Pure Show 2013 and a £1 Tip Off!

I spent the afternoon having a roam around Olympia a few weeks ago at Pure (a trade show in case you haven't heard of it).  It was nice to have a look at what's coming in for the next few seasons, not only via the brands but also the catwalk shows.  Here are some of my favourites for this coming Autumn/Winter and next Spring/Summer.

The cocoon sweater

Burgundy and rich red tones were present for A/W and some fab shoes

Stunning gowns, nude gets my vote

Florals will still be here next S/S, Hooray! 

My favourite stand had to be Makki.  If you haven't heard of them, they are an accessories brand using eel skin.  My friend I was with freaked out but by the end, she came round.  It is such a durable leather, is the most amazing patterned skin and when worn in, is so soft.  Their clutch ipad case is a great design, what a fab idea.  

I wanted/needed to be comfortable but couldn't exactly turn up in my joggers so opted for my Gap wedges.  I can confirm I lasted all day in them (drove home in flats though).  Teamed with my Ralph Lauren chino's (again!) and a very old Miss Selfridge top that I paid something silly for like £10, it's washed so well.  Finished with my trusted and favourite handbag by Balenciaga, I was happy with my choice for the day.

PS Shopping tip off - Poundland for Sally Hansen and O.P.I nail-polishes - yes honestly!  Be quick.


  1. you look perfect, just like one of the 'fashion crowd'!

  2. Agree with FBB above, you look fab! Have you noticed Cos have done the dress you picked up for me with long sleeves for a/w?

  3. You look effortlessly gorgeous still rocking the chinos... Ps what goodies did you bag ;) xx

  4. You're right - the ipad clutch is a great idea and I love the colour. Your outfit is great ... chic and cool:)

  5. Ah thank you all! I bagged lots of bags actually! Promo type ones for brands but they always come in handy! Oh and some Joules sunnies and a fab book on ethical fashion.
    No I haven't seen it Sharon, is it on your wish list now then?! x

  6. Love the ipad clutch case, and your Balenciaga Bag:)

  7. My Balenciaga is probably my favourite, even over the vintage Chanels!x
