Yesterday saw dizzying amounts of label-clad fashion enthusiasts descend upon the hallowed cobbles of Somerset House to welcome in London Fashion Week SS13. I made my merry way over to attend a handful of shows and spend the evening in the Glam Media suite, and enjoyed a very inspiring and promising start to the season. There's something about this odd week in September that makes everyone in the vicinity start dressing a little more... out there(?) than usual, so I stayed true to my roots in this little ensemble.

The dress is a beautiful piece that I fell in love with at Topshop Boutique after a traumatising 'I have nothing to wear' induced splurge earlier this week. I'm completely in love with the part-petrol, part-navy blue hue and those amazing gunmetal chrome zips that run up on the bodice, complete with two pockets that add a great tailored/structured finish. Kept accessories simple so my zippy neckline could hold its forte, and simply threw on some ribbed socks (scrunched down) and my ASOS Aggie boots that are yet to fail me.

For our first day of the season, Elodie and I mostly loitered on the cobbles, stopped for a Sicilian Lemonade break, and discussed the importance of good burger choice. As you do. Queuing for shows is surprisingly hunger-inducing! I particularly enjoyed Bora Aksu and Zoe Jordan today, so I'll be putting my coverage for those collections together tomorrow when I get a moment. Think femininity, regal and draped silhouettes. So far, so good, London.

  1. That dress is so gorgeous Mish! I'm glad you bought that one in the end. It looks so much more expensive than it probably is too!

  4. Such a lush dress, it kind of reminds me of Miu Miu awhile back (but with the pockets). It's perfect to suit your style. LFW sounds amazing can't wait to see the coverage! XX
