Recently I had the pleasure of catching up with the lovely duo behind box boutique and having a snoop around their new and sparkling pop up store in the heart of Chelsea. Within seconds I fell in love with 2 pairs of shoes, 5 bags and 2 jackets.. oh yes and 1 picture!!
What do you do and why do you love your job?
We are the founders of The Box Boutique – complete heaven for shoe lovers and all things new, exclusive and beautiful. We also recently opened a slightly quirkier version of it in form of a pop-up concept store in the heart of trendy Chelsea! There on top of a great variety of shoes and accessories you can also find everything from magic wand star-shaped salt and pepper shakers and Cold Pressed Juices to fierce Minimale Animale bikinis and cool ADYN casual wear. You can also have your Friday make-up there done now! What is not to love?! :) We get to go to fashion shows, be surrounded by gorgeous pieces day in day out, organize fashion events and got a great opportunity to establish ourselves in this big world of Fashion.

Today, my dear stalkers is the last post of the feature 'Today I'm Wearing' by Pandora Sykes, the talented and very stylish fashion editor. Over the past week we've seen this little lady in some of her favourite wardrobe items, from leopard spots to vintage Levi's, I have to admit I have developed quite a style crush on this little lady!!
The final day.... Pandora what are you wearing?

This has to be a close runner up for one of my favourite examples of styling by Pandora Sykes, fashion editor of TheDebrief.com, on this week/bank holiday feature. Leopard is one of those trends that prowls into the room pretty much every season, we all own at least one piece of it and we all equally love it. I'm a massive fan of how Pandora's styled it with a vintage sports tee and equally vintage slides, which she bought before they were announced by every fashion trend to be 'this summer's must have item'!
Today Pandora, what are you wearing?
What are you wearing today? Shakuhachi skirt, Adidas slides, Le Specs Macarena sunglasses and H&M Men's polo shirt

Pandora has written for UK publications such as The Times, Spectator Life, Company, YOU, Metro and is now fashion editor of The Debrief.com (a must read website, if you don't already)! From today I will be stalking Miss Sykes to find out what this stylish lady wears on a daily basis, but firstly... The interview!
What do you do and why do you love your job?
I am a fashion and features journalist and blogger. I love writing and anything visual and media-orientated so it's a good fit for me.

So we sailed up to the sun
Till we found the sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine
Yellow, the colour of all things happy and furiously on trend, but not always the easiest colour to wear! So with a little guidance from a few fashionistas I've snapped along the way, here are a few of my favourite ways to wear yellow!
THE FULL MONTY - Yellow on Yellow! -Yes it does work!

There are 2 reasons why food and fashion were separated at birth, numbero 1 they both start with the same letter, numbero 2 they are both as fabulous as each other. This is the exact reason I love interviewing food experts as much as I do fashion, therefore, let me introduce the awesome owner of Sam's Brasserie in Chiswick and Harrisons in Balham, Sam Harrison. All I can say.. best eggs in town! I met Sam a while ago at a foodie event at Number 10, which an old friend and talented blogger The Londoner and I popped along to. See what we got up to here.
What do you do and what's the biggest kick you get doing your job?
I own and run Sam's Brasserie & Bar in Chiswick and Harrison's in Balham. I love working with a great team and striving every day to deliver the best possible levels of customer service and food every day. Restaurants is a bit like theatre……..we do 2 performances daily! Well in fact we do 3 as we are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner

I met Vanessa on the street near Somerset House, looking as stylish as she normally does on her fabulous blog Fashion Loverette. I'm currently obsessed with white on white styling so could not let this lovely lady walk past without stalking her!

If you haven't already heard the exciting news of J Crews latest UK venture, then I strongly suggest you read on.... As I type J Crew are embarking on a store opening to top all store openings, in the old location of Link of London in Sloane Square. They have acquired this 4,500 square-foot unit and have erected the most awesome vertical 'living' garden on the exterior of the building, designed to attract and promote pollination. Jenna Lyons, J Crew's president and executive creative director was inspired to partner up with Buglife, after seeing a documentary about our dying Bee population. This subject is incredibly close to my heart as well, my mother and I are known as the worker bees in our family, so anything with a bee on it I tend to get very excited!!!

Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing an industry sweetheart, with a career CV to beat all CVs!! From her first company (a babysitting agency, age 10) to her first haunt/adventure as an international model (Tokyo, age 14) fashion industry insider, expert, entrepreneur and broadcaster Noelle has built up extensive knowledge and experience within fashion and media. Noelle founded a diffusion brand with Zandra Rhodes, OBE, marking the first time the icon designer has taken a partnership in her 45 year career. Noelle’s success has allowed her the freedom to pursue passions such as writing, blogging, and public speaking. She contributes regularly to a variety of publications including Mail on Sunday, VV, The Gent, acts as the celebrity blogger for Britain’s leading department store House of Fraser, and speaks publicly for the likes of the British Fashion Council.
What are you working on now and why do you love what you're doing?
My whole life – from the time I could understand basic things about life – has been about following my dreams. That’s a very difficult path – or at least for me it meant sacrifices, digging deep within yourself a lot, and dealing against high odds. This year, I feel I’m on course with my dream and it’s a deeply satisfying feeling. I get to be creative, be around creatives, and have the nice “wrapping paper” as I call it! Meaning the superficial benefits.

Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my favourite fashion bloggers, the lovely Wendy Gilmore; the brains and beauty behind the blog Thank Fifi. The blog is a personal style blog with a twist, not only do we get to pour over her wonderful style but she also includes her gorgeous dog, Fi, in every picture, check her out here and see why I'm raving about her!!!
What do you do and what do you love about your job?
By day I am PR and Marketing Manager for bluebellgray, a Scottish interiors brand. It's always busy and always so full of colour. The studio we work in and the girls I work work with are a constant source of inspiration - no matter what I wear to work nothing is off limits!
