A few weeks ago I went to Fashion's night out, and visited one of my favorite stores, Anthropologie. With a live DJ set and complimentary drinks, we had a wonderful evening browsing all three floors of delights!

My favorite item was the enormous pale wood chandelier resting on the vintage kitchen table. Oh, and the gorgeously intricate lace necklace in the palest of creams! On leaving we were given the latest Autumn catalog full of beautiful inspiring images like the top three pics.

To see more of my in-store pics from the night, see my Flickr set Anthropologie London.

All Saints

Dresses by All Saints
This week for my 'shops i love' page I bring you one of my favorite English clothing brands, All Saints, for a bit of rock'n'roll chic!

All Saints was established in 1994 as a wholesale menswear brand and is known for its edgy forward thinking fashion. The name refers in part to 60’s TV icon Simon Templar - aka The Saint - and in part to All Saints Road in Notting Hill - notorious for its artistic and musical associations, especially its links with the Clash.

In 1997 they launched their womenswear range and have been going strong ever since with their first shop opening in Carnaby Street, England, on All Saint's day in 1997. They now have stores in LA, NY, Miami, Copenhagen, Berlin and Paris to name a few. Noone does the rock chic look better and their leather jackets are worn by Drew Barrymore, Cheryl Cole and Kristen Stewart, amongst others.

On my wish list this Fall is the gorgeously crushed leather brocade detailed leather jacket, cream fair isle scarf with large pom poms, heavily metal-sequined skirt, 1920's style beaded shawl, knee high riding buckle detail boots and the deconstructed cable cardigan with the signature asymmetrical detail.
