Tweet, tweet - bump

Common annoying tweets by the fashion twitterati:

1. Coco Chanel quotes...

2. ...In fact, make that quotes of any kind.

3. The "Just off to such-and-such press day..." - please make your bragging a little less overt...

4....Similarly: "A package has just landed from [insert downmarket brand here] on my desk containing a a glittery loo roll dispenser - amazing!"

5. Including French words and phrases when English will do perfectly well. This is actually a trait common to fashion writing in general, and it's annoying and pretentious, d'accord?

Atlanta Taylor De Cadenet
On the subject of of Atlanta, I found out via RDuJour that she's going out with The Cobra Snake. Which explains why she's always in his pics, and always looking smoking hot. See more Atlanta stuff here.

Oh, and thank you Apparellel, for educating me about your gorgeous El Vaquero sandals (you can see what she says here). If you haven't already, don't forget to check out her Q&A with The Last Miaow; she has loads of interesting things to say about shopping in her hometown of Los Angeles.

A virtual minute with... stylist and online editor Jemma Tibbals

An occasional series of interviews with members of the online fashion community.

Jemma Tibbals works on the fashion desk at, and is a freelance stylist.

What are your favourite shops online and on the street?
I am a little allergic to buying online, but I have been lured in by The Outnet a few times. I love the V&A shop for fun accessories (I've just bought this hat) and although I’m yet to buy from it, Claire Incorruptible is an amazing site, selling vintage Alaia, Balenciaga and Chanel. Vintage fairs (Hammersmith vintage fashion fair is a good one) and charity shops are my ideal places to shop, because they’re cheap so you can buy something flamboyant and not feel guilty if you only wear it once. My favourite shops include Liberty, H&M and Petit Bateau; I also really love the dance shop Freed on St Martins Lane for wrap-around cardigans, which are a staple in my wardrobe.

Other than, what are your regular go-to websites for fashion info – including blogs, online magazines etc?
WWD,, The Business of Fashion, The Telegraph and are my everyday ports of call for news. Refinery29, New York Magazine, The Daily, T Magazine, On the Runway by Cathy Horyn, Fashionologie, Fashion Copious, Shala, RDuJour, Fashion Gone RogueCuriouser and Curiouser - the list is endless. Guilty pleasure: The Daily Mail website - don’t knock it 'til you’ve tried it!

What's the most successful thing you've ever published online?
My trend translated stories on get the best reaction. It’s a similar idea to Polyvore, which has proven ridiculously popular.

What are your favourite London hangouts?
Marie’s Cafe on Lower Marsh does delicious, cheap Thai food. Just down the road from there is ScooterCaffe - recently voted one of the best secret cafes by Time Out - which is a nice place to go for a drink. They have three cats - it’s a bit like someone’s front room. Do book shops count as hangouts? For the best unique finds I go to the ones on Charing Cross Road. I basically ride everywhere on my bike, you get to see loads more of London that way.

What's the future for fashion and the internet?
I think more of what we have now: Continued access-all-areas from fashion houses and fashion editors through the insights on their blogs, and lots more magazines going down the interactive route.
