London Fashion Week ended last Tuesday, leaving me a nasty cold (I am dying) but also the memories of some pretty cool experiences. I've finally brought myself to go through the hundreds of photos and thought my first LFW post be a bit of a street style post. Friday the 13th didn't bode well for us at Somerset House - it rained so much and it continued throughout the weekend. Luckily, on the Monday the weather was pretty good and that's when I got most of these snaps. I forgot to take my camera for the first three days (worst blogger ever) so I had to make do with my dads i pad -  more outfit posts from LFW to come soon.

I managed to get photos of my two favorite outfits however, the first being this awesome Monki dress the lovely Erica let me pick out at the showroom just before fashion week. If you are crap at planning outfits like me you'll appreciate how much of a lifesaver this one was - only had to faff around for 15 minutes choosing what coat to wear over it haha! I also went to Monki to pick up some jeans and found these smiley face socks I included on a wishlist a while back, I was on a bit of a Monki hype that day and I LOVED it.

The best bits of LFW were the ones I shared with blogger babes - It was nice to chill with everyone and catch up, the New Look Refuel room was the place to be again this season, champagne, manis and a photo-booth took the edge off the fact that it was pissing it down outside.

SO, more to come, I went to some really good shows (OMG KTZ!!!!) and the most bloody amazing sick parties ever - expect to be reading about them soon!

#OOTD : Topshop Kimono, Sheer T shirt, Ravers and GS Shop



 T shirt - ASOS
Kimono - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop Joni
Shoes - Topshop Ravers via Ebay



So yesterday I attended the GS Shop show with my girl Jen and this is what I wore :) If you follow me on Instagram ( @Frankiegd) you are probably sick of seeing this red kimono I got from Topshop a while back (I've got matching shorts to how cool is that!), it's my staple jacket a the moment whilst it's too hot for denim. For some reason outfit planning doesn't work for me and this is the result, I always end up throwing something on last minute - refer back to my LFW outfits last year haha! 

The GS Shop show, which I was lucky enough to attend thanks to Pop PR comprised the work of  four Korean Central St Martins alumni designers. All four shows seemed to be A/W to me, a little confusing ( I'm hating A/W coming in the shops at the moment, still in summer mode) but I loved the coats and jackets - especially the mens ones from Xess Homme. I wasn't overly jazzed by anything in particular but I've included a few photos of my favorite looks from a couple of the designers. 

All in all I  had a great time, and a hangover by 9pm thanks to the champers. This show got me SO EXCITED for London Fashion Week which is coming up very soon, I'm actually trying to plan shit this time - got some cool bits and pieces to wear and plenty of amazing shows to see. If any of you are going to be around this London Fashion Week let me know :) It would be great to meet up!

Hey guys, I know it's been  long time. I've been knee deep in clunge deadlines and blogging has taken a back-seat I'm afraid. Also, I keep on having these little epis like, why do I blog? is there any point ? Is it boring for everyone to read? Should I be posting swatches of all my makeup?? Dressing up in something I'm not actually wearing that day? It's so cold, dressing nice is hard man! Wah Wah Waahhhhh! It''s been difficult, but I'm going to keep at it and be me. So decide to do this post showing you a few cool looks I photog'd (badly) at LFW :) I miss it already, I met so many cool people, I hung out with Jen from for the whole thing and she is a BABE, I wouldn't have had a clue if she wasn't there with me. We were complete blaggers - managed to get  free Mac makeovers and goodybags- they said they were booked up but hanging around worked. I also met Promise  of Follow me in 5inch heels, Wunmi from Daisy-mak, Breeny-Lee, Melissa from Melissa's Wardrobe, Liv from Fashion Somebody and Lucia from Lucia Lolita. Nice to hang out with other boggers, I did feel a little like an imposter though haha!

In other news... The winner of my giveaway is DUH DUH DUUUUUUH

Lucy B. ^_^

I've emailed you YAY!

Also...THANKS BABBAS to everyone who subscribed to my Youttube channel!!!! I have only done one video and got 107 subs BOO-YA! I want to do another tonight, It'll probably be another haul/ update, but let me know if you'd like to see anything in particular? 

Last but not least, I've been wanting to do a wishlist for ages now. Been shopping like crazy and always wanting more, and I think I've found a few gems you'll appreciate:

1. ASOS Fatal sandals - £45 - These are amazing! It would be nice to feel like a hard nut wearing these, remind me of Docs a little :)
2. Monki Mella bra - £12 -  Sexy and comfy, best of both - and only £12.
3. Miss Selfridge white leather jacket - £165 -  Bloody expensive, but I lust after this at work all the time, justification = timeless.
4. Ebay Smiley face crop top - £5.99 - Cheap and fun, seen this on a lot of sites for triple  the price, Ebay FTW.
5. Barry M Matte White nai polish - £2.99 -  Don't know why but I don't have a white nail polish, this matte one would be perfect.
6. Adidas Super Tech Ink - £90 - Had my eye on these for a while, they look amazing on and a nice change from Nikes
7. Topman Tiger print shirt - £30 -  I wanted to buy this for Rob, but it's a bit too jazzy for him - all the better for me :D
8. Rihanna for River Island dungaree crop top - £30 -  It's sold out online but still in shops. Wasn't sure  till I tried it on but I can feel I'm going to be wearing this all summer!
9. Nelly Holographic perspex heels - £45 - Perfect. Need to stop buying strappy sandals too, who do I think I am, Rihanna?
10. Educate Elevate Slammin' tee - £20 - I love this  brand, so effing 90's, fresh and with a great message, saw this on their Instagram AND I WANT IT! Would make it into a sick crop top.
11. Topshop Astrix chunky boots - £40 - Best purchase I've made all week, so much love for these!!!!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand ..... I've been nominated for that Company blogger thingy so if you like le blog it would be nice if you could nominate me, might get to go to some glitzy event  and god knows I never get to go to any!

Loads of love

I had the most amazing Friday at London Fashion Week! I woke up ridiculously hungover after what may have been the best valentines night EVER, ripped my wardrobe apart for a last minute outfit then rushed over to Somerset House to meet up with Helena from Bell's Fashion an hour and a half late (sorry man :S). Gutted I missed the first show but I managed to get to a few more later, Belle Sauvage, Runway Collective and Nova Chiu ( going to be doing a show post another day stay tuned :) ) In between shows Jen of J Noir took me over to the Waldorf Hilton to the New Look Refuel room which was SO GOOD! Champers, little sandwiches, brownies bubbletea, smoothies, hair, nails, eyelashes, photobooth IT HAD EVERYTHING! I hadn't had time to eat anything that day so not gonna lie I got a little tipsy... free champagne okay?? I also met a friend of Jens and blogger Sheree of Glitz & Grime who was so lovely/cool/beautiful, had some photobooth fun ...
