London Fashion Week!

27 Jun

The long awaited… London Fashion Week blog!  So I think I have taken so long to do this for two reasons.

  1. I am still sad about the departure of Sister Sophie Turvey who was my partner on this day!
  2. I was so excited but was slightly disappointed – but only a little! (read below to find out more)

So yay.. London, freaking love London! Love the business, getting the tube (with my sexy oyster card), and I loveeee the diversity of the place! Me and my gal got up fairly early drove into London parked up and tubed into the heart of London.

As we started to find our way to Somerset House, we got a little lost, being from out in the sticks, but we just followed all the fashionable people! (There are so many that SO aren’t.. haha)

When we got there it was a beautiful destination – loved the courtyard and what not. There was a main stall in the middle with Toni and Guy doing hair – 3 choices of hair which looked cool for people to have a try and then cheap designer stuff everywhere, and small designer names trying to get some recognition. Some things where cool but I so didn’t have enough money still. £400 for a purse, is still not cheap enough for me! I have my Mulberry and that is enough for me for now! And also, I didn’t even take that with me, I was carrying my cute Vintage bag that I picked up from a Charity Store for £5 !!! I LOVE CHARITY SHOPS! It’s literally in immaculate condition too.

So me and Soph walked around all the stalls and saw some really beautiful items of clothing, If I had a couple grand on me – It would have been my favourite day! But Soph saving for a mission and me buying a car – didn’t really mean we had much which was a shame.  But we wanted to go for the fashion show. There was a pink pair of stiletto heels – so tiny and hard to walk in – that I wanted to buy but I wasn’t quick enough and someone bought the last ones in my size. Then me and Soph didn’t see anything worth our pennies (and we enjoyed a reallllly yummy Nandos later after a day of no food.. shhh don’t tell)



We picked up our free bag and bought the Elle magazine and we headed over with our Vodaphone VIP wristbands – shoutout to Russ you the bomb! And got seated – and this is why I wasn’t impressed. The person to left of me was a Mum who did not give two tosses about fashion, I’m pretty sure she was wearing bootleg jeans that were two tight and hiking boots with a winter fleece, sitting with her little 10 year old daughter, I was starting to wish I went to the exclusive event but luckily when the models started coming out I did enjoy some of the collections.  The models strutted their stuff and showed off the best of what they could in the short space they had to show. The hair wasn’t all that impressive, just mainly slick back top knots – but they are pretty fashionable at the moment, shame I have a huge head and can’t pull them off really! Notice in the pictures the Asian inspired collection this was by my favourite. I also love the loud colours inserted to different outfits, I did pick a few things out that I would love to wear. – similar to the Oxford Satchels in neon colours that Sophie fell in loveeee with on one of the stalls.




There was also this beautiful stall with hair pieces with crazy flowers that were all hand crafted and was so beautiful.. these are our best sneaky shots we tried to get. My favourite stall!! (see the pictures below)




Last off… Zoe Hardman was the host of London Fashion Week.. she looked so cute in this Beige coloured jumpsuit with bright orange heels. And here are me’nd Sophie’s OOTD’s! ❤


Overall it was a pretty good day & I’d go again! Lots of Love xoxo

The Midi Dress

10 Jun

These Midi dresses have been on trend for quite a while now, and it is so nice because they can be worn casual, dressed up, to church, to a formal event (dressed up with jewellery), to work.. you freaking name it!! So the New Look ones have been really popular, they are a fair price and there are loads of patterns to choose from. ( Here is a link to the New Look Midi Dresses > )

And here are some of my favourites! I love the ranges between the high necks, the different sleeve lengths.. New Look have got really experimental! And some are so spring, love the lemon colour and the pale grey. Love Love Love!!287304704280570649281792847

Here are also a few from ASOS I saw recently that are really nice.



There are some nice ones that are more girly and cute, and then there are some ones that are a bit more androgynous…

The style that is my favourite is when there is a midi dress worn with a beanie hat and some small trainers, and some long hair and red lip! But that’s a more style based on Rihanna/ Rita Ora/ Cassie Ventura. But they are my style icons – not up most people’s street.

The plain ones can look really nice with a chunky gold necklace and some sky high heels!

Another favourite look for me is with a leather jacket and some nice sandals.
