I had a bit of a back-to-back schedule this LFW, so I needed to make sure I didn’t swan dive into the asphalt, which could have happened had I rolled up in stilettos. With the event now taking place at the Brewer Street Car Park for the second season, a whole host of designers chose to show around it and not in it, so running from place to place was in the cards. The same thing used to happen in Somerset House, but I found it to be more welcoming, partly because I didn’t have to save every photographer’s life due to incoming traffic. A snap of me, nor even any celebrity for that matter, is important enough to pay for it with your leg under a car. Yikes!

Coming back to my look, I decided to wear black top to bottom with a hint of daintiness brought by this awesome headband from Irresistible Me – you may remember I boasted about the brand in my Biba Blue post.

This outfit, believe it or not, also includes my admiration for Mariah Carey. Remember when she was riding trains in ball gowns? The lace skirt is actually a wonderful evening dress by Ever Pretty – a lovely collection of evening gowns at super accessible prices. I have my eye on a few other numbers from the site too, one of the frocks may morph into a very Khaleesi outfit in due time. Check them out, I am sure you will fall in love with an Ever Pretty dress or two.

But the show had to go on, on the runway and on the pavement. This LFW I was interviewed for Sky (airing soon!), snapped by a bunch of lovely people and just wholeheartedly enjoyed the shows. Until September.

London Fashion Week is all about having fun watching catwalk presentations. Lucky for many, one doesn’t necessarily need tickets to enjoy fashion shows – the vast majority of these spectacles are on the streets. It’s entertainment that money can’t buy. To many passersby I was one of them, an entertainer. The main attraction, the sideshow or the freak show.

To myself I was just being me.

Brooklyn Street Style: The No-Rules Guide to Fashion by Shawn Dahl and Anya Sacharow is not really a book about Brooklyn and its style icons. No. It is a book about you, the reader. It is about how you see the world and how you interpret style.

This paperback is a salad made of the most delicious stylish Brooklynites with a very cosmopolitan seasoning. You will see a variety of styles influenced by different countries and ethnic backgrounds starting with Kenya, India and ending with Poland and Russia as well as everything in-between.

One of my favourite quotes from Brooklyn Street Style is by Jenn Rogien, the costume designer of the popular HBO series, Girls:

It’s hard to describe Brooklyn style because as soon as you come up with a way of describing it, it’s moved to something else. It’s constantly evolving.

Much like the other book I reviewed, Paris Street Style: Shoes, this is an easy breezy read that is designed to inject positivity into your life. Brooklyn Street Style does it beautifully: The colours, the eccentricity, the down-to-earth, human approach to fashion – all of these aspects get the reader’s endorphin levels up.

Suddenly, style is not something only grand couturiers can dictate, it is something that you, yourself, can participate in the creation of, just like the inspiring icons in this book.  Think of Brooklyn Street Style as fashion caffeine. Within five minutes your pupils will widen, your heart will start beating faster as your mind puts together a few new looks to try out this week.

This is why Brooklyn Street Style is about you, the reader. It’s about the outfit you’ll wear after you put this book down. It’s about how you’re going to feel wearing it. And most importantly, it’s about you being happy in your own skin.

A huge thank you to Abrams & Chronicle Books for my copy. You can get one here.

Designers want me to dress like Spring, in billowing things. I don’t feel like Spring. I feel like a warm red Autumn.
Marilyn Monroe

I was simply obsessed with the idea of wearing sneakers with a floaty silk dress. Because I am a true doer, I converted my fantasy into reality this LFW and rolled up in a demi couture gown by Omar Mansoor and my ombre red to burgundy Nikes.

I am yet to meet a fashion lover who isn’t partial to dresses which synchronise and dance with the wind. It doesn’t matter if you are shooting from the latest Nikon DSLR or from an old iPhone, they always look very magazine editorial-y. Of course, just an evening gown wouldn’t do, I needed an unexpected punch and the sneakers worked perfectly.

I wasn’t the only one who thought the outfit worked. I was lucky enough to get papped and end up being the street style cover girl on Yahoo Lifestyle. More in my press section.

I love a good coffee table book. Who doesn’t. But what I love more is a good coffee table book where I am featured. What’s more, my lovely fellow bloggers Ambarina, Annette & Sabby are also in this awesome street style book. Look out for pages 21, 119, 61, 184 – we’re there!

Thanks to the ever so talented Joe Paul for featuring me. This inspiring coffee table book is going to be on sale in a book shop near you very very soon.
