Missguided striped culottes

It’s that time again people – no, not that time – when the fashionista’s (can we just take a moment to gag over how cringe that word is?) of the world come out in full force and all of a sudden, you can’t escape it for love nor money… it’s London fashion week time. Now, I spoke about my thoughts on LFW last season, here, and not much has really changed if I’m honest.

I say this with trepidation because I’m very aware that lots of bloggers don’t get the opportunity to experience fashion week, and I’m grateful that I have the chance to, I really am. I just have to be honest in that it’s not something that I hugely look forward to. Fashion week for a lot of bloggers = running around between shows, blisters on feet and a hell of a lot of waiting outside in the cold because they all want to get snapped by the street style photographers. And there’s nothing wrong with that at all, but it’s just not for me. I like to go to the show/presentation, snap away, get the content and get home to my hot chocolate, PJ’s and boxset of Harvey Specter Suits. 
Which is why this season I tried to be ridiculously selective, and rather than traipsing around to the 50bajillion shows I was – very, very luckily – invited to, I would just head to those that I genuinely looked forward to seeing. So what better way to start London Fashion week than with Schwarzkopf Got 2 b, going behind the scenes of the incredible Felder Felder. But first, let me take a selfie the outfit…

After checking out The Body Shop’s amazing pampering area at Fashion Scout, we then headed backstage to Felder Felder to discover exactly what went into producing the hair look.
After leaving Fashion Scout, we headed to The Apartment which in short, is a place that I never wanted to leave! Manicures, blow dries, massages, sleep pods – yes you read that right, sleep pods! – not to mention KFC to order and amazing coffee, The Apartment is a place that fashion bloggers can go to refuel, recharge (quite literally #iPhoneProblems) and just chill between shows.

I couldn’t think of a better way to end a busy Day 1 and I knew that I would definitely be heading back there over the next few days.
Right now, I am panicking as a video fails to export, planning tomorrow’s LFW outfit whilst simultaneously running a lush bath and losing my mind. Fashion week is definitely fun, and definitely crazy/busy/stressful/”oh my god, what is my life?”.  I’m already looking forward to a day off!
As always, thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!


  1. Your so lucky to be able to go! I think I would be running around going to as much as I can haha! I love your culottes, they're gorgeous and such a statement but still relaxed x

    I cringe at the word "fashionista" too, don't worry Elle. I actually have no idea the logistics of fashion week but I've got a pretty clear picture now, thanks to you; it sounds so hectic but how does everyone look SO good in the street style photos?!

    Anyway, I'm loving your pants! I hope you enjoy the rest of the LFW!

    • Haha that is the question that I ask, a lot of planning ahead. The people in the street style snaps are usually asked if it's ok to be taken first so you have a moment to compose πŸ™‚


  18. Digging into this outfit! So gorgeous! And I have similar sandals as yours, and they're really lovely and comfy at the same time!

    So nice to read your side of Fashion Week & how you like to spend it, compared to everything else out there. I'm not a 'fashonista' at all but would love to go to one of these events for the buzz & mostly for the beauty side of it (haha defiitely never getting invited to one now). The Apartment looks amazing, can I live there & you look beautiful as always x

    I'm so with you on this Elle – I chose not to go Saturday/Sunday because I just couldn't face all the rushing about – instead I had a chilled day on Tuesday at the one show I really really wanted to see and then went and got a big bowl of pasta and a hot chocolate and stalked Selfridges!

    LOVING your outfit, you look beaut as always xx
