It’s Glasgow Style Mile Festival people (#StyleMileFest) – a festival dedicated to shopping and if you haven’t been to Glasgow before, this time of year is when you should plan to come here. The city’s already known for the best shopping in Scotland! Remember my Armani posts? Running throughout the bank holiday until Monday 30th May, the Glasgow Style Mile Shopping Festival celebrates the city’s vibrant and unique retail offering with a busy line up of events from some of Glasgow’s biggest retailers. It’s hard to miss. Buchanan Street has had a style make-over for the event with the arrival of Glasgow’s very own Festival Hub. Featuring a hair and beauty bar, a terrace as well as individual lifestyle, fashion and beauty spaces, the Hub plays host to a series of presentations and personal advice from a range of top stylists, make-up artists, retailers and interior specialists over the five days. I entered the competition to win some sparkles at the ROX hub just outside the Argyle Arcade before I headed in to the ROX store located inside the Argyle Arcade.
I love Argyle Arcade. There’s something very satisfying about being surrounded by diamonds, gold and various other sparkly things. Know the feeling girls? Something that ROX have plenty of as you can see from the pictures above. I was invited by ROX to check out their new summer collection during the Style Mile Festival and absolutely loved getting to know the brand better, learning about various ROX collections, inspirations behind each one and experiencing what it’s like being a ROX customer.
I visited the store on Friday and since it was a bank holiday (schools were off), I brought my daughter with me who also loved it and was very well looked after by the girls at ROX I must add. We were taken up to the “Thrill Room” as soon as we arrived and the first thing we both said – WOW!
ROX #StyleMileFest VIP treatment at it’s best.
The service was so amazing we didn’t want to leave and believe me, my daughter gets bored very quickly but she even “helped” me with some photography! I really wanted to check out ROX’s silver bamboo, DNA and Identity collections as they are all so different and have interesting inspirations behind them. DNA is inspired by ROX’s own unique DNA pattern highlighting different threads of the brand’s DNA, whereas Identity collection is perfect for stacking, has strong geometric design and adds interest to any look. ROX’s bamboo collection was my favourite. Such an interesting earthy inspiration for jewellery and as ROX put it, the collection represents the perfect balance of grace and strength that symbolises style and power. SOLD! Plus I’ve always loved GUCCI’s bamboo inspired jewellery creations, but I believe this is even more special. The ROX Bamboo collar (see pic above) that I tried on is a masterpiece and definitely a show-stopper, but I went for a bamboo drop pendant instead, equally beautiful and something I can wear every day, plus it was only £145 compared to the bamboo collar which was over £400. By the way, I also learnt at ROX that silver “likes” to be worn all the time and if left unworn for a long time it will start to change colour and will need cleaned up and polished more often. So wear your silver ladies and if you need some new silver sparkles – book yourself in with ROX! Best experience ever!
Thanks to ROX and Style Mile Festival for such a fabulous experience.
