Guest Stylist at Girl Meets Dress: Natasha Poliszczuk

natash

 This weeks Guest Stylist pick on the @Girlmeetsdress  blog is from Natasha Poliszczuk the co-founder of  Wear & Where.  Natasha and Alex have  been friends and journalists for over a decade. The fashionable duo bonded whilst working at InStyle an created the blog Wear & Where.

Natasha is currently Assistant Editor at GLAMOUR and between them they have worked for Red, Brides, Easy Living, Vogue, The Telegraph, The FT and The Guardian and are both mothers, writers and style enthusiats. Girl Meets Dress were happy Natasha could spare some time for a quick style Q&A… Enjoy.

How would you describe your style?

I’d like to think I’m a little bit French girl by way of a touch of preppy. My default uniform is skinny, cropped trousers (or jeans – I love Ida by Donna Ida) or a bright/printed/full skirt, flats, a great bag, fitted jacket and statement necklace.

 

What are your fashion loves, and your hates?

Loves: Navy (the holy grail would be the perfect pair of navy trousers) and grey; statement necklaces; J Crew Tippi sweaters; full skirts

Hates: I am from a pretty broad fashion church (you should wear what suits you and what you feel good in), so I wouldn’t say I have any fashion ‘hates’ as such, but on me, sportswear as daywear is an absolute no-go.

 

Most-loved item in my wardrobe

I fear I am rather fickle with my sartorial affections. At this precise moment, I’m keen anything which fits and minimises my bump (I’m eight months’ pregnant); so I’m loving my bright, floral See by Chloe dress and my MiH jeans In the Studio shirt

But I have a beautiful Victoria by Victoria Beckham cocktail dress which I bought just before I fell pregnant – and I stroke it  from time to time, promising myself it will get an outing this party season; and I am currently in love with the white Lucy Flower shirt dress by Alice by Temperley I bought to wear next summer.

 

For sentimental reasons, I also love my wedding dress (which was from Liberty, when they had a bridal atelier), of course.

 

I appreciate that’s a rather long list! I warned you I was fickle…

 

What advice would you have for anyone wanting to get into journalism?

Write, write, write! And read everything you can lay your hands on, so you can train your eye to see what makes a good story – and good writing. Always carry a notebook and get into the mindset of thinking, ‘Would this be an interesting story? Is there an angle?’ as you’re reading the newspapers/perusing the web/chatting with your friends.

 

Yes, magazines are gorgeous and glossy, and of course I love them. But underestimate the power of the web and new technology at your peril. So, do apply to magazines for work experience, but also hit up websites. Start your own blog – it’s a great way to showcase your writing and what you’re interested in.

 

P.S. When you get that work experience, do everything brilliantly – from research to making tea. People do remember and will recommend you when that dream job pops up.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I suspect all journalists say this but…everywhere and anywhere. Books, newspapers, the layout of a shop, my friends, something I catch on the radio whilst simultaneously trying to get ready for work and talking to my three-year-old…

 Name one item no journalist should be without?

A perpetually inquiring mind (or, to put it another way: being nosy is a good thing!) and somewhere handy to make notes (be that an old fashioned notepad or your phone).

rrrr

How would you describe your style?
Relaxed with a slightly quirky edge
What are your fashion loves, and your hates?
I love patterned trousers – just adore them. Whether they’re crops for the summer, patterned jeans or harem-esq pyjama style, I can’t get enough of them. I also love dress coats and long cardigans.
I don’t ‘hate’ fashions on other people, but I really can’t stand wrap dresses for me. They feel so wrong. Also I’m not a huge fan of cap sleeves (yuck) or ribbed polo necks (shudder). Anything too tight or too booby is also a no-no.
What’s the most loved item in your wardrobe?
Hmm hard one as I love things for different reasons. My most loved – and worn – item is a pair of light grey jeans. So worn they’re now ripped at the knee, which handily works well for the current rip trend! They fit beautifully and are just the right colour. I also love pair of harem-esq patterned trousers. Tailored at the ankle and leg, but loose at the top in black with a pattern, they’re just so cool and flattering. Then there’s my emerald green, Grecian-style Alice Temperley dress which I don’t wear that much (it’s a serious occasion dress), but is just so extraordinarily beautiful. I also love my (Temperley) wedding dress for the memories associated with it.
What advice would you have for anyone wanting to get into journalism?
So, this is a tricky one as the world of journalism has changed enormously since I started out. Back then (in 2000), the internet hardly existed, interns were paid, budgets were ridiculous and there were magazines being launched all the time. These days online is HUGE and, both Natasha and I believe, is very much the future. Traditional print media is being challenged and it’s a hard world for them. With this in mind, I’d recommend that aspiring journalists should set up their own blogs. Very cheap to do and gives you a platform for your work – it also shows future bosses that you have drive to get up and do something. In addition, you should try and build up a portfolio of published work. Write for school/student/local newspapers. Pitch ideas carefully – you’re not going to get a commission for Vogue if you’ve never been published before, but you might get one in a newspaper or online version of a newspaper if you are prepared to write on spec and have a unique idea that hasn’t been seen (the holy grail for a commissioning editor). And don’t give up. I probably got about 100 rejections before I got my first proper job. It’s hard, but it’s worth it.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
All over. Stories in newspapers, people I talk to, things I hear on the radio, people I see on the street, conversations I have. Everywhere.
Name one item no journalist should be without?
A computer. If you don’t own one – then you need access to one.
What is your favourite SS14 trend?
I’m quite digging the ugly shoe at the moment. I’m sure I’ll go off it soon, but at the moment it feels right.

Zohra1

 

 

We are continuing with our new blog series of  stylists and bloggers having their say on the@GirlMeetsDress blog, Every few days we will invite a stylist or blogger to share their style picks with us. They will be answering a few of our fashion Q&As as well as  picking their 5 favourite items from Girl Meets Dress…We hope you enjoy!

Today GMD are very happy to introduce an exciting new blogger Zohra Khan. Zohra has her own blog Whims of a Word Crafter and is a  freelance journalist and fashion journalist for The Clothes Maiden Magazine, Zohra also dabbles in photography, events managment and studying. With all this on her schedule GMD were very happy Zohra could spare a few minutes to chat with us and answer a few of our questions about our favourite topic… Fashion.

 

1- How would you describe your style in one word?

I would describe my style as eclectic!

2- What is the one item of clothing you could not live without?
The one item I cannot live without is my leather jacket, it just completes any outfit I have and instantly transforms it!
3- Who is your style icon?
 My style icon has to be Olivia Palermo, she’s the definition of class and elegance and always manages to look stylish wearing the simplest of things.

Here are Zohra’s Top 5 GMD Dresses

11g

 

 

 

1)Beulah Rapunzel Blue Heart Gown

This dress from Beulah is such a classic beauty, and I adore the silk satin material of it adorned with scattered hearts.  It’s striking with its clashes of midnight blue with natural colours. You can make do and complete the elegant look by piecing it with an embellished clutch for that spot on timeless beauty look.

 

2)Gorgeous Couture Evita Maxi Gown 

What instantly drew me to this gorgeous piece was its lace panelled top section and the striking sheer red colour of the dress. The subtle pleats at the bottom of the dress coupled with the lace panels is a guarantee to add illusions of curves!

 

3)Beulah Silver Painted Lady  

This dress is SO Grace Kelly, with its pleated neckline and thigh high slit, you’re sure to make a grand entrance. What I think this dress does best is that whilst it is pretty sultry in a subtle way, it just oozes with glamour and class!

 

4)Dina Bar-El Sophia  

What’s better then sweeping into an event with an indigo silk-satin charmeuse gown that puts you in the spotlight?! This dress is to die for with its silk-chiffon ruffles falling gracefully across the bodice and that train will be sure to add a statement to your outfit. I thought this is a perfect dress to channel your inner Kate Middleton with the class but be a bit out there with the added train and glitzy embellishments!

 

5)Margaery Gown 

On those cold nights, there’s nothing quite like a bit of arm coverage especially when it looks as good as this! Embellished with sequins and beads, there’s a tad Midsummer Night Dream feel about this dress and that’s what I love. It’s exquisitely graceful and looks perfect for a wedding or ball. I especially love how the dress looks free flowing and floaty so you can swish that skirt as you’re asked for a dance 😉

Guest Stylist at Girl Meets Dress: Charlotte Kewley

alice

 

This weeks Guest Stylist pick on the@Girlmeetsdress  blog is from Charlotte Kewley, Charlotte is a freelance Stylist & Fashion Editor with over a decades worth of experience in the fashion industry. She began her career at Sugar and then More magazines where she built up her knowledge and expertise in the field of fashion and styling. She has contributing to many magazines styling both fashion and celebrity shoots; OK!, Fabulous, Stylist, Zest and Two to name a few. All her years of experience and drive have enabled Charlotte to build her client base and become the reputable stylist she is today.

 

 

 

Charlotte answered a few questions for us:

– How would you describe your style?

Cool, casual and fairly classic – I mix it up a bit, sometimes I go more dark and rocky and sometimes I like a pretty, more feminine look.

 

– What are your fashion loves, and your hates?

I love my leather jacket! I left an old treasured one in the back of a black cab and it took almost a year to find the perfect replacement (in Whistles eventually). I love it when people experiment but I hate it when people try to hard or look overdressed/slutty. I’d always rather look under than overdressed personally.

 

– What’s the most loved item in your wardrobe?

My leather jacket. And I just got a new Sophie Hulme bowling bag that I adore.

 

– What advice would you have for anyone wanting to get into styling?

Get lots of work experience with stylists and on magazines and make as many contacts as possible!

 

– Where do you get your inspiration from?

Everywhere. Definitely the catwalk but more and more from streetstyle pics and blogs!

 

– Name one item no stylist should be without?

To wear or in your stylist kit!?

To wear – the perfect pair of day boots! We’re constantly running around on appointments, on shoots and around press days so a great pair of flats or boots is a must.

In your kit – safety pins and a lint roller, ha!

 

– What is your favourite SS14 trend?

I love all of the pastels and I love sport luxe – the Christopher Kane Petal and Flower sweatshirts combine the two perfectly. Want!

 

Here are Charlotte’s picks from GirlMeetsDress.com

style pick

1-  VIONNET / Vivid Print Dress

 I love this print, perfect for a party with black ankle boots or for a Spring wedding.

2- CHEAP MONDAY / Vee Dress

This could be the perfect sexy LBD!

3- BEULAH / Silver Painted Lady

Wow, this dress is just beautiful and the type of dress you really would only wear once so how great that you can hire it. I’d wear it with the simplest silver or gold heels and keep the rest of the look simple.

4- BY MALENE BIRGER / Isalena Sequined Dress

By Malene Birger dresses (and clothes) are always so flattering and chic. I love super short dresses with long sleeves. The sleeves balance out the length!

5-  DIANE VON FURSTENBERG / Belted Lupe Summer Dress

A fab holiday/summer dress. I always pack an easy, versatile floral dress in my suitcase.
