OK, this post is entirely about the humblebrag, and I won’t even try and hide it. As you read this post, I am… At London Fashion Weekend, a London Fashion Week event sponsored by Vodafone at Somerset House in London. You can follow all the excitement along with me on Instagram (@Amanda_Effie)
I’m excited about this event for several reasons: because I’m attending with my work bestie Anna, the LFW has a tradition of street style cool that the Fashion Weekend lets you purchase through pop-up shops and because I’ve always wanted to attend a Fashion Week festivity.
I had several minor freak-outs while packing because, well, I don’t attend fashion shows on an everyday basis. I wanted to look stylish, cool, but not like I was trying too hard. After consulting the article I wrote a few months ago on how to outdress a fashionista and a frenzied set of text conversations with Christine- I realized I had this in the bag.
I own enough classic pieces (aka the “not cool”) that I can pull off street style. And, apparently, I talk about my wardrobe enough that my friends can help me select what to wear from afar. So follow my Fashion Week adventures on Instagram, but here is the sneak peek at what I am actually wearing to Fashion Week.
I will look forward to sharing all the details (and pictures!) in coming weeks. Cheers from LFW!
