London Fashion Week: Day One

Yes I know i'm a day late but I was too tired to blog yesterday. The day started at 5am (I am not a morning person, I'm more of a DO NOT talk to me before midday kinda person) I set off to Somerset house feeling like it was my first day of school. LOL! I excitedly queued up for my press pass and received an LFW canvas bag with a guide and a sharpie (I love stationary)
My first show was Paul Costelloe. I'm not sure how or why but I ended up on the front row. EEEEK! I pretended it wasn't a big deal - because I do this everyday of course! Ha Ha. I loved the show, but I will blog about that later. I had some time to kill before I had to got to another show so I went to Oxford Street for some retail therapy. Where I saw Olivia Palamero - I was far to shy to stop her for a picture. She is absolutely stunning! The Aminaka Wilmont show took me over to Victoria House. I didn't see much as I was standing for this one. I had a lady infront of me who was taller than me (I'm 5ft 2/3) who put both her arms in the air to film with one and take pics with the other. Everytime I tried to take a pic she moved and all I got was the back of her head or her arm! ANNOYING! After that it was back to Somerset House for free champagne and Bora Aksu. More tomorrow as i'm off to bed as the caffeine is wearing off.

Pls excuse the pics I am having serious camera trouble - I'm going to give in and buy a canon! Any suggestions?

Not an expert on canons. I have a panasonic lumix with leica lense. It's a cross between point and shoot and slr and it has been great for me. Love the boots!

Bit random, but I love your duvet cover!
I so nearly bought those spotty tights yesterday, then I bailed out & am now wishing I'd got them - just not sure I'd quite pull 'em off for some reason...

Forgot to mention the Canon SD1200 is pretty good. Comes in a hot pink which was the cherry on top for me!
