Fashion Event: The Golden Ticket Event at Westfield London

7 Apr

So two consecutive Westfield posts…. it may be becoming my favourite shopping destination! Today I’m blogging about their Golden Ticket Event which took place on Tuesday night, which I can barely remember due to the copious amounts of free alcohol!

With promised discounts, freebies and cocktails, there were plenty of stylish people queuing to get in. I was pleased to see it was, as promised, an exclusive event, open only to ticket holders and felt rather important walking down the sparkly gold carpet!

The first bit of entertainment was a performance from up and coming girlband Parade. I presumed they were just another girl band with good looks and excellent styling (sequins, heels and leather shorts) but their acoustic version of Cee-Lo Green’s ‘Forget You’ really won me over. I also LOVED Lauren’s sequinned trousers, which she told me she bought from ASOS… but I can’t find them on there now booo!

Soon after the performance, fellow blogger Madison arrived and we headed straight to our favourite store… Mulberry! There was a lengthy queue, but we were kept occupied by free booze and people watching. Here we had the opportunity to win a Mulberry Tillie *sigh* and experience the Mulberry photo booth which was great fun (as you can tell!).

Hershesons were on hand to let us try on wigs and hair pieces. As Madison and I have too much hair to consider either… we tried on some coloured streaks and hair bows instead!

There was a sudden commotion and we realised it was none other than Naomi Campbell opening her pop-up store Fashion for Relief. We attempted to use our blogging credentials to get into the private party and failed, whilst Sophie Ellis-Bextor swanned straight in… ah well!

Having had 3 cocktails, 2 glasses of champagne and a tequila shot (I never drink tequila unless I’m TOTALLY wasted)… food was a necessity and we managed to get our hands on one mini fruit tart and a mini eclair (a nutritious dinner or what?!). Alcohol + mini desserts = ridiculously happy bloggers.

We then stumbled upon some more entertainment in the form of erotic ballet dancing. What amused me most was the religious looking lady covering her son’s eyes in the middle picture… haha!


We headed towards Toywatch to enter their competition and on the way introduced ourselves to blogger and DJ Bip Ling who was wearing AMAZING floral wedge shoes… which the security guard taking the photo clearly didn’t notice….!

Grabbing another glass of champagne we headed to Kurt Geiger… most definitely a dangerous activity when under the influence of this much alcohol. I literally fell in LOVE with a pair of shoes… yes I may have had beer-goggles on… but I’m sure they were THE ONES. They were comfy(ish) 5 inch heels, which could be worn both day AND night. The price was a less attractive £120. I drunkenly tried to persuade the salesman to give me a discount at which point he told me they’d closed 10 minutes ago… Whoops!

Stumbling out of the store, I had the dutch courage to ask complete strangers whether they’d like to appear on my blog for being their stylish selves… these two sets of ladies were my particular favourites.

On the left are the beautiful ladies who work at Whistles, Westfield… I loved the pleat skirt combined with the leopard print platforms and vintage scarf. On the right were some lovely girls also enjoying the free booze as it was one of their birthday’s. Wearing a midi high-waisted skirt, moccasins, timeless Mulberry Bayswater AND a bright blouse…. what trendsetters!

The evening had flown by and I must say Westfield London certainly know how to throw a party. It was a fabulous night… even if I only partially remember it!
