fashion week


(image credit one & two)
dress: river island
necklace: urban outfitters
blazer: H&M
boots: topshop
bag: louis vuitton
sunglasses 1: new look
sunglasses 2: primark

I realised I forgot my camera battery literally as soon as I got on the train to London on Friday. After I had a bit of a cursing session I just decided to take a deep breath and calm down. Remembering someone will take a photo of me at fashion week... right!? London Fashion Week is funny because everyone trys to play it cool but desperatly wants people to take their photograph. Obviously unless your 6ft tall or about 100lbs or wearing the most outrageous clothing you own, its not going to happen. But I had a few people snap photos of me so it was pretty cool!

I didnt really plan what I was wearing until the 10 mins before I actually left the house, so just went for black as its easy to wear and pretty much just wanted to blend in if anything! OTT is the name of the game at Fashion Week to be honest. However I just went with the genericy fashiony look! Oh well! And yes, I am wearing two different pairs of sunglasses because Im that much of a diva. *snap*

  17. The blazer looks so good. And I would've had a cursing session too if I forgot my camera. But at least you had your photo taken, so you could save the photos!

  41. Bloody love that dress Lily! I didn't take nearly as many photos as I'd hoped, I'm such a lazy blogger in that regard haha. Was lovely seeing you as ever (:

  42. Lily! I should've let you had your way with my camera, you could've borrowed it at westfield because my dad gave me a 16GB memory card. I would've emailed your pics over to you. I'm utterly useless, I always think of these things in hindsight! I was far too dazed to be functioning like a normal human being! So pleased to have met you, i was really (geeky) happy to see you! x
