At London Fashion week the people trying to get into the shows become a spectacle, even the cobbled polluted streets become a catwalk. Who can wear the most attention - seeking outfit? But where does it cross the line from being fashion or flashy? Loafers covered in diamonds wore by a man at the front row were eye catching but did I think they were a trend? I am not so sure.. Does the person wearing the outfit dictate the trend? Possibly so. Perhaps if Olivia Palermo or Alexa Chung were wearing the diamante loafers I would feel differently. I would be ordering a pair or at least looking for the high street copy. I know that maybe there a some things that I can never pull off such as ballet pumps or leggings or fur coats (and I mean dressed with anything). As much as I want to cry at failing to wear these longstanding trends I embrace my love of others that seem to flatter my shape and caress my curves such as boots, pencil skirts (forever friend) blouses and the trench. I remember longing for a beige burberry trench from camden market. It was the only thing I ever wanted and before that the only thing I ever wanted were LA Gear high tops with pink and black sparkly laces. The latter clearly indicating my ability to bling from a young age. I look back at my life in clothes but I am quite certain I will never be appealing in diamond covered loafers. Leave that to the front row.
