Snow in March, snow in March and what looks to be snow continuing into April. For a change we have been quite lucky up North and have just had constant blusters with nothing settling. I have to confess I really love it, its like movie snow! All the pretty flakes and none of the trudging through sludge, ruining my shoes. Which means I can revel in my snow-movie outfits of flowing capes and towering high heeled boots just like Carrie Bradshaw! My favourite look at the moment is tall boots and knee length dresses. These Vivienne Westwood boots are surprisingly comfortable for such a high stiletto, I adore them.
Wearing: All Vivienne Westwood – Worlds End tartan Alien Jacket, Gold Label jumper, Anglomania Centurella skirt, Pink suede Cossack boots, Pelle belt, Duffle bag.
It was only the other day I was whining to my friend Jason, how utterly gutted I get each time I see him wearing his blue tartan Alien jacket. I get the pangs of regret for not getting it myself a couple of years back. There aren’t many things which I have fashion regret over but this was certainly one high up on my list. It didn’t help that Bryan from Rather Dapper and Joey Ma have the jacket too, all three guys looking incredible in their jackets, making me kick myself again and again! Anyway the day after I had been going on about this jacket, what should appear like a juicy carrot dangled in front of my little donkey nose! Yup the very jacket! Of course I wasted no time in snapping up this beauty! In my excitement I forgot to ask what the size was and ended up with a jacket I could have made a tent out of but the tailors soon had it sorted – although blooming heck for anyone that uses Stitches in Manchester they have gone so expensive, any tips for a good tailor with reasonable prices please send them over. I love this tartan so much and of course my beloved Carrie Bradshaw boots! I don’t tend to play favourites with my shoes but, these would be up there if I did have to choose.
I’ve decided to have a wardrobe re-jig. I feel like I am stuck in a ‘aint got nothin to wear‘ state, which is obviously ridiculous because I have an insane about of clothes (and shoes, don’t mention the shoes). Just need to try new combinations and dig out old favourites. I am getting bored of this weather too, a tiny promise of Spring and then snow warnings again, meh. Also in dire need of a hair cut hence the rats tails.
Today I wore lots of fab finds from TK Maxx including this sleeveless trench dressed up with my furry Prada’s. You can see my Comic Relief T-shirt featuring Kate Moss, I also have the Tommy Cooper one which I will show soon. You can get your’s at TK Maxx, do something funny for money!
One of my personal favourite shows is always Louise Gray, I can’t get enough of her luxe street wear aesthetic. Titled Hey Crazy bonkers accessories included brooches and rings made from toilet rolls- try explaining that fashion to your mum!
Osman, I shot most of this show from the back- why? Because this is where the detail of the collection lay, keeping the front simple and letting the drama be created when the model took her turn.
It’s P’Trique!!!!! The best celeb I’ve spotted all Fashion Week, alas the pap’s were more excited over a member of One Direction. On the plus side it gave me some space to go snap P’Trique and tell him how much I love the YouTube Videos such as Sh*t Fashion Girls Say.
Fashion Scout Ones to Watch was technically yesterday but that post was already massive! Yeashin really hit my fashion spot with a spectacular collection featuring folkloric knitwear.
Today I wore a bit of a mixed up outfit, due to the whole random weather issue and a mix up with a dress I’d ordered I didn’t really have anything to wear especially for the Westwood show so threw this lot on, all Vivienne Westwood like you needed to ask! I have also been wearing my Comic Relief t-shirts but it’s been a bit too chilly to show them off, must remember to get a shot.
The most incredible colours and textures, next season it will be velvet boots with everything!
Dans la Vie
The prints, the prints always the most incredible prints! This season was no different with a serpent feel.
I joined the Bobbi Brown team backstage again, huge thanks to Irene, today at Orla Kiely. The look was a chic but laid back Bardot, smokey eye and subtle shimmer lip.
The show it’s self had a sexy-secretary cheeky nudge to it, one thing Kiely never fails to offer is a beautifully thought out show set. She put the girls to work 9-5, although in the most stylishly dressed office I have ever seen!
Bolzoni & Walsh
Tough biker girls, smouldering insouciantly in velvet and leathers, luxury basics at their best.
A beautiful array of pretty prints and bold colours, enjoy!
What Pearl Wore
Keeping with the knitwear theme I wore Vivienne Westwood again, I also had these beautiful vintage sunglasses from TK Maxx for when the sun decided to put in an appearance! I was wearing my Comic Relief t-shirt although it was a bit to chilly to show it off.
Street style trend of the day was snug knitwear and cosy hats – shame the sun came out and everyone was boiling!
The beautiful Kate Nash took her place on the front row at many shows today, she is always ready with a lovely smile. Strutting around the court yard were Made in Chelsea’s Lucy Watson, Mark-Frances Vandelli Orlov-Romanovsky and Victoria Baker-Harber.
What Pearl Wore
Due to insane weather confusion – S/S in the shops, snowing in Manchester and sunny in London packing for LFW was a bit of a fail! I ended up leaving behind all the gorgeous light and breezy clothes I originally had marked for LFW and stuffing heavy coats and knits into my cases (yes plural). Then spent the entire day being far to hot and wishing for snow, never can win! Luckily I had packed these amazing sunglasses from TK Maxx, they remind me of beetle wings. The rest of my outfit was Vivienne Westwood and my gorgeous Rianna Phillips clutch.
My make up is all Bobbi Brown, who I had the pleasure of joining back stage too…
Saving the best for last here are my two personal favourite shows of the day, up first was Bora Aksu (first two images). A Gothic-romance of 1920′s skull cap style head wear and floaty dresses, cinched in with intricate corsets. The chiffon capes were otherworldly, I look forward to writing the full review. Next Jena.Theo, a more personal presentation where I got to go backstage with the Bobbi Brown team. The make up look was fresh and dewy with a pop of reddy-pink lipstick to match the footwear of course! The nails were an amazing contrast of black leather-effect polish and bright orange and pink neon. This all made sense when the collection was revealed, a bright and cheerful array of smiley face emblazoned over-sized jumper dresses and striking broken graphic prints in black, orange, yellow and pink. You can also see Irene’s nails from the Bobbi Brown team, she has a version of the mani I showed on my blog last post but shaped the tips into more of a heart shape for Valentines day, cute right!
More tomorrow and don’t forget to pick up The Sunday Telegraph for the Stella magazine this Sunday
This was after getting a soaking on Sunday. It was freezing but I wanted to wear my Red Label velvet shorts so I pulled out these leg warmers, I hadn’t worn for absolutely ages, had them years. Are legwarmers still cool? In fact were they ever cool? Who knows, I love them anyway. Make me come over all Flashdance.They are a nice alternative to wearing boots.
