Feeling the summer vibes yet? You will after reading this post! As Summer Holiday season is right around the corner once again, it’s time to start planning for Summer 2017 wardrobe, packing your vacation essentials and updating your home with bright and light seasonal accessories. Where’s the one place you can grab all of these? Very. And it just so happens I’ve had a sneak peek of what you can grab in your summer one stop shop – including fashion, beauty, home wear, kids and accessories – this season, at the #VeryHoliday event at ShopDirect.
Very is a market leader in online shopping; they stock a wide range of products including fashion, beauty, home wear, kids and accessories, at a wide range of prices. From more affordable brands such as Fake Bake, Fashion Union and French Connection, to high end, luxury designer such as Armani, Anna Sui and Agent Provocateur, there’s really something for everyone at Very. This time, however, we were invited to the Shop Direct HQ to check out Very’s Holiday Shop Collection to help get us ready for our jollies.
When arriving to the event, we were greeted with a lovely summery soft drink (infused with fruit no less) and a selection of sunny snacks included some holiday themed cupcakes and sweets. Check out that octopus cupcake action! With refreshments in hand, we were able to sit and chat to other bloggers, talk about upcoming opportunities with the lovely Very team and, most importantly, see what Very had to offer as part of their Summer 2017 collection.
Very showcased a specially curated collection of new season homewear – perfect for some garden party inspiration – and fashion, including their great collection of Swimwear. With collections on show from some of their different brands including Very Exclusive and South Beach Swimwear, there was lots to see. My summer holiday wish list for my upcoming Cruise (only 40 days to go!) is now as long as my arm. Le sigh!
The #VeryHoliday press day proved that key fashion trends this summer will be bold palm prints, bright embroidery, bold pomp om accessories and, my favourite, nautical themed. (Remember, I’m going on that cruise!). Home wear wise, Aztec and Tropical prints are in – plus, fun bar accessories and cocktail umbrellas (of course!).
Over all, I had a lovely time at the Very Summer 2017 press and blogger day. It provided me with great inspiration for both my summer wardrobe and decorating my new home… And gave me the chance to chat to a brand which I hope to work with closely in the future. Fingers crossed!
