Bon Marché: Newcastle Store Opening

When I saw a tweet sent out by Bon Marché, asking if anyone wanted to attend the (revamped) store opening in Newcastle, my heart sank, as I figured I'd still be in Turkey at the time. Thankfully, it was the day after I landed, and I'd already taken the day off work to recover from my jet lag. AHA! It was meant to be!

Jet lagged as anything, I threw on a dress I'd ordered from ASOS before Lent (from Turkey):

So, the gorgeous Hannah and I head off to store on Grainger Street. 

We first were welcomed by the impressive window displays:

And there was David Emmanuel, sat in the window signing autographs and making women feel fabulous. 

We snuck past, and were greeted with cupcakes (lemon to match my dress, obviously:

One of the things I loved about the store, was that the clothes were spaciously laid out, and you could see most of them from the door way! The changing rooms were easy to access, and spacious! Hannah and I shared the disabled room, which was just as glamourous as the others!

The first dress we tried on was this one:

Which sadly didn't fit my bust, revealing far too much bra. I did add a cami underneath it, but it didn't have the wow factor of here!

Due to the 'issue' with this one, I had guessed that this Paisley print dress would have the same issue:

And it did. 

I did rather like this top, but the asymmetrical hem put me off a little

Although this dress close contender to win the dress of the day prize, but something was a little off for me. Still can't quite put my finger on it.

One dress did catch my attention, and I'll be showing you it in more detail in a post or two's time! But here it is teamed with an amazing teal suede effect biker jacket.

All in all, I can recommend taking a look at Bon Marché (pronounced March-ay, not March) you might just be surprised what you come across!

Much love my lovelies,

  1. This sounds terrible, but I've always seen Bon Marche as an old ladies shop. There seem to be a plethora of long swishing shirts and shapeless pieces as soon as you walk in! Although from the look of things it looks like things may be a little different now. I also snigger (I'm a massive child, yes) when I walk past because the shop is called "cheap", albeit in French.

    Did you buy the teal jacket? It looks amazing on you, especially with that dress!

    1. Kathryn didn't get the jacket but I did! It's amazing!

  2. You both look amazing in the dotty dresses, and the blue jacket over the last dress is an inspired pairing! x x

  3. You look so fab in all that stuff! I love the polka dotted one and the color blocking one!!!
