LFW Day 02

 photo hair_zpsrgfoeaol.jpg

Day 02 of London Fashion Week was awesome as I had time to start my day at The Apartment with the gorgeous Sean of Hersheons blow dry bar, who did a beautiful job of taming my wild locks!

In-between hair and make-up I scoffed some of this lovely breaky.

Getting my make-up done by Illamasqua from Asos Beauty was just so special - their products are so lush and lasted the whole day with out any touch ups! BONUS!

Arriving at Somerset House in this super fly Hyundai was made even more fun because our driver was a complete comedian and entertained us from show to show! His banter was so sharp we just giggled our way around London! - Love this kind of people.

Keeping me fully charged over fashion week was this little MiLi iphone charger discreetly disguised as a phone case! It was so handy and the fact that it slips into my clutch bag is such a perfect touch, I really would recommend it as there was no flapping about with wires handing out of my bag - you know what I'm talk'n about!!!

Check me out getting street style papped and pretending to be all cool about it - I am much more comfortable on the other side of the camera when it comes to street style'n. Having a complete stranger take your photo is so disconcerting because I cant control the edit and I like to be in control of my own images because I am a photo control freak. Although I cant complain as I asked plenty of people if I could snap them and just expected them to be cool with it!

Talking about photos these were taken by my lovely little Sister The Illustrated Baker and the fab Bunni Punch

I Am Wearing :
Sweater Dress - Monki
Pastel Fur Stole - Miss Selfridge
Checked Handbag - Asos
Checked Slip Ons - Asos
Fur Pom Pom Keyring - River Island

I hope you enjoyed getting a sneak peek into my time at The Apartment - being pampered by the talented folk at Asos beauty was a real treat and I feel so blessed by them :)

I am so excited to share with you a little styling project I was involved in with Asos Fashion Finder and 7 other fabulous female fashion bloggers showcasing some of Spring Summers biggest trends!

As you can see I was challenged to style the "Future Fresh" trend working with River Island and boy did I have fun putting this outfit together!

The Future Fresh trend is all about mixing metallics with prints, holographics and novelty pieces. It's about having fun with futuristic fabrics whilst still giving a nod to the 90's trend from last season, so don't whack those flatforms and scrunchies on ebay just yet! 

Make sure you check out all of the other girls takes on the SS15 trends, they have all the wardrobe inspiration you will need for the upcoming seasons!

I'm off to LFW this weekend - to keep up to date make sure you check out my instragram 

Come say hi if you see me on the cobbles I'll be the girl with the big camera taking street style pics!

My coat was a Christmas gift from one of my sisters and I am soooo happy with it! The colour is just perfect - I don't have anything else like it at all - don't you just love it when a Christmas gift fills that little hole in your winter wardrobe?!

I don't usually say this but I hope January stays cold so I can make the most of this beauty.

Little Red Chelsea Boots

I Am Wearing : 

Red Fedora - Colette (Australia)
Fur Stole - c/o New Look 
Grey Zip Cape - Asos
Blue Skinny Jeans - c/o Next
Red Chelsea Boots - Marks & Spencer

I have really enjoyed wearing this outfit, its my fav 2015 outfit so far (only 12 days in, I know, I'm shallow!).  

These M&S (yes I said M&S) boots are incredibly comfy and the colour is just too perfect., and I can't tell you how long I have been looking for the perfect multi-colour stole (at a price I could afford). Ever since I laid eyes on the Meadham Kirchhoff fur stole for TopShop - I know this one is'nt as brightly colour or as fluffy but I love it all the same. It's a great price and at just £20 it is an amazing quality faux fur - WIN WIN!

Also I am enjoying wearing my new "waist enhancing" skinny jeans - they are a lovely fit and after a Christmas of over indulging my waist needs all the enhancing it can get. 

3 very important requirements from a January outfit, and I have got them all are covered here :-)

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend - is it too early to be hoping for the next?
