It’s finally Day Four of London Fashion Week!! This is the day I have been waiting for! Two Canadians and London’s fashion sweetheart are showing today: Mark Fast, Erdem & Christopher Kane – I can’t wait!!
Throwing open the curtains in my bedroom I basque in the morning sunshine streaming through my window. What luck we’ve had for LFW this season! Constant sunshine and mild temperatures – it’s a bloody London Fashion Week miracle! I turn to my closet and kick my stockings aside, with weather like this I’m going bare-legged, baby! I’ve got a confirmed spot on the guest list for Christopher Kane’s SS11 show and in an ode to the designer I pull out my Christopher Kane for Topshop mini skirt. Sadly, true House of Kane is still out of this gal’s price range so for now one must stick to his high-street collaborations — and thank God for those! A vintage white blouse, nude looped knit cardigan from Asos and a Topshop necklace complete my outfit. I slip into my gum-soled black heels, grab my Marc bag, throw on my Luella sunglasses and I’m out the door. Read about Grace’s Day Four picks after the jump!

Feeling slightly better than the day before I decide it’s time to get myself out of bed, into those heels and back out to hit the shows of Day Three at London Fashion Week. With my new vintage leather skirt in mind, I leap to my closet excitedly to begin putting my outfit together. It’s black, A-line, to the knee and an autumn/winter 10 essential – score! I pair it with a silk leopard print blouse from Zara, Banana Republic merino wool cardigan, my trusty nude patent leather Marc By Marc Jacobs bag and a pair of staggeringly high hiking boot-inspired heels by Bamboo. Within half an hour I’m ready and out the door, racing to reach the tube. Hopping out at Holborn station I head over to Vauxhall Fashion Scout where I meet up with my friend Charlene to check out the new collections as a duo. Minutes after meeting up we are approached by the fashionable pair behind the website Style By Queens, who ask to take a video diary of our outfits. Equally impressed with their outfit choices, we both ask if we can snap them for our LFW blog entries.The four of us are all sporting a mix of designer and high-street gear; proving that you don’t have to spend a fortune on every piece of clothing in order to look stylish — it’s all about how you put it together!
Flower-power at Topshop Unique

Hmph, it’s Day Two of London Fashion Week and that lingering sore throat of mine has finally caught up with me and I’m forced to stay home in bed. Perhaps staying out a bit too late at the Braganza party after a long day of shows is what finally did me in? At least I can now catch up on some rest, snuggle up in bed and stay updated on the day’s events via Twitter and Style.com. What on earth would a girl do without these two wonderful websites!?
So what are we seeing for SS11 so far? I’m seeing PRINTS! Whether it be in bright pastels or muted colours, prints and metallics dominated the Day Two runways. I absolutely loved the flower-power meets 70s glam goddesses that were sent down the runway at Topshop Unique. I can already see the flowing, printed chiffon maxis with thigh-high slits being a hit amongst glam party girls and fashion festival goers alike next year. More Day Two trends after the jump!
