I was super excited when invited to the #ArcadiaAW15 Press Event a couple of weeks ago. Arcadia house many of my longtime favourite high street brands; Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge, Burtons, Dorothy Perkins, Wallis, BHS & Evans.
I have to say out of all the collections Topshop and Topman got it right up my street. The seventies is officially here to stay for AW15 (hoorrrrraaaaaaaay she says) and there really are some beautiful pieces in store. First up on my picks is from Topshop.
I could have actually walked out with every single piece under my arm – there was such a feast of prints, fabrics and styles that have completely embraced the 70’s. I can’t wait for this all to drop in the stores in a few months. Autumn actually can’t come too soon!
I had the pleasure of being invited to the LK Bennett AW15 Press Day a few weeks ago and wow what a lovely selection of treats were and are yet to come for us fans. LK Bennett seems to be shining at the moment, just when we thought they had the graphic patterns, perfect pastels and ditsy prints nailed – they came up with even more beautiful variations!
I truly am in love with so much of the new season’s pieces. Particularly the pastel pink glitter dress & skirt. Look out for a mid Summer drop in August then more in Autumn.
