HC Trend Love: Statement Necklace

One massive trend that has taken the London streets by storm the past 3 months is Statement Necklaces. With no sign of stopping, (in fact the Highstreet just keeps producing more and more) these eye popping necklaces are here to stay!
Whether you're a chic fashionista, or edgy individual there are so many styles to choose from the possibilities are endless. As you can see, I haven't fallen short with my statement necklace collection, I have one for nearly everyday of the week (and my collection is growing)! The reason I love them personally is because they add an individual look and style to any outfit. Even more so because I wear a lot of black and white, so a statement necklace compliments my wardrobe quite a lot, without over doing it. So take a look at my top 5 Statement necklace styles, how I wear them, and some similar styles that you may like!

HC Fashion Insider: Facebook Page

I've finally 'followed the crowd' and created a facebook page for my blog. I'm really trying to determine the best way to interact with you guys as well as looking at new ways to promote my blog. So if you get a chance check it out, like and share if you'd be so kind.

Do you use facebook to promote your blog? Is it a must or a little self indulgent? I'd love to hear what you think, and any tips and tricks!

The Hierarchy of Fashion Intern Footwear

Fashion Intern Footwear - What should you wear when?!

I noticed whilst interning, that the footwear much like the hierarchy of the fashion world worked upwards; we're talking heel height, designer and style of shoe. Obviously anyone is free to wear pretty much anything on their feet, whatever their role within the company. There aren't any 'written rules' to say otherwise, but the shoes you wear on your feet pretty much display the kind of job role you have; whether practical from the 'run-around' interns in trainers and flats, right up to the fashion editors who wear anything from skyscraper Givenchy heels right through to New Balance trainers.
I have noticed this with my own footwear, how it has developed over my (very short) fashion career, and most obviously how the shoes I wear reflect the jobs I would be doing that day. I have mentioned this briefly in my previous Fashion Intern Advice articles, but this time i'm taking it one step further; showing you what shoes you should wear when. Sounds obvious right? Trust me i've seen plenty of interns shifting heavy suitcases in heels. (Yeah I know what you're thinking, they probably cried themselves to sleep that night!) So here we go my 'Hierarchy of Fashion Intern Footwear'...
