Fashion blogger event at Jules B in Jesmond

Apologies about there being no new post last week, but I have been so busy with college work! About a month ago, I received an invite to a fashion blogger event at a designer boutique in Jesmond. I had never heard of Jules B beforehand but then again, I haven't really explored Jesmond much, so I was excited to go and see what it was like.

What I wore






I wore my new Ruby &Frank purchase, which are these abstractly patterned trousers by a brand called 'Influence', they are such a soft, silky fabric, which is so comfortable to wear! I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit minimal, so I paired the trousers with a black lace top from Zara, my H&M blazer and low black heels, which I got from Warehouse a couple of years ago. I also borrowed my mum's statement necklace, as I knew the muted pinks, greys, blues and purples would go well with my outfit. To add a pop of colour, I wore 'Daisy Days' nail varnish, from Rita Ora's collection with Rimmel London. In terms of make-up, I used more bronzer than usual, seeing as it was an evening event, and I opted for a more nude smokey eye, using the Topshop palette 'Subversive'. I bought this palette with a voucher I had, last time I went into Newcastle with Caroline, and I love the shades in it! I paired this with a nude lip and backcombed my hair slightly, to create a more voluminous side ponytail. (Which definitely deflated by the end of the event)

The event

My sense of direction is awful, so despite getting lost several times on the way to the event (even using Google Maps didn't help much!), I did eventually find the shop. When I arrived, I was given a glass of Prosecco and was left to wander around and look through the stunning array of clothes.

I am in love with the Vivienne Westwood rings 


Senso Valleri Leopard Print Heels, which I wish I was cool enough to pull off
After the other bloggers arrived (there was four of us in total), we were given a really fascinating talk by Hayley, who is in charge of styling and sourcing the new pieces and designers, about different A/W trends, new designers in their collection and what she thought the key pieces for the new season were.
The other bloggers who attended were all really lovely, although I spoke to Natalie the most, so didn't get to know Kitty and Alexis very well, but they all have lovely blogs which I have enjoyed reading since! The other girls came more prepared than me, with notebooks and pens to write down details about designers and different pieces down in, woops, so I will make sure to be more prepared for events in the future. I think I can be somewhat forgiven, however, seeing as I came almost straight from college.
At the end of the evening, we were kindly presented with a goody bag each, containing a gorgeously soft Pashmina scarf, and a silver, or gold, bracelet. The latter of which I have worn a lot since the event!
Thank you to the girls at Jules B for inviting me, putting on such a good event and being so lovely!

Until next time,
