COUNTRY LANE AND CARNABY STREET
On Wednesday my great British adventure involved travelling to London, meeting the gorgeous Kat of Kat Got The Cream, and attending the rather splendid Boden autumn / winter press day.
The new Boden collection consisted of two stories: ‘Coast and Country’ and ‘Town and City’, and within these stories were a number of British themes: Heritage Checks, Autumn Blooms, English Rose, City Tweed, Circle Line, London Zoo and so on. Each celebrated Britain in the typically quirky and unique Boden style, and I could certainly see many of the pieces looking good in my wardrobe!
Boden press days are perfect occasions to meet fellow bloggers, and so it was fun to bump into Rosie of Cider with Rosie, Kristabel of I Want You to Know and Carrie of Wish Wish Wish. Bloggers are the few people whose eyes don’t glaze over at the mention of blogging platforms, Pinterest boards, post inspiration etc, and it’s always an honour to meet the stylish ladies behind the blogs, not to mention messing around in the Boden photo booth!
After a long lunch Kat and I discovered we both worked in the Marylebone High Street area, at the same time, over 15 years ago. Kat was even convinced she had shopped at agnes b, Marylebone, where I was once the manager. It’s certainly a small world, and one that is always waiting for another adventure.
