My outfit for an ASOS Meal..

So me and my boss Pete took ASOS out for a belated Christmas meal...we couldn't all get a date together before Christmas!
We ventured over to MOMO's for some amazing food and wine, the room smelt amazing as soon as you walked in and the food had so much flavour to it! I'd highly recommend for a nice meal out!
Anyway here is what I wore...

Photobucket

Necklace - Topshop
Bangles - Vintage
Jacket - Topshop
Fingerless gloves (old gloves with the tips cut off)
Shoes - Asos Ames shoes
Scarf - Topshop

I'm loving my new topshop scarf - I'm throwing it over everything and it's defiantly that extra bit of a winder blocker that I need right now!
I'm hitting the hay for an early nights sleep this evening!

Motel and me at Bread and Butter Berlin - Day 1

So here I am again.. the trade shows seem to roll round every 5 minutes! Not that I am complaining about getting to go away, but it feels like you never actually left in the first place!

Photobucket

I think our stand gets strong each time we do a show! Last time we had new stand builders develop and design a new stand for us with interchangeable sides and signs and we took on our winning stripe design and it looks amazing! We even had hand made seats made with the stripes on! I'm wondering if they'll notice one go missing..!! Here's some shots from the day..

Also here's a sneak peak at our new swimwear range that's due to launch later this year - we are also developing a denim range, bags, shoes, belts, jewellery etc... we're taking over the world!! haha

After a long day, I think i'm too tried to party. Another trade show called Seek is holding an opening party in our hotel tonight, so I think we'll stay there and keep it low key!
I'm going to try and walk round the show tomorrow and sneak a peak at some stands.. but for now I'll show you my outfit choice for today...

I'm wearing new Motel pieces - available April + Asos Ames shoes in Navy

Scar to my face..

So I havent really posted about Christmas and New Year...A belated Happy Christmas and New Year to you all, I hope you had lots of good times with all your loved ones!
I had a truely great time away!
I stayed at my mums from Fruday 23rd for a week, before embarking on a 4 and a half hour journey to Cardigan is west wales for 4 days. I had an amazing time and my and my friends held a trash fashion party for new years eve.

The only downside was on new years day I cracked my head on laminate flooring! I've been scared of being scared on my face and had it glued back together with butterfly stitches, but almost two weeks on and i'm pleased to report its hardly even noticeable! I'm going to get myself some bio-oil to try and help the scar heal further, but any tips anyone has! Please let me know!

I'm also in the middle of a 'I don't know what to do with my hair' phase! I'm sick of having to spend so long getting ready every day! A hat has become an extension of my head! But I'm currently getting some hair sewn together for me for extensions and I may venture into the world of wigs!

Day 2 and 3 of Motel Photo Shoots

As you know, the other day I uploaded some pictures from the first photo shoot I was helping at, which was for what Motel call their Capsule 3 of the year, which will drop with you guys in April
The this week on the Tuesday and Wednesday we shot again. The Wednesday was with Premier Model Jamie Gunns, who was just amazing and such a lovely girl, a pleasure to work with! You will of noticed her on Asos and shop direct etc. She was lovely to work with and she made all the clothes look amazing, I'm really excited to see what effect it will have on our web sales!

These images will start to hit our website next week, with stock that will be available straight away!

Then Wednesday we shot our wholesale PDF, this is a PDF we get to send round all our wholesale customer with a front and back image shot of the garment shape and one example print and then under neath is a list of all the colour options they can get it in. For this we used a Nevs model by the name of Magdalena,  who had possibly the best legs I have ever come across! Magdalena turned out to be lovely and worked amazing in the photos.. I think we'll defiantly keep her in mind for future shoots!

On the photo shoot for Motels April Lookbook

We shot the April Lookbook in Old street, London yesterday. A fun day and the images are looking great!  Up till now we've always shot the lookbooks over in Bali where the majority of our production is done and so it was great to be able to get involved over here in the UK!
Next week brings the wholesale PDF and the web shoot! I'm loving that we are getting to now use the pool of London model & stylist talent! This can only mean great things for Motel!
