LFWeekend.

After jealously lusting after other bloggers who told of their time at London Fashion Week, it was finally time for the likes of myself to take a sneak peek into the fashion industry: thank goodness it's Friday, London Fashion Weekend commences. Having never been before - to either Somerset House or London Fashion Weekend - I was first thoroughly impressed by the beautiful venue and secondly by the fashion on offer and the glamorous gals: you could certainly tell you were at a fashion event as everyone was just far more groomed and made a little bit more of an effort, much to my preference, I must admit! So, how was I to keep up to these on-trend, stylish and fabulous street-style photos I have seen all over the blogs this week? I had been planning on wearing my new block colour dress from H&M... But what with? I always find this sort of mid-season slightly difficult to dress/buy for and felt I needed to mix it with some more A/W pieces: my mother's Fenn Wright Manson black duck feather jacket would do the trick perfectly, along with some pale pink tights, black platforms, black eyeliner and a beehive as big as it would go. Yes, I may have missed the decade of the moment by a good ten years, but 60s is timeless..




Then we bumped into girls who had to leave before their 2pm catwalk, so we kindly took those tickets of their hands for them and saw Bora Aksu and Mark Fast's S/S11 collections. Along with two trend compilations, namely Swan Vesta and Lady Brights. I was slightly more struck by Mark Fast's collection, especially the final fringed dress - and also the shorter, swing version - displayed by the astonishingly tall and slender model. I won't really say any more, just urge you to read this article, because it does actually bring to life some very real truths, I feel, perhaps. Nevertheless, the collection was quite insane with such heavy, fine fringing and massive platforms.





And finally, I purchased a clutch. £45 to £5. Absolute bargin babaaay, with perfect colours for Spring.

Great dress, where did you get it ? :)

Izzy said...

Oh my goodness, you look AMAZING. I love your beehive, how do you do it? Mine always fail, and fall down after 5 mins after being up -with hairspray. Looks like a fabulous day. Plus I know the jealousy over fellow teen blogger visiting LFW.

Moniek said...

Love your blog, so following back!

Victoria Grout said...

Ah, I would have so loved to be there, and it amazes me how you got your hair that high!
Oh and with the picture size thing, if you go to edit the HTML of your blog post, you can change the size of the image by making the width of it the same as the width of your main column. You can check this by going to the html code of your blog design, and finding "#main-wrapper". To make the height even, you can either play around with it to see what looks best or (as i did) find the ratio of the height/width and transfer it to the width of your column.

aha that is so long-winded and i don't even know if any of it makes sense, just let me know if it works or if you have no idea what i'm talking about haha
