is my world, Paris is it’s capital and my hometown.

.

3. Favourite store? Wherever I could get a pinch of Acné, a hint of Wang and a red touch of YSL.

.

4. Fine dining or fast food? Any venue that flatters my eyes, my palate and my imagination…

.

5. What can’t you live without? My iPhone with every breath I take and a drop of Tiffany’s perfume.

.

6. Last thing you bought? Acné sweaters vest and boots.

.

7. Tell us a secret? Well if I told you a secret, it will become big news…

.

8. Designer you covet? Fashion is a whim and an ever-changing world bringing together the old and the new: the all inclusive spectrum goes from Chanel, Dior and YSL to Wang, Lim and McQueen.

.

9. Your next season purchase will be? Oh… Temptation is at any corner of every street luring me towards a Celine trapeze bag, a pair of YSL waders… or a Chanel mini boy.

.

10. Describe yourself? An anal retentive, inquisitive, positive mind with an accute inkling for managing daily happenings in harmony and with a sense of humor.

Meet Ashley. Super beautiful and fun, she has that ‘awesome styling/awesome personality’ thing down to a T. We’ve long been fans of her witty blog and her uber cool instagram, add to that her cleverly curated fashion emporium and well, she just turned into #agirlwewannabe. If you do one thing today (after giggling your way through this interview – trust us you will) click here and have a nosey at her insanely good edit of luxe stuff.

.

1.  Ashley, (fill in the blanks) If I were a shoe….  I’d be a 5″ Alaia gold printed sandal.  (with a super comfy custom shoe insert of course)​.
.
2. Favourite shopping city?  Soho, NYC= the best shopping in the world.  There’s nothing, or no one, one can’t find there-even the smallest, cult-iest undercover Japanese designers​.
​.
3. Picnic or posh nosh?  Posh nosh all the way.  I’m from the south…I’ve done my fair share of picnics, ants and all.
.
4. Pin stripe or Plaid?  ​Lately, I’m all about plaid- Two years ago I scored these plaid shirts with giant white numbers on the back and I’m still obsessed with them.  However, I used to work for Ralph Lauren, so I have had plenty of pin striped moments.​
.
5. Best thing about Winter?  Giant oversized knits. ​​So walk-of-shame sexy.
.
6. And the worst?  The worst thing about winter is when I underestimate how cold I will be, and in the name of fashion, show up to an event without the proper outerwear/shoes and end up Les Mis for the duration (this happens frequently).​
.
7. Your happy place?  A super exclusive 60% off secret sale at Barney’s that no one has heard of but me (never happens).  But really, a coffee in hand, a beautiful day, heading to one of my favorite NYC boutiques-What Goes Around Comes Around (vintage); Kirna Zabete or IF.​
.
8. Favourite trend for the season?  I know I’m probably alone in this, but I am loving the return of socks. I love them with every type of shoe and am always envious when someone pulls off a good goofy sock with a stunning heel. ​
.
9. Designer you’re coveting?  I​​’m most excited about Cédric Charlier and wanted every single piece in his fall collection.​  Especially the midi metallic silver silk pleated skirt, which I missed out on.  Heartbreak-I hate when that happens.
 .

10. Describe the season in five words…  Modern retro ​sexy tomboy chic. That paints a picture, right?

Nathalie’s been on our radar for sometime now. @woahstyledotcom is her instagram account which we defy you not to fall in love with. Couple that with her beautiful look-book blog and it’s a bookmark worthy edit we happily admit to stalking. It’s rare to find a fashion instagram conveying so much personality and all the while curating a seemingly minimalist aesthetic. Instagold as we like to call it. We pestered Nathalie into sharing some secrets and her serious appreciation for a good pant. Leather. Who knew?

.

1. Nathalie, (fill in the blanks) If I were a colour I’d be…. Cobalt blue! It has so much personality and can convey so much emotion – happy and moody, fun and dark!

.

2. Takeaway or tasting platter? Tasting platter. I like to savour my food and savour life!

 .

3. Favourite place to shop? ONLINE! That’s where the magic is! Ssense, The Free Island, The Outnet, Zara, if there’s an online shop for it, then I’m there!

.

4. Shop solo, or with a friend? If I’m not online shopping then I’m shopping with my BFF. We’ve mastered it to a science. We do our own thing and come together to ask for each other’s opinion. Afterwards we treat ourselves to a delicious meal!

 .

5. Best thing about winter? Looking forward to spring fashions!!!! LOL. But seriously, the abundance of textures – leather, faux furs, velvet, metals, denim. More is more when it comes to winter fashion.

 .

6. And the worst? The bitter cold! Parka’s and snow boots are not sexy!

 .

7. Favourite piece in your closet? My Mackage leather pants. They literally go with everything and make me feel like a rock star without trying.

 .

8. Tell us a secret? As hard as I try I’m messy by nature. My shoes are scattered all over my house!

 .

9. Designer you’re coveting? Chanel. Always and forever.

 .

10. Describe yourself in 5 words? Fashionable, shoe obsessed, nature lover!

A chance encounter/Instagram stalk is how we found Pam. Then we quickly skipped to her website which, just like her iG, is visually one of the most inviting accounts we’ve found. Pam was gracious enough to answer our questions and generally be as gorgeous over email as in her photos. The pictures are taken from one of Pam’s recent outfit shoots and you can shop/see more of her look by clicking to her website here.

.

1. Pam, (fill in the blanks) If I were a cocktail I’d be… A mojito!
.
2. Picnic or posh meal out? Posh meal out. It’s the perfect excuse to get dolled up.
 .
3. Treadmill or San Francisco hill? Treadmill. I’m not a fan of the SF hills. 🙂
.
4. Share a shopping secret? Always start with the sale section of a store (including online) you never know when you can stumble on a great friend for half of the amount you were planning to spend. On the contrary, if you want to buy the latest in fashion, shop on Wednesdays or Thursdays, those are the days that new merchandise comes into the majority of the stores. I learned that from a friend that works in retail.
 .
5. Best thing about Fall? The fashion!
 .
6. And the worst? It’s a reminder that Winter is right around the corner.
.
7. Currently reading? I know I’m a little bit late on this one, but the biography of Steve Jobs.
.
8. Favorite trend for F/W14? Pastels.
 .
9. Designer you’re coveting? Balmain. I just saw his Spring 2015 Paris show online and I’m dying. I saw lots of beautiful jumpsuits. So dreamy!
 .

10. Describe yourself in 5 words? Loyal, humble, smart, generous and fashionable. 🙂

We persuaded committed Londoner Glenda to shoot street stalker on location in the sleepy village of Hurstpierpoint. Before the shoot, we headed to Lustig & Webb Salon de Coiffeur where Glenda got the Bugatti of blow-drys and the giggles during our Q&A.

We defy anyone not to fall in love with her chic style and super warm wit.

.

1. Glenda, (fill in the blanks) If I could wake up anywhere it would be….Vegas, I love Vegas. Selfridges Shoe Galleries comes a close second!

2. Favourite time of year? Summer, as who doesn’t love the sunshine but also winter as I prefer the clothes. So a sunny winters day is perfect.

3. Takeaway or tasting platter? I’m a big foodie so tasting platter to fuel my foodie-ness and takeaway to fuel any hangover.

4. Best thing about London? Everything, to quote Samuel Johnson “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.” (apart from the tubes in summer. Sans AC no bueno!)

5. And the worst? See number 4.

6. Favourite piece in your closet? I don’t have one, is that bad?  I have a lot of pieces that I like but nothing that stands out as a fave. I’m sticking with the “Sophie’s choice” answer. I just can’t choose.

7. Tell us a secret? If I tell you I would have to kill you so no comment.

8. Favourite trends for A/W14? Suede knee high boots and big blanket coats.

9. Designer you’re coveting? OSMAN great British designer. S/S15 was incredible. Beautiful shapes and colours. If you are reading this Osman then I would like to have the backless blue and white jumpsuit please!  Merci.

10. Describe your style in 5 words… Luxeonomy at its very best.

Meet Italian born Londoner Nicole. We caught up with her in Notting hill and fell quickly in love with her infectious personality and deadpan wit.
.
Here, Nicole talks prints, pointy loafers and the omnipresent Philo factor…
.
.
1.  Nicole, (fill in the blanks) If I were a shoe…. I’d be an Adidas Stan Smith because if you wear it with a black dress it seems so out of place and yet I find it so perfect.
.
2. Favourite city? London for the fashion, Amsterdam for the vibe, Italy for the friendly atmosphere …and the food! During summer we visited Siena. I loved the medieval cityscape and hearing the stories of the Palio told by the restaurant owner while having dinner. There is history behind every corner and people love to share stories. You don’t get that in London!
.
3. Picnic or posh nosh? Posh nosh, but I’ll surprise you when I show up wearing trainers!
.
4. Leopard or Python print? I am an animal print lover! Lately I’ve been wearing more leopard print but maybe I would choose the python …I find it more sophisticated.
.
5. Best thing about Winter? Leather and coats!
.
6. And the worst? Too cold to sit outside in restaurants.
.
7. Your best fashion memory? I should say when I purchased my first designer bag!! But instead, it was meeting other fashion bloggers, who I now call great friends! I love sharing my passion with them … plus they’re the coolest girls ever!
.
8. Favourite trend for A/W14? Let me see ..where to begin?! I usually love to try new trends and incorporate them into a wearable outfit. I take my influence from the catwalk. This has always been my thing. For this season, I will definitely go for robe coats and a lot of knitwear, top to bottom. I’ll be wearing a lot of loafers and as always white trainers. Midi skirts with oversized jumpers and a lots of denim and animal prints.
.
9. Designer you’re coveting? Phoebe Philo – In Stan smith and a turtle neck. Totally inspiring, effortless and cool!
.

10. Describe the season in five words… Knitted Everything, Oversized, Turtle Necks, Pointy Loafers, Robe coats.
