Postcards from LFW

Thursday, 5 October 2017

Hello hello, long time no speak! Apologies for taking so long to get another post up on here... It's been one of those summers; the kind where you need to step back and focus on other priorities. I moved flat at the end of August, followed by a lovely 10-day trip to Spain and have been doing a bit of juggling with some projects and not to forget my career too. After a manic few months and some big decisions to make, I'm back, and what better way to start than with London Fashion Week...

Crazy doesn't even begin to cover what going to London Fashion Week is really like. Some people love it, others hate it but my stance is that it's a relatively short period twice a year where you get to celebrate the industry and have a bit of fun! I don't tend to take things too seriously, especially when it comes to fashion. I always head to The Apartment to hang out and meet new bloggers, it's a chance to network with likeminded people and discover new brands. The shows and presentations are great too - but having only attended for two days this season I only had time for a small handful (which is probably enough for me, I'm not sure I could handle the full five days anymore!) As much as I adore the theatrical presence of the huge shows and designers, I've discovered that it's discovering emerging talent I enjoy the most - Edeline Lee's collection was fantastic, totally wearable and extremely elegant.

Now, onto the outfits. For day one, I chose a head-to-toe seventies inspired look, there's no denying that it's my favourite decade of fashion. After pining after the dusty pink Isabel Marant corduroy trousers, I found a wide leg pair in Mango - my absoloute go-to brand at the moment (for price + quality). I paired them with some of last season's Mango snakeskin heeled boots (to be honest, they were the only pair that stopped the trousers from touching the ground!) and a cotton ruffle blouse from Zara, which I tucked in and then chucked over a faux fur from Whistles (not pictured) to glam it all up a notch.

For day two, I decided to tone it down with some Topshop denim from The Apartment (the cropped wide legs are amazing!), a simple black tee, western chelsea boots and a khaki trench coat. Not to forget the corduroy baker boy hat (how could either looks not incorporate corduroy in some way or another?!)
