UGG's Spring/Summer Collection 2013


On Wednesday 3rd April I was very lucky to be invited to the UGG Store in Manchester to view their new Spring/Summer '13 collection.

Being a fan of UGG but never having been to the Manchester store before I was very excited & honoured to be invited; I couldn't wait to see what the brand had in store for us this summer!

 When I arrived I was greeted with the offer of champagne and a cupcake (every girl's favourite combination!) and was made to feel very welcome.

The stores d├ęcor was comfortable yet stylish and stayed very true to UGG's identity. Sheepskin rugs casually lay around offering an air of comfort and luxury and it wasn't long before I was whisked away on my own private tour of the store...

 
Upon viewing the women's collection I must admit I was pleasantly surprised! When thinking of UGG most people imagine the classic sheepskin boot, but the brand has come along leaps and bounds since then!

Maliha Shoe

 Naima & Salima Shoe
 
 Hamra Shoe
 
Featuring their tallest ever heel the new collection screams luxury... and as an added little extra each shoe features a little bit of sheepskin fleece for that extra added comfort (so cute)!

Inspired by the Marrakech Bazaar the collection features Moroccan inspired laser cut leather, stained wooden beads and a wide variety of feminine silhouettes.

With the comfort element being key to UGG it's only natural that the new range covers all type of shoe including the sneaker...




...and let's not forget to mention that new twist added to an old favourite!

Bailey Charms

How amazing are these?^^
Embroidery Mid

Classic Short Sparkles in Raspberry Sorbet
 
Not only does UGG create the most beautiful variety of shoes for women but they also have a rather amazing collection for the guys too...
 
Em-Pire Perf Shoe


Wilton Shoe
 
With a style of shoe for every type of guy UGG just can't do no wrong! My particular favourites have got to be the Wilton Shoe in Moroccan Stripe!

After indulging in shoe luxury it was soon time to leave, but not before being given an amazing goody bag; containing a large orange UGG beach towel and a cute Ivory Luggage tag (the perfect gift as I have just booked my holiday away).

I must admit after my visit to the UGG store I really do feel enlightened as they really do create a shoe for every occasion!

Next time your in town be sure to head to the store on Cathedral Approach, Manchester... or if you can't wait that long shop the new collection online now at...

Pretty in Punk Distressed

Pretty in Punk Distressed
So, as some of my regular readers may be aware last summer I set up my own clothing range; Pretty in Punk... featuring one-of-a-kind, tie dye pieces such as t-shirts, crop tops & dresses etc.
 
Having been such a hit on ASOS Marketplace I just recently decided to pursue my dream and expand my range to customised vintage denim...
 
Having worked extremely hard over the past two months sourcing vintage and developing techniques to create the desired look my new pieces are now finally ready to be sold & bought to be loved by fashionistas all over the globe.
 
:)
 
Here's a little look at what I've created so far...

All items are now ready to shop along with all our Pretty in Punk Originals on ASOS Marketplace...

What Jodie Wore...

What Jodie Wore
It's been a long while since I did a proper outfit post but now that the weather is beginning to look up I decided I might as well get back in the habit!
 
This particular look has been put together as part of a competition I entered for lookbook.nu where by we had to submit a picture of ourselves in an outfit featuring a pair of Levi 501's.
...this was indeed PERFECT for me as some of you may know I have started to create my own reworked Levi shorts as part of my clothing range Pretty in Punk.
 
Jumper - Topshop
Levi shorts - Pretty in Punk
Tie Dye Socks - Pretty in Punk
 
Let me know what y'all think! Oh and if you're a member of lookbook.nu don't forget to check out my profile...

Food Glorious Food

Food Glorious Food
 
So here's the first review to come on my amazing gifts from The Manchester Fashion Week team...
 
I thought I start with the tastiest gifts of all (as lets be honest they're the hardest to resist)... and boy were they tasty!
 
The first thing to catch my eye in my fabulous gift box was a gigantic box of choccies from Hotel Chocolat. With so many varieties to chose from it was hard to pick a favourite flavour, however after sampling them all it was most definitely a draw between the Choc Chip Cookie and the surprisingly delicious Sea Salt and Caramel.
 
 Choc Chip Cookie
Sea Salt Caramel
 
Another tasty treat to be received was the amazing Mega Load's 'sweet and salty' peanut butter cups...
 
 
Having never sampled something quite like this before I was both intrigued and excited to give them a try! The combination of the sweet chocolate and salty pretzel was a pleasant surprise and I enjoyed every bite!
 
 
 
...deffo something I shall be purchasing in the future!
 
Finally from the sweet, to the salty & sweet, to the savoury... The mouth wateringly good Popchips.
 
...and in my favourite flavour too!
(MCRFW how did you know?)
 
 
Being healthier than regular crisps and in yummy barbeque flavour these were deffo my favourite treat in my blogger's gift box!
 
For the next review be sure to keep your eyes peeled!
