Intu Eldon Square Fashion Spooktacular


As I have got older I have become obsessed with Autumn. Even though I am a sun worshiper and love summer dresses and strappy tops with no coats, living in the North East of England sunny hot weather is few and far between, but Autumn, well you know what you are getting with Autumn. I also love Autumn as I am slightly obsessed with Halloween, I decorate the house and have a little Halloween party just me and my husband. I could not care less that I don't have kids, I am just a big kid and I love it. I will even go to work dressed up (only if other people are though, I am not a complete raving lunatic) see evidence number one....

Along with my weird obsession with dressing up for Halloween, I also get very excited for my Autumn wardrobe, cosy sweaters, jeans, boots, hats, coats, layering galore. There are so many amazing outfits options when it comes to the Autumn season that it can also be daunting to get it right or know what pieces are best for you so you don't look like a wrapped up potato (I have evidence of me looking like this as well but lets just move on from that). So when Intu Eldon Square invited me along to get a sneak peek at their Autumn/Halloween inspired fashion workshops, I jumped at the chance, and this is why you should too.


You will find this fantastic fashion pop up just outside New Look in Eldon Square and it is running until the 29th October. They have a selection of key Autumn pieces along with great classy Halloween outfit and decoration options (not a bin bag or witch mask in sight). Each day they will be running workshops that anyone can drop into and is a great opportunity to get advise from trained stylist Emma.

So what can you expect?

Creepy crawly homeware

If you are like me and love decorating your house but don't fancy crate paper vampires or plastic ghosts and fake blood everywhere then this is a great place to stop and get some ideas. I personally loved all the decorated fake pumpkins and the sugar skulls, and even though I hate spiders this light bell jar is just awesome. Pick up some great ideas for your Halloween celebration at this drop in workshop.

How to pick a wicked winter coat 

It's actually harder then you think to pick the perfect winter coat. You need it to keep you warm but also look good and go with most outfits. This drop in session is perfect to get advice on the latest trends, what suits your body shape and discover how to style your winter coat with any look. This is the one I am most interested in as I am currently trying to find a tailored style winter coat. Emma, the stylist gave me some great advice about print and the size print that is best for me as I am quite petite, I tried on a checked print which I would never have normally gone for and I fell in love. So I will be off to Eldon Square this weekend to go on the hunt for one in my size.

Autumn/winter capsule wardrobe wizardry 

I have always wanted to do a full capsule wardrobe for each season. I envy people that can get just a few key pieces of clothing and then turn that into lots of amazing outfits, my brain just does work in that way, which is why any help and advice is well received by me. This drop-in session consists of a personal stylist working with you to build your perfect autumn/winter capsule wardrobe so you can discover the key pieces that work well together if you don’t have an eye for that.

Our top ten must-have autumn/winter items

With each new season, I’m sure I google or search on YouTube the phrase 'must-have items' at least once a day, just to try and give me inspiration on where to spend my money for that season and Autumn and Winter are the most important in my opinion as you need more layers. I love the idea of this drop-in session as it means you don’t have to trawl the internet looking for ideas you can talk directly to the people in the know and they can advise you. They will run through the top ten must-have pieces which include things like statement tees, slouch boots and the ‘wear everywhere’ dress to name but a few.

Scarily-good Halloween costume ideas

Think chic Halloween costumes, not bin bags or newspaper stuffed in tights (did anyone else do that for a cats tail). This workshop is ideal for anyone wanting to WOW at their Halloween parties and I love the idea of a few great pieces that could be a normal party outfit but when paired with Halloween accessories brings the whole look together. This rib look top and tulle skirt was my favourite outfit idea, with a sugar skull face paint this is such a cute Halloween costume.
