Chanel Linlithgow Show

13 days until Christmas! It's really beginning to feel like winter now. I absolutely love this time of year! Last week was the Metiers d'Art's Chanel show at Linlithgow in Scotland. I wanted to blog about this sooner as it took place last week on the 4th of December. Unfortunately, that was presentation day for me at uni so no time for blogging but i just had to mention it regardless! I really would have loved to have been there at the beautiful Linlithgow Palace. Doesn't it look stunning?!

The show is held in a different country each year and of course this year it took place in my native Scotland! Such a massive boost for Scotland on the fashion map! Very proud! The show highlights the work of Chanel's manufacturers from around the world. Fashion genius Karl Lagerfeld is rumoured to have spend 2 millions pounds on the show. He is undoubtedly the most classiest and fabulous 80 year old ever!

The show had a very scottish heritage vibe, inspired by Mary Queen of Scots who was actually born in Linlithgow palace itself. It featured a great mix of tartans and tweed. My favourite model Cara Delevingne was one of the stars of the show and our own Scottish model Stella Tennant kicked it off !
Looked amazing! Click here for a little video covering the show by BBC.
On another note, this week I had one of my first Christmas night's out. A sort of unofficial Christmas work's night out as my real one is on Sunday. Nonetheless a great night and here's what I was wearing.
I am a huge fan of backless detail in clothing. I think if worn correctly it can make an outfit! Everyone has been asking me where this is from so have decided to post it here to let you know. It's actually a body from ASOS and it cost £16.00. The extreme back dip and long straps are unusual, a great statement piece. My skirt is from New Look and originally £24.99 but I got it for around £9.49 or something due to their seasonal promotions they have had on. I love the sparkle it has through it and the dipped hem is one of my fave things. Perfect for some Christmas sparkle on your night out.
Have a great week. Lots of love
