Boohoo Press Day.....
What I wore: Long sleeve tee: Zara, Dungarees: AmericanApparel, Glasses: RiverIsland, Shoes: Topshop(old)

I went to the Boohoo press day today. Yes it was my first ever and yes I know about time I have been blogging for almost 2 years. I usually turn this sort of thing down, I had a fear of seeing people I know well through the Internet in real life. I can be an awkward bunny but it was fine, Silly me.

I met up with the lovely Steffani (who looked gorgeous and very tall in her JC Litas! I felt like a tiny little midget compared) for coffee before hand as we were both going to be loners at the event so thought we may as well to go together to avoid being loners etc……..

I was really surprised by the clothes that Boohoo had to offer as I have been on their site a few times before and assumed the clothes must look cheap in the flesh as they are fairly cheap to buy but most of it was actually good quality and the cuts and colours of the clothes were lovely. I especially loved their blouses and shirts, which came in gorgeous, jewel colours and animal prints (you know me) and their pleather shorts, which were a really nice shape, very sophisticated and not too short. I also had a bit of a soft spot for the faux fur coats, there was one in particular which was a kind of brown, beige and white mix and I forgot to take a photo! Ergh. Hopefully it will be mine one day soon so I can show you!

I learnt a couple of things today also. And here they are:

1. If someone asks you where you are from they do not actually mean where you are from, In my case ‘O I’m from Kent’ lol they mean what magazine or blog you are from etc

2. I need some sort of business card to save spelling my name and blog address out to people I have just met!

Looking forward to going to these sort of shindigs in the future now!

  28. Glad you enjoyed your first press release, and I agree I thought the clothes must be cheap quality if they're sold for so little but the things you have photographed look sweet - really liking that purple blouse.
