I’m not actually wearing this today *slaps wrists* I know I should post on time but lately that is proving almost impossible!

Yesterday was my last full day in London so we tried to make the most of it while fitting in a suitable amount of uni work too!

We hit Brick Lane which was amazing, I’ve fallen totally in love with that area. Parts of it felt so derelict and tired but then suddenly I’m hit with the quirkiest and quaintest shop ever. Bizarre! I loved the contrast there.

From there we went and touched the Gherkin, yup, touched it. I’ve always wanted to go ever since watching The Apprentice (it’s featured in the intro along with several other buildings but this one is my fave and I like to think that Lord Sugar lives in the top of it).

We then did the usual of stopping and staring at things, drank coffee and got crushed in a tube, yadda yadda yadda.

This fabulous day was all done in this outfit, which remained comfy, warm and chic!


Versace for H&M

I posted about this collaboration a week or so before it was due to launch in the UK. I spoke about my excitement, lust and total envy of anyone who gets their hands on a piece from the range. I was comforted by the fact that no one I know was going to the launch or intending on buying from the range (we are hideously poor students after all, so hideous that we can event afford £14.99 belt by the one and only Versace, sad I know) that was when my friend popped up just days before the launch telling me that she will be in London over that weekend (?!!?!)

Well I tell you, if we weren’t such good friends I probably would have jeopardised her trip. Since she values me and our friendship so much (she’ll moan at me for making our friendship seem one way..) she took it upon herself to take photos for me to blog about! So I share with you now the experience I wanted first hand but had via iPhone photography, enjoy!

After looking at these you’re probably insanely jealous if you didn’t go, or if you did; reminiscing over the best, affordable collab you’ve ever seen! I’ve got to say even through imagery I am impressed, everything from the mannequins, shop fixtures and velvet hangers looks totally divine! I am huuugely disappointed that I missed out on this and I’m hoping that I will get my hands on something from the AW11 range, if not I’ve always got SS12 to look forward to for their next collaboration!
