And this is what I wore …
I thought I’d get this post up pretty quickly as I’m jetting off to Vienna tomorrow morning and won’t have chance to update my blog over the weekend! So I want to say a huge thank you to the lovely Analise at Motel Rocks for inviting me to the exclusive blogger preview of the new vintage collection, which took place last night. Stupidly, I forgot my Canon so I ended up snapping a few shots on my phone instead (which only just managed to hold charge – thank you aeroplane mode!). I had a fantastic evening sipping on cranberry juice from a teacup (the alternative was wine and I unfortunately had to drive later on) and perusing the rails of brightly coloured prints and re-worked vintage items. Having chosen a couple of to-die-for pieces that I simply couldn’t not have, I was cajoled into having a set of false lashes applied by the lovely ladies from The Vintage Cosmetic Company. Admittedly, my lashes are quite long anyway so I was a bit apprenhensive but I had the ‘Kitty’ lashes and couldn’t believe how full and feathery they looked! They took 2 minutes to apply with a thin layer of glue and peeled off just as easily afterwards – seriously impressed! I was over the moon when I discovered I’d been given a couple of extra sets in my goody bag.
I have to admit that I was very nervous before the event, I wasn’t sure who was going to be there or what to expect so I was relieved when Jess from Copper Garden contacted me to arrange a coffee beforehand! Although once inside, the venue was cosy and intimate, meaning you got to talk to all the bloggers who’d been invited. I met some really lovely girls and definitely have some new details to add to my contact list!
To peruse the fabulous #MotelVintage collection for yourselves, head to 71-73 Great Portland Street, London (literally right by Topshop on Oxford Street) between 10am and 7pm until the 1st of August (it’s a 2-day pop-up shop so get there quick!). You’ll get free drinks and nibbles while you shop and a special goody bag if you spend over £75 (not hard to do – trust me!).
What are you waiting for?!
Love, Beth xo.
