Cross Cashmere

Since publishing a book about the rich heritage of cashmere in Scotland, after years of working for a Scottish mill, journalist (and total #girlboss) Lynne McCrossan decided to practise what she preached, and create a capsule collection of the highest quality Scottish cashmere. The collection consists of 6 essential and versatile styles in beautiful knitwear, made for man and woman alike. Here are the shots from an editorial for Cross Cashmere with myself and Paul Keenan (of mens fashion and lifestyle blog thekeenanone.com) modelling for fashion photographer Julie Howden. Let me know what you think, and look out for Cross Cashmere featuring in an upcoming episode of Iluminate for BBC The Social.  (more…)

Outfit styling with Mandi Candi Boutique

 
Mandi Candi is a Dundee-Based boutique providing a huge range of trend-led collections by various independent fashion designers. After discovering Mandi Candi Boutique on Instagram (check out their stylish feed here!) I was keen to collaborate, so together with  creative mastermind Daina Renton (@dainarenton) I styled up some outfits and ventured to the Morningside Wild West, a strange little derelict avenue near my flat where the buildings all resemble an American cowboy town, and shot the three looks, featuring a black pinafore jumpsuit, a suede mini shift dress, black and silver heeled boots and a gorgeous embroidered biker jacket.

From cosy mohair snoods to classic Harris Tweed handbags, quality and integrity outweigh fashion fads for Catherine Aitken.

Blue Hair, Don’t Care


 
So I got my hair did. Its blue. Yep.  I let the team at Austen Thomson Hair experiment on my locks all night long until it transformed into an aqua mermaid fantasy, whilst filming for a halloween hair tutorial. 
With tones of bright cobalt blue, mint green, pastel yellow and baby blue, using Schwarzkopf Professional, it feels totally unique, but sure takes a lot of getting used to after having very pale pink hair! I decided to do a little outfit post showing a classic autumnal look, which really pops against the bright blue ‘do!
 
The striped sweater dress with side splits is from H&M, styled with a grey wool coat from Debenhams, thigh high suede boots from Schuh, watch from Olivia Burton and a Charlie Feist bag (my new favourite minimalist vegan accessories brand!)
