The Dreaded LFW
You must be fed up of all the London Fashion Week talk by now, right? I know I am. Truth be told, I have a bit of a love/hate affair with the whole thing. I love getting the chance to go and see the shows of brands that I’m passionate about, but I’m not so enamoured with the endless street style photographers looking you up and down to deem whether you’re worthy or not, all the running around and politics of it all. But still, it’s a force that can’t be ignored, and despite only attending one show this season, I came out with hundreds of pictures that not even the most seasoned of bloggers could edit down concisely. So here we have a mini mash up of pictures from Day 3.
I wore a silky top and fluffy skirt from Romwe, and shoes from Urban Outfitters, but don’t be fooled, this ensemble was covered up with a big black coat for rest of the day, as I’ve become attached to my appendages which certainly would have frozen off had I taken a more fashionable approach! I have no idea how the girls wandering around bare legged coped!
The only show that I went to this season was Topshop Unique. Whilst their utility inspired looks weren’t really my bag, I can appreciate that it was one of their strongest collections yet. I saw more than a hint of Alexa Chung in some of the looks, which can never be a bad thing – if I was 2 stone lighter and 4 inches taller, I’d be in that velvet jumpsuit like a flash. The front row at Unique was nearly as impressive as the collection – I tried snapping the real Alexa over the shoulders of a crowd of photographers.
You’ll also spot Jameela interviewing Jade Williams, or Sunday Girl, who is my new style crush. If you don’t know her, get Googling, she wears a two-piece perfectly!
The reason I come away with hundreds of photographs at fashion week is because of all the beautiful people! I have to stop hanging around with such stylish ladies because it’s doing my hard-drive no good! But in all seriousness,chatting with my favourite bloggers is the best bit about fashion week. Above you’ll spot Jen, Sandra and Shini (who took the pictures of me above, thank you!) who I had to capture in the golden light after the Topshop show. See you again in 6 months, Somerset House! x
