I’d been looking forward to this particular Saturday for weeks. Why this Saturday? Because this was the day that I had booked my ticket for London Fashion Weekend! I woke up earlier than usual to pick out an outfit and ensure that I was properly groomed for the day (oh so important!)
After trying on every item of clothing that I brought with me, I finally decided on an outfit. (If you must know it was similar to the picture below…but the shirt was tucked in with a belt…much more chic. Plus ballet flats– Somerset House is very big. Finished the look with a dark gray Bayswater. I would take a picture of the bag, but I’m too lazy.
When I got there things were already very busy and a tad overwhelming. I’ve never been the most patient person and hate shopping with millions of other people around. I realized that this was perhaps not the best place for me to be…
There were so many designers and unbelievable deals, but I really hadn’t come prepared for power shopping. Of course there were a couple of purchases that I just couldn’t resist:
A perfectly royal blue cashmere scarf. So soft. So pretty.
Paperself Paper Eyelashes (this style is called Peonies)
A subscription to Elle Magazine (now that I have a permanent address, Huzzah!) And all on sale. Oh happy day!
Of course there was more to do than just shop…
You could treat yourself to a nice spa treatment at the Weekend Retreat
There was also a fashion show. It was FW ’11 collections, but in the same place where LFW had just taken place…which made it cool.
I had some issues with my camera and lighting and such (what…I never said I was a professional photographer, and I never will…because clearly I’m not.
And last but not least of course was the lovely gift bag I got at the end of the day. It came filled with lots of goodies! Some highlights:
My very own Karl Coca Cola!
Kiss Ever EZ False Eyelashes (there’s a string on them to make them easier to apply…I have not tested them yet. I’ll let you know how it goes when I do.
Some snazzy new earbuds. They’re still in the box; I don’t think any amount of colour or bedazzling will ever take the place of my beloved Bose ear buds.
