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!

Where’s the fanfare at? Not only are our comments finally fixed but it’s the first Accessories to Murder of 2014! It’s already February, so let’s not hang around nattering about broken New Years resolutions and Justin Bieber’s mugshot. I give you the accessories that have made it onto She and Hem’s Most Wanted.

There is neigh better way to celebrate Chinese New Year, Year of the Horse, than with this Tatty Devine novelty necklace. So don’t horse around, make it a stable part of your outfit as it won’t be around furlong! Thank you for bringing this into my life Tatty!

TURNLOCK SATCHEL, £28.00, Topshop.

Yes, I know I feature a satchel in pretty much every A2M. But Hemsters, I am not sorry! They really do go with everything and Topshop just keep on giving. They have a whopping 18 smashing satchels on sale at the moment and I can honestly say I love them all, with this soft mint dream being the cream of the crop.
