I said to the lovely sales assistant in the O Bag Store in Touchwood Solihull, “can I look at those blue sunglasses please?” “Of course!” she said. The minute she put them into my hands I think I let out a little squeal of delight! “They are velvet!” I said! Who would have thought it! Velvet being THE fabric of the season is one good reason for getting excited in my book. The photos don’t do them justice as the lenses are iridescent too. You’ll just have to go into store and check them out for yourself! The whole concept behind the sunglasses is the same as their bags. All the components are fully interchangeable so you can really have fun customising your very own pair.
The new season is upon us and it’s a time to start looking at what’s out there. Some seasons speak to me more than others and I’ve got a horrible feeling this Autumn/Winter might get expensive. I do love winter fashion. I think it’s the different textures and soft, luxurious fabrics. Think cashmere, wool, leather,faux fur and suede. It’s a time to layer up. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sun too but there’s just something about coats and boots that draws me in! The new season is a time to drink it all in and enjoy shopping or just window shopping with renewed enthusiasm. Touchwood Shopping Centre Solihull is a great place to just have a relaxed day, perhaps with a friend, shopping. Explore all the great little independent boutiques we have on offer or maybe stop for a cheeky one at the new Pop-Up Prosecco bar?
Today was the launch of the new products available at O bag. The variations are endless and it’s definitely best to go and explore for yourself and see the designs in person. Ask the staff to show you how it all works! You might remember my O Bag Beach that I blogged about all summer and used nearly everyday on the beach on holiday? Well, now there’s even more to see in store.
I hope you enjoyed reading the blog. What’s your favourite season? Will you buy into velvet? Since my last blog about an outfit I have found a few hero pieces that I will share with you soon as the weather cools down a little. There’s a jumper, or two! A Birthday coat and taking “sock” boots for a spin! Exciting stuff! I might even be doing a bit of bright colour clashing! Thanks for reading.
