Here's a few photos taken by the lovely Helena of what I wore yesterday to Somerset House when I ventured down there to snap some street style shots. This season I had to make do with what I already had in my wardrobe as I just have not had the money to spend on clothes unfortunately. These super old (and by super old I mean maybe circa 2009) Topshop Unique trousers have always been gathering dust in the back of my wardrobe. They're a bit garish for day-to-day life and they're also a little big on my waist, so they've never been worn. I like to call them my 'fish trousers' because I cannot help but think I resemble a giant fish or sea creature when wearing them. However, I made the brash decision to let them see a little daylight and secure the baggy waistband with a vintage belt.

Despite the trousers being rather glitzy I still wanted to dress them down and create an early 70's vibe, so I threw over this trusty Minkpink kimono and H&M fedora hat. As I'm down in London for the week I'm practically living directly out of a suitcase so I really did not have too much to choose from. I've been a little quiet on the blogging front recently due to a confidence crisis, which is something every twenty-something female suffers from time-to-time. Taking my own photo and posting it on the internet has been the very last thing I wanted to do whilst I felt like this. One of the main reasons for this is because I destroyed my hair in the process of trying to make it lilac and failing. I went from ginger to platinum blonde to peach to lilac to pink to bright orange to brunette within the space of just three weeks. There is honestly nothing worse than looking in the mirror and despising your own hair. Thankfully now I'm content with my hair as an auburn brunette and I'm going to give the dying a little break to let my hair recover. I still need it cut before I'm totally happy with it, but for now I'm content.

I've decided to stay home today rather than return to Somerset House in favour of eating as much food as possible before having to return to my desolate and depressing food cupboards in my student house in Southampton. Good choice, don't you think?



  1. No way, I thought you'd splashed out on new Unique trousers as they are just like the awesome jumpsuit Jourdan Dunn wore in the AW13 show. Testament to keeping hold of all your standout pieces!

  2. You look awesome! I love love love this outfit! x


  3. Those trousers are stunning. You need to wear them more often!

  4. Everything about this outfit is so perfect, I love it! X

  5. I'm SO jealous, 1 of the fact you were at LFW, and 2 because THOSE TROUSERS are insane! xo
