#OOTD - London Fashion Week

Ahhh fashion week, what a way to make you hate your entire wardrobe, feel a bit chunks and generally hate life. I dealt with that by eating Pizza, drinking prosecco and hanging out with the coolest and most loveliest blogging babes.  

My weekend was spent with the legends that are CarmenMeganLolliLindseyLaura and Leigh all top girls, top bloggers and top drinking partners so I was in excellent company.

Friday night we headed over to most stunning apartment at the very luxurious ME Hotel where we enjoyed free prosecco thanks to UGG UK.  I can safely say they were the most amazing hosts with the most amazing soft furnishings, I could have quite easily curled up on the sofa underneath the mountain of blankets and forgotten all about LFW!  
After drinking the bar dry and getting kicked out (lads) we headed off to Wagamama where we bought another bottle of Proseco (standard) and scoffed Katsu Curry like we have never seen food before.  It was also the night which marked a momentous occasion as I tried Calamari, a day I never thought I would see, I was actually pleasantly surprised!  

Saturday went a bit like this - in the morning I went over to Fashion Scout and watched the Youjia Jin show, grabbed a pret, mooched around Somerset House, took some blog photos, watched the Danielle Romeril presentation then hit up the UGG Sanctuary and drank more proseco before heading out to Covent Garden where we ate pizza from Homeslice and drunk, yes you got it, more proseco.

Basically, Best Weekend Ever.

LFW: Smythson Iconic Clutch

LFW has arrived!!! Sadly I am still manning my desk at work as couldn’t get the time off but don’t worry as soon as 5pm hits I’ll be making my way from East to West to meet some of my faves for cocks, chats and LFW goss. 

 Anyhoo, to feel part of fashion weeks first day I have put together some outfit inspo for a suitable FROW look as I was recently contacted by Smythson to show how I would style up their iconic large pouch from their Maddox Collection (obvs not for me, way not cool enough to ever be FROW but it’s a laugh to imagine right!). 

 It’s clear to see why this is called ‘Iconic’ as this statement clutch is a stylish mixture of contrasting shades - the white, grey and green and all make for one eye catching bag. I wanted the pouch to be the stand out piece of the outfit so decided on a palette of whites and greys to compliment it and make the green in the bag pop.  LFW is pretty tiring and heels, although they complete most outfits can be painful!  I thought a sleek pair of all white Nike Roshe Runs were a much more cobble and show dashing appropriate. 

 What do you think to my grey, minimalistic look? What are you guys wearing to LFW, I’d love to know! For tomorrow I am currently looking at vintage denim, slogan tee's, fringing leather and leopard print - think London cool, 70's tassels and 90's throwback!
Hmmm sounds like a recipe for disaster at the moment doesn't it!

Black & White for life

Monochrome seems to be ruling my styling senses at the moment, every outfit I'm donning is made up of the trusted black & white palette.  I love bright colour, patterns and prints so hopefully when the sun starts to make more of an appearance maybe my love for colour will resurface!  

Moving on to the heavily monochrome outfit in question... this dress is probably one of my most treasured bargains, found in the M&S January sales by my mum (a fellow bargain hunter) it was reduced from £59 down to £11, say whaaaaat.
  
This dress has previously taken me from office to after-hours in style as it has the smart work wear vibe but can easily be rocked for drinks in the evening, however this time I was wearing it to a lunch with some of the fam when I was visiting home last weekend so I whacked the Superstars out for a more chilled approach!

What do you think of this M&S bargain and the monochrome rut I am finding myself in?

Stripe Flares

My stripe and new found flare love continues.
I bagged a bargain on EBay with these monochrome, stripe, wide leg trousers and I absolutely love them especially as they only cost me £5 - god love the sellers of EBay!  I wore them high waisted which meant they were a perfect length with flats and kept the rest of the outfit simple with all black as they were quite the eye catching trouser!  

I am finding it hard to put a paragraph together tonight as the last 3 days I have been working at Pure London so my brain is frazzled and my feet are sore!  I am in bed enjoying The Secret lives of 4 year olds which is just adorable, easy watching and making me giggle!  I'll be back next time with a more chatty post but right now it's Night, Night from me.

Ghost London

Ghost London, a brand I thought would only be the go to site for that extra special occasion dress, a glamorous event piece or even along the lines of bridesmaids.  Turns out I was wrong.  
They actually have a gorgeous selection of coats, blouses and trousers, in fact this beautiful Oxblood Red crepe trouser and vest combo is the perfect example of what else they can do.  I was recently contacted by them and asked to style up a look from their site and this set caught my eye, I am not sure if they were designed with the idea to be worn together but actually I quite like it, I thought it was more me so here we go, head to toe red and a flash of monochrome checks were the look of this weekend!  

Talking about red, I have excellent news, I ordered my first glass of red wine down the pub yesterday and oh how I enjoyed it.  After a cold picture taking sesh me and my housemate settled in the pub with a bag of crisps and some wine, how warming is red wine, who knew, self confessed red wine convert over here. Hollaaaaaa.

Work chat and a new coat

Apart from learning to like red wine (I am nearly 30 surely red wine should be one of my favourite tipples by now?) one of my new year’s resolutions was to become more personal with you guys.   I wanted to include more chat about life, work and love (massive jokes on the love part, seems I am doomed to be single forever) so you can get to know me a little better.  One of my favourite things about reading blogs regularly are when posts get personal, oh hang on is that me just being nosey?

Well anyway I thought I would babble on a bit about my current job - I work for a brand called People Tree as part of their wholesale team which means I get to look after all our lovely UK stockists, I sell the latest collections and travel to locate new business around the UK.  We are currently well into SS15 and already selling AW15 from our East End London showroom and at tradeshows so it’s been a busy start to the year! 

People Tree is recognized by the fashion industry as a pioneer in Fair Trade and environmentally sustainable fashion, so as you can imagine it has been an eye opening fashion brand to work for.  I am a thrifty shopper and a lover of vintage and second hand clothing People Tree has definitely taught me that Fair Trade fashion can be ‘fashionable’, trend aware and above all amazing quality.

Originally (before and after studying Fashion with Photography at uni) I started out working in an exclusive clothing boutique, I was there for 9 years which defiantly set me in good stead for the working world!  After graduating I stepped into the joys of full time in employment, where I found a marketing role working for a retail homeware giant, after that I worked for a renowned beauty brand in their customer service department and then onto sales and merchandising this time working for a leisure retail giant – a bit of a mix bagged retail addict you could say.  Obviously alongside this, I blog which is tough but totally worth it, even if I didn't blog I would spend all my evenings reading them and weekends wearing my favourite outfits so I might as well have a little Internet space for myself, eh!
So here I am full time worker, part time blogger.

In today’s post after I have waffled on about my old little work life I thought I would show you my outfit wearing a new handwoven coat from People Tree’s SS15 collection
