Last night I went to the Essex Style Show at Luxe bar in Loughton - massive let down.
I don't know where to start. It STANK of vomit (really it was all you could smell), the stalls where all over the place so you barely move and there was a massive fake tan stall RIGHT in front the bar- which was clearly understocked and charged £5 for a small glass of wine! There was meant to be a fashion show (ha)- I feel sorry for the models who where made to stand and wait in the street then ran through the bar in a conga line! It was clearly over sold as such actually looking at he majority of the stalls was impossible- and such a lack of photos.
Me and Chris ended up chatting to some of the stall owners moaning outside so we werent alone thinking it as awful.
But the plus side we actually spent a good evening together even though we stuck out like a sore thumb, and I did see a few awesome Essex based brands I liked- and I'm going to spend my day off stalking them online. Fortunately the majority of the crowd was swarming around things coveted in sequins so me and Chris could have a good look at the things I liked.
I LOVED Pip Jolley. Plus Pip was a pleasure to say hello to.
All the drive home I couldn't stop talking about their beautiful pin roller necklace. I jumped right on their site as soon as I got home. Possibly my favourite (its hard to choose) is this pink vintage curler, I love at vintage pieces are given a new life like this, and love this cutey in green. I wish I had £180 for this beautiful ring :,(
Plus Pip and her model were wearing beautiful dresses from Vivien of Hollway which are unbelievable- all of a sudden I want to get married to wear one of their bridal gowns.
Clothing wise I loved MKD rocks- Chris loved it too as not only were their styles amazing but were the only stall with anything for the men. Plus the kind ladies on the stall were really nice (basically if a brand wants to appeal to me- be nice to me), and had amazing jackets on.
Look at those Beanies! and that squiggly/ zebra dress! All the customided Denim made me and Chris very happy- possibly our favourite item was this shirt, and this skull embellished dyed dress, and this denim jacket.
Me and Chris felt a bit uncomfortable so left quite early and chatted the whole way home about the things we liked (Pip Jolley and MKD Rocks mostly).
I suppose I better show you what I wore- I apologise for the awful lighting.
Beanie: The Ragged Priest
Shirt: Charity Shop
Bag: River Island
Oversized denim jacket: charity shop
Bow: Crown and Glory.
It's my Ragged Priest beanie again (barely left my head!) and my favourite heels from Missguided. My favourite bit of the whole outfit is my Crown and Glory bow tie. There's not a great deal I can say about my look today but I thought it would be "safe" at the show but I still felt out of place.
