LFW AW15 | Day 3




Top: Miss Selfridge
Scarf: Missguided
Jacket: It was my Nan's 

 
LFW Day 3 and the heavens opened!

Sorry I look like a moody bitch but it was pouring ha!

I think this outfit is the most muted i have ever worn to LFW!

For starters the beige fluffy crop top did used to be baby pink but i may have accidentally put it in the wash at 90 degrees and now its well - beige!

I mixed textures with the fluffy jumper and gorgeous fringe skirt from Motel Rocks. I think this look was inspired by all the 70s looks i had been seeing around but with a grunge modern feel.

The skirt was just dying to be paired with my over the knee boots so they got whacked out! I also borrowed this amazing three tone scarf from my sister which is a monster of a scarf but kept me nice and warm and stylish! The hat was also a necessity to avoid wet hair.

However the best part about this outfit is the brown leather jacket. It used to be my nan's and she used to wear it a lot so its one of the items that we all remember her wearing. I randomly remembered about it the other day and have not taken it off since.

You all know i do not usually wear brown or beige so i had to brighten up the outfit somehow! Green lipstick seemed like the answer! I am absolutely loving this one from Manic Panic!

LFW AW15 Day 2| Street style


So this was meant to be a street style post but I kept running into friends and then I got a bit carried away with chatting and loving all my friends outfits!

So i'm afraid this has turned into a bit of a fash friend post - but hey that's even better! You guys can see how fab and fash my mates are plus they are all absolutely luuuurvely!


I met Monzi at London Edge and she is like my sister from another mister! I love this girl so much, realist to the max! 


I posted this pic and my friends were like 'What the hell Sabs!? I LOVE Sarah, she's my idol!"
All i can say is that she is absolutely lovely! I spent the morning with Sarah AKA That Pommie Girl at Fashion Scout in between shows as we tried to huddle inside away from the cold. Our personal style is literally chalk and cheese but we can both pull great funny faces.


COOKIE MONSTER REUNITE! It was also kinda hard to take pics when things like this kept happening! Her coat won.



Josephine Cheng i met last year and I showed her around Camden. She is a amazing photographer and took the pics of my outfit a couple of posts back - absolute babe!

Haha i couldnt have a fash friend post without including a Girls On The Ground! My presenter pal Zoe looking very chic!

The incredible Isabella from Candy Coated Fashion - every time i see this girl her hair is a different colour and i was LOVING the green! It's mermaid meets alien and i freaking love it!


Haha I have no idea what Amy and I were talking about. I think we were having a heated discussion about Pokemon - sounds about right! ha


I finally I got to meet Kayla for the first time and she is gorgeous! I have been a massive fan of her style forever. 

ps. My hair has never looked so boring.

Also a little shout out to my friend Adrian who i took along with me for the day! He is a amazing human being and has let me sleep on his floor in his tiny living space on and off for the past 2 months! He looked after me when I had exhaustion and couldn't stand from working/ commuting. He makes sure I eat because he knows I have no money from all my internships and lets me drink all the alcohol in his cupboard when i have boy problems haha. He has let me literally take over during LFW and whilst i was at Marie Claire and i shall probably be doing the same whilst i am at The Stylist in March! I am very grateful to have him in my life!

LFW AW15 Day 2 | What I Wore

















 Coat: Boohoo
Skirt and Top: Missguided
Boots: TK Max
Pokemon necklace: Made Myself
Glasses: Got given them free at a nightclub ha
Backpack: Vintage

My 2nd day at LFW was my fun day! 

I dressed in my usual 90s trashy style and went to a ton of shows! I mixed purple metallic with pastel fur and topped it all off with my buffalo boots which were a much more comfy choice after the day before heels! What got a lot of people talking was my Pokemon necklace which i just randomly made one evening. As i kept telling everyone - calm down its only a energy card i wasn't going to put a hole in one of my beloved Pokemon creature cards!

I also got to meet up with loads of my blogger pals which was amazzzing- more on that later! My gorgeous gal pal Josephine Cheng took these pics - utter babe!

LFW AW15 Day 1 Presenting with Yahoo Girls On The Ground

Okay so this is the most exciting post I have written in a while!

 For LFW AW15 Day 1 I got to spend the day working with the lovely Yahoo team being a presenter for Girls On The Ground!

 I should probably start off by saying that a few weeks ago us GOTG got put through our paces to make sure we were prepared for LFW! You can watch the first fun video of how we did that below:


 On the Friday of LFW I was so excited! I was reporting on all things fashion and Zoe was doing all the fab beauty bits!

The following days of LFW were taken over by the other incredible GOTG so that we could bring you all the best behind the scenes, celeb spots, trends, streetstyle and much more from LFW!

All of which can be seen in the video below! So what are you waiting for? Check it out! Then scroll down to see exactly what i got up to on the Friday!

It was a early start for the team but Zoe and I had the amazing Natasha and Kim to keep us organised! I spent the day with Natasha and she needs a massive shout out for organising the GOTG team! She was also the best support and i was so very grateful to have her there!


The first show was J.JS Lee which I LOVED! It was boyish and playful and my inner tomboy was lusting over every piece that was a perfect mix of androgyny and chic! There were some amazing structured pieces, followed by metallics and then my favorite piece in the collection was a MASSIVE pink fur dress!

My sister who was sat at home watching her twitter feed fill with LFW goss sent me a image of it saying 'you would LOVE this!'. She had no idea i was in the show ha and was very right! I wanted to pick up the model and run towards the nearest exit!






My 2nd show of the day was Eudon Choi whose inspiration was Japanese Architecture. The shapes were all stunning and I loved the set design!

 Zoe and I then interviewed this spaceman as our first streetstyle. My opening line was "I have to say, you are looking out of this world!"


I then went on to interview the dashing Andy Jordan who is just lovely. We had a great natter and laugh. He said he was searching for love at LFW but was having no luck so far ha! He also has a great knowledge of cows in Devon and we somehow got onto talking about 50 Shades Of Grey.



In our lunch break we went to the ME Hotel to the Ugg Suite that was much needed and amazing! There were green tea drinks, amazing food, a manicurist and everything else you need to get you through LFW!


After lunch i headed to the DAKS show! The music and clothes were all kinda sexy! It was military with a modern twist. I loved the matching hats and boots. There was also a lot of patent - now usually im not a fan but now i really want a pair of red patent boots! This is what LFW does to you!



The MIC interviewes continued as I interviewed Phoebe Lettice. I was loving her 90s style and she is just one cool gal being creative director of Illustrated People - which i fabuuulous!


Firstly how cool is this girls hair!? Secondly this is the one and only Tallie Storm. If you don't know who she is you sure will soon! She sings and has great style so obvs i was loving it!


My last interview of the day was with the lovely Kelly from Paper London! Her latest collection was influenced by architecture floor plans and mickey mouse - how incredible is that!


I then quickly popped into the Paul Costelloe presentation which i always enjoy!


Do you like my awkward 'omg im so short' smile? ha


I had a quick glass of bubbly and spotted the lovely Sam Faiers before heading out to my last show of the day!


Sass and Bide held at the Australian Embassy was a stunning location for a equally beautiful collection!


I spotted Ella from La Petite Anglaise looking gorgeous as per usual! And I couldnt miss Bipling who was being her usual YAR self and looking incredible in Lazy Oaf.


So that was it! I was very sad to hand back the Yahoo mic but also was about to do a Sim and start swaying on the spot and then collapse. 

Big love to the Yahoo team and all the Girls On The Ground - i have so much love for everyone involved and still so honoured that i get to be part of it!

I absolutely loved presenting and hopefully i shall be able to do more in the future!
