Happy Valentines day and Happy first day of London Fashion Week!
Once again I will be teaming up with TK Maxx to report on all the gossip from LFW. This season Law from That’s So Yesterday blog will be reporting with me so you can get double the action! You can follow us for live updates on Twitter @PearlWestwood @Law1sFab @TKMaxx_UK @FBloggersUK and join in the fun with our unique hash tag #StyleItBeIt which we think sums up the perfect style ethos, style it how you want and wear it how you want! I will only be doing the weekend of LFW this time so lets cram a whole lot in!
Close up with Christopher Raeburn
What could you desire most in this utterly vile, stormy weather? Why a Christopher Raeburn poncho of course! Sadly I did not happen to have such a glorious poncho to hand and spent the first day of London Fashion Week AW14 getting wet and wind swept. Mr Raeburn however had the right idea sending models out fit to tackle the hardiest of climates in Arctic prints, faux fur and polar patten woolly jumpers, who ever said fashion couldn’t be both practical and fabulous?
This season I have chosen to highlight designers who practice sustainability as it is a subject I have been working closely with in the past month. More about that after LFW but do have a read of the About page of Christopher Raeburn and his RE-Made ethos.
On the Street
The rain poured but there was plenty of sunshine in the outfits of show-goers, not even the bad weather can stop a look that needs to be rocked. Eye catching pastels and pretty sorbet colours to brighten up any day. Striking head-wear was spotted too, those bunny ears showing no signs of going of favour and Piers Atkinson‘s fluffy puppy put a smile on everyone’s face.
What on earth am I wearing? I’ve really no idea, I give up. I can’t tell you if wearing trainers is now cool or if everyone just got so fed up with the weather than switching into heels has become too much effort. I confess it’s a case of the latter for me, see that huge bag? Yes I had heels in there, nope I had zero desire to put them on whilst battling gale force winds. Do I like the trainers? Yes, With this outfit? I’m undecided! What I do love is this rainbow umbrella keeping me dry and fighting off the rain clouds. I am also wearing this fabulous printed scarf, it has a shoe print! I must do a close up. The suit and coat are Vivienne Westwood as you have seen before and the scarf and bags are from TK Maxx, yes I have two bags, no that wasn’t necessary, but aren’t they fabulous! Luckily I Instagramed a selfie before stepping out in the rain before I got drenched and my new hair do still looked sleek. Apparently we might get snow tomorrow, fashion I give up!
