New Look #discoverdenim Press Event!



London tube strikes plus rain equals major chaos and I just so happen to be in London yesterday for New Look's Discover Denim Event which can only mean one thing, transport nightmare. Now a very important question remains; did I have an awesome day? Hell yes! Having jumped on a coach from Cardiff at 7:45am that arrived at London Victoria around 11:30am then spending an hour in the pouring rain trying to get a taxi, I did manage to arrive at New Look HQ in one piece.

Ebay Flat Top Fedora Hat / Thrift Coat / Primark Floral Shirt / Topshop Polo Neck Top / H&M Wet Look Trousers / H&M Bag / New Look Boots.

Outfit wise, it was only inevitable that I would find myself coloured in nothing less than colours and prints. I bought this shirt a month ago from Primark whilst it was on sale for just £2, too good of a bargain to leave, it's only just making it's grand debut. Teaming it up with these new wet look pants that I'm also wearing for the first time and a tartan coat to clash with the florals, it was all about simplicity with an edge. I finished off with a pair of New Look boots which I think complemented my trousers well, I'm forever experimenting.
Anyway, talk about one groovy set up! The showroom was done up beautifully with a denim inspired blue going right through. From blue candyfloss, blue drinks, blue washing machines to denim inspired popcorn and nail art; talk about being in a bloggers' paradise! Oh and did I mention that there was a photo booth; got to love that. Moving on to the actual denim pieces, there was so much to see. I was really impressed by their jeans, the choice of colours is young, its fresh and most definitely trendy. I'm enamored by their choice of style and design, it does not get any better than that.


Also, included in their new collection are the most adorable denim dresses, playsuits and shorts, summer can't come quick enough. New Look's acid wash mom jeans had to be my pick of the day, one of their employees was wearing a pair and they fitted her like a glove, everything was where it should be; exactly what jeans should be. I'll be receiving a pair of their acid wash mom jeans very soon. As expected, New Look delivered a darn right amazing collection, there is definitely something for everyone! You can shop their Denim collection HERE!

After talking fora a few days, I met Samantha(above), a fellow blogger from Southampton. Yes I know, her hair is totally rad! I also met Charnelle who has a blogger friend of mine for a few months now so it was nice to finally meet her in person, she's lovely. Not forgetting Amy Valentine, yes, I'm sure you know exactly who I am talking about, the girl with pink hair! Oh, did I mention that I want her hair!!
Samantha and I had the chance to customise a brand new New Look denim jacket which we will be giving away on our blogs very soon so here is a sneak preview of our customisation.


I had a great day at New Look HQ and would totally do it all over again. Thank you New Look!
Hope you've all had a wonderful day!
