The LOOK Show - Part One...

After a week of mentally brainstorming outfits and pretty much smiling non stop, The LOOK Show finally arrived on Friday and felt like an absolute dream. It's now safely stored away in the 'Favourite Days of all time' section of my brain! I am one of those people/freaks that like to organise everything to the finest detail. I had my outfit sorted (Popular outfit number 3 from the post below!) I had a suitcase full of clothes and shoes, and made sure to street view everywhere I was going ... I just re-read this sentence and you must all be thinking JEEZ GET TO THE GOOD STUFF! I have about 4 blog posts worth of material coming up - So where do I start...

...The LOOK Show took place in the beautiful Victoria House in central London. The venue was perfect and completely decked out with bright orange LOOK logos, bartenders in Hawaiian shirts and smartly dressed waiters. Making the most of the champagne and canap├ęs (thanks m&s) myself and my friend Sophie stumbled upon the New Look photobooth - They gave me a hat to wear inside and as soon as I put it on I was poached by some satorialist style photographers - It's a shame I am a little awkward in front of cameras. I like a pout - who doesn't - but my face morphed into some questionable poses!



When the time came for the show I felt so proud of myself and my little blog for getting this far! Something I could definitely get used to...!! Sitting on the front row was amazingly surreal, and I had some good company. Sara to the left of me, and nneoma and Lara to the right! With Kavita and Maffionista a little further down! Everyone was so friendly, and I met some lovely bloggers. I think that's the amazing thing about high street fashion. It appeals to everyone! I went to the show excited about seeing H&M and River Island and came out most impressed by Marks and Spencer and Mango. As I'm openly addicted to high street fashion I feel lucky to have been able to sit so close because you truly experience the texture and cut of the fabric, it makes all the difference to see something in motion - and now I want to buy it ALL.



So if you missed out this season on tickets I've put together a VERY amateur video as a memento of the day. Sorry it's a bit wobbly!



CELEB COUNT...

Shayne Ward.
Emma Willis (STUNNING)
Sophie Ellis-Bextor.
Marina Diamandis (and her mice...)
Olivia Palermo - Yes, the Japanese were right... she has a small face!
The Stylist man from Lorraine - who keeps me entertained when i eat my breakfast.
The Hair and Beauty Tutorial girls from LOOK.co.uk! I wanted to talk to them all day!

I missed Keisha Buchannon and Jaime Winstone - which is upsetting because I'm massive fans of both! It's funny how celebs are so much smaller than you imagine in real life! Olivia is minuscule!

THINGS THAT MADE ME SAY 'WOW!'...

Champagne.
Marina's jumper.
Look Good Feel Better.
Chocolate Fountain.
The Galliano perfume - hooray for that in my goody bag! Oh which reminds me...
THE GOODY BAG!
The amazing top knots.
The gorge models.
Umbrella's for Uniqlo - although the superstitious fish wife in me was thinking eeek!
Alexis Jordan's bum and Topshop trousers!
The M&S Styling.
The white pleated Maxi by French Connection.



(Me with the LOVELY ladies from Look Good Feel Better.Charity!)

I love your posts on the show! hehe you were right about alexis jordan's bum! I thought she was fab live, even tho I'm not an r&b/pop girl. :)
I have to be honest, I didn't know who Keisha was at first but I thought she was absolutely stunning! It was funny seeing her bob up and down on the front row when Alexis was playing,she looked like she was enjoying hereself!
