Hello Autumn, you litte beauty, you.
A new season, means only one thing for us fashion lovers – A new wardrobe, full of new key trends! So, on the first day of London fashion week, the Milton Keynes blogging community met for the new AW17 style garden event, hosted by intu.
We were greeted with Prosecco and macaroons on arrival (Super dreamy combo) and were treated to massages from Clarins, makeovers and demonstrations from bare minerals and Laura Geller, hair styling by the lovely team at RUSH and lots of style tips from Topshop, Karen Millen, New Look and Miss Selfridges.
Bare Minerals were on stand by treating us to mini makeovers and telling us about their new BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation. Bare Minerals is a brand that my mum absolutely swears by, and a brand that I have been meaning to invest in for ages!
I also enjoyed Laura Geller’s new range of Christmas gifts. All beautifully packaged and pretty damn affordable! If you’re a fan of highlighter, make sure to check out their new Diamond dust baked gelato swirl illuminator. Admittedly, the name is a bit of a mouthful, but it so beautiful and pigmented! Plus their new Colour Luster lip-glosses are ideal for achieving that Christmas party look!
Now onto my fashion favourites!
A personal favourite of mine was New look. The lovely Gemma, talked us through the latest key items and must-have wardrobe staples. New Look are seriously nailing it with their new autumnal range, with an abundance of bright coloured statement pieces, chunky knits and beautiful floral embroidery.
I loved their soft leather skirts, and their feminine take on the classic biker jacket.
Karen Millen are another retailer that know how to ‘do’ AW fashion. Their new range boasts a traditional autumnal colour palette, with lots of burnt oranges, camels, monochromes and browns. The entire collection is ridiculously dreamy, and to be honest, I expect nothing other from the effortlessly classic, Karen Millen. I’ve linked their new #Workingit edit video in this post, for you to check out!
“This autumn we’re adding a touch of polish to life’s every moment, transforming the ordinary and mundane working week to be brighter, glossier and more extraordinary.”
All I’m going to say is think, ruffles, mustard, checkered blazers, staple denims and lots of statement red!
After our bloggers event, intu had lots going on each weekend of September, with makeovers, hair styling and style tips. I was also there, taking photos of all intu’s stylish shoppers, to showcase on the trend wall of fame!
“Milton Keynes shoppers are incredibly fashionable and work some fantastic looks, which we have been able to capture over the weekend for all to see,” – Kirsty McGiff, marketing manager, intu Milton Keynes.
A big shout out and THANK YOU to Lush, Karen Millen, Laura Geller, Clinique, Molton Brown, MAC, RUSH, Glam Glow, Topshop, Lancôme and Wrapchic, for providing goodies for us bloggers to enjoy! and of course, a massive THANK YOU to intu for organising the event, and bringing the brands and bloggers together!
Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post!
