My Style: Day Three At London Fashion Week

OOTD LFW Day3 gap My Style: Day Three At London Fashion Week %tag

Day three and the sun has been shining all day, granted still not that warm, but I don’t mind shivering when it is bright. Once again, another look, another shade of pink – so we’ve had a bright pink jumper, bright pink accessories and today I went for my new Gap blazer which I picked up in the sale last weekend.

Considering a blazer is a wardrobe staple I only seem to have two very ill-fitted ones so I thought it was time to invest for fashion week as you can dress an outfit up or down with one and lots of my friends recommended Gap. When I saw this bright pink beauty I couldn’t resist, even more so when it was £20 off – serious bargain that I am sure to wear all-year round.

As the trim of the blazer is a dark grey I thought it would make the bright pink stand out even more if the rest of my outfit was charcoal grey and black – and I think this is one of my favourite looks for a while.

As you know if you follow me on Twitter I love jeans but like most people I struggle to find styles that fit and look flattering and a number of my followers answered my pleas for help and suggested Uniqlo, a shop I love for t-shirts but have never tried for denim, but I have seriously been missing out.

These dark grey beauties are from the super soft, super stretchy skinny range, and I can assure you they are exactly that, they are just so flattering and for a long time putting skinny jeans on didn’t make me feel instantly fat. Plus they are super long, I have them turned up as wearing with boots today, but in the summer I will actually be able to wear jeans with flats and not feel like I am showing half my leg off!!!

Finishing off my look is my trusty Osprey London bag, this is so perfect for fashion week – classic colour, classic design and fits everything from my iPad, tickets, make-up, chocolate, phone, diary, notepad, pens, etc, etc, in, as well as my Ice-Watch, which sadly has the wrong date on it, my Topshop ankle boots that I am literally wearing to death, and a new statement necklace from New Look.

LFW Day 1: My Style – An Oversized Bow and Bag

MyStyleDay1LFW6 LFW Day 1: My Style   An Oversized Bow and Bag %tag

Today has been a hectic day at London Fashion Week, started with my first show at 9am at Somerset House for Antoni & Alison’s return to the catwalk – followed by some gorgeous displays from past, former and current Fashion Fringe winner’s Jena.Theo, Fyodor Golan, and a great front row spot at Corrie Nielsen; as well as a magnificent display from the Bora Aksu army of models; beautiful tailored draping from Maria Grachvogel; a gorgeous collection from Jean-Pierre Braganza; and prints galore from Basso & Brooke. I promise more detailed show reports with pictures, I did however take more than 500 shots yesterday so please bare with me, but there were some amazing sights.

This fashion week I am also making a conscious effort to do style posts everyday and I am starting with a look that I thought was cute and centred around an oversized bow and bag. The bow formed part of my new River Island light pink tee, I just adore this chiffon bow, super cute and got lots of great comments. I paired my tee with a flirty skater skirt from New Look, a light pink belt from Forever 21 with laser-cut star detailing, and my trust Russell & Bromley patent brogues – I know flats on the first day, but they looked so cute with this outfit.

To finish off my look I carried my new vibrant red leather Osprey London bug bag that the brand sent me for Christmas, love the colour, love the size, I just love it!!!!

Last week, or maybe the week before that, sorry loosing track lately as I have been to so many events, I checked out the spring/summer 2012 collection from Forever 21. I think it is fair to say that the UK have embraced the American budget retailer, every time I go in the Oxford Street store it is crammed full of shoppers, and I hear that the Westfield Stratford store is even busier. Well trust me F21 fans you are going to love what is coming next season.

I know it is hard to think of spring attire when it is freezing but I loved so many pieces, from the sixties doll peter pan collars and the vibrant pop colours and the gorgeous retro Rivera chic.

Think primary colours, worn either as a block colour or paired together, yep colour-blocking isn’t going anywhere.

Wedding Style: Twitter Lovebird Dress

Wedding5 Wedding Style: Twitter Lovebird Dress %tag

Last night I went to a lovely wedding in Essex and it was such a fun event; great time with friends, bit of dancing, the most amazing wedding cake filled with profiterole and ended with a stop off for a McD banana milkshake!!

I have to admit I did stress slightly about what to wear, I totally forgot that the dress I was planning to wear I wore to the previous wedding with the same group of friends a couple of months back, so you can imagine my relief when I finally found this little beauty about an hour before we were meant to leave. Back in September the high street was filled with such amazing colourful dresses, it seems now that it is a little colder they’ve all gone, so I was so pleased to find the Twitter lovebirds at New Look.

I know black isn’t the best option for a wedding, but I was only going to the evening reception so I thought it would work and my birdies are kissing so the romance theme is definitely there!!! What I loved about this dress other than the fab print had to be the sheer puff sleeves and collar detailing as well as the fit – this was a great dress to relax and have fun in.

I finished off my look with a cute necklace from Forever 21, now all I need to do is find an exact replicate of that dress and I will be happy!!

I know weddings should be a time for statement heels, but I decided to go with my new go-to flats my patent brogues from Russell & Bromley, as they add a bit of glamour and are super comfortable. I am so glad I did as I was on my feet all night.

Bag Lust: Three Of My Must-Have Handbags

handbag Bag Lust: Three Of My Must Have Handbags %tag

Last week I went to Forever 21 *post coming soon on my buys* but after dreaming about a bag I stupidly didn’t buy I thought I would blog about the three bags that I completely lusting over. All three bags are so different, but all so me, and I have to buy them!!!

1. Embroidered Aztec Duffle Bag, Forever 21, £29.75

I picked this bag up about four times on my first visit to Forever 21’s new London store but for some reason I talked myself out of buying it. But come on what is not to love about this Aztec-inspired colourful duffle?? I love everything from the colour to the size of this bag, and that buckled front pocket is perfect for storing my train ticket, which I am always loosing in my bag!!

2. 14″ Pink Satchel, The Cambridge Satchel Company, £81

I have been wanting a satchel for a while, and I couldn’t decide between navy, a classic colour such as tan or this pink one, I think bright is the way to go. The Cambridge Satchel’s come in various sizes from 11″, which would make a great clutch, to 15″ perfect for a laptop, as well as various colours. What I also love is you can either have shoulder straps or backpack style, and you can get the satchel embossed – this pink beauty would look amazing with DWS *my initials* in silver lettering!!

3. Colour Block Thatcher Top Handle Bag, Oasis, £30

So as well as a fun casual bag and a funky satchel I also chose a vintage-inspired handbag from Oasis, which would complement any work outfit, and also reminds me of a Celine handbag. Great size, cute handle at the top, and I love turn locks. Classic in design and will go with everything.

Shop Her Style: Bip Ling In Forever 21

Bip Ling 2 Shop Her Style: Bip Ling In Forever 21 %tag

As the face of Forever 21 it is hardly surprising that Bip Ling worked the label for their launch party last week, but what is great is that you can steal her whole outfit for just over £50 *minus the shoes – Miu Miu’s for under £50 would have been amazing!*. Oh, and did I mention you don’t have to wait until next season to buy, you can buy Bip’s outfit now.

My favourite piece from this outfit has to be this crisp My Boyfriends Cotton Shirt, £19.80, perfectly matched with the Pleated Leather Shorts, £19.75, which look stunning in teal but also come in red, coffee and black. What I always find great about F21 has to be the accessories, and I love how Bip has finished off her look with this Leatherette Heart Handbag, £10.50, and a cute Lamé Bow Hairband, which is a bargain at £3.15.

It isn’t often you see a look for just over £50, and each piece would make great additions into any wardrobe; as you can never have too many boyfriend shirts, and everyone always need a cute bag.

Last week American retailer Forever 21 brought the spirit of California to the amazing space at the Old Sorting Office *better known I think as the Redbull Fashion Factory*. At lot of effort went into creating this hanger space into a cool Santa Monica Beach carnival, complete with its very own F21 Hollywood sign, Henna Tattoo Caravan, ice-cream truck, beach huts filled with pick n mix sweets and jewellery, a burger van, teepee tent bars, a mini carousel, and my favourite bit being the roller girls.

As well as a great bash there was also a hologram show, which was interesting to say the least, complete with retro cinema tickets we saw the latest Forever 21 on holographic models and it was a great show. I took a few snaps and I love how the models disappeared and the illusion of rain was very real.
