TK Maxx A/W 2012 Preview at Somerset House!

Last Thursday, TK Maxx invited us to dinner at Tom's Kitchen in Somerset house. On show was a selection of A/W 2012 pieces for us bloggers to drool over.

We were introduced to all the hottest trends from this upcoming season and I snapped some pics of my favourites:

'English Heritage' - To me this is the THE trend for A/W. I'm a huge fan of tweed and like style queen Gwen Stefani, I always rock houndstooth in the colder months. I tried on a gorgeous Ralph Lauren herringbone jacket in TK Maxx last week (pray it's still there), which I can imagine pairing with some jodhpurs leggings and riding boots...Rah Rah dahhhling! ;)

Coat £99.99 - Ruffle Shirt £19.99 - Purple Skinny Jean £19.99

This Green Tweed Coat proved hugely popular with the bloggers. It's nicely lined & I really like the faux fur trimming. For £99.99 (instead of RRP £450.00) it's the perfect coat for keeping warm in winter while totally stylin'.

Another awesome trend is 'Bourgeois'. Lace, leather and embellishment are some of our all time favourite things (along with RPattz), we just love a bit of gothic romance! How cute is this quilted jacket? I had to fight the urge to runaway with it.

The spikey bra was possibly the most talked about piece of the evening, Lady Gaga would be proud! I wish I could pull it off, it would look awesome with some faux leather skinnies and the dreamy quilted jacket.

'Folklore' is a trend for the free spirited! Embrace your inner boho girl with chunky patchwork knits mixed with floaty lace dresses. It's all about layering and feeling care-free.

Caridgan £34.99 - Dress £19.99 - Leather Bag £49.99

I can't believe this yummy houndstooth cardigan is only £34.99! I'm definitely going to be working this trend, the model looks amazing.
Other trends to look for are Military, Modernist (60's retro prints/cuts), Empress (lots of embellishment, textured fabrics & digital prints) and Pastels (but with chunkier fabrics & faux fur).

Pictures: Me winning a £100 giftcard, nommy Rosemary Roasted Peppers, Becky & I.

It was really cool to meet loads of London bloggers including Becky from life.style.flash, Ree from ReallyRee.com & Lois from Bunnipunch. I had such a wonderful evening and the food was absolutely delicious. If you haven't been to Tom's Kitchen before then I would certainly recommend it, I can't wait to eat there again!

I must say a HUGE thank you to TK Maxx and Fluorescent PR for inviting us to the event and thanks again for the £100 giftcard. J and I will be having a mini splurge this week!

  11. I've never managed to find anything good in Tkmaxx :( maybe the one by me is pretty lame in terms of content, or maybe I just dont have the eye for it like you girls clearly do!! I love all the All Saints stuff you guys have found there :)

    Oh and Tara - I was working at Melbourne Uni for almost a year, and then backpacked up the east coast all the way to cape tribulation :) you were over there not so long ago right? It's been 5 years for me, and I always thought I would head back straight away and live out the rest of my days there! Unfortunately life isn't working out that way lol..an Aussie colleague offered me a job when he was moving back to brissy, but I had to turn it down!! Hardest. Decision. Ever!!! Do you see yourself going back there? Where were you based? Xxx

    1. WELL, Jade has a really good one whereas I have 3 but they are all hit or miss! I do love to rummage though! ;)

      Oooh wow, that's so cool! Melbourne is really pretty. I travelled from Darwin down to Sydney (I visted Melbourne too) and lived in Sydney for about 2 1/2 months. I loooved Sydney. I would definitely live there if it was in the UK haha! I think we'll go back one day to see what we missed but I think I'll head back to New Zealand first, have you been? My favourite country for sure! xoxo
