VIP at London Fashion Week

   My belated post about this September's London Fashion Week. I am sincerely sorry for this. But you know what they say - better late than never? Good things come to those who wait? Both very true statements. So here are a few of the many photos I took while at the first day of London Fashion Week SS13, while visiting the Caroline Charles with VIP tickets & free champagne (at 10am!!) in the Vodafone VIP lounge. Not a bad start to the day - im not going to lie. The show itself was practically the definition of a summer romance - with tropical colours, carefree prints and luxurious draping. Anyway enjoy!
Question my judgement as much as you like - but I LOVE this combo of polka-dot socks & wedges - so cute & so vintage when combined with the knee-length trousers & cute cardigan.
I did warn you about the beautiful draping qualities of her designs this season didn't I? Well here is a prime example, with these luxurious black trousers (bellow).
No question about it, my favourite piece from the show, and quite rightly the ending show-stopper. The volumous weight in the skirt and slightly padded out shoulders teamed with a wide-brimmed hat makes the waist look tiny, creating the perfect hourglass. And in such a innocent white - this piece just defines the promise of summer romance under the white hot sun.
The BEAUTIFUL Somerset House - if you get a chance while in London I really do encourage you to go & take a look at it yourself - such incredible architecture. And of course the gold pencil skirt in the foreground also caught my attention - anything that sparkles grabs my attention!
