The Clothes Show!



Today I was working at the Clothes Show, where I wore this sequin sweatshirt dress from La Redoute (£95 down to £66.50). I really like this dress. Whilst obviously it's totally OTT sequin wise, the sweatshirt style dresses it right down, so it's perfectly "do-able" in the day time. Not only that but the style is quite relaxed so it's comfortable. And warm too. A double winner!

It was a great day, with lots going on. I even managed a quick chat with Poppy Dinsey who runs the blog What I Wore Today. I remember seeing Poppy on "Lorraine" quite a while back now and thinking how articulate she was, so it was nice to say hello in person. She was lovely - very natural looking, very down to earth and with some great views on blogging - and in particular, cyber bullying.

I also saw someone from TOWIE, or Made in Chelsea, or something like that. I only know because there were loads of girls trying to get their photo taken with him. Tomorrow will be hugely busy so that should be fun. I'm really hoping that I can catch Caryn Franklin talking with Poppy and others on the Fashion Panel. Like many, I remember Caryn Franklin from the early days of the Clothes Show on TV. She has some great views on fashion so we'll see what she has to say......

    1. Hi Jules, it's quite generous and a fairly relaxed fit so you won't need to go up and if in between you could poss go down. It's in the sale too and if you're a new customer you can get an extra £15 off or email me for a code which I can send for the £15 off.

    2. Thank you Beth - I ordered one this morning along with a cashmere jumper that is a Christmas pressie for me and got a lovely discount on both. Looking forward to a sparkly and cosy Christmas. I love reading your blog and regularly have severe clothing envy. Keep up the good work and have a great Christmas :)

  2. Beth, you look fab. I love the dress and as you say, very wearable for daytime too. You posted about sequins in early November and mentioned the Topshop Juniper shoes. I fell in love at first sight, but they were out of stock in my size online. However, I finally managed to get them and will be wearing them next Saturday for a party. I will link back to your post but I wanted to say thank you for the inspiration, love Liz xxx

    1. Hi Honor - you've hit the nail on the head there. Sequins in a sweatshirt style gives you plenty of options. I'm going to wear it again tomorrow I like it so much!

    1. Hi Doty - that's very kind of you to say so but I'm not sure that it is entirely deserved. The dress, on the other hand, is beautiful! Beth :)
