Tuxedo dress fashion blogger
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….

Jo Malone mimosa and cardamom
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… πŸ˜‰] 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 πŸ˜‰
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!!!)

  2. 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

    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.

    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…

  24. Stunning tuxedo dress! It looks so gorgeous <3

  25. 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!

  26. LBG says:

    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
