Topshop + Miss Selfridge + Evans +++ = Arcadia!

Tonight was the Arcadia online press event and (in my typical "Tor-is-going-to-gush-now" way) it was super super fun! I met loads of my favourite lovely bloggers, got to see all of the new season collections from Topshop, Evans, Miss Selfridges et al, and best of all, got to try some of the lovely clothes on. Actually, best of all was that a lovely photographer took photos of us trying all the lovely clothes on and we got to take them home to show to you!
One problem was that the vast majority of the clothes on show were in sample sizes. Which I most certainly am not. But the up side of this was that I got to try on some of the sample size Evans stuff, and as I rarely pop into evans, this was a definite bonus; especially given the sequinned glamour-puss nature of their new season collection!
So here I am:
Sequin zig zag dress: Evans, Sequin snake top: Evans, Fur jacket: Topshop, Shoes: Topshop, Jewellery: "models own"(that's a fancy way of saying it's mine!)
On my definite "want" list are the sequined snake top and the cobalt blue ankle boots. Actually, the zig zag dress would also be a complimentary addition to my wardrobe too! I would never need more incentive to shop with the Arcadia group, but if I had, then tonight would have been it. Fun fun fun!
Love, Tor xx
PS - I meet Susie Bubble (!) and was so star struck I had nothing to say! I don't think i've ever met anyone who made me like that before!
PPS - Miggy from Miggy likes the internet is one of the prettiest people I have ever seen (and her blog is great!) and other new (to me, obviously, not really new!) blogs that I can see myself falling in love with are Diamond Canopy and Young Shields!

The zig-zag dress does look pretty fierce on you, if you don't mind a stranger saying so.

Isabel said...

You are just rocking those sequins like no other! I'm seriously obsessed with sequins at the moment.
