‘Tis the Season: Holiday!

Holiday time! Off to celebrate a friend’s birthday! Whoop Whoop…

But before any celebration can take place, one must first pack…ewww the worse part of going on holiday. Why do I hate this part so much?! Hmmm! The problem isn’t the fact that I don’t know what to pack (or even over-pack like most people) I’m actually quite organised, I usually prepare my outfits (day, evening and beachwear) at least a week before travelling, the problem is I don’t enjoy physically putting the clothes into the case. Does anyone else have this problem?! So random!

Anyhow with all my clothes safely packed in my suitcase I can now go off and enjoy my first ever all-inclusive holiday to Turkey! #SoExcited

Lushness of the Week: Leather!

So everyone is rocking out in their black skinny leather trouser…meanwhile I’m over here strutting my stuff in these beige loose fitting leather trousers.

So in love with these leather trousers I recently purchased from the Zara sale. Lushness! Leather trousers are a great way to dress-up in a simple understated way.

My London Fashion Week…

My ‘Fashion’ week started on Thursday 11th September at the GQ style night on Carnaby Street.

IMG_20140911_17111120140911_175803

The next of couple of days consisted of doing a bit of people watching (one of my favourite things to do). I love people watching not just for fashion week but all year round but there is something about Somerset House during fashion week that makes people watching even more enjoyable (oh that sounds somewhat creepy doesn’t it?!).

Monday…I attended the BloggersLoveLFW event which took place at the Penthouse, Leicester square! It was a fantastic evening as I got to meet some fabulous new brands as well as take home loads of wonderful goodies on offer which I have worn throughout the week.

and this necklace by Nadia Minkoff

Tuesday was rest day from London Fashion Week events but the topic was still on fashion. I went to the Google offices to talk how google can help your eCommerce business within the fashion industry. This event was organised by the guys from Fashion Forum LDN

Hump day Wednesday, I was invited to an exclusive party organised by French Connection with Troy the Magician being the guest of honour The evening was fabulous and consisted of champagne, loads of sweet treats and a DJ playing the finest tunes with myself and a few of the other guests strutting our stuff to Candy by Cameo…check out the song here (its hard not to dance when this song comes on…ha).

On to Thursday….ah Thursday was a long but enjoyable day. I attended a total of five events on this day, some I was invited to and some I randomly stumbled upon.

First up was breakfast at Mango talking careers and viewing the latest collection.

For me fashion is more than how we look, I love hearing the story behind the brand. So you can imagine my excitement when I was invited to watch a presentation on the current collaboration G-Star Raw has with Pharrell Williams. A collaboration in which Pharrell himself initiated (this man does not only look great at 41 but is also a genius).  The collaboration ‘Raw for the Oceans’…wait for it….Denim made from recycled plastic bottles. Click here to see what it is all about! What a fab idea?!

After that it was off to Joy Everley – Fine Jewellers 16th Birthday where I enjoyed cocktails and cupcakes. The jewellery range is inspired from the creators’ own desire to wear unusual, fresh and enhancing jewellery design incorporating precious metals and stones. Absolutely loved the collection!

Next I slipped into an art gallary!

Final event the day ended with a trip to the House of Fraser beauty event, as well as discounts on various beauty products the evening also consisted of cocktails and champagne as well as Music from Arize, an up and coming girl band who has recently appeared on the xfactor.

Friday….I enjoyed a Q&A session with Jasmine Guinness, model turned designer answered an arrany questions including ‘what is your style day-to-day?’ Jasmine said “Jeans and trainers due to working in a toy shop and in the evening I like dressing up in a nice dress”. Jasmine also said she likes to mix high street with designer as it is always good to mix things up.

Kate Moss for Topshop

Kate Moss is back with her first Topshop collection in 4 years and I was there to witness the craziness that went down on launch day, I’m pretty sure the collection sold out within minutes.

I couldn’t say wholeheartedly that I loved the collection as some of the pieces appeared to be a little dated with Kate probably wearing the pieces when she did her last collection …(eeek sorry KateMoss/Topshop lovers). However, I don’t want to be a complete debbie downer as I did see a couple of show-stopping pieces, like this sequin dress.                                                          20140429_184539

You can definitely see the influence of Kate Moss in the collection, it has that festival/holiday/party vibe going on.

 

 

London Fashion Week 2014 #LFW

For those who love fashion and people watching Somerset House is the place to be during London Fashion Week.

Winter was in full swing during some parts of today with it being cold, wet and windy but this did not stop those venturing out to be among the who’s who of the fashion world.

I love me some Blackspade…

Good underwear is everything!

Underwear sits against your skin all day long, therefore it should feel and be comfortable. The quality of the fabric is at the top of my agenda when purchasing new underwear, so you can imagine by excitement when I came across new brand Blackspade. Oh ladies the smoothness of the fabric is super lush!

The underwear is designed to deliver that barely-there feeling, meaning you can wear fabulous dresses without the thought of irritating underwear.

Blackspade who is owned by a company who also manufactures lingerie for Hugo Boss, offers high quality cotton briefs and camisoles at affordable prices. The snug fit is perfect for the current winter season. You can’t go wrong really!

In order to look fabulous, you have to feel fabulous! The key to underwear is the simplicity and the fit. Think of it as basic wear that boosts your confidence.

How to work sequins…

I love me some sequins! I have sequin dresses, tops and trousers and I love them all. Check out this top from Topshop.

Sequins never get old and can be worn all year round if you can master the understated base of the outfit.  Minimal colours and accessories are required to ensure you are the centre of attention and not the sequins themselves. This goes for heels as well, an understated LBD is more than enough to make you stand out. It’s a balancing act between sophistication and sheer devil-may-care dressing.
