We took to the streets this weekend to hunt down the best of London Fashion Week street style. Arm candy this season is made up of bold colours, clutches and compact bags just big enough to fit in all your essentials.
If you hadn’t noticed London Fashion Week starts today. Cue models, bloggers, crazy outfits and of course incredible clothes, and handbags.
We invited Siobhan the blogger behind Just A Uniform to take over our Instagram account for the day to bring you all shows, events and a look at what goes on. Catch up with all the days action over on our Instagram account @marcbbags and don’t miss out on Insta Stories to see all the action live!
Here’s a few snaps from the day so far… Love the bag? Shop our Suzy Satchel.
What Sophia Says…
‘This bag ticks all the boxes. I am loving the funky strap trend that has been going around recently and this bag fits in with that perfectly with the cute eyelet detailing, the shape and lace detail is also very this season. This is such a great trend bag that I can carrying me through into the summer. As always the quality of this Marc B bag is amazing its really sturdy and just feels well made. I think I’ll be wearing this bag at fashion week next week!’
What Siobhan Justauniform says..
Isn’t she stunning? this bag is perfect for day or night. You can fit all your essentials in it. I also love that the bag gives that added bit of necessary colour, however at the same time it is muted enough to compliment any dress.
I recently teamed up with Marc B Bags, did a little bit of an insta take over for them, and from there I have fallen head over heels with a number of their bags.

You might have seen this lady take over our Instagram account recently, and it’s no lie here at the marc b studio we’re obsessed with her blog! We can’t get enough of her colourful outfits and jaunts around Margate! We sat down for a little chat about how she started blogging, who’s wardrobe she would raid and her favourite marc b bag!
Hi Siobhan, tell us a little bit about yourself?
Well hello there! I’m a northern girl who moved to Kent about 5 years ago. I moved to be closer to my parents, for better weather and to have London on my door step. With my northern roots, I am super friendly and will talk to just about anyone…… given the chance. This time last year, I left my full time job as a primary school teacher, started my blog justauniform.com and I’ve never looked back. I LOVE IT!
What made you start blogging?
Throughout most of my life people have stopped me in the street and asked, “Where did you get your shoes.” “Where is that dress from.” or “Which hairdressers do you go to.” Me being me I have always given them a 20 minute chat about my whole outfit, so I thought why not share it with the whole word. Sharing is caring after all.
Blogging also allows me to be who I want to be, so many professions don’t allow you to express who you really are. I now get to have the hair colour I want, dress the way I want and just be me….. It is wonderful!
How would you describe your own personal style?
“More is more, less is bore.”
If you could say one thing to childhood you what would it be?
“Your vibe attracts your tribe” So be positive, smile and everything will be just fabulous!
Who’s currently on your playlist?
Your house is on fire which item do you grab?
After my husband and my cat, oooo that’s tricky, really only one? I am so going to break the rules here!
It would have to be my vintage Gucci handbag, it’s a beauty and can’t be replaced. I would also grab my Camera, my iPhone and my MacBook as I can’t live with them.
Who’s your style inspiration?
The one and only, Iris Apfel. She is the reason I started my blog, what an inspiration!
Which up and coming brands should we know about?
Rosa Bloom! For me, any brand that loves colour, sequins and glitter needs to be heard about.
You can rummage through anyone’s wardrobe, who’s would it be?
Without a doubt, Iris Apfel, she has quite the collection.
Who should we be following on Instagram?
For the colour @iamfashionlaine
For all round cool @meganellaby
Favourite marc b bag?
