Girl Meets… Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings, Clerkenwell http://www.girlmeetsdress.com/blog/trend/girl-meets-bourne-hollingsworth-buildings-clerkenwell/ http://www.girlmeetsdress.com/blog/trend/girl-meets-bourne-hollingsworth-buildings-clerkenwell/#respond Sun, 31 Jan 2016 13:13:42 +0000 http://www.girlmeetsdress.com/blog/?p=12884  

We’re always on the look out for new interesting and beautiful places to eat, and when we heard about Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings in Clerkenwell, we knew we had to pay them a visit. A Modern All-day Brasserie and Bar in Clerkenwell, they offer all-day eating and drinking and a ‘Bottomless Brunch’ with cocktails at the weekend – what’s not to love?

When we visited on a Thursday evening, we started in the large bar area, serving the brand’s famous cocktails. It was busy and the sofas next to the open fire were filled with after work guests.
After tasting a couple of delicious choices from the cocktail menu, we were led through to the 70-cover restaurant and greenhouse that’s filled with cane garden furniture, hanging baskets, fully grown trees and trailing creepers.

The food menu was varied and there was lots to choose from. Both the steak and the braised beef in wine sauce were fantastic and highly recommended.

The service here was also great and there was always a member of staff in close proximity to bring us what we needed.

We found the B&H Building greenhouse buzzing but relaxing in perfect measures and the space really comfortable to be in. This is a versatile venue that would be suited for either a weekday dinner, a date, or taking a large group of a celebration of weekend brunch.
We’ll definitely be back to try the eggs and bloody Mary on a rainy Sunday!




Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings, 42 Northampton Road, Clerkenwell, EC1R 0HU. Nearest station: Farringdon or Angel. The weekend brunch parties run from 10am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit the Bourne & Hollingsworth buildings website.

The perfect diamonds to wear with your dress! http://www.girlmeetsdress.com/blog/partner/the-perfect-diamonds-to-wear-with-your-dress/ http://www.girlmeetsdress.com/blog/partner/the-perfect-diamonds-to-wear-with-your-dress/#respond Mon, 14 Dec 2015 11:46:35 +0000 http://www.girlmeetsdress.com/blog/?p=12837  


This week Girl Meets Dress has partnered with The Diamond Store, so that once you have your perfect dress rented from us, you can browse the most spectacular diamonds to accessorize your festive party look!

After winning the prestigious UK Jewellery Awards twice in 2014 and 2013, once again in 2015 The Diamond Store were the finalists in the “E­tailer of the Year” category!

We love the story of Gary Ingram, Founder & MD of The Diamond Store, who started the company seven years ago out of sheer frustration. Having taken the bold decision to get engaged,  he was looking for THE ring with which to propose but had never ventured into a jewellery shop before and with limited diamond knowledge, found the whole process of research and window shopping uninformative and bamboozling.

Seven years later the result is the The Diamond Store.co.uk—a collaboration of experts, twice winner and nominee at the 2015, 2014 and 2013 UK Jewellery Awards, and with over 50,000* happy customers.

Their mission is simply “Luxury with Confidence”.  To find the most suitable jewellery for every budget without compromise.

My Top 5: Juliette Loughran, founder of Loughran Gallery http://www.girlmeetsdress.com/blog/my-top-5-dresses/my-top-5-juliette-loughran-founder-of-loughran-gallery/ http://www.girlmeetsdress.com/blog/my-top-5-dresses/my-top-5-juliette-loughran-founder-of-loughran-gallery/#respond Mon, 07 Dec 2015 23:54:52 +0000 http://www.girlmeetsdress.com/blog/?p=12819  

Juliette Loughran, founder of Loughran Gallery talks to Girl Meets Dress about the dresses from the website she’ll be wearing for the festive period 


Loughran Gallery

Initially a roaming gallery existing through energetic bursts of pop-up shows and more recently through longer residential spells in Belgravia and Chelsea. Loughran Gallery presents a defined and established rostrum of artists representing the best of cutting-edge contemporary art, Juliette works with some of the most coveted artists of today including Chris Levine, Corinne Dalle-Ore, Dale vN Marshall, Darwin Sinke & van Tongeren, Dave White, Frederique Morrel, Harland Miller, Jessica Zoob, Nick Jeffrey and Piers Bourke.



Juliette has a busy week ahead and these are the dresses she is choosing to wear to the following events:

1. Valentino
On Thursday I’ll be attending the launch of The Studio a super exciting new space for Averil Blundell Interior Design – Averil’s one of my oldest friends and I can’t wait to see this in the flesh, i’ve seen the photos and it looks amazing – so my outfit needs to be equally fun and exciting for this occasion. I love the pop of red on this dress and I think the scallop detail is super cute.


2. Alexander McQueen
I can’t wait for Friday, the first festive party of the season! It’s going to be a real girlie night and so this McQueen dress is just the ticket. It will take me from delicious belinis at Claridges – one of our girlie traditions, I go as often as I can over the festive period just to take in the decorations, they’re always the best in London – and then it’s dinner and cocktails at Hakkasan and most probably dancing late into the night.


3. Roland Mouret
Next week sees Loughran Gallery celebrate our latest group show with one of our signature parties, and seeing as it’s Christmas it’s going to be an extra special one. The theme for the show is all about colour and fun, we’ve got an amazing installation by Frederique Morrel, her work is magical. This satin dress is the ideal little number for the event – it’s simple yet effective so I can move about the room and feel comfortable yet it’s still amazing and I LOVE Mouret.

4. See by Chloe
This cute little preppy dress is what I’ll be wearing to the art consultation appointment I have in Switzerland next week. The collar is just the right touch of professional vibes but the short length and long sleeves keep it fun. I love the striped detail in the structure of the fabric!

5. Isabel Marant
The weekend sees me heading back up to home turf in the north to see my good friend Vinny’s new restaurant Yu in Alderley Edge. The Cantonese cuisine menu here is something else; the people of Alderley Edge are in for a real treat….I just wish they’d open something in London soon! I think this Isabel Marant dress, with the gorgeous purple and frills, stands up to this occasion – although I will most definitely be teaming it up with a leather jacket, black tights and boots to brave the Cheshire climate!
