We started off Day 2 of LFW with a trip to the Orla Kiely showcase (which we have written a post about here!). After that, we had some time to kill between shows, so we decided to go and check out the ever fabulous Somerset House. Pretty standard London Fashion Week activities I’m sure you will agree. What we are not so accustomed to is how we traveled there… in a stretch hummer! The lovely Kristabel from I Want You To Know captured this in her awesome Fashion Week Vlog. Be warned, the vlog does feature me (Victoria) getting a little over excited and doing what the kids are now calling #hummerdance.

I wore the Square Print Pleat Skirt Dress from The Whitepepper with probably the most worn item in my wardrobe ever, my yellow Ingrid Coat from Boden* (now in the sale!). I accessorised with fun spotty tights from UK Tights*, white ASOS Strike Heels and a yellow Westminster bag from Boden*. Jo wore a gorgeous Needle and Thread tulle skirt from ASOS, with a vintage blue jacket from Heartfelt Vintage and floral Emilie top from Boden*. Her Alice Heels are also from Boden and that glorious pink bag is Kate Spade.

Our jazzy outfits proved to be quite the hit on the cobbles, and we ended up popping up all over the place. Some of our favourite features we saw over the weekend were Yahoo’s best street style, ASOS Fashion Finder, STYLELDN and Boden Diaries. We had such a blast that we often struggled to pull our best ‘we are very serious about fashion’ faces.

We had quite a busy schedule that afternoon, but our favourite show was the couture collection from Hellavagirl. The show was a kaleidoscopic dream! Vibrant, dramatic and seriously sparkly. Just look at those incredible giant sequin bow headbands!

Having been up since 7am and in need of a pick me up, we made use of our central location and decided to head back to base for a quick G&T and get changed into our chirpy Poppy frocks before heading out to our evening shows. Lady Gaga would be proud! I wore the Iris Navy Budgie Dress and Jo wore the Mable White Budgie Dress. Keep your eyes peeled and your beaks sharpened for a new Poppy post next week.

During London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2015, we spent three incredibly fun days attending shows, randomly bumping into blogger buddies and drinking several palm trees worth of Vita Coco. With British fashion stronger than ever, we were so happy to be in the capital for one of our favourite events of the year. Second only to pancake day, obviously.

On day one, with a strong coffee in hand, we headed over to Somerset House super early ready for the first show of the season, J.JS Lee. After the show, and before bumping into the lovely Joseph and Kristabel, we took a few outfit photos in the midst of all the fashionable fun. We were very kindly loaned a few beautiful items from the glorious Heartfelt Vintage in Bristol. I (Victoria) wore an original 1970’s black velvet skirt with a colorful jacket by House of Frou Frou, both from Heartfelt Vintage. My white shirt is from Marks & Spencer, the yellow square shoulder bag is vintage and my new favourite Dilly heels are Orla Kiely for Clarks. Jo’s floral 1950’s dress and vintage cloche also came from Heartfelt vintage, which she teamed with a black leather jacket from Marks & Spencer, a yellow Westminster bag from Boden and black round heel ankle boots from The Whitepepper.

London Fashion Week AW14: Orla Kiely Street Style

LFW5

Last month we received possibly the most exciting email of all time when we were invited by Orla Kiely to take part in a street style initiative with them for London Fashion Week. After much squealing, high-fiving and just the tiniest flicker of unbearable smugness (sorry friends and family) we began to  plan, panic and pack. You see, we hadn’t even attended London Fashion Week before so to be going with our favourite designer was just beyond a ridiculous privilege.

We will be posting a series of special London Fashion Week posts, featuring the shows we attended (including the beautiful Orla Kiely show) and what we wore, over the next week but first we wanted to talk about our street style experience. And what an experience it was!
