I have never been to a blogger event before, I have been invited to a few in London (yesss babeeee was my reaction to the invites because its LONDON) but for someone who lives 5 hours away from London, it’s not the easiest place to get too. However a few weeks ago I vvvverryyy excitingly got invited to an event in John Lewis!
My nearest John Lewis have recently introduced three new brands into their shop (Boden, Hush and And/Or) and have recently introduced their new own ageless range, so they got us in to talk about it and let us have a sneak peek!
Me and Sophie (from @stylesofsophie_) arrived, after having a cheeky costa, and they very kindly offered us some pro secco and some canapés. How posh! After meeting everyone, and all the other influencers, who were all so inspiring BTW, we sat down and had a talk with the brand reps from Hush and Boden. They showed some features from their autumn/winter range (which is all on sale now!) and some of the pieces… well all were BEEAUUUUTIFULLL!
Boden’s pieces very much followed the red theme for the season, its more of a cooler and softer red, and they love bright pieces. Hush is more of a casual brand and this season they are focusing on the forest greens and wine colours. And/Or which is a brand created in California is based around denim, so dressing from the bottom up all around the jeans. Then finally John Lewis and Partner’s ageless range was based around creating basic bold pieces that anyone of any age, shape size or colour can wear! How cool! They focused in clashing colours, a bit like throwing it back to the 80s!
Phoebe, John Lewis’s stylist, then gave us our outfits that she had picked out for us (thank you Phoebe!). I got dressed in some lovely Boden Navy Cullottes << here are a similar pair in orange >> which was matched with << this top from Hush >> (Hush very much like their galactic and star themed prints). I got some stunning mustard accessories to match it from the John Lewis and Partners brand including this << Yellow Handbag >> and these << vVery comfyyyy trainer >>.
Last but not least we got to watch the fashion show, with our complimentary G+Ts, and it was utterly fantastic. All the models, who were actually staff from the store, did a fabulous job and I loved all the outfits. I got loads of videos of it on my Instagram stories so if you want to see it then head over there!
I want to say a massive thank you to Phoebe for looking after us all afternoon, and dressing us in some fab fab FAB outfits, and also to John Lewis for inviting me and giving us the most lovely goodie bags to take away with us!
