new look style the nation & a/w 2011


























Here are my pics from the New Look A/W 2011 press day that I went to on Wednesday as well as photos of when I went to the launch party of New Look's new Style the Nation show. Style the Nation is hosted by Nick Grimshaw and is basically a competition to find the next "big" stylist for New Look. 

As for the A/W collection, I really loved it. The colours were really lovely as were all the embellished dresses which I'm sure will be adoring my wardrobe. I loved all the chunky knits especially this bobbly dark red jumper, all the patterned jumpers and oversized cardigans. As we all know I have a knitwear obsession! There was some leopard moccasin style shoes that could rival my iconic Primarni leopard shoes! I noticed quite a few of the tribal/ethic style jewelry that the blogasphere has been rocking for what feels like forever! I'm sure as per most seasons New Look will be getting a large portion of my money this Autumn Winter. So gutted I don't work there any more to take full advantage of the discount!

I know I haven't done a outfit post all week, I am focusing on university so really expect blogging to be a bit sparse/without commentary for the next two weeks till my hand in! I have alot of things to post about as well, just have no idea when I'll have time to get it all done!

  8. That dress looks beautiful on you, I might pop into topshop monday and have a nose to see if I can find that dress. I kept thinking it was 'too blue'but it really is flattering! However you would look beautiful in a bin bag!

    Hope uni work doesn't run you down too much, I know it can be a major killer but having a bit of time to yourself is always a must to keep sane!

  40. So glad to see New Look back on form. I hated last year's AW press day, all the clothes were horrendous.
    Definitely going to try and get a job in NL at uni next year. Most of my clothes are from there and I need a job, so why not work somewhere with a useful discount eh?
    I love that blue dress on you!

  53. I never thought blue lace would work but you have certainly shown me otherwise- not tacky at all- kinda want one now!
    As always you love beaut and it loves like you had a fab time; jelo much?! ;)
    I'm actually shocked that those are from New Look, it looked more High end than High street, I guess that just goes to show you how good the old british high street is nowadays.
