Working out what to wear at London Fashion Week wasn’t my major priority in the run up, as I was back to back with meetings and sick. And, given that I spent most of London Fashion Week with a flushed face from a Rosacea episode, a matching pink snotty nose, and a furrowed brow from the fashion flu I was battling, I wasn’t what I would call mad keen to have my photograph taken. (And, honestly, no one needs any more pouty street style photos clogging up the internets.) So instead, I thought I’d take some still lives of my accessories for each day instead.
This is actually Tuesday/Day Five, when I had had enough of heels and decided to break out my brand new Charlotte Olympia velvet slipper flats, a lovely gift from the designer.
As to the rest of the outfit: I wore my beautiful tailored Tibi black tux with leather lapels, lined in black lace, with Goldsign skinny blue jeans, cropped at the ankle, and a black silk crepe, scoop neck, long-sleeve COS T shirt. All that black needed lifting as much as my mood, so I added a (borrowed) Stella & Dot Pegasus Necklace, and carried a bronze See by Chloe Cherry Evening Bag, lent to me by my friends at MyWardrobe.com – their offices are a block from my front door. Handy.
I do love that the slippers are embroidered with the label’s trademark spiders web (Charlotte’s Web!). I particularly like the little jewelled spider on the left toe.
And here they are on Meadham Kirchoff’s disco dance floor on the runway at their show on Tuesday morning.
