When it comes to making a designer purchase I always seem to be more comfortable when it comes to handbags. For me, they make the investment worthwhile over clothing, which I’m more likely to grow out of or lose interest in. I find it you stick to classic shapes in a quality leather you will be able to use for years to come, and at the moment, I can’t help but crush over crossbody designer bags, I think it’s because they literally go with everything and I love the way they casually drape over an outfit, they are just so
London Fashion Week feels so long ago now, we’ve already had Milan and now the fashion pack is in Paris, but I think once you scroll down and see this post you will agree it was worth the wait, as for spring/summer 2016, Sophia Webster showcased her new #CrazySexyNautiCool collection in a fantasy mermaid launderette set-up.

Think speed cameras, chevrons, highway code symbols, reflective surfaces, as well as a whole raft of service-station references from Little Chef to a cute Eddie Stobart lorry.
Fashion week isn’t just for the luxury designers to show off their collections anymore, I love that some high street fashion brands are taking the plunge and placing their products alongside that of Mulberry, Burberry and the likes, and AllSaints really impressed me with their clever presentation, which was styled to perfection, and left me wanting absolutely everything come autumn/winter!
