Rianna Phillips || #JUSTSAYIN

The autumn season is officially upon on us! Time to pull out the winter boots from the back of the wardrobe, leather biker jackets on and let's layer those chunky knits!
I'm all for 'winter pink' this year and am using the trend as a way to bring pops of colour into my wintery coloured wardrobe. The #JUSTSAYIN clutch bag from the new AW15-16 collection has just the right amount of cheeky pink and makes an outfit that little bit more fun :-) And did I mention the detachable cross body chain strap situation?! A selection of the new clutch bags have them, check them out here:

Jeans // Topshop

Inspiration || W Magazine

Modern muse Fernanda Ly killin it with her luscious pink hair. 
Since she walked at Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2015 ready-to-wear show in Paris I've been convinced this girl is one to watch.

Designers Directory || Vista rooftop bar at The Trafalgar

It's always handy to know where a good rooftop bar is on a sunny day in London, we stopped for drinks and snacks at Vista. A beautiful venue that overlooks Trafalgar square whilst also showcasing the perfect London skyline backdrop. As me and Kate agree, the whole rooftop was 'so Papable!'.
Luscious green vines grow to form arches that lead through into private little dining areas and wooden boxes of sweet smelling flowers decorated the pathways. THAT VIEW! what else is there to say? Get a table booked next time your in London town.

Faded Threads X Rianna Phillips

We are loving this street style by fashion and lifestyle blogger Mallory Morris all the way over in Cincinnati <3
She wears the Cash Only printed portfolio clutch with detachable cross body chain strap. The print is inspired by iconic and famous fonts seen on the brands and labels we know and love - with an added Rianna Phillips hand drawn stencil style :-)

Design Boards || Say What collection

I've never got out of the habit of creating design boards for each print collection I produce. The process that was taught to me during university will be forever stamped on my brain! And I'd have it no other way :-) 
Here are the boards behind the new AW2015-16 collection 'Say What'. The collection took about 3 months to piece together, it was an immediate response to the social media bubble I seem to be engrossed in on a daily basis. Fashion bloggers continue to inspire me with their innovative streetstyle, however tumblr seems to be a new source of inspiration that I have unexpectedly become heavily influenced (and fascinated) by. 
People all around the world 'reblog' images that help them create a lifestyle they aspire to, or sometimes wish they had. Proverbs and phrases become daily motivational pieces of artwork that help us all get through the day! It's a new global lifestyle that seems to be going hand in hand with fashion and personally . . . I love it!
