LOOK Online Feature: LFW Special 2015

Carelle - LFW, LOOK

LOOK magazine approached me a little while back asking if I'd like to be involved in a feature for their "Best LFW Streetstyle Bloggers" article on their website and I don't have to tell you I jumped for joy at the chance. The aim of this was to put together an outfit that we felt was worthy of the FROW (front row at designer shows in case you aren't down with the fashion lingo)! And this is what I came up with (I wish you could have seen the havoc I caused in my bedroom trying to put something together...bombsite doesn't even cover it). 

So of course I was going for another 70s inspired outfit (God you must be getting so bored of all my "70s inspired" nonsense haha). Actually I spotted a picture of Elle Macpherson wearing flared, striped trousers with a black blouse online that I adored (screen shot please!) and as luck would have it, I stumbled across a similar pair in Miss Selfridge. Clearly the fashion gods had pity on me that day!! From there, everything else kinda fell into place....after a couple of hours that is lol! Those trousers are truly heaven though. I can't wait for warmer weather to rock them properly. I have a feeling they might be one of my summer staples. 

Oh and btw, you will never know how cold it was shooting this outfit. My fingers and toes went blue and that's quite an accomplishment as last I checked, I'm brown skinned. I'm genuinely surprised I didn't catch a serious illness...all in the name of fashion right? Thanks to my Twinny for being my photographer and preserving through the weather even though you lost feeling in your fingers haha. I'm freezing just thinking back to that day...brrrr. 

Well this is the last in my Fashion Week series. Kinda sad it's all come to an end but these last few days have most definitely felt a little manic. Now, I'm really looking forward to some down time. I'm literally such a hermit but to be fair I don't even remember what sleep feels like anymore. If I pretend the office lights are giving me a headache and put on my sunglasses do you think anyone would notice if I take a little nap at my desk? Desperate times..... xo
