Katie Carter Fashion Diary

I met the lovely Katie Carter outside the Armand Basi One show at London Fashion week where she looked stunning ! I simply had to snap her for my LFW street style blog diary. After spotting her around a few more shows I asked her to keep a clothes diary of herself for a week, documenating what she was wearing and where she was wearing it. Katie being the wonderful bubbly person she was, agreed and I recieved a string of emails not too long ago with a full account of her inspirational style. Katie, I love you + I'll be seeing in Brick Lane on the Sunday !



My first pic is me ...
a la fashion week...
got a leopard jacket bought in Leeds at a vintage warehouse... that was back in the day when it was still cheap to buy vintage and the shirt is from Zara..
my cordroys are h&m and the second red zebra jacket was in the hot hot topshop sale, bit of a bargain!!!
my winkle pickers were from a 60s shop in the merrion center in Leeds and the giant dickie bow is a pass me down from the grandma, my eccentric nan!!! hahaha...

For girls, women or whoever wants pink shoes, there are Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi Premium shoes. They can probably be worn on the basketball court, but might be a better fashion statement off the court.

Now go out and start practicing your basketball skills in some Jordan shoes. You'll at least look like you know what you're doing.
