Sequins at 8am - must be Fashion Week

Fashion Week is well and truly upon us. I did a few shows yesterday and if I'm honest, nothing really stood out for me. This time last season I was so inspired by so many gorgeous collections, but this year, nothing has really struck me. Hopefully this will change today and over the next few days, and I hope I'll have some fun collections to write about.

T-Shirt - H&M
Skirt - H&M
Coat - H&M (I swear I had no idea how much H&M I was wearing when I put my outfit together.)
Shoes - Love Moschino via Sarenza

Now when else can I wear sequins so casually during the day? Although, some people get so overly dressed up for Fashion Week that they make sequins look as casual as a pair of jeans, haha! But I do love injecting some sequins into my day to day life.

And of course - my Fashion Week shoes. I love these shoes and for the last few seasons, they have been the shoe I start my LFW with, so I had to keep up with tradition and wear them on Day 1 again. They always get so much love from street style photographers (while the rest of me is ignored, which is how I like it).

Also, I had a mini makeover thanks to Rimmel, and then was laden with some great products to try, which I'm very excited to do. They were there for The Apartment, so it was perfect to go there, rest my feet, get my hair done and then my make up - such a perfect mid day treat.

I did have one incredible highlight to LFW Day 1. I was casually hanging in the courtyard of Somerset House, avoiding the massive crowd of photographers around Kate Nash and I look over to my side to find one of my biggest music inspirations standing there: Alison Sudol, from A Fine Frenzy. I grew the courage to speak to her and she was the nicest person ever. I can usually compose myself when speaking to people, but I went total fangirl and she was so lovely to speak to. Her music has gotten me through so much over the years, so to stand there and have a conversation about fashion with her made my day for sure.
She even tweeted me after. As you can tell, I'm still fan-girling over this.

Gahhhhh. Okay.

First, those boots are UNFREAKINGBELIEVABLE. So cool. And I love that you can legitimately say you have a pair of "fashion week shoes." Hahaha! So cool.

You look gorgeous. You seem to be glowing in these photos.

And how cool you got to meet one of your fave celebs AND she was super sweet to you! AND tweeted you?!? That's the sign of true fabulousness: when celebs are enamoured with YOU. ;)

I love that glittery H&M skirt!!! I also love the big LFW badge and the alternating dark and light layers. I'm from the other side of the pond and still just learning of collections at London Fashion Week - haven't chosen any favourites yet but am following fashionistas like yourself hoping to read and see more :)


What a fun skirt, love the day sparkle look, and shoes for LFW are so important. Your boots are amazing! Brilliant that you met and spoke to Alison Sudol. xo Have a great w/e.

Janine BakeGlueandTrend said...

you look great, I much prefer this kind of look on someone at fashion week than the completely over the top outfits some people wear, that should be left for the catwalk ladies!!!

How exciting that you got to meet one of your music idols too :)
