London Fashion Weekend...the count down begins...

Sorry for the delay in posting lately, I've just got back to work after a little two week break and have struggled to find time to write...but here I am once again and I need your help!

Today sees the start of London Fashion Week (LFW), a hugely exciting time in the fashion calendar where we learn about what will be on trend for Spring/Summer ' the beginning of Autumn/Winter '13.  I love that fashion is so forward thinking, even if it means that from behind my faux fur coat, I'll be eyeing up summery shorts for the new season!  This year however poses a different dilemma.  I normally keep an eye on the trends from the comfort of my own home, Ipad in lap and a mug of hot chocolate by my side...secretly wishing that I was on the frow at Chanel and Vivienne Westwood.  But this year, my VBF and I are going to London Fashion Weekend...eeeeeeeek!!!  And my dilemma is this...what shall I wear for such an occasion?

For those of you that don't know the difference, London Fashion Week is invite only, whereas London Fashion Weekend is the consumer's chance to visit Somerset House, watch a few shows and eye up the new trends.  I dream of one day going to the actual week, but for now the weekend will do just fine!  But yes, that age old problem of what to wear...hmmm! So obviously I want to look on trend...I don't want to be unfashionable at a fashion event that's for sure.  But this time there are many other things to consider.  The weather, will it rain? Will it be warm and sunny?  The way the weather has been lately there is just no way to tell!! Will I be comfortable?  We are going down to London and back all in the same this too is something to take into account! ARRRRRGGGHHHH!!

So I'm thinking maybe a cute dress, tights, leather jacket, pumps combo at the moment...but I haven't even thought about colours!! I fancy some sort of tartan attire, very current, but haven't yet seen anything that has caught my eye (although as expected I've seen plenty handbags that would look great!!).  And I am beyond desparate for a hair hairstyle is something else to consider (if it rains, my hair will be so huge the people behind me at the catwalk show won't be able to see!!!).

So today,  I start my quest for a new outfit for the day...I'll let you know how it goes!

I hope you all enjoy LFW wherever you are watching it...let me know what your favourite trends are this season :)

Oooh and if you have any outfit ideas for me...please feel free to comment my lovelies :)
