As you cannot possibly have missed from the many, many over excited instagram posts I’ve churned out, since last Tuesday I have been in the Big Apple for NYFW SS15! I always go out as early as I possibly to spend as much time as possible enjoying it. This usually involves visiting multiple J.Crew and kate spade stores, wining and dining with my friends in the city, getting fairly stressed out by the time difference (nothing makes a girl hyperventilate like waking up to a hundred urgent emails) and tiring myself out in the best possible way before shows even begin. After two very fun nights and one slightly frantic day in New York, on Friday morning it was time for me to don my first carefully concocted fashion week outfit and head to show number one. For some reason unknown even to myself I decided it would be a great idea to walk from Soho to the Meatpacking district. I do this every damn season.

In reality I arrived a sweaty mess and then discovered I was seated next to Leandra Medine who is possibly my biggest all time girl/life/wardrobe/career crush. Generally speaking I’m pretty ballsy about speaking to people but on this occasion my confidence gave out and I sat feeling uncomfortable and sticky trying to drum up the courage to introduce myself and eventually managed a hugely lame outfit complement and stammered “I love your site”.

You see fashion week is inspiring, incredible and a whole lot of fun but it’s also seriously intense. Over the season’s I’ve completed so far I’ve learned that there are certain things you can do, and others to avoid doing, that will help you get through the month in one piece, enjoy the experience and achieve what you set out to…

Mulberry & Cara Delevingne’s Wilderness Picnic

Mulberry Wilderness

As I probably don’t need to tell you, this post is a little belated (read: one month) because things have been slightly crazy chez LPA. Between the new site launch and prepping for four fashion weeks I haven’t got around to posting about my Wilderness experience until now but I want to at least share some snaps with you because it was such a wonderful day…
