boohoo a/w press day



Ended up at the Boohoo A/W Press day yesterday,  Boohoo is a brand I probably wouldn't have bought from purely as in my head its a tacky/sparkly/market stall kinda vibe. Although I do visit the website regularly and find stuff I like I'm always put off because I cant see it in person before buying. Was pleasantly surprised with what they had to offer though! I think they have the A/W trends down, you know the 60's and 70's look and then the whole grungy style. They have some absolutely gorgeous fur coats as well as this lovely ombre grey maxi skirt which is to die for! I love their choice is prints like the polka dots and the Mui Mui style bird print jacket!

Its hard going to press days on your own because its near impossible to hold a bag and a camera as well as a item of clothing! So hence why there are so few individual shots! They gave me a voucher to use to get some of their stuff, so I think Im going to wait till some more of the A/W stuff filters out! From what I see the quality is pretty good, the same as all the sort of high streets shops so I wouldnt worry about it!

  1. im sort of like you when it comes to boohoo. i look on their website a lot and ive ordered a few things from them, but they never seem to be as good as i thought they would be and the quality not amazing so i sort of put of buying from them as i cant see it in person. but if you think the quality is improved maybe i will buy one or two things from the a/w bits when they are released to see :)
    from these pictures some of the stuff looks real nice :) cant wait to have a browse when its all released :) x

  3. I hate buying offline because I prefer to have a feel of things and the majority of the time try things on :)

  5. i've bought off boohoo quite a few times because of the price as it was really good value (mainly summer shorts/playsuits etc) and they arrived at a really speedy time so i would recommend!

    i love both your LLYMLRS and ETC LLYMLRS, they're both brilliant!

  8. Such pretty pictures! Some of their items are great for designer/celeb style on the cheap and some of the stuff in these photos look lovely. Might have to have a little wander over to their website.

    Much Love,

  9. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Boohoo collection as well. It appears that they got some of the latest trend down to a tee.

  11. Completely agree with you on wouldn't of though about buying from them online. I think they could photography the clothes and make their layout a lot better to make it look more enticing too. Also having no idea on if they're sizing is legit as well. However they do seem to give a lot more value for money then some of the online shops out there at the moment.
    Your pictures have come out lovely.

  13. I've bought from Boohoo before and didn't return anything as I loved it all! Especially my steel toed boots which are my favourite shoes <3 Some of those fur coats look lovely so I'm definately going to keep my eye on them in the coming months :] x

  22. I think the same of boohoo, i just think it sounds really cheap and nasty and have never been proven wrong by the fact you have to order online. Some of the clothes in your photos are lovely though, I'll need to have a little look sometime soon x

  23. I've lusted after a few things on boohoo before. I took the plunge to one item last year and I have to say I was disappointed by the sizing which came up quite skimpy.
    Hopefully this isn't a problem with the A/W collection because I'm already lusting :)

  25. Gosh, you are sooo lucky! I love everything as far as I can see, I've been wanting to order from boohoo for ages but I just never get around to doing it. But I fell in love with their new knitwear pieces, so I think I might order soon! <3
