I’ve decided this
weekend I would stop shopping and indulge in a little culture. So I trotted
down to the Saatchi Gallery to check out Chanel’s exhibition “The Little Black
Karl’s photographs are
breathtakingly beautiful. Somehow being shot in black and white added to their
beauty and made even the odder constructions look classic. From a nunned up
Freya to a Clémence Poésy in an Indian headdress.
Guess who? You'll never guess.....its Carine Roitfeld
A smile? And a Hermes bag in a Chanel shot? It could only be the fabulous Jane Birkin.
Favorite pic? Anna
Wintour!!! Who else could be shot from behind and still be instantly
Best of all? They give
you a free Poster of a print to take home. Hopefully this isn’t the closest
Runway Girly will get to owning a Chanel jacket….but it’s a step.

Hi all. So sorry for
my hiatus. Runway Girly has been in a period of transition. Its all change,
location, occupation…….even wardrobe…which has meant less time to devote to
blogging. Apologies all round.
But I assure you I am
back and I will be sharing more fashion, style, clothes then ever before. I’ll
be blog straight from the heart of chic-ness, LONDON!
Last weekend I
discovered an AMAZING VINTAGE FASHION & ACCESSORIES FAIR in Hammersmith. Truly
gorgeous gems on display. From 1950’s Dior necklaces to 70’s Lanvin its all
there. Lets just say Rachel Zoe would have loved it.
Anyone else sensing a real snake-y trend in jewellery?
This piece puts the statement in the term statement necklace.
Rachel Zoe's neck is missing from the above photo.
How gorg are these? Exactly what my ears are missing.
I couldn’t leave
without buying something so I invested in this statement chain necklace. While
it is no designer I would label it stunning and one of a kind.
If you fancy checking
it out the fair is monthly and the next one is on November 11th at
the Hammersmith Town Hall. Check it out here www.pa-antiques.co.uk
Always on the look out Runway Girly has discovered the wondrous
This brand has some serious cache. Created by Ryan Lobo,(former
stylist at Pagesdigital) and Ramon Martin, (THE former Design Director at Derek
TOME is all about a
utilitarian style that is balance through its use of luxe fabrics and richness
of tone. Think Celine with a hint of Chloe.
TOME is an attitude, a way of thinking/dressing. The TOME woman is confident to wear paired down tailored looks that whisper....rather than scream fashion.
LOVE this execution of minimalism, above. The mix of crisp shirting with leather is the perfect balance of vixen... (dare I say fetishism, a nod to the black leather daytime looks of A/W'12 seen at Balmain, Alexander Wang and the usually girly Erdem)....and the demure.
Examples of a previous collection.
Have to admire the demure tailoring here.
The practically backless first dress? Insanely brilliant. Spot the hint of lace to add femininity to an otherwise geometric gown. GENUIS GENUIS GENUIS
