When we did our Hamburg tour, Anna was kind enough to lend us some time and a roof top, no less, for our shoot. We kept the theme laid back with jogging pants and ultra cool denim as our building blocks for the very cool, very deconstructed style.

From the north, we come carrying gifts...this time our Face of the Month is a bit younger, but all the more interesting because of her spirit and energy...Friday is launch day, so watch this space! Till then, this is our teaser...
We are already tuning into our South African mindset as we will be off to the fairest city in the Cape in just under 2 weeks, but until then, I just had to post this great outfit by Dainty Frocks…anything with tulle and we are there…just think of that great Carrie outfit from Sex and the City! If you like this look then you can visit their Facebook page or you can also try http:// dainty-frocks.myshopify.com
We love the clear African feel, with a modern twist…after all, what is more contemporary than tribal print paired with great tailoring?

Strong, powerful characters are to be found in London. There are all sorts of wonderful women, wearing fashion that is not easy to wear. This is home of the brave and for us fashion bloggers, this is a great place to find worthy subjects who inspire us even more. Take our next model who has the perfect balance of correct trouser length, super trendy shoes and laid back casual attitude that makes it all fit wonderfully together. We love the tattoos and of course the great red lips (is this becoming a signature in the city with the bright red buses?).
Cool trousers are not easy to find, but we found 3 great pairs from hobbs.com and we start with these leaf print Cade trousers selling on sale at 80 euros, then we have a tribal inspired jacquard pair on sale at 65 euros and then a pair of tweed silk print trousers selling at 125 euros.

With red hot lips and an angelic face, our next streetstyler had me snapping away in no time. It is tougher to make any all black ensemble work…without looking too gothic, but she manages to make her outfit work by playing with texture. The top and bomber jacket have very different fabrics and the choice of zebra skin sandals are a welcome injection of monochrome here, with an exotic touch…feels a bit like big city safari…
We find one label springs to mind when we look at this outfit: Alice & Olivia. So, here are out top 3 from the sale selection at mytheresa.com: this skirt will set you back 392 euros (was 785 euros), this crepe jumpsuit costs 195 euros (was 395 euros) and this striped wool sweater with cotton collar costs 177 euros (was 295 euros).

London was swinging in the 60’s and the mini, in my opinion is still synonymous with the flair of this remarkable city. It is still sexy, daring to show just enough skin and cool with a punkish attitude…It is time to bare those legs and on the streets of central London I found this great lace mini and had to photograph it for you. Love the sunglasses and of course the pointy flat boots (so very French!). With the well groomed hair, this is indeed a super package deal.
We have found three great minis, all from asos.com and the first is a black mini from Sisley, retailing at under 79 euros, with a great lace-like optic, the second is a metallic one from Antipodium, selling at under 215 euros and the third a burgundy number by ASOS and is a steal at under 29 euros.

A new day and a new city (yay!). We are opening our London file at last and this city never fails to surprise and make us stop dead in our tracks when we are there. There is just so much going on and so much to take in. I stayed away from the tourist route this time and discovered Lamb’s Conduit Street as a new fashion street where a lot is going on. This is one to take note of, people.
To balance out this UK tour, I stayed in Oxford, city of the amazing university and discovered a part of England that is so pretty and monumental (you could almost feel a Harry Potter scene being filmed around you at times). So, onwards and forwards to our streetstyles!
One of the perks of being part of an independent blog, is that you have carte blanche regarding what you decide to cover. You can choose topics and styles that you find interesting and nobody is there looking over your shoulder or insisting that your feature include a blue pair of shoes or this season’s must-have.
When we read the coverage regarding what has happened in Paris last week, a strange feeling was felt by our team. This event was momentous for many reasons. It is still not safe for journalists to be outspoken. It is still a fertile time for ideologies that decide who is allowed to live or die. For us, journalists, last Wednesday heralded in a time where everything is being questioned and we are placed before decisions about what is safe or not to include in the press. It is alarming and shocking that in this day and age, we are still wondering about censorship when our readers want us to be honest and open. It is scary that men with guns can force the world’s press to question the safety of their employees should they run a planned feature article or picture.
While Dashing George may cover fashion and street style, it is still a voice and each and every voice that has the ability to reach people online should say that this is not acceptable. Haven’t we fought long and hard for our freedom? Haven’t we learned from the past and what this means for our future? Our fashion prognosis is simple: choose which side of the fence you want to stand on…be free or caged in.

It is our last post from the awesome city of Milan: a city that at first appears daunting because of its size and scope, but in the end was open and warm to our camera on the street. So, thank you Milan for the good photos and marvellous fashion. Our last post features a great pair of shoes (because we love all that glitters) and these just had to be snapped for our fashion blog. Of course, that the wearer was sporting a gorgeous green Cèline bag did not go unnoticed!
Do your flat shoe shopping in one place and pop online to & Other Stories where we found three great pairs (and they will not break the budget and they will get 2015 off to a thrifty start). This pair of anaconda flats cost 75 euros, the chain leather loafers retail at 150 dollars (available in the US) and these leather cut-out brogues will set you back 125 euros.

I am a big fan of a good denim jacket. It has saved my life a few times…okay maybe a bit over dramatic, but I am the first to confess that this clothing essential is a must in any good wardrobe. It is a great way to keep warm in summer and under a coat in winter, it adds another jeans layer that harmonises wonderfully with chunky knits or tweeds.
Our next streetstyler has a good combi going with her vintage bag, washed out denim and short, short skirt. We love the down-to-earth boots and of course the grungy hair. In Milan, blonde hair always causes head to turn and in Yuliya’s case, it is well deserved.
We have our top 3 denim jackets for you. First up we have one on sale from h&m, retailing at 20 euros, then we have great men’s jacket from Japan Rags, on sale through shopstyle.co.uk, selling at 55 pounds. Finally, go all out with this one from 7 For All Mankind, through unger-fashion.com at 249 euros.
