On Friday I took a trip to the capital for London Fashion Weekend, the part of fashion week that's a little more toned down and tame - basically a celebration that all the not as cool people can enjoy, I'm talking about purely myself here. I'm yet to experience LFW but hey, there's always next year am I right?! Experiencing just a little part of it was great fun though, seeing designers collections and a catwalk show along with dozens of stylish people was seriously inspiring. But I'll save that for my next post, for now it's all about the OOTD I wore for such occasion.
Dress - Missguided (similar), belt - Missguided, shoes - eBay (Asos originally), denim jacket - Depop, ring - Bloody Mary Metal.
I wanted to dress true to my style with an outfit that really reflects 'me', so rocking some gear majorly inspired by the rock 'n' roll era, that Harry Styles lad and the one and only YSL is what this chicks all about, it was sort of an homage to the greats if you will. I am and forever will be obsessed with Yves Saint Laurent and the S/S collection that we saw a few months back was so inspiring for me. I always think of velvet, stars, glitter and the rock genre when YSL comes to mind so this outfit was majorly taken from that.
On the subject of Styles and YSL - two things that go marvellously in the same sentence, these boots are my version of the many pairs of boots and trainers that Saint Laurent has come out with, the metallic gold boots that Harry wears are my all time favourite shoe that I long to own, seriously just give me all the glitter and metallic boots please! My not as fancy but still pretty bad ass booties are an Asos special that I won on eBay for £3.60 including postage, yep you did read that correctly it wasn't your mind playing tricks on you because you're tired after a long day at work, honest! I feel so sorry for the lady who sold me these because they originally retail at £45 so I am very sorry lovely lady on eBay but you have made me very happy if it makes you feel any better?
I think if I was made into a cartoon character that wore the same clothes every episode (why so cartoons never change clothes by the way?), this would be my outfit. It reflects me and my style perfectly.
