Last week I popped down to London for a few meetings, a spot of shopping and the Very SS12 preview event. I’m always thrilled to be invited to press events – there’s always lots of food, a steady stream of alcohol and plenty of other bloggers. What’s not to love?
Admittedly, Spring/Summer is not my favourite season, and January is hardly the month to inspire thoughts of bare arms and beachy hair. But after three glasses of Prosecco and a mint green manicure, I was feeling decidedly sunny! The bright, bold colours and contrasting prints soon pushed all thoughts of a Slanket from my mind.
I’m looking forward to wearing all the romantic, floaty styles coming for Spring 2012, so I was particularly pleased to spot an abundance of chiffon and pastels. This gorgeous beaded dress has a 40s feel about it too – perfect for fans of the vintage-inspired look.
I wore my vintage leather pencil skirt, a mint green jumper from Forever 21, grey flats c/o Sarenza and my faithful ASOS necklace. In hindsight, the leather skirt was probably not the best thing to wear on a 2.5 hour train ride. Luckily I regained my circulation when I got off!
The lovely people at Very were kind enough to provide us all with a generous goody bag – mine included a beautiful red lipstick from Daniel Sandler and these amazing leopard print brogues. J’adore!
It was great to see some of my old favourites – Kristabel, Becca, Kavita, Lily, Tor, Reena and Sophie – as well as meet some new bloggers I’ve been following for a while – Clare, Susie and Kim. Thanks Very!
