LONDON FASHION WEEK WITH TIPPERARY CRYSTAL ACCESSORIES

I’m just back from London Fashion Week where you might have seen that I was shooting a collaboration with Tipperary Crystal Accessories. I am a such a fan of dressing up every day outfits with jewellery, bags and sunglasses to transform even the most basic things in my wardrobe. With my stylist hat on, I think investing in some key pieces to wear with your Autumn Winter finery is a good way to start building your new season style. One…

MY LONDON FASHION WEEK STYLE PART I

It’s that time of year again. Yep, I am back in London for fashion week and checking out the style for Autumn Winter 2018/19. It’s hard to think that far ahead when Spring hasn’t sprung. But I am embracing colour while I am here to try and get into a lighter mood for the season ahead. The weather has been glorious as my Mum would say, and it’s the ideal time to lighten up the textures and explore some new…

Backstage with Aveda

Backstage with Aveda

Going backstage at any show is a real honour, but when Aveda ask you it’s even more special. Known for exceptional hair care, Aveda have been long supporters of designers involved with fashion weeks around the world. And I got to experience this first hand at London Fashion Week last month. First stop was at Roberta Einer (who is new to LFW) and to a full head of brushed out curls to achieve a retro look to complement the collection.…

A new Buy Now Wear Now Collection from Topshop Unique

Topshop knows how to do a catwalk show I tell you. Topshop Unique was no different for this year, except for the small matter that the collection was shop-able the second the show was over. This is a new movement. Tommy Hilfiger and Burberry are doing it too and perhaps it’s only a matter of time before we are previewing and shopping in season. The days of seeing the show months in advance, then waiting for magazines to print the…

Style Lessons from London Fashion Week

Fashion is ever an ever moving, ever changing and ever volatile thing. Trying to define what fashion is, is dependent on a couple of things, but the most important to me is how we see it on ourselves. How we style a coat, how we wear a shoe, how we accessorize. It’s so personal that what I may see as something “fashionable” someone else might see as dowdy. So basically, you just can’t define it by theory. You can define…

London Fashion Week Outfit Diary with Mint Velvet

I can’t believe I am back at London Fashion Week and my first outfit post from Day one comes from Mint Velvet. I style from Mint Velvet so much, so I feel like I know the brand inside out at this stage. For my look on Day One, I wanted to keep the look casual, and simple. I am always trying way too hard for fashion week when it comes to my outfits so this season I am staying true…

London Fashion Week Outfit of the Day with PurpleTag.ie

London Fashion Week Outfit of the Day with PurpleTag.ie

I’ve teamed up with PurpleTag.ie for this post all about boots.  When at fashion week, your feet become your priority. You have to stay comfortable and dry all day. It’s not like I have a driver to cart me around the city to shows. Oh no. It’s not that glam unless you’re Olivia Palermo. These boots are from Vagabond and are a lovely deep black suede. But their most notable quality is the mid-heel. I could stay in these all…

London Fashion Week – Outfit of the Day

London Fashion Week is drawing to a close but it’s time to share my outfit posts! I fell hard for this outfit from Zara, which is part of the new Autumn Winter collection. Tulle is a great fabric and it feels very elegant; even in the daytime! The elasticated waist creates shape and it means I can tuck in any kind of top to make sure I have a waist. The top is lace with a white seam through it…

London Fashion Week AW16 with Primark

London Fashion Week AW16 may have been in February, but the fallout is just starting. Now we get to look at trends for next season as well as analysing the best of the street style (You can take a look at one of my favourite sites Who What Wear to check out the best of it from fashion month). I was not devoid of the odd attempt at a street style snap and thanks to some nice denim and accessories,…
