Five years ago, in a little white Parisian apartment, on a scruffy old Dell laptop, I joined the blogging community. Fast-forward to now, and I’m still here (albeit in a different city, and using a better laptop). I’ll put my hands up and admit, I’ve been a bad blogger in recent times. But a little New Years’ motivation and a dose of inspiration have me back on the blogging wagon. To mark the occasion of Le Stage’s 5th birthday, I’ve compiled a list of my most popular and favourite blog posts.
Style Scrapbook is one of the first style blogs I ever followed (and still follow). I spied Andy leaving the Topshop Unqiue show at the Tate Modern in 2014 and had to take a few snaps. Her sequin leather jacket was very cool.
These are some of my favourite ever travel snaps. Like I’ve written in the blog post, I had previously associated crete with partying and Irish bars. But this trip revealed some of the beautiful places this Greek island has to offer.
Of course there is some London Fashion Week street style in this list. I’ll be honest, approaching strangers to take their photo did not come easily. But it was a worthy challenge. As well as getting a ton of amazing style inspiration, I met some really cool people. And had my photos featured in Stellar.
I’ve been lucky enough to attend a couple of events over the years. A London Christmas Lights Tour with Farfetch was one of the highlights. As well as being driven around the city in an open top bus (on a rainy night), there was also Secret Santa. We were each assigned another blogger and asked to chose a gift from Farfetch. I unwrapped this beautiful cream Michal Kors bag. And styled it with my favourite Topshop knit jumper.
Another outfit. A different hair colour. When it comes to office attire, I keep things pretty simple. Black boots and skinny jeans are my uniform of choice. And you can’t go wrong with a white shirt. And a good coat (I have a coat addiction – if I had less self restraint, my room would be overflowing with them and my bank account would be empty).
One of my favourite cities in the world.
