Get the LFW look with the ASOS Daily Edit

With London Fashion Week in full swing, ASOS has been bringing us the best picks for what to wear to be front row ready. Each day, ASOS personal stylist, and admitted trendaholic Megan Ellaby has been bringing us a daily edit from the voluminous ASOS ranges, and edit that offers cool pieces that would not look out-of-place at London Fashion Week.

It seems that Megan is totally on the ball when it comes to her choices, as some of the styles are very similar to those being worn to the most exclusive shows this season. Model Laura Bailey has been photographed wearing mannish pieces, wide leg trousers and men’s style shirts on the front row, a departure from her usual feminine style. Coats are a big story,  and while I’m not sure that it has been cold enough for the styles worn by Daisy Lowe and Jade Parfitt, I think these are great pieces to be adding to your upcoming Winter Wardrobe.

My current style crush, Poppy Delavingne shows how I slogan sweatshirt can be made evening ready. She adds a beautiful feathered skirt and glossy bag to turn something you might usually wear with jeans into a statement piece. I have to say I love the ‘sorry not sorry’ version from the ASOS range.

ASOS are proving that you don’t have to be at London Fashion Week to get the ‘London Look.’

Catwalk4Change – Why I’m involved.

If we’re being totally honest, I’m not the perfect person to be strutting my stuff on a catwalk. Not super tall, not amazingly beautiful, a mom who never completed shifted the baby weight and is not all that worried by the fact.But, On the 6th September, walking a catwalk is exactly what I am going to be doing, and all for a very special cause.

Models of Diversity, an internationally famous campaign for diversity within the fashion industry, has joined forces with the gorgeous blogger Edita of Pret-a-reporter, to change the rules of fashion this autumn with CATWALK4CHANGE. On 6th of September an amazing fashion show will kick-start London Fashion Week involving some of the leading UK fashion bloggers and jaw-droppingly gorgeous mature models…and yours truly.

Ladies of all ages, shapes and sizes will showcase couture creations from the  most coveted and diverse designers from all over the globe. And, if that is not exciting enough in itself, you can also expect to see some surprise celebrity guests…so watch this space!

 

Models of Diversity are saying ‘The time has come to make the industry take note: the rules of beauty are there to be broken! CHANGE HAPPENS NOW!’ I really couldn’t agree more, which is why I am proud to be involved in what promises to be a spectacular event.

 

With all the proceeds from ticket sales and the  online auction go to MIND and MACMILLAN, this is also fashion with a conscience, and is sure to be one of the most important event this autumn. Tickets go on sale on 1st July. For all enquiries email info@modelsofdiversity.org

Hope to see you there.x

My LPSFW outfit + Win! with Clothing at Tesco.

Last week I was invited to attend London Plus size Fashion Weekend as a guest of Tesco. Of course I said ‘Yes!’ in my loudest voice, and then proceeded to squeal for a good many minutes when they said I would be able to choose an outfit from the Clothing at Tesco site to wear on the day. As a fan of F&F, this was a fantastic opportunity to test drive pieces from the range, although I knew just settling on one outfit wouldn’t be easy.

I knew I wanted to choose a dress, and there were a few that caught the eye, including a fabulous silk feel shirt dress in a vibrant orange shade that I fell in love with. But, in the end, there was only one dress that I could choose. This was the F&F Signature Floral Peplum Dress. This was a dress that clicked so many boxes for me. It had sleeves, it was stretchy, and it was bright and colourful. I loved the digital style floral print that reminded me of a Mary Katrantzou design, and the fact that the peplum wasn’t a full skirted one to add inches, but was a slight, subtle frill on the side of the dress.

I teamed the jacket with a simple navy blazer, that I originally thought was black. It was a perfect match, making this a rather happy accident.This blazer is so versatile, looking as good with jeans as it does over a dress, and yet costs just £16, making it a total bargain. I also added a pair of faux suede shoe boots that looked stylish but were also easy to walk in, a good thing when the nearest station was almost half a mile away.

I absolutely loved my outfit, the dress, in particular, received lots of positive comments and compliments, not the least of which was a compliment from designer and all round girl crush Anna Scholz, who told me she loved my dress and asked where it was from. With the whole outfit costing less than £60 I think this is real proof that you don’t have to spend a fortune to make an impact.
