LFW Outfit day 4: Organza Mac coat | How I style the see-through trend?

London fashion week day 4 was incredibly rainy, good old British weather raising its ugly head. So what does Katy do, she wears the most ridiculous material for rain. Organza, It wasn't warm, it wasn't practical and probably an awful idea. But do you know what I felt like an ethereal princess, I'm not entirely sure why an opaque purple organza made me feel so damn good but it did. This might be one of my most stand out pieces ever seen on my blog, its simple and elegant yet a stunner. 

 The see-through trend has been everywhere recently in the form of plastic extensively. I have to admit I'm not a big fan of the whole plastic coat look, it's been done before again and again and it just tends to look cheap and unflattering.  I think this material is the best alternative, to still keep on trend but achieve a more classy visage

 LFW Day 3 Outfit 

Yes! I am finally at fashion week, I missed the first two days but I am finally here and I must say I've seen some wonderful looks strutting around West London. Just from walking to my hotel I had a dreamy sense of lust for coats and dresses I've seen. Colour, colour and colour. I love it and all the colours of the rainbow have surrounded me for the last 13 hours. SO here I bring you my take on day 3!   Block colours. I'm wearing a super comfortable slouchy 80's style cardigan from ASOS which is the cosiest thing and I'm glad I had this item just for warmth. The purple high neck dress from Dark pink and thigh high boots that actually fit wonderfully and stick to my leg (I have been looking for that for what seems like forever) from Zara.

The Valentines Edit 

Valentine's day is fast approaching in less than a week actually now and I'm sure the funnel of Red and pink content will fill your feed's. Some, really hate the over-commercialisation of valentines or Christmas, others will just get sick and tired of seeing a blogger prance across a road with a heart shaped bag. I'm completely the same, in fact, although being a blogger myself I 100% see the cliches. I'd like to say I keep well away but that just isn't true. But the fact is I do get tired, but I really do like holiday content. I'm currently following over 300 accounts on Instagram whittling down a handful of friends most are fashion accounts. Do NOT get me started on the Instagram algorithm (come on Instagram what are you doing?) It's like hashtags do not even work anymore and I do not want to see three brand posts on the top of my feed. Mini rant over, I love to see holiday content because although people copy each other and so on. Creativity is out there and even though my post or spin might not be original. I had a fun time shooting it and I love celebrating a holiday despite it being cheesy or in your face.  So here I am flaunting one hell of a red poofy dress, for an evening or occasion look not just for valentines but whenever you want to be a powerful woman in red. (Just maybe not down the office in this one you know) 
This dress is from ASOS Premium and is in fact in the sale! I'm not sure if I'm just stupid but I had to look at the model to see how this dress tied as I completely got it wrong the first two attempts. The open back is a new one for me and I like how it isn't a heavy dress it's rather light.

The dress is made out of lightweight tulle and a fine netting above. It reminds me of a 50's prom dress in a way and is certainly extravagant for a price tag now under £30. The dress is actually fast selling out as well, I myself am guilty of buying something I wouldn't usually wear in the ASOS sale.  Honestly, this dress is one, but I even though it's not one I can wear every day, I really like knowing I have a dress like this in my wardrobe. 
I talked about what makeup I use for every day over on Instagram the other day, the post is here. Today I have those two products but I am also using the Estee Lauder Pure colour envy lipstick. As well as the Urban Decay Naked palette. The Two brown ones and the grey. (NO I'm no makeup blogger I just know the looks of the colours).

         In Bloom | SS18 

Spring is upon us and the end of season sales have been in full swing.. which means, of course, I have gone a little bit crazy buying anything vaguely old and new season. I swear every time there's a sale I gravitate to the new in-page first. The first of many items you will see me strutting on the blog in the next couple of weeks is this lovely light pastel floral blouse and yes it was and still is on the sale... so be quick.
Every year fashion trends come and go. but every spring florals never leave in the words of Miranda (Meryl Streep) in Devil Wears Prada 'Florals for spring, Groundbreaking'. It certainly is unsurprising but yet here I am on the bandwagon.  The pleather skirt isn't new but a nice addition to transition from one season to the next. Despite its deep burgundy colour, I generally use it in summer as a dark yet stand out item.
