Cabot Circus Fashion Tour – AW11 Trends

As I posted on Sunday, I went to Cabot Circus to see their fashion shows. Laura was there as well, so after the first show at Quakers Friars that I saw, we went to Harvey Nichols for a cup of tea and a gossip. Yes, we are actually little old ladies.

The second show I saw was in the main Cabot Circus building, and had some gorgeous stuff.

For the men, it was all very casual wear – from knits, shirts and chinos to t-shirts, scarves and jeans. Nothing overly exciting or trendy, but all quite similar to things that my boyfriend would wear.

There was more variation with the ladies, with some gorgeous work wear from Hobbs (loved the cloche hat and black suit (top right in photo)) – not just black suits, but dresses with prints on of silhouettes and whippets (!). Gant and Guess had quite similar items, casual looks with jeans, shirts, and tweed (I love the heritage trend this season!). A|Wear had some lovely autumn-y colours, combining knitwear with shorts and chiffon with denim – this seemed a bit strange on Sunday when it was sunny but mild, but this week seems perfect! River Island finished the show with a mostly black and white colour scheme, with a huge dance routine.

The problem with these fashion shows is that I end up wanting to buy lots of new clothes!

Brighter Than Sunshine

So this is what I wore on Sunday to watch the Cabot Circus fashion tour shows – I love this dress that I bought from Primark last week (£13 I think) – its a prom shaped dress, but its knitted, so feels a bit more casual than it looks. I’d prefer it with sleeves though – I have weird blotchy arms and I prefer to keep them covered up! Belt is again from ASOS (£15) and the same old boots from USC (£35) that I seem to have worn in the past few outfit posts! Oh, and I think you all know where the bag is from – this was its first outing and its the perfect size for me. I can squeeze in so much and it doesn’t feel full.

This is just a short post today, because Sarah Mia kicked me up the bum (er, via GTalk) to get things going with Bristol Blogs – if you’re based in or around Bristol, please do check it out :)

HtCC: Rain Rain Go Away

Ah, the Great British Summer. *looks outside* So obviously I’ve been looking at new raincoats and umbrellas for the past few months. This summer has been grey, grey, wet, grey with occational blasts of sun. I’ve had the same mac from Topshop for a few years now, and feel like I should be adding more coats to my collection!

rain coats

I love brightly coloured coats, they’re such an easy way to brighten up a dull rainy day.
