Smart Stylin'

Does anyone have that one really smart dress? I always wear this one for interviews, meetings and just when I'm trying to quite professional. It's from French Connection and I've had it about two years now but It really goes with the whole monochrome grid trend that's going on right now.
I paired it with my trench coat which is the perfect jacket for Autumn and my new LYDC handbag from the Anna Smith Collection. It's the perfect size to pop my laptop in and has cute studded details on the bag.

Dress* - French Connection
Trench Coat* - Persunmall
Shoes - Primark
Bag* - Anna Smith from LYDC
Necklace - Vintage

Let me know if you have that one interview dress that you can't ever go wrong with?

London Fashion Week Round-up: Day Four - Burberry and Bloggers Love!

Day four of Fashion Week was my last full day and a quiet one. If you've followed me for a while you'll know that it's a tradition that i pop over to the Burberry show every season to take some street style snaps and celebrity spot. One day I'd really love to be invited to the show but for now this is still very exciting. 
The Burberry tent was set up on Kensington Gore opposite The Royal Albert Hall. My photo's aren't the best as I wasn't concentrating on getting photo's. We managed to spot a few famous faces such as Anna Wintour, Jamie Campbell Bower, Olivia Palermo and Paloma Faith. If you've seen the coverage of the show you'll know that Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss was sat FROW - Their appearance caused absolute mayhem. 
I just want to add that Paloma Faith and Jamie Campbell Bower are the nicest people ever. Always willing to talk to everyone and have a joke.

After Burberry we caught the tube to The Tower Of London as I really wanted to see the pretty poppies. It was really a sight worth seeing. 

The next and final stop of my LFW was the Blogger's Love.. Gifting Suite Party. This was held at The Penthouse in Leicster Square which I need to mention, the views from their balcony - OH WOW. You could see all of London, It was truly amazing.
There was some amazing brands showcasing their products to us bloggers with a few catwalk shows every so often. I discovered some amazing brands such as Glam Drawer, House of Trendella, Love Lola, Rhomes Boutique, Ameilia Jane and many more!

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how amazing this diamond encrusted chanel bottle is from Dolly's Bling Shop! The owners were absolutely lovely and you should go check them out!
I need these hats in my life, also loving the floral crowns from Amelia Jane London!
These Love Lola bags really caught my eye, they not only had the standard shoppers but now have these cute leather bags!

I wish I'd have taken more photo's at the event as there was some fab brands there! It was so nice to network although it was so busy! I'm heading into Uni for my first day back to do a presentation which I'm pretty nervous about so wish me luck guys!

London Fashion Week Looks: Day Four

Day four of London Fashion Week was a lot more chilled, we only attended one event and celebrity spotted at Burberry but that's for another post. 
I decided to wear my new monochrome duster coat from New Look although It turned out to be waaay too hot. I paired it with a gorgeous roll neck blouse from therapy at House Of Fraser and my Topshop Jamie jeans. A very casual look, keeping it simple yet not too boring. 

Boots - ASOS
Duster Coast - New Look
Backpack - Primark

This was my last London Fashion Week look! Let me know in the comments below which was your favorite!

London Fashion Week Round-up: Day Three

Day Three was pretty exciting for me! Lavazza kindly sent me and Liv to the Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Show. I'm still slightly in shock that we went and It was definitely the highlight of my week.
The collection just blew my mind, full of bright stripes, cricket inspired accents and gorgeous prints. I loved the printed backpacks and chunky sandals - I think I'll have to look into getting my hands on the backpack. I have a few favourite looks from the show which you can see below.

After a breakfast break at Patisserie Valerie we dashed over to Lincoln's Inn Fields for the Palmer//Harding presentation. The venue was incredible, like something out of Harry Potter. 
Along with a lot of collections at Fashion Week there was a lot of White on White ensembles. All the models were wearing sparkly silver mesh pumps. The collection was very sophisticated and feminine with soft embellishments.

After Palmer//Harding, I went along to the Edeline Lee presentation held on the river terrace in Somerset House (Which I didn't even know existed!). The presentation was lovely, lot's of pastels and girly designs. The make-up was so on-point with the eye-liner matching the coloured theme of the huts. It was a great little collection with live music to complement the clothes. (Also, All the models were insanely gorgeous!)

 Then it was off to the Swedish School of Textiles at Fashion Scout. It was such an interesting show with lot's of different graduates showing their collections. Some of them would've have been perfect on the likes of Lady GaGa. It was amazing to see such extravagant designs on the catwalk. 
Afterwards, we went to the Fashions Finest show which was also a designer showcase with different designers and boutiques including Izelia - An African inspired collection with a mix of sportswear and Wearing Moments - A jewellers who presented their collection on models wearing morph suits.

Sunday was one of my favorite days at LFW, The preen show was just amazing and I was so thankful to have been able to attend!
Now, I'm back to reality and grafting out my dissertation proposal - Wish me luck guys!
