Where do I start?
Last Thursday I was lucky enough to attend the exclusive opening party of the new Stradivarius Oxford Street store - and it was epic.
The Event Paper, as it's known, was a jam packed fun night of cocktails, dancing, photo shoots and of course a good browse of what Stradivarius has to offer. Stradivarius is a Spanish brand that has recently opened up in the UK, selling clothing, accessories and a little bit of lifestyle goods. Since attending the event, I've made THREE separate orders because I literally can't get enough of all the cool pieces and I've already dreamed up all these little layered outfits in my head that I just had to have. Is it just me or does anyone else not rest until that particular dress or pair of boots is in the post?
So after lusting over 95% of the shop and making a mental note of what was on my purchase list - I headed upstairs to the live photo shoot where we could all choose a few items and get our photos taken by some super fancy fashion photographers - Bèla Adler & Salvador Fresneda . I am absolutely useless at posing and my photos are a little cringe, so whether or not they ever make it on social media is a different story. I chose this wonderful, reversible star print bomber, which is one of the things making its way to me right now.
The night continued with few drinks, a little dancing (Caroline Flack was the DJ), and then me trying to keep my cool when Hailey Baldwin walked in (Hailey actual Baldwin, I know!). She was the event host, and looked every part the supermodel.
Stradivarius is a creative, fun and super affordable brand and I recommend you all take a look right here as soon as you've finished reading. They offer free in-store delivery, and free returns - which is always a bonus! I'll be sure to blog about some of the pieces that I've been buying sometime very soon!
