Bath Fitting Room - #DuoBootTribe Blogger Event!

Monday 27 October 2014

One of the many perks of being a Bristol fashion blogger, is that I get to attend local blog events and hang out with some of my favourite south west bloggers! A few weeks back I hopped on a train and headed to the #DuoBootTribe event, held at DUO's Bath fitting room

I visited DUO earlier in the year during the Bath in Fashion blogger preview, where I remember drooling over their SS14 footwear. I was excited to head back to the store and discover which boot tribe I belonged to! I had a sneaky suspicion which camp I'd fall into, but had fun browsing their latest AW14 styles while I socialised and sipped on some bubbles. Tasty.

Every DUO shoe is available in 3 different widths which is pretty incredible! I had no idea which width I needed but the extremely helpful DUO girls sized me up and we discovered I needed a narrow boot. In the end I opted for these rawrsome Morton Biker Boots. Perhaps I could've went for something a bit more adventurous but I wanted to pick a style I could wear every day... The Morton boots are so me!

At the end of the night (rather unsurprisingly), the ankle boot was crowned the most popular style with a whooping 60% of us joining the ankle boot tribe. I guess most of us are just Alexa Chung wannabes. ;)

During the night I had a good ole chat with some of my favourite blogger babes, including Megan of The Briar Rose, SJ of Ship-Shape and Bristol Fashion and the always lovely Lorna of Raindrops of Sapphire (pictured above).

Huge thanks to DUO and Octane PR for inviting me, I had an absolute blast and I can't wait to feature my new boots in an outfit post!

Do you own any DUO boots? Which boot tribe do you belong to?

  1. I do like a nice ankle boot, and I'm looking forward to wearing my over the knee boots more this autumn! Great to see there's more SW events going on like this - fabulous :)

  13. I've been going to Duo, and sending clients there for years as the fit you get there is fantastic! I
    have to admit that the selection of styles didn’t used to be great, but they've really upped their game over the past couple of years! I LOVE the tall quilted biker boots and they have some awesome ankle boots in too. Sounds like a fun event, I would have loved to have gone!!

  14. I always struggle to find a tall pair that fits my legs. Glad to see the snug fit of the long boot in the photos. Time to get some shoe shopping!

  15. LOVE these boots! I'm normally an ankle book kinda gal, but those knee highs are calling me. Strangely enough just today I was thinking I really want to try out a pair of knee highs then I stumbled upon these - fate?!

  16. I am desperate for a good pair of biker boots for the Winter months, to make my dresses a bit more weather approproate. I love that Duo pair, so simple and wearable!
    You are one lucky girl T :)
