Friday, 14 November 2014 Party In Style Event with Company and Cosmopolitian magazine.


It's party season, which means it's time to make way for sequins, glitter and shimmer galore. 

Last night I attended's Very In Style event featuring Cosmopolitan, Company and Reveal. 

The event was showcasing Very's Party Edit collection, some of which was designed by TOWIE's Sam Faiers. 

Held in London's OXO Tower, the entire event overlooked the illuminated Thames whilst us guests had a good ol' browse. 

I must say I was really surprised by the collection. I've never really considered as a place to shop before, and I always struggle around this time of year to find a party outfit that suits my grungier sense of style, but there was so much in this collection that I wanted. 

Champagne in hand, I scoured the rails taking in the surprising amount of bright shades featured in this collection. Yellows, greens, reds, pinks and blues all made an appearance, which I find quite unusual for a Winter collection of any sort. I'm pro colour for winter, so I was really pleased by this. 

I had my eye on one particular dress which I've singled out in a picture above: the green baroque style mid-length bodycon. It's so me, and since dying my hair purple, I think it would make quite a statement piece. 

The event was so lively, with DJ Fabienne playing some awesome music (walking in to Bootylicious put me in the perfect mood) , whilst we all drank champagne, ate canapes and had our hair and makeup done by Babyliss and Bourjois. 

I spotted some gorgeous ladies whose outfits I adored, so I just had to take a picture; one of them being the stunning Leanne Lim Walker. 

The runway show was the perfect end to the night, giving us all ideas on how to style our party wardrobe this season.

Jewellery Lust : Lost at Sea


Bags, shoes, hats, scarves etc etc. Everyone has a vice when it comes to fashion. That one thing that they're addicted to and will never stop buying no matter how much they have. Well I have two: shoes and jewellery. 

I've already done two Jewellery Lust posts featuring Black Tied and The Rogue and the Wolf , and with my addiction ever growing, it looks like it's going to become a regular feature, so I thought I'd explain what it's all about. 

I think it's really important to support new, growing brands, and they're a great place to shop if you're looking for something a little bit different. I'm noting with the high street that you won't have to go far before you bump into someone wearing the same thing as you, and some of the products are a bit over-priced. Online brands are a great way of developing your individual style and spotting new, emerging trends whilst potentially grabbing a bargain, so each of these posts are going to focus on one particular brand.  

This week, that brand is Lost at Sea Jewellery. I discovered them through Instagram (which, by the way, is a brilliant place for finding new brands), and adored their style. Selling not only jewellery, but homewares too, this is one of those brands which makes me want to fill my house with they're entire stockroom. 

I mentioned in my first Jewellery Lust post that I was noticing an emerging trend in ethereal and spiritually themed jewellery. Now that was back in March and the trend is still going strong. Think hamsas, buddhas, pentagrams, semi-precious stones, cuffs, chokers and amulets. 

What I really love about Lost at Sea jewellery is that their products work well with any style. I'm a bit of a grunge fiend, but at the same time I like to look feminine, and Lost at Sea jewellery helps to pull it all together. 

I recently ordered their Albirio Coin Collar Necklace in both silver and gold, and I haven't stopped wearing them. They're so dramatic and are timeless statement pieces. At only £12 each I thought it was a steel, especially compared to high street prices. 

I'm currently in the throws of redecorating my room, so next on the agenda is some Lost at Sea homewares. It'll be dream catcher galore!
