AW11 Press Day:

A while back I went by Very’s fashion street to check out its autumn/winter 2011 collections and I liked what I saw. First up, I have to give them credit for an amazing set up, I love the Banksy stickers on the walls, the street sign, the lights, park bench and the oversized chess pieces, a lot of thought went into this press day and I loved it.

My partner-in-crime Alex was also with me and I just couldn’t resist this picture, at the heart of Very City!!!

What surprised me most about this collection had to be the shoes, if you haven’t check out when it comes to footwear then you should as for autumn/winter they have some gorgeous pieces. I love these boots with their chunky laces and shearling detailing, they will certainly keep you warm, also the hiking boot-style doesn’t seem to be going away for winter.

They also have a great selection of killer heels, I adore these raspberry laced peep-toe wedges, oh if only I could walk in them!!

As always the Fearne Cotton collection was impressive and I think her best yet. Of course once again it is based primarily on her wardrobe and what she would wear, but come on with style like hers I don’t blame her. I was particularly drawn to this checked cape, I love the orange as well as the lace collar detailing, and worn over skinny jeans and chunky boots this will look amazing.

My other favourite piece was this shift dress with its buckle detailing to the shoulders and its blue check skirt.

Very’s newest designer collaborator Diana Vickers line was also on display, and I love the Miu Miu-inspired lilac v-neck shift with flower appliques to the pockets.

Dots sticking around for autumn/winter in a big way.

I was quite taken with the blouses and the prints, I love this mustard shirt looks great styled with skinny flares, as well as this bird print teamed with country-chic pieces.
