What we loved in August 2014 – Roundup post

What we loved in August 2014 – Roundup post

The big fashion news in August was, of course, the Emmys. Always a veritable smorgasbord of style, this year was no exception. The usual subjective fashion highs and lows, things that float one fashion writer’s boat might leave another cold. We loved one of the controversial ones – Lena Dunham in a strange but wonderful Giambattista Valli creation…

And the incredibly talented Uzo Aduba who plays Crazy Eyes in womens’ prison drama Orange Is The New Black, who looked unbelievably glamorous in this red gown that no one seems to know who designed!

We liked The Guardian‘s Emmys fashion picks!

One of our favourite British fashion bloggers is Carrie from Wish Wish Wish. It’s impossible to pick a post in August (or any month) that we loved most, but this post about Clarice Price Thomas is lovely.

Back on the subject of crazy, Vogue’s piece on Erin O’Connor’s most famous McQueen show, the literally insane designs in his spring/summer 2001 Voss show, which was set in an asylum. O’Connor wore a dress made entirely of razor clam shells, which she ripped off at the end. Beautiful and haunting.

While it certainly wasn’t something we loved, we were very moved by the deaths of Robin Williams and especially Lauren Bacall this month. Bacall’s elegance and husky voice will be sorely missed. And no one wore a pearl necklace so well!

Victoria’s Secret model and all-American beuty Karlie Kloss was announced as the new face of Chanel.

Last but not least, another homegrown blogger extraordinare, Olivia from What Olivia Did posted this month about one of our very favourite London Hotels, Citizen M. They, like us, offer afforable luxury, and Bankside’s boutique hotel is no exception. Love this hot chocolate image… after all, autumn is coming!
