For those of you that have visited London Fashion Week or London Fashion Weekend at Somerset House will know how much of a fantastic experience it is, even my boyfriend loved it! It was our second visit to London Fashion Weekend this year and the atmosphere was just incredible, I just love seeing what everyone wears for the occasion, it just seems like everyone wants to impress! One of the main aspects of the weekend event is being able to shop straight from the designers in the beautiful surroundings of Somerset House, I honestly saw some fabulous items that I wanted so bad, one of which was a sheer tank embellished with pearl flowers, it honestly was the cutest thing I've ever seen, although I highly doubt I would ever be able to justify a suitable occasion to wear it.
Unfortunately for me I didn't even make it to the catwalk show, I know, absolutely devastated. The first catwalk show I saw in February was just incredible and I was so exited to see the trend catwalk this year but I felt very ill, all the excitement and heat meant I had to give it a miss unfortunately, but I have scoured YouTube to find footage of the event and I have to say, for whoever who actually went to the show it must have been amazing!
So, the 4 key trends for S/S15 include:
-Onle and only
-Fairy tale ending
One of my favourite things about London Fashion Weekend is the free designer tote bag you get filled with lovely little bits and pieces, I will admit that this season I was a little disappointed, although I really like the Lulu Guinness tote, I found that a lot of the items in the bag were just the same as February freebies, for example I got exactly the same Essie nail polish as last season and also LavAzza coffee for a machine I don't have! , but I was pleased to see that there was one of my favourite Maybelline mascaras, Label.M shine spray, Garnier cleansing wipe and Urban fruit (pineapple) but I was bemused to see Artelac Rebalance eyedrops in my bag... honestly I thought they had been put in my bag by mistake! The good thing is though, seen as my boyfriend also got a tote bag, it means I get double the freebies!
Topshop Buys: Faux leather quilted mini skirt- £38| The Little Mermaid pyjama set- £22| Metallic Jumper- £36
Finally, as I didn't make it to the trend show, we decided that we would hit Oxford Street, first stop, Topshop. As I don't really get to see my boyfriend all that much, he decided he would treat me to some bits and bobs from Topshop, I just love this faux leather quilted skirt, it is so versatile, not only do I intend dressing this up for a night out, I also will be wearing it for work and for teaming with tights in the daytime. These pj's are honestly the cutest, I am a massive Disney fan and you have literally no idea how long I have wanted them for, there are also The Lion King, The Simpsons and Aladdin to name a few of the sleepwear and underwear sets in Topshop at the moment. Finally, I decided to get a new jumper, I think that the autumn season is literally the hardest season to dress for, its too warm to wear a coat, but then there can be a chilly breeze which means you can't go out without one, so, my solution is to now just wear a jumper.
