Last night the Leeds RAG Fashion Show put on a WRAP party at Harvey Nichols to celebrate their success following last weeks fashion show. Harvey Nichols were kind enough to host the little soiree, opening their doors just for all the lucky Leeds students offering 10% discount in store and free drinks at their pop-up bars placed on every floor.
It is not often that us students get treated like VIPs but with the Harvey Nichols team on hand, offering free makeovers and styling tips it sure made for a fun night. Much to my sadness my DSLR had to stay safely in my bag all night with no photography officially allowed. But hey, they never said no instagramming! So apart from a cheeky outfit post shoot post a few too many cocktails, you can have a sneak peek into my night though my trusty little iPhone as a sort of 'instapost'.
What I'm Wearing: Nasty Gal Shearling Jacket, Gap Silk Tank, Topshop Floral Trousers & Kurt Geiger Boots.
And say hello to my gorgeous friend Hayley. Little did we know we were wear colour coordinated outfits to this event. Matching!
What Hayley's Wearing: Nookie Jacket & Skirt, H&M Top, New Look Boots & Fiorelli Bag.
The clocks struck 6 and out came the specially design merchandise for the exclusive event.
Flashing your student card on entry, saw the return of a handful of free drink vouchers *oh hello* which were available to use on all of the strategically placed bars on each of the 4 floors of the Leeds store.
With the drinks flowing Hayley & I browsed though the store looking at all the beautiful pieces that were featured in last weeks show. Despite the rather enticing 10%, the Moncler Bomber and patent Louboutin's were still rather out of my painfully limited student budget *sigh*.
I seriously need this Maison Scotch jacket in my life!
The store was looking as beautiful as ever with wonderful visuals and gorgeous garments on display.
The gorgeous Lavinia at the Trish McEvoy counter gave us both makeovers after deciding that neither of us had done our make up to any form of acceptable standard. She used a lip product called 'instant pick me up' which is a clear gloss that intensifies your natural lip colour, I spent the whole night walking around with luscious red lips without worrying if there was lipstick on my teeth. Strongly recommended product!
What do you think?
Of course we had to stop off at Yo Sushi for a quite bit, that smell is just too hard to resist!
Cheeky little selfie snap.
Glittery blue Miu Miu, oh how I love you.
So, I need this Celine sunglasses in my life. My favourite fashion blogger Audrey of 'Be Frassy' wears them in all her posts and they serious work with everything. Check out her Paris based fashion blog here.
These vintage style watches by Olivia Burton were positively divine. A new emerging label from London selling some of the most gorgeous watch designs. Think Patek Philippe meets vintage Cartier at extremely affordable prices. Adding one of those to my 'must have' list.
Also adding these to that every growing list (serious almost as long as Santa's naughty and nice list - perhaps longer!?)
Well, of course I couldn't leave without a little something. Thank you to LRFS, Harvey Nichols Leeds and of course Hayley for a glorious night.
(Lets hope my parents pick up the not so subtle hints, after all it is my birthday very soon)
