All that glitters…

“All that glitters is not gold.” a famous verse by William Shakespeare (the Merchant of Venice) which may sometimes be true, but alas, we still love shiny glittery things.. Shiny cars, shiny jewellery and shiny clothes & shoes. 😉 Which is why … Continue reading

Outfit for British Fashion Awards tonight

I posted a little while back about the nominees for the British Fashion icon for the  British Fashion Awards, not realising that I would be able to attend the award in person!!!

Yes, tonight at the grandiose Savoy Hotel in London, along with all the beautiful models, fashion designers and fashionistas will be me and with my fashion lover friends A and L (a blogger herself).

I got to attend these awards two years ago and queued behind non other than the dashing Christopher Bailey and Daisy Lowe, who luckily stole the attention of the waiting photographers.

So what to wear to such an occasion? This of course has to be an outfit that allows for some mad dashing from work (in west weeeeest London… near Heathrow) to Savoy Hotel in the über glamorous tube. (Funnily the invite actually says “your driver should take you to The Savoy Hotel… one day perhaps).

So this is what I have rolled up in my little bag:

  • Erdem dress;
  • Burberry patent shoes; and
  • Burberry quilted bag.

Dress in above style, but in the fabric of the skirt below.

Boots in the style of below but black shiny patent leather (so nicer):

The bag is similar to the one below, but instead of the two straps it has one thick long strap.

So fingers crossed there will be no problems with the tube tonight, and I’ll be able to be sipping champagne with the best of London fashion!
