Yep, it’s London Fashion Week again (at least, it was when I photographed and started drafting this post) and I know that I don’t need to ramble about LFW thoughts again so *insert mildly annoying comment about sometimes liking it, sometimes thinking it’s an overrated time where people do extravagant things like dye their hair blue and wear rainbows to stand out!*.
I for one, most definitely do not do anything crazy or different for LFW, and especially where my outfits are concerned. I actually really loved what I wore for Day 1 (despite feeling – and let’s be honest, looking – like a bit of heffalump bag lady!) because it was very me, whilst also being a slightly better version of me.
And what that souped up, slightly nonsensical (I’m writing this at 6am on a saturday, so bear with me on sentences that are actually readable) jargon really means is, I wasn’t wearing my usual slobby jumper with ingrained nutella stains on, but I also wasn’t in a ball gown.
Now I bet you can’t bloody wait to see the look [insert cry laughter/”but no, seriously, I realise I’m tragic” emoji here].
The look was based around this jumpsuit which I found online at ASOS – i.e the motherland/holy grail/place of worship/place of bankruptcy – and despite my brother saying I looked like Tom Cruise from Top gun, and feeling like I was wearing a Karate gown (which I later found out was called a “Gi”, see, told ya blogging was educational) I actually really loved it. And by some miracle, so did at least 6 other girls at LFW.
I mean, they were most likely totally doing a Regina George “I love your skirt, where’s it from?” kinda thing, but still….
The bag is a recent addition to my Bag-drobe – is this an actual thing? And if it isn’t, can I make it one? – and I am completely, fully, utterly obsessed! It’s the Radley Elgin Avenue medium bag* in black and as soon as I saw the shape IRL, I knew it was going to be one of those classic bags that I go back to time and time again. Having said that, funnily enough I actually never ever go for black (black for clothing, navy/grey/tan for bags for me usually) but I’m so glad I did. A classic, beautifully structured and stunningly well made bag that added that little bit of chic and sophistication to a somewhat unorthodox outfit.
The boots were the same old Maroon, mock croc boots which I absolutely adore but unfortunately went out of stock a lifetime ago. But as always, a very similar pair will be linked below
because I got my shit in gear and now act like a proper blogger sometimes
My watch is the babe-in Abbott Lyon which you’ve probably seen plastered all over my Instagram and the gorgeous stacking rings are Gemporia. The Gold Moon ring is my recent addition and it hasn’t left my
sausage finger since it came. An absolutely beautiful, delicate piece.
So that brings Day 1’s look to a close. A massive thanks to my girl Hannah for taking these photo’s for me (and subsequently convincing me that I need the sodding Olympus pen in my life [insert guilty/”yes I know I’m a cliche, totally not sorry” emoji here]). Despite my lack of love – LOL, subtle way of saying hate – for LFW, I actually had a really lovely first day. After breakfast with Kurt Geiger, a delicious post breakfast breakfast – yeah, don’t judge… – with Hannah and Niomi (who I met for the first time and is a total, total babe) a couple of shows and hanging at The Apartment, I decided that maybe this season will be a bit different. Maybe it will be more chilled and more selective and ultimately, on my terms rather than what I feel like I need to go to.
LFW ramble over, I really hope you liked the look. Day 2 is coming up on Friday and then I promise I’ll get back to a more random selection of posts rather than constant titting around in my new outfits 😉
