• John Lewis Chelmsford Bloggers Event

    John Lewis Chelmsford Bloggers Event Its been a while since I shared one of my blogger expeditions with you, so here we go. This month, I attended the first ever bloggers event organised by John Lewis Chelmsford. John Lewis is a department store that is home to well known premium quality fashion, beauty, electrical and technology, home improvement and financial services brands that share an equal taste in quality and style.

    About The Event

    The event was organised to showcase the new and up coming collections of the various brands in store. As you may imagine, I was thrilled to uncover what was new in store across fashion brands like Boden, Finery, Ralph Lauren, Trilogy and also, John Lewis’ own brands Modern Rarity, And/Or, Kin among others. There were displays for Jewellery, makeup, beauty, travel and lifestyle brands like Claudia Bradby Jewellery, Liz Earle, Urban Decay, Charlotte Tilbury and Kuoni. I loved interacting with the brands and also noticed how the different pieces  across the exhibition worked cohesively together.

    The John Lewis Chelmsford store is situated on Bond street, a thriving retail and leisure location, not too far from the city centre. It has twenty shop units and overlooks river Chelmer. The event was hosted at the Benugo bar within the John Lewis, Chelmsford complex, where attendants could refresh themselves with beverages and a selection of canapés. The layout was easy to manoeuvre, there was also an instagrammable flower- clad photography wall that drove a lot of bees in that direction to take some shots.


    For my outfit of the day, I wore a trendy mid length shirt dress. I got the dress from zara a while ago. The dress spots a sprinkling of flowers over thin stripes and a gorgeous twisted knot detail at the front. I however cinched in the waist with a denim cummerbund because I wasn’t feeling the loose fit that evening. I completed the look with a bucket bag and pair of gold mules.

      What?!?! I absolutely love the idea of combining a blogging event with retail stores! I haven’t ever heard of this being done, but I’d definitely go if there was something like this offered in my area. Looks like you had a great time and you looked fantabulous! Can’t say I’m much of a fashionista, but you sure are!
