Right! Last fashion week post! I had such a bother narrowing down which pictures to use for this post- as you can see I didn't do a great job, but hey it compensates for the one picture posts I usually do, right? Anyway, this is what I wore on Day 5- I was getting pretty worried about what to wear, but finally decided that out of anything- I work simple best, so went for a bright jumper, jeans and matching lipstick, for something understated and comfy! I tried to make the most of my last day at Somerset house and as well as seeing the pretty crazy Bollywood inspired collection by Ashish, paid a visit to the exhibition and fell in love with a great deal of it- I'm certainly lusting over a good percentage of the NEWGEN t shirts! I also bumped into (lingered round until I could take a picture) the lovely Kate Nash- how amazing does she look!?

(Day 4: Outfit: Jacket: H&M, Blazer: River Island, Top: French Connection, Hat: Topshop, Jeans: Topshop, Shoes: Urban Outfiters, Bag: Mulberry, Somerset House, Christian Blanken)

On day 4 I paid a visit to see the super talented Christian Blanken show, which was awesome- lots of sharp clean tailoring, fluid draping all mixed in with a hint of 'sports luxe'. I also decided to wear one of my favourite go-to outfits (see striped top & jeans combo) teamed with a hat- which was a pretty brave move for me (not quite as brave as some of the things you see at fashion week though...) but I'm happy with the result, and love how the burgundy from the hat compliments the blazer peeking out from my jacket (how very technical of me!). I hope you've all had a lovely week, and have enjoyed my fashion week posts! Tomorrow morning I have a super exciting collaboration I'll be talking about so keep your eyes peeled!

  3. Purvis, stop being my girl crush please! xxx (ps, 100% understand the whole not-really-stalking-but-you-kind-of-are thing in regards to Nash, except my instance was with Leith Clark and a disposable camera. Cringe.)

  4. Amazing photos, amazing outfits, amazing experience, you saw Chung and Geldof - amazing, this couldn't seem any more amazing.

    Glad your nerves passed, and you seemed to have the most incredible time. It all looks so pretty but really surreal to see the 'insider scoop'. The shows looked so awesome and you got some great seats.

    As for your outfits every day, I LOVE THEM. The conservative style is what makes them all so cool. Very much love the burgundy hat outfit and the coral (?) colour blazer looks lovely too.

    Very jealous all in all :) One day eh xx

  8. Oddly enough, I kind of copied the Nash's hair about 6 months ago by getting a blonde streak in my black hair (at the time she was auburn). Now we've come some funny full circle and she's kind of copying me. Although I do not style mine to the full potential displayed here! If I'd have met her I would have had difficulty keeping my stalkerish love under wraps- I probably would have just asked if we could be best friends forever and hyperventilated.
    I really like the burgundy with the stripes, and the panther shoes are amazing.
