lengthways



excuses, excuses. but honestly, i have one, big, initialism-shaped excuse for being completely absent on the blogosphere recently: LFW. that's right, when london fashion week rolls into town, even getting my laundry done becomes second fiddle, so if clean clothes weren't top of my agenda, you can guess where blogging was. i spent fashion week working for grazia, covering shows and parties for them (all of which you can read on grazia daily). highlights included the vivienne westwood show - the lady herself closed the show, unfurling a banner reading CLIMATE REVOLUTION in the middle of the foreign office, and her dinner afterwards, and the incredibly celeb-spotting front row at moschino. i did a classic daniela thing of not realising how close fashion week was until a few days before it started, so had to do some last-minute scrabbling for clothes. this fantastic skirt is courtesy of ASOS - i never usually wear knee-length - because i'm so little, i worry it'll make me look stumpy - but this i really liked. i felt uber-businesslike - i was just a latte and iPhone in hand a way from running the place. a huge, massive shout-out needs to go the inimitable abimarvel - if you've not heard about the apartment yet, it was an incredible retreat for bloggers during LFW to eat delicious food (wagamama and aubaine sponsored it!), get their hair and make up done between shows, work on the computers and generally unwind. it was utterly blissful - we're all going to work for abi one day, so get on her good side now. thank you to the wonderful dina for snapping these for me!

You look fantastic! Not many people can pull off the cropped top look but you certainly can. Love that printed skirt too.

Sounds like you had an amazing time!

The skirt is gorgeous & I love how you styled it with a simple cropped top! You do not look stumpy at all, you look amazing. The lighting is so perfect in these shots too. Sounds like you had a fun if hectic week! The Apartment sounds like it was a huge success from everything I've heard so far too. Gutted I had to miss it all this season, but I'm definitely not going to miss it in February! :)

oh you don't look "stumpy" at all! in fact you rock the look! I have a similar-ly patterned skirt from H&M. But I know I wont be able to carry the cropped top like you do!
