I got myself some vintage leather shorts for £20 from Topshop's vintage section in the basement. I love them. I didn't try them on because I just wanted to get home and into my bed after two weeks of non stop work and a 4am wake up a photoshoot, so I ran in and ran out without having tried on the vintage shorts despite the no refund or exchange rule on the vintage clothes. Luckily, they are the perfect fit! Tight on the midrif and loose on the legs; a nice A Line shape. Also, long enough and modest enough to wear without tights. Much better than the £70 Topshop bum skimming ones I considered buying not so long ago. I shall wear them to the pub later tonight <3
St Martin's Courtyard's garden party was beaaaautiful. The atmosphere was so relaxed, the weather was perfect and everyone was smiling. Facepainters, magicians and beauticians kept the crowd entertained during the fashion show's intervals, and Sunday Girl performed 3 acoustic sets. Oh my. She is stunning, and so is her voice. She wore an amazing mint green blazer and shorts, and socks with her heals. Everyone thought she was one of the models we were waiting for when she turned up promptly and pleasantly at 10am, with her enviable limbs and glamourous hair. We showed her around the ridiculous vacant flat where the hairdressers and make up artists were setting up for the models, a mere £6,000 a month space... She seemed happy, and through out the day she popped in and out of her rehearsehal space to come chat to people, eat some strawberries and have a drink in the kitchen. Even though I was working on a Saturday, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The first stress-free event I have worked at. I was basically a dresser backstage all day, and met some lovely girls. Little bit of networking. And a quick drink in Bill's after, and for the first time in my life I could say "5 Hedgerow Fizzes on the tab, please".
Regent Street held their annual event Regent Tweet, where female bloggers and technology totties come together - some even travelled from France, Belgium, Germany and Sweden. There was champagne, free gifts, a sort of treasure hunt for the girls where they had a pack of cards with different shops on Regent Street giving away prizes. They were "tweeting" not stop which was displayed on the Live Wall the design team created to show in the Swarovski Crystalised Lounge. If you're intrigued to know more, pop onto the website that the guys at work built - www.regenttweet.com . It was a fun event to help out on - and would recommend you bloggers try to get involved next year. xxxx
Wandering around during my lunch hour often leads me to find amazing little places; I've found so many cute pubs, cafés and boutiques down the backroads of central London, but it has also made me realise just how close some of the most coveted, bespoked, expensive shops are. For instance, not so long ago, I casually strolled past the Jenny Packham boutique. Sound familiar? Well, it should. The beautiful Blair Waldorf is a fictional fan, and the Duchess of Cambridge herself approves. But, who wore it best? I can't even choose, both definite girl crush contenders. I was tempted to go but my Casio told me to hurry back to work after my quick stint in Marc by Marc Jacobs.
