So on Thursday last week, I was invited to the DUO Boutique in Bath (which I am very fond of) for a unique blogger experience event, entitled #DUOBOOTTRIBE, to celebrate their new Autumn Winter collection and find out more about their boot tribes. I was there with about 13 other fashion bloggers, some very familiar faces like Tara from The Style Rawr, Gina from Bristol and Megan from Briar Rose. All of which I know very well from other events, but I was lucky to make a new friend as well, the lovely and adorable Michelle from Eclectic Threads. It was a fantastic event and I actually really enjoyed it! A lot of the times I don’t like parties or crowded situations, but this one was very low key, relaxed and enjoyable!
It started out with a talk about the different Boot Tribes that DUO have: ankle boots, calf boots and over the knee boots. The aim of the evening was to find out about the differences and of course, search for your perfect boot around the store. The best thing about DUO for me is the calf sizes. I have bigger feet (UK 6 or 7) and very tiny calves, so finding boots to fit my calves and foot size is impossible, they are always too big, but with DUO, they come in various widths so there’s a perfect size for me. This is why I own two other pairs from them! I had looked online prior to the event to choose the boots I loved and the ones I ended up going for are these gorgeous Dita grey over the knee suede boots! Aren’t they stunning? I tried on various other styles which you can see below, but I fell hard for these! I literally cannot wait to style them and show them to you!
You can see lots of photos from the event and it was so much fun, I actually stayed until the end which isn’t something I usually do! I’ve also got my eye on another pair of shoes, which also come in widths, so I might have to save a little for those ones! My mum who works with me on The Fashion Supernova also got to attend the event, so you can expect to see her side of the story and boot choices on there very soon! As well as a post on some of the latest styles! A huge thank you to DUO for organising this and inviting me, it truly was a wonderful evening! I hope you enjoy the photos, and yes, my concentration face in some of the photos is that of a slightly angry one, even though I wasn’t, I might need to work on that! Ha ha!
So those are the Dita boots just above that I chose, you can even fold the top over so you can have them just below the knee. The little labelled tags we had with our blogs names on them were also so sweet! I loved them too, you can see them below!
Now these were the Enola boots that I originally tried on, but I felt like they were just a bit too chunky for my tiny legs, plus the tan was a bit harsh I think. I’m much better suited to the grey ones, but hey, you gotta try on all the shoes right?
These were the Seine loafers that I adored, they are patent burgundy and oh so comfortable! I think they look really cute with skinny jeans as well. These are the ones that I might just need to go back for, ha ha!
There were lots of other ankle boots that I loved and actually the ankle boot tribe won out for the evening as the majority of bloggers chose that section, I think I was the only one to choose the over the knee boots! Even though I adore ankle boots, I decided to get full length as it is something I lack and I never have issues finding ankle boots to fit! I would love to know what you think of the photos and the evening!
