My first press day was to view the Autumn/Winter 11 collection by Next. I was as excited to meet fellow bloggers and meet the Next team as much as I was to see their new offerings. It wasn't until later when editing and choosing photographs for this post, that I realised my eye had been firmly drawn to Next's homeware and fashion accessories.
I loved the way the homeware had been set out, a topsy-turvy tumble of different pieces and accessories for the home, it's the little details that make a home individual and there was a good selection to choose from. Fashion-wise, the shoes, handbags, hats and scarves were personal favourites amongst themes of preppy, 70's bohemian as well as those classics Next are so well known for.
This being my first event, I'm sorry to say I did not photograph the people around me, concentrating instead on what you see here. My blogging life so far has been rather covert, it was slightly strange to be in a room filled with other bloggers going about their business just like me. But to see a little more of the day, check out this post by Sophie.
A big thanks to Eleanor, Vicki and Jenny for the invite and arranging my trip.
