Outfit Post: London Fashion Week Trial Run

For a meeting in Shorditch on Thursday afternoon I decided to trial run one of my possible outfits for London Fashion Week, but my meeting got cancelled just as I was about to get on the tube, so I was all dressed up with nowhere to go! Luckily, the effort of putting together and outfit and putting on my makeup (I even went to the effort of wearing foundation!) as an alternative to my usual casual light approach I mooch around uni in was not put to waste - at least I've got an outfit post out of it!
Jewelled Necklace: Hobbs, Jacket: H&M, Dress: Zara, Heels: Pedro Miralles c/o Spartoo 

These heels from Spanish brand I had not before heard of, Pedro Miralles, is one of the two pairs I was given by the team at Spartoo the shoe site for London Fashion Week. I like these, but I can't wait to show you the other pair I got - they are so special, and I have fallen totally in love with them!

The nail polish is the Orly shade a lot of people got in the Valentines Glossybox, called 'Ruby'. I'd never tried an Orly polish before, and while I have only been wearing it for 24 hours so can't really comment on how long it lasts, I'm really impressed by the formula as far as application is concerned. 
Daniela running through the photos I took for her outfit post. We're happy we've found a nice secluded bit of campus to take photos with great light and back drops, so we can do it in peace without too many people staring at us! 

Have you decided what you will be wearing to fashion week yet? Or, if your city has already had your fashion week, or you're in New York and you're right in the middle, I'd love it if you'd link me to some of your outfit posts so I can see what you've been wearing!
