Ladies and Gentleladies, fashion week fever is sweeping through the nation, last week it was Berlin Fashion Week, in February will be London Fashion Week and then we have the menswear shows…now what does this mean for a fashion blogger? Well a lot, the obvious Must Do’s being attending shows, networking at fashion events, yaddiyadiyada:but let’s not forget what a lot of bloggers really love about fashion week: that tap on the shoulder with words following, ‘Can I take your picture for ….?’ Come on, you know you love it, that’s why a lot of you dress for the occassion, some get it effortlessly right whilst others topple headfirst in the Try Hard pit.
Last week during Berlin Fashion Week, I attended the Blogger event to go to: Style Rankings, Fashion Blogger Café extravaganza to take some Fashion Week Personal Style pics. When getting ready for the event I’m not gonna lie, I chose pieces with the intention of getting my picture taken and when I attended the event, I looked out for people who adorned themselves with particular accessories and used certain layering techniques that caught my eye. The event was Oh So Much Fun, and after I had my picture taken by a few street style photographers, bloggers and magazine editors, I came up with the idea to write this article.

A killer manicure and Boss Gold Watch won’t hurt either.
