So... continuing with what I wore to London Fashion Week! This outfit is all about the fabulous vintage tapestry coat that was very kindly loaned to me for LFW by The House of Pandora, a British online outlet offering an amazing selection of vintage fashion from around the world. It's such a beautiful piece - incredibly thick and warm as you can probably imagine, just right for a soggy cold day up in the smoke. It's a teeny bit big for me, but with the belt and its stunning buckle (check THAT beauty out!), I was able to pull it in without it looking too baggy.
And those of you who read my post questionning Heels vs Flats for Fashion Week from last week may have observed that I did do flats, but at least bright red patent brogues are statement flats! I could walk, and was comfy - that's a win-win in my book.
The Maxwell Scott Birkin bag was my fashion week workhorse, and I thought all the reds, browns and corals worked so well together, picking out the colours of this amazing coat. Shame I'm not keeping it, but it's still available to buy if you'd like it yourself. (As well as their online shop, The House of Pandora can be found at selected markets and vintage fairs around the country - follow them on Twitter @houseofpandora for updates. The pieces are second-to-none and if you're a vintage fan like me, I guarantee you'll be wanting so many of them... apologies in advance.)
Two more LFW outfits to go, with a bit of a twist on the last one; you'll have to wait and see what that is. Any fans of vintage out there? Any favourite pieces you've acquired - let me know in the comments!
(These photos weren't taken at LFW as you can probably tell; sometimes you have to recreate the outfit when you get home as it's either too hectic on the day or you haven't got someone with you to take your photo on your camera at a convenient time.)
