Mixed Metals...

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

This is what I wore to the Cosmo Blog Awards in London last week... Jen & I snapped a few quick shots before getting on the tube (the oh-so glamorous way to travel esp in heels) I dont really like how these photos came out but I wanted to share them anyway. Bodycon has always been a very scary option for me.. showing and accentuating every lump and bump..but I just love the long sleeves and the matt gold sequins so I braved it!

When I was London I was lucky enough to be able to attend Next's S/S 12 press day. I get invited to these events and unfortunately due to living in Northern Ireland I dont get to go that often. So apologies for the slight overload of images from the event!

I loved pretty much everything Next is offering for Spring 2012.. Autumn is probably my fav time of year for dressing.. the knits, the layers, the accessories but after seeing all the sugary goodness at Next I want spring to be here now! My fav piece was the navy & pink apple print dress Ive shown above.. but they also had a whole rail of ice cream coloured lace, fine knit and sheer fabrics..Im not gonna lie it entered my mind to lift the whole rail and run for the door..
