Leather jacket and spots

Where did the week go! I've been very busy this week juggling assignment deadlines, shopping trips and working in the big city for Vauxhall fashion scout. So I can't wait to do absolutely nothing but sit watching the Xfactor results show with my boyfriend and a tub of Ben and Jerrys cookie dough tomorrow night!

I went to Manchester last weekend to do some Christmas shopping with my boyfriend and came back with a grand total of zero presents for friends and family and more than enough enough pressies for myself, including a gorgeous berry toned asymmetrical dress which I picked up from Topshop and some sparkly ballerinas. It was my first time visiting the Trafford centre and to be honest I didn't know what all the fuss was about. To me it seemed like any other shopping centre, this was until I set foot in the food halls! China town, Italian side streets and even a ship; I couldn't decide where I actually wanted to eat, it was amazing!

Then Wednesday and Thursday I worked for Vauxhall Fashion Scout for their selection event, where buyers, designers, stylists and editors all came together to help make the decision on who to reward the internationally acclaimed Merit award for London Fashion Week A/W12. It was such an interesting day, hearing what people in such powerful positions in the fashion industry had to say about the designers and believe me it got heated at some points; a very tough decision was made...

I must say having to walk straight past Brick Lane was fairly difficult too... However very much regretting not buying a spotted mesh body! Very Stella McCartney.

Today, I'm currently bidding on an Oasis black leather jacket... staring price 99p and I'm the only bidder, sounds promising. Love the intensity of eBay!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Drapers WGSN Fashion Summit

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of working backstage at this years Drapers WGSN Fashion Summit show which featured some of the recent fashion graduates from all over the UK. Feathers, chains and architectural knits were just some of the intricate details that graced the catwalk, and what an eclectic mix of designs there were! I absolutely loved it.

Oh and the toilets wern't half bad either in the beautiful One Whitehall Place... MASSIVE!

Me and some of my fellow dressers!

Asymetrical maxi and studded belt

Just a quick post before I trot off to Saturday job number two (something has to pay for my addiction to clothes!). Basically I LOVE my black asymetrical maxi skirt. What it may lack in bright colour, print or funky texture, makes up in drama , especially with the studded belt! And I certainly felt like a drama queen for this night. As much as I'd love to wear this during the day with a pair of roughed up boots and chunky cable knit cardi, unfortunately I'm not blessed with legs up to my armpits and so this baby will have to retire to my 'night out' wardrobe. But for all you lucky beauties over 5"5, I envy you.

P.S -- Check out my Leapord print wedges, cheeky bargain from soyoushoes!

Happy Bonfire night ladies!
