Harvey Nichols Trend Showcase

Last week myself and the gorgeous Laura from A Forte For Fashion headed to Harvey Nichols for a Trend Showcase evening. We had an amaaazzinggg time, filled with yummy canapés, a run down of the upcoming trends and developments at Harvey Nichols from their senior buying team, and about a million amazing items to lust over!   

The trend showcase included three very inspirational ladies indeed! First up was Anita Barr, the Group Buying Director, along with Olivia Richardson, the head of Womenswear Fashion Buying, and last but certainly not least, Tina Lamb, the Buying Manager for Shoes and Accessories (helloooo dream job!) They gave us the run down on the latest trends, with some very beautiful models strutting about in the most incredible outfits (those Stella Mccartney shoes in the top pic have been a firm item in my wish list for yonks now!) We also heard about some pretty exciting developments coming to Harvey Nichols, including a new app and a more personal shopping experience from the shop advisors, who are being trained to advice us all about what will best suit our body shapes. All in all it was a fab evening, and the ladies were all so lovely and seriously inspirational. 

This is the look I chose to wear for the event - I am still loving these shoes so much! They're proving to be the perfect pair to get me in heels again, but without a steep angle of anything too precarious to handle!

I am always mad about sleeveless coats for spring and summer as it means I don't have to give up layering completely! See below for my faves:
