All seasons of 2012

After my time at the Next AW12 Press day, I scampered across to the Dorothy Perkins & Herbal Essence press day.  An absolute opposite clothing collection due to this being all the delicate summer wear, that is gracing the Dorothy Perkins rails.  I must admit I’ve never been a massive fan of Dorothy Perkins, as the local store to me always seems to have more concessions than Dorothy Perkins products! However, I was really surprised at the lovely items available.  There were many delicate tones, and feminine charmed items, I absolutely love their sandals and clutch bags. 

Can you see why I fell in love with their items?  This little clutch bag with the zebras is an ideal holiday outting bag! Below you will see some sparkles – those wedges are amazing, perfect for nights out and better yet wedges means we can walk! (Yay!)

Whilst at the Next event I met the lovely fellow blogger Kylie from Memoir Mode.  We both ventured to this press day together in the heat!  We knew Herbal Essences was going to be about so we both got our hair done.  I had some loose curls, whilst Kylie had a long locks done up.  I was mighty jealous as it looks devine! 

It was plaited from the side and clipped around the back.  Completed with a floral hair accessory to give it something a little different.

With our hair set we headed over to the Reiss AW12 collection.  It was utterly boiling outside by this point so seeing more warming clothes was going to be tough.

To me, when I think of the brand Reiss – I think of fabulous style.  It completely oozes sheer class and this AW12 collection is no exception. 


Whilst having a browse amongst the items I was immediately drawn to the chunky jewellery.  I tend to stick to my comfort zone with jewellery but these necklaces really made me rethink.  I’m looking forward to adding chunky statement jewellery like this to my outfits over the later months.

How beautiful is this little jacket? covering in bead work.

Again more statement jewellery was seen everywhere.  This dress teamed with that chain necklace is the way forward. 

Of course it wouldn’t be an AW collection without some sparkle, now would it?! Chunky heels with shiny beads on them can be perfect for Christmas parties… and matching clutch bags! 
To round up, I had an extremely busy Thursday in the heat but it was extremely worth it.  I love the tease we get from press days of what is to come!
