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!
Now this is my kind of outfit – I love the dress, so simple and yet that zip gives it a bit of edge – I'm on the lookout for a good pair of loafers too, they go with so much! I had a similar problem with my dress being too low and end up putting a tiny stitch in it to avoid any serious boob malfunction, which worked surprisingly well (well at least I THINK I got away with it!!!)

Thanks so much Laura, so pleased you liked this outfit! Haha yeah the good old stitch generally avoids boob spillage doesn't it!
You look amazing!
Candice | Beauty Candy Loves
thanks so much lovely
OH HEY THERE BEAUTIFUL. Honestly, I love this dress. It's just so effortlessly put together! I also really need to try some Jo Malone perfume.. I've been wanting to for years but just can't part with my Marc Jacobs! xx

Haha thank you beautiful, so kind of you! Yes you do, it's SO amazing!
How chic is that tuxedo dress. I am hopelessly inlove with your sense of style Elle! Xx

Ah thanks so much hun, that's made my day!
ELLE, girl, you look amazing! That tuxedo dress is perfect for you and I love the location too – and I would definitely get caught up in The Apartment too, it sounds heavenly (and free wifi and manicures? yessssss)
Britton Loves | Lifestyle Food Beauty
Ahh thank you lovely lady, so pleased you liked the look!
You look so chic! Love this all black look!
Thanks so much Adriana, so glad you liked it!
So in love with that dress! Gorgeous pictures as well. Gotta love that golden hour, eh? 😉
And giiiiiirl, don't worry. I've not even tried the pumpkin spice latte as I have a feeling that there is a 98% chance that I would hate it. Ooops.
Meg | A Little Twist Of…
Yes, always loving the golden hour! Haha I'm so not a fan and I hate myself for it 😉
This dress is amazing – as is most of the stuff on the Little Mistress website. LFW is 100% on my to do list next year.
It's definitely something that I think every blogger should experience at least once. It's definitely not for everyone!
I love Jo Malone perfumes – can't wait to read your review of the new scent xx
It's so gorgeous Fleur, review coming soon!
this outfit is awesome!
Thanks so much!
What a beautiful look and very cheryl versini esque (which is v good in my opinion!) I was expecting heels so when I saw the loafers I loved them, they look great and a little different xxx
Haha she's a controversial one so i'm glad it's a positive 😉 Yes, my feet were far too battered for heels by this point!
Love this all black outfit babe! You look very chic!
Thanks so much lovely!
You look so so stunning Elle, and these photos are bliss! Also you have got that all black chic look down, so classy and suave! Hope you enjoyed LFW! 🙂
Thanks so much Heather, so pleased you liked the look!
Gorgeous outfit – I don't know how you have such amazing outfit photos all the time – I get SO embarrassed having photos taken in public! x
Heather | Of Beauty & Nothingness x
Ahh me too lovely, I absolutely hate it but I'm at the point where I can just get on with and then run away once they're done!
You look stunning as always! That tuxedo and loafers look great on you. xx
Thanks so much hun!

Thanks so much Danielle, so kind of you!
That dress is so gorgeous you look lovely 🙂 love those shoes too!
Ah thank you lovely, so pleased you liked it
I am about 2000% in love with this outfit tbh, you look so fab! I was totally expecting heels or something, then actually read the title and, well, nobody has time for heels on day 3. If they do then they get taxi'd everywhere. Or are subsisting on painkillers and propercorn. Those loafers though…
Fii | little miss fii
Haha thank you girly, so pleased you liked it
Stunning tuxedo dress! It looks so gorgeous <3
Thanks so much Abigail, so pleased you liked it!
Haaa I don't care for PSLs either…I can totally get on board with Starbucks hot chocolates though! I love this look on you, and I'm about to finish up my summer bottle of Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt so I'm looking forward to your review of the Mimosa/Cardamom one!
Oh god yes, so on board with them! Ooh isn't woodsage and seasalt so lovely, my fave!
Love the dress, chic with a little bit if edge! That street is so cool, you found the right place to shoot.
Thanks so much lovely, so pleased you liked it!
Oooh, I am loving the outfit! The tuxedo is gorgeous, It's so unique! Oh, I wish I could go to London Fashion Week! It must have been amazing to go, even if it was busy. I don't know busy = amazing for me, I just love being busy <3

Thanks so much Bash, I really love the dress too! I love being busy I just don't love being too stressed all day long lol, maybe I stress too much!
Beautiful photos! You look gorgeous, this dress is so unique. Haha omg Bianca's puffa jacket, I remember she was wearing the same jumper as me once and I could never wear it again… x
Thanks so much beauty!
You look absolutely incredible. Love the outfit you choose! Sounds like you had an incredible time.

Wow such an elegant and stylish look! One of my faves! You are gorgeous!
Thanks so much lovely!
Another outfit that I just love on you and yes I agree beautiful photos, the sun really lights up the atmosphere. I am so glad I'm not the only one who doesn't love Pumpkin Spice Latte, I bought one the day to feel like I am part of the blogger hype and I couldn't even finish it, way too sweet for me. I'll stick with my plain old soy latte from now on haha x
Beauty with charm
I love black and your tuxedo dress is so pretty and elegant. I have never shopped at Little Mistress so need to check them out properly. Also love your Zara bag. You look beautiful, as usual. xx
