All the latest Fashion & Style News from Lulu Williams.
I MEGA love these shoes. It feels like I am bouncing along in my slippers and I love the extra height. The Adidas Superstar Rize is a flatform version of the classic Adidas Superstar trainer. I prefer it to the original style as it’s an updated look and gives me an inch or two extra in height.
“My Favourite Red Lippy.” Perfect for the festive season. Lulu Williams – Red Lipstick – Blogger Review.
A pop of colour on the lip is always a good idea through the festive season. Whether you’re scoffing sufganiyot at a Hunnakah party, or sipping champagne at a Christmas bash, do it with a slick of red lippy.
I have tried lots of red lipsticks this year, and I have finally discovered my favourite – Read My Lips by Teeez Cosmetics. I found MAC to be drying, Rimmel to fade too quickly and Barry M to smudge too easily. Read My Lips by Teeez Cosmetics is easy to apply as it has a sharp curved edged. I applied it at 8am and by lunchtime – 1 snack and 3 cups of tea later – it is still in full swing.

Do you like gin? I do.
Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace in Walthamstow is one to visit when you fancy a glass of something delish.
I had a plum brandy, which tasted like – what I imagine – fairies drink. It was delicately sweet, with just the right amount of fruitiness. What also made me fall in love with it was the colour – a very gentle plum pink. Divine!
Next door to Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace in Walthamstow is God’s Own Junkyard.
God’s Own Junkyard is a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon browsing. There is now a cafe called The Rolling Scones at the back of it too, so you can refuel once taking in all the fab light art. God’s Own Junkyard is filled with vintage neon signs and art. Chris Bracey’s family still produces neon art.
Visit what we call “Tiny House” on Wood Street in Wathamstow
I dont actually know if it’s someones house or a lock-up or what, however it’s a small scale “Tiny House” which is awesome for a spur of the moment photo, comme ça…
Markus Lupfer SS16 Spring Summer 2016 at London Fashion Week LFW September 2015. Catwalk/Runway Show at Horse Guards Avenue. Fashion Blogger.
The emperor of attention to detail, Markus Lupfer did not disappoint when it came to venue, props and decoration at his spring / summer 2016 collection show at London Fashion Week. Inspired by a Mexican desert, Lupfer filled the room with lone standing flowers. Simple, yet hugely effective. The collection was compiled of beautiful shift dresses, bomber jackets and stunning separates; with dominant monochrome colour-ways. Floral designs on the textiles complimented the room’s temporary design. I throughly enjoyed the lucha libre – mexican wrestlers embellished on the clothes. There is always something unusual in Markus Lupfer’s collections that makes me smile.
J. JS Lee SS16 Spring Summer 2016 Collection at London Fashion Week 2016. Brewer Street Car Park. Lulu Williams Friday Favourite.
There is no surprise that this is the most beautiful pattern cutting I’ve seen at London Fashion Week 2016 so far, as J. JS Lee worked as a senior pattern cutter for 7 years prior to launching her own label. Jackie Lee’s SS16 collection was a true delight to observe and a beautiful way to start London Fashion Week 2016. As a “blogger” I enjoy writing more about style than what’s hot, and true to my word J . JS Lee’s 2016 Spring Summer collection was immensely stylish. High-fashion drapery, free-flowing textiles and beautiful cuts complimented dresses, pinafores and contemporary feminine light-weight suits. The colour palette was candy striped pastels and then bold contrasting monochrome with an echoing theme of beautiful printed birds; creating the ethos of “the bird’s flight to freedom”. This collection was timeless and filled with rejuvenated energy. This collection is absolutely my favourite so far.
Susnyara “Kardia” Spring Summer 2016 SS16 “Creating New Urban Legends” at New York Fashion Week. Designed by Nina Susnjara. Lulu Williams favourite collection of NYFW.
Susnyara’s SS16 collection “Kardia” blew me away at New York Fashion Week. The collection itself is a romantic palette of pastel shades with a whisper of bronze. Unpredictable cuts and stunning drapery lends the feminine collection a hint of delightful chaos. Just enough to understand the inspiration of urban streets and modern day street fashion that play as ingredients behind these dreamy designs. Nina Susnjara designs with the contemporary woman’s figure in mind, making her collection wearable but at the same incredibly special.
Susnyara is definitely one to watch.
As well as being a record collector I am a collector of vintage clothing; starting at the 1940s up to 1980s. I am not a huge fan of the 90s as it screams Topshop/student at me. It seems like yesterday that I was going to New Look in Hammersmith to buy cargo trousers, butterfly hair clips, belly chains and a crop top emblazoned with “Bad Attitude”. It’s too soon to bring it back in a stylish way.
I don’t care about your Moschino belt and no I don’t want to buy this season’s ironic combat trousers. Maybe in 20 years I will embrace the 90s but for now I am thrilled that the 1970s is back.
What decade are you embracing this season?
