london etc














top: primark
coat: H&M
skirt: H&M
necklace: forever 21
satchel: river island
shoes: primark
belt: primark
tote: new look (press day bag)
watch: swatch
(gosh I hope thats everything haha)

Just a few snaps from when I was in London, I was going to post my New Look A/W press day and Style Nation launch party photos but decided just to post these miscellaneous photos from my trip! Me and Greg went to Yo! Sushi, I had hairy prawns, chicken tsukune and spicy chicken salad. We also went to the V&A for a bit. If you follow me on Twitter you would know I bought a Louis Vuitton Speedy 30, I feel like a proud parent. I FINALLY got one of the bags I've always lusted after.

I've been saying for a while I wanted to spend my rainy day money on a designer bag, I went through a period of wanting a Mullberry Alexa but decided to get a Louis because despite what most people think of them, personally I think they are really classic and it goes with practically everything. I always knew deep down I was a Louis girl, and Im so happy I got him!

  12. Believe it or not, I'm yet to visit Yo!Sushi...I feel like I haven't lived. ''hairy prawns'' sound a liiittle weird, but I'm all for those chicken dishes, YUM.
    Yay for the LV :) I'm not a Louis girl myself, but it's great that you've saved up and got something so special - I kind of felt that way about my camera....you'd think it was a baby the way I panic when I forget it! x

  13. Aw you look amazing! Like I literally want to copy your whole outfit haaa. Been looking for a necklace like yours for ages, they don't seem to have them in F21 anymore :(

    Sounds like you had a lovely time, nice one on the bag!

  14. I totally agree - Alexa's will gradually pass out but Louis will stick around... Investment piece I say :)

    It would be mine

  16. i love the colour of your skirt! it's adorable.

    i considered asking for an Alexa from my parents, but a girl at my college had one and it didn't look as good quality as i'd have expected, although she'd had it a while. but i guess i'll just be sicking to my highstreet 'investments' which tend to last about a month.

  21. It looks like you had a really great time - and you look lovely as always!

    I'm glad you made the right decision about the bag. I'm going to (eventually) start saving for an Alexa, but I was a big black oversized one while will be almost £1,000. Before I buy it I'm going to make sure there are no other timeless bags out there I really like, because I will be able to afford most of them with the savings, and that sort of money you want to be spending on something that is really 'you'!

  29. I love your hat. And generally your whole outfit.
    Getting a bit depressed seeing everyone's press day posts cause I've missed out on them all being stuck out here in Austria, boo!
    I think you made the right decision going with the LV and not the Alexa. I was thinking of spending some of my savings on an Alexa but I've decided they're just a bit too "faddy". Going to save up that bit extra for a Balenciaga City instead I think.

  38. Your hair looks so much darker in these pictures.
    Great, that you got a Louis Vuitton bag, Mulberry's Alexa is nice, but so 'in', a Louis is something for a lifetime.
