I booked super bargainous tickets for London which was amazing but the catch was that it was super early. So on very little sleep from the night before, I hopped on my train and began my 2hr journey to London.
Lots of pretty frosty countryside as I sped away from the midlands and towards the big smoke.
I finally arrived at my friends flat. She lives a stones throw away from Camden and look who we bumped into on the way. Pete Doherty was looking a little worse for wear, clearly back on the drugs. Such a shame!
I later spotted the much more beautiful looking Olivia Palermo at Somerset house...lots of street style photographers, heels and sunglasses and beautiful models lounging around taking smoking breaks.
I collected my press pass. It all looks rather fancy what with the UK PRESS emblazoned across it...but don't be fooled, it only lets you into the exhibition which is essentially a big press event with lots of clothes/shoes/accessories for you to snap and pick up business cards for.
Later on, I made it to the Freemasons venue where I finally got to meet the lovely Kit from Style Slicker and Shini from Park&Cube. I also got to know Helen from Everything Cherry Chan and we bonded over make up and youtubers. It's so awesome meeting bloggers in real life, especially ones you read on a regular basis!
Aussie got in contact with Miele for me and we were given front row seats for Jasper Garvida which was sponsored by them. I can't believe we were given front row, it was amazing. It might never happen again so I definitely didn't take it for granted. I hadn't really given too much thought about Garvida before, he was on Project Catwalk (UK version of Project Runway) and won but has always been off the radar, but I was quite impressed by his newest collection. I really loved the twenties theme, art deco prints and the make up.
The shoes were lovely. I also got to see first hand the pain that models go through. There were clearly models wearing humungus shoes but also this model below who was wearing shoes about 3 sizes too small and her toes are noticeably sticking out. Ouch. I understood her pain today since I had to replace my boots in the day with some emergency flats from Topshop. The TS Strand branch is raking it in on the shoe front as the sales assistant said everyone had been in to buy flats and changing into them there and then! Must take a photo of them tomorrow because they are cute! So yeah, below we have major toe issues.
I loved this dress. It looked like a comfy blanket...in a good way! Maybe I had been standing in the cold too long but I really wanted to wrap up in the skirt of this dress...mmm comfy.
So there goes my very brief run down of what I got up to today. Plenty more to come!
