Flemish fashion glossy Glam*it organized a wonderful Fashionably Late shopping event in collaboration with UK retailer River Island tonight.
Only 150 people got an invitation to join these festivities – including champagne, candy, the chance to win a 750€ giftvoucher and of course the 20% discount on the entire new collection- and I was one of the lucky winners of an invite, hooray! Since I had the opportunity to bring someone, I decided to ask Lisha from Joliette to join me as partner in crime.
I just got back from the event at the River Island shop in Antwerp and have to confess that I let all my guards down, meaning my loot is quite considerable (even after a previous shopping experience at RI only 2 days ago): two pairs of wool knee socks (one of my favourite items for next Fall) , a yellow skinny jeans with special zipper details, a cowlneck wool vest in petrol and a lovely white statement t-shirt (you can see it in the pictures below)… Lisha scored a cute black clutch (or was it a wallet? ;-D ) and a necklace I wished I had bought aswell, a small skeleton wearing a crown.
It was a short but lovely evening with lots of bloggers, nice music and a loooong queue in front of the changing rooms and cash register… The Glam*it readers were on a mission, that was very obvious!
Below you can see the small picture report I made of the evening, hope you enjoy it! Sorry for the bad quality of some pictures , but the combination of hands full of clothes, camera and drinks did make it quite a challenge for me to make decent photos (hey , a girl must know her priorities, right?).
I want to thank Els from Glam*it for inviting me, I had a lovely time, hope you enjoyed it aswell! And ofcourse the lovely Cathérine, who’s rocking her intership at the fashion glossy many girls dream of working for! Last but not least my ‘partner in crime’ Joliette, I always have a great time together with ya, laughing about stupid stuff and more ;-)
With love, Nona
