Seventies Starlet

Day one of LFW, I was determined to look stylish, but as I legged it across London in my vintage blue velvet platforms, channeling my inner seventies style icon Jacqeline Bisset, I remembered just how challenging it is to contend with the famous cobbles of Somerset House.

At the end of a busy first day attending shows including the Merit Award AW15, Paul Costelloe at the stunning Wardorf Hotel, and Ashley Isham (posts to follow soon!), I mentally shoved my beloved heels to the back of my wardrobe and hobbled to Shuh on Neal street to pick up a pair of Nike Internationalist trainers I’d had my eye on. Though I’m not usually one for ‘comfortable’ footwear, I needed something that would allow me to sprint from venue to venue, and I’m sorry to say heels just don’t allow that flexibility!

This season I am really excited about the seventies trend and so this was my inspiration when planning my LFW outfits. As much as I wanted to dress for S/S, the English weather wasn’t cutting it, so I teamed my Spring pastel duck egg blue skirt with pocket detail, front zip,and frayed edging from Topshop with a trusty black ribbed turtleneck from Miss Selfridge and some black suede platforms. I also wore this look with my brand spanking new Nike Internationalists for running from show to show, and let me tell you- they were the best investment yet!

Seventies Starlet

GEOMETRY

A trend we are all to familiar with this season is GEOMETRY!

This Summer I’ve been more about clashing prints, but I just cant wait to put my S/S pieces to the back of my wardrobe and make room for A/W!!

After posting my ‘Ece Gozen’ blog for Fashion Strikes a few weeks back, I was inspired to roam the high street for all things geometric!!

I’ve been hunting for some bold earrings in keeping with this trend for a while but hadn’t found exactly what I was looking for until last weekend when I popped into Primark to replace some laddered tights! At a bargain price of £2.50 I just couldn’t resist…
