Here's a round up of what I've been up to lately through the eyes of my Instagram feed. If you're not following me yet you can find me @lafashionfolie

1. I spotted this written on the wall in my sister's apartment block and it reminded me of my favourite Oscar Wilde quote 'To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance'.
2. I invested in my first 'fashion trainers' - a pair of Nike Air Vortex. I bought a discontinued colourway off Ebay, you can shop the latest styles at ASOS

3. To celebrate the new-wave of Italian culture, Peroni took up residency in Portland Place under the name of 'The House of Peroni'. I visited with Neena and enjoyed the fabulous Peroni-extract, peach and passionfruit cocktails (it may sound strange but it was the best cocktail I've supped this year) and modern art in an utterly refined setting. Peroni will be staging a similar pop-up later in the year, I'll notify you when it's back. 
4. Neon art by Ludovica Giosca in The House of Peroni. 

5 & 6. I visited my favourite eaterie of the moment, Seven at Brixton in Brixton Village. If you're London based and you haven't visited Brixton Village for dinner yet - you really must! Seven is a tapas come cocktail bar that serves incredible £5 cocktails (unheard of in London) and fantastic fresh churros with chocolate dipping sauce.

7. I heading to Kensington Palace for the Fashion Rules exhibition that features a curated collection of dresses worn by the royals. My favourite styles were the Hardy Amies and Norman Hartnell dresses worn by the queen (8.) that possessed a fairy tale like quality. 
9 & 10. I headed back to Headmasters in Mayfair for a second hair appointment with Colour Director Siobhan Jones. I am really loving having auburn hair so we didn't alter my style drastically, adding a few more shimmers through the front and cutting in some more layers to add volume. Siobhan's top tip for colouring? 'Ask your stylist to do something slightly different at each colour appointment to keep your look natural. It's when you repeat the same treatment that colour starts to look flat.'

Until the next LFF diary.. Sophie x
