What I wore to London Fashion Week

28 Sep

One of the reasons I love London Fashion Week is I actually get to wear some of the impractical things I can’t help but buy. Things like ostrich feather skirts, fluffy furry jackets and vintage fur hats. These are things I couldn’t possibly live without but they don’t really have a place in everyday life. Here’s what I wore:

Day one

Jacket – Zara, floral top – River Island, velvet maxi skirt – New Look, wedge brogues – Bertie, Jewellery – Links of London, YSL, Roberto Cavalli, thrifted, holiday buys, H&M. Randomly decided to put on a mood ring I bought when I was about 15, can’t remember what the colours meant but it was fun guessing!

Day two

Photo courtest of Emerging Fervour, as I didn’t take any apart from in the photobooth! I can’t remember what we were doing or where we were going but I was hanging out with Kit from Style Slicker and Shini from Park & Cube. Yes, I had wardrobe envy. 

Fluffy cardigan – Monsoon, pearl top – New Look, laser cut silk skirt – Rare, Tights – Henry Holland, denim buckle wedges – Asos. The rosary is from River Island men’s department, I’ve had it for years and love it even though a lot of the silver has rubbed off. 

Day three

Fur hat – vintage, fluffy jacket – Zara, silk playsuit – Topshop, patent cut out wedges – New Look. No idea about the tights I’m afraid! 

Day four

The ostrich skirt. I love this, wore it last season too. It’s not even my size it’s slightly big but I-just-had-to-have-it!

Cobweb knit cardigan – H&M, black lace top – New Look, ostrich feather skirt – Topshop, killer embellished heels – Miss Selfridge


Florals and sparkles at Pride London

5 Jul
On Saturday, Fiona from SOS and I headed to Pride London 2010, to celebrate gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender culture. This year was a super huge party to mark the 40th anniversary of the Gay Liberation Front, and it was so much fun! We started off in Soho for the street party, then headed to Trafalgar Square where the main event was taking place. There were loads of inspirational speakers on stage as well as acts such as Same Difference. We also took part in the Big Dance…it was amazing to see the entire population of Trafalgar Square doing the same dance!

Although the theme was ‘paint the town ruby red’, neither of us wore red. I thought florals and sparkles were the way to go instead. I wore my floral H! by Henry Holland shorts paired with an open sided Oh My Love tee and my Topshop sequin bra underneath.

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to Debenhams flagship store on Oxford Street for champagne, cupcakes and a sneak peek into Henry Holland’s high summer collection for Debenhams. This is his second collection for the fashion-forward department store, after the huge success of his initial Spring collection. To my surprise, they pretty much had all of my favourite bloggers there at the same time, including Carina from Carina 100, Amy from Wolf Whistle, Selina from Flying Saucer and my most favourite lady Fiona from Save Our Shoes.

The whole Personal Shopping section of the store was ours to go through two rails of the very floral collection, along with loads of changing rooms to try things on. I absolutely loved all of the florals, especially on one of the bralets and a pair of shorts. Henry was also feeling military, with lots of khaki and denim featured in the collection as well as his signature statement tees. I don’t normally do prints, but his crazy bright florals were far too amazing to ignore, so when I was told we can take two pieces home I chose these amazing floral shorts and matching bralet. And I may just wear them together for Amy and Fi…Kidding!

Overall, I thought the collection was gorgeous. The price points were fairly low and the quality wasn’t bad. Some pieces felt they were a little young though, I felt the same with the Spring collection. What do you think of the collection? Has anything caught your eye?

Henry Holland’s collaboration with Pretty Polly was a storming success so it’s no wonder high-street department store Debenhams snapped him up to design a range. Well, it does seem a little unfair that there is no equivilent of the Target collaborations on this side of the pond! Henry described the range as “Amazing, fashion-forward pieces which can easily integrate into any girl’s wardrobe, and at affordable prices”. The range is very bright in typical Holland fashion, and there are some really fun pieces. These are my favourites:
