COLLECTION / PHILIP LIM FALL 17 – NEW ROMANTICISM

collagecollage-3

When browsing Business of Fashion earlier today, this collection instantly caught my eye. The bold red catwalk contrasting with the on-trend fuchsia pink backdrop made the more minimalistic garments stand out beautifully.

When looking through the looks, the use of fabrics was something I found particularly interesting. Puffer jackets, honeycomb mesh garments and pink satin sock boots all collided together to create beautiful wearable outfits.

However, I was not a huge fan of the last half of the collections and felt the leather bustiers and orange shearing coats had no place next to the electric blue accents and tech fabrics.

WEARING / THE ‘PERFECT’ COAT

DSC_0705collage-17For a while now, I’ve been searching for the ‘perfect’ winter coat ready for when autumn hits, but I’ve really struggled. However, last week I was browsing in some thrift shops near where I live and absolutely feel in love with this dark grey longline one. It’s a few sizes larger than I would normally wear, but I feel that gives it character, making it perfect for layering or throwing over my shoulders.
And for £10, it was an absolute steal.

WEARING / CAMPUS TOUR

Today I went to view a local University with my family. I’m interested in doing a degree in Fashion Promotion and the way this one was run sounded amaze to me (plus there’s chances to go abroad to China, Paris and many other places so how could I say no to that)! I also liked the fact they incorporated some photography into the course which I’ve found a lot of other universities do not do.

Anyway, this is the outfit I chose to wear for the day!

IMG_5862IMG_5860IMG_5859I based my whole outfit around this beautiful grey turtleneck which I managed to pick up from a charity shop for 99p. Yes! This beauty was less than £1! I love it so so much and it is one of my favourite buys from this fall. Along with this black woolen jacket with a faux fur collar, which I also managed to get from a charity shop for £5. I’ve worn this every single day since I got it – it’s just the perfect size and I can wear it when it’s really cold as well as when it’s a little warmer like today. Which is perfect with the always changing British weather! Yet again I am wearing my bargain white ripped mom jeans from Zara along with my black Dr. Marten sandals.

IMG_5863I then chose to wear my black round sunglasses from Urban Outfitters which I got in the summer. Whilst we were out, I also bought a new necklace from New look (which I don’t have on here as I put it on after I took these pictures) but you can find it here and it’s an absolute bargain for £3.99!

Thanks for reading!
