Goodbye, Winter by celeste

Color is definitely in store for the upcoming months, ergo this brilliant photo from the Pam Hogg Catwalk Show in London! Keep your eyes peeled not only for the photos from the London, Paris, and New York Fashion weeks, but also for the highly anticipated and quickly approaching St Andrews fashion events Continue reading

Today saw the successful opening of the new Fish Deli and Restaurant on Market street. I had their fish and chips take out and it was really good – better than the other places in town and it may even be a challenge to the place in Anstruther! I didn’t manage to get any snaps, but be sure to check it out! It has a take out at the front, a deli where you can get some pretty good-looking lobster and other fresh fish, and a sit down restaurant at the back. Let us know what you think…

The headache from Saturday evening has finally subsided and the memories have slowly started to piece themselves back together of what was an amazing night! Hosted at Kinkell the KK get no points for originality, but this year’s ball was definitely a blast! This year I opted for a dinner ticket, which at first seemed ridiculously over priced, but on the night was worth it. Arriving early to a champagne reception and queue-less rides with only a hundred or so other guests was a massive perk, however standing around in the cold for a very long time before we were seated wasn’t so great! Once we got seated, warmed up and sufficiently fed and watered the atmosphere in the marquee was rowdy but with a St Andrews twist!And dare I say it…lots of banter!

Later on the rest of the guests arrived and the venue filled up with people enjoying their drinks tokens and the fairground rides letting loose before exams and celebrating the end of the year in style. The drinks system went down a treat and people seemed to be having lots of fun despite “The One Under” bar running out of cocktails mid-way. The music in the VIP tent was kicked off by our very own Dan Matthews, followed by some home-grown talent; Bring back the Planes. In the main arena I noticed a rather cocky indie band with the cliché hair and silly lyrics, but they served their purpose, warming up the room to make space for some more St Andrews showcasing – John Galvin. He threw down some crowd pleasing tunes accompanied by a Jazz band similar to that seen at the Bongo Ball and Masquerade.

Aside from this everyone looked great, guys donning tuxes and kilts and girls looking beautiful in all sorts of styles and summer colours. This was all let down a little however when at the end there was no sign of the traditional survivors breakfast and even worse no busses to get us out of Kinkell at four in the morning – but the KK kept us accommodated in the VIP tent and eventually everyone got home…I think…

All in all a great night, worth every penny for a good cause!

Bloggers Continue to Take Over the Fashion World by Sara

Earlier this year Colin McDowell wrote an article titled Fashion Blogging: The Rape of the Innocents, about the Fashion Industry doing to these young fashion enthusiasts what the Movie Industry did to young stars of the 30’s. Personally I feel a little weird critiquing young fashion bloggers, because, well that is exactly what I am doing right now, but the article has some really interesting and good points about the whole era of the ‘fashion blogger’. I mean WWD just announced that bloggers will be able to nominate and vote in this year’s CFDA Fashion Awards, talk about praise and power. Well I guess the question here is, will fashion bloggers become just a phase – left in the dust by the rest of the fashion world, or will they make their mark permanent? Only time will tell (sorry I couldn’t resist the cheesy last line)!
