LONDON FASHION WEEK DAY 3 – THE TUXEDO DRESS IN THE GOLDEN HOUR
Day 3 of London fashion week marked my final day of one of the busiest times of year for me, and I have to say, it was probably my favourite. I started the day by heading to the Georgia Hardinge presentation which was stunning; beautiful white, blush and monochrome tones in such wearable cuts and styles. I then headed to the Apartment to get my nails done by the wonderful Essie team and took an hour to catch up on emails/blog posts/life/basically everything that falls behind whilst you’re rushing around between shows…
… and it was absolutely perfect.
I did actually have more shows and presentations to go to but after venturing outside for a Pumpkin spice latte – soz Starbucks and the blogger world but I’m really not a fan [insert “please don’t shoot me” emoji here] – and a wander round Soho in the sunshine… I decided that a chilled day was actually what the doctor would’ve ordered.
After said wander, I caught up with Josie – who has quickly become my LFW/OOTD partner in crime – and we headed off to take some outfit photo’s. We discovered an absolute hidden gem in this little alley way that pocketed the most incredible golden hour glow and I loved the outcome of the shots we took. Here’s Day 3’s Outfit of the day; Tuxedo dresses and pointed slingback loafers!
This Tuxedo dress was very kindly sent to me by Little Mistress and as soon as I saw it, it was love at first sight. It’s just so incredibly versatile; I paired it with a black tee underneath (because pounding the streets all day with boob-age on display wasn’t really on the agenda for me!) but it also looks absolutely stunning – not to mention, sexy – worn alone with a beautiful pair of strappy black heels.
These slingback loafers are the puffa jacket to Bianca from Eastenders – sincere apologies to any non-UK based readers who have no idea who I’m talking about – in short, I wear these all the bloody time as my good friend Becca points out in tonights Youtube vid! I love them, they’re chic, comfortable and a fab alternative to heels. Ain’t nobody got time for blisters on blisters by day 3 of LFW….
The perfume of the day – and indeed, the entire week – was my latest addition to the Jo Malone collection, Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom (review coming soon). Such a gorgeous, wearable but also sexy scent that I haven’t stopped wearing since I received it.
So that brings this post, and my London fashion week outfit diaries, to an end. If you’re here for the lifestyle aspects of this blog then I am sincerely apologetic for my outfit spam this week and hope that you enjoyed it anyway. [And you know, even if you didn’t, maybe just pretend you did anyway… 😉] And if you are here for the fashion side of things, I hope you enjoyed my completely boring less than adventurous choices… not all of us dye our hair blue and dress like Joseph and the technicolour dream coat for fashion week 😉
As always, thanks so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!
