Press Days

Warning, this post contains a lot of plaid!

I've practically been living in either work clothes or sweats for ages, but I had an interesting week last week, which required me to kind of look nice.

Superdrug Press Day:

My skirt is from, the plaid shirt/white t-shirt are both from H&M and the boots are New Look.

On Wednesday, Me and Leia were invited to a Superdrug Press Day in a cool Central London Hotel. For those of you who don't know, Superdrug is a really well known and popular drug store. They do all kinds of make up and products. It was a fun afternoon and we got to know about some great new make up companies and met some pretty cool people. We spoke to the Ruby and Millie about their new make up line thats aimed at young girls and it has some great packaging. We will let you know more about these brands as soon as we email around and get more information about them.

New Look Store Opening:

I'm wearing plaid shirt, H&M skinny trousers and boots from a local boutique. I think skinny trousers (not jeans) are amazing. They look professional and stylish, so you can wear them to work as well as a night out.

On Friday, New Look their brand new Flagship store on Oxford Street and we were given a sneak peek at it, the morning it opened. We got to check out the new store as well as help ourselves to food that was being offered around. The store looks amazing, not to mention there is a whole floor dedicated to just shoes! The floor dedicated to shoes was pure heaven!! And for the morning, everthing was also 50% off, so I had to buy some stuff:

Isn't that bag lovely. I saw it and fell in love instantly. I've been on the lookout for a perfect bag for ages and this is it.

How cute are these shoes!!! Pink and Lace. What more could I want??

P.S. Anyway, the weather in London is still FREEZING, and my family couldn't take it anymore, so we decided to book a holiday to sunny Dubai. I fly out today and will be back Monday afternoon, so will be missing from the Blogisphere over the next few days. I do have some posts scheduled though.

Lovely choice of outfits for the press days! How do you get invited to those things? Also I can't believe I had no idea about New Look's new flagship store - I was only in Marble Arch's store the other weekend and thought it couldn't get much better! I can't wait to come to London again :)

HAVE FUN IN DUBAI also! My family and I absolutely adore that place, the people are so lovely and it's so so so so clean. I'm extremely jealous right now!

Haute World said...

Can't go wrong with plaid! Loving both outfits and very jealous you're going to Dubai! I'm actually off to London tomorrow, and the depressing thing is it's actually warmer there than Paris right now. I've heard about the new New Look so I'll check that out. Still think it's a shame Borders is gone though!
