London Fashion Week 2015: What I wore

Aah, London Fashion Week. An opportunity to dress to the nines on a day when you wouldn't normally get out of your pyjamas with the benefit that no one will judge you for it.

Whether or not some people agree or not, fashion plays an important role in this world, as explained so perfectly The Devil Wears Prada. London is one of the fashion capitals of the world (if not THE capital) and London Fashion Week is pretty much the highlight of a yearly calendar, both A/W and S/S. As well as the big names that we can all dream of owning, it's an opportunity to show off the rising talent on the fashion scene and how Britain really has an influence over such a world wide culture and obsession.

Obviously, I had a mild panic over what to wear. OK, mild panic is a complete UNDERstatement. I was completely overwhelmed and even had heart palpitations at one point. I spent the majority of Friday emailing my boyfriend in pretty much all capital letters about how I had nothing to wear, how I hate my wardrobe and how I thought people would judge me if I turned up wearing Primark (snob).

But then I remembered I got a Ted Baker voucher for Christmas... Thanks Mum!

I own a lot of Ted Baker and I think it's clear that I'm a bit of a fan. However, these all pretty much fit into the 'accessories' category and other than a t-shirt I have nothing to wear and show off. London Fashion Week was finally an opportunity to spend my voucher and treat myself to something that I will pretty much wear all the time.

After some intense research and calling multiple Ted Baker stores to get hold of the Bluoise dress that's in their sale I had no joy and made a quick dash home to get the voucher and go to the Regent Street store, which is pretty much the mother ship, and ended up in the fitting room with pretty much everything I wanted.

Various snapchats to Charlie, Distracted from the fitting room, opinions of the boyfriend and Ted Baker sales staff I went home with the beautiful Viviann dress that even received an audible gasp from someone else in the fitting room when I stepped out to show it to Gary.

I think this may also be the loudest dress in the shop!

Due to the boldest pattern known to man there was a lot of debate in store and at home over what I should wear it with and the decision was made to keep it simple with a biker jacket, huge Mary-Jane platforms and my Ted Baker clutch.

I think the dress is a good mix between absolutely mental while still conservative and 'classy' as it's quite modest in the cut. My choice of accessories helps to tone it down a little so it can even be worn for a casual night out so I'll be wearing it again for the second time in a week when I go to the theatre. I'm pretty much in love with it!


How would you wear a bold print? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I really like how you teamed the dress with the jacket, a great choice. I like the cut of the dress, particularly the collar, it really stand out.

    1. Thanks! Yes, it was best to go with this jacket out of my collection because it really toned down how mental it was! I think the collar was one of the many selling points!
