Blogger of the week: Megan Ellaby

Megan from ‘pagesbymegan.com’ is a Manchester born full-time blogger who is currently living in London and working as an ASOS stylist. Sounds like a pretty ideal life right? Albeit an incredibly busy one! The twenty-two year old covers everything on her blog, from personal style, to travel, to showing her readers the best of London’s brunch spots. Seriously though, her weekly bruches make me incredibly jealous/ravenous, plus her restaurant reviews are extremely well informed.

On to what we’re all here for: her style. Megan is the epitome of the modern seventies trend; always found in a necktie, skinny-scarf, statement prints and a hella lot of leopard. I’m constantly looking at a lot of bloggers and wishing I could emulate some of their pieces for an affordable price, well luckily with Ellaby we can! She has her own ASOS range…dream come true! A search of Megan x Asos is fruitful, the collection includes a vibrant patch-work suede skirt, a couple of belted shirts and a few 70s inspired blouses.

A quick scroll through ‘pages by megan’ and it becomes clear what kind of brands she loves, mid-range prices with good quality fabric and unique tailoring. From House of Holland (of which was her first ever internship), Acne Studios, Jamie Wei Huang, Charlie May and Shrimps. These brands all have a lot in common with her own taste, they’re trend-led but with a timeless spin and they all know the importance of texture. This blogger is rarely seen without some form of faux-fur, velvet or suede; a mantra I definitely abide by! An outfit is made by the details, therefore a surprise colour burst from a fur collar or pom-pom bag goes a long way.

Plus can we just take a moment to appreciate her layering skills, I mean no one clashes prints like Megan. I’m pretty sure I’d look like a clown if I wore leopard print, stripes and fuschia together but somehow she pulls it off. Maybe it’s due to the fact that she looks like Alexa Chung’s sister who is just as effortlessly cool (I’ve got serious hair envy). Or maybe her style comes from her fashionable family which includes a wedding dress designer mother and a younger sister (@fellaby) who’s an ASOS student insider! Her top tips for breaking out of your comfort zone is “Start a Pinterest board and pin everything and anything you like and just start experimenting!”. This is good advice, as it’s very easy to get stuck in a rut and just wear the same cycle of clothes; pinterest is always great at reminding you what you have in your wardrobe and giving inspiration in how to style it differently from how you usually would.
