Today I got a new camera so I decided to give it a go making an outfit video! My last three ways to wear video went down really well so I decided to follow up with another. I chose to base my looks around my current favourite item of clothing my River Island Molly coated trousers, or for the sake of the video, My (faux) Leather Trousers. I decided to keep all the looks really monochrome, to fit with my personal taste as well go with the current trend of Monochrone (I kid myself, I just like black and white!) I really hope you like my looks and enjoy watching my video. I'd love to know your thoughts (:

boohoo global styler



clothing all from boohoo*

I was attempting to get back to my "normal" blogging as of today but my camera lens has broken. Never fear I've ordered another one so I thought I'd share with you some of the snaps I did with a shoot I had with Boohoo a few months ago. It was absolutely freezing and trying to shoot in central London without hundreds of people staring at you like and idiot! Find out more about the Boohoo Global Styler competition over on their website. But basically all yoju need to do where you can be in with the chance of winning a trip to the Fashion city of your choice. All you need to do is download and print out the speech bubble, snap yourself holding it and then tweet the photo over to Boohoo using the #globalstyler hashtag!

Day Three done! Today was actually pretty easy, I did backstage at Mark Fast and only went and ended up FROW-ing at the show. How lucky am I? Honestly, thats one of those things to tell the Grandkids! A dream come true. The show itself was lovely, a real mix of the brights that I've seen all over the shows this season and the usual neutrals for AW.  It was a really interesting show. However now I'm back home and the buzz has all gone, so many shows that I need to catch up on! Especially the much talked about Topshop Unique show which made my timeline go a little bit crazy for! Tomorrow is a quiet one for me as I'm doing one show and then going to the Zoo. Life of a Blogger eh?

london fashion week aw13 day two



Day Two, Done. Today wasn't very busy if I'm honest. I went to Jasper Conran, which at first I thought was very safe the usual Jasper Conran style, however as soon as they started bringing out the classic cuts in the neon shades I lost it. It was absolutely amazing and really confirmed that neons are definite must have's for Autumn Winter 2013. I decided to wear something a little different from the usual and went with a trouser suit. I know people will be like |wear more colour, it suits you yadda yadda" I do wear colour when I feel like it! I think it just goes to show that sometimes going against what is expected of you can be pretty darn special.

So, my first day of London Fashion Week went off without a hitch. Apart from the usual PPQ disaster with ticketing, meaning people who had seating tickets couldn't be seated and people standing didn't even stand a chance. Never again. Ooh look at me in a position to decline future shows. I'm joking of course! But seriously, every year. This was my outfit for day one, my usual monochrome look with a pop of red in the form of a rather snazzy last minute panic buy for my outfit. I wore my coat in typical fashion week wanker style, off the shoulder daaaa-hling. Something about Fashion Week means people forget how to do arm holes in coats!

So… Valentines Day. Yeah. Happy. Today has been some what of a blur, I've been super busy and Im still super busy as I type. I also need to go buy some bits for Fashion week and I'm also really ill again. Sniffle, Sniffle. Sometimes I feel like I'll never be better again, Oh well. Yayyy Fashion week is upon us again and as of tomorrow I shall be posting coverage in some form. My main hope is to meet my twin Cara Delevinge at some point backstage as I'm doing some show coverage! Dream big hey Melrose! I'll be doing some street style stuff as well as a video or two for my Youtube channel if I can get my camera to agree with me. Fashion week is hectic and always way too much, but it sure is an experience. I wouldn't miss it for the world!
