8:45 AM It’s the primary day of London Fashion Week, and I’ve woken up past due. Fortunately, I’m staycationing for the subsequent four nights in central five megastar hotel The May Fair… so skip the first show and spend the morning hoovering croissants and making plans outfits. I’m staying inside the Schiaparelli Suite, and the Carrie Bradshaw closet is nicely really worth the more airtime.
Nine:15 AM Friend and fellow blogger Nicole Ballardini joins me for breakfast, she brings four luggage of press-mortgage garments for us to attempt on and I convey out the stitching kit while the zip on a sample dress bust. We post our faves to install tales and allow the audience majority to vote to decide our first appearance – matching tailored layers.
I have a chauffeur pushed Mercedes-Benz G-Class for the week and Jon our driving force calls and confirms he’s scored a niche directly outside the hotel. We invite him up for croissants and a 2nd opinion at the tailoring.
10:00 AM Eventually we depart the lodge revved up from Nespresso. Climbing into the G-Wag Jon explains he’s been briefed by using final season’s chauffeur Nick and has crammed the car seats with wine-gums and Diet Coke. Jon is honestly correct people.
10:30 AM We ask Jon to force us to Bond Street so we can shoot our clothes for Instagram. After that, we head to Annabel’s where I’m attending a lunch for Susie Lau’s new shoe series. I’m early so head immediately to the toilet and take a healthy quantity of selfies in their infamously ostentatious ladies room.
12:45 AM Last to leave the lunch I get stuck using the paps outdoor Annabel’s who truly mistake me for someone else and I don’t have the coronary heart to correct them. Jon’s waiting outdoor and climbs out to usher me to protection. We snort about it while he’s using me back to The May Fair and I update my fans on testimonies about the mishap.
1:00 PM Lunch is a short chunk returned on the inn and chauffeur Jon and Nicole be part of me for tapas and gossip. Nicole and I have rosé and determine to appoint that as our tipple for the week.
2:00 PM After lunch blogger Bonnie Rakhit returns from a show and consents to shoot with us and put on pieces from my series with IN THE STYLE … the three people coordinate in matching porcelain prints and blues after which head out to shoot our second appearance.
2:15 PM Jon drives us to Mount Street for the shoot so that I can pop into Roland Mouret for a fitting earlier than the show on Sunday. The pieces Roland has selected are lovely, but the skirt doesn’t in shape, and subsequently, I leave with extensive leg pants and a distinctive appearance.
I rejoin the women, and we use the G-Wag as a prop for our shoot mountain climbing on the roof which attracts pretty a crowd. Driver Jon films it and I put up it to my Insta testimonies – the reaction is reasonably hysterical however after flicking through the camera reel all of us agree it becomes well worth the embarrassment.
4.00 PM I depart the women in Mayfair, and Jon whisks me to a presentation before I head lower back to the inn for beverages with a pr buddy.
6:00 PM Nicole and I meet at Daniel Galvin for a blow dry before the night events, we slightly chat as we’re both so focussed on paintings… I must put up an Instagram at 6:30 and want to interact before and after with my target market.
7:00 PM Mr. Luxe arrives to fulfill us at the salon, and then all of us climb into the G Wag and head out for an early supper at Mews of Mayfair earlier than my night event. I convince our motive force, Jon, to enroll in us and we bond over burger and fries.
Eight: forty-five PM Back at the motel, I change into a black tuxedo and Louboutins, and Mr. Luxe accompanies me to a Magazine event hosted by way of a great buddy. We stay ’til midnight and then make our excuses and head returned to the lodge.
I’m shattered and nevertheless want to faux tan and plan tomorrow’s outfit earlier than we do it all once more.
