Three days have passed and I am still trying to recover from what LFWeekend had offered me. Some say it is a prestigious occasion so as a first timer attending these sort of events, I did not know what to expect. Of course I was well informed how intimidating fashion can be, I did not need LFWeekend to prove me that. Even though I engaged my Saturday with a maximum of half an hour sleep, I managed to appear jubilant… or so I thought.
In all honesty though, that day could not have started any better than bloggers, photographers and magazine press asking for a photo of me. When you receive positive comments from those who share the same passion as you, it can lift your esteem. Thus, I was super super super duper fortunate to have experienced it, especially with my sister and was astounded by how well the event went overall. It was less nerve-racking and I encountered so many beautiful and unique individuals.
Anyway, there is an ongoing habit I acquired through the years where I provide a theme for my outfit choice. I intended to go for an 80’s look, inspired by none other than Miss Bradshaw (minus the infamous mane). My choice of ensemble consisted of similar shades where it was a play up pastel top-to-toe.
A mix-and-match separates; the mint midi skirt with floral embellishment, giving a classic A-line shape, was paired with a floral blazer. Since UK’s weather is too unpredictable, I wore a white oversized coat all through the event. The only jewellery I had on was this beautiful luminous pink necklace by Heartbead. The simplicity of the necklace was perfect for me. I balanced everything with a metallic clear bag. Does this not remind anyone of the 90’s Versace Supers’ metallic pastel vibe?
