Vodafone London Fashion Weekend

On Saturday I headed down to London town on another fashion adventure with Tara from The Style Rawr. This time we were on a mission to Somerset House to check out Vodafone London Fashion Weekend.

Not long after we arrived it started to drizzle so we took cover inside and began to make our way through the maze of rooms housing lots and lots of brands. Some of the rooms were pretty hectic and it was a bit of a squeeze to get round but there were definitely some bargains to be found if you could stand it!

Before we knew it it was time to get in line for the Catwalk Show and we soon found ourselves inside the show tent waiting for the show to start. Here are a few phones snaps...

The show focused on four key trends for Autumn Winter: Pretty in Pink, Back to Nature, Shape Up and Victoriana. My favourite of all the trends on show was definitely Victoriana, I'm feeling a little gothic romance this weekend.

Jacket: Zara, Camisole: New Look, Maxi Skirt: New Look, Bag: WAY

I wanted to be comfy for the journey to and from London so decided to wear this floral maxi skirt, which I picked up from New Look a couple of weeks ago and to make sure I didn't catch a cold I wore my trusty Zara jacket to keep me warm!

Did you check out London Fashion Weekend?

French Connection: From Sketch to Store #StyleChallenge

On Wednesday night I attended a Sketch to Store Style Challenge event at my local French Connection in Cabot Circus with my darling Tara from The Style Rawr. The store was holding a style challenge and encouraged us to pick an outfit that wasn't our usual style. I set about scouring the rails and was instantly drawn to these print trousers. I've wanted a pair of print trousers for a while but was a little cautious about whether or not I could pull them off. I needn't have worried because I absolutely loved them! I finished my outfit with a simple cobalt blue vest and black shirt.

Tara picked out this really cool dress and jacket, which she rocked obviously! I loved my outfit so much (and as the store were offering 20% off) I decided to treat myself and bought the trousers and the vest!

The staff were really chatty and helpful and we were each given a goodie bag, which among other lovely things contained some yummy Lindt choocies that didn't last very long!

It was a really fun night and I can't wait to wear my new purchases!
