I love London Fashion Week and Weekend and everything that comes with it; the buzz, the gossip, the shows and of course, the CLOTHES! This year led me to the Gyunel SS15 show (Rosie Fortescue, Millie Macintosh, Pixie Lott, Amber Le Bon and Lara Whitmore spotted!) at the Bloomsbury Ballroom as well as the Vielma catwalk show hosted by Felicities at the swanky ME Hotel. When the sun went down I hit up LFW Fashion’s Finest After Party at DISCO in Soho as well as the Shopcade LFW After Party.
So what do you wear to all of these glizty events? Well, the first clue is to look at the magazines – what’s in for A/W 14? I saw a lot of draping…of coats, blazers, sweaters, jackets, whatever. Drape away!
For the Vielma catwalk show I wore a French Connection dress and blazer (draped of course) with BCBG Max Azaria shoes, paired with a Juicy Couture classic leather crossbody bag.
However for London Fashion Weekend I wanted to be relaxed yet elegant. The French connection blazer appeared again, this time with a basic Gap white t-shirt and ripped American Eagle jeans. The BCBG shoes came back – these are the only shoes I would walk a mile in. They are truly so comfortable and this is coming from someone who loves heels but can’t wear them for very long. The BCBG heels feel like a dream and this is due to the ankle strap that lets your foot relax while walking. These are not going to slip off.
The key peice in this look is a statement accessory and this year mine was the Ted Baker ‘Teryn’ Shopper Bag from http://www.repertoirefashion.co.uk/
This website stocks major designer lables from Armani to Hugo Boss to Ted Baker. This bag is simply gorgeous with a colour blocking scheme of beige and black going on and is a fantastic size for holding pretty much anything and everything. I am someone who needs a big bag and this bag carried me through London Fashion Weekend while I flitted about all day. It held snacks, a jacket and countless beauty essentials. It’s perfect for everything.
I am also currently eyeing a pair of Armani skinny jeans. Perhaps for next year:)
What’s your favourite go-to bag for everything?
