LFW AW16 Day 2

It's been a while, my lovelies. And I know I'm very late with my fashion week posts.. 
I decided to take some time off, to think, to breathe, to live, to disconnect. 
Have you ever felt like you don't know what's going on anymore, like you are confused about the tiniest aspect of your life...? That's simply how I felt and a break was what I needed. 
London seems so chaotic lately; and I don't think it's just London, but the whole world.
It is all about west and east, dawn to midnight, walking horizontally and taking life pauses vertically. Drinking tea in hotel salons and never noticing the roses or the clouds chasing one another in small shivers...

So here I am during Day 2 of LFW, wearing a white silk blazer, navy coat and a blouse which I’ve paired with accessories in crimson hues.
The beauty of red is that there are many interpretations and tones. Those beautiful dresses and feisty red lips, as seen on the big screen, cemented the colour's place in pop culture. The shades worn by starlets of the 40's and 50's, like Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe made Hollywood allure available to the masses in a format that fitted in your handbag. 
Red has been a part of history and it has almost become notorious as part of beauty through time. It can be a learning curve for the cautious, a way to build up confidence in your wardrobe or to brighten your day. If its glitzy history isn't enough to sway you on red, don't let its stronger connotations scare you off entirely. For a day-to-day look, you can choose hues in the form of accessories and accents that can turn heads without overdressing their owner. Start with lipstick - there's a shade of red for everyone - and then work up to a hat or shoes, or a handbag. The same goes for roses whether you wear them or enjoy their beauty in nature.

Myth has it that Venus' son Cupid accidentally shot arrows into the rose garden when a bee stung him, and it was the sting of the arrows that caused the roses to grow thorns. And, when Venus walked through the garden and pricked her foot on a thorn, it was the droplets of her blood which turned the roses red.

And there's no doubt that everyone loves a slash of red lipstick and roses in their garden.
