From events to creatives’, Scotland’s fashion scene is on the up, up and away. This week’s Blogger of the Week is definitely from Scotland with love. Sheri Scott from Forever Yours, Betty talks all things fashion in Scotland. This Glasgow gal sure knows how to rock a high street/young designer mash up, and she has now shared her Scot street style secrets with you. Oh you lucky lot…
Forever Yours, Betty – Supporting @ScotStreetStyle
If you are on Instagram and living in Scotland there is no way in escaping @ScotStreetStyle. An online movement which started with one guy (legend that is) Gordon J. Millar and his quest to bring creatives together and celebrate style. Last Friday (31st of January) Gordon invited all lovers of the hashtag to unite in one location to meet, bond and possibly collaborate. As an Edinburgh local, Gordon requested the help of my company Betty and Bee to find the perfect venue which just had to be West End favourite hotspot – The Hillhead Bookclub.
Taking over the entire balcony area it really was “Go Beard or Go Home” for the boys, I have never seen anything like it! I have always been one to support shopping local, whether it be with companies like Mallzee or of course some of the fantastic designers we have on our doorstep. With it being Scot Street Style I thought tartan would be the appropriate choice for the evenings attire. I have had this beautiful pink tartan ‘Cher Pinafore’ from Isolated Heroes since the Bold Souls – Off the Runway event and I LOVE IT! It is the right amount of playfulness without looking like a wee lassie. I teamed it up with a lilac fluffy top from Primark (ye know, the one that everyone has in all the colours, if not what are you waiting for?!) white platform ‘Fly Girl’ boots from Schuh and my Biba doctors bag. I have only worn the pinnie once before with all black underneath so I loved playing with lighter colours for the event.
Of course when running out the door, this kind of look does not work well in sub zero Scottish temperatures. Fortunately, my Limited Paris Collection fur coat from H&M (otherwise known as my P Diddy) was just the ticket to keep me warm, especially when finished with the Tabarca Hollyhood from my beloved Chouchou Couture. A hollyhood is a must have for every man, woman and child who live in a windy/rainy city. It is the perfect finishing touch to most outfits as Chouchou’s fabric choices are simply to die for, especially the floral limited Valentines editions, enough to make any girl swoon! When was the last time you shopped local?
