2 Mates & A Blog guest post & street style on Nicely Turned Out
Hello. We’re Chan and Dan from 2 Mates and a Blog and we have the absolute honour of guest blogging for Nicely Turned Out this week. With this in mind it was imperative for us to pull out all the stops and to hold back nothing. It was show time. We are both great fans of Nicely Turned Out for a couple of solid reasons, such as the quality of content as well as the quality of design. Oh, and not to mention the pretty spectacular street style they capture.
Now, some of you might have seen our blog before but we’re guessing a vast majority of you haven’t. If there was one thing we would love to get across to all of the Nicely Turned Out readers with this one post, it would be that we love doing things big. We not only love getting our creative juices flowing by either enlisting our fun loving, quirky outfits on ourselves or others but we love to create storyboards and mood boards to explain our thought process behind each one of them. So here goes this weeks’ inspiration. With one of the AW14 biggest trends taking over the world it seems, we opted to express our 70’s flare. Baring in mind the uber cool prints, flares, wavy hair and bold block colours, we proceeded to embrace our inner hippy. Chan enlisted the help from the classic cut out wide legged jumpsuit and a rather vibrant sequinned/ embellished jacket. To enhance the look that little bit further she added a heavily patterned scarf to her wrist. However to bring some of the 21st century back she chose gold toe tap pointed heels. Dan went for a rather chic black velvet jumpsuit with a gold netted cardigan. Her large round sunglasses gave her that 70’s edge along with her flowing wavy locks. What are your thoughts on the current trend? Is it a nay or yay for you? Will you be digging out your mums’ denim flares and wrapping a head scarf around your head like Rambo?

A touching documentary about the New York Times street style photographer.
Bill Cunningham New York, a fashion documentary about the New York Times street style photographer who has obsessively chronicled fashion trends for decades. From your every day uptown eccentrics to New York fixtures such as Brooke Astor and David Rockefeller. The preview screening was at Mother London’s epic HQ in Shoreditch; Liz Muirhead reviews.
Bill Cunningham has an infectious smile and a passion for photography and fashion that is hard to match, given the number of decades he has been working in and around the industry. The film begins in a light hearted vein with frequent clips of Bill cycling around New York animating him as a ‘one of a kind’. Accolades from household names such as Anna Wintour in the first part of the film, did make me wonder quite how deep it would delve into his life behind the image and reputation that has developed over the course of his career. But then, just as I was in doubt, a high-profile fashion figure says she knows nothing of Bill’s personal life. In fact, a former colleague and close friend who has known Bill for many years seems relatively unfamiliar with his past as well. With this, a more personal line of questioning emerges with the precursor “you don’t have to answer any of these questions if you don’t want to…” and some incredibly moving footage follows. It was gripping. The interviewer had obviously built a good rapport with Bill – a vital ingredient for a documentary such as this. Of course, it’s wasn’t long at all before Bill’s smile returned and he was back to his playful self, and yet I felt I’d seen a side to him that very few had ever witnessed. An interesting sub-plot, if you will, focuses on Bill’s home in Carnegie Hall and his subsequent uprooting, which allows us to explore some of his friendships of many years with his amusing neighbours. The film establishes itself as a touching insight into Bill’s life rather than a surface scratching montage of “real” people Bill has photographed, which it so easily could have been. Even the somewhat comical bike scenes reinforce the idea that Bill is hugely dedicated to his job – though he would never call it a job. He was known to refuse pay cheques, preferring to keep his artistic freedom and integrity. With a delicate soundtrack including Velvet Underground, the film captures Bill wonderfully – it’s inspiring stuff.Bill Cunningham New York opens in the UK on March 16, 2012
Illustrator and photographer Andy Bumpus offers his take on some of the Nicely Turned Out muses. His colourful linear portraits, ever so slightly haunting with no facial outline or features except for the subjects mouth, provide a unique style of fashion illustration. He recently produced show report illustrations for Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s catwalk shows over S/S London Fashion Week, which have been featured on Vogue.com and Amelia’s Magazine.
