 I’ve decided this weekend I would stop shopping and indulge in a little culture. So I trotted down to the Saatchi Gallery to check out Chanel’s exhibition “The Little Black Jacket”.

Karl’s photographs are breathtakingly beautiful. Somehow being shot in black and white added to their beauty and made even the odder constructions look classic. From a nunned up Freya to a Clémence Poésy in an Indian headdress.

 Guess who? You'll never guess.....its Carine Roitfeld
 A smile? And a Hermes bag in a Chanel shot? It could only be the fabulous Jane Birkin.
 Favorite pic? Anna Wintour!!! Who else could be shot from behind and still be instantly recognizable.

 Best of all? They give you a free Poster of a print to take home. Hopefully this isn’t the closest Runway Girly will get to owning a Chanel jacket….but it’s a step.

Runway Girly's Vintage finds

Hi all. So sorry for my hiatus. Runway Girly has been in a period of transition. Its all change, location, occupation…….even wardrobe…which has meant less time to devote to blogging. Apologies all round.

But I assure you I am back and I will be sharing more fashion, style, clothes then ever before. I’ll be blog straight from the heart of chic-ness, LONDON!

Last weekend I discovered an AMAZING VINTAGE FASHION & ACCESSORIES FAIR in Hammersmith. Truly gorgeous gems on display. From 1950’s Dior necklaces to 70’s Lanvin its all there. Lets just say Rachel Zoe would have loved it.
 Anyone else sensing a real snake-y trend in jewellery?
 This piece puts the statement in the term statement necklace.
 Lanvin LOVE!
 Rachel Zoe's neck is missing from the above photo.
 How gorg are these? Exactly what my ears are missing.
I couldn’t leave without buying something so I invested in this statement chain necklace. While it is no designer I would label it stunning and one of a kind.

If you fancy checking it out the fair is monthly and the next one is on November 11th at the Hammersmith Town Hall. Check it out here
See you there!
