London fashion week; my favorites

Hi!

I’m a little late with this but nevermind!
London fashion week just finished and for me that is the most amazing fashion week of the year. I love the work of all the british designers. I thought I’d just post some of my favorite outfits/shows of the LFW 2013. They’re al black and white , cause that are kind of the only colors I wea :)r. My fave show was the Burberry Prorsum both spring/summer and fall/winter.

I loved almost everything I saw on the catwalk of the Burberry show this year! All the clothes are so casual but still look very luxurious. I picked the outfit Jordan Dunn was wearing because I think she looked amazing in it and I love the blouse.

Veggies are an important part of everyone’s diet. They contain dozens of important nutrients and have loads of dietary fiber.
