Zara Jumper / Zara Skort / New Look Boots / Topshop Socks / Primark Satchel / Michael Kors Watch / Ciate Ferris Wheel
And so we come to the last day in my London Fashion Week Diary (You can now escape the seriously photo heavy posts for a while), day number three. This sunny Sunday brought a bit of a lay in followed by a leisurely breakfast, lots of outfit photos by the London Eye and the most incredible experience of being backstage at the Matthew Williamson show before heading to his exclusive afterparty at Whiskey Mist! But first, the outfit...
I needed to wear something a bit more 'blendy in' on Sunday as I knew I would be working backstage with Benefit later in the day so I opted for my new pleather skort from Zara accompanied by a cute checked crop sweater. You can't go wrong with the traditional black & black combo right? The skort was actually a recent present from marvelous Mother Gunn and I'm soooo in love with it! I've wanted the original Zara skort since it sold out last year but I actually prefer this one as the pleather gives it a bit of an edge, whilst the classy length and fit makes it decent enough for work. The jumper was a last minute panic outfit addition courtesy of the lovely Rosie who had bought it the day before- it's hard doing Fashion Week from a small suitcase- and I'm going to struggle to return it to her now as it's super classic and cosy. I then thought I'd enhance it's monochrome element with an adorable white satchel and add a pop of colour with my go to red lip in the form of No.7 'Gay Geranium', which paired with some heeled cut out boots made me feel rather chic, even amoungst all the fashionistas backstage.
Actually going backstage was such an incredible experience- I spent my time covering social media for Benefit as they were doing the make up look, whilst just trying to take in the general craziness of getting an insane amount of models ready for the catwalk. And not only did I meet all the gorgeous models, but also Matthew Williamson himself alongside three of my all time favourite bloggers/vloggers Lily Melrose, Ruth Crilly and Lisa Eldridge! It took all of my will power to remain at least semi professional...well until the VIP afterparty that is when I let my hair down to the max with free cocktails a plenty (Something I did somewhat regret when starting work at 9am the next day). The make up, hair and clothing for the show was absolutely stunning too with glossy chocolate lips, low pony tails and vibrant patterned dresses and jumpsuits- make sure to pour over all the beautiful photos from the show here.
