After deciding to spend the entire day parading around in a skirt, the weather decided to hang out at roughly 8°C since I left the house today. Turns out, it was a lucky misfortune. What better opportunity/excuse could there be to buy some floral-print trousers?
(Pictured: MTV print tee, H&M cigarette pants, and handmade heels. Though I kind of want to add these and these to my collection, now…)
P.S. Excuse the office/bomb site.
Versace for H&M
This week, the Versace x H&M
lookbook was finally released. Thankfully, it did not disappoint in any way! The 50-piece collection
, skirts, leggings
, scarves, handbags, shoes, belts, menswear
, jewelry, and even homeware. Impressively, many of the prints, products and palettes seem to have been drawn almost straight from the archives
. Value for money, in my eyes!
That said, it isn’t going to translate as ‘value‘ if we go out and buy everything at once (…note to self). Above, I have compiled some of my favourite pieces that I believe will work both alltogether and also add something special to many outfits when separated. Characteristic Versace: on the cheap (I can’t wait)!
Elite model and Lela London favourite, Bambi Northwood Blyth, signed on to be the face of Free People‘s Pre-Fall 2011 lookbook and looks as bushy-browed and beautiful as ever. Note: the toy Bambi.
Also, I definitely prefer Free People’s creepers to Prada’s. This is a peculiar designer stance. You’ll still never catch me wearing them*.

Marketing Genius of Express Bags
Fashion retailer Express
have a very, very bon
marketing department. For the past few seasons they have been propelling the trend of public fashion shows
– in New York, Miami and Las Vegas – and are now taking things a step further.
They are casting you as a model. This coming Saturday (the 23rd of July), Express are inviting anyone who can get to Times Square (NYC) between the hours of 9-6 to walk on their public runway. No height, weight, or any other requirements. Guinness Book of World Records representatives will be there as they attempt to break the world record for most people to walk a catwalk.
Currently, the record is held by Galeries Lafayette, who have had 521 people walk down their runway. I hope some Lela London readers can make it and break the record with them! Express will also be holding an actual runway show at 9pm that same evening to showcase (and simultaneously shoot the lookbook for) their holiday collection. Fun for all!
