It is hard to believe it but Autumn is just around the corner and so are the new fashion trends! See my new season wardrobe picks from Hamish Munro in Aberdeen. I was lucky enough to be invited, with fellow Aberdeen bloggers, to discover the world of brands such as Miss Dee, Gabor, QUI, Hispanitas, Pikolinos, Part Two, Unisa and more. Do you follow me on Instagram? If not, do it now and you will know first hand what I am up to! Sometimes you will also be able to spot some of the bloggers that I am friends with.
I could not say no to the chance to explore the newest Autumn Winter collections, have an opportunity to update my seasonal look with new finds, and to see lovely fellow bloggers! As I stepped inside I could not help but wonder why I have never visited Hamish Munro before! Most of the brands were exactly what I am looking for from fashion: good quality, well-designed, smart, and functional.
Enough of talking! Let me show you the world of brands in Hamish Munro with my favourite picks!
1. Brodie Cashmere - I could not believe how warm it feels!
2. QUI - Easily my number one that goes straight to my Christmas Wish List. Ideal for windy walks.
3. QUI - Extremely Cosy Scarf/Shawl in one of my favourite shades of grey colours, no pun intended.
Comfy shoes in my size, something I do not find everyday, believe me! I was very surprised to say that some of the brands at Hamish Munro start from a size 2 and they do have them in stock! I have a confession to make, which I probably should not as next time you see me you will look at my feet. Most of my shoes are too big for me! I am only a size 2 1/2 sometimes almost size 3, which makes buying the correct size tricky. I can forget about buying my size on sale. This never happens! Thankfully I am a woman so I do not have to listen to awkward jokes about feet size.
Nova Gifts who is also part of Aberdeen West End Association bringing independent businesses together, who also prepared a surprise for all of us!
All gifts were different so we did not know who will receive what. Some girls received scarfs and gloves, clutch bags and gloves... It started to feel very much like Christmas! It must be fate as in my bag I found... Almost as is the Universe is determined to remind me to start wedding preparations!I am getting married! My engagement ring will be safe and sound every night on my Bling Ring Dish.
Cheeky card from Nova Gifts. They know exactly how I feel every Friday!Miss Dee surprised us all with a set of jewellery from their newest collection. Nordic, minimalistic yet eye-catching style is definitely something for me.
Steff found in her bag lovely golden rose one. Just look at that smile! Christmas did come early indeed!
This is basically exciting me when I discovered that my bag has also a scarf in my favourite colour dirty, subtle pink from Part Two! If you never met me in person you probably do not know that small things like that can get me really, really, ridiculously excited. I am one of the people who thinks that the glass is always half full and instead of moaning that I only found a pound instead I am ecstatic, that I spotted it in a grass. Childish maybe, but this childish excitement is something I would never change in myself. Life is so much more colourful this way!
Other jewellery pieces that also caught my eye were also very unique, which is a big advantage. Aberdeen is quite small so often there is someone wearing very similar accessories and clothes to you. Standing out can be tricky so Hamish Munro orders only a few items from each collection to make sure that its customers are standing out from the crowd in a good way!
I know someone who would just love to receive this necklace. Adding it to my mental gift list.
Of course I could not forget absolute bloggers' choice from this event! Hat with fluffy pompons! Correct me if I am wrong but I do not think there was even one of us who did not want to buy one of the hats! They come in four different colours. Snowboarding season will be so much fluffier!
