I’ve not been able to find many images from LFWM of my attire, next season I’ll make sure I take some myself so I can reference them better for the blog.
Day 2 was unbelievably cold, my feet were frozen and I could barely type on my phone as my fingers were going numb. Despite that however, I think I managed to style it out with some ‘northern charm’ and act like all was good.
My suitcase was filled to the brim (that bloody cape took up half the space) so I didn’t think to pack a coat (or even a jumper to wear under the suit). But hey, the show must go on.
You know me by now, if I’m going to be wearing a suit, you know that suit is going to be somewhat ‘standout’ whether that be the accessories or the pattern/colours, I can’t do plain… It’s a curse really.
This year I had also rather excitingly bought myself a backpack. I know how nerdy that sounds, but I haven’t had one for quite some time so it felt like a thrill. The last one I bought was a squiggle print Vivienne Westwood backpack from the Africa collection and, although I loved it very much, it was falling to bits.
My main requirement was to find a bag that I could wear with a suit and it still look smart and sleek. That’s when I decided to by myself a rather boxy backpack from Dr. Martens and I must say, I absolutely adore it! Good job Harold.
All in all, I’m quite happy with this look, I know I wouldn’t be able to wear it everywhere but the suit itself can be worn as separates as it’s striking enough on their own. I might wear the trousers to work tomorrow, I’ve inspired myself just writing this.

This shot was taken at the Falmouth Fashion Show 2013.
I was blogging the show from the front row, sitting with the Head of Fashion.
It was an incredible show this year with some brilliant runway collections from 3rd year Fashion and Performance Sportswear Design students.
I didn’t know what I was going to wear (which is a number one dilemma) but seeing as I had got this bespoke suit made, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to wear it!
Creating a juxtaposition of clean, British bespoke tailoring with Boho style headgear I decided to piece the with suit with my vintage Gianni Versace Vogue Print tie and my new Vivienne Westwood ‘CHAOS’ headband and my circular sunglasses from festivalspecs.com
