Some of you may remember that we took part in Dorothy Perkins SS14 Style Essentials Campaign (here and here) and we are over the moon to announce that they have asked us back to do their AW14 Campaign too. I most definitely in team AW when it comes to styling, infact the one thing I can't stand in the summer is style, so I was excited to see what Style Essentials we'd be asked to play with.

Firstly, we were asked to style The Shirt - hallelujah, this is probably my signature 'piece' and most definitely a style essential to me, never mind Dorothy Perkins! I eat, sleep and breathe in shirts and have done since my college days, even with my ever changing wardobe, my shirt collection just grows and grows. Clean crisp white collars to a very scary amount of (ex)boyfriend check shirts, I've got it, and I loveee it. 

So, it seems I love the shirt so much, I had to wear two. The best thing about shirts are their layering capabilites - under/over, top/bottom, or simply tied round the middle, they do just about everything. I chose to style two very contrasting shirts so layered a delicate cream blouse over a dark patterened button up so they could each stand out against the other. To make the shirt(s) the real focus in this outfit, I chose to go with a simple and staple pair of jeans, a sleeveless mac and black finishing touches.

LFW Talks Digital: Talk
Hakaan Yildirim

with Charlotte from The Goodowl

Sunday was definitely Funday this week! Naomi kicked off the moring at Marios Schwab but then we spent the rest of the day catching up with blogging friends and our favourite photographer Holly. We still can't believe how warm it was over the weekend and these outfits may not have been in the original plan but they defiinitely pin point our indivudual styles perfectly and that's exactly what fashion week is all about.

On Tuesday, Naomi headed back to Somerset House to wrap up the weekend with a LFW Talks Digital talk with an amazing panel including Henry Holland and the Hakaan Yildirim show (bumblebee sweatshirt the best thing everrr?) She also styled Charlotte from The Goodowl Blog in head to toe Beyond Retro featuring AW trends red and varsity! and that was it! Can't actually believe it's over for yet another season but we've both come back brimming with inspiration - here's to the next 6 months!

Day 2 was a much quieter day for us and after the rushing around all day Friday we were glad for it! We were able to chill out and catch up with our favourite bloggers aswell as heading over to Fashion Scout to watch a few shows. 

After a very colourful first day and with the weather being so up and down we went with our Urban Outfitters outfits for Day 2 as they were less layers incase of insane heat like Day 1! Naomi started the day by getting her hair styled at Blue Tit Dalston by Kamila which got the day of to a very good start! We continued our takeover for Lookbook.nu & Red Hot Sunglasses on Day 2 so got lots of snaps of street style and sunnies. 

Naomi was lucky enough to head to the House Of Holland show later on in the day which was at Victoria House. The show was unbelievable with a 60s flower power vibe with glitter make up and just got out of bed hair - we want the whole collection! It also had a star studded FROW including Alexa Chung and Rita Ora to name but a few! 

We hope you have been enjoying our LFW updates, stay tuned for Day 3's antics tomorrow!

After weeks of planning and preparing, it is finally London Fashion Week and for the first time in a long time, the sun decided to shine over Somerset House for Day 1. This threw a small spanner in the works when it came to outfits as we were a little hot but that certainly didn't spoil our day! 

We kicked off the day at the Company Magazine/Office Shoes Blogger Breakfast and then headed straight to our first how. Sleek silhouettes and updated art prints from J S Lee followed by a cheeky photo with frow favourite Millie Mackintosh. We then caught the Bora Aksu show which was filled with delicate lace and the most incredible purple veil. I think we could see Naomi in most of this collection!

After some lovely catching up on the cobbles with some of our favourite bloggers, we were lucky enough to see Jean-Pierre Braganza and Fyodor Golan before the day was out. Which was your favourite show from Day 1? We're completely torn!
