The lead up to LFW was quite stressful as I knew I would be interviewing designers after the Fashion International showcase. This of course made me panic as I was about to be facing two very inspirational experts in the industry! Last September I opted for a dress as this is a piece I am very used to. I did not want to show off any skin so paired it with black tights, heeled boots and my trusty Warehouse coat. Although I loved my outfit, I felt I did not stand out enough. This year I felt a little more risque...
Whilst out shopping with my fellow blogger besties, at a store called "Select", I came across a stunning mint pastel laced pencil skirt. I could not leave that beaut hanging there, I had to have it! On the hunt for the perfect top to go along with my sexy new skirt, I met with struggle and fell defeated!
The weekend drew closer and I still had not completed my outfit. I knew that I wanted to pair my skirt with my go-to nude block heeled shoes but still had not completed the top half of my outfit... I was in a panic! It then hit me that I do own a lot of clothing (duh!) so decided to "shop" my own collection. I soon found the answer! A nude/tan tank top from Primark (bargain) and my favourite cream collarless blazer from New Look. Who said shopping for Fashion Week would cost an arm and a leg?
To finish off my outfit I added a pair of stunning drop earrings, which were given to me by my husbands family (purchased in Sri Lanka) as well as my Claires mint pastel gem bracelet which went perfectly with the skirt.
For my makeup, I wanted a neutral bronzed look. As always, I reached from my favourite Chanel Sequoia eye-shadow quad, deepening the outer corners using Satin Taupe by MAC. Unfortunately this did not pick up so well in my pictures so you will just have to imagine there actually was some colour on my lids ; ) I then applied a little GOSH liner to my waterline, blending this out with Satin Taupe adding lots of YSL Shocking mascara on top of the DiorShow maximizer for fuller lashes. For foundation, I went for my all time favourite Revlon Colorstay in Natural Tan, finishing off the look with my No7 blush brick which is a mix of pinks, roses and tans which was a one off Xmas special D=
