I was one lucky duck last week. I know everyone says “I never win anything” but I REALLY don’t ever win anything! Mind you I rarely enter contests so that it part of the problem. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got an e-mail from the team at Batiste saying I had won tickets to the Amanda Wakeley show at London Fashion Week. I’ve attended fashion week in Vancouver a few times and it’s always such a rush to see the designers blood, sweat and tears come down the runway, but London fashion week is a whole other ball game.
I won two front row tickets to the show, so I took Ken as my date. I wasn’t expecting him to really take it all in, but he did! His comment was “some of it was actually wearable, sometimes I wasn’t sure where to look and the girls were way too skinny” haha. Pretty typical responses from a man at a fashion show. But over all, he enjoyed it!
In pervious years at Vancouver fashion week, I went for outfits that were a little more wacky and out of my comfort zone (See here, here, here). Looking back now, I wish I hadn’t and that I had gone with something more true to my style. So this time around I went for something I would wear on any other day, with the addition of heels. I’m only 5’4, so I needed the extra height around the 6′ models.
A hat is always an easy way to elevate your outfit in a pinch. I hardly ever wear hats but I don’t know why. I think I’m going to try to incorporate them more often. Plus, I’ll be able to wash my hair less often if I have a stylish way to cover up my greasy gym hair 🙂
Since this outfit is mainly vintage, I’ve sourced similar options that you can hop below 🙂
