London Trip Pt. 1

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you'll know that I took a bit of a whirlwind trip to England last week. It was totally last minute and totally amazing. Myself and a few other Canadian bloggers were flown out to spend some time in London and Manchester, learning about the UK's fastest growing online retailer Boohoo.com and hanging out at their offices. It was so fabulous to meet the Boohoo team and see the awesome working environment they have, and even more awesome to have the chance to meet fellow Canadians Jen, Alicia and Kate, who before last week I'd only known online!
On Day 1, we visited the London showroom (which was right next to Liberty - such a danger to my wallet!) and got to play with some of the latest pieces. I was particularly obsessed with this jacket, which the other girls can probably attest to, since I talked about it for the rest of the trip. While in London, we stayed at the Dorset Square Hotel, which I think is now my favourite hotel I have ever stayed at, period. My room was MASSIVE... I am talking like hallway, bookshelves, closet bigger than my apartment type thing. I couldn't capture how gorgeous it was in one photo, but I at least got the bedroom.
Also, while I've spent a lot of time in England and taken my fair share of trains, I hadn't before this trip sat in first class on one... weird right? Anyways, I'm officially never going back to coach. I mean, free wi-fi, wine and Tyrrell's chip? Come on...
Lots more photos to come. BIG Thank You's to the whole Boohoo.com team and NKPR for such a fabulous trip.

Wearing: Theyskens Theory jacket, Zara t-shirt, Wilfred Free pants (similar pairs here and here), Strategia boots (similar boots here and here), Holt Renfrew scarf. x E
