At last I have photos of what I wore to London Fashion Week (part one). I've been back most of the week but it's taken me till now to catch up - I don't know how bloggers manage to publish their photos next day; I'm always about a week behind with all my outfit posts (and I blog full time). I apologise for my tardiness...!
These photos were very kindly taken for me by my "LFW BFF" Anna Elliott - she's captured my sequinned Topshop kimono beautifully (thanks Anna)! I did buy it with the intention of wearing it to Fashion Week, but honestly had no idea how I was going to style it. As it's such an OTT piece, I decided to do dressed-down but also practical for February in London for the rest of the outfit: a super thick cowl neck sweater for warmth (which dispensed with the need for a coat or scarf), my distressed boyfriend jeans and my high - but comfortable - black ankle boots. Of course I couldn't go to LFW without my recently-acquired Maxwell Scott Birkin style bag, which I think has the potential to be the most hard-working accessory in my sartorial arsenal.
So I was comfy, warm and sparkly; that, to me, is LFW heaven. I have two more fashion week outfits to publish on the blog, so watch this space... meantime, check out some of the beautiful kimono picks I've selected (at the bottom of the post). Are you also loving kimonos as outerwear? Any one doing sequinned or sparkly like me... Let me know!
P.S. A squillion thanks to everyone that voted for me in the Fever London Real Models competition... I did it, I won my size category!! You won't believe a. How grateful I am for all the support that everyone showed me (I'm so humbled), and b. How utterly relieved I am that I can stop banging on about it and pestering people for votes! I'll be modelling the SS14 collection on the website very soon (vintage makeover & photo shoot on Saturday along with the four other winners) - so watch this space! Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you...
Shop my look! I've picked a selection of wonderful kimonos in case a full length sequinned one is a bit much for you: some are long, some are short, some are sequinned, some are not... One thing's for sure - they're definitely all faaabulous ;)
