One of my favorite websites (even before I was a fashion blogger) Bloglovin' has created an iPhone app! If you are not familiar, Bloglovin' helps you follow the blogs you read by letting you know when they update. I love reading my favorite blogs and discovering new ones on the go. Bloglovin' also hosts the well-known Bloglovin' Awards each year which I am hoping Mouthful of Style will be a nominee this year.

This has been a very exciting week for MFS. Firstly, you may have noticed the new Fashion Parkway badge on my main blog page. Yes, Fashion Parkway has sponsored MFS and I am thrilled to be joining the incredible team as their newest fashion contributor. Fashion Parkway is everything in fashion covered by select fashion bloggers, writers and photographers. Keep a look out for my first contribution in the upcoming week.
Secondly, I am so pleased to announce that MFS will be receiving a total makeover in the very near future. A little sneak preview above but keep checking back for the complete new look! Tomorrow I will be posting one of my favorite photo shoots so far, Classic White Shirting. Happy Friday!

A picture is worth 1,000 words. That is the saying, right? In order to give you more I've launched MFS on Instagram. Want to see my favorite piece in my closet from yesterday's post? Top right corner of first image. Want a look into British catwalk designer Emilio de la Morena's design studio? Middle of second image. Want to see my daily outfits, fashion findings and inspirations? It's all there and more!

I decided to create Mouthful of Style to share my love for fashion. From trends of the moment to pieces that last a lifetime, fashion is constantly shaping and challenging me to find and evolve my own fashion identity. I think I finally have it down but I took my time.
Growing up in California and currently living in London, I spent the majority of my 20s in New York City where my love for all things fashion grew exponentially. How couldn't it in a city that lives and breathes "cool." I worked in the luxury goods industry in NYC prior to moving to London to pursue higher education. My diverse living experiences have defined my current style to what I call "Refined New York Chic." What does this mean? I've become more refined since moving to London and wear my hair in a ponytail more often than not now instead of long, down and styled messily. I've said goodbye to nights out on the town in sweatpants and sky-high Louboutin's; it just doesn't fly here in London (I've tried)!
So my style is a bit more refined, what else? Well London, like NYC, is a huge fashion capital of the world and my knowledge and appreciation of the industry has developed aesthetically as well as from a business standpoint (my MBA talking here). I'm loving Burberry's digital reign, leading global shopping website Net-A-Porter, Mary Katrantzou fast establishing her brand image as the Queen of Digital Prints, the numerous online fashion startups like FarFetch and of course bringing it all back to everything Alexander McQueen. These companies are huge leaders in their own rights and I will continue to explore the fashion business and luxury goods industry with you.
Every post of this blog will be a mouthful worth of all things stylish I hold value to. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I will enjoy sharing my fashion insights, inspirations and luxury business learnings with you!
