A Photo Shoot with Fenn Wright Manson!

It was such an honour to be invited over to a very special press & bloggers day at Fenn Wright Manson's office in London last week. As well as getting a sneak peek at the AW13 range (more to come - Im not allowed to show any pictures yet!) us bloggers got to try on all of the SS13 range (which is currently available) and have our photographs taken by a professional!
While I was in the styling suite, I was joined by my blogging buddies Kat from Does My Bum Look 40 and Natalie from Glam Rosie and here we all are before we started dressing up
Within minutes of this shot, we started trying on from the rails around us. This next top is one of FWM's best sellers. It's a beautifully fitting silky top with a rear exposed zip and it comes in a few different colours. So practical and one of those classic pieces you would have in your wardrobe for years. I tried on the cobalt blue one first:
Bella Roll Sleeve Top - Cobalt
Next I tried on a coat I'd seen online and fallen in love with. It's difficult to see with the angle I'm standing at but it's got the most amazing embellished detail on the right side, the shoulders and the cuffs. You can see it better on the website picture.
Colette Embellished Mac
Millie Top
Great minds and all that...
Natalie & I - Bella Roll Sleeved Top in Navy/Orchid
Kat - Bella Roll Sleeved Top in Electric Blue

Again, difficult to see the detail on my photo (check the website image!) but this short navy jacket was a big hit with everyone. Classic shape, gorgeous fabric and another wardrobe classic.
Versailles Collarless Jacket
It was so lovely trying on these beautiful pieces in our own styling suite and with our own professional photographer! Some of the items are on sale right now too and if you sign up to the FWM newsletter, you'll get a discount off your first order AND free delivery!
There were a few pieces that I didn't have time to try or weren't in my size in this collage below:
Clockwise from top:
Laurel Jacket
Verdi Trouser
Mabel Jumper
Leyla Silk Dress
And I'll leave you with some images from the rest of the SS13 range. 
Thanks Fenn Wright Manson for a lovely day!
