    This week the team were in sunny Paris, out and about soaking up the sun (where possible!) at press days, viewing the AW15 collections post the September shows, and the opening of The Ivy Chelsea Garden in London.

    Monday was an early start with a day trip to Paris to meet with the chic French brands and discuss their AW15 collections and plans. Chloé, Maje and Zadig & Voltaire were top of our list, and we always get excited when we walk into the Chloé headquarters. Chloé Girl Crush!

    Tuesday was packed with more AW15 press previews, and this gorgeous denim number, from See by Chloé, caught our eye at event: hitting the website soon.
    We also popped into the star-studded launch of The Ivy Chelsea Garden in London. An old American bar and grill turned into a chic restaurant with the largest garden in town. We rubbed shoulders with James Blunt, the Made in Chelsea gang and even Cara Delevingne’s dad! Get on the waiting list for a table this summer…
    On Wednesday we did an early-morning spin class at our favourite Psycle London spin boutique in central London. Best trainer around, A.D., got us going for the full day ahead. Come and spin with us at
    At the Frame Denim preview we got a sneak peek at Karlie Kloss’s ‘Forever Karlie’ AW15 extra-long jean collection, designed for girls with longer legs (they really are long, lucky girl!) We loved the gorgeous yet simple flower displays at the press day, getting ideas for our fashion brides.
    On Friday we closed the week with a date at Chanel to see its new AW15 collection. We fell in love with this jewellery box. Who wouldn’t?!
    That’s all for this week, have a great weekend!
