If you follow me on Twitter, you might have realised that i’ve been Tweeting more frequently in past week or so, and this is because the lovely 3MobileBuzz gave me a phone that actually has internet capabilities to try out for a few weeks. I always feel left out at these events, and have to catch up on my tweets when I get home but having a phone less than 3 years old is a godsend! I was lucky enough to receive the HTC Hero, which i’ve found extremely simple to use and kind of fallen in love with..I don’t want to give it back!
Not only that, they took me and my looovely competition winner, Katie, along to London Fashion Weekend with a bunch of other fabulous bloggers. Here is how our day looked…
shy bloggers – Katie with Frankie from Swell Vintage.
Natasha with her morning coffee – it was an early start!
Fiona of Save Our Shoes with her new Luella clutch (..and INQ Chat, of course)
It’s lucky we did get there early because it meant that we could get to the good stuff first – we saw Luella on the list of designers selling at the event and bolted there straight away, not stopping to look at anything else on the way – I knew if I was going to be spending money on anything that day it would be some of Luella’s last pieces. Fiona managed to get the ribbon clutch above for a mere £40, reduced from £900-and-something – a huge bargain! I managed to get my hands on a few bargains too…oops! I was never any good at saving money..
London Fashion Weekend is a great way to get hold of some bargain designer clothing, but it got ridiculously busy later in the day, so I suggest starting early to find all the good bits!
Katie with Amy from Wolf Whistle
Natasha and her winner, Lindsey
We were also treated to the London Fashion Weekend catwalk, which highlighted new trends, showcased some vintage clothing and we also got to see the entire Betty Jackson Collection. Of course, as an army of bloggers with phones in our hands, we didn’t take the whole thing entirely seriously and tweeted throughout. There was some lovely clothing though, if you were there on Saturday too and heard very audible gasps and “oooohs” coming from the back row, that was us..!
Now I know all too well that you love an outfit post, and as I was the one with the camera in my hand (and sadly no boyfriend around to take my photo!), I decided that i’d post my competition winner, Katie’s outfit instead because I was in love with it – and I hope you are too! Her amazing rhinoceros playsuit, schoolgirl shoes and satchel are all vintage, and she finished off the look with a bright red ribbon in her hair! I knew straight away that she was a reader of my blog, and it turned out we have an awful lot in common! Check out her blog here. I bet you’re all this well dressed, right?!
I certainly made some lovely new friends on my day out to London Fashion Weekend, and hopefully this means i’ll provide you with some fabulous new reading material too..here are their blogs:
