Ziad Ghanem

Unfortunately I didn’t get the best photographs, the majority of them are of Made In Chelsea’s Mark Francis and Victoria’s heads as they were sat right in front of me. It’s quite funny actually, they arrived late and there were no seats for them! Until someone didn’t show up who was supposed to be sat front row they nabbed it, both of them on one seat. Quite funny actually.
I was so lucky to be invited to the Ziad Ghanem show, I went last year (my first fashion show) and absolutely loved it and he is quickly becoming one of my favourite designers. His work is so creative and I love how theatrical the shows are. He also uses a variety of models which is really refreshing, from different races to different sizes. How it should be.
The collection was really beautiful, so annoying that I couldn’t get many good quality photographs… I’m supposed to be a photography student as well! Tut tut my teacher would not be proud.
I got invited to his show as my best friends uncle is a good friend of his so we got tickets, after we went for some super yummy sushi at a restaurant called Satsuma in Soho which was amazing, definitely recommend it if your a sushi fanatic like me!

LFW Day 5: Underdressed

I was very unprepared for day 5 of fashion week. I started outfit planning the day before and had NO idea what to wear. I wanted to be warm and still look nice and ALL my clothes were in the wash… Why are all your clothes always in the wash when you need them most?! This outfit is pretty boring and all black is just so funeral like, I have really gone off it and all black outfits in general.  So I arrived at Somerset House surrounded by gorgeous fashionable people and I began to feel very underdressed and felt a bit judged! I got my makeup done at mac and the lady gave me a gorgeous greeny black smokey eye which was done so amazingly however I soon found out I don’t exactly suit dark eye make up, still I was very grateful the the lovely makeup she did for me and even more grateful for the goody bag which included 2 powder pigments (I gave one to my bezzie), a gorgeous coral lipstick that I have been lusting after for ages called Vegas Volt and also a mascara which I’m not that fond of, so I gave it to my mum. Next post will be on the Ziad Ghanem show that I attended after my makeover so keep ya eyes out xxx

Beanie Baby

Fashion Week aside, here’s what I wore about a week ago to college. I am so in love with this fluffy jumper from topshop, I find it very hard not to wear it everyday. On tuesday I went back into London for my second take at LFW, I arrived at somerset house to have my make up done my MAC which was amazing and I also got a bag full of goodies (for free!! ee) but the vibe around the venue felt very different. Friday was insane and was the most amazing experience however on tuesday I felt a lot of people were fighting for attention and pushing and shoving to get street snapped. It all just seemed quite negative and it felt like it had lost its touch which was really sad. Anyway after getting my makeup done I went to Ziad Ghenems show which was amazing (post soon to follow) and then went for sushi.  I'm now I’m sitting in bed at 2pm knackered, it feels like I haven't really sat down the whole half term.

LFW Day 1: Street Style

STREETSTYLE 1LFW DAY 1 040STREETSTYLE3LFW DAY 1 020STREETSTYLE 2

The street style on friday was amazing, as the first day of fashion week a lot of people went all out. You may recognise a few people, Kavita from she wears fashion who looked absolutely gorgeous, Andy from style scrapbook who was so lovely, photo to follow when I do a bloggers special post, also I spent the majority of the day with the super stylish helena who is in the middle at the top! A man dressed up as Karl Lagerfeld described her as a funky zebra which made my day.
What do you think of the streetstyle snaps I took?
I wanted to take more of people but I was a bit too shy to ask people! I’m going up to LFW again tomorrow so will try to take some more for sure.
I got street snapped quite a few times which was so cool, I felt so famous! I went out to grab some lunch with shope and got bombarded by cameras on the street and got so many funny looks from passers by, but its possibly the best feeling being snapped as you know you have done well with putting your outfit together! Let me know if you see me on any blogs/websites etc as I didn’t give anyone my blog or anything, silly me… I need to get cards done or something. I’m so unprofessional.

LFW Day 1: What I Wore

5412
(Cape: Vintage from a car boot, Jeans: cheap monday. boots: schuh, clutch: vintage, sunnies: h&m)

I'm going to do a series of LFW posts as I have SO much to blog! From the lovely amazing bloggers I met to some amazing street style. I was so stuck on what to wear to LFW as I wanted to stand out and show my personal style. When people asked me where my cape was from I was so tempted to go ‘it’s dolce and gabana darling’ but I can’t lie very well and instead I blurted out ‘it was £2 from a car boot’ so stylish Tiger. It was so much fun overall however I was so so so excited for the Zoe Jordan show I was invited to and had to get the early train (very expensive train ticket!!>!?!!) and I started queuing up all excited and buzzing for the show, I got in and was led to a little room and the show was on a friking screen… Can you imaging my disappointment? For some reason there wasn’t enough space for all of us so we had to experience the show on a screen. I was fuming. Never been so disappointed in my life.

Anyhoo I had the most amazing day, I met the lovely shore and shope from Londons Closet which was so cool as I am probably their biggest fan, I love their blog so much! If you havent checked them out already, I strongly advice you too, I get so much inspiration from their blog. I also met the ever so stylish Helena who looked amazing in her head to toe Nasty Gal ensemble.
More LFW stuff coming in next post so keep your eyezz out

Sooooooooo guess where I’m off to tomorrow? Gwarrrn take a guess. No?
I'm off to London Fashion Week!!!!!!!!!!!!!! eeeeeeeee so so excited. Can’t believe I even managed to get an invite for a show. I’m only seeing one show but I’m going to hang around and do some street style, meet up with some bloggers and then meet a friend after. I’m a little nervous and I don’t know what to expect and choosing the right outfit is so hard! I think you have to look quite effortless but look amazing at the same time, I’m sure you guys know this already, but its not the most easiest of things.
Anyhoo I’m bringing my camera along to do some streetstyle and also I’m thinking of vlogging it, what do you guys think? I’ve been wanted to set up a youtube channel for ages now but been to scared to, I think easing myself in with a vlog would be a good way in. Let me know if you would like to see it! Are any of you guys going to LFW? Let me know if you are! Would love to meet some of you.

PS HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, I LOVE YOU ALL <3

Roar

(Top: Mens Zara (sold out now), disco pants: American Apparel, Boots: Schuh, Jumper/Cardi/Fur thing: Topshop)

This cardigan is probably my most worn item in my wardrobe, I find it very hard not to wear it everyday, its really warm and I absolutely adore the fur panelling. I got it for £25 in topshop last year on a deal and ah I’m still so so in love with it.
I bought this top the other day from the zara sale in the mens department and I think its so cool, its like a ‘trippy tiger’, it also has low cut arm holes which I looove.  I have become obsessed with anything and everything with tigers on it. My recent tiger obsession is this top from topshop. If your ever out and see anything tiger related feel free to tweet me about it (@ttigerlilly) as I want my collection to get even bigger and I would love to see what you find! Could be a tiger hunt!
Who else is fed up with this weather? Seriously counting down the days till summer, I hate winter so much. It needs to heat up. Pronto.

So Tropical

I know its about –3 degrees outside and not exactly summer but I found this post the other day that I completely forgot to publish. So. Tanned. Take me back! This was my fave outfit during summer. I love love love hawaiian print and this top was about 30p from a car boot sale.
Sorry for the unseasonal post but hopefully it will get y’all dreaming of summer. Promise next post will be something warm enough to actually wear in January in England.
Also a girl on instagram just asked if I could do a daily make up routine post, would you guys like to see that? I hardly show my face in detail on here ahaha so would be a bit weird, but let me know if you would like to see that.
Love you guys and hope you are all well xxx
