LFW Day 5- What I Wore

Coat- H&M (old similar here), Dress- Won Hundred c/o Urban Outfitters, Boots-  c/o Cat Footwear
The final post from my LFW series and these are my fave shots to date, isn't Portia just bloody spiffing!
Sometimes I think I dream up outfits in my sleep, I knew I wanted to rock this Won Hundred dress from Urban Outfitters but I just didn't know what to style it with. As I woke on Tuesday morning something told me to pop on my Cat boots with it, a combination that I personally love. I love the different proportions of the look with the loose silk dress, long-line duster coat and chunky black boots. It's a look i'm excited to rock again; thats how you know you're on to a winner.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my LFW looks and reviews, i'd love to know what your thoughts are; which your fave look was etc etc.

London Fashion Week is over for another season and I for one am shattered. It was my best one to date spent with incredible ladies and surrounded by so much inspiration... roll on February!

LFW Day 4- What I Wore

Sweater- c/o Baum Und Pferdgarten, Jeans- c/o ASOS, Watch- c/o Shore Projects, Bag- c/o Urban Outfitters, Shoes- Zara (sale similar here)
Monday arrived bright and early and I headed down to Somerset house to meet the gorgeous Portia who kindly agreed to snap my outfit for me, just how beautiful are these shots, she is such a talented little one!

I was only about for half of the day before heading to work, which I was more than thankful for, sitting down for a few hours sounded like my idea of perfection after the busy weekend I had had.

I headed to the Burberry flagship store to watch a live streaming of the famous show. I was seriously, seriously impressed with the fun and fresh update Christopher Bailey had given Burberry for the summer season. It was so fun to see XXL sequins, fluffy trimmed fitted denim jackets and multi-coloured trainers donning the catwalk, so unexpected yet so amazing. I'm glad Burberry stuck to some traditions though with the final walk being awash with the most stunning trench coats and led by the beautiful Suki Waterhouse.

Another day of LFW done... phew, this daily blogging lark is tough!

Palmer//Harding S/S15 Presentation

So as I mentioned in yesterdays blog post, Sunday called for an early finish but not before checking out the Palmer Harding presentation in a beautiful chapel at Lincoln Inns. A simply stunning location for a simply stunning collection. I absolutely adore the sheers and neutrals contrasted with hot pinks and buttery leathers and some pretty fabulous shoes, now do you see what I was talking about?

LFW DAY 3- What I Wore

Top- c/o ASOS, Trousers- c/o ASOS, Shoes- Zara (sale similar here), Bag- c/o Urban Outfitters, Sunglasses- Marc Jacobs via Red Hot Sunglasses
Day 3 was thankfully much quieter for us, a later 12:30 start which was much needed thanks to the amazing Lulu Guinness party the evening before. We had so much fun but a slight lie in was definitely on the cards.

Unfortunately, due to my shoe boots from the previous day my original choice of footwear was no longer physically wearable. My feet were aching so badly so I opted for my sale bargain mules from Zara with a monochrome ensemble. Really though, the look is made by these incredible Marc Jacobs sunglasses from Red Hot Sunglasses and Rodnik the brand Snoopy bag from Urban Outfitters, sometimes it's all in the smaller details.

First up we headed to the Lincoln Inns Chapel, the most beautiful of locations that hosted the Palmer Harding presentation and oh how perfect it was. Sheers, hot pinks, buttery leather jackets and the most amazing shoes that I can only describe as those scuba shoes you wear when you go in the sea on holiday(?) yet these were made from a gorgeous silver mesh with lots of embellishments; they'll be a review to follow tomorrow morning so you can see exactly what I mean.

We then headed to fashion scout for more shows and presentations then made a sharp exit home for around 3pm. Nandos, jim jams and a nap on the sofa was how I spent my Sunday evening and it couldn't have been more perfect... i'm so fashun.

Antipodium S/S15

After Orla Kiely on Saturday morning we jumped in an Uber taxi (an absolute lifesaver might I add for fashion week particularly when the Northern Line is conveniently not running...pfft) and headed to the Antipodium presentation. A wonderfully androgynous mix of masculine shapes combined with girlie pastels and prints. My personal favourites were the pinstripe two pieces, salmon pink bomber jackets and the powder blue suit above.

It was my first time at Antipodium, a brand I have loved for as long as I can remember and it was so exciting to be a part of it. The models were super strange yet beautiful looking, with the epitome in bed-head hair and green eye shadow.

Muses included a number of actresses, characters and famous vixens; Antipodiums "Women on a Mission" collection was also inspired by the incredible David Bowie in Life on Mars and the twins from The Shining, if thats not a recipe for success than I simply don't know what is.
