cream of the crop
so little time, so many polka dots

London Fashion Week fw09

Onto London Fashion Week, woo finally! Everything is too original, it's hard to find any similarities between collections so I just saved the little deets that I liked. It's such a shame that any sign of autumn is so many months away, the spring shows are still pretty exciting though.


I possibly have creeper fever, which is the kind of shoe that might be the total opposite to anything I own but the likes of Miss Woo (who shares an Ashley Stymest love, nice taste!) and Lulu and now Susie just look so great in their pairs, I don't know what I'd wear them with though... I'm still not part of the whole bandage dress during the day club, I don't look laid back enough! But aren't these the best hammer pants?


I'd love to experiment with something a bit more deconstructed, unexpected shapes and crazy cut outs. I remember when it was cool to wear dresses over jeans, circa 2003. How about long skirts over cropped trousers? Also it seems all the cheapie shops are making AA u-neck style dresses which have sooo much potential for zipper and cut out and stud DIYs.


For about three seasons I've been wanting sheer trousers but still haven't come anywhere near finding or even making some. I'm thinking maybe some sheer leggings first that are slightly rouched, so not necessarily tights but not hugely baggy.


These leopard print booties simply just caught my eye! Faaabulous.


This reminds me of Zac Posen a few seasons ago with the minnie mouse ears and red lips, and I do like a good hair do! I'm thinking this is a signal to bring back victory rolls.


I said in the New York post, I love black and white together in a non-mod way. I'm looking for a white babydoll dress to wear with black opaques!


I love these cute Icelandic vibes, I got a white furry hat that I didn't get chance to wear before it started to get warmer so I'm thinking baby florals with white tights and mittens.


A lot of people said they didn't like the TS collection much, that it was too nu rave, but I liked it a lot! It's not so much my style but I liked the execution with the plaited hair and lace up boots with the coloured laces. A huge neon scarf would be cool and I'm all for more jumpsuits. I've never really looked at them before but I'm seriously into prints at the moment and omg flying saucer prints?!?! Not only so relevant but also super cool. Metallic were all over the catwalks so shiny leggings can keep coming for another season.


I loved the hair at Vivienne Westwood Red Label, a chic side ponytail is the way to go! I also have a now not so secret desire for tartan trousers after seeing a girl who I think was in the year above me wearing some really low slung, tight but rouched up, tartan trousers with a studded belt.


H&M have reduced all their long skirts in the sale which I might go and hmmm over tomorrow as in winter surely they will be great with all these crop tops from the summer? Speaking of crop tops (again), I just splurged on a polka dot Moschino one from eBay and officially aren't allowed to buy any more!


How amazing is this corset? Vintage lace ones are pretty cheap on eBay and it might be easy to do a naughty DIY with some gold ribbon to get this effect?


Mmm Luella, at first I was like nooo, what? But once I watched the video it all made more sense. Utility and military is fine once you break it down to the hook and eye fastenings, zips, long gloves and pinafores. Plus there's been glittery, shimmery fabrics in other collections too and as always, tights are the best way to try a trend. I like these sheer stripes too!


More lush prints, but my favourites are the floral boots. Ankles boots are all over the place, and floral boots with floral dresses sounds great, I love the full length trousers and clashing prints. hem lines are coming down! Empire waists are looking good too.


These mineral/crystal prints are insane, it might be a challenge to the high street to come up with great prints on cheaper fabrics as they are best full length!


Love the trousers, love the lace and love the shoulders! See metallics everywhere, and with lace they look fab, the silver is sort of futuristic/sci-fi too.


Ah yes here's the shimmery fabrics! I like the purple, but sometimes glittery tights look good in the packet and then when you put them on it's like 'woooah glitter!'.

I'm not a HoH fan particularly (mainly because I'm not especially an Agyness fan) but something appeals with this collection that looks like paint colour charts, I think it's the tights! Or that I'm less wary of colour nowadays! God, I am a slave to consumerism!
