Firstly, apologises that my posts have been a bit few and far between lately, I have had a busy Easter getting prepared for my final exams and essays. But that hasn't stopped me keeping a keen eye on high street fashion! I have managed to squeeze in a few shopping trips (of course) and picked up some absolute bargains-pictures to follow!
But something else has caught my eye these past few days and that is the very first (!) Vogue festival! I am absolutely gutted that I missed out on getting tickets for this event but thankfully with their regular updates online and tweets I have felt like I was there. Interestingly as I scoured through some pictures of the fashionistas that attended the event I saw that a lot of them were wearing items from our fabulous high street! There were a few ahem 'vintage' items, but mostly they all looked chic and fabulous dressed top to toe in our high street retailers. Here are a few of my favourites, and hopefully they demonstrate that you can look quirky and original without opting for someone else's old clothes.
|Karie Bonington, student|
“My style is classic with a twist. Today I’m wearing a Miss Selfridge skirt, a shirt from Madewell, a New Look jacket and boots from Topshop.
|Claudia Tanner-Hammond, student|
“I’m really excited to be here. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at the Vogue Festival. Today I’m wearing a Miss Selfridge jacket and trousers from Primark.
|Laura Sophie Landschof, student|
“I’m wearing a jacket from Forever 21 and the rest of the outfit is from Zara.
|Sam Fox, trend researcher|
“I’m wearing a dress from Cos, Topshop boots and a bag from H&M. My style is quite relaxed.”
|Anna Howes, marketing manager |
“I’m wearing Topshop trousers with a shirt and bag from H&M. The boots are from Office and the jacket is from French Connection.”
