Fashion Week Tips

Jennifer - Stylish Clin d'Oeil said...

lol: I understand why plasters are a must for the fashion week. it's so painful to wear everyday heels! It hurts the feet and also my back...!!!

Ioana Liliana Gheorghe said...

You are so true! these are the absolute musts!

Ceeeeee!! said...

I think that whatever you put there are basic that a woman should always carry the bag, but in my opinion, this time, the camera battery is a must! hehe

I could not agree more. Plasters and caffeine are essential to surviving fashion week! My feet still have yet to recover from 5 days in heels.

Also just wanted to say it was lovely to meet you at the Bertie shoes thing the other week. I absolutely love your blog and will definitely be following it from now on. Hopefully bump into you at another fashion event sometime soon.

Love Ella. X

Looks like you got it down!

Grace said...

I'm used to 2am starts (oh the life of a visual merchandiser)... so I've got that area covered! Not that it'll stop me from coffee consumption.

Love Grace.

Fashion Queen said...

I like your tips.

Alexandra said...

Great tips Kirsty, especially the camera one. I'm the worst at charging at night, and it always sucks to start it the next day and be all excited only to have it die immediately on you!

Love Alexandra

I always have a little purse in my bag filled with band-aids, bobby pins, hair ties etc - someone ALWAYS needs them, even on a regular day!
