i the stylist Street Style – 30 June 2014

Last week we headed to east London, the hub of fashionistas, for some style hunting and of course we had a field day. If you want to appear in our Street Style section follow us on Twitter @ithestylist and we’ll let you know where we’re going to be each week.  Our question this time around was, Facebook crashed for 30 minutes recently and there was panic.  So, why do you think we rely on social media so much?
