Magical Wedding Day

 

A  Magical  Day 

Its been a little quiet on the Love ur Look pages and website and I wanted to reassure you all that everything is still ticking, with new designs around the corner to keep you looking fabulous this Autumn Winter..

Some of you may have known that I have been planning my wedding, which happened last week (Friday 2nd October). The weather was fantastic  for my partner and I  when we married in Cambridge, United Kingdom.

I will be up loading more detailed images and information about my wedding day in the next few weeks,plus  information about how you can design your own wedding dress, as I did !

Those brides to be should know designing your own wedding dress is actually cheaper then one on many occasions.

Until the professional photos come through please enjoy the images below and if you have any questions send an email to ; info@loveurlook.co.uk with subject Wedding.

Love ur Look Summer 2014

Its been an exciting Summer for Love ur Look  5 pop up shops ( including House of Fraser) and 3 festivals later the Summer collection is swinging in the wind with only a few sizes left in each style.

The season started as you know with our magical pop up experience with House of Fraser on Oxford Street and sold out in store within 1 week. There was no way of predicting how successful Love ur Look was going to be in store and online, but we cherished every minute of our time in HOF and learnt so much for both the customers and store. A great experience which will never be forgotten.Pop up shop image

Our next stop was in Leigh on Sea.. After visiting Leigh on Sea for a weekend I realised they needed something different on the high-street.

If you’ve never been to Leigh , think of Brighton but 10 times more stylish, fast cars , big houses, boutique shops and lots of friendly faces.

Selecting a pop up shop location is always a little gamble but I soon realised there was evidence of my Love ur Look customer just by looking at the furniture shops and gift shops ,all that was missing for her lifestyle were the clothes for her to wear… Bring on LoveurLook!

Leigh on Sea

Love ur Look set up shop in the Faux Workshop, 70 Broadway which is used mainly as a gallery. This meant it was an ideal blank canvas! In both July and September we Popped up in Leigh on Sea and have already signed up to go back in 2015 !

A week later Love ur Look was set up in Camden with our friends Collective who were kind enough to give LuL a space for a second year.

Collective are an organisation supporting Camden high street and new emerging businesses with industry expert advice, funding, work space and studios as well as pop up shop locations on Camden High Street!

We had a short but sweet week and met some great new customers.. Totally ‘Love ur Look’! A big THANK YOU TO CAMDEN!CAMDEN 2014

After Camden it was time for a little camping .. So Tate (creative strategy manager)  and I headed to the Retro festival! A new festival for Love ur Look and well worth the visit.

The Retro festival is situated in Maidenhead and had well over 7,000 visitors on the Saturday alone so needless to say Tate and I only had a few hours of calm before the storm of excited customers purchasing Love ur Look.. It was so busy we sadly didn’t have time to take too pictures of all the stunning ladies who brought from us.. But check out the pictures below of this truly fun caravan which has inspired me for 2015!!  Love ur Look will be back at the retro festival for 2015 so be sure to book your tickets on time!

 

RETRO Festival

We were back in Leigh on Sea for a second stop after our success the first time …

Leigh on Sea Shop 2

Our last events for the Summer were Forest Hill Fashion Week and the Handmade Fair – Curated by Kirstie Allsopp in Hampton Court.

During Forest Hill Fashion Week we were supported but a little boutique called ‘Best of Both’. A massive thank you to all of the locals who came out to purchase a Love ur Look dress. We were very busy that weekend as we were also trading at the Handmade Fair which was the cherry on the cake and the best way to end the season.

The Handmade Fair was a great success with lots of workshops and talks from professionals inspiring people in fashion and business, including Cath Kidson and Steve Ashley (son of Laura Ashley).

Just check out these pictures and a very special one of Ronke (looking like she’s had a few too many glasses of red wine) and Kirstie at the after party of the Handmade Fair.. handmade fair 1 Handmade fair 2

Logos_00-01

Hof office

It feels like only yesterday we were in House of Fraser head office giving our presentation on Oxford Street. A truly amazing experience which shall be remembered for a very long time.

If you missed it here’s a little peak of our stand!

While at the pop up shop we had so many visitors! In fact we had so many visitors that we actually sold out in the middle of the second week and were also #1 on-line out of the 10 finalists 🙂 .. So we were extremely chuffed to say the least!

Some of the visitors included these two amazing ladies.

Vintage Bloggers!

Style Yourself Vintage and Vintage Frills  have been supporters of Love ur Look for some time now.. As well as many all over the world we felt very lucky to have them come down and write about LoveurLook! Read their full blogs here; Style Yourself Vintage and Vintage Frills  Bloggers

One of the most fabulous things we have taken away from this pop up are the friends we have made along the way.

Check us all out from start to finish in this fantastic video ..Love ur Look and Pop up Finalists from Start to Finish !

Wait one minute.. We haven’t finished yet !

Love ur Look and the other 9 finalists are also proud to be supporting another fantastic cause. Our charities and families in India already benefit from all of your support but we need your help and support this time for Emily .. #Teamemily

Team Emily

Here’s what Emily’s Dad has to say;

 
“We are doing well but as you can imagine it’s truly heartbreaking watching my nine year old go through horrendous treatments, chemo and ops. She is gradually improving from a very tough week of catching an infection which has to be managed very carefully. We have now been going through treatment for 8 months and are a month to go till maintenance. Then it will be 102 weeks on a chemo tablet, mouthwashes and meds. We have another bout of chemo (when the bloods are at a safe level to be blitzed again ) and then we have radiotherapy treatment for 12 days. It’s been a roller coaster and together with the medication we have the emotions and depression to deal with. Emily has now lost most of her hair (everyone has been surprised how long she kept it for and we can’t believe we were three weeks away from her chemo bouts finishing and now she loses it.. Unfair or what!!) I hope and pray that none of you have to experience anything like this. Thanks again for your support, prayers, messages, donations”
Love ur Look and the 9 finalists have set up a very exciting donation page full of raffle treats which MUST BE WON! How do you win ? How can you get involved?  Read all about it by clicking HERE

A massive thank you to House of Fraser and Great Retail Revival for all of their support.
