JD Williams Christmas Preview And Meeting Friends


What better than to get a preview of one of your favourite clothing brands, being in London and meeting special friends?

You will have to excuse some of the picture quality here my friends, but I still wanted to share this great day with you. An invite arrived to view the JD Williams Christmas Product Showcase and Ashley and I thought it would be a great opportunity to catch up. Ashley is actually working for JD Williams at the moment and is on the Colour Council see here offering style advise.

Let’s take a look at the offerings

JD Williams


How gorgeous is this bag? I have to say all the accessories were stunning! JD Williams has really done well with all their accessories this year and there’s not a lot I don’t like! Take the most simple outfit, a plain black dress maybe and totally transform that dress in seconds with any of the accessories here.



Jewel tones and Florals. I love all the Berry colours around this year, it’s such a warm rich colour. Have you got this colour in your wardrobe yet? I have a couple of items in storage. I need to get the rest of my Winter wear out! There was a pleated Black and Gold skirt that I didn’t get a shot of that I absolutely fell in love with, but I found it here it’s available in Black and Silver too.

Party Feet!



Straight on my Christmas list! This  Navy Fur collared Coat was absolutely stunning! See a better pic here This really looks more expensive in real life than it actually is.


You’d think this bag was high-end designer! I love the Bee on the front!  This beauty is a mere £22.00

If You fancy boots rather than shoes to party in JD Williams have these sparkly heeled boots. I can’t stop thinking about Micheal Jackson when I look at these! Will be great with cropped trousers too!


Pearls! Now you all know how much I love pearls! Did you see my latest edition? But really, how beautiful are these?

The Ham Yard Hotel in London is gorgeous. If your ever visiting London go there!

I managed to grab a couple of quick shots of the hotel that the event was taking place. The Ham Yard Hotel is something a little different compared to traditional hotels in London. I could have stayed there all day taking it all in. A great place to meet for coffee or tea or lunch even. I will be returning.



And now time to relax with my blogger friends


I can’t tell you how great it was to meet the lovely Anna from Anna’s Island Style.



We could have chatted the whole day! A couple of hours zoomed by in no time! It’s so good to chat blogger talk with women who get it! A lot of my non-blogging friends just don’t understand. Do you find that? You get so passionate about something and you speak to a non-blogger friend and they look at you like your a looney!


Two Fashionista friends. We all hit it off immediately.And I’m sure we will be meeting again soon. I hope you will pop over and visit my two blogger friends. All in all such a fantastic day out and I can’t wait to do it again.

      Thank you Patti. It was a fantastic day xx

    It’s great to read about the event you and Ashley attended. The winter collected looks fabulous with lots of temptations on offer. I love all the rich colours and embellisments that are on trend this season, right up my street!
    Wasn’t it great to chat without explaining or apologising about our obsession? Blogging is a wonderful way to make friends with this common bond and I do hope we can meet up again next time I come to London. My dream is to have a bloggers meet up on Tresco one day…

    Have a lovely weekend!

    I absolutely love all of the embroidered details on each of the pieces. They truly have an elegant feminine flair that makes them so gorgeous. I definitely need to check this collection out.

    Those boots with the sparkly heels are divine! Looks like a fun day, I wish I could go to more press days – rail travel from the north west to London is rubbish. Blogger meet ups are the best!
