Trace Publicity SS17 Press Day

Last week I was invited to Trace Publicity's SS17 Press Day which showcased previews of fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands. The evening was hosted across four floors with an exclusive look into next seasons collections, sure to get any fashionista excited for 2017!

Revolve is an online retailer with over 500 fashion brands including Free People and Marco Jacobs. With a selection of high quality fabrics and prints, you're sure to find the perfect pieces for your next S/S wardrobe.

Full of vibrancy and colour, La Portegna's collection of shoes and accessories were a highlight of the evening. This Spanish brand hand crafts it's pieces from natural materials and uses the inspiration of the country's traditions and culture in it's designs.

Furla is a unique handbag company with a strong Italian heritage dating back to 1927. Each handbag is made with 100% leather with a variation of designs and colours for all seasons.

Looking to zhush up your intimates draw? Boux Avenue has a beautiful selection of delicates and nightwear that compliment any shape and are of excellent quality. It's the ultimate destination for everyday comfort and for that something a little extra special.

My favourite display of the lot, Astrid & Miyu offers the most stunning range of gold, silver and rose gold jewellery. A British born, London based company, that creates everything from pendants to earrings, rings to bangles and it also has a selection of personalised pieces.

Folli Follie offers stylish bags, watches and jewellery amongst other fashion accessories including sunglasses and scarves.

Bimba y Lola is an international women's clothing brand with flamboyant prints and textiles. I especially loved the sunglasses, they're so chic and are such statement pieces.

Bedouin is a unique,contemporary women’s wear label with a minimal approach to it's designs. I rather like the 'less is more' attitude of each piece and well they would work layered together.

British knitwear brand Cocoa Cashmere has a true English heritage that shows in it's pieces. This collection consists of pretty pastels with jumpers and cardigans that are wonderful soft to wear all year round.

72 Hair develops products to improve the condition and the appearance of your locks with a range of intensive treatments, styling creams and nourishing shampoos. The product packaging has also been made with green technology in mind.

I have been a huge fan of Rituals for years and I was super excited to be able to get up close with the brand and to learn more about their new products. New additions include home fragrances, body care and of course the amazing selection of Christmas gifts. I really want to get my hands on this year's advent calendar!

Inspired by the landscapes of Tanzania, Baobab offers a wonderful collection of home fragrances and scented candles presented in beautiful glass vases. Fragrances range from earthy spices and woody notes to delicate florals and sweet fruits.

I'd like to thank Trace Publicity again for letting me attend this preview, it was lovely to meet you :)

EverGlaze Extended Wear Nail Polish

*PR sample

The arrival of Autumn means a change of colour - for the nails that is! Now that we have transitioned into the colder months, these three shades of EverGlaze Extended Wear nail polish are just perfect for A/W. 'Taken For Pomegranate' is a deep shade of red with a hint of shimmer, perfectly festive for everyday wear but chic enough for a Christmas party. 'Fig-ure It Out' is a daringly dark purple that adds a bit of drama to the nails and finally, 'NY Slate Of Mind' is a grey tone with a blend of multi-colour specks of glitter sure to sparkle through the night.

All three polishes apply wonderfully and have fantastic pigmentation with one to two coats. They're durable in wear and also dry incredibly quickly. I'm already really impressed with EverGlaze and would love to explore the range further.

Lovisa Choker

Lovisa 'Love' choker - £7.50

On a recent shopping trip I came acrossAustralian jewellery boutique, Lovisa which had a huge selection of accessories. There was everything from gold and silver collections to unique beaded staple pieces.Whilst browsing I absolutely fell in love with this gem stone choker and I just had to have it. It has a simple black band with gold detailing but what caught my attention the most was the white and black marble stone. It's comfortable to wear and completes any outfit, it's so versatile in that it can be worn with a slouchy jumper and jeans or dressed up with a LBD and heels.
