London Fashion Week: Day One.

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

I didn't take anywhere near as many photos as I had planned at LFW there was just too much happening all at once..too much to take in.. too many people to talk to, tweet to.
It was madness and the best two days ever!!

The Outfit: Dress: Asos Black label, Belt: borrowed from my brother, Necklace: Topshop,
Bracelet & Ring: Crete market, Black Stone ring & loafers: Asos. ( I had boots on but my feet were killing me by about 3pm so I changed to these)

Jen & Me. Susie & Jazmine. Susie, Carrie, Me, Charlotte & Sian. Lily & Michelle. Sherin.
Loved meeting all these lovely bloggers they were all so nice in 'real life' :)
esp my new bff Jen!
I hit the IFB event with Lily on the Friday were we got to ask questions and get insider tips from the experts like Susie Bubble. Was a good event although not in depth enough..
They did win me over with lots of free champagne and crumpets thou.. Im anyone's best friend for food!
Me & Jen..sorry Jen & I.. I realise my grammer is terrible..
hit the exhibitions on Friday afternoon, was inspiring seeing all the collections for Spring Summer 2012. I love this watery grey/cerise leaf print in the far right of last photo.

Highlights of LFW day one
#1 Meeting all these lovely girls and Gem from Gem Fatale who I didnt get a photo with.
#2 Having loads of people ask to photograph me and my outfit, two pics you can see here
on Skyliving (no 24) and Cosmopolitan Street Style here.
#3 heading for dinner with like 20 other bloggers and then heading back to my hotel room for a mini blogger party!
