Day 1 London Fashion Week: Floral Print Dress and Rock Chic Attitude

  Wow! I was so happy about the fashion event invite and I really couldn’t wait to go! After taking a moment to think about what had just happened, I closed my email and went to make a cup of coffee. It wasn’t until my boyfriend asked me “so, what are you going to wear”, that the true horror of the situation fully struck me.

WHAT TO WEAR TO FASHION WEEK!? 😥

 I was going to be in a room full of some of London’s most fashionable people, who all loved clothes, had probably or were probably studying fashion in some of the top places in the world. Some of the girls would be models, others bloggers or even designers themselves. Choosing my outfit for this first show was going to be a hard one…

I wanted to fit right in whilst also making a statement. To do this should I go all out and wear a super glamorous outfit? Or would that seem too desperate and a bit of an overkill?  Perhaps less is more and instead I should go for a more casual look – after all I couldn’t think of anything worse than trying to strike a pose on the red carpet whilst teetering awkwardly on high heels. Although it was true that Hollywood glamor and wedding attire just wouldn’t do for this one, could I really wear flats to an industry party where height and giraffe legs are cherished above all else?

With all of these questions in my mind, I decided that my first outfit to go with a very feminine, floral print dress. However, to give this outfit an edge, I would ditch the heels and wear my trusted metal point slip ons instead. These would be a great contrast with the short but voluptuous multi-layered girlie dress and would create a very chic and original look. The leather jacket and gold fish tail necklace really brought out the alternative side of the dress. Let me know what you think of my first outfit choice for fashion week! 😉 And what would you have worn?

    I love this outfit all the way. Its simple yet edgy, girlie with a classy touch. I too would consider such outfit to such a high end fashion forward event. We can only stand out if we balance our personal style and impression.

    1. Thank you ❤ It is a Nikon D5100. It has the quality of a professional camera, but it still has automatic modes which mean that it is very easy to use! I think the only difference is that the really D700s are made out of metal and not plastic (as mine is)… I really do like it and it is great for picking up night scenes and city lights, which I found blurred with other cameras. I bought it because I saw some of my friend took some pictures of her trip to Japan and they were just stunning. She used a Nikon so I figured that they must be good as brand 🙂 Abi xxx
