Sunday, the hump day of London Fashion Week, it is always the day I feel shattered after two days full of shows, but I always get up to head out to support fellow blogger Charlie May and see the gorgeous red carpet beauties from Temperley London, and one day I hope to add Mulberry, Topshop Unique and Mary Katrantzou to the list.
First up was Charlie May, presented at the St Martins Lane hotel it was all very civilised, no queuing up in the cold, no instead we were asked to relax in the bar area before being seated. The show itself was amazing, more to come in a separate blog post, but it was minimal and sleek with metallic touches and the shoes in collaboration with Hudson were incredible.
From there it was a trip back to The Apartment, it is so lovely having somewhere to chill between shows and this gorgeous apartment overlooking Covent Garden is out-of-this-world. Today, I chatted with the Pinterest guys, I love their fashion week hub and it was nice to be able to say thank you for including me, I also got some tips on how to improve my boards and how people are using the site, if you guys are interested I will put together a tip sheet on how to get the most out of the site.
I then did a quick photoshoot with Little Black Dress, strangely not wearing black but purple, for their website, before heading out the door to Temperley London, which was being staged in the ballroom at The Savoy. With a packed front row of Anna Kendrick, Paloma Faith, Jodi Kidd and Pixie Lott the show was fashionably 30 minutes late, which meant that the guys rushing off to Topshop even planned their escape routes, I kid you not!
The show itself was magical, filled with incredible princess gowns made for the red carpet and dreaming of award shows – here’s hoping that Hollywood stylists see the beauty of the collection and call the pieces in. It would be nice to see some of the gowns at the up-coming Emmys.
It seems weird that my last show of the day was before 5pm but it was nice to go home eat proper food, see my boyfriend, stroke my cats and crack on with my work – I currently have over a thousand pictures to go through.
For day 3 my outfit was all abut my new jeans from Donna Ida, my new love of animal print, and my need to find an outfit to go with this quirky kitty cat hat from Claire’s. First up lets discuss these jeans, they are Ida by Donna Ida, yep the queen of jeans has her own collection and they are amazing. Not only are my Mabel’s the best fitting skinnies I have ever had, but they have received so many complements that I feel amazing wearing them.
As my Mabel’s are ankle grazing skinnies I paired them with my animal print Ugg Australia loafers, which surprised everyone when I told them who they were by, and to keep the leopard print going I also carried my new Lulu Guinness Izzy satchel that I spent the day protecting from the rain as it is too pretty to get wet!!!
