What to wear to Fashion Week

Now, I won't get on a high horse and act all cool and uninterested, because I must admit I'm very excited to be going to my second Topshop Unique show on saturday. The last collection was brilliant and with whispers of a space theme doing the rounds this one could top the last, as galaxy prints and anything cosmos related are just my cup of tea.

of course, there is the ever present question of what to wear. seasoned fashion editors and industry insiders alike will play this one down; and fair enough too because after traipsing around show after show, relentless waiting, and watching as the novelty slowly wears off, they'll be thinking more about their next looming deadline.

but for the amateurs like myself, this squeal of delight slowly turns to nervousness at the prospect of choosing an outfit to wear as you stand in the same room as alexandra shulman (well, alex..not so much.), kate lanphear, alexa chung, roisin murphy et al (namedrop, me?).

ah, what the hell. I'm off to London tomorrow morning and still haven't packed. I ended up making a "The Row" and Taghrid inspired video instead (the irony of procrastination!) which considering my complete lack of knowledge in the editing field, I'm fairly pleased with.

I may or may not get a chance to post until after the show on saturday, but shall be back with a fun little report and some snaps hopefully.

oh i can't get over these clever outfit posts! I'm sure whatever you where, you'll look awesome judging by the garb we've seen (read:envy)

Though it would be extra-amazing if you could turn up in a 'shoulder action' bedsheet dress! I kind of want one haha

Good luck, darling and have fun :)

ohh i love your video. it's so hard to pick a favourite look as you look so good in all of them. i did love the floral dresses and the first skirt outfit. have fun at fashion week and say hi to alexa for me.

oh how i love this! & oh how i wish i was there to help you decide, the next morning us both leaving for ldn town & hopeful dreams of bumping into a chloe or ro...

anyways

my favourite look out of these has to be (naturally) the second look. the button up shirt & trousers, although from what i could see i wasnt totally feeling the belt. but thats just me being honest & never liking too many accessories.

it looks so smart & fresh.

& really this was the cutest video ever. & oh yes text me loads throughout the weekend to keep me ontop of every little thing, yes?

eee! im so excted for you! so excited.

lots of love xxxx

ps, would love it if you could comment that post. i want everyone to see what you think too!

Home Girl said...

another fabulous post. such a treat to see inside your world and wardrobe! that bow tie is so quirky & hot! love the floral playsuit (are they padded shoulders i spy) and the floral dress - i'm a big florals chick - layered with the tights. love the blazer. its all working. glaxies & florals all mixed up and a bow tie is my vote. did i mention i am a maximalist?! hope u have a fab time hobnobbing, can't wait to read your report and hopefully see what you wore xx
