If you were to ask my  brothers opinion of how I dress you would be guaranteed the response of ‘too manly’ or ‘grandma’. So you can only imagine my determination to ensure these bad boys made it to my wardrobe pronto.

I’m not gonna lie to you, this duster was an absolute STEAL! Generally speaking I hate colour, I just don’t feel like it suits me at all however, there’s something about the pastel/sky blue that really struck me. The best part is something I wasn’t aware happened but apparently Primark do this thing called a sale?! I thought it was universally impossible for Primark to go much cheaper than it already is. So I ummed and aaahed about weather I should take a gamble and add some colour to my wardrobe and would I wear it often enough to justify the price tag. I mean at £3.00 that’s pretty much the price of a coffee! Was I willing to give up my daily dose of starbucks for this!? DUUUUUH…. I truly truly love it.

I cannot believe how quick this week has gone! Im so happy to have had the opportunity to spend a week in New Looks head office, it’s been a real pleasure. I feel like I’ve learned a lot in a small space of time which makes it a shame that I couldn’t stay for the whole two weeks. Amsterdam is calling! Me and my sister are flying on Monday which couldn’t have come around at a better time. I’m in much need of a break and can’t wait. Also… Sorry for the poor quality photos recently. Unfortunately it’s the best my faithful iPhone can provide!

I’ve come to the conclusion that it takes approximately 3 days until you can confidently say you know your way around and what’s expected of you in a work placement ( maybe thats just me! ) . There was a meeting for all departments this morning with a presentation of all the trends from the catwalk for the teams AW13/14 collections. I’m loving the upcoming trends there is a clear direction of where it’s going with powerful bold colours and interesting silhouettes. The main two influences were Biker grunge & sporty. Tres exciting!

Day three half way to the finish point. I had another good day but found it quite a struggle to remember where everything is in the different departments ( I’ll get there!! ). In a brief summary I sorted through post, steamed a load of dresses, took minutes in the buyers meeting to type up the report and a bunch of admin on the computer in between running dresses to the different departments. I’m really enjoying absorbing in the office atmosphere and learning new things.

Today was quite different I spent most of the day at my desk re-instating and re-approving PO’s, maintaining orders and doing the desk amends which is a sloooow process but a learning one all the same. The mood board pictured above I was asked to put together for a summary of what dresses are trending this week in the other high street brands. I’m thoroughly enjoying this weeks experience and am tickled every day by how incredibly serious the army troops of the London commuters are!
