Protect Your Handbag with Es-Cubed

I discovered these great handbag protectors on instagram and I thought that I would share them with you all. Es-Cubed (prononuced s cubed) transparent PVC covers protect your favourite handbag from the weather and daily activities. They came in handy when my team and I were out scouting locations for shoots in Sydney. The weather has been pretty shocking here - thankfully I had my lovely Es-Cubed cover.

Es-Cubed was founded by three friends with a love for fashion and handbags. The girls found that the weather and daily activities would frequently dictate their choice of handbag because they were afraid that rain would damage the leather or a crowded subway would scuff the bag. They noticed that there was nothing on the market to protect expensive handbags, without compromising their true beauty. I just love ideas that come from real life scenarios!

Es-Cubed covers come in two sizes - The Stacy (small) and The Madeline (large). The covers are made from quality transparent PVC materials so that they fit on handbags of many sizes. They come in their own little convenient pouch so that you can carry them with you and are prepared for anything life can throw... at your handbag.

The two sizes available on the Es-Cubed website and they are made and packaged exclusively in Toronto.

I've paired my Es-Cubed cover with my Céline bag, a McQ bird print new season knit dress, Burberry Prorsum rainboots and a Shelta clear umbrella. What do you think of my outfit? And would these Es-Cubed covers come in handy to cover your bags? Comment at the end of the post - I love hearing from you all!

Men's Fashion Week Street Looks; Women and Style

What can Men Teach Women About Style?

Layering

Since we're so used to it being so hot in Australia we often forget about the subtle art of layering when it hits winter. Adding a scarf to a look will keep you warm as well as adding a bit of colour and texture. And don't forget that a classic white t-shirt can also add interest too - check out the fringing on this tee below.

Wear Classics

The classic trench is on the basic items everyone should own list. Not only will it keep you dry, you can quickly cover up your gym gear and fashionably step out of the gym.

Add a Belt

Have you got a rectangular torso? Wanting to update a look? Add a belt from the current collections. Not only will it give your body shape; but it is also a cheap way to update a dress you've had in your wardrobe since last season.

Everyone needs a Black Leather Jacket

I have been after a classic black leather moto jacket for a while. I have got a black leather Burberry Prorsum Jacket from about 2004 but I want a moto cut especially since I am going to London Fashion Week in February. I think it will be Burberry again, however the Céline motto is also a favourite. Maybe I could get one in black and one in dark blue? The handsome chap below has played with lengths when he got dressed. Full length jeans, an untucked shirt which means the shirt hangs long and the open black leather moto jacket on top.

When you are Cold Wear a Jumper!

This one is pretty self-explanatory however it seems that women would rather freeze so they look good than cover up most of the time. For goodness sake - just wear a jumper. Jumpers have been huge lately so there is no excuse for going cold. AND since Sports Luxe is still in you can wear it front row if you please. Now where did I put my New Balance?

Put a Hat on!

I am pretty sure I have said this before dozens of times. Since I live in Australia I slip slop slap. I always cover up with a hat and sunglasses and carry an umbrella around to shade me from the hot Australian sun. Those of you that have been to Oz in summer will know that in 10 minutes you can get burnt to a crisp here. I also use tinted SPF moisturiser which means I not only look nicer in hardly any time but I am covered again so I don't get skin cancer. Those of you that live where the sun is less hot should still organise yourself and become sun smart. AND hats are just extra fun accessories that not many people use. They finish an outfit off so you look polished.

The Edit

Welcome to one of the outfits I will taking to London Fashion Week courtesy of the January sales in Sydney. It was actually really strange shopping for the cooler weather I will experience in London during the heatwave we had here. The weather we then had while shooting this post was even more strange. First it was cooler, then it started sprinkling, the rain got harder (which forced us to change location) and then the sun came out when we were at our new location! I could only handle a few shots after that because it got really steamy!

I really enjoyed shooting over Christmas as there were less people out. Many places were shut too which meant I had more choices for locations.

My new Celine sunglasses are very comfortable. They were a great ebay find. The Scanlan Theodore jumper and black skirt were bought on sale in David Jones They're still having great sales at the moment too. I am thinking of going back to grab some more warm jumpers and maybe a beanie & scarf. I am still looking for the perfect blue bag to take with me too. Come to think of it - I also got my spiked platform Louboutin sandals at David Jones on sale too!

I have my eye on some thigh high boots to wear with this outfit to make it more London weather friendly. I am also thinking I might need some tights to keep me warm under this layered skirt. It's great when you can take an item of clothing such as this and make a summer and winter outfit with it. Classic and interesting black skirts are very versatile. This jumper will last a few seasons too. Stripes are always in.

私はシドニーでの1月の売上高のロンドンファッションウィークの礼儀に取ることになる衣装の1へようこそ。それは、私たちがここに持っていた熱波の間にロンドンで経験する涼しい天候のために実際に本当に奇妙なショッピングでした。このポストを撮影すると、さらに多くの奇妙であった天候が、我々はそれから持っていた。まずそれはそれは散水開始、涼しかった、雨が難しくなった(場所を変更を余儀なくされた)、私たちは私たちの新しい場所にいたときに太陽が出てきた!それは本当に蒸し暑い得たので私は、その後いくつかのショットを扱うことができる!

より少ない人々をそこにあったように私は本当にクリスマスにわたって撮影楽しんだ。多くの場所は、私が場所のより多くの選択肢を持っていた意味したあまりにも閉鎖された。

私の新しいセリーヌのサングラスは非常に快適です。彼らは偉大なeBayの検索でした。スキャンランセオドアジャンパーと黒のスカート彼らはまだあまりにも現時点では大きな売上を抱えているデビッド·ジョーンズでの販売で買った。私はいくつかのより暖かいジャンパー、多分ビーニー&スカーフをつかむために戻って行こうと考えています。私はまだあまりにも私と一緒に取るために完璧な青色の袋を探しています。そういえば - 私はまた、売却にデビッド·ジョーンズで私のスパイクされたプラットフォームルブタンサンダルをあまりにも持って!

私はいくつかの腿の高いブーツで私の目はそれがよりロンドン天気フレンドリーにするためにこの服を着用する必要があります。また、私はこのレイヤードスカートの下に暖かい私を保つためにいくつかのタイツが必要な場合があります考えています。あなたはこのような衣類のアイテムを取ると、それに夏と冬の服を作ることができるときには素晴らしいことだ。クラシックと面白い黒のスカートは非常に汎用性があります。このジャンパは、あまりにも数シーズンを続く。ストライプは常にである。

あなたはシドニーでこの場所を認識していますか?何をしてこのスキャンランセオドアジャンパーとスカートをペアリングしているでしょうか?記事の最後にコメント - 私はあなたから聞いて大好き!

Burberry Prorsum London Collections: Men 2015

Burberry Prorsum Menswear Autumn/Winter 2015

The first thing I noted when watching the Burberry Prorsum Menswear Autumn/Winter 2015 show that was held during the London Collections: Men was the lack of light that came through the tent at Kensington Gardens. Which was only fitting really since an Autumn Winter show is a bit more serious. An Autumn Winter show is not supposed to convey that light and airy feeling you get when watching Spring Summer shows.

Christopher Bailey presented a very Classically Bohemian collection which he described as light and free with floral prints, tailoring and fringe details using corduroy, linen, quilted cotton and shearling. The models wore very serious looking glasses, paisley shirts, fringed ponchos and fringed bags. I loved the leopard coats (photo 4) and bags (photo 5) that went down the runway however my favourite items of the show had to be the coats, jackets, bags and pants with Rajasthani mirror work (photo 8 - mirror scarf). It was almost like the models had just stepped off a plane from India.

Another thing to note was Bailey's use of the Pantone Colour of 2015. There were many items created in Marsala - you can see one such look in photo 6 below. There were the classic silhouettes of the usual Burberry trenches however these were broken up by some really interesting shapes. The drop crotch/balloon pants that you can see in photo 1 and the cocoon bomber jacket shown in photo 7 are new takes on items that have previously walked down Burberry runways. I have my eye on that cocoon bomber for my husband actually!

I love the bright blue shearling jacket that you can see in photo 3 - it cut through the sombre colour palette that was the theme of this show. My favourite part of the whole runway experience was the statement Rajasthani mirror coat Bailey finished with (photo 10). It was a great glittering end and was the perfect partner for the glittery finale. You need to watch the show video (below) to really see the coat's beauty. The music during the runway spectacular was performed by Clare Maguire. She opened the Burberry Prorsum Menswear Autumn/Winter 2015 runway show with Marc Bolan's Cosmic Dancer and she sung a wonderful cover of House of the Rising Sun while the glitter storm finale raged.

Which is your favourite piece of the show? Comment at the end of the post - I love hearing from you all.

 

ロンドンコレクションの間に開催されたバーバリープローサムメンズウェア秋/冬2015年ショーを見ているときに私が述べた最初のもの:男性はケンジントンガーデンズの10トンを経由して来た光の欠如だった。どのだけ秋冬ショー以来、本当にフィットしたことは少しより深刻である。秋の冬のショーは春夏のショーを見ているときに取得された光と風通しの良い気持ちを伝えるために想定されていない。

クリストファー·ベイリーは、彼が光やコーデュロイ、リネン、キルト綿、ムートンを使用して花柄、仕立てとフリンジの詳細を自由として記述非常に古典的にボヘミアンコレクションを発表。モデルは非常に深刻な見てメガネ、ペイズリーシャツ、縁取られたポンチョと房飾りのバッグを身に着けていた。私はヒョウのコート(写真4)やバッグを愛した(写真5)ショーの私のお気に入りのアイテムはラージャスタンミラー仕事とのコート、ジャケット、バッグ、パンツ(写真8 - ミラースカーフ)をしなければならなかったが、滑走路を下って行ったという。それは、モデルはちょうどインドから飛行機を降りていたほとんどのようだった。

注意すべきもう一つは、マルサラで作成された多くの項目があった2015年のパントンカラーのベイリーの使用だった - あなたは下の写真6で1等の外観を見ることができます。これらはいくつかの本当に面白い形によって分かれていたが通常のバーバリーのトレンチの古典的なシルエットがあった。あなたは写真1、写真7に示す繭ボンバージャケットで見ることができるドロップ股/バルーンパンツは新しいが以前にバーバリーの滑走路を歩いてきたアイテムを取るです。私は実際に私の夫のために、その繭の爆撃機に私の目を持っている!

それがこの番組のテーマだった陰鬱なカラーパレットを切断 - 私はあなたの写真3で見ることができる明るい青色ムートンジャケットが大好きです。全体の滑走路での経験の私のお気に入りの部分は、ベイリーが(写真10)で仕上げ文のラージャスタンミラーコートだった。それは偉大なきらびやかな終わりだったとキラキラフィナーレのための完璧なパートナーでした。あなたは本当にコートの美しさを見て(下)ショーのビデオを見てする必要があります。壮大な滑走路中の音楽はクレア·マグワイアによって行った。彼女はマーク·ボランのコズミック·ダンサーとバーバリープローサムメンズウェア秋/冬2015ファッションショーを開き、グリッター嵐のフィナーレは激怒している間、彼女は朝日のあたる家の素晴らしいカバーを歌った。

ショーのお気に入りの作品はどれですか?記事の最後にコメント - 私はあなたのすべてから聞いて大好きです。
