Classic Chanel

October 15, 2015

Classic Chanel

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous

This year marks the revolutionary Chanel shoulder bag’s 60th anniversary, and it is just as popular now, if not more than it was in 1955.

I think I speak on behalf of billions of fashion-obsessed girls when I say a classic Chanel flap bag is something you aspire to own from birth. The bags are timeless, elegant and ooze high fashion glamour.

A classic Chanel bag is one of those must have items, like Louboutin heels or a Burberry trench.

 

‘I NEED this bag in my life’

 

Here are 10 reasons as to why you should own a Chanel flap bag.

  1. Chanel regularly increases it’s prices so the bags tend to hold their value well for years. This means that buying one now isn’t too risky and can be considered an investment.
  2. You can always sell the bag and recoup most, if not all of your money.
  3. Owning one makes you feel like you are in an exclusive elite.
  4. The flap bag has ‘inspired’ so many designers to date. If you are going to buy one, you might as well get the original.
  5. The Chanel flap bag in caviar leather will last a lifetime.
  6. The bags are still price-prohibitive so not everyone will be able to own one.
  7. The Chanel Boy Bag was a game changer
  8. There is a wait list for Chanel bags which no one speaks of.
  9. There are so many Vintage Chanel bags still available on the market because they never go out of fashion.
  10. It is Chanel!

LCF fashion Show 15 Designer: Edda Grimes

July 15, 2015

London College of Fashion (LCF) Fashion Show 15

Here are a few behind the scenes shots of me modelling for Edda Grimes at the LCF Fashion Show 11/07/15

Text taken from: http://1ndependent15.co.uk/designers/womenswear/trompe-loeil-reborn/

Edda Gimnes’s illustrated monochromatic outfits, proved a punchy statement as models transformed into real life 3D fashion illustrations by manifesting a hand drawn 2D effect that surely left us wanting for more.

Using mainly a white canvas as the backdrop to her approach, thick black ‘pen lines’ stood out for all the right reasons amongst the overlooking crowd.

The work felt almost surreal as models who resembled moving imagery caught your eye at halt, details such as gloves, headwear and eyewear were all incorporated within the dress and suit designs.

This was my ‘first look’ of the day and I thoroughly enjoyed rocking this awesome outfit. I felt like a 3D re-vamped Audrey Hepburn. I thought the accessories i.e. hats, sunnies and gloves were a fab finishing statement and completed the look perfectly.

Cosmopolitan Summer Party

July 2, 2015

Cosmopolitan hosted an awesome Summer Party on 13th June

So my adventures have taken me many places but never the Cosmopolitan Summer party!

There was live music from Kiss FM’s DJ, Neev, a never ending que for the BBQ, yummy wheyhey ice-cream, candyfloos, drinks from Emmi CHOCO LAIT and fabulous Zubrowka cocktails and Gancia prosecco.

Wheyhey provided a scrumptious selection of protein ice cream! Yes PROTEIN ice cream AND with ZERO sugar! Ahhhhmazing. Wheyhey use a natural sweetener called Xylitol in all their flavours which is great for health and fitness fanatics such as myself. Each pot provides 20grams of protein and you can choose from a range of flavours such as; Banoffee, Strawberry, Vanilla and Chocolate. Wheyhey use a natural sweetener called Xylitol in all their flavours.

Throughout the day there were live shows on stage and depending on what you fancied you were able to pop between the three rooms inside and head outside whenever you pleased.

There were Gandy’s flip flops and Freya swimwear which were showcasing their latest collection.

A few well known beauty brands were amongst the party such as Soft & Gentle,  Veet, Rimmel, Lee Stafford and Seekers of The Sun.

I managed to get my hands on an awesome bag of goodies from Lee Stafford. I particularly love the shine spray when I am feeling a slick and straight do and sea salt spray for my hair when I’m channeling my inner beach babe; effortless tousled waves.

Once the party was over you were able to grab a free goodie bag bursting with freebies! Well that was music to my ears!

Helping Hands

June 24, 2015

Helping Hands

Every day at Victoria station, whether its on my way to work, the gym, lunch etc I pass at least 5 homeless people. I always carry food with me; 1) Because I am always hungry… and most importantly; 2) To make sure I can give it to someone who needs it more than I.

Today I have been going around the station dropping off food packages to every homeless person possible. As my current office

and place of day to day work is located very close to an organisation named ‘The Passage’, which is on St Vincent’s Centre, Carlisle Place, London. I have decided to donate to this organisation. ‘The Passage’ runs London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for homeless and vulnerable people: each day they help up to 200 men and women. 

The 40-bed hostel, Passage House, was officially opened on 1 March 2000. In the year 1st April to 31st March 2013, 23 residents completed a planned move on. They welcome and treat clients with respect and dignity, and find out what they need and want. They offer professional and appropriate advice and help according to the client’s needs and aspirations. An action plan is agreed with clients which is time limited with the aim of supporting clients out of homelessness.

It costs over 4million a year to The Passage going, only 40% is funded from statutory sources; the rest comes from donations from individuals, church organisations, charitable trusts and companies.

I think this organisation is fantastic and I am very happy to get behind it.

Spot A Fake Model Agency

June 22, 2015

Who should you trust?…
How to spot a fake model agency

Having been contacted numerous times by so called and emailed by model agents, in the U.K and oversees, I am extremely wary of the growth and intelligence of this (well organised) industry. BE AWARE!

I would like to keep young adults (particularly women) aware of fake model agencies and show you how to avoid rogue model counts and agents. 
There are many model agencies that take on girls as young as 14 years old, therefore it is extremely important to be cautious. Even the well experiences and well travelled models can be affected or targeted. There are a number of background checks you can undertake when being contacted by a model scout

How to spot a FAKE Model Agency:

  1. Ask questions. A good, legitimate agency should have no problem providing you with detailed answers about their company and should gladly offer references if needed. If the person with whom you are speaking is hesistant to reveal information or is very eager to have you sign a contract and pay upfront fees, chances are you’re dealing with a scam. Stay away from agencies who aggressively advertise in the newspaper, free local magazines or on the radio. Well-known, reputable agencies don’t need to advertise.
  2. Find out if the agency signs talent for free or if they charge upfront fees. A modeling agency that requires you to pay fees for representation before you get any work is not legitimate. Most agencies should explain on their website that they don’t charge any fees and will only take a percentage of what you are paid when you get work. If an agency requires you to send money or pay for a professional photographer to develop your portfolio before you sign with them, then they’re probably not legit.
  3. Note if the agency lists clients they’ve represented and the types of jobs they book for their models. Look through the agency’s roster of models and examine the quality of work they’ve done.
  4. Legitimate modeling agencies operate during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 9 to 5. If a modeling agency wants you to meet in the evening or on the weekend, it’s probably not a safe bet. Look for the agency’s business license when you visit. If it is in plain view, then it’s a legitimate modeling agency. Note whether they display high-quality photographs of their models. If you see photos that look cheesy or look scanned or photocopied, then you’ve probably stumbled on a fake.
  5. Be wary of an agency that pushes you to pay for services such as classes and photoshoots. Real agencies provide these services to their models for free.
  6. Review all contracts and paperwork carefully. Legitimate agencies only take money from their clients on commission. At the time of publication, they usually take about 20 percent from the jobs you book

P.S – Always check the email address you have received an email from. If it looks legitimate, click ‘reply’ and make sure the domain details are still the same as the agency. If you are contacted by someone claiming to be from a model agency, feel free to email our team here on management@chloeothen.com and we’ll contact the agency on your behalf to report the abuse.

Be safe…

The Goring Hotel in London’s Belgravia

The Goring Hotel in London’s Belgravia!

The Great British Summer is finally HERE! It’s time for some fun in the sun 🙂 yesterday I enjoyed a lovely ‘long’ lunch and a game of Croquet oooo I do say. Where else can Croquet be played in London you might ask?… Try the Goring!!

I had the Smoked Salmon & Devilled Eggs to start followed by an amazing Lobster Omelette – a MUST try! It was not too heavy, quite creamy but very moorish. OH and the Chef was definitely not stingy with the Lobster.

“The Goring Hotel is an historic luxury hotel in London’s Belgravia district, famed for its independent style and modern British cuisine”.

The Goring stands out from the crowd as London’s last family-owned luxury hotel, with over a hundred years of passion for hospitality and commitment to service. Staff are trained to the highest standards of hospitality – always retaining a timely touch of fun. At The Goring, guests and made to feel at home, and after 105 years, they still continue to surprise and delight even the most frequent of guests…which I seem to have become!!

The Goring enjoys an enviable location in Belgravia. With Buckingham Palace, Knightsbridge, Mayfair and the Royal Parks all located nearby, it’s perfectly placed for shopping or theatre, work or play.

When in doubt leather it out… *Arts Club*

January 19, 2015
arts club

On a ‘Hump Day’ evening I found myself dancing the night away at the Arts Club, Dover Street.

The live band/singers were just fantastic at Arts Club. I wish I had known the name of the group! They managed to get everyone up out of their seats and busting some shameless moves on the dance floor.

Even though my friends and I had a table of alcohol (ahhh)… I kept up my Dry January regime and ordered several Peter Rabbit’s (Beetroot, Orange and Carrot juice) – this kept my energy levels high for a few hours… well, it was that or the fact I had also consumed a few sugary treats consisting of coconut sorbet and a bunch of Art’s chocolates…

Shop the look: Zara leather skirt, Zara blouse and Stuart Weitzman Highland boots. Perfect for a day and night look 🙂

Fully recommend Arts Club in Dover Street!
