Spring/Summer 2011: Festival Fringe and LOOK Show Ramblings...

Only 3 sleeps until the LOOK Show... In a strange sort of way I wish it was more. The run up to the show is so exciting! Everyone is going mad for tickets on Twitter - and I don't blame them! Lara announced on her blog that the supermodel Petra Nemcova is walking in the show! So roll on body envy over that Victoria's Secret Angel... I also found out that Alexis Jordan (Jay-Z's protege) is performing! Although one of the most exciting things was Wildfox hinting that some lucky so and so's will be getting a little wildfox gift in their goodybags - please oh please let it be me!

I don't think i've actually stopped smiling since I found out I was a finalist! I feel so lucky and overwhelmed to have come this far! I'm hoping to meet some bloggers whilst i'm there - in fact some of my favourites are going Gem Fatale, Fashion Champagne, LLYMLRS and other finalists i heart vintage, maffionista, twentyteneightfour and Sarah Luxe.

If you follow me on Twitter then you'll know i'm still trying to find an outfit for the show! I'm probably over thinking it now but as it's a show of all the hottest trends on the high street i thought i should incorporate some sort of trendage into my outfit. One of my faves for SS11 is the Navaro/Fringe trend. I just bloody love it. I think i'm a former mexican from a past life...

Here is some of the best fringing I have seen from the SS11 Collections...

Mark Fast, Missoni, Unique, Roberto Cavalli.

Ralph Lauren, Elie Tahari, Lanvin, Gucci.

Roberto Cavalli, Dior, Roberto Cavalli.

There are also some great bits on the high street. Topshop have loads of Tassled items in at the moment...Suede bags, Crochet dresses, Fringed crop tops and lots of jewellery.

I would probably wear, what my boyfriend calls my 'pochahontas' cardigan! As seen below :)

What do you guys think of the trend? Would you try it? It's total festival wear no?
I'm going to update the blog tomorrow with another one of my favourite SS11 trends. So keep posted...

I like the fringing and how everything looks so edgy adn frazzled! I had an amazing pair of fringed shorts last year but I stupidly put them in the washing machine without thinking and they were ruined, never found them on ebay either =(

Congrats on being a finalist, you must be beyond excited! Don't overthink your outfit, it's best to wear something you feel totally comfortable in, one of your go-to outfits and then maybe you can spice it up with a bit of fringing :) xx

I wish a ticket would flutter my way!!
The fringing trend is definitely perfect for festivals. I dream about what I'll wear for Glastonbury this year when I feel a bit of sunshine outside. It's not really my style though, but I think maybe a pair of brown, suede shorts with some kind of mild tasselling might be ok :)

Can't wait to see what outfit you decide on !
