Some more for you from the Arcadia AW’14 press event. This post is all about some rather lovely jewels, heels, bags and boots that were a particular highlight for me.
Starting things off are these very stylish jewels and stunning extra long, green suede boots from Dorothy Perkins. These were an extra surprise because I generally skip past this label- but I was quite literally stopped in my tracks by the really fabulous selection of accessories. I’ll be making a rare visit to good old DP’s come Autumn to see what will actually make it home with me.
Next comes Freedom at Topshop. Never knowingly understated, this is THE label to hit for statement pieces that are always super hot and brilliantly blingy. This little number looks like wearing it might replace a heavy lifting session at the gym! I love the smokey shade of the gems, adding a touch of sophistication to an otherwise extra OTT number.
Topshop‘s shoes and bags are some of the best on the high street. Reflecting all the hottest Autumn directions and covering all occasions in a really creative and innovative way, the shoes on show at the press day were really exciting. As were the bags. We’re still good to be rocking backpacks come Autumn. Yay!
Finally, we have Miss Selfridge. When they get it right, they really, really get it right, and this is generally it’s embellished, beaded and embroidered womenswear but also with some surprisingly good accessories. I really loved the styling of this blue gemmed style, sitting really beautifully on this blue/grey, high sheen print and pale lilac faux fur. It’s like an Autumn mood board all by itself.
