Last week I got very lucky. My sweet friend Meg sent me a pair of tickets to the final London Fashion Weekend catwalk show on Sunday and it was such a thrill! The stunning Somerset House created a picturesque backdrop for the event on what turned out to be a mild and pretty day. From the tents and cafes to the sample sales and freebies, my date Kinzie and I had so much fun wandering around and taking it all in. In case you're not familiar, as soon as London Fashion Week is over, Somerset House is transformed into a unique four-day designer shopping emporium complete with catwalk shows from British brands and emerging designers, beauty tips from brands like Elizabeth Arden and Essie, Chambord champagne bars and bistros from top London restaurants.
Now I'm not the most fashion forward girl, but I do love looking at pretty clothes and figuring out how to incorporate the latest trends into my wardrobe, if only in little ways. Pastels were huge during the shows from Primrose, Antipodium and Jasper Conran, along with peter pan collars. I'll be on the prowl for both trends this spring. Thanks again, Meg! x
