You know those 20million times – slight exaggeration – that I professed to try and branch out of my “black, black and even more black” comfort zone and wear more colour?… Yeah, so, I failed.

… And big time it seems as today’s outfit brings you literally nothing but the holy grail, mothership, saviour, lord beautiful colour that is black. What can I say? I am a boring bitch shallow excuse of a fashion blogger.

In slightly less disappointing – because obviously you are all devastated about my “failure to dress like a rainbow” – news I did manage to leave my pit where I spend 16hrs per day at least blogging, emailing, editing and repeating (basically, working) to make it down to the Debenhams AW15 Press day and my god was it worth it.

So, how about we get the boring stuff out of the way i.e what I slapped on my face and shoved on my body… and then we’ll head over to the press day and swoon over the coats/shoes/bags/accessories/all the stuff, together yeah? Great, let’s do it…

Hey, bitch Pigeon, stop trying to steal my thunder please!
Lycra/Nylon stretchy top meaning that it’s perfect for those food baby moments i.e all day ehhrday: Zara 
Leather MC Hammer-esque trousers: Boohoo
Mules: Primark… because, where else?
Next up is a special mention to 3 gorgeous products I’m wearing below. We have:
1) The Body Shop Honey Bronze highlighting dome which is so ridiculously stunning. A golden, sheeny, coral pink which is just so perfect for Summer.
2) Mac Patina which I rave about constantly. A gorgeous olive green tones gold that is impossible to describe and impossible not to love.
3) and lastly, Rodial’s Glamstick in Bite which is actually perfection in lipstick form. I raved about it here and I have a full review coming up next week. 
Now that we’ve established just how boring/safe I am when it comes to outfit and makeup choices, let’s have a little look around #DebsAW15 press day shall we? Starting with the stunning flowers that greeted me at the entrance and have continued to grace my Instagram feed ever since. #SorryNotSorry
Flowers done, if I wasn’t slightly adverse to the phrase “pinterest-worthy” I’d say they were just that!
Sod it, they were so pinterest worthy…

On to the fashion, prepare your eye balls for some very lovely pieces.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate just how stunning those pieces were? From the dreamiest snakeskin print boots to seriously sequinned embellishment… Debenhams really does have something for everyone. I don’t think I’m alone when I say that when I think of Debenhams, an older, slightly more mature line of clothes come to mind. But actually, they really do have such  wide variety of brands meaning that they cater for every age and ever need. Henry Holland’s collection especially brings that, young, fresh, cool feel to the store.
Homeware time. Or what I like to call, Bloggers paradise…
Copper homeware
#CopperGoals You go Glen coco Debenhams! That is literally all.

Well, apart from just a couple of miscellaneous others…

As well as the most ridiculously dreamy clothes and homeware, Debenhams also had a little deli – with free sandwiches, salads, the best elderflower apple drink I’ve ever tasted and so much more – as well as an Insomnia coffee kiosk (which will soon be sold in Debenhams if I’m correct… I’m probably not). Plus, gel nails… Debenhams, you did so, so well!

So, this brings me to the end of my little “Yo Debenhams, fancy being BFF’s”/boring OOTD/what’s on my face type post. I had such a lovely time at the event so I really hope you enjoyed reading about it.

I just wanted to quickly squeeze in an apology for a slight lack of/delay in posts. I’ve finally got my shit together transferred my custom domain, which is great. What isn’t great however, is the fact that Bloglovin take a lifetime to actually get back to you and transfer over the accounts on there. So apologies for any quiet periods, I promise – slightly shoddy – service will resume soon. πŸ˜‰

As always, thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!

  2. I swear to god, if I wore what you did, I'd look like an absolute twat yet you look amazing! Swear you could wear a binbag and still look hot! How gorgeous are those flowers by the way? And the coats are lovely too.. although, I'm going to keep thinking (praying) about summer before I think about Autumn πŸ˜‰ xxx
