Flash Sale

Walking to work today I could help but notice that the empty shop next door had big writing in the window. Ok, I got a little excited, I thought we were getting new neighbours, but what I read made me even happier. FLASH SALE! Yes, a massive secret clearance sale for AW10/11 goods from amazing brands including Jaeger, Burberry and Vivienne Westwood (see the flyer for the full list) with 50%-70% off. It will last from 2nd -6th March and take place at 65-67 Monmouth Street in the Seven Dials, Covent Garden.


Opening Ceremony Footwear SS11

I have been meaning to do this post since the Opening Ceremony Footwear SS11 collection dropped at work last week, but alas uni work has taken over again. The new collection features gorgeous feminine styles, including lace and T-bars, on stocky heels and big platforms, which I sincerley recommend wearing with a midi or a maxi to keep your outfit looking edgy. In addition to this they have updated their AW10 clog boot with summer friendly colours and brought out some stunning wedges, however I am struggling to find pictures of them. Part of the collection is available from Poste Mistress in Covent Garden now.

Upper 5th / Village Green Launch

For those of you who haven’t heard, The Village Green store has finally arrived in Covent Garden, complete with an Upper 5th wall. A few days ago the lovely people working there invited us to the Launch Party, unfortnately I can’t go (exam), but you can!!

The launch is this Wednesday, 24th November, from 6-9pm. You can expect DIY cinema, popcorn, cider and merriment, as well as 20% off all night. Now who said Wednesday’s were boring?

H&M AW10 Collection

To be quite honest, I’ve been going off H&M for a few seasons as every time I go in there I’m greeted by quite frankly cheap looking prints, and whilst they do have the odd hidden gem, the Oxford street and Regent street stores are usually too manic to even bother. However a few months ago I discovered that the Covent Garden store was actually quite peaceful, this prompted me to go in and buy a few basic pieces, and remember it for later.

Now I have just seen the new AW10 collection I will definitely be paying them a visit, as it is a lot more chic then their previous seasons. There is a lot of camel and tailoring, and once again they focus heavily on coats. Wait, don’t groan just yet. Whilst last winter most of their coats closely resembled tat, this year they have made a come back, featuring my favourite item, the camel cape, along with some other gorgeous cover ups. Along side these there are fabulously tailored flared trousers, “perfect for winter” shorts and several luxurious tops. It’s fair to say that H&M have grown up this season, a move which I think they needed.

Reiss Summer Shopping Event

Usually the Metro isn’t exactly a paper filled with amazing fashion fixes, however on Thursday their Style Counsel announced that they had teamed up with Reiss to bring a super shopping summer event. It takes place on Wednesday 9th June between 6pm-8pm, at the Reiss store in Covent Garden, 8-9 Long Acre, WC2 9LH, and there is plenty going on.

Firstly there is a 10% discount on all goods, and a goodie bag with each purchase whilst stocks last, as well as the chance to win a £250 gift card.  On top of all of this there will be complimentary cocktails courtesy of MOOSE and an incredible selection of music from one of my favourites The Paddingtons, Othello Woolf and the Bang Bang Club. Even if you aren’t going for the clothes, take advantage of the music and drinks!
