Belted Up With Gant: Styling The Braided Belt Trend

 

Last week I was sent a gorgeous belt by under-the-radar fashion retailer Gant courtesy of Betty & Bee. I rarely accesorise with belts either as a functional or decorational piece, but as Betty & Bee said “They’re not the most exciting of garments, but girl we need them! Not only they can add a bit of va-va-voom to an outfit, they can dress up a classic LBD, draw attention to your waist and join separates together”.

Kalopsia Assemble: Scottish Sustianble Textiles Project

On Thursday night, I went along to the launch of Assemble, a new textiles project by Kalopsia; a creative agency based in Leith, Edinburgh. Held at the hipster-central industrial-chic venue of The Biscuit Factory, the event was a relaxed affair with delicious craft beers, and a couple of explanatory and inspiring speeches from the founders thrown in. 

I was intrigued to learn more about the proposed ideas, as Kalopsia’s pop up collective The Facility sits not far from The Scottish Design Exchange where I work, but I never quite understood what the company’s visions were, so Thursday was an interesting and informative experience in a room full of passionate, creative people.

Edinburgh Street Style Shoot with Louise Brown

On a rare sunny Scottish morning, I met up with Louise Brown, graphic designer, blogger (http://www.littlethings.org.uk) and photographer.

We trekked to one of the gorgeous closes and courtyards off the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, and snapped some street style shots. 

Despite a rather bad hair day on my part, and some interruptions from curious tourists, I am thrilled with how they’ve turned out! I can’t wait to do more projects like this in the future.

My shirt is from H&M, Bag and Dress from New Look, Boots from River Island, Trench Coat from Aquascutum and Necklace from Forever 21.
