FOUR LADIES WHO KILLED IT AT FASHION WEEK

I usually keep quiet around this time of year, with Fashion Week gracing all of our socials it's hard to get a word in edge ways. I'm also too busy scrolling the web researching shows and finding out what my favourite influencers are wearing, which led me to doing this post.

I'm yet to attend Fashion Week, the thought of it makes me feel anxious and honestly, not quite worthy. I am in awe of what goes on and would love to attend, but then I also feel maybe it's not my scene. It all looks very glamorous, but then I remember how cruel the fashion world can be. Some people were quick to slate the going-ons and behind the scenes drama, even New Look decided to jump on the hype and tweet a string of comments they overheard at Fashion Week - brutal!


Instead of discussing a topic I have no idea about, and quite frankly don't deserve an opinion on because oh yeah, I'VE NEVER BEEN! I wanted to share my favourite moments from the streets of London, where the amazingly dressed humans strutted their stuff for the world to admire.

Firstly, I'd like to mention my favourite fashion duo - Shea Marie and Caroline Vreeland; both magically beautiful and dress to impress at all costs. I adore Shea and the way she styles herself, but the pair of them together are completely bad ass! If I was to have one woman's wardrobe, it would undoubtedly be hers. Then I'd make complete use of BFF Carolines, because if I'm in with Shea, I'm making damn sure I'm in with the best pal too! My favourite look had got to be brown and pink fur coat teamed with the Fendi sock boots, absolute dream combo!

Next up is probably my favourite person on the Internet, Emma Breschi. If you don't already follower her, please do! She's a beautiful and hilarious model that seems stupidly down to earth and definitely someone I'd love to hang out with. Her outfits are always cool, with the sort of 'give a fuck?' attitude that I envy. She slayed at LFW, matching outfits with Cassyette for the Ashish show, and a one colour pallet for the rest.

Lastly, I'd like to talk about the complete love I have towards Lucy Williams and her effortless, city girl style. It's a style I admire, and one I wish to purse at a later date. Her style is edgy and classic, like Alexa Chung raided Lou Doillons wardrobe. She didn't fail to impress me during this weeks antics, by wearing killer looks from designers like Joseph. I now need even more blazers in my life, thanks Lucy!

Of course, there were so many looks that absolutely smashed it this Fashion Week, it's hard to narrow it down to just four. But these inspiring women are constantly looking good, no matter what they attend. I have a soft spot for you all!

FAUX SIMONE



After being blown away by the sheer amount of street-style snaps and insider footage from London Fashion Week, I'm left feeling inspired as I always am after such an event. Designers, models and bloggers are sure to make such a whirlwind of creative energy that just so happens to float my way after every season. This time round I'm pointing the finger at Charlotte Simone - the queen of fur who has given me all the feels with her latest collection. Now, just to clarify, I 100% do not condone fur whether it's 'ethically sourced' or not, but Simone let's you have the option of real or fake (I know, there shouldn't even be an option) which is perfect for those of us who care about such a thing. Her range of Popsicles and Sass Caps have been seen on the likes of Alexa Chung and Gemma Styles, but not me as of yet. Thankfully though, I found this dreamy bundle of fluff in my housemates closet making this my fake and free version of my dream Charlotte Simone scarf.




Top - Zara
Skirt - Topshop
Boots - Primark
Jacket - Zara (similar)
Scarf - Vintage
Tights - Primark
Jewelry - Bloody Mary Metal and vintage




I decided to mix things up and get super colour co-ordinated with this outfit, matching my scarf to my skirt and my skirt to my shirt... I've gone for my new Stones tee from Zara's recent Zara x The Rolling Stones collection which celebrates their new jazz album, Blue and Lonesome (which BTW is utterly flawless). I doubled up on my leather wearing a basic jacket but an out-there skirt. If you've been searching for the perfect leather pieces for your wardrobe then head to Topshop who are killing it in that department at the moment. The one I'm wearing comes in several different colours including metallic silver and baby pink, both of which are on my wish list. These skirts go with so much I own making them super easy to throw on and style.

Keeping with the OTT theme, I've picked out my new shiny Primark boots and taken them for a spin. I'm finding myself tip-toeing around the streets trying not to scuff or dirty them because of how clean they are. They'll soon be ruined like my old Topshop pair though, as they make for the perfect shoe that match most of my outfits for day time or evening events. You'll probably be sick of the sight of them soon, much like my old ones... Sorry!

LONDON FASHION WEEKEND PICTURE BOOK | 4.10.15



Last weekend was a quick trip to London for me and my great buddy Kristina, we went for the LFWEnd madness and it was lovely. It's so great getting away for just a day and even though London isn't the most relaxing place on earth, it's still a change from the norm. It's espeically fab to meet someone you've been interweb pals for, for what feels like years and when we did meet we certainly felt like we'd been best friends forever - BFFS! What a better place to meet a fellow blogger then at a fashion event, a pretty important one at that. London Fashion Week is an event we all know and wish to attend, some of us are yet to go (me, me and oh yeah me...) but the weekend event is one that whoever pleases can attend, just simply buy yourself a ticket.



Let's get real for a minute because it's fair to say that not everyone is attending these prestigious events so being able to attend one that's still part of the fun feels nice, it's great to get involved! If you sit behind your computer every Fashion Week thinking 'I wish I was sat on the FROW at so-and-so's show' then next time book yourself that ticket and go. It may not be at the Burberry show sat next to Moss or Delevigne but who cares? Me secretly A shows a show and seeing some of the lesser known but incredible designers work is all kinda of inspiring. Yes, Burberry is phenominal and I dream of attending literally any of the A list catwalks but we're not all serious fashionistas, we have got to start somewhere though.

Realness over and onto the day. We met up around mid day after my morning meeting at the Feels office where I spent some time having my photos taken for the app, which if you haven't downloaded yet - do. I wore an outfit from the Lazy Oaf x Ragged Priest collection and posed infront of some brick walls, so edgy. I had fun and seeing the work that goes on behind the app was pretty cool. I'm planning a post on Feels next week so definitely keep your peepers peeled for that but in the mean time you should defnitely do some research and give it a download.

After my stop by the Feels headquarters I met up with Kristina at Waterloo, we then took a few tube stops to the beautiful Soho where the Saatchi Gallery is located. I adore Soho, it makes me feel warm inside strolling down the streets surrounded by endless designer stores and hip brunch spots, add a filter and it's basically a filler shot for Made in Chelsea and I love that. We took some time and wondered about the shops, the main point of interest being Brandy Melville of course. Screw the high end fasion we wanted comfy-casual laidback gear and that's the ultimate destination for comfortable dressing. Kristina left with a bag full and I left with a ring, we were both happy with our buys though. We headed for lunch at Pret because we're simpletons that couldn't decide on what cool café to go to so that seemed like the obvious choice - shame on us. After lunch, back to the event!

Once in the Saatchi Gallery we were greeted by a couple of entrances which led to endless rails of designer clobber which is any fashion lovers dream. I wish I went there with a wod of cash and came out with several bags full, sadly I did not. I did however leave with a rad shirt from Little White Lies and a goody bag which contained snacks amoung other things but hey, the snacks are probably the best thing to come out of any goody bag...

We finished up browsing the rails, getting our make-up done and having our photos taken at the very cool Sunglass Hut photo booth and waited for the show to start. We planned to see the Peter Pilotto AW15 catwalk in the evening which is totally worth the wait, it was glorious! The shapes, the prints and the mother of all boots were everything for me. I'm still dreaming of those Nicholas Kirkwood for Peter Pilotto shoes that left me with serious boot envy. The show contained eligant dresses with a colourful twist and structured winter coats with incredible detaling covering every single inch. I loved seeing the models strutting down the catwalk with serious sass donning the designers creations for all of five minutes, it was an unreal five minutes that left me inspired to no end. I wish I could of seen more shows and stayed in the Fashion Week bubble for longer but it was a short and sweet visit for me and Kristina! I had such a great time and will defnitely attend more in the future weither it's Fashion Week or the weekends events, I'll be there.
