House of Fraser A/W 2014 Press Day


Those who have seen my Boohoo press day post will recall that I visited London last week and not only did I get invited to the Boohoo press day, I was also kindly invited to the House of Fraser office to see their autumn and winter collections too. Admittedly I was quite nervous upon my visit to HOF as I had never really gone to a press day in London on my own and I didn't really know what to expect. I felt slightly out of my comfort zone as a I stood next to the stylist from QVC and saw many editors enter the room, nevertheless it was all worth it to see the beautiful clothing and if asked again, I would say yes in a heart. House of Fraser has always been my favourite department store, the reason behind this is that it is probably the most luxurious place to shop in Huddersfield - the rest of the town is an array of Poundshops and Primarks. I have always loved shopping in House of Fraser and have always found the clothing I wanted. If you looked at my bank statement, House of Fraser is the place I spent most of my money.


The HOF press day was full of gorgeous leather pieces like this leather top, grey soft fabrics and pastel colours. During the a/w it is usually expected that clothes will get darker and grungy, but HOF and Boohoo have stuck with pastels throughout the year, giving us a bright light of hope for good weather in the murkier seasons. 


One of the things I fell in love with at the HOF press day was all the lovely handbags. There was so many different styles and quirky prints like this yellow one above. Some of the bags had unique shapes and one of the clutches I saw had a gorgeous faux fur top.


My favourite items of the day were these mint blue/green leather jacket and skirt from Pied a Terre, a brand heavily stocked by House of Fraser. The jacket and skirt duo are perfect for adding a splice of colour into your a/w wardrobe without looking too bright and bold for the weather.

What do you think of the House of Fraser autumn and winter collection?
