I was so bummed out to have missed out on London Fashion Week itself (I intend to go next year and nothing will stop me!! I've missed it enough times) but I made it to London Fashion Weekend with my sister, the shopping event that takes place the weekend after LFW at the same venue (Somerset House).
It's basically a huge sample sale where you can buy clothes, shoes and accessories from a variety of designers from Vivienne Westwood to Mawi to DKNY to Juicy Couture. I snapped a few crappy pictures on my phones camera (bad blogger!) to document my day. I'll post my purchases and a few more photos next update!
A gorgeous khaki trench with insane embellishment
A nubbly, snuggly, alpaca cardigan.. I would've bought this but I have to tell myself that spring/summer is coming and I need to focus on that wardrobe now!
All Saints-style necklaces - totally DIYable with a few keys and a couple of chains. Go forth and create, fellow bloggers! :)
This crazy gladiator ankle boot thingy mesmerised me for a good 3 minutes. Soooo impractical.
Patent clutches and cute kitschy necklaces from Anna Lou of London - this place has the most amazing range of accessories (and one of my purchases came from here!).
Lungta de Fancy - A korean/japanese (not sure which) designed & British made line that made this crazy/sexy/cool tinselly purple body-con dress! Tempted by this too BUT I just ordered a T by Alexander Wang purple body-con dress and can't justify another!
A few miscellaneous shots of Somerset house:
One of my purchases was this waisted baby blue "workers skirt" from American Retro (I think)! Tried it on and couldn't push through the crowd to a mirror so I got my sister to snap a few pictures of it. Can't wait to wear it in summer with little tank tops and corset bras.
Happy after a day of shopping!
Sister moved backwards to include the full pile of our bags on the floor... sooo exhausted!
Hugs and kisses,
