This is kinda like a cheap man's The Kooples ad. Actually, it's nowhere near as classy or chic.
Say 'hello' to the fella usually behind the camera! My other half and partner in crime, James, was given the full style blogger treatment as the FYT & Co gang treated us both to a bag of our choice from their AW'14 range. I was first introduced to FYT & Co a few months back when I attended a small gathering for a blogger's breakfast hosted by the brand. They're definitely a hidden gem in the accessories department as their bag designs mix up classic and contemporary unlike no other. For example, a lot of their rucksacks have detatchable iPad cases - genius!
James chose the Hawthorne Roll Top Rucksack, whilst I opted for the Drift Backpack in Burgundy, which can also be used as a carry bag too! We were both particularly impressed and amazed at how many compartment's the roll top rucksack had inside. James could probably fit all of of the possessions he owns in there. It'll almost definitely be accompanying us to Glastonbury next summer.
Also, let's take a moment to mention my white full-length Dickie's dungas that I nabbed from Depop for just £15! Now, I wanted a full length pair of white dungarees for LFW SS15, but didn't find any in time. Then who decides strut into Somerset House in a pair of white dungarees? Only bloody Alexa Chung. What a diva! Definitely stole my idea. Anyway, I managed to buy this pair after Fashion Week for an absolute bargain. They actually came with loops to hold paintbrushes and tools (decorator chic), which I swiftly cut off. And yes, I bought them from a boy.
Also, the guys at FYT & Co kindly threw in a surprise set of matching beanies (hence the cringey picture) made from bamboo cellulose meaning they are insanely soft. It's pretty much glued to my head at the moment.
