I love going to press events, the chance to see what's going to be available for the next season all laid out in front of me.
I went to the JD Williams press event a few weeks ago, but decided to wait and post this feature when the collection has been launched so you can get your hands on any of the items that may take your fancy. On arrival there I was surprised to not only see JD Williams but also Simply B, Jacamo and Lorraine Kelly's new launch of home ware.
On the journey to the event I got a thorough soaking from our lovely UK weather, and I have to laugh at this photo of me...
Once your hair gets wet, what do you do ? You pile it up, tie it up and hope for the best ! Knowing that your about to meet new people involved in PR you want to create a bit of an impression. So after thinking it through what to wear, I decided you can't go wrong on wearing something classic. A navy blazer, beige trousers and a white shirt. You can't get more classic than that !
But looking at this photo it's screaming out " I'm Mandy Fly Me!" I wasn't after an air hostess look really I wasn't !
Anyway getting onto the event and what's in store for fashion wise for this coming winter. I will start with Lorraine Kelly collection for JD Williams first.
A lovely array of print and colour here. Even though this is the first phase of Lorraine's winter collection these dresses are perfect timing for any special wedding or party you may be attending this summer. My favourite was this one Here which is available now.
This season also See's Lorraine branch out into home wear. I love all these grey tones. The rugs were beautiful.
How cool are these Lanterns ? I have just ordered This one for my living room
Are you loving all the Copper /Rose gold accessories out there at the moment ?
Now onto the JD Williams Collection. What I liked about this was the colour palette. No dark colours (well only a few) One thing I'm certain about this year is that I will not be wearing hardly any black. Maybe Trousers or a skirt but that's it for me. I am finding as I age black is draining the life out of me. It's going to be camel, brown, maybe navy and burnt orange. What's your favourite colour for the coming winter ? Have you thought about it yet ?
I made a bee line for these Culottes They are available now, the quality was good and I think Culottes are going to be a big trend this year.
The accessories were pretty cool I like the Olive tone's These are little different from black/brown
Halfway round the showroom, time to have some Canapes and a drink . I'm sitting here taking in the ideas for entertaining at home !
The next collection was Simply B A range for ladies in sizes 12 - 32 Again gorgeous colours here and carrying through from Summer the lovely Pantone colours of the year Serenity Blue and Rose Quartz
I am loving the Bomber jacket trend ! Be it for casual wear or a night out. This Pink one is gorgeous
And it's not only our Home ware that's going for Gold. How gorgeous are these Diva block heeled sandals? Simply B have different width fittings for comfort, so that's a real bonus
Last on the tour and I would like to mention was the Jacamo range. I chatted to someone available to talk about the range. What I found out was how generous their sizing is. If your man is built larger than average, that Nike pair of trousers you can't get in his size in the sport shop might well be available through Jacamo. So if your searching for something nice for your man, head over to their site.
Have you seen anything that's caught your eye ? I would love to hear what you think of the collection ?
