Last Wednesday I was invited along with my fellow Aberdeen bloggers to the Bon Accord Centre’s Summer Style event where they were showcasing the fashion and beauty must haves for this summer.
Various stores and brands were there including; New Look, Accessorize, Ness, Wallis, Warehouse, Benefit, Liz Earle, Estée Lauder and Coach amongst many more giving us a preview of what was going to be “hot” for Summer 2016.
For me it was all about the bags and I loved the Tropical Juice Carton one above from Accessorize, isn’t it cute? They also had a lovely floral embroidered and beaded clutch, as well as a floral satchel both pictured below.
New Look were displaying their fashion trends along with this season’s must buy – cute bomber jackets, as well as shoes, sunglasses and slip dresses.
Ness had some of their clothing range there as well as a selection of their bags and purses. There was a gorgeous top there but again I was distracted by their bags. I love their brightly coloured tweeds and my favourite is their Gardens Classic which comes in different styles from their huge travel bags to their purses. I deleted my photos thinking I had already uploaded them. I hadn’t :(! Never mind you can see what it looks like at the bottom of the blog post 😉
Warehouse opened their store for us to have a browse around, there were lots of lovely things and I was quite taken with this silk floral and bird print top.
Beauty next and Christian Dior were showing us their ranges this Summer and I thought that their Colour and Dots manicure kit was a fab idea as you paint your nails with the colour and then you make polka dots with the contrasting colour (I loved the blue and white one). Benefit are doing a promotion this month where if you get your eyebrows waxed they will donate the full price (£12.50) to charities that empower women and girls so get yourself down there as you will be helping a good cause as well as having gorgeous eyebrows. I’ve never tried Liz Earle products before but I have heard only good things about them, I will definitely be giving them a try as they are made using natural products but are also cruelty free.
Yo Sushi were there to provide sustenance for us and having never tried any of their food before I was quite impressed with their rice bowls, it tasted so good!
John Lewis put on a small fashion show for us where Jigsaw and Whistles clothes were worn and accessorised with Dune shoes and Coach bags. There was a gorgeous Coach bag there with a floral pattern but at £250 I couldn’t justify spending that much on a bag even if it was really, really pretty.
As I said earlier it was all about the bags for me and I went back a few days later and bought myself a Ness bag, I was torn between the juice carton one from Accessorize and the Ebony Classic but felt I would use the Ness one more so that won it for me.
What’s your weakness? Is it bags, shoes, nail varnish, let me know as I’m sure I am not the only one that has a handbag addictions?
