Last Sunday I was fortunate to win two tickets for London Fashion Weekend from the amazing Georgina (who's just bought a new domain name - georginadoes.co.uk- which I LOVE). They could not have came at a better time.
Although it was recently my sisters wedding it's been a bit of a rough time recently both for me and my best friend April who I took. So this day out was the perfect pick me up. We also realised how great a pair we were for this sort of thing. We have a similar fashion sense and you can see her hands a lot in my photos, plus she's also an inspiring photographer (so some awesome ootd photos have occurred), and just starting out blogging and making her own jewellery :) we also watched the trend catwalk on the Vodaphone live screen and chatted the while way through which I loved- it's all about sharing ideas. Plus I introduced her to Somerset house which is stunning!
The trend catwalk is the only thing I've not got photos of- it's hard to get good ones of a screen, but there will be a few trend posts up (I loved the "Pretty in Pink" trend despite my usual aversion to pink).
Below are a few snaps of what I liked for sale- I wish I wasn't so broke last week as I feel in love with pretty much every accessory brand I would have cane home with about 80 rings, 5 headscarves and a bag for sure. Plus a mortgage for the shoes I fell in love with. Fortunately neither of us could fit in the clothes but they were inspiring non the less.
Charlotte Taylor had the best spot at LFWend, straight through the door of the West wing. Her prints are amazing- this parrot one is my favourite and put us in the mood to discuss holiday plans.
Blond + Ginger collection was so effortless and timeless, this red leather collared dress really caught my eye :)
Ukulele is a very playful brand and possibly my favourite one I saw, I love the caged Alice dress (I can image it hanging in my wardrobe) and the beautiful pearly denim jacket. Very grunge
House of Harlow (which shares the name of my home town) had the best sunglasses.
Zoe Jordan collection was a great mix of boyish and clan elegant lines. Plus look at those exposed shoulders.
From everything House of Holland had to offer my favourite was these nails. I already spotted them at the Fashion Monitor Style Lounge but I fell in love again. Me ans April spent a more than reasonable amount of time admiring them, our favourite being between these monster face ones if these monotone textured ones.
Miista shoes are unbelievable. There so masculine and beautiful, and have this post war vibe about them. There was a lot to choose from but these contrast tip boots really caught our eye.
I always though I was more of a big bag girl but these small shoulder bags by Meli Melo changed my mind. Look at this perfect leopard print number and the fringed beige one.
Kat Maconies collection was amazing, I honestly wanted 80% of it but these shiny heels are in a league of there own! They cone in a few colours (look at the purple pair)!
Seven Boot Lane
The only thing I can say about Seven Boot Lane I'd they are ankle boot heaven. If your looking for a pair go to the first.
I've definitely noticed M&S have used their game as of late, not only are they now my go to store for bras but their coat section is unbelievable. Their London Calling collection was fantastic, monotone and bright reds (like these fantastic boots) plus a mix of tartan, leather, soft fabrics and faux fur.
I didn't realise that Halo & co specialise in bridal wear until writing this post, now I want to get married. They have a wide range but these skull necklaces and faux fur collar are my favourite.
Maria Francesca Pepe creates such cool avant garde pieces her collection was surrounded by people (so it was hard getting photos) but how cute is this ring?
Handmade wooden sunglasses- how Cool are these!
I've become addicted to headscarves all over again and Emma Shipley has THE best prints ever!
I asked the question (that apparently everyone had asked) are these real pigeon feet? They're not they're cast from a mould but look how Cool this ring is! Her whole collection in UNBELIEVABLE!
Jessica Russel Flings illustrations are amazing- this make up bag is stunning.
My Flash Trash
My Flash Trash is a brand I've seen buy a from for a while, but I like more and more every time I see it. I love these monkey and eye rings.
Wow. Everything looked fantastic and again it was hard photography wise because the collection was crowded with people. Headbands, combs and crown galore.
As a special treat (fir me ans April anyway) Maybelline and Tony and Guy both had areas demonstrating the trends catwalk looks I can't wait to recreate. All the staff were amazingly friendly and chatted to us fir ages, even when we walked round for a few hours and returned for April's nail appointment (the curse of working in healthcare meant I couldn't have them done) .
Don't we both look happy.
