Shoes for fashion week.

My friends and I are attending LFW again in a couple of weeks and I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of shoes to take with me. We’re going to be out almost all day so I need something stylish yet comfortable for walking around and standing in queues in. This is why I’ve opted for chunky heels and platforms.

Summery style

The recent rumors of a two week heat wave and general nice weather have started me thinking about a slightly more summery wardrobe update. Here are my top picks from the highstreet.

1. Zip front drop back dress 45, miss selfridge. This one is probably my favourite, I can think of places I could wear this.

2. crown vest 35, illustrated people at Topshop. You can never have enough vests and if the print is good, it’s a bonus!

3. Feather cape necklace 40, Topshop. I like a bit of tribal style for the summer, maybe it’s not quite hot enough for this yet but one can dream! I imagine wearing it to a beach party so I’ll probably have to wait till my holiday.

4. multistrap bra top 18, miss selfridge. Perfect for when it’s too hot for a real bra.

5. Stripe hotpants 35 Moto at Topshop. Practicals and pastel.

6. embroidered hem shorts 18, River island. Comfy and interesting, best summer shorts I’ve seen so far.

7. skull de jouy thoas dress 195, All Saints. Everyone needs an elegantly messy dress in their wardrobe.

8. Polkadot burnout crop 7, miss selfridge. Practical and interesting, at that price who can argue?

9.Lilac crepe midi skirt 34, miss selfridge. I love lilac but seldom find any clothes that I like in that colour so I probably have to have this.

10. Cross tights 8.50, Topshop. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to wear sheet tights in the evening!

11. sequin knicker 12, miss selfridge. I was imagining this being worn with the tights for a night out.

12. 90s shorts 28, motel at Topshop. I’m not sure if I would prefer these to be slightly lower waisted but I love the thick stripes.

13. Inverted cross plug, 10 for UK custom plugs. Very simple but I haven’t seem plugs like this before and they definitely work.

14. Underground triple-sole Wulfrun creepers. Not the most summery shoe but I’ve been looking for some casual platforms for ages and this I’m probably going to have to just give up and get these. I’ve never been a big fan of creepers, to be honest in most cases I find them ugly but these have exactly the right platform and I can probably customise the parts I don’t like :).

Shopping style boards

It has been a while since I last had time for a shopping post. I always save images of products I find interesting but at busy times I have to focus on orders. While I’m disappointed I didn’t get to post about some of my finds, however, I think this is a great time for a clothes post as everyone has updated their ranges for spring.

I have complied 3 boards of my favorite spring styles.

A. Tough girl

1. Bordelle belt strap garters 130+VAT www.bordelle.co.uk I love these but would never be able to afford that much on garters so am considering making a similar pair.

2. sleeveless stripe shirt 30 Topshop

3. leg harness 16.50 Topshop

4. Infragante leather bodice 120+VAT Bordelle

5. mesh panel leggings 22 Miss selfridge

6. skull jouy vest 35 All saints

7. Studded Lita boot, Jefferey Campbell

8. stud detail bralette 20 Topshop

9. leather biker jacket 165 by boutique at topshop. This isn’t the most amazing leather jacket but I’m struggling to find a nice one that will fit me for a reasonable price and at least this one would be easily customisable.

B. Mystical girl

1. bodycon dress 42 miss selfridge (I may have actually bought the last one of these as I had to go to a pretty obscure branch to find it).

2. lattice bra top 18 miss selfridge

3. vero moda lace biker jacket www.usc.co.uk

4. cross front longline cami 22 topshop

5. heelless platform by Jeffery Campbell, I’ve wanted a pair of these for so long!

8. obsidian tomb ring $260 blood milk

9. sheer split maxi skirt 37 miss selfridge

10. reformed coquette tie die dress 30 urban outfitters

I have bought a few of these things and hope to have a bit more spare cash soon. Having to spend all my money on my business gets depressing some times but with a new casual range coming out soon I have high hopes for the future.
