A couple of weeks ago I headed to the lovely surroundings of the Blythswood Square Hotel in Glasgow for the Debenhams AW14 Scottish Press Show. It was great to see all their new season Designers at Debenhams collections, as well as some amazing Christmas beauty product releases from some of my favourite Debenhams Beauty Hall brands.

I wore by a pretty wine-coloured skirt from Lavish Alice (available here for £38) with a simple black vest top and cardigan. The skirt’s fabric feels like a cross between lycra and neoprene, and there is an eye-catching sheer white mesh panel that runs all the way around. I love it.

At the press show, I loved the abundance of black in the fashion on display. It is definitely my colour of choice. I also loved the number of jumpsuits there was- some plain black (an elegant twist on evening wear) and some in pretty dark floral prints. I’ve so far avoided the jumpsuit bandwagon after trying one on a while ago that didn’t suit me. Now, however, these gorgeous ones from Debenhams are firmly on my radar.

Beauty wise, the highlight of the night was the preview of the Christmas gift sets from Benefit Cosmetics. The packaging theme is gingerbread houses, and the product selection in the kits and their famous advent calendar is amazing. 

Even if you are a Benefit fan and think you have every conceivable Benefit product, you will never manage to let this Christmas set of their boxed blushers (yes, them all together) pass you by!
