|The Principles jacket of my dreams|
Autumn is finally here- I know I should really be still clinging on to the hope of some actual summer showing its face around Scotland but I have always been an Autumn gal, so I for one am happy when it is time to get proper layering on the go again. I adore the autumn colour scheme, the crispness in the air and getting to hide under big cosy jumpers while indulging in hot chocolates at any given opportunity. As always I know I can look to Debenhams mix of brands to help me pick out key pieces I am going to want in my winter wardrobe, and this years Autumn/ Winter showcase was no exception. Held in the gorgeous BlythswoodHotel, the brands on show had just the right mix of print and sequins in among really versatile pieces to keep your look fresh. It is too easy to fall into a style rut at this time of year, but the dark and gloomy mornings are no excuse to not stand out. Some absolute top picks for me this year were the Preen/Edition offering which featured some stunning textures ( and a stunning horse print dress), and the jaw droppingly gorgeous No 1. by Jenny Packham evening gowns that I am now dying to find occasion for.
The Nine by Savannah Millercollection was a newcomer to my radar that left a really lasting impression- featuring seriously wearable designs with some stunning sequin pieces that felt far more high end than their price points.
The beauty department were not one to fall behind either with new additions to the line up in the Argyle Street store from the likes of the much loved theBalm products, really catching my eye. Another stand out piece had to be the amazingly names ‘ Ross and Rachel’ blusher from Too Faced, and oh my lordy the new Miu Miu scent is needed just for the bottle! I also finally got my hands on the Urban Decay smoky palette which was just as I expected- Stunning.

We were treated to some stunning Lorraine Woods flowers on the way out of the event that were perfect for getting me right in that Autumn spirit and have lasted an insanely long time in my living room. Never mind to top it all off I got to spend some time with these mega babes, as always Debenhams puts on quite the show.
