Country Attire 10 Year Anniversary Blogger Event

Tuesday, 27 September 2016

Last month I attended a most delightful afternoon with Country Attire, celebrating their 10 year anniversary. Country Attire prides themselves on offering the essence of British attitude to style, to customers around the globe. Carefully selecting testing and sharing products that look and perform their function beautifully. They offer a whole spectrum of brands from Hunter, Barbour to 7 For All Mankind

I was treated to a delicious Afternoon Tea at Proper Tea Rooms hidden at the heart of Manchester. As you can see there was a delicious spread of delightful sandwiches and amazingly sweet scones and cakes to tempt the taste buds. Of course, there was an awesome array of teas to cater to every desire or craving :). I myself, had the Honey Orchid which was sweet and rich with a burst of peach, lychee and honey aromas. However the winner for me had to be a full-force flavoursome tea named the Iron Buddha - now this tea definitely packed a strong punch of deep green tea but with a sweet and creamy after-taste.

The lovely people at Country Attire really thought of everything to celebrate at this event, from the gorgeous arrangement of designer handbags which included the quintessential Vivienne Westwood; to key autumn and winter pieces from Ted Baker; and of course spectacular pieces from Barbour and The Cambridge Satchel Company. They even arranged different games throughout the event, from lucky dip, to social media comps which had you actively utilise their different social media platforms - both Twitter and Snapchat and even had their own personalised Snapchat filter. I was lucky enough to win the biggest prize from the lucky dip of choosing any footwear from Sorel! I can't wait to show you guys the super cute boots I picked out! 

Thank you so much Country Attire for a beautifully tasteful afternoon!

Summer Styling With Sammy Dress

Thursday, 15 September 2016

I absolutely adore the summer, the genuinely good vibes that radiates from everyone when the sun is out, the fact that you can literally eat a cone of ice cream in public everyday without anyone batting an eye (please tell me you do this too?) and of course it's my birth season so all the more reason to love :)

I was kindly gifted a few pieces from Sammy Dress Clothing to review and style for the summer season and i'd like to share them with you here.

First up, we have this stunning co-ord set. I was instantly drawn to the neck detailing and overall girlie-feel of the top. The piece reminded me so much of a few Gucci-esq pieces I have previously had my eyes on! Even though the size is 'One size' I found that this to be quite a good fit for me (I am a UK size 8 incase you were wondering) My most favourite part of this ensemble is the fact that the skirt is actually get this, shorts! I was pleasantly surprised at the fact that the shorts were hidden away like a skirt, super convenient!

Next up we have this pleated jumper. Again first thing that I was drawn to was the ruffles and pleats of this super cute white jumper. On the model this looked like quite a loose and baggy jumper, however again it hung very nicely on me with a comfortable crew neck jumper style fit - do bear that in mind if your thinking of purchasing it, the detail and feel of the jumper is really lovely and adds that extra bit to a monochromatic outfit.

Sunglasses number 2*

Finally we have the sunnies! Now what outfit is not complete without sunglasses?

I absolutely adore these sunglasses and especially for the price, it was a no brainer! The shade of pink and stylish-feel look way more expensive than they are and I am totally feelin' it all.

Originally I thought these items would take a few weeks to get here considering they are a brand not based in the UK (reminds me of brands such as ChicWish & OASAP). But hey! Here they are, literally raced in around 3 days from ordering, very quick in my opinion and even faster than some UK based brands! I really recommend SammyDress if you are in the market for some new threads and make sure you check out their accessories section too!

What are your summer staples?
