"THE WAY YOU MOVE SO SCANDALOUS".

Listening to: Scandalous- Alesha Dixon.

As I had mentioned- on Saturday I went to the Look Show in the beautiful setting of the Royal Courts of Justice. Really its was a spectacular setting to have a catwalk show- high ceilings, circular staircases BEAUTIFUL!

I spent the day with my older sister Gemma and it was a blast. A lovely day full of sisterly chatting, mid-show entertainment courtesy of Alesha Dixon (que me and Gemma singing) and an excellent little goody-bag. The down side- we started the day with a glass of wine at 12:30 in All Bar One, then the Champagne and cocktails at the Look Show, plus a glass of wine in the pub and table (as the bartender told us) that Kelly Brook had just left, and meeting the rest of my family for a few more glasses of wine. I STILL feel rough. But it was worth it.

As a warning now- there is going to be a lot of photos and I haven't quite got the hang of using my new camera so they aren't the best, but there are some amazing looks in stores for A/W. The 'looks' as far as I can tell is texture black- faux leather, sequins, velvet and fur, gold everywhere, cigarette style trousers, tartan and doogtooth, oxblood, and faux fur. I love A/W and the catwalk was fantastic.

New Look

New Look for me was ALL about the prints- tartan and that amazing dogtooth scarf. Everything was so casual, layered and wearable. For me New Look had the best casual looks on the high street. A massive part of me wants to buy those tartan creepers, and has the usual A/W colours. New Look looks like the place to go for casual knits to throw over jeans and leggings.

 Uniqlo
Uniglo is a shop I have never shopped in before, and to be honest the website homepage nearly turned me away- but stick it out for this collection. The beautiful camel coat was the best first impression down the runway, and I love the look of the layered flannel shirts, which with the big grunge influence in the S/S we are all likely to have in out wardrobe (or our boyfriends). Great layering.

Next
Next for me has always been a bit well... dull. The sort of things even my mother wouldn't wear. But I have to say I love this collection. The cigarette trousers are looking like the trousers of A/W and Next has some amazing examples, especially the in this seasons colour oxblood. Also I love the cute 60's feel- which after seeing a snippet of 2013 S/S I think is very inspired.







Every season I have that hard task on the high street weather I prefer Topshop or River Island. This season it is easily River Island! Its a faux leather heaven! Mixing last seasons trends of galaxy and neon but bringing them well up to date. Can somebody please buy me these faux leather trousers? And these oxblood velvet pair? After seeing this collection I want to live in a River Island store, and seriously considering buying a stole to wrap round the collars of all my coats.

Primark





Say what you like about Primark- after working in customer services for 3 years I will always have the utmost respect for the workers and the clothes. Countless times I would see clothing sold in Primark for a couple of pounds being sold for a lot more in Topshop or New look ect. But Primark has clearly upped their game. Galaxy dresses and tops, oxblood a plenty, leather its amazing. Pop into a store and be pleasantly surprised.

Style search
here are the looks from the Look Magazine style search.
Sultana Malik- the lace and oxblood shirt is amazing!
Emma Hill- leather trousers and cobalt  blue top, YES!
Sandra Tang- Beautiful navy dress, lace and a lovely oriental feel. I wish I had a fancy do to go to to wear this dress.
Caroline Burke- I love the colour in this dog tooth jumper, and the green autumn skirt.

Andreea Pancuic- Beautiful Cigarette trousers! Great idea of the gold and the gothic style jumper. A versatile look.

Remi Capone- Very casual, I love the jumper but this is my least favourite look from the style search.

Warehouse




Warehouse is another shop I don't tend to shop in, mostly because its just a little too expensive for me. But the long biker coat is very cool, as are the gold jeans. But in general I'm not that impressed.

M&S




Doogtooth, fur, oxblood AND once again those amazing gold cigarette trousers. Marks has got in going on. I love the use of the umbrella for added style- especially this doogtooth one, and I really REALLY want this wrap!

Mango



The Kate Moss for Mango collection is 10000 times better than her collection for Topshop- all the clothes really feel like Kate had a hand is designing them. Tuxedo jackets, velvet, the whole androgynous vibe- fantastic. I can easily see many pay packets going on this collection. My fav pieces have to be the velvet trousers and jacket.

Boohoo

I loved the look Boohoo has shown- its something about the gold and black I love.

She Likes

Beautiful green dress from She Likes.

Selfish: Forever Unique

Very sports Laux meets rock and roll- the model  practically ran down the catwalk with all the attitude the outfit gave her.

Simply Be

Well done to the stylists for making the one plus size model in the one plus size store look extremely frumpy. The jacket looks like a dressing gown! There is 1000 better looks that can be created with their A/W collection so I urge you not to take this first awful impression and check the site out. Its important to note that she did walk down the catwalk in a lot of the other collections (obviously not all the models walked down every collection) and she looked fantastic!

Very.co.uk

That fur coat! AMAZING!!!

A Wear

Again can someone please buy me a massive fur collar i can attack to all my clothing?

La Redoute

Beautiful and chic look- fantastic tartan look.

Quiz

Very nice dress, not that impressive but you can never go wrong with a navy maxi.

Fashion Union

An outfit with wedge heeled creepers! What is not to love?


The whole show was fantastic! I loved it as did Gemma and I've come back with loads of ideas about my most loved season. My 3 favourite looks have to be from New Look, River Island and Boohoo (my fav online store).



I love this Look from New Look. The Tartan skirt is fantastic- and I am in love with the print contrast with he Dogtooth shirt. This is amazing and I can see myself rocking this look (probably with slightly different shoes and jacket) but A great look.


 Oh my god what is not to LOVE about this outfit. Please somebody anybody buy me those faux leather fingerless gloves! and the sleeveless jacket. Gah why doesn't money grow on trees!



Boohoo was the look I was most looking forward to seeing- and they did not let me down. Gold looks like it is going to be every where this season- and the textured gold skirt (I'm not sure if the one i found is exactly the same) is beautiful. Add a petticoat underneath to get that catwalk volume and a tailored jacket, with plain black shoes to make that skirt really stand out. Fantastic!

Hope you read through all of that!

  17. THANK YOU for brilliant brilliant post! I was hooked!

    I am loving New Look and Primark collections. I am drooling for the dogtooth scarf, I have been looking for dogtooth printed skirt but waiting for right one to buy! Patience is virtue ;-) I feel autumn is the right time to purchase a mean good pair of creepers, but in dilemma in which colours EEP! Tartan one looks well lushh. I loove Love Label's Patchwork Faux Fur Coat too, seem fun to wear.

  23. Ooh, looks like you had a great time at the Look fashion show!
    I have to admit, I love New Look's pieces in your pictures, they always get A/W so on-point for me. Next's was quite pleasantly surprising - still a little dull, but some of the pieces (i.e. that gorgeous lace skirt) look incredible!
