All White For Amanda Wakeley LFW

Luxemme Amanda Wakeley SS16 London Fashion Week
Do you know the following?: It's Saturday night, you've got nothing else planned bar snuggling up on your settee (maybe watch some Netflix) and suddenly, an email pops up in your inbox, which quite unexpectedly changes the entire course of your evening? Well, it has happened to me last weekend, when my friend Laura sent me a quick message asking me if I wanted to join her for the Amanda Wakeley Fashion Show. OMG course I did!

Amanda Wakeley For London Fashion Week

Excited to start the week with another appearance at London Fashion Week, my Saturday night suddenly became all about fashion research. To be honest with you, I've never heard of Amanda Wakeley before but when Laura sent over a link to the Amanda Wakeley Spring Summer 2015 collection to see some pieces of her collection I was hooked on her amazing designs with feminine cuts and mature sophisticated styles.

Did you click on the link to see the collection? If you have, you know what I mean (insert heart emoji here). When I saw the sleek, elegant designs in white I knew I had to turn up in a similar outfit to pay tribute to the designer. Actually, I was really surprised about myself because white is usually a colour I stay away from. 

I feel white makes me look bloated and it's not as flattering as for example black. However, Luxemme recently offered me to review a fashion item of their current collection and I decided for a white lace two-piece combo*. With the Amanda Wakeley show around the corner, my outfit was sorted without a shadow of a doubt.

Is It A Dress? Is It A Twin Set? 

'Oh, that's a nice dress' - Well it is actually a two-piece combo consisting of a top with lace trim and a separate skirt. Worn together it looks like a dress. Clever, right? I never had a two-piece combo before and when I tried it on for the first time, the UK10 fitted a bit tightly (oh well, all the Magnums made themselves noticeable, time for a diet!). 

It got better throughout the day and I felt very confident in it. The material is a great mixture of lace and polyester but without the unpleasant plastic feel to it.

The white really comes into focus due to my summer tan don't you think? I teamed up my outfit with my Sheperd's Bush Bangle from Whistle & Bango, my Daniel Wellington watch and a super chic leather wrap bracelet* from Boho Betty. How gorgeous are the Amanda Wakeley show invitations?
