London Fashion Week Diary : Day 3

8:00 am -  My alarm goes off, which can only mean one thing... Time for another day at London Fashion Week!

8:10 am - I read my emails and check Facebook and Twitter over a mocha. 

8:30 am - Another day, another outfit... Check it out here.

9:15 am - Off to meet Shirley in Bond Street!

10:10 am - We head off to Claridge's, where the Mulberry show is taking place. Neither of us has a ticket, but being the Mulberry girl that I am, I can't possibly miss it.

10:12 am - The place is packed with photographers, fashion lovers and celebrities waiting to come out of their cars. As for me? Well, I am hoping to catch a glimpse of the very much hyped Del Rey... Not the singer - the bag.

10:30 am - People start making their way out of the hotel. Some are holding Mulberry lock-shaped balloons, others are munching on bacon sandwiches and sipping bloody marys out of Mulberry-stamped bottles. Just your typical Sunday brunch at LFW!

10:32 am - Olivia Palermo comes out and strikes a pose for the photographers. She is wearing the infamous Manolo Blahnik "Something Blue" satin pumps. Yes, the Sex and the City ones!

10:37 am - Shirley points out that Olivia is now standing a few yards from us. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that Olivia is one of my all-time favourite style icons. In fact, she was the first celebrity I ever wrote about in my Style Crush series, which you can read here, if you haven't already checked it out.

10:40 am - Despite the fact that she is undeniably busy and that her car has just pulled over, she takes a few minutes to talk to us and take a quick snap. 

10: 45 am - Starbucks time! It'll be a tall soy latte for me, please - I sure can do with the energy boost.

11:00 am - Hmm, what to do on Oxford Street... Some shopping, of course! 

12:50 am - After going a little crazy in Selfridges, we decide to head to Somerset House to take some street style and action shots.

1:30 pm - I spot this girl wearing a gorgeous Ted Baker belt and Chanel 2.55 bag. Turns out, her name is Andrea and she has been following my blog for a few months now. How cool is that?
2:20 pm - Shirley and I stop at Prêt-à-Manger for a quick bite to eat, before hopping on a bus to the Topshop venue. It is one of those old-school open buses, that let you jump on and off. I have to admit, I am ridiculously excited. What else did you expect from a French girl, after all? 

2:40 pm - One of my favourite bloggers and photographers, Kris of Krisatomic, asks if she can take my photo for her street style feature. Needless to say, I am over the moon! You can see the shot here.

2:55 pm - It wouldn't be a Topshop Unique show without Alexa Chung on the front row...

3.00 pm - ... Or Olivia Palermo, who has now changed into a pair of Mulberry leopard-print pumps, floral trousers, a black blazer and a yellow top. I like to think my outfit inspired her!  

3.30 pm - The show over, people start leaving the venue, carrying cool complimentary Topshop "Who Are You?" canvas totes. 

4.00 pm - We get chatting to Shini, Carrie and Sandra about the show. I have been following their blogs for years, so it's great to finally meet them.

4.40 pm - We head back to Somerset House, where we hang out in the press lounge for a while.

5.30 pm - Time to call it a day. There is a Lush bath and a copy of Harper's Bazaar waiting for me at home...
