So it's looks as though it's been a hectic few days at LFW and with tons of press/bloggers/buyers attending you can always guarantee that there will be enough catwalk photos taken to last a lifetime. Sometimes it can become a bit monotonous looking at the same regurgitated photos so I have been looking through various blogs and photo sites to try and find the most interesting pictures that tell the story of this years February LFW. Below are some of my faves that I have put together.

Hope you've all had a fashionably good week!

So LFW is officially in full swing! Unfortunately most of us (including myself) will have to spend the week getting the low down through other peoples photos and reviews of the event. However after being fortunate enough to attend LFW last year alongside designer Hannah Marshall I have also seen some of the not so glamorous sides of going to LFW, like the hours of waiting around and general hecticness. None the less it is an experience, and one that if you get the chance should definitely be jumped at. However this year I feel content sitting with my feet up, and looking at the constant flow of photos being uploaded. 
Above is a photo of me being bossy backstage at LFW last year. Wearing Hannah Marshall.

I will be keeping my eyes open and posting some of my favourite photos from 2012 LFW in the next few days.

Hello all! My how the past week has gone by so quickly, yet my list of things to do seems to be ever growing. I am hoping to get back into the swing of things with my blog over the next few weeks so please bare with me. Also please feel free to email/comment any suggestions you may have! Anyway onto more fashion related happenings. This weekend I was extremely excited to have the opportunity to put on my best frock and dress up-to the nines as I attended a Masquerade ball. I think the joy of dressing up in our clothes is something a girl never really grows out of, and why should we! Especially as events in which require such formal attire seem to happen very in-frequently in my life, it's nice to have a change from the usual clubbing/going out dress or formal day-wear.

Luckily for me a friends of mine (who obviously gets more invites to these type of events) lent me a masque, which went perfectly with my outfit. As for my dress, nor the hanger or the picture particularly do it justice however I can tell you that when worn, the clingy material and elongated shape is extremely sophisticated ans sexy. Although you can't really see from the photo the dress has a large split at the front, which reveals just the right amount of leg, and the high neck line at front is contrasted beautifully with the open, low back of the dress. In my opinion if you are going for a classy but sexy look, I think a low cut back is definitely the way to go rather than a revealing neck line, that more often than not can end up looking too much or unflattering. I will do a later post that has photo's of me in the dress so you can judge for yourselves.

Dress: Miss Selfridge     Bag: Vintage     Masque: Borrowed

Happy mid-week!

Today rather than browsing the usual online clothes shops I have instead been scouring the web for some good reads, of which I came across the 'Cupcakes and Cashmere' book. When I began blogging this year, the Cupcakes and Cashmere blog was one of the first style blogs that I really fell in love with; the mix of great food/recipes and stylish clothes, in my mind is the perfect combination for any girl! Now seeing that Emily Schuman (of Cupcakes and Cashmere) is releasing a book based on her blog is of course great news. Like my clothes I am also very picky about what I read, and revel in keeping my bookshelf looking as stylish(and colour coordinated) as my wardrobe! But when Cupcakes and Cashmere is released in August this year I have no doubt it will be one of those books that you always want to keep at hand for inspiration. Hurry up August! What are your favourite fashion/style books? I would love to hear any of your recommendations. 

Above are snippits from the Cupcakes and Cashmere blog. Have a gander.

P.s welcome all my new followers, thanks for joining!

Hello. Today I have been working on my newest project which is exploring the idea of fashion and identity. It may sound boring and put some of you to sleep but so far the research that I have found has been very interesting and provoking particularly as I have recently felt slightly lost when it has come to defining my own fashion style. So I thought it would be interesting to investigate the expression of 'judging a book by it's cover' to see if our fashion sense really does reveal truths about our personality and who we are. Below are photos of my 2 lovely housemates wearing their casual everyday wear. Below each photo there are also a list of 4 degrees and of course only one of them is the actual degree that they study. So please give it a go and leave a comment with your guess on what each of my housemates study purely by looking at their outfits. I will reveal the answers on Friday so until then have a guess and see if your savvy fashion instincts are right! 

A. Politics      B. Music      C. Biology      D. Healthcare

A. Environmental Science      B. History      C. Math      D. German

Have a good Monday!

I know it has only just turned February but I cant help but get excited by the trickle of summer dresses that already seem to be popping up in the high street shops! And as much as I love the layered winter look I am definitely looking forward to the simplicity of just a floaty summers dress and sandals. Anyway this got me reminiscing about my last summer and a little visit to London that I took with my sisters. Below are some of my snaps from the day and you can really see how the sun does make everything look so much better!
Dress: Topshop      Shoes: Neiman Marcus      Nail Varnish: H&M      Sunglasses: Topshop

I love the girls floaty skirt in the photo above, such a great colour. So anyone else already thinking about the summer!...
