topshop – effing brilliant

Outfit: Topshop. Wedges: Topshop Unique. Indigo’s blue dress is here.
Finally posting pictures from the Topshop writing/blogging event held Thursday & Friday to launch their 214 instore magazine.
***
Considering I don’t do public speaking, I was strangely calm. Fashion columnist Indigo Clarke and I both wore Topshop items we chose. My dress is available in the shop but not (currently) on the website. This one would have been a possible 2nd choice. We sat close to the shop windows where people passing by would pop in to have a listen. The event felt intimate and very personable which was the best environment to encourage dialogue while mini cupcakes were passed around. It was brilliant to be face to face with customers and bloggers alike. The Q&A was the best part at the end since it was a chance to answer the questions that all bloggers have had at some point. The night ended with us having pictures taken and chatting with everyone. (More pics on the WDUGT facebook here).
***
On night 2 I wore a floor length tie dye dress with a huge key hole cut out on each side of the waist with the same wedges and a floppy hat.
***
A huge thank you to Topshop, Indigo and to everyone who came out. One topic from the event was us sharing any career high points we have had thus far.
Without a doubt, this was most definitely one of them.
