For those who weren't "in the know" about the London blogger yard sale that went down yesterday, it was well worth the trip. I finally got to mingle with and meet all my favourite UK bloggers, which was kind of surreal seeing them in 3D when you're so use to their 2D personas. Though not being officially part of the blogger sale, I relished in helping out the lovely Shini from Park&Cube (check out my approval backhand stamp yo) with selling accessories at her booth while she mans the clothing rails. It's all about marketing persuasion people:
"Those sunglasses make your ass look fab!" = SOLD
The turn out was crazy, it was literally waves and waves of fashionistas spawning from what I'm assuming outside the gate? It was impossible to leave your booth to go to the loo without the fear of someone just nicking away your goods, man your battle stations (and use a bottle to pee)! Time flew by surprisingly quickly for the first few hours, we got live music followed by beer and Thai chicken satay (thank you Susie and Steve) complimented with freshly sliced cucumbers and peanut chili sauce with just a touch of lime. As for bargain hunting, for some reason, I was really drawn to exotic skins and managed to leave with FOUR belts (that I would most likely sport as wrist-candy) which came in baby blue ostrich, two in natural beige python, a scarlet red one with scalloped edges and a pair of pony hair oxfords. I find skin textures to be oh so provoking, don't you?
cap BOUTIQUE, sunglasses CÉLINE, top, necklace & earring GIVENCHY, bag PROENZA SCHOULER PS11, bracelets LANVIN & BALENCIAGA (Scarlet Red one from Charlie May at Girl a la Mode), ring MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA, trousers ZARA, belt BANANA REPUBLIC (from Lexi)
Big thanks to all the bloggers and writers for a mind-provoking afternoon!
