A few weeks ago I was invited along to the Miss Selfridge high summer press day. A welcome afternoon break in a stressful week, I arrived to a bellini and some beautiful clothing. Florals, tassels, embellishments, sequins, sheer, lace, beading were the main features in the form of playsuits, kimonos, maxi dresses, two pieces and midi and minis, structured and unstructured pieces, it was seriously the perfect collection for festivals. Can I pack it all please? All displayed in the beautiful setting of Salle de Fête at Kettner's in central London.
I fell in love with the mahogany coloured peacock chairs there. I'm on the hunt for the perfect one for our new flat-it's actually got obsessive to the point where I nearly wanted to move into a grubby flat the other day only because it came with a peacock chair. Dan had to have a word with me. Anyway, not only did I get to view the whole collection, I got my hair braided by a lovely girl from Cheeky Parlour, and got taught how to make my own real flower crown (below) by Foxgloves & Glory. Such a pretty press day with some beautiful pieces that left me really excited for summer.
