London Fashion Week sneaks up on me every season! I’m usually putting the finishing touches on my fashion faves from the Big Apple and BOOM; it’s already day three in London! Don’t know how the fashion world does it but they do a damn good job at it! London brings the high society out for a play date to show off their new frocks on the runway.
As with New York Fashion Week, continue to keep an eye on this post for your updated links to my faves.
Yes, it’s still “fashion week” and yes, the world of fashion is STILL jet setting across the globe!
What you may not know is this; while the Brits and the fashion obsessed natives traveled to London, there was also a fashion week(end) dedicated for plus size women! The British Plus Size Fashion Weekend (or BPSFW for short) took place last weekend (February 14 & 15) during the first three days during London Fashion Week. This year marks the second anniversary for such a great event!
You bet yours truly is going to try to make it next year! I should probably start saving now for a London weekend getaway! There is nothing better than seeing all these gorgeous curvaceous bods strut down the runway!

A runway show from Burberry never ceases to amaze me. Seriously, for the few years, I’ve watched each show in awe! How can a person like and want every single thing that comes down the runway?! Except for maybe three things, I could honestly purchase two of everything…if I had the money to do so of course. Pity.
While we’re on the subject of money, here are a few of the famous front row faces of the show.
From left to right: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Freida Pinto, Kate Beckinsale, Tinie Tempah and Rita Ora.
The Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Fall & Winter show for 2013 was a collection that tugged at the heart strings. I mean that both literally and figuratively. The collection featured fabrics of gold and hearts while the song “Happy Together” (imagine me and you) played in the background. Oh yea, speaking of music…live band, singer Tom Odell, bass player AND choir played as the showed winded down.
15 minutes of love… Enjoy the show!
Grommets/eyelets, hearts, gold, leather, fringe and animal print! What’s NOT to like about this collection?! Ok, I may be a tad bit overzealous, that’s only because when I’m bored, I tend to doodle lots and lots of hearts! Sooo yea, that could be it! Let’s take a look at my favorite of favorites from the collection…
Taking a trip across the pond as fashion week(s) continues!
There’s just something about Daks that makes me want to walk around the city and hail cabs all day! Well, maybe, hop on one of those infamous red buses in London! The Fall/Winter 2013 collection looks so effortlessly city chic it’s sickening! I’m having a serious problem with these cropped trenches NOT being in my closet right now! Not to mention, that they don’t come in a size for my curves! Normally, I’m not too obsessed about clothes in my size because I always find a way or style that fits the look I’m going for perfectly! Plus, I’m a fashion slave…I love it all no matter the size. (photos courtesy of Getty Images)
Enough about me, let’s see the clothes!
Hmm…I’ve never been a floral print type of girl, til NOW!
Our lady of fashion has done it again. Shocked us all with her creativity and with the many ways she can think outside of the box. I don’t think that phrase has ever meant more than right now.
First, let’s enjoy the abstract wildness that is the make-up for the Red Label show.
What do you think?
In an interview for The Daily Mail UK, Westwood was asked about what she thought of her collection:
“I thought it was brilliant and I just loved the combination of the colors the tights, the clothes the shoes, the bags, the tailoring.I just wanted absolutely every single piece, which is very rare for me. I just loved this collection. I thought it was fabulous.”
Just as soon as New York Fashion Week ended, London Fashion Week started and now…Milan Fashion Week! Can you imagine the jet lag some of these people are feeling?! Sheesh! They’re probably use to it by now. Well, luckily for me and you…there’s this thing called the interwebs! As with Curves and Coffee’s NYFW, we’re going to attempt to flip through thousands of pics to find my faves! Let’s just get straight down to business…
If you know anything about me and I do mean any tiny little thing, you know I spent countless hours trying to find a certain bag earlier this year. I won’t even mention the name of said bag nor will I post a picture, well maybe I will post a pic.
Point is, THAT exact bag SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE! My name is seriously still sitting on some list in New York at the Burberry store. Clearly, I absolutely love this brand! Ok, back to the LFW…Burberry proved to me once again, why there’s such an infatuation with everything they produce. In case you just want to see my faves aka a cheat sheet for those who don’t want to look at the live show…here you go!
If you’re not flabbergasted like me (I’ve looked at the live show and the pics over and over again) then maybe I need medical attention lol! Just kidding! Is there anything here that can’t be loved? Ok, maybe the shiny trench coats for the finale were a tad bit Puff Daddy & Mase circa 1998 during the shiny suit era but these coats are FITTED! That’s gotta stand for something, right? Right.
Wanna know something, I love Burberry no matter what and a little birdie told me a rumor about Burberry………..stay glued to Morning Linkage tomorrow!
