Well, sort of. I'm under no allusions - I'm not very modelly, so I didn't really expect to get papped - although I did get my photo taken on the way in, I think by some students, which was flattering! I spent a lot of the day with Susie and Jazmine though, both of whom looked gorgeous - everyone else seemed to agree and they were constantly being approached by photographers. Jazmine even got featured on the Vogue website!
I love the light/dark contrast of their outfits, isn't it cool?
I went for black in the end - simple, reliable, stylish black. I bought this New Look dress about a week ago and really like it - it's super comfortable and I think I'll absolutely live in it. So versatile!
I added some turquoise tights (I know they look blue in the photos, but I swear they were the same colour as my belt!), my favourite shoeboots, layered on some quirky charm necklaces and semi-successfully beehive-ponytailed my hair. Why does no one ever talk about 'beehive burn'? My arms were killing me after all that backcombing! I felt quite nice though - not very 'high fashion' but I didn't feel like I stuck out like a sore thumb as a total fashion n00b!

Also, you know what? I really love this jacket. I wanted a jacket exactly like it, and I found it in Primark last year. But no one ever comments on it. And it's such a nice jacket! (Show of hands for the jacket?)
The lovely Jazmine took some photos for me - it was hilarious, there were four of us all taking outfit photos of each other in a quiet part of Somerset House. I love bloggers. They get it.
After I'd had my fill of fashion, I took a stroll over the River Thames (stopping to take some pics of that awesome view) to meet my friends for a yummy dinner at Polpo. Mmmm. Meatballs.
