Motel Rocks | SS13 Press Day

This week has been a blur! On Thursday evening I left the cosy familiarity of Sheffield and went down to London for a couple of fashion press days. Motel and AX Paris both fell on the same afternoon which was awesome for me as it meant I could blog about both!

This was my first Motel event - despite being a teamer and a top blogger for ages I had never been free to check out their style previews, so it was great to see Selina and of course next season's offerings....

The 90s don't even seem that long ago and yet it's amazing how nostalgic I felt for Dream Phone and Backstreet Boys at the Motel press day! The newest collection was displayed alongside a teenage girls bedroom circa '94, and my GOD did it take me back. The return of the scrunchie and grunge has divided the fash-pack but I'm all for a little nineties revival, me. I'm still learning more about the music I was too young to truly appreciate (I'm looking at you Brett Anderson), and I'm at my mostest happiest when I'm skipping about in me denim overalls, so y'know, in many ways not that much has changed.

The SS13 preview from Motel was ALL OVER our childhood decade. Tie dye, fluoro, smiley faces, crops. You name it, Gwen Stefani would've worn it. I didn't trust myself enough to get a henna tattoo (work the next day sad face), but it's fine because I was too busy cooing over the denim shirt dresses and unicorn-print dresses. Plus I got to catch up with Lyzi and saw Hannah, Laura and Becca too ftw.

Don't forget folks, you can get a cheeky 20% off by entering the code "jazz_pad" at the checkout. How had I forgotten that most things were squeaky, plastic, and blow-up in those days, and why?

  7. Ahhhh the paisley print dungarees I spy in the first picture look bloody amazing, I need them in my life!
    I wish I'd been a teen in the 90's sometimes- we definitely missed out on some good music (I would absolutely love to have seen Pulp in their heyday) because we were too young and too busy dancing around our bedrooms to the Spice Girls...not that there was anything wrong with that mind you!
