You're in a strange part of our town.

I must confess, I couldn’t really bring myself to care about London Fashion Week this season. It’s the same part of me that doesn’t feel very comfortable labelling myself as a ‘fashion blogger’ – I like clothes, but I’m not very adventurous. And being surrounded by slim, tall, stylish women is enough to make anyone feel a bit inadequate. So I just kind of ignored it – I didn’t apply for a pass, I didn’t ask for any invites, I didn’t block the weekend out in my diary – I just sat back and let it happen.

Living a 20 minute train ride from central London is a useful thing for a blogger to have, though, meaning that I can get into the Capital quickly for an event, or if I change my mind – and when Hayley and scores of other bloggers started making plans to meet up, my mind got changed. So I met them at Somerset House, where we stayed long enough to be clich├ęs and take outfit photos…

…and then we headed off for wine and cocktails and burgers and more wine and then some more wine.

Christina, Amy, some weirdo, Hayley, Hannah, Michelle!

I assumed, rightly, that I wouldn’t run into anyone wearing this dress. That’s because it cost £11.99 from a random cheap shop near my work. The brand is ProdigyRed though, and they actually sell online – so I should stop being so derogatory about them and calling them a random cheapy make as I actually really like a lot of stuff on there! Plus, I bought two of my favourite dresses of the moment there, so.

I went in on Saturday too, but the weather was miserable and I failed to even get my camera out of my bag. Which means I didn’t document the best beehive I have ever achieved in my hair (turns out the key is not brushing it properly) and another new dress. Ah well. It’s only Fashion Week, after all.

Dress – ProdigyRed
Tights – Tesco

Bag - New Look
Belt & Shoes – Primark
Coat – H&M
Necklace - GoGo Philip
Brooch & Rings - Topshop
