What's Your A/W Persona?


Every season we are faced with a wealth of fashion trends ready to confuse and intimidate the living daylights out of us. One minute we are girly in saccharine sweet lace and the next we are clad in skintight leather wielding £500 whips. It's a tricky biz this fashion lark, but I do rather love it- just in case you were not quite aware...

I know that all those lovely fashion folk are risking life and limb at fashion week (as some tweets appear to suggest... First world problems, ladies and gents?) to peruse the SS13 collections for trends and the like, but in the real world it is only just starting to feel autumnal, and therefore it is time to immerse ourselves in our AW wardrobes.

Just hold on to your horses, I'm enjoying GBBO waaaay too much to be thinking about crop tops and bikinis just yet. Gimme gimme gimme that blanket coat and fur gilet - let this less than perfect body remain in blissful hibernation until there is no alternative! 

So this post is a little guide on which Autumn/Winter persona to take on- its just a bit of fun really, not intended to be a deep psychological experiment that reveals your true self. I'm just a fashion blogger, sorry. 

You have one of three options, revealed in my silly little Q&A below... This season will you be a goth, a geek or a glamazon? 

Where do you tend to get your style inspiration?
A) Vogue, Harpers, Elle. It's all about the high end fashion houses and couture, anything avant-garde really.
B) Blogs. All about the blogs. I like accessible fashion, ya see, it's all about clothes that I can wear and look nice in.
C) Nowhere. I lead, I never follow... But I like to think my style is Daphne Guinness meets Rosie Huntington Whiteley at Studio 54 in Givenchy Haute Couture. 

Who would you say you dressed for?
A) Facehunter, The Sartorialist, Tommy Ton. 
B) Myself, I suppose. I wear whatever makes me feel good.
C) To keep my followers and admirers happy.

What was your favourite trend this summer?
A) Leather. It's my favourite trend every season, I love it's risque quality.
B) Pastels and lace probably. Feminine but understated.
C) 1970s Luxe, obviously. Lots of gloss and glamour for moi.

Who is your favourite designer?
A) It varies from season to season, of course. For A/W I was obsessed with Gucci and Givenchy.
B) I always love ChloƩ, Celine and Stella McCartney.
C) Dolce and Gabbana- if you've got a gilded black cloak and embellished knickers, i'm all yours.
