FASHION | A BEAUTIFUL STRUGGLE WITH SPARKLY TRAINERS FEATURING SUPERDRY AND EPHRAIM YEBOAH

Remember a few posts ago, I talked about the Ethologie show and how I am doing a collaboration with the designer??? Do you have no idea what I am talking about? Then click here, and catch up because it was a good post. Now, I wouldn't be a very good blogger, if I didn't show you my outfit that I wore to the show. I decided to go causal glam for the show, so I said bye bye to the dresses and heels and hello to my sparkly wedged trainers from Superdry( that I wore here) and my new sweater from Ephraim Yeboah.

The thing I find with London Fashion Week, is that you get two types of people. The people who really dress for themselves, and love showcasing their personal style. Then there are the people who dress over the top, just so they can get papped. Everyone is entitled to do what they want, but I have always been in the camp of dressing for myself, and expressing who I am. I think it comes with being in the industry for nearly 5 years, or maybe it comes down to my down to earth personality. But, I don't think you should put out, for people if it's not really you, you know? With all that being said, and with no  intentional shade being thrown, I chose this outfit because it is the essence of me.  I like to think of myself as a bit of a rebel, I always like to push the boundaries. I do things differently, I am always think creatively and my emotions guide 80% of my decisions. So suffice to say, this outfit and most of my outfit choices for this blog and in real life are hardly planned. I have honed my skill over the years to know what looks good together quite quickly.

I had been dying to wear my beautiful struggle sweater that Ephraim sent to me. I love graphic art sweaters and t-shirts, so I wanted to do this outfit justice. It made sense to pair the jumper with my trusty leather skirt that has been a staple on LWIG for the last few years. Then I finished the outfit with my loveable backpack and Superdry glittery sneakers. I can't tell you how good it felt to throw away the heels, and the dresses and chill for my last day at fashion week. I didn't want to go over the top, as day 3 was super long for me, with visiting showrooms  and hanging out with my girl Julia (Juls in the pic) and my girl Anoushka,who is also collaborating with Ethologie.

I guess the whole point of this post, is to emphasize that it is ok to be you. To dress for yourself and don't be afraid to push the boundaries if it feels right. I'd rather live a life with regrets, rather than a life of what ifs.
