My Style: Day Three At London Fashion Week


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

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!!!!

My Style Details:

I love this bow.

Stars do belong at LFW!!!

This bag is the perfect LFW bag – fits my camera, make-up, purse, spare camera, phone, sweeties, schedule, tickets, you name it there is room in this bag for it. I can also fit my laptop in it as well but I left it home today.

Well every outfit needs a little shine now doesn’t it!!!

**Thanks to Abi and Ella for talking my picture, now if only I could utilise all those hours of watching America’s Next Top Model to my advantage**

In Pictures: Forever 21 SS12 Press Preview

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.

60s Doll

Cute prints, girlie lace, collars galore and gorgeous pastel colours.

Pop & Block

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

Retro Riviera 

With its 20s/30s beachwear influences there are chic bold and tailored pieces mixed in with stripes and polka dot prints.

Japanese Garden

The capsule line was the most fun I just loved the colours, the kimono sleeves, the large floral prints and seriously these mannequins make me want a black bob!!!


As always Forever 21 really has delivered on its jewellery, I find it one of the sections I most enjoy visiting when I go in Forever 21 and I want all the key pieces.

Wedding Style: Twitter Lovebird Dress

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.
