Fashionable Week in Review: Valentino’s in town, Missoni talks, Chanel Cakes and Barbour loving

It was a pretty crazy week last week and I do apologise for the lack of attention paid to my loyal FFG followers. Seems I barely had five minutes at a time to sit down and write. That being said, I wanted to share a small sample of what has happened in the last seven days.  Just a brief look at the fashionable week in review for you. Looks like this will once again become a regular feature so that you all don’t think I’m slacking off and keeping you in the dark. I am genuinely out and about, hunting for juicy tidbits to share here, there and everywhere! So here’s a play by play of the pictures you see above…

1. Early last week I dragged myself out of bed for the press preview of Valentino’s new exhibit at Somerset House. We were told we couldn’t take pictures inside, much to my dismay. So here’s a picture of the man himself and what I thought was a clever direction on the floor.
2. Boots. I wore my first five inch boots out and about on the town and lasted all of about fifteen minutes before abandoning and embracing flats once again. Definitely need more time in heels! Practising in the flat as you read this!
3. As I was in Covent Garden I popped into the Barbour store to check out the latest and greatest in stock. Fell in love with this jacket. The rest is history.
4. River Island held their Spring Summer 2013 press day last week and I will just say this is going to be one of the best seasons yet. So much to see and trust me, you’ll be hearing a lot more once the collection is available to buy in stores!
5. Ice Skating at Somerset House really makes it feel like Christmas!
6. Red’s Hot Women Awards was held last week at One Marylebone. I attended as a nominee in the best blog category. Was up against some seriously tough competition and trust me when I say the best woman won!
7. Angela Missoni spoke at Soho House and truly inspired the heck outta me! More on that to come…
8. My trusted Coach bag that got me through the week. Thought it deserved a shout out!
9. The Christopher Kane sample sale was bananas. I don’t even want to go into how much financial trouble I’m in now. Next topic…
10. A Chanel Cake… need I say more?
11. Christian Louboutin sample sale is today, so have to make this brief…
12. Finally… this weekend I moved into my new home, which means FFG has a new home. Who knows what change this will bring but I’m hoping it’s all positive.
