When it comes to fashion week dressing I do kind of panic, I’m not a sample size, so no loans for me, I’m kind of awkward, don’t worry I know I am, and I’m not really keen on dressing outside my comfort zone, but that doesn’t mean I don’t make a little more of an effort when London Fashion Week comes around. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen all my looks, but I did a little mini-photo shoot each day and over the next few weeks I’m going to show you all my looks in more detail, starting with my favourite, day 1, my gothic fairy princess look inspired by favourite up-and-coming British designer, Molly Goddard.
You see, I’m a little obsessed with tulle, frills and ruffles, you might remember last fashion week I also rocked a tulle skirt, it was a wonderful tiered beauty, this time, I decided to opt for a little colour, a gorgeous pale pink, that’s a little simpler, possibly a little more girlie, and definitely fitted with my slightly edgy LFW vibe. First off, how Molly Goddard is this skirt, seriously too good, plus it was only £22.99 that’s what a call a fashion week bargain, and trust me I’ll be wearing this beauty all winter long.
So, I was a little worried I couldn’t pull off this skirt, mainly because of the lighter hue, my tulle is normally, black, black and little more black, but when I spotted this midi skirt I couldn’t resist it. All of could think of how Molly Goddard it was, and as I dream of one day owning one of her tulle midi dresses I thought this would be perfect. To make this colour more my own style I decided to opt for darker, edgier styling, so I went for these gorgeous and waterproof Emu Australia boots and the waterproofing was needed as of course it rained, and decided to pair with a black tee and nip it in at the waist with a studded belt. If it had been a little warmer I would have stopped there, but of course, London’s changeable weather left me a little chilly, so I added this cute sleeveless Boohoo jacket, which I think worked perfectly.
The final touch to this look was the pop of red, there’s something about pale pink and red that I love, and this Zara bag, which FYI was another bargain it was only £15, was the perfect size, colour and I loved the bug detailing and gold chain. I still can’t believe that this was only £15, bargain and definitely doesn’t look that cheap. I have, to be honest, I always see amazing Zara finds on other bloggers style posts and I never seem to have much luck and then I find two in one visit. Here’s hoping my Zara luck runs all season!!!
So, do you love the skirt but wondering how else you could wear it for winter? Well, how about wearing over jeans, or over a floral printed midi dress, with that sheer panel it will look so cool, or how about adding a chunky sweater and knitted tights. I can’t wait to experiment with a few looks over the winter, which of course I will share with you guys.
