Icons, used to high rise glamour and Vogue style airbrushing, have been captured on the humble polaroid by photographer Anna Bauer. Pausing for breath between shows, designers and models alike are caught in moments of serenity in Anna's beautiful new book 'Backstage'. Here are some personal favourites....

The book will be released in October 2011 - anyone else already have it on their wish list?

Hello Autumn

(all images from here)

We're coming to the end of September and Autumn has officially come to say hello. With the nights drawing in and a distinct chill in the air, I always feel Britain somehow sigh's with relief. No longer does it have to flit between hot and rainy- trying to satisfy our summer fantasies, it can relax and do what it does best....be friggin' freezing.

And you know what? That's fine, Britain. I've learnt not fight with you. Besides, this means I can wrap up in my beloved chunky knits, scarves and boots with no shame. I can drink hot chocolate daily and not feel guilty, (well not much) and I can claim every Sunday a 'duvet day'.

So, make yourself comfortable Autumn, I think we'll get along just fine.

Workin' 9 - 5

Hello all- just thought I'd show you where I've been blogging when I've not been here...

It's the blog for the company I work for, Question Air. I would really appreciate it if you guys could take the time to have a peek and even follow if you fancy. Working hard to improve it every day- any constructive criticism welcome :)

Also, speaking of work, I went to London Fashion Week for the first time this season to take some snaps for QA, and I ended up getting papped myself for Stylist.co.uk haha! 

Didn't get the chance to see any shows this time round, but was so cool just to be there and explore the exhibitions!

Does anyone else blog for work? Also who went to Fashion Week?

Outfit : Day One

The first day of a new fashion job calls for some serious panic..... WHAT TO WEAR?! So a couple of months ago when I had my first day, I did some damage control with a bit (ok, a lot) of shopping. I ended up wearing this blue 'Mint Velvet' dress I picked up in the sales with a grey cardigan and black heels. A silver globe necklace from Rock 'n' Rose and a panic stricken facial expression completed my first day look. 

Dress: Mint Velvet
Cardi: New Look
Necklace: Rock 'n' Rose
Shoes: New Look

What did you wear on the first day of your latest job?

say it with a stamp

Have been a little absent from Limbo recently- life has gotten in the way a little! And I'm afraid this week doesn't look much better with work and two gigs to go to.... will be back on top form soon, promise ;)

In the meantime, how cool are these personalised postage stamp pictures?

You do the Math....

For someone that used to struggle with fractions and algebra, I've become incredibly fond of Math. Of course I'm talking about Math Collective- the fashion brand. Basing their collections on deconstructed silk, leather and suede, Math unite modernity and luxury with style.

Simple, clean lines paired with slouchy layers- this collection makes me weak at the knees. And you know what makes it even better? The brand is based in London. Makes me proud to live near one of the greatest fashion capitals in the world. Anyway, enough gushing, here are some of my favourite pieces.....

What do you think?

Any great fashion brands you've discovered lately??

Just a minute.... August


Making: A scrapbook of magazine clippings and personal bits, just to feed my obsession with cutting & pasting.

Watching: 'One Day' (good, but not as good as the book) 'Adventureland' (great sound track) and 'Wilfred' (Elija Wood and a man dressed up as a dog? What's not to love?)

Reading: 'Sputnik Sweetheart' and 'Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World' by Harukai Murakami. One thing I'm loving about my commute- lots of reading time!

Listening: John Smith, Cate le Bon and Ray Lamontagne.

Loving: Having things to look forward to- gigs, a certain dinner, a spa day, etc. Good times :)

Buying: A monthly train ticket, oyster card, bus tickets- I am officially the Queen of public transport.

How was your August?
