LFW: Style Crush

Spotted this stylish chica outside Somerset House during Fashion Week - literally fell in love with what she was wearing, SO super cool. Love the camo jacket with the statement red bag, the statement neon jewellery, the sunglasses... it just works, pretty bloody well.

Fringed Booties

I saw these boots on someone at Fashion Week, I absolutely love them but automatically thought they were Isabel Marant (my french designer crush), and that they would be wayyyy out of my price bracket, howeverrrrrr I was wandering the shops the other day and found them to be Zara.

Zara are doing phenomenally well at the moment, not only do they have the most amazing supply chain which enables them to get products from the design board and into shops within 2 weeks, their products are made out of great quality fabrics, at reasonable prices and they take lotsss of inspiration from 'of the moment' designers and hot styles. These boots are just one example.

Fringed Boots, £99, Zara

and the Isabel Marant ones from her catwalk show....

Ms. Anna Wintour Opening Rag & Bone, London

For me, this past London Fashion Week kicked off with Anna Wintour smashing a bottle against the outside of the new Rag & Bone store in Sloane Square, London.

I've met Anna Wintour once before at Wimbledon, I was a mere waitress and she was sitting in the VIP seats of Centre Court for the men's finals. I was in oar of her then, and then standing about half a foot away from her, 2 years on, I still am. She was smiling ear to ear (surprisingly!), and with over 20 or so photographer's screaming her name, she posed gracefully to everyone - including me. 

Happy way to kick off the week!
