Littlewoods Press Day Event

Saturday, 19 November 2011



The Casual Brights & Plastics Range is full of bright & bold summery pieces. The colours emphasise that summer is dawning. This range is full of statement pieces to be worn to make a stand, hence neon colours making a comeback. The Hero pieces of this collection are the dresses, such a variety of different dresses in a wide aray of colours. All bold and bright, very obvious, yet still classy.


The Origins Range is a collection full of mustards, burgandys, and deep oranges, enhancing a major Earthy vibe. These pieces have a very Autumnal feel about them and the most obvious look to be achieved through wearing these pieces will be a bohemian look. Hippy Chic perhaps? There are many strong prints and long skirts floating around this collection.


The Lawn Games range is very modern, up to date British. Very typical 'Tea & Scones' themed. Cricket jumpers and tennis skirts being huge this Spring. Polka dots and daisy prints will make huge statements aswell as calm shades of blues along with whites, greens, and yellows being statement colours. Typical British games such as Cricket, Tennis, Polo, Croquet themed outfits are with this range are all about. The range hopes to make a huge comeback for the pleated skirt too.


The Marina Couture range is bringing back the Nautical theme which was huge in 2011. Majority of pieces are structured and tailored which automatically looks smart. Swallows and stripes are they key points to look for, and colours such as reds, blacks, blues and whites are all the rage in this range. The pieces are light and crisp ready for the Spring and Summer approaching  us.


The Ms Jet Set range is full of pastel coloured, feminine pieces. Icecream colours are a huge hit with this range, very paled down colours such as lilac. The material of these pieces are light and delicate, making crochet and lace the statement pieces, along with the occasional embellishment added to some pieces to jazz it up a bit. This range hopes to bring back light cardigans in the new year too.


The Black & Gold range is full of classic colours, black, gold and white. These pieces are very classy and very simple and can be worn for more than one occassion. The range is full of A-Line Skirts, Shift Dresses, as well as many grecian pieces. The simple pieces incorporate sheer materials and this works very effectively. The pieces in this range are perfect for Party Wear as well as for Wedding Wear.

The Oriental Floral range is bright and beautiful. Full of flowery pieces with a twist to make them that little bit different and unique. The majority of pieces are made from silk material, which gives them a light feel and look. The pieces are feminine and the patterns can be quite complicated, Japaneese inspired outfits with modern twists.


These are some photos from my day in London on the 16th November at the Littlewoods Press Day event with my friend good friend Beckie who's studying Fashion & Textile Management at University. I had a lovely day and met some lovely people as well as being able to view some amazing pieces which i've shown to you above. The SS12 Collection for Littlewoods amazed me greatly and opened my eyes to beautiful items. The prices of the items to be appearing in the Late February, Early March 2012 times are reasonably priced and will be key trends in the New Year. My favourite range is probably the Ms Jet Set range although i know that i'm most likely going to be able to wear much from this range as the pastel colours will make me look even more washed out then i do already. You can't really go wrong with the Black & Gold range is also one of my favourites, you see that dress i posted from the Lookbook.. yeah someone needs to buy that for me, because i think i've fallen in love with it. The Littlewoods PR team were lovely and welcoming, so friendly. I think what i found the weirdest though was that people actually recognized me. The last photo i posted is of myself and Daniela from Couture & Crumpets, who i met. Such a lovely girl!

Blazer: Primark. Top: River Island. Skirt: Urban Outfitters. Tights: Topshop.

Seems like forever since i last did an outfit post right? Such a bad blogger! Quite a smart outfit this is, mainly due to the fact that i went into school. I haven't worn this lepoard print top in such a long time, to be perfectly honest, i forgot i had it. The sleeves are 3/4 length, and the i'd the top as kind of 'boxy' considering if i stuck my arms out to the side, the top would sit in a box shape. I've tucked the front into the skirt which i think looks quite nice as the black waist band on the skirt is acting as a belt. Love the lilac colour of this skirt, the indent pattern on it is quite nice too. Everything always looks so much smarter with a blazer don't you think?

I've been invited to my first blogging event! It's in London, and it's to preview the Littlewoods SS12 collection, made me really happy to be honest, i never get invited to places. I really felt as if i'd achieved something. I had my first day back at school yesterday, i've spent a lot of time off due to medical reasons so was nice to go back even with extremely high anxiety levels. Small steps, little and often. Yep, they're the sayings getting m through haha. Bought 2 nice black dresses today, £45 for the both of them, very classy and just so me, YAYS.

11.11.11 Rememberance day. Rest In Peace to all the Soldiers who gave their lives so that could leave ours in peace.


If i had £150 to spend...

topshop outfit  129.5

This outfit would cost you £129.50 from Topshop. The top should be worn tucked into these shorts to create a nice, young look. The gold embelishment on the top matches the gold of the ring. You cannot go wrong with a pair of black heels, they are a must have for every girls wardrobe.


miss selfridge outfit 136.5

This outfit would cost you £136.50 from Miss Selfridge. A very sophisticated and classy look! The colour red oozes sexyness and confidence, but the gold jewellery helps to tone it down a bit. The black blazer should be worn unbuttoned to show off the dress and black ankle boots will compliment the blazer nicely.


river island outfit 148.0

A very casual outfit which would cost you £148.50 from River Island. The type of outfit you may wear out on a first date or out for dinner. Black skinny jeans always look sophisticated and with a pair of heels and jumper will give the outfit a calm and relaxed feel too. The ring just adds a bit of jazz to the outfit.


new look outfit 116.93

This outfit will cost you £116.93 from New Look! You'd be getting quite a lot for a cheap(ish) price. The outfit is boldy coloured without looked tacky. The blouse should be tucked into the skirt, and the bow should be tied up. The blazer should sit unbuttoned and will look lovely against the yellow. Simple silver jewellery and matching patent bag and heels bring this whole look together.

What are your views on these outfits? Would you be willing to spend the money, or not? Too pricey? Too cheap? Do you have a favourite?

How did you celerbrate Fireworks Night?
On Thursday i went to Sam's house with all his family and they had a huge bonfire and set loads and loads of different fireworks off! Was beautiful, so cute & romantic, first time in years i've done anything so i really enjoyed it! Tonight, on the actual night of Guy Fawkes, Sam and I have decided to stay in. I bought a couple sparklers earlier and instead of us going out to a fireworks display considering we have a lovely one at his a couple nights before. We've decided to stay in with a chinese, and do the sparklers in the backgarden with a few drinks. Cute right? Well here are a few snaps for y'all!
