AW12

Clearly, I've run out of titles for my press days posts. Who knows what I'll call it next week!
It seems weird to be looking at AW collections just as it's gotten warmer, but that's the way the fashion industry works, so here's a round up of my favourite collections that I've been checking out lately.

Dune and Bertie.
Sherin + shoes = happy. That was the main calculation while I headed to the gorgeous Dune showrooms to check out the upcoming collections from Dune, Bertie and Pied A Terre.
I love Dune and the collection is just as amazing as previous ones. I loved the more sparkly and shiny heels: perfect for a wedding or glam party.
Bertie is much more wearable for a daily basis, and we joked that it's the Blogger go-to shoe brand. I loved the Mary-Janes and there were a few burnt orange coloured shoes, which will be perfect for AW.

QVC
QVC have a massive selection of products online, but my heart truly belongs to their jewellery and beauty sections. My eye was immediately caught by the amazingly gorgeous crown. I was far to scared to touch it, especially since it was over £10,000 (we know I'm clumsy enough to break expensive stuff. I'm not even going to go into the story of how I got the big bruise on my knee). Anyway, the rest of the jewellery was so gorgeous and I do like a bit of bling. The bracelets were my favourite, and the necklaces were so pretty. Butler and Wilson is a personal favourite jewellery brand of mine and their pieces were stunning.

There was also a massive array of beauty products, and I had so much fun looking at all the products and finding out about al lthe brands. Brands that caught my eye were Laura Geller (amazing eyeshadows), Jemma Kidd (a great make up brand), Inika and bareMINERALS. They all have great make up products and I've tried many of them before so can tell you how amazing they are.
Elemis and Gatineau also had some great  face and skincare products on display. I've heard great things about Elemis so can't wait to try out some skincare.

Very
Very also have a lot of different brands and collections available online, so it's always fun to check out their new collections. They have 5 collections, named after cities, and London and Berlin were clear favourites of mine. The Love Label from Very is such a cool brand and have some great clothes. I can't wait to shop the brand.
I also got to check out the upcoming Fearne Cotton and Holly Willoughby lines. Again, both lines feature some stunning dresses and they're fantastic quality. I love how both collections have pieces that the girls will wear. Incidentally, I saw Fearne that evening at another launch, looking stunning.

Dorothy Perkins
Amongst all the AW collections, it was nice to take a break and head to DP HQ to check out pieces that we can wear now. There were some stunning pieces of jewellery and some perfect lightweight sandels, perfect to pair with maxi's or shorts/dresses. I loved the pale, light colours, and especially loved all the jewellery. The showroom was a stylists dream as everything looked gorgeous and you could esily pick out whole outfits together.

We also had hair stylist Ben Cooke, from Herbal Essences, on hand to give us hair makeovers and use products from their Tousle Me Softly range (which works like a charm). I had my hair curled, then had some of the cream put in my hair. I loved how my hair came out. It's such a summertime hair style as it's glam and easy to maintain. Can't wait to try it for myself.

Next
Held in the stunning Somerset House, Next is always a lot of fun. Alongside checking out some of the great new collection, I also got to hang with the super cool PR girls, other bloggy friends and they even had some great food on hand. I loved this upcoming collection. The shoes all looked stunning and I loved the colour scheme of the pieces. Along with some cool, daily wears, there was also a stunning occasion wear line that had some super glam shoes and dresses. There was also a lot of sequins to keep me very happy.

What do you think? Are you excited to wear sequins and attachable collars next season?

I can't think about AW yet, I've only just pulled my shorts from the bottom of the drawer.
I do look forward to seeing all the new arrivals appear online though :-)
