Hello from shiny, sunny London!
I’m just excited to be keeping abreast of the situation at this point. As I get older, I don’t cope so easily with lack of sleep (or nightlife for that matter) and being alert and productive is paramount to my FW success. So Fashion Week is really the time to be driven – of course there’s buckets of fabulousness to go around – but it’s so important to be switched on. It’s like a huge forum for networking and you can be hot one season and forgotten the next. Fashion Week is a huge financial investment and you gotta really dig your heels in to make the best of it, it’s challenging when everyone around you is also doing their best to make a mark.
I happy to do it my own way though, working hard and doing what I love, snapping pics and sharing it with all of you. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of feeling like you need to live up to another person’s standard, to be THAT cool girl wearing the latest and hottest pieces. While I’m lucky to have some pretty amazing fashion at my disposal, I really just want to wear what I love, what makes me feel comfortable – and wearing outfits that are really fun! So I’m doing it!
Hopefully my content will get better for all of this. Promise me you’ll give me a holler if I ever seem out of touch!
And now back to this outfit – I love the easy style of Preen By Thornton Bregazzi dresses, loads of colour, plenty of options with sleeves, flowing and flipping around my knees, sexy details, fun and spirited. I could fill my whole wardrobe with them! A firm favourite.
I snapped loads of my outfits in NYC and I’ve still got them to share, so expect way too many posts coming from me over the coming weeks. Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
