LFW14 | Day Two

Primark Jumper / New Look Skirt / Mango Coat / h&m Flatforms / M&S Tights / Michael Kors Watch / Ciate Ferris Wheel / Rimmel Apocalips in 'Stellar'

The second day of Fashion Week brought a change from the cutsie smock featured in day one's post to a slightly more sophisticated 50s/60s/even 90s clueless look. Or a more Marlene from Only Fools and Horses look but let's not dwell on that comparison... I got the cute pastel mohair jumper from Primark in my giveaway haul and was determined to bring it out at Somerset House so paired it with a houndstooth tube skirt to create a retro hourglass effect and I really love how the two pieces work together. I then brought out the shearling coat and half hair to complete the 'extra from Made in Dagenham' thing I seemed to have going and again I was super happy to get snapped as I sauntered about! I must also give a shoutout to my h&m flatforms which gave me both height and stability in a sea of ridiculously well dressed people, my current minty blue nail obsession in the form of ciate 'ferris wheel' and the classic Rimmel 'Stellar' Apocalips which provided me with an all day long colour pop. 

In terms of my diary of the day it started with a yummy English breakfast then moved to Somerset House where I saw Proudlock, Jamie and Spencer (cue excessive chelsea style fangirling) afterwhich we boarded a rather fun Shopcade party bus. Me and Becca got to see our first show too, which was Serap Pollard at the fancy Charing Cross Hotel, in fact we even got promoted to the Frow!! It was a great moment and was proceeded by a really great show full of bold colours and patterns and contrasting textures. I pretty much fell in love with the sequinned party dress which will no doubt appear in some highstreet form come Christmas time. I actually headed into Oxford Street after the show for a spot of shopping and food at Topshop with the girls, (I could genuinely spend all day just in that Topshop) and then had dinner and drinks in the evening with another London dwelling best friend before heading back to my hotel to get ready for Sunday...       

Are you mad for mohair?
