Fashion week inspiration

These fashion weeks can really consume a lot of your time! Whilst I enjoy browsing the new looks for the next season, it sometimes put it all in perspective... The cost of haute couture is unbelievable, and its not always the holy grail, so instead I turn to the ready to wear collections which cost way less.
A few of my favourites at LFW AW2013, were Paul Smith with the gorgeous colour blocking; Burberry Prorsum with gorgeous red accents and Tom Ford with geometric prints and animal prints.

Burberry (loving the heart print)

Burberry- something I could definitely wear

Burberry (with kitten heels - another winner!)

The important thing I take from these shows is what is trending, how to make it look on your budget and have fun! It's also rather interesting to see how the old trends are being "re-worked" and it makes me regret giving away all my things to charity to make space for the new!


I therefore did a recon of my closet and found a pair of Forever New heels which I haven't worn in a while... and they would certainly work with todays trend. Chunky heel, check; platform peep-toe, check; pretty pastel, check!
