Aztec London With VeryVIP

Yesterday, I had the absolute pleasure of taking a trip to London for a day of blogger-based fun! Firstly, I attended my very first blogger event with the always incredible, Curvy Kate & Fig Leaves - but you will have to wait to hear about this! After this excitement I was lucky enough to snag an invite to the VeryVIP showcase of their new collections and it was FABULOUS!

 
Shirt Dress - Alice & You, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Socks - Topshop, Brogues - Clarks, Bag & PomPom - River Island.

Now, generally, I'm not a fan of big patterns, it just isn't me. However, as soon as I saw this shirt, I knew that I had to have it and I could not be more glad I didn't fight this feeling! This is, without a doubt, the great shirt dress/shirt based item of clothing I have ever owned. The material is soft and delicious, the collar quality is perfect, the pattern is delightful and there is NO GAPING WHATSOEVER!!! Usually, no matter what size shirt item I buy, there is always always gaping on the bust, but not with this bad boy. You can wear it fully done up as I have here, or for a more casual look, unbutton until your hearts content! It is so comfortable and for a full day in London, including lots of travelling, it was perfect.


I was lucky enough to attend BOTH events with my kindred spirit, fairy god mother, eternally ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL and medically tall Em Smyth from Terrible Tumbles (http://www.terribletumbles.co.uk/). Look at that beautiful face!

 
 
The new collections were gorgeous, I can't lie. A lot of 70's inspiration and of course, festival style inspiration which was the theme of the evening! Fringing was back in a big way, which I 110% support, I adore a cheeky bit of fringing. There were a lot of cute floaty dresses, cover ups and kimonos - perfect for throwing on over any number of the denim pieces on offer! Sadly these particular collections were not a part of the So Fabulous range, so only went up to a size 16, but I could still fully appreciate their beauty haha.


My favourite piece from the evening was this STUNNING full sequin top. It was pink but with a gold hue and reminded me of a beautiful salmon, I absolutely loved it and would have snapped it up in an instance if my sizing/their sizing had allowed!


The whole event, as I said, was festival themed - even down to the food! Look how adorable this snack sized fish and chips is, adorable and totally delicious. Naturally, Em and I took total advantage of the photo booth they had set up......


We so sexy.
 
They also had festival hair styling, temporary tattoos and ear piercing on offer. I offer no reward for those of ya'll that can guess which option we chose!
 
 
Naturally.
 
Very were also offering all bloggers in attendance an amazing opportunity to take home their three favourite pieces from the collections! All you had to do was snap yourself holding/wearing your favourite items and share them on social media using the hashtag #veryvip, show the ladies at the booth proof you had shared them and then they packed them up for you to take away! It was such a great blogger bonus and Em got three stunning pieces - including the blue plastic mac pictured above that I was very jealous of!
 
I had such a magical day! It was one of those days where you think 'thanks Universe, you have really done me a solid today'. I can't wait to be able to share the first part of my day with ya'll, including my Curvy Kate #swimstories!
 
Lots Of Love,
