Hi! My name is Monica Beatrice Welburn and I am a blogger, occasional presenter, and style lover.
The Elgin Avenue is named after a magnificent long road, in the area of London which I was lucky enough to call home for four years. I now live in a beautiful nook of the English countryside, a stone's throw away from London, where I can still get the perfect extra hot, dry, cappuccino, but with a little extra room to roam.
This is my space for sharing my personal style, beauty, love of interiors, travel and much more.
OK spoiler alert – this beautiful floral embellished design from Topshop is a favourite of mine and the whole styling team for Rock The Look. Not only did I wear the skirt version for my Clique magazine shoot at the beginning of the year, but our show model Jasmine wore the dress version in first episode of Rock The Look, dolling up for Lily Allen’s ‘red carpet’ style. Unfortunately this exact style doesn’t seem to be available online any more, however I am in love with this simple classic LBD style from ASOS – it’s a total steal.
If you had told me five years ago that neoprene was going to become a fashion-favourite fabric I would have seriously doubted your prediction, but neoprene has quickly ascended as one of the best fabrics for maintaing structures in silhouettes, particularly skirts. As for creases? It it the Don for packing.
I am still in the midst of house organisation / living between multiple locations whilst we finish filming and so I am so excited to catchup with some of my best girlfriends this weekend, including wishing this pretty lady a VERY happy Birthday!
