Our Fashionable Night Out!
All fashion land dwellers stayed out late last week Wednesday, not because there was an all night sample sale at Louboutin, it was the now legendary preamble to LFW that is known as Fashions night out!
Mr Manolo Blahnik!
Bella got to spend time with the legendary Manolo Blahnik (shoe-king foreva!) I had a lovely chat at Liberty's where he told us "a woman always needs to balance comfort and style when it comes to picking a shoe. Never buy something beautiful that will in turn cause you pain and make your feet ugly!" Couldn't have put it better myself Manny B (we're tight like that- nickname levels). The fun continued at libertys when we bumped into one of the first supermodels to hail outta blighty in the 80s, the forever young Yasmin Le Bon. Looking half of her 45 yrs we had a little chinwag with the former model about style "when it comes to clothes I'm all about comfort, although when you're finding your style its good to step out of your happy zone and get a little fearless. Also pain is sometimes fashion! Some beautiful things are worth suffering for!" Well said Mrs Le Bon. Minus her rockstar husband she still rocked out, we spied Yasmin getting down to Lady Gaga's Telephone- the Liberty's DJ was on fire!

I headed over to Furla with a few friends. The design house had oh so yummylicious cocktails laid on courtesy of Isolabella- we couldn't get enough of the mojito based drinks or Furla's luxe Wizard of Oz inspired collection.
We then made a quick stop at Topshop to get some style advice- we were told to channel vintage-esque festival chic, with lots of layering. Thats a sexy little look right there!

Post Topshop we decided to get our party on and hooked up with non other than Matthew Williamson at the Moroccan restaurant/ club Momo's.
All I can say is, that designer can dance. From Beyonce's Single Ladies to Katy B's On A Mission the man didn't stop shaking his perfectly formed derrier. FIN
