Save the best to last they always say, and rightly so. Day 3 was by
far the best day of London Fashion Week for me personally, as it was the
Topshop Unique A/W 15 show. The most sought after ticket during Fashion Week.
Come Day 2 of London Fashion Week my outfit choice took a different turn as i wanted to create more of a ladylike imagery. Totally opposite to my look on Day 1 I'm really into burgundy, i always have been, but my husband seems to hate the colour he describes it as the poorer end of the colour scale what does that even mean?
Fashion week is finally among us in London and Day 1 kicks off with lots of layering, layering and more layering. If you haven't been following NYFW street style then you've been missing out on lots of guess what? Layering from skirts over trousers (manrepeller)to wearing 3 jackets (Margaret Zhang) - Super cool looks, either they didn't pack enough clothes or they are on point with aw15 trend. I could just about feel the ice through my laptop to be honest whilst skimming through images, so with a little inspiration from New York i brought it to Somerset House.
It's really hard to find the right balance to look good and stay warm in this freezing weather but i must say I'm pretty thankful I'm in the UK and not in New York for NYFW this season as that was my initial plan- next season for sure. Honestly i feel like I'm there anyway, Danielle Bernstein from weworewhat is giving me all my NYFW front row scoop with her snap chats- what a babe!
Pure London, UK's leading fashion trade show which takes places twice a year mainly aimed at fashion buyers and retailers however they do a lot seminars and panel speakers from the fashion industry too, just before Christmas i was approached by Propeller Net which offered me an amazing opportunity to join them on their panel to share my expertise, experience and knowledge in regards to how retailers and brands can work better with fashion bloggers, i joined another well established blogger Navaz Batliwalla from disneyrollergirl.net it was a pleasure to meet her as she's has been running her blog for 8 years now- Inspiration or what?
Throw a pair of white sneakers on- in my case my Adidas Superstar trainers and grab a pair of boyfriend fit jeans to get that off-duty look. A small tip when you're wearing Double Denim make sure you wear a white top underneath as it breaks up the different shades of blue and gives your oversized Denim Jacket a fresh and modern take.
When Givenchy announced Julia Roberts as the face of their Spring '15 campaign in a powerful suit i knew my love for the suit set grew fonder, and instead of picking up my usual black set my instincts went straight to this deep green, SS15 trend reports the cigarette suit style to be back which i couldn't be happier about, it's very masculine which compliments my style perfect for the office or meetings.
What shall i wear to work? If you work in an office based environment you probably tend to ask yourself that question a lot- i know i do. I seem to struggle when it comes to dressing my self for work, I don't know if it's got anything to do with the early wake up calls or because I'm not very organised and don't lay my outfit out the evening before, maybe if i was more organised in that sense it would save me battling with hangers at 6am in the dark.
