Penneys Autumn/Winter 16 Preview


There I am delighted with life


Hello, I hope all is good.  Well this is one event that I am very excited to blog about. On Thursday 16th June I attended the Primark Press Day for Autumn\Winter 16. (Still pinching myself)  I was so excited to attend as I have always been a Penneys lover and over the years their collection had grown and developed into a look that can be mistaken for high end. 

For this post I have mixed images I took at the press day with images as art of the PR package from Penneys. Let me know what your favourite look is, just comment below.

When I first started blogging I would see other bloggers attending their press days and I would say WOW that is where I want to go. It was definitely one of my blogging goals and it has happened. So always push, connect and work hard. 

On the press day itself the room was setup with clothing, accessories, kidswear and homeware. Showcasing the pieces that will be hitting stores for Autumn Winter, I literally wanted to take home all of it home, from the clothing right down to the accessories, all of the pieces are beautiful.

"For Autumn Winter 2016, Primark channels a diverse range of trends to cover all fashion tastes and lifestyles. On-the-go, city life is at the forefront of the collections with influences evident from many eras."

Various themes run through the collection, you will get a sense of these when you see the clothing. You can stick to one or take elements from each to create your perfect look for AW16.

Winter Garden:


This collection is very ladylike and chic. It embodies layering, a trend that is always on point for Autumn\ Winter, especially with our unpredictable weather. A layering feature of this trend, can be as simple as wearing a tee under a slinky spaghetti strap dresses. It also features faux fur, this is another trend that comes back year after year. Chunky winter knits, blouses and patterned florals are all part of the winter garden. Accessorise with over sized earrings, mini croc bags and berets. This look is not being  polished , it's about being mismatching and mixing the various elements up to create your look.

Downtown: 

This is 90's nostalgia but with a modern twist so do not panic especially, if you were a 90's child like me. This trend is laid back and for the sneaker loving girl. Key pieces include, the varsity jacket, ribbed knitted tube dress and check coat. Other features include, sports luxe, puffa jackets, slogan jerseys, shell tracksuits and sporty bombers. Accessories to pull it all together include chokers, trainers and backpacks.

Studio 54

Bringing you right back in time, this collection is perfect for the festive season. The range features sequins and the mini is back with a bang and will be perfect to pair with over the knee boots.The blouse is a key piece which has either pussy-bow or high necked ruffles in shiny gold or silver fabrics. We cannot have a Studio 54 trend without the faux fur coat and its back of course. Plush velvets are featured  in berry tones, pinks and navy. It is very feminine as the collection is soft and floaty. One theme I was definitely loving at the press day.

Artisan:

This collection features the bohemian trend. With clashing prints, bold colours, patchwork detailing, embroidery and tapestry all form parts of the detail, especially on denim and knitwear. The pleated midi skirt still features in a metallics, with floor sweeping military coats, finished off with cosy knitted pieces.

Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 


I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

On Thursday 2nd  June I went to visit venue number two, the breathtaking Ardgillan Castle. Located between Balbriggan & Skerries. If you have ever visited here you will understand what I mean. Everytime I go to Ardgillan I literally fall in love with it all over again. Whether I go for coffee in the tea rooms, bring my daughters to the  playground or just walk around the grounds. I adore it and Ardgillan was recently featured on Lovin Dublin as the best park in Dublin to visit, now that's pretty cool.

So onto the beautiful Castle, I met with Ann-Marie and Danielle and we chatted about the venue …
