Leather Jacket & grey top – Day Birger et Mikkelsen, Trousers - ASOS, Shoes – Topshop, Bag – Warehouse, Rings - Daisy London, White Top – Diana Orving; Thank you Jen for the outfit snaps!

Never in the history of fashion (or mankind in fact, during PG hours at least) has ‘I’m so wet’ been used so loosely as today. You could hear It’s not London if there’s no rain being tossed around the courtyard matter-of-factly, but hi, I’ve been living in London for the past 5 years and I can tell you it rarely rains like this. It’s like all the bottled up pissin’ rainin finally blew up in the form of a bucket dump, subjecting us of all to a very bad case of sky PMS. So as streetstyle I logged a record-breaking number of photos of hunched miserable looking folk (I’m thinking of JAK & ILL) so we just ended up chain-lattéing under the Fernandez & Wells café parasol and debated on whether 6 inch heels and hobbling is truly a necessity to a LFW outfit.

On a separate note, Jen and I noticed the Union Jack at the top of Somerset House is black and white?!

  9. Your new hair + that red lipstick= femme fatale (the Annie Hall trousers, asymmetric shirt and leather jacket don’t hurt either). It’s an amazing combination! How did you get your hair to wave quite so perfectly? Anyway, a lovely post as per usual!

  24. London sounds like Sydney at the moment. Every time we dare to think glorious summer has arrived, the skies break and it’s rain again. Liking your new bob – it’s the kind of style I secretly wish I could have but know I never could.

  32. your hair! little shock at first, but then: it suits you so well! and for some reason it makes you look really tall (hm, maybe you ARE really tall?). seriously, you look fantastic – the boyish outfit and your (i’d say) 1920s inspired hairdo – beautiful!

  34. hahahahahahahaha^^ cracking introduction =p
    yes I would wear something comfortable and anti-slip if I were in London. it does rain a lot =/ well I hope the rain didn’t ruin the day too much :( at least there were still some events on show right? I like how you wear a leather jacket and those tan pants through the day. they seem super comfy and well, “anti-slip” ahaha^^

    let’s just wish it doesn’t rain as angrily and fumingly in London as today .. =p all the best wishes from Melbourne, Shini

  79. The way you’ve styled your hair here looks super flattering– kind of reminiscent of the twenties but kept youthful with the play on proportions in your outfit. I like the simplicity of it all! I hope it does rain this much for the rest of LFW! xx

  93. Wow, your haircut is so sultry and amazing. It completely changes your look and suddenly a sultry siren emerges. I’ve been absentee from the blogosphere, but am floored by your new look.

    The story about the geek bringing you flowers each day for 6 years made my eyes water. Thank you for sharing that and the confetti hearts.

  95. I am obsessed with the way you played with proportions! I would not have thought to pair those pieces (jacket/shirt/trousers) together, but the silhouette is both interesting and flattering.
