What I wore to London Fashion Week

 I cannot believe how long ago it's been since London Fashion Week! I was only there for the one day...I was working all weekend so I had to squeeze as many shows as I could into one day. Ever since then I've been jam-packed-super-fantastic-busy so blogging posts have been more delayed that I hoped. This being only the second time I have ever attended Fashion Week (the first- I can finally reveal- was when I made the final for the Fashion One Correspondent Search competition woop!! More on that another day!).  So I kind of knew what to expect this time around and (shoe-wise!) what to wear.

Foolishly for last September at LFW I wore heels, and given Somerset House is one big cobblestone it did not go down well and my feet and I learnt a lesson: I was running around with a camera crew all day and night and I spent most of the day struggling to keep my balance! I must say that a fair majority of girls do rock up in heels...and, you know what, fair play to them but I couldn't bring myself to do it again!
As graceful and elegant as I try to appear I'm one of those girls who does in fact fall over from time to time, I am rather clumsy and have fallen over in public on numerous occasions, most notably on a busy street **coughs London Bridge** In front of a load of people (who kindly helped me up...which is maybe worse?)

Did I mention that when I did fall over by London Bridge I ripped my tights? cut my knee, started to bleed and started to cry?....oh god Rebecca honestly! Stop the story right there! We've heard enough! I think ripping my tights was bad enough but the tears?....really?...I have no idea why I cried really!?
Princess plaits for the day got a got a lot of loving.

So armed with my new camera the Canon EOS M (which is brilliant so far and I love it) I was ready to cover Fashion Week....my way. I took over 500 photos which I am currently still sifting through! Which will be coming your way very soon.

I made some lovely new friends while waiting in the queue for shows...you've got to love fellow bloggers, mostly lovely girlies in the same boat, giving each other advice on what ISO setting to use for the next show, swapping business cards, gossipping and guessing together which shows you might blag your way into!
