What I Wore to London Fashion Week: three down, one to go…! This outfit sees the appearance of the black & white animal booties some of you may have seen on Instagram a few weeks ago – and along with the red patent brogues in the last post, this is how I got round my heels vs flats for fashion week dilemma. Wear ’em flat, wear ’em funky – style and comfort can be done!! I may not feel as “fierce” when I’m not in my heels, but unless your sole purpose at fashion week is to get papped for street style photos it’s so much better being comfy.
Does that make me sound like an old lady…?!
I teamed the booties (because I was determined to wear them, whether they went with anything or not) with my oversized check coat from Asos, a fedora and my trusty Maxwell Scott Birkin, which went with me everywhere during those few days. This got me through a full day of walking, underground escalators, queuing for shows, more walking, the David Bailey ‘Stardust’ exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, more escalators, a wander (walk) round Covent Garden, and lots of standing watching street performers. (Did I mention lots of walking?) There’s no way I could have done all that in heels, and carrying flats to change into just makes your bag bulkier and heavier. I had the most chilled day, the sun shone and I remembered all the things I love about London.
One more LFW outfit to go, then it’s back to my jeans and flats. Oh look, that’s what I’m wearing here. Sue me, fashion police 😉
(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.)
