Autumn preview | The Norfolk BoutiqueWednesday, September 24, 2014
It was an exciting evening a few days ago when I went along to the Norfolk Boutique Autumn preview. There is something really inspiring about entering the new season and going shopping for all the new pieces that will be added to my wardrobe over the coming weeks. This season it's all about the richer earthier colours with a good amount of black, white and grey thrown in. A good splash of red goes a long way.
I had a good look round the new season clothes and have to say it was thoroughly delightful; so many pieces that could have merrily come home with me! The fine knit jumpers were soft and warm - something I really need to get to grips with this year. Both the raspberry red and the houndstooth ones both catching my eye; to be worn with a pair of leather skinny trousers or some worn in jeans. The thicker cosy patterned jumper looked so warm I could maybe just hibernate in there 'til Spring comes back around and my favourites (not pictured) were the the thick cable knitted jumper dresses in cream as well as navy. Just give my opaques and a belt then I'm fit to go.
It wouldn't be right not to mention the pretty, pretty dresses. The black and white lace dress absolutely stole my heart with it's elegance and simplicity, I kept going back to have another look (we've all been there) and hold it up to the mirror with my hopeful face poking through. The red lace dress was a stunner if you're not afraid of a generous dose of colour, certainly one to lust after for sure. The twenties style dresses were quite the unusual pieces - definitely safe that nobody is turning up at a party in the same dress and perfectly modest. The Masato dress was a stunner, such a quality piece; someone is going to feel a million dollars wearing that number.
Of course there were skirts and trousers too, with some gorgeous blouses and tops. The white lace top is a dream, isn't it?
And lastly, aside from the beautiful scarves which I shall continue to moon over, the handbags and clutches. What can I say? I'm turning into a handbag addict. The green one was a beauty and the LAMB bag I loved so much before is now down to under £100 - why didn't I just buy one and be done with it?! Such a love for it. I didn't leave empty handed but can you guess what I couldn't leave without?
The waterfall coat is such a classic, quality piece which would last a lifetime; looking good year after year so if you're looking to invest in a coat then this one is my top choice. The black jacket was another piece I couldn't resist, the details make it unique and it felt like such a warm comfortable outer.
If you want to feast your eyes on the new collections at the Norfolk Boutique then you'll find them on the High Street, Coltishall b near Norwich NR12 7AA
