Last week I was invited to the Missguided SS14 blogger event, so I travelled up to London Wednesday afternoon, excited to see the new collection. This was one of the first blogger events I have attended, apart from working at events with Motel Rocks, so I was pretty excited and a bit unsure of what to expect.
The event was held in The Music Room, just behind Bond Street and was a large exhibition space with several rails showcasing what we can expect from Missguided this Spring/Summer. Two particular trends jumped out at me straight away, one was festival style, think fringing, kimonos, draped sleeves and plenty of denim, the other was pastels, lots of 60's inspired shapes, colours and prints. I had a good look through all of the items and was pleasantly surprised at the quality, especially keeping in mind the price of your average Missguided piece. The brand seems to have really upped their game in the past year, I remember when I first discovered them a few years ago the site mainly consisted of body con dresses and I rarely found anything I liked, however this collection has got me really excited for what to expect from them in the future - on trend pieces that are unique and individual rather than just copies of more expensive high street stores.
I definitely plan on buying both of these items as soon as they're released!
As well as getting excited over the new collection I was also pretty excited by the cocktail bar! My favourite cocktail had to be the Alexa which was a gin & elderflower drink and I had a good few along with the gorgeous mexican inspired snacks that were floating around.
I took a quick picture of my outfit before I left for the event, I wore the lovely sun and moon print top from Motel Rocks with a Topshop skirt and my Dr Marten shoes. I have been a bit shy with outfit posts recently because I am extremely self conscious at the moment of my figure, i've joined a gym and am on a diet so hopefully after losing a few pounds I will be back to snapping what i'm wearing all the time!
