today i want… & other stories scented candles

And Other Stories scented candles


If you happen to be an avid reader of my blog (a girl can dream that there are a few of you, right?) then you'll know two things about me: 1) I'm obsessed with scented candles. I mean, seriously, ain't no problem a scented candle can't fix, if you ask me. 2) & Other Stories is quite possibly my favourite high street store (OK, tied with Whistles). It is certainly the store that looks the most like my ideal home. So the news this week that & Other Stories have launched their own range of scented candles fills me with pure unadulterated joy. There are four in the collection, each inspired by a place in either Paris or Stockholm (the two cities where & Other Stories has ateliers). From Paris choose from 2ème Arondissement, scented with rose, violet and birch wood, or La Cour Jardin, with notes of cardamom, orange blossom and lotus flower. Meanwhile Stockholm's scents are Studion, a blend of bergamot, fig and coconut, and 7:e våningen, with pomegranate, raspberry and cedar wood. Can you guess which two are already on their way to me?

Sorry for the tired look on my face: day 4 of LFW was a bit of a struggle today. I've been shooting street style for the Telegraph the last two days and our photographer very kindly took a shot of me too. Keep an eye out for our street style gallery in the paper on Wednesday and hopefully online soon as well. That's LFW done for me - exhausting but brilliant as always. As ever a million thanks to the lovely Telegraph team for letting me help out!

What I wore to day 1 of LFW yesterday. And yes, I was pretty boiling, but oh my gosh, I'm so in love with this coat. I just couldn't not wear it. It is soft and huge and navy and beautiful. Whistles, you've done it again. I actually got the opportunity to go to Whistles' S/S'15 show today and I absolutely loved it. You know what a huge fan I am of the brand so I was so excited to see the new collection up close. It was, of course, amazing. Check out my Instagram for pictures and a video from the show.

today i love… london fashion week

London Fashion Week

Sorry for the lack of updates lately but they may well continue into next week, because it's time for the fashion circus to arrive: London Fashion Week is once again upon us. Like last season I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to help out the lovely Telegraph team with a little bit of showgoing and street style, so as well as following me on my social media (@annalouelliott on Instagram is probably your best bet), don't forget to follow the Telegraph fashion accounts too (@TeleFashion on Twitter) because I'll be posting a few things there as well. In the meantime, if you're not headed to Somerset House yourself, you can get a better seat than the rest of us without leaving the house. Each season more and more shows are live streamed so you don't even need to get dressed up: just click here. Look out for me at JJS Lee and Eudon Choi tomorrow!

today i love… the monday wish list



I'm really loving midi skirts at the moment; the length definitely feels fresh and they're perfect for this transitional time of year. No big flared girly ones, though: keep things sleek and simple in a neoprene column skirt like this Reiss beauty.

I'm still not over mules, but now I'm loving a closed toe for an autumnal update on the style. These Whistles ones are perfect. If it weren't for the price I would already be prancing around in these babies.

If I didn't already have the perfect shearling jacket (from Whistles), I would be snapping this one up pronto. I love the neat cropped length, the chunky silver zips and just the general shearling amazingness.

H&M's Studio collection has just landed and half of it has sold out already (sadly I was too slow for the amazing outerwear). This mesh bustier is still available though and would look ideal with a high-waisted skirt while the weather still allows.

I'm definitely in the market for a new perfume at the moment, and Tom Ford's are surely the crème de la crème. Velvet Orchid is touted as a more feminine version of Black Orchid, laced with citrus, petals, honey and rum. Yes please.

I've been searching for the perfect ear cuff for months and months, and so far have only been impressed by Ryan Storer's (not cheap) versions. Finally the high street has offered up a viable alternative in this Zara pearl beauty. It's as good as mine already.

H&M leather gilet

Whistles Maddy pool slides

Disclaimer: you might not be seeing any interesting outfits from me for a few days as I'm saving all of my clothes for fashion week. That said, I do think any look is immediately made better by these pool slides. So pleased I snapped them up in the sale.
