September's best bits!

Happy 1st you need any more reminders about how quickly the year is whizzing by?!? time seems to be speeding up!

What to look forward to in October then? Well, a few things... 
First off, it's Black History Month which means there will be a plethora of interesting events put on around the country.   One show I will be making time to see is The Scottsboro Boys which is on at The Garrick Theatre from Oct 4th through to Feb 21st.  
It tells the true life story of nine young black boys wrongly accused of rape in Alabama in the 1930s. The case is now widely considered a miscarriage of justice that eventually produced the end of all-white juries in the South.  
I think it's important for these tragic stories to still be told today and this musical was winner of the Critics’ Circle Best Musical Award 2013 and nominated for 6 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical.  It is also the final collaboration of legendary composing duo Kander and Ebb of CHICAGO and CABARET so it should be good!

Secondly, at the end of the month I will be sitting on the FROW at my first blogger event in conjunction with Company Magazine!  I'm very much looking forward to a night of fashion shows and also a chance to meet some other lovely bloggers- look out for plenty of pictures and the review after!

Below I have chosen some of my favourite posts from September in case you missed any ;)

Here's my September best bits:

I finally got a chance to visit Borough Market and indulge in the full experience of one of Londons most popular food markets. A fabulous place.

The new Christian Dior commercial for J'Adore Dior premiered on 3rd September with the amazing Charlize Theron at the helm again.  I reviewed my favourite adverts from the campaign.

Went to the Tower of London to see the moving art installation of poppies to mark the centenary of the First World War. Such an incredible display and really worth seeing which will remain in place until Armistice Day.
Black History Month have also got some exhibitions this October, remembering the involvement of the many Caribbean, African and Asian soldiers from the British colonies who also fought and lost their lives during this war.

I looked back at my younger self and asked...what do I know now that I would have wanted to know back then...Take a look at what I came up with!

Lauryn Hill was in London and I finally got a chance to see her whoop whoop!!!
Read my review here.

Lastly, it was Fashion Week again and we all got a preview of what we might be wearing next Spring/Summer.
The most memorable show for me has to be Jeremy Scott for Moschino which he debuted in Milan Fashion Week.  
I love his outlandish, completely OTT, fun, daring style and his whole SS15 collection was inspired by the girl everyone wanted to be at some point in their lives....Barbie!
Some items in my opinion were completely unrealistic to wear in the real world but others I could quite envision popping up on the shores of Ibiza and Marbella (below).

Thanks for reading and stick around to see what Oct brings!

Love, Ivy Geore x
