LFW Day 1

Hat: TK Maxx. Coat: Zara. Shirt: Uniqlo. Bag: Sophie Anderson. Leather trousers: Marks & Spencer. Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Now it's not often I pop into TK Maxx for clothes, but I just happen to pass this gem for £12 a little while back and love it. It helps to lift an otherwise plain outfit - just make sure it's not a windy day! Reiss also do great hats, this one is very similar to my frugal find (and probably better quality):

And I know I've featured these M&S leather leggings before, they are so versatile and such a wardrobe staple. They no longer sell them, but have a (sort of) similar pair here. I wear mine with a long-line shirt from Uniqlo to keep them paired back and simple. They work well with flats but equally with a fab pair of pointy courts, as demonstrated by the gorgeous Style on The Couch blog.

This fabulous clutch is by Sophie Anderson, an amazing accessories designer who I have stumbled upon through work - I love the vibrancy of this bag - and it fits my iPad - the dream. Her SS13 collection will soon be stocked at Matches.



My new ring is from Maria Francesca Pepe from Amazon's Jewellery Boutique. I knew Amazon stocked jewellery, but no idea they had edgier brands like Maria Francesca Pepe, whose studded designs are a hit with our Fashion Team:

And as for the rest of London Fashion Week Day 1?

  1. I'm looking for some pointy courts, but with a little (kitten maybe?) heel. Ideally not slingback and black, though something vibrant could work. Any ideas?

    1. What about something like these from New Look...? I really rate their shoes http://tiny.cc/w4dmsw
      Office also do some but alas, they are slingback x

  2. You look perfect! Love the coat and hat. So nice to see a proper hat (how old does THAT make me sound?!?) Rather than a bloody bowler hat!!

    Jealous of your lovely LFW times even after only day one :) xxxx

  3. Thank you so much for the mention! I was hoping we might bump into each other for fashion week but the days get a bit crazy, no? I'd love to meet up for a coffee sometime and talk all things blogging.
