POLHEM PR PRESS DAY

As I mentioned earlier, a few days ago I went to my first ever press day in Latvia! We were greeted by waffles with sweet cream and strawberries, as well as champagne and loads of finger food. A lot of new collections were displayed for various brands and it was interesting to hear the stories behind some of them. Let me take you through the pictures! As soon as we arrived, we headed towards this jewellery corner where we met Kriss Poldma, the woman behind this amazing brand called New Vintage by Kriss. She is originally from Estonia and she actually got the idea of a jewellery boutique after all her jewellery got stolen and she had to make her own as trying to find everything in the shops again was just too much. I really fell in love with her pieces, as they were either very delicate or a complete statement by themselves. We then went on to the sports corner (left picture) and looked at the new collections. I was pretty impressed by the Adidas sportswear - something like that might actually motivate me to get back to the gym! We also looked at the new Reebok collection, as well as Alicia Keys x Reebok trainers, and also the new Stella Maccartney collection for Adidas. On the right picture you can get a preview of some upcoming New Yorker items. The general vibe was quite dark and quirky, I was really impressed! In particular I set my eyes on this New Yorker clutch bag (I think I may have seen it in the shop today as well!) There were so...many...sunglasses! I was so concentrated on shooting them that I unfortunately forgot to ask any information. I spotted a few Dior pairs that I secretly wished I had, and I really liked the colorful huge framed sunglasses in the picture above. I'm just very particular about sunglasses and I feel that these would never suit my face *sob*..
I had a look at the samples shown by Lauma Lingerie - a Latvian lingerie brand. I noticed that a lot of their bras (in the showroom AND the shop) have this structure where there is that silky line at the top, which I absolutely fell for! This is Stefany, a Latvian blogger who I met that day for frozen yoghurt, press day and outfit photos. She's so nice and fun, I really hope we meet again soon! :) This was my impressive goodie bag - I felt so spoiled! I got a huge neon towel, lots of press releases, giftcards, make-up, CD's and much more.
