next s/s11 blogger event.

A jumble of photographs (and a little video!) of my day at the Next blogger event in Leicester on Tuesday.Photobucket

I should have been at college on Tuesday, getting on with my artwork and sitting by myself on my lunch break with a Starbucks coffee and a Pret sandwich, but instead I was having the most lovely day at Next HQ sipping yummy drinks, eating canapés, trying on clothes and viewing Next's S/S11 collection alongside twenty-something other bloggers. After an early morning First Class train ride to Leicester and then a coach ride to the headquarters, we were welcomed with breakfast nibbles and a presentation of Next's main trends and pieces for the upcoming season. Even though I'm more of an A/W girl, I very much adored all of the sheer shirts and dresses, pleated skirts and delicate floral prints that were featured throughout, though with my I-only-wear-neutral-colours self I wasn't at all keen on the use of neon and clashing colours. We were then set a style challenge in which we were given a key piece from the new collection to style with anything we could find in the mock shop. I styled a lovely pair Rosa Trousers, keeping it quite simple with a sheer Slouch Shirt, a favourite amongst us bloggers, and a small clutch bag. Flared trousers aren't something I would ever have considered wearing, but I suprisingly really like them, and will definitely experiment with wearing something similar in the future. After we completed our looks we all had a mini photoshoot (you can see my pictures here) and then a videoshoot which you can see above. Do excuse how awkward and stiff I am in the video, I was just so nervous about being put on the spot and being filmed in front of people! Hehe. I have to say, this was definitely the best blogger event I have been to, Next genuinely seemed to care about us bloggers, really taking into consideration our opinions and feedback. Thank-you to Jenny from Jam and Next for inviting me along, I had such a lovely time! Love, Jazzabelle.

  8. Looks like you had a fantastic day and I love how you styled the shirt. I think it remains similar to your personal style and I like how the sheer shirt makes it a little edgy. You look lovely in the video too and don't at all seem awkward!

  18. You look stunning in those trousers! I love that slouch shirt too. I had a look at it on the website but the photo looks awful - you make it look a lot more stylish!

    I've got a gift voucher for Next that needs spending and has been sitting in my room for ages because I never really think to shop there. I think I might go in and have a look now though!

You were great in the video & I really like how you styled your outfit :) I actually worked at the Next HQ a few times on various temping jobs a few years ago (my parents live nearby)...it really seems like a good place to work & everyone I met there was lovely.
