Fashion Week.

I've been stupidly lucky. One standing show and all the rest seated; ridiculously good positions for Louise Gray and BodyAmr.
I could go through the shows in detail but you can find it on really...
So instead it's my experiences, my p.o.v.

I've had products and makeovers from the deightful people at MAC - a little review coming soon. Been allowed backstage at Ones To Watch where I met the deightful Charlotte Taylor, A. Hallucination guys and Georgina Hardinge. Spotted the gorgeous Lily Allen at BodyAmr, before seeing
Daisy Lowe (my absolute favourite!) and Amber Rose (Kanye West's girlfriend) walk. It may seem like I'm name dropping but the buzzy audience atmosphere around these events means they're worth a mention.

Other highlights include catching up with the lovely fashion friends I rarely get to see. The exhibitions have been a wealth of talent and making new contacts. And I loved the Orla Kiely presentation as always, plus added Craig Lawrence to my interest list.

I'll be sharing images and brands and other experiences with you for weeks to come. But thanks to four hours sleep I'm off to bed; Matthew Williamson beckons tomorrow...


Predictable London Fashion Week Post

So guys, tomorrow it all kicks off and I'll be there!

Keep an eye on my twitter here for up to the minute photos and news.
Alternatively I'm be trying to post at the end of each day...which could be interesting as this season I also have parties after the shows.

My schedule for tomorrow includes:
Paul Costello, Caroline Charles, Ones to Watch [including backstage access!], Maria Grachvogel and Prophetik to name a few. As well as the Prophetik party in the evening.

I'll be taking 100s of photos of outfits, the catwalks, backstage hair and make up and lots more.

Now something special for you guys:

Pyrenex Premium have a special pop-up store to coincide with London Fashion Week which will be debuting the collection to London for the first time! It'll be open for fifteen days as of this Sunday and you're all invited to go down and take a look.

The new collection is specially designed by Alex Mabille and compromises of "twenty high-voltage down jackets". Every type of jacket seems to have been created from biker to bomber to cape...To me that sounds more than a little bit exciting. Plus you get an exclusive first look!

Air Gallery
32 Dover Street

I'll be at the launch party and I can't wait to get my hands on these jackets. Down jackets...can you imagine how soft they'll be?!

Hope you enjoy my coverage ;)


A love affair with Jasper Garvida

I was kindly invited to the My Sugarland blogger event last Wednesday and took along my beautiful friend and fellow blogger Molly.We previewed the new collection and browsed the vintage rails, whilst being tempted by a famous chocolatier; popping candy and the salted caramel were amazing.It was a chance to meet fellow fashion bloggers, plus have our hair and make up done by professionals [I didn't get round to the hair part...]. Then we chose items and styled them up before having our photos taken professionally.

Shirt: Jasper Garvida
Shorts: John Rocha
Brogues: My own
Hairband: My Sugarland

I fell head over heels for this shirt...silky soft with sculptured shoulders. Not sure I can quite afford the price tag at this stage but here's hoping. Not long now until London Fashion Week; in fact just three days and I'll be on my way to London. I went shopping yesterday with the lovely boyfriend and picked out some new treats to wear. Tickets are actually turning up and I got the most amazing news yesterday that I'd been invited to the Matthew Williamson show. Excited? Moi? If you're there be sure to drop me a line! xx

Life is hectic and spontaneous at the moment. Final summer trips and a lack of internet has left for sporadic posting. I'll finally be back for permanent times shortly. And I actually have stuff to share like some photos of behind-the-scenes at Company magazine, blogger event coverage, and who can forget London Fashion Week. I don't know what to wear, tickets are coming in, I have some plus ones which equals fashionable friends and it's not far at all now. Fashion week is for eating little, inspiration, sore feet and friends who you only ever see at fashion-related events but click instantly with. I can't wait to catch up with some of mine and bring you all the photos, trends and gossip from the front row [or back row ;)].
I'm covering for a few different magazines but I'll also post up on here just for you guys.

This jumper was an incredibly kind gift from the people behind Rare clothing; Think Publicity. I was devastated that I had to miss the blogger preview event and it was so lovely to be emailed a month or so later offering an item of my choice. The team is always so generous and polite - a big thanks to Almina & Lauren. It's so soft and I love the detailing - a little bit quirky!
For those who want to get their hands on it - it's £39.00 from :)

If you haven't checked out Rare's gorgeous new AW10 range, including the Opulence line, I seriously advise you to now. They've stepped up their game to produce some beautiful dresses and Acne-style shoes. I've already added about 10 pieces to my lust list.

Off I go now but there'll be a post on Sunday. And I'll also get round to all your lovely, supportive comments!
Some interning outfits...

My hair colour changed mid-way through! Bit strange to compare.

Left: Striped top - sisters, Denim shorts - DIY, Leggings - H&M, Brogues - Barratts
Right: In the fashion cupboard! Dress - kind gift from Funk Rock, Cardigan - Primark

My next post will have behind-the-scenes shots of the celebrity photoshoot I went on. I can say now that it was an absolutely amazing experience... depending on number of readers of each post I'm going to start updating every other day I hope.
Lots of lovely event coverage, interviews & of course London Fashion Week to come!

Lots of love x
