I just got back from the River Island press event for their spring/summer 2011 collection and it was great! The clothes I saw were nice, I am not completely crazy about the pieces I saw but I do love the “trends” they are presenting. A bit of fifties influence, a bit of Marc Jacobs S/S 2011 inspiration (that seventies disco collection) and, as always, DELICIOUS shoes and bags and whatnot. I tried on a floppy seventies hat that I found on the floor and I intend on buying it one of these days, it was absolutely perfect. I’m kind of tired now so I’m not in the mood to get into all the resizing etc, but I’ll upload a good bunch of pics from the event tomorrow!
I had a blast with my model friend Paulien who invited me there (thanks again sweetheart!).
This is what I wore, something very simple that would represent my style and that I’d feel comfortable in. Feeling comfortable in your own skin is key when meeting up with models, stylists and all kinds of gorgeous girls at some event as a rookie blogger. My lace bodycon dress, my new vintage shoes (loooove), one of my signature flower headbands (got complimented on it by another blogger at the event!), a simple black blazer and my leopard coat because it was cooooold! There were loads of other important fashion people in gorgeous outfits, which was very cool. I even networked a bit, but that wasn’t all that hard since the girls present were all just super sweet.
Check out my blog to see the pictures when I get around to posting them (maybe even before I go to bed)!
EDIT: so yeah, I went ahead and uploaded the pictures already! go check it out!
