We love a good celebration in Glasgow so when Oasis announced their Buchanan Galleries store was getting a super ‘House of Oasis’ makeover, they hiked their pink grassy bunnies and picket fences up to Scotland just for the occasion!

The collection was everything you would want from a high street summer wardrobe. The perfect combinations of colour and print in very easy to wear styles. I loved that Oasis went to town on the matchy matchy prints that almost looked like jammies until flung on with a pair of strappy stilettos. My favourite look of the collection had to be a full H2T snakeprint look with dress, coat, bag AND shoes, it definitely ticked Β my go big or go home boxes!

I never thought in a million years that i would ever rock a bomber jacket, it was all a bit too East 17 for me but once I saw this PVC bad boy from one of my favourite Scottish designers, it would have been rude not to…

It was so lovely to see a high street store put on an event like this in Glasgow. With tickets being also sold on itison Events it gave everyone #FROW access to one of their favourite High Street brands. If you are passing Buchanan Galleries, be sure to pop into the new Oasis superstore and check out the AMAZING mural by our very own Little Book of Transfers on Buchanan Street.

forever yours betty
