the LOOK show part 1


top: new look
shorts: H&M
necklace: zara taylor
jacket: primark
hat: H&M
rings: H&M + asos
shoes new look

So as pretty much all of you know, I went to the LOOK Magazine show for A/W. Its totally my kind of show, They pick the best all items and trends from the UK highstreet stores autumn/winter collections. I will be writing about the shows and my thoughts on each of the collections tomorrow, But for today I will leave you with a ton of images and a little bit about what we did before the show, the event, and of course my all important outfit!

Even though I was stressing out about what to wear I was happy with what I settled with in the end, I always knew I wanted to do hat/shorts/sheer tights and a top. The top was the bit I was worrying about! The shirt was something I've been considering getting for a while, It was actually Liv's and in my original plan I was going to wear my H&M long sleeved striped top. But me and Liv did swapsies and she wore the lace white dress and I wore the sheer shirt! Do you like the first ever full body shot I've ever done on this blog too, will probably be the last too!


The show was at the Saatchi Gallery, Id not been to that part of London before so with a little help from Google Maps and the Tube Map app for the iPhone, we got there safe and sound! After a little interview for the Look website, We got to jump the queue and get into the building! Upon entering we were all treated to a glass or two of champagne (or four and a glass of wine in Olivias case!) We were treated to a little Benefit makeup makeover (I officially need Bad Gal Lash again!) and a little go on a photobooth! The queue for it literally went from one side of the room to the other! There was also some performances from The Like and Gabriela Chilmi, both of which even though they aren't my cup of tea, I very much enjoyed their little sets! I scoffed lots of lovely M&S canapes, and realized that there is no way that you can eat a steak pie glamorously, no matter how teeny tiny it is!

I met Olivia from The Fashion Diaries, who had also won the Look Magazine Blogger competition! She was really lovely and was nice to meet her! There were a three other bloggers who won too, but I didnt really get to speak to them much unfortunately! We all got to sit front row, and spot the celebs! Of course I was drooling over the oufits and I cant wait to share my thoughts on that with you soon! After the show Diana Vickers sung her songs and we then retreated back to our hotel! We had a good rummage through our goody bags, ate song food and hit the hay! Was a totally tiring but amazing experience!

Look Magazine kindly put me and my friend Liv up in the Hilton London Metrople! Which was absolutely fab! Our room was really lovely and had a super cosy kingsize bed! It was just the place to crash out after a long days traveling and going to the show! I just want to say a big thank you to Lara who was doing the PR and being really fab about organizing it all for us! The show review will be up tomorrow, Monday by the latest! I'm still in London and having a lovely time! Those photos will be up next week though, I am tweeting and twitpicing so go check those out if your interested!

  15. Hardly plus sized! What a douchebag.
    anyway i am so incredibly jealous! It looked so much fun! Especially the photobooth.

    Question - did you do anything to get your hair like that or is it just naturally like that?

  19. Hi Lily!

    I've never commented thus far but when I saw your gorgy pictures from the Look Show I had an alarming urge to do so. You look fantastically beautiful and though your style is a bit different to mine (I'm a skirt-phobe)I find you so inspiring. Reading your blog makes me happy, and you're doing an awesome job. So thankyou! I heart LLMLRS muchly!

  24. I wonder if she meant that in a bitchy way or if she's just genuinely stupid. Weird. You're definitely not a plus size lol.

    Anyway Lily you look so lovely. Love the hat and your hair looks great. Can't wait to read more about it.

  31. I adore your outfit!! I've got the same shorts, only in beige. ;D

    And to "Emma": just because she's not skinny as hell like a lot of other fashion bloggers doesn't mean she's plus sized! I think you're just right Lily, not even close to plus size!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. can't wait to read the next parts of this post. sounds like you had an uhhmazing time! xx

    ReplyDelete

  40. OMG. If you're plus sized the rest of us must be clinically obese! hahaha!

  42. If Lily is plus sized then I might as well just stop trying.

    I'm very jealous right now. MEWANT HAT

    ReplyDelete
  43. You both looked absolutely gorgeous, I hope you had a lovely time.
    Have also just read your most recent post on the fashion show, I'd post on there but I struggle a bit for the right words to say when sharing my opinion on things like that. All I can say is you thoroughly deserved to go to that show and I completely agree that it must be much more enjoyable to attend a highstreet fashion show

  47. well size 10 is considered plus size. daisy lowe claims to be plus size and she probably is compared to all the stick thin models out there.

    ReplyDelete
  48. maybe that lady understood that you were a US size 10 or something. you are stunning as usual :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. That blouse is gorgeous! I thought your jacket looked so much more expensive than a Primark one! Ignore any bitchy comments, they are very undeserved!

    ReplyDelete
  50. You look amazing and from the post above too it looks like you had a fabulous time am very jealous! I need one of those hats :)
