Ah September, we meet again. I’ve been pretty excited about that because I have a little time off work, but mostly because it’s London Edge time! It opened yesterday and I dragged my excited butt up to London to check out the collections for all you lovelies. This season’s event was actually a little different to usual as a lot of the larger repro brands have been super organised this year and got their lookbooks out early in the past few weeks, with some even releasing large portions of their lines already too. Consequently, I’ve tried not to take pictures of items that are already on sale or those you would have seen in lookbooks, but in case you’ve been out of the loop lately I’ll add links to any online Lookbooks and new releases below as well. Let’s go!
We may be having a late burst of summer here in the UK but I am officially ready for Autumn. Bring me tartans and plaids, bring me windfall apples and slightly cool mornings that allow me to wear one of my many fabulous coats that have hung unworn aback my bedroom door for the last 6 months. And bring me Hell Bunny’s AW17 line, because damn y’all, there are some cute-arse stuff in it that have got me feeling all the fall feels.
I’ve been desperate to buy this Peebles 50s dress for weeks now, after first seeing it previewed in a London Edge promotional email. I may or may not have bugged Hell Bunny’s designer and PR manager Sarah one too many times about its potential release date in my eagerness ever since–sorry Sarah! But finally it’s here, the dress that has literally everything I ask for from my favourite cold weather styles–flattering three quarter length sleeves, a fitted bodice that emphasises the waist, a full swing skirt, a gorgeous green tartan print and, finally, beloved pockets. I can’t think of a single thing I would add to this dress to improve it because it is all my winter dreams come true.
