We are so excited to welcome stunning brand ‘The 8th Sign’ into the Out & About showroom. Inspired by a round the world trip they are the ultimate brand for the non-practical high fashion female, bringing to the market transformable clothing which offer a multitude of styling options. The brand was born out of a desire to give the girl on the go the upper hand when it comes to her wardrobe, featuring pieces which can be turned inside out, complete with attachable and removable parts, this really is the epitome of versatile while maintaining a premium look!
The co-founders Melissa Barton and Yasmin Todd have a wealth of experience within the Fashion industry and having spent years working for other people have decided to create their own brand which answers all the needs that they themselves have had over the years. They have a passion for showcasing local talent and for putting the love and longevity back into our wardrobes.
This is a brand made for women by women, they are their own customer, meaning you can have faith in their success in making their capsule collections absolutely what their customer is looking for.
We are thoroughly excited to be working with them on this journey!
We’re super proud of the beautiful brand – Somedays Lovin‘ – nailing the boho trend for Spring/summer this year……take a look at the styles currently on ASOS.

Roo’s Beach one of our favourite stockists has created a delightful lil’ Spring moodboard featuring some of MinkPink’s classic floaty dresses (yup the one’s we’re all dying to get into as soon as the sun makes an appearance!)

As always our criteria are the same and our choices are made based on fabric, fit, colour, print, texture, fun, originality.”

As we mentioned last week, we attended Pure to show MinkPinks latest collection last week, it was fantastic, we bumped into lots of lovely bloggers, buyers and brands. We’re really excited about this Summer with our brands.
One of the UK’s biggest and most exciting Tradeshows PURE is about to descend upon Olympia London and we will be there showcasing MinkPink’s latest collection. EXCITED MUCH?
Pure London is the UK’s leading fashion trade show which takes place twice a year in London Olympia, it’s where all the good stuff happens and this year there’s even more added!
Lets take a minute to talk about MinkPink seeing as they’re going to the talk of the show
WILD, PLAYFUL AND IRREVERENT, MINKPINK INJECTS A BURST OF PERSONALITY INTO WARDROBES AROUND THE GLOBE, AND IS REGULARLY SEEN ON SOME OF THE HOTTEST GIRLS ON THE PLANET. (We have the proof!)
BUYERS AND CONSUMERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THEIR MAINLINE COLLECTIONS, SWIMWEAR, SUNGLASSES, ACCESSORIES AND BASICS THANKS TO THEIR ABILITY TO TAP INTO LEADING INTERNATIONAL TRENDS AND MERGE THEM WITH VINTAGE INFLUENCES, CREATING LOOKS THAT EVERY SAVVY FASHIONISTA WORTH THEIR SALT JUST HAS TO GET THEIR HANDS ON.
THEIR KEY TO SUCCESS? THEY LOVE BEING PART OF MINKPINK AS MUCH AS THEIR LOYAL GIRLS LOVE WEARING IT…and we are very proud to a part of their team!
We’ll update you on how it went soon!
With festival season a thing of the past for the year (sob)- as Autumn rolls in we’re still on patrol for ladies rocking MINKPINK- from old statement pieces, to hot new in staples- we’re forever taking inspiration from the ladies of the ‘net. Plus, we were a tiny bit excited to spot a certain Ms Jenner and a well known Cara parading about in our pieces- pretty cool right? RIGHT! You can shop the newest pieces now- so get going chicks!

Cara Delevinge in MINKPINK
What Olivia Did in MINKPINK
Okay, so it may be grey and rainy outside- but we’re certainly still hoping there’s a little bit of summer left in the UK, and a little bit of time left to flaunt our favourite summer pieces before they’re redundant for another year. So- who better than to seek inspo’ from than some of the coolest bloggers in the UK (and some A list babes) who we’ve caught rocking MINKPINK, Evil Twin and Solace over the last few weeks, pretty cool huh? How have you been wearing yours?
Sam Faiers in MINKPINK
Kendall Jenner in Solace
If you’ve followed us here at OUT + ABOUT for a while, you’ll know Solace London are one of our newer additions to our brand family- and are renown for their slick, sharp and clean lines and minimalistic and modern shapes (read: reasons why we love them). So, imagine our excitement when we spotted them hanging out over on the Urban Outfitters website last week- ready for you to snap up and grab a piece of the action- all in their Autumn Winter glory (and trust us, it’s looking beautiful). You can shop the new collection HERE.
Well, well, well. If there’s one way to get us excited for Autumn on a gloomy summers day it’s by showing us the new Somedays Lovin x Natalie Off Duty collection hitting the stores this AW14. Not only are we suckers for cool knitwear, graphic denim and aviator jackets (plus, uh, have you SEEN that pink coat)- but it’s no secret how much we love both Natalie and Dylana Suarez, so this is pretty much top marks from us. Stay tuned to see when it’s hitting stores- but for now feast your eyes on this bunch!
