A bolt of blue

Another Saturday night getting dressed up to go out, well to a friends very belated housewarming party! A small house suddenly became full of family and friends for an evening of questionable cocktails and even more questionable dancing!

I frantically washed all my clothes when I got back so that I could wear them but in the end decided on a different outfit:

Headband: New Look

Jacket: Yours

Dress: New Look

Bangles: Accessorize & Primark

Leggings: Yours

Shoes: Next

That's all folks!

Just about recovered from LFW, been catching up on sleep and resting my swollen feet! It was the hardest I have ever worked and the longest time spent on my feet, being polite and helpful. The shows were amazing and it was such a spectacle to see every fashionista decked out in their trendiest outfits.

Instead of posting the backlog of outfit posts and general pics I have uploaded the lot to Facebook where you can peruse at your leisure: here

LFW Update

Hey folks, am in the midst of LFW and working ridiculous hours and am going to bed at like 9pm so have been too tired to post. Am currently charging camera and phone for tomorrow so will start posting as soon as I can.

Suffice to say this has been a steep learning curve and it isn't called WORK experience for nothing! Today I saw my first fashion show so that made up for it and hopes for some more during the week! Also had my photo taken with Susie Bubble (blogger extraordinaire) and saw some celebs including Olivia Palermo, Hilary Alexander, Brix Smith Start, Steven Jones, Janice Dickenson and Jamila from T4 so not bad so far!

You can follow me on twitter as VintageGirl87 as I am updating that and will do facebook too at some point.

Training day 2

It was "technical training" today which came down to how to print badges and scan passes so not exactly rocket science. There was more exercise as we went on another tour of the venue and then to top it off we manned goodie bag central and added to the pile.

More jegging wear today and more spots:

Necklace: Primark

Shirt: Primark

Belt: New Look

"Oh Gnomeo, Gnomeo!"

A day between training spent at the cinema watching gnomes fall in love and rabbits doing semaphore with their ears! Such a good film with an interesting take on the classic star-crossed lovers.

I gave a lot of thought to my working wardrobe but not much to the off duty days so there is mostly layering and jegging love. Also managed to wear my sunglasses for probably the only day on this trip:

Sunglasses: ASOS

Cardigan: Dorothy Perkins

Shirt and tee: New Look

Jeggings: Evans

Training day 1

Met the other LFW volunteers today who seem a nice, friendly bunch which is a relief! Everyone was fashionably turned out and really excited. Excitement which increased further once we were given our staff badges and goodie bags! Very coveted things so we felt privileged:

Just dance 2!

Feeling a little worse for wear today after a night of cocktails and lots of dancing! Went to my friends house and attempted to "just dance" on the Wii with mixed results as the routines are really hard and it was the most exercise I have done in ages!

I have been getting my wardrobe together for LFW and the clothes are piling up! I was expecting a uniform and instead have a scarf so I have been modelling an entire 10 days worth of outfits and trying not to take too much stuff (easier said than done for me, the kitchen sink girl). I have bought some new items and hopefully I will be able to take daily pics to be updated when I get back.

I got a few things from Yours which were in the sale and therefore incredibly cheap! My sequin jacket I wore at Plus London and my velvet dress I wore last night:

Necklace: Primark

Dress: Yours

Belt: Accessorize

Bangles: Primark

Leggings: New Look

Shoes: Evans

Just wanted to say a quick hello and thank you to new followers, hope you enjoy my little blog x

Yesterday was cats and today was birds

I'm not at one with the animals like Doctor Doolittle, in fact I prefer them silent and gazing at me through shop windows. I seem to have acquired a range of animal and insect jewellery that is at odds with my general feeling towards the real life ones. I have cats, dogs, horses, flies and an owl:

Cardigan: H&M

Top: Evans

Owly: H&M

Jeggings: Yours

Shoes: Evans

Plus loving in London

Last night I attend the much anticipated ++London Blogger meet at the Strand Gallery. It was a night I won't forget in a hurry! It was great to meet bloggers who you read about face to face (a couple even recognised me!) and have a real life conversation. We quaffed champers and cc's (cupcakes) and generally had a merry time! There was a professional photographer so there was lots of modely posing going on and surprise photos being taken all over the shop!

I especially loved meeting Carla who was one of my first followers and me her and who exceeded all my expectations about her! That girl is a hoot and a real sweetie.

Anyway on to the crucial outfit, a mix of velvet and sequins:

Jacket: Yours

Brooch: Butler & Wilson

Dress: Beth Ditto for Evans

Belt: H&M

Shoes: Office

Shabby chic

Had to go to the jobcentre today and ended up wearing a shirt that was rather crumpled and like it had seen better days, which was pretty appropriate really! Did also wear new lovely jumper that I wore for my fashion week interview as it is so on trend and fabulous:

Jumper: River Island

Shirt: Primark

Jeggings: Yours

Shoes: Primark
