A couple of weeks ago the most exciting invite landed in my inbox to attend Lauren Popes high summer collection launch with In The Style. I am a huge TOWIE and a Lauren Pope fan (her style is incredible!). I also loved her previous collection with In The Style so i was super excited to see what her high summer collection had to offer. So without even thinking I instantly accepted!
I met up with Megan, Natasha and Jess before hand who I had not previously met before but already read and loved their blogs and I am SO glad I did as they were the nicest! The event was held at the luxurious Sanctum hotel in Soho,London and once we got past the papparazzi we headed up to the roof terrace. We were greeted by a red carpet and individual photos against Laurens background and we quickly realised the amazing tropical theme of the event which was so fitting with the collection and the gorgeous weather! Exotic bar Essex held the mobile vendor of beautiful coconut drinks which as you can see looked absolutely amazing and which I think was probably the most instagrammed picture from the event haha! They also had so many exotic fruits, all which I had never seen before (obviously not cultured enough!) and which you could take a platter away for yourself to try.
Natasha and i on our third cake pop!!
We then headed inside where we got to meet so many other bloggers, it really was such a great turn out of bloggers in support of Lauren’s new collection. The inside was equally as tropically themed with many different cake pops (far too tempting), more exotic fruits and later on some gorgeous mini finger foods were brought out. Mini foods are always so much more appealing to me and they ooze cuteness!
Soon after arriving we got to meet the star of the show, Lauren Pope herself! I definitely fangirled, she is SO gorgeous and slim and looked absolutely stunning in one of her own pieces from the collection. Lauren loved talking with the bloggers and I even got to find out that she is originally from Torquay which I was so shocked by as I could have put money on her being a born and bred Essex girl, its nice to know she still remembers her Devonshire roots! She was also on the arm of Lydia, another fellow TOWIE star due to come back this season,I was in my element! She was also wearing the most gorgeous baby blue tailored suit from the collection which she looked fab in!
I was so excited to then see the preview of her collection on a catwalk modelled by some gorgeous bloggers that I already read frequently! I had already seen a few sneak peeks of the collection on In The Style and they had been amazing. I didn’t manage to get any brilliant pictures from the catwalk shoot unfortunately but I hope you appreciate the atmosphere of them anyway and how gorgeous the pieces are. The collection oozes summer and I am loving the whole pastel theme of it too which has been so popular this season. As Lauren said in her video chat with the Daily mail, which you can watch here, she said that she really couldn’t pick one of her favourite pieces as because she designed it all she loves it all too! I am in the same stance as Lauren as I really did love every piece but if I had to pick it would be the tailored suits, both the trousers and shorts version. I really did love the suit Lydia wore as she looked so good in it. I definitely have a list as long as my arm of what I want to buy.
I then got a chance to head over to the rail and look for myself at the collection and the pastel colours really offset the theme of the rail, it all looks SO gorgeous together, I need it all!! Again I really have to go with the gorgeous baby pink and peach tailored suits,it goes without saying they will look amazing with a tan in the summer!
Lauren Pope even got a picture with herself and all the other lovely fashion bloggers together which was so nice of her! You can even see me on the one on her instagram, typical that I had to shut my eyes though haha!
Out on the red carpet Lauren had lots of press all wanting to get in on the piece of the action, Lauren is such a natural and so easy to talk to, it still feels like a dream getting to chat to the TOWIE star!
I left my house at 6:30am with lovely voluminous hair and by the time I got to Exeter it was flat, typical haha. Anyway I wore an ffomo co-ord, Topshop sandals and ice watch sunglasses!
With the gorgeous Megan,Jess and Natasha! Photo credit to Natasha. I really hope to see these lovely girls again I couldn’t have asked to meet any nicer bloggers to attend with! I was wearing a ffomo floral co-ord which I absolutely loved!
Those 4 hours at the event really did whizz by, it was time to say a bye to Lauren and the amazing bloggers i met on the day who I hope to stay in touch, however far apart we all live! We each got given a very generous and amazing goody bag filled with some well known brands to go away with including,Protein World,Sparkling jewellery,an OOTD slogan tee from her previous collection which is the most appropriate item for all us fashion bloggers! Skin care from sasSKincare,Ardel eyelashes and Ashley Cahill sunscreen which could not have come at a better time for my holiday tomorrow!
Lastly, I would also like to say a massive thank you to Krystal PR for inviting me i had the best time there and the event was SO well organised and so well thought out so well done! Oh and it goes without saying that I absolutely adore the entire new collection, its a big thumbs up from me Lauren Pope and In The Style, you’ll be seeing lots of purchases going out to me soon!
