Mango Stylist Reader Event – Work It

21 Apr

So last week I went along to the Mango Stylist Reader Event. It was advertised in Stylist Magazine and we had to request our tickets via e-mail, I rushed to get one and recieved this lovely invite:

I arrived in good time, only to discover two massive queues sprawling out onto Oxford Street, with my one blocking off the entrance to Bershka! They’d made it so exclusive that there was a guest list and they ticked each of us off as we entered! A tad extreme I thought! Anyway about 15 minutes later I’d made my way in, been given my glass of champagne and had my photo taken:

I was wearing:

ASOS Cropped Cardigan

French Connection Vest Top

Topshop Suede Shorts

Topshop Burgundy Ankle Boots

Mulberry Black Soft Spongy Leather Bayswater 🙂

I was sporting my new favourite hair-do: the Topknot inspired by The Look Show (see the how-to video here)

The event was called ‘Work It’ with Stylist selecting their favourite pieces, my 2 favourites were the white tuxedo blazer and cat print dress (cuuuute!).

I also loved they yellow blazer that fellow blogger and Mango girl PoppyD was wearing, but being the midget that I am, it came down to about my knees!!! Instead I decided to channel my energy into finding the top that the mannequin below is wearing. But it was gone in my size 😦 waaah! I don’t think Mango had stocked up enough… and most of the good stuff was gone by 8pm if not before…

I drowned my sorrows drinking what I thought was a mini elderflower cocktail but it actually turned out to be straight liqueur in the form of St. Germain. It was really delicious… and I might be providing some at my Royal Wedding Garden Party next week!

Anywhooo… I thought with the sun daring to make an appearance of late, I’d consider making some additions to my Summer wardrobe… these two pieces would certainly fit in nicely:

The floral dress could be worn to the park or beach, or dressed up for dinner or a wedding. The stripey number is just so casual chic, and I loved the colour combination, perfect for a bit of sailing… or more likely shopping!

These floral handbags are great for festival season, I love the way the subtle print means they would grab attention whilst going with everything.

I really liked this unusual fan-like bag but was shocked to see the £65 price tag… I could imagine finding something similar in Primark for about £8!

At the end of the night we got goodie bags containing lots of loveliness… my favourite bits were Lipton Pink Citrus tea and a Mango silk scarf which I put on my head as soon as I got on the tube (I do love a good freebie)! An enjoyable evening was had and it was lovely to meet PoppyD, but please stock up more next time Mango!
