I find it a constant mission trying to master the art of layering, sometimes it works, like here, **I hope**, and other’s have failed miserably, but I’m so happy that this maxi dress over jeans worked as I loved wearing this to London Fashion Week. Day 2 was a little colder so this look was perfect, it is a great autumnal style, you get to wear that gorgeous maxi shirt dress you’ve loved wearing over the summer a little longer by just adding a pair of jeans or if you’re feeling brave why not go for leather leggings.

Do you remember when I promised more videos? Well, I decided to do something a little different for my fashion week content and do a vlog, I know get me. One of the most frequently asked questions is “what do you get up to at fashion week?”, and they always answer it themselves with “I bet it is so glamourous”, well, it isn’t, it is a little crazy, always rushing between shows, but I can’t deny that it is always so much fun.

Set in a trashy Las Vegas motel, Chilean designer Gabriel Vielma behind Velma London presented a collection inspired by the golden age in the 50s and 60s.
