What’s the best thing about attending a festival? Music? Drinking? Spreading the love? No of course not! It’s the chance to use that muddy field like a Milan catwalk, so don those wellies, dust off that straw hat and saddle up for some key advice on turning camping in to glamping.

My heart hits the floor at how effortlessly cool stars like Kate Moss and Vanessa Hudgens look at festivals, but we can all feel the love again as Topshop personal shopper, Shereen Farahi, talks us through 4 key fessie looks at the Westfield London Shopping Centre I particularly like the Kate Moss ensemble, as there’s an inner rock chick underneath us ladies 9-5 attire.

Essential items at any festival include a decent pair of wellies, quirky sunglasses and some arm candy; preferably in bracelet form and not the gentleman whose tent you may have wondered in to…

The geniuses at Redfoot have come up with wellingtons that can be folded up and popped in to your bag; simples! Grab yours for £49.99 and you’ll be begging for the Glasto mud bath. (


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; you being the one who holds that beauty, especially when donning Heti & GiGi’s festival spectacles.

Born from Heti’s love of all things retro, and based on a vintage pair found in Portobello Road, these unique specs allow you change the lenses to different colours, should you drop them in the mud or get carried away when crowd surfing. Plus a slice of the profits goes to Sight Savers, meaning you can feel a generous as Angie Jolie just for a short while.

No festival look could be complete without some serious jewels, which are perfectly designed by multi-award winning jeweller Tomasz Donocik. His designs are effortlessly on trend, and definitely worth the £165 price tag. (

Like all festivals, my blog has been short but sweet; I’m off to stock up on dry shampoo to combat my festival fro! Until next time glampers.. x
