This year the London Fashion Week shows all had something in common, 'Sleeves'. Whether it was coats, jumpers or dresses, the sleeves took centre stage. Flute, long, puff, ruffle, or furry the unusual sleeves were present in almost every show.
As the week was showcasing autumn/winter collections there was, as you would expect, plenty of long dresses and long coats. Coats made of tweed. Jumpers asymmetric at Burberry. Colour palettes of white or black, as well as patterned wear from Erdem and Christopher Kane.
Accessories included long gloves, scarf's and beanies. Round handbags at Mulberry, compartment bags at Anya Hindmarsh.
Natural makeup was a running theme this year as seen at Burberry. There was some flash of colour of blue & pink eyeshadow at Fydor Golan, Central St Martins and Natasha Zinko. Some smudged lipstick at Preen. Topshop and Eudon Choi both went for a russet lip.
Above are some of my favourite outfit & makeup looks from the week. To see more, head over to the London Fashion Week website here.

Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in 62 Libre was featured in Chanel's Spring-Summer 2017 Haute Couture Show on January 24th, 2017 at the Grand Palais in Paris. Worn by the models including Chanel's new muse Lily-Rose Depp, who closed the show.
Libre is a warm dusty pink shade that is very flattering and gives a fresh look to the face. It's a matte lipstick that is non-drying and has almost a silky feel texture. It's smooth and comfortable to wear but still gives you that intense colour.
This lipstick is high in demand and was sold out everywhere but thankfully it seems the shops are starting to restock.

These Portuguese custard tarts are quite simply the yummiest bake I have ever made. They are made with a silky custard and a crisp pastry, sprinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon. If you don't want to make the pastry from scratch you can use a ready made shortcrust pastry which tastes just as good. They don't take long to make and only need 9-11 minutes in the oven.
I unable to post the recipe as it's from rick steins long weekend book that accompanies the series of the same name. Shown on BBC Two last autumn, the series visited over ten European cities . I got his book for Christmas and it has become one of my favourite recipe books. The photo's inside are as stunning as the recipe themselves. I have included some picture here just in case you are curious.
Hey Rick! Where are you going next weekend........................
