London Fashion Week SS'13: What I Wore

Hey Mixbagers! After my last street style post I thought I would do a feature on what I wore down to the cobbled streets of Somerset house for fashion week last week! It luckily turned out to be quite a sunny day so I happily wore the beaut Motel Digital Love print shift dress I had been given! MTV babe Lilah Parsons has also been spotted wearing it, so naturally I now feel like I  can claim I have something in common with a famous Chanel model haha! *air high five

Hollyanna Shift Dress in Digital Love Print c/o Motel // £35
Topshop Faux Leather Jacket // Similar here
H&M Black Bowler Hat // £7.99
New Look Chunky Strap Platform Heels // £27.99
Stud Clutch c/o Next // N/A
 I absolutely adore the bright digital print- it's a pretty stand out design with it's mirrored images and mish mash of neon colours and as much as I had a bit of a 'it's fashion week so I've GOT to look fashionable' stress on, I found my classic biker jacket from Topshop and bowler hat from H&M ended up suiting it the most anyway! I have to say with my dress on the train to London I felt like a right bundle of colour amongst all the suits and ties, but hey it was Fashion Week and it's got to be done right?! Shoes-wise I ended up opting for the chunkiest wedge of a platform I have ever worn. My mum was convinced I was going to come home with a broken ankle or something (I'm quite clumsy at the best of times!) but surprisingly I found them quite comfy and I arrived home ankles in tact and all!

Above is a photo of me and two of the other Motel girls Lucia and Holly c/o Motel! You must check out Lucia's blog 'Style Confessional' if you haven't already!

A pic of the entrance and a close up of my exhibition pass! In all honesty I was a bit nervous that I would get turned down mid application for the bloggers pass and have to do a shameful walk away but thankfully it was all absolutely fine!

So here are some snaps of what was in the exhibition rooms! Alongside all the designer showcases, it was a bit of a bloggers hub with laptops everywhere, MAC makeovers and free vitamin waters being dispensed out all over!

Gorgeous Liam Fahy Shoes! I couldn't even pick a pair they were all so amazing! I recommend checking out the website!
Shoe crush on these Liam Fahy dalmatian print wedges!
Sophia Webster Shoes & Bags. So crazy aren't they amazing?!
Topshop NEWGEN area. Each Newgen designer had their own slot machine with an individual pin design you could choose from and keep!

I have a new jewellery designer crush on Le Nereides. A beautiful Parisienne brand who have a right mixture of gorgeous designs!  

I think I can safely say I got Fashion Week fever and was desperate to go back next day! I can't wait to head down to the next season shows now I'm no longer a fashion week newbie I reckon I'll be brave enough haha!

Did any of you go to LFW?

London Fashion Week Street Style

Hi guys! As those of you who follow me on Twitter etc will know, I hit up the first day of London Fashion Week last Friday with all the gals at Motel Rocks! I was super duper excited as I had never been before and even though I wasn't going to any shows, I couldn't wait to get involved in the atmosphere around Somerset house and do a bit of blogger/celeb spotting. It really was one of the best days, I managed to meet and photograph so many lovely stylish folk and got to chat to the fab ladies behind some of my regular-read blogs! Honestly they were all so nice and friendly -Big Hello/Sorry to Sammi from Beauty Crush who I gushed to for a while about how much I love her blog and the lovely Olivia from What Olivia Did and Alka from Superstar Magazine - I even had a little chat with Mark and Victoria from Made in Chelsea (who I can confirm are definitely if not posher in real life - yah darlings) and walked right past Mollie from The Saturdays and Hilary Alexander, one of my all time favourite journalists from The Telegraph! 

I will do another post very soon about my outfit and the blogger side- but here are a load of my street style pics from the day for a little fash-piration!
