LFW Day 2 Outfit and being glad the initial outfit didn't work

Hey everyone

Day 2 at London fashion week was much more in control as i had figured out my way around brewer street car park where the fashion week is being held. Its right in the heart of Soho and the convenient tube stations are Piccadilly circus and Tottenham court road. If you know Soho you would know its the heart of the city and there are hundreds of eating and chilling places around so theres lots to do as it is. The weather was supposed to be better than day 1, thankfully no rain so i decided to wear my tulle skirt. Wanted to pair my girly skirt with a bit edgier pieces but still keep the look a lot feminine so had Initially planned to wear it with a lace velvet cami top with a military jacket that i had  listed in the items i would wear at the fashion week post, so many of you loved it but sadly the fit of the jacket was completely off, it was a size 8 but so big that it could fit one more person so in case you are thinking of getting it remember that its very huge, luckily i had this boyfriend shirt from H&M that i was  happy with but not really sure if it would work well with the skirt as it was quite loose and the skirt was fluffy as it is. On the night before i was going through pictures of the bloglovin h&m awards and saw Leandra Madine wear the same shirt so that gave me more confidence and when i wore the outfit all the disheartenment  at the jacket not working was replaced by the sense of completely owning the look.

What i wore- Shirt H&M sold out similar, Skirt- Boohoo, Bag- Dune sold out similar, Belt- Asos, Shoes- Topshop, Earrings- H&M sold out similar

Loved the look of a boyfriend shirt tucked into a tulle skirt with super fancy leopard print slingbacks in red. I also feel the western belt was a great addition, added a lot of edginess. Read about accentuating ur figure with belts here

This is probably going to be my fav look from the fashion week, very effortless, a lot of diff elements, and super chic. I got a lot of compliments for it and many people asked for pictures so was very glad the initial look i had planned didn't work, lesson learned- sometimes when things don't work out they are actually working in your favor.

Thank you for stopping by! See u in my next one.

London fashion week Day 1 outfit + Teatum Jones and Paul Costelloe SS17

Hey everyone! Day 1 at London fashion week in one word was a whirlwind. The sun god finally decided to take a break and let the rain and cold have a time but i so wish it was some other day. Hair, outfit, commuting everything becomes more stressful but I am happy it feels like autumn and thats London, anyways!!! 

I was wearing quite a few trends on the first day, trends i love and wanted to wear and fashion week was just the right time to rock them. But i always try to make the outfits as effortless as possible and get the chic street style vibe going. From all the pieces in the look i am obsessed with the black embroidered denim and the fur slides. You are definitely seeing me wear them multiple times. 

I am a huge fan of mixing textures and for day 1 i went for it full throttle. velvet jacket, suede top, denim bottom, suede bag and fur shoes. Quite a mix plus the colors but i think the black brought the whole look together. So my advice for when you are wearing a lot of trendy things and mixing a lot of stuff choose a strong black element to make the look chic.

What i wore- Jacket- pretty little things, pants- pretty little things, top- miss pap, shoes- topshop, bag- mango, ring- mejuri, earrings- river island

Pink and khaki is definitely one of my fav color combos. Specially this time of the year.

 I was happy i had jeans and jacket on me as it had become quite cold. 

What i wore- Jacket- pretty little things, pants- pretty little things, top- miss pap, shoes- topshop, bag- mango, ring- mejuri, earrings- river island

On day 1 ruffles dominated the runway and i am glad they did. Wide legs were strong and so were the sleeves and shoulders. As for colors i saw a lot of white and shades of blue and some yellow. 

Teatum Jones opened the LFW with a bang. It was my first show and what a start. Loved the pairing of crisp shirts with puffed cropped pants, silky fabrics, lace and the pairing of bold colors with soft. There were many rich hues as well and i feel its quite appropriate to wear even now. And can we take a moment to admire the boots a true show stopper. 
They introduced their mens collection as well and focussed on human diversity.

Completely awe struck by the Paul Costelloe, one of the most established names in British fashion history,  show in dreamy Le Meridian. My fav show on day one and what a collection, this dress below is the epitome of fancy to me, the ruffles and the hi lo design are just beyond gorgeous. I also loved the colors pastels, muted tones in rich fabrics and shades of blue.  The outfits were full of feminine details and lot of textures and mixed fabrics.

Those were the two shows i attended. I also went to couple of presentations and would cover them in a separate post so this one does not become humungous, i think it already is but its the fashion week after all!!!!!

Thank you for stopping by! See you in my next one.

London fashion week beauty and other essentials

Hey everyone! For something as hectic as the fashion week, i much prefer to go the tried and tested path as far as makeup goes. The outfit anyways takes centre stage and with makeup i really want to stick to my favorites that i know will work and bear the unpredictable weather that London has been experiencing off late.

Skin prep and nails- Whether the sun is out or no i always make sure to put sunscreen  first and this one from La Roche Posay is non greasy and does not leave a white cast so its great when you have to put makeup on. Then i use my fav cream of all time for makeup Lait creme concentrate from Embryoliss. This cream is like  magic, it really plumps up the skin and makes the foundation and concealer look flawless. 
I use the primer water from smash box to soften my real technique beauty blender a bit and this step does  makes the foundation and concealer look very natural and insync with the skin.

Face- I don't usually wear foundation, even when i am shooting. Concealer pretty much does for me but when i do my fav combo is the maybelline fit me mixed with a drop of revlon skin lights in bare, this gives me the most natural looking glowey skin and i am all about that. As for concealers my fav ones are the mac pro concealer and nars creamy soft all mattified by bourjois healthy mix powder and then some blush on the cheeks which 9/10 times is rose from dior, a dusty rose shade,

 Lips- I am a total slave to liquid matte lipsticks and my fav ones right now are the nyx matte lip creams in the shade London and Berlin, kat von d liquid lipsticks  and the too faced melted strawberry. The only one that i am at all wearing right now that is a normal one is So Chaud by MAC. 

Eyes- When i am in rush i skip eyeliner and just do my brows and put mascara. This time i have thought of wearing false lashes from Huda beauty but we will see how that comes through, will definitely tell u.

Other- The most important thing which is not in this picture is a portable charger that will always be in my bag as theres so much to update, make instastories ( i am taking u around london with me during fashion week so do check it), check schedule and stuff so running out of battery will be a nightmare. The second most important thing is Moroccan oil, after coloring its almost impossible to comb without applying a few drops of this oil to my hair.
The classic Sheffield from Daniel Wellington is always on my hand.
 Umbrella is a must because it can rain anytime, its London, mine is a compact one that can easily fit in and since it might get very hectic i will keep banana with me so i could snack incase theres no time to eat.

So that pretty much are the essentials, Thank you for stopping by! See you tomorrow.
