On the hottest day of 2010, with temperatures reaching 30 degrees, the England vs. Germany game and just general summery-ness being real highlights, I attended the Clothes Show. Although, I do wish the hottest day was yesterday when I was picnicing in Richmond Park and then went on to a BBQ and not whilst I was on public transport and inside, that did not stop me from having a truly brilliant day!
After stressing seriously about what I was going to wear, I managed to scrape up an outfit...
Dress -Vivienne Westwood
Leopard Print Socks - ?
Leopard Print Bag - Carvella
Shoes - Gap
My favourite thing about the Clothes Show is all the vintage stores, so these were our first port of call when we arrived. The first stall we arrived at I managed to pick up two pairs of shorts, for a bargin price of £24 (for both!?). Although they are both slightly large, this problem was easily solved with the sinching in of the waistband with the matching scarves they came with.
The only other purchase I made was this pair of vintage sunglasses, for a mere £8.50. I love the shape and the translucent frames and, hey, for £8.50, who wouldn't? I was tempted to get another pair but thought I had already bought two pairs of similar shorts... Did not really want to come back with two pairs of similar sunglasses, too!
I went up with my wonderful friends, some of whom you may already know from their blogs or from previous mention on here, who all looked fabulous... Rocking maxi and floral trends; I quite look the odd one out!
The highlight of the day was the actual Show. It was a fabulous catwalk; the theme this year being "Fashion From Around The World" where we enjoyed fashion for Japan, USA, Italy, France and, finally, the UK. It was presented by the gorgeous Jeff Brazier, who was definitely outshone by numerous male models... A couple of which we managed to get a sneaky picture with...
I also managed to accumulate six goody bags; four of which were from the Clothes Show, one from More Magazine and the sixth from some beer brand and was scouted by Select Model Management, which was a major suprise. I doubt anything will come of it, but it was very flattering though I think they would have been rather shocked when I took off my high shoes and only measured 5'5.5"! Ah well, it was a lovely day and I am happy with my purchases!
Only four weeks (well, I say only...) till the summer holidays and I am already counting down! It is rather depressing staring out of the stuffy classroom window at the beautiful summer days which I am wasting away sitting indoors in school... Meaning I am sitting outside in the sun at every possible opportunity!
