Update Your Look, with an on trend pop of rainbow colour! ♥ Rainbow Crystal Necklace £24.99
Hi Laetitia, lovely to meet you! You obviously have an innate sense of style, but who or what is your biggest style influence?
"I tend to get inspired by a lot of different things, whether it is a character in a movie, the colour palette on a building or a relative. My ultimate style icon is my grandmother. Her style was really unique. I also often look to Audrey Horne (from Twin Peaks) as I like her mix of school girl and femme fatale silhouette."
Do you wear a lot of jewellery? What are your favourite pieces?
"Everyday, I wear my engagement ring (from the Victorian era) as well as a snake ring from Circé (my friend's jewellery line), a simple silver bangle and a fine necklace. When I go out, I generally just add a statement piece, often a big rhinestone necklace."
You've written a book called 'Style Yourself with Jewellery', which sounds right up our street, can you tell us a bit about it?"It is a book I wrote in collaboration with Swarovski, about incorporating costume jewellery in every moment of a woman's life." That sounds fantastic, every woman needs a few pieces of costume jewellery in their wardrobe!
Who's your favourite designer on myflashtrash and do you have a couple of favourite pieces?
Thank you Laetitia for having us for tea and cuddles with your lovely cat!

So, Paris fashion week is underway, and we've been loving the shows, especially Alexis Mabille, and the subtle use of jewellery throughout. The Alexis Mabille show had a real glam-goth vibe that we've seen lately on stars such as Lana Del Rey. We show you how to get the look with a little help from MY FLASH TRASH jewellery..
As always, there was an abundance of beautiful jewellery on the Oscars red carpet tonight.

After missing Zoe Jordan due to an urgent biz meeting, I couldn't wait to get down to the courtyard for the first day of #LFW talented twins Anette and Daniella Felder showed an irresistable collection that drew the whole gang down! Zoe Hardman looked gorgeous in Assya Rings and Laura Whitmore in Tatty Devine.
I opted for Flash Trash Girl Hoops, Assya Star Necklace and Me & Zena Rings to add a girly edge to my pastel ensemble!

LFW NOTES: Clutches are for tactically placing over the legs when sitting down whilst wearing a short skirt or dress. Shows always start late but that doesn't mean you should be. Do check out up and coming designers in the exhibition. Do take a moment to reflect how wonderful it is to witness a parade of months of very hard work by talented designers and their unpaid fashion devoted interns. xxxxxx yahhh fashhhion but also jewellery

Rosie's latest post is all about our Cheek Frills x Flash Trash Girl collaboration, she's been as excited as we are about the collab and thinks that our gift set will make the perfect Valentine's Day present:
"I have been beyond excited the past couple of months about my twin sister’s collaboration with my good friend Amber Atherton. Myflashtrash.com and underwear label Cheek Frills have just announced the launch of their first collaboration, which will be a Valentine’s Day exclusive. The set includes a ‘Love’ Cheek Frills knicker and FlashTrash Girl eternity bracelet.

Cheek Frills launched last season in Selfridges, Shopbop and Brown Thomas and the label is going from strength to strength.

Flash Trash Girl, Myflashtrash.com’s own brand collection is tag-lined ‘Rad Jewellery For Cool Girls’ and debuted to much fan-fare at Fashion Week in September.

It was 3:30pm and I was sitting in our office, phones ringing off the hooks emails filling up our inboxes like the tides of a tsunami and boxes of new jewellery slowly turning the place into some kind of emerald fort. T-minus 2 hours to premiere.
At this point I've got a pencil in my hair, no make up and am wearing Paige jeans and a chunky COS jumper- hardly premiere attire. A chance call from my friend over at Urban Retreat and I was on my way to Harrods for a blow dry! Dashed home to pick up a dress from the wonderful designer Alessandra Facchinetti, my favourtie Charlotte Olympia shoes, and a box full of ASSYA jewellery- transformation underway!
I met our head of operations, Jenni at The W Hotel Bar where we had a quick martini royale pre drink with business associates whilst checking in with the lovely Leon who manages the store at The W where our lovely FLASHTRASH concession is located (pop down for exclusive jewellery!!) and minutes turned into an hour and before we knew it we were late.
A teetering dash down the red carpet and an ever so slightly tispy stop in front of a wall of photographers before conveninetly, literally bumping into Quentin Tarantino who was holding a Mc Donalds style drink of Coke although I can't be certain it was actually coca cola inside. 'Great Dress!!' He said to my face- 'Thank you Tarantino! Quentin I mean, Yes Thank you Quentin Tarantino!!' slightly shocked we made our way into the cinema bumping into a possum eyed, aloof James Arthur on the way- sweet!
2 hours of heady Tarantino style violence later and I was hungry for red meat so off I headed to join friends at Bocca Di Lupo before swinging by the after party later where I danced till dawn with Kerry Washington #GIRLCRUSH!! JK I was totally in bed before midnight.
