london fashion week; topshop unique

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

agagagaga..
so i found out last night through a last minute email that I have a ticket with my name on it for the Topshop Unique show tomorrow (the start of London Fashion Week.)!

so very very excited, and while at first, I was quite laid back about outfits, I'm now bewildered.

there is the weather to think about; maybe the
shredded wool zip jumper won't be such a great option now that the blazing hot sun has finally come out.

my trusty office heels are fantastically comfortable heels, so of course I'll be wearing those.

please please, give me some ideas, i'm in need of a second opinion!

at the moment, I'm thinking of going down the ripped tights, black mini (with zipped pockets) for a bit of a grunge luxe look.

i'm so bloody excited; and i'll be taking along my camera to share the sights with you!

ps, exchanged a few texts with
dear abby yesterday; she was strolling through bryant park and had some exciting model spots! ask her more when she is back..

I think the ripped tights and the mini are a wonderful idea. You won't regret it if you wear black!! Oh god I don't know I would be tearing my hair out! Regardless of what you decide on it will be amazing and you'll have a great time!! We're trying not to be jealous and just be happy for you . . . It's hard.
Take lots of photos, we can't wait for the post!!

A dress never fails. But separates are more daring, and that's what LFW is about, non?

I'd go for the black mini you mentioned with the ripped tights. Add a different touch with the top. Perhaps you could go for a lace/silk camisole or a chunky knit jumper.

Hope this helps ;) and have tons of fun!!

Ooh can't wait to hear about the show, the zippy skirt sounds like it'll fit the bill.

Rollergirl said...

Yes, loving the idea of the ripped tights. If you need more ideas maybe check the Sartorialist from last LFW? I dunno, I never dress up because I'm too practical. My priority is comfort and warmth so I'll be in Cons, jeans and a Burberry scarf (er, and a top). I'm more concerned about what to pack for my lunch! Look out for me tomorrow I've emailed you my number!

i wish australia had a topshop.

The Clothes Horse said...

Oh, I can't wait to hear your view on it. The lux grunge sounds very appropriate at the moment.
P.S. Thinking rooftop parties sound cool period...even suburb roofs, in fact these might be so anti-cool that they become awesome...
