#bloggersfestival: Meet the Brands

A&C: we recently posted a little teaser post, including some of the people we met at the bloggersfestival and a few selfies so now we would like to show you the brands that we met! Scarlett London did an amazing job at getting such lovely brands to showcase their new lines/products and we loved our little sneak peak into the Autumnal trends, here are our favourites/photos:

We started at Quiz Clothing and we loved their designs for next season especially a full length silver sequinned dress – unfortunately we cannot justify spending pennies on something we would probably end up wearing around the house, as we don’t go to many balls!

Urban Outfitters were next, and their Autumn collection looks AMAZING! Chloe fell in love with a beautiful monochrome jumper, which is definitely getting bought when it becomes available online. We love UO anyway, so it was a massive treat to see their future lines before they are released.

Izabelle Hammon were doing manicures with their beautiful nail stickers, unfortunately our nails had studs and glitter on (of course) so we couldn’t have ours done but we got a few treats to take away and try at home.

We then got to try out Bee Good‘s current range of skincare products (who apparently started out by making the products in their kitchen!) and got to take away a lovely honey and vanilla lip balm (and Annie obviously got a bee shaped biscuit to eat later) a review of which will be coming your way soon.

Ecco and Minimum were showcasing their products, and although they weren’t somewhere we normally shop we have definitely changed our minds! Just look at this amazing jacket from Minimum and the Ecco shoes Annie wanted to steal!

We then saw Want Her Dress and their team were lovely. Carol, the owner was especially lovely and we spent ages talking to her about the amazing collection they had brought with them to showcase. They are also running a campaign around body shapes, and dressing for your shape. Want Her Dress aim to dress real women, with real shapes – something we agree with due to our extra lady lumps (sorry this is a little blurry, we had just finished out champange cocktails and it’s the only photo we had of this brand). This was Annie’s favourite dress – a pleated maxi dress in a gorgeous deep green.

Then, we met the Very team and we chatted to a lovely man (we didn’t get his business card which is sad, cos he was nice) and tried to steal (jokes) a dress which Annie was in love with and some sequinned shorts which had Chloe’s name all over them. You seriously need to keep an eye out for their new Autumn clothes as there were so many beauties, we were given a voucher for £10 off their website and I think it will be put to very good use!

We then went to visit Lee Stafford (not Lee himself, alas) where we could discuss our hair problems (basically we have too much/crazy hair) and what products would help. This was great, as it meant everyone got personalised advice and could take a few treats home to try too.

Oriflame were also showcasing some of their beautiful products, which we got some lovely photos of. The colours of the nail varnishes look AMAZING and Francesca was super helpful, talking us through the products and just having a lovely chat in general.

We then met Natalie from Search Laboratory – a digital markteing agency who specialise in PPC and SEO. Natalie was so helpful, explaining about all of the internetty stuff which we definately need to know more about. Again, she was so lovely to chat to, which was one of our favourite things about the event – the fact that people just want to talk and get to know who you are, what you’re about and about your blog.

We apologise for all the photos/rambling, but we hope you enjoyed a little sneak peak into the Autumn trends/lines that will be coming available! Let us know what you think #twolittleowls

*A special thank you to Jennifer from Search Labs for permission to use some of their amazing photos.

Annie’s Autumn Fashion Wishlist

A: Following Chloe’s wishlist last week, I’ve created a wishlist with all of my Autumn favourites. I love jumpers, knitwear, woolly tights and boots so this is my favourite time of year (well almost, technically it should still be sunny in September but its pouring with rain as I type this).

cesia_front

Louche Cesia Floral Dress – originally £55 but just £20 in the sale from Joy the Store

I really love this dress and cannot believe what a bargain it is. It is a little summery for Autumn, but team it with a bright knit and some navy woolly tights and I’d be good to go. I think it would be super wearable and the print is just too pretty to resist.

dovana_mustard_fr2

Louche Dovanna Jumper – £42 from Joy the Store

This is from the same site as the floral dress (you really need to go check it out, I basically want to buy everything from there), and I LOVE it. I love layering jumpers over dresses, and this would look so good with the floral dress I’ve chosen. It is a little on the pricey side, but it definitely counts as an investment.

Helen Berman Maribo Cable Knit Beanie – £40 from Urban Outfitters

A hat in an Autumn wishlist is a must, and this beanie is amazing. Again, it is a little pricey but I love it. So that’s totally allowed.

Road Trip Suede Desert Boots – £55 from ASOS

I’ve been after some boots in this style for so long and I love these so much. Perfect for dressing up an outfit or everyday wear.

*Obviously as I (unfortunately) do not own these items, these photos are from the companies websites 🙂

Chloe’s Autumn Fashion Wishlisht

C: I know, I know… it is still August/Summer and we should still be sunning it up in our bikinis and shorts. Unfortunately it is cold and rainy here so I got excited and created my Autumn wish list! I love this time of year, especially in terms of fashion. Cardigans and bobble hats as well as being snuggled up in bed with a hot chocolate – what more could you want! So here are my four top fashion picks for the coming season:

photo-19

*Obviously as I (unfortunately) do not own these items, these photos are from the companies websites 🙂

Urban Renewal Vintage Surplus Beanie Hat in Olive – £12 from Urban Outfitters. I love woolly hats and way too many. I do not have one in this amazing Olive colour though which is perfect for Autumn. I definitely need this. Especially to go with my new hair. 

Pins & Needles Chenille Tassle Kimono in Plum – £48 from Urban Outfitters. Knitted AND has tassels?! I haven’t got a maroon/plum coloured cardigan (kimono if you are a grown up) and it is one of my favourite colours! This is perfect for adding to just jeans and a tshirt to add some style or over a dress as I would wear it.

Dr Martens Castel Boots in Cherry Red – £100 from Dr Marten. I love Dr Martens and have wanted some for years! Then everyone started wearing them and I got put off. However, I love this pair so much I NEEEED them. A black pair would be more sensible… but as I hate stuff matching I would wear these with pretty much everything anyway.

People Tree Organic Cotton Smock Dress In Check Print – £65 from Asos. This dress is the perfect shape to flatter my figure. I would wear this with tights, boots and a cardigan (so probably everything else mentioned in this wish list) as the perfect Autumn dress. 

I hope you guys have enjoyed reading my wish list as much as I did making it! If it wasn’t for buying a house next week… I would have bought all of these already! Let me know what you think! #twolittleowls

Chloe’s Spring Wishlist

C: Following Annie’s wish list (you can look at it here) I thought I had better share what I have been lusting after ready for Spring!

20140316-170647.jpg

1. No. 7 Pop and Glow Cream Blush Stick in Rose Blossom (£9.95). I have not used many cream blushers before but they are something I would like to start trying in the summer when I usually wear less make up! An easy and quick application in this beautiful colour would be a welcome addition to my make up bag!

2. Vintage O & O ’90’s Button dress (£45 from Urban Outfitters). I love this sort of dress for the warmer months, strappy dresses don’t suit my bingo wings so this perfect for me! It can also be worn with tights and a cosy cardi for those chilly nights out!

3. Ray Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses (price varies depending on choice!). I love the mock tortoise shell pattern ones and I really need a good pair for the summer. I am just worried as usually I break (sit on) all of my sunglasses so I don’t want to waste my money!

4. Essie Spring Nail Collection (£7.99 at Boots). This bad boy would not be in my wish list if it hadn’t been out of stock! Essie are my favourite nail polishes and these will be perfect to take you through from Spring to Summer!

So whats on your Spring wish lists? #twolittleowlsblog
