Events: Modalu London SS12 press day

Last week I attended the press day for iconic handbag brand Modalu London.

Known for making Pippa Middleton's handbag of choice, Modalu London are experimenting with more modern styles alongside their classic designs for their Spring/Summer 2012 collection, featuring a new mix of fabrics and colours ranging from cool ice-cream hues to vivid flamboyant brights.

Not only was I extremely impressed by Modalu's fresh approach to colour and a more modern wearable style, but I was also surprised by the prices. Although they're slightly more costly than a high street bag, Modalu's handbags are made from quality materials (their leather is beautifully soft and detailed) and prices range from £49 to £220 - definitely worth investing in!

If you're friends with me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter, you will have witnessed me rambling on and on about a competition being run by the fine folks from The aim of the game was to style an outfit choosing from the many amazing pieces available to buy on the site, and the look with the most "likes" on their Facebook page would win a £200 voucher. Here is the outfit I chose:

Amazing, after weeks of online campaigning, I managed to get the most "likes" and win the competition! I have been so very lucky recently, and I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that took the time to vote. I am over the moon, floating on cloud nine, watching flying pigs!

A few days later, the very lovely people at my-wardrobe sent out my prize. It was so beautifully packaged I just had to take a few snaps to show you.

It took a long time to decide what to buy with the voucher, but in the end I settled on something beautiful, sophisticated and that I know will never go out of style.

I am absolutely in love with my new Michael Kors Hamilton Tote bag. It's a true investment piece that's versatile enough to go with any outfit. Not only that, but it's even more beautful in the soft leather-y flesh! I'm afraid I've bagged (see what I did there?) the last one in black, but you can still get your hands on the same bag in brown from

Thanks again to everyone who liked my outfit, and also to the wonderful folks at I truly am one lucky lady.

Events: Calvin Klein CK A/W jewellery & watch collection launch

Today I attended the Calvin Klein CK A/W jewellery and watch collection launch to browse the fine and shiny wares that will be available to buy this season.

Here's what I saw:

This collection epitomises the classic simplicity that Calvin Klein is so well-known for, offering a stunning range of versatile pieces that suit everyone, from your best friend to your elderly grandma. I particularly liked the rose gold pieces, as the softer tone never fails to add a touch of elegance to an outfit.

I really enjoyed the event, and it gave me a chance to catch up with the lovely Karena and Hayley from Fashion Forward PR, as well the beautiful Rosie Fortescue. You may know Rosie from such reality TV show delights as Made in Chelsea, but did you know she also has a blog that documents all of her fashionable exploits? To find out more, visit and have a mooch around.

Rejoice in your finery

Last week I found out that I had won the Young British Designers First Birthday Competition! To enter, you had to choose your dream outfit from items available on the site and submit it through their Facebook page. I am so happy to have won, and I was really surprised I did (despite the fact I entered about 30 times!). My winning outfit was based on a soft palette, which the lovely folks at Young British Designers described as a "Nude Symphony". Apparently they're good with the words as well as spotting fashion talent!

My goodies arrived this morning and they are even more beautiful in fabric-y flesh! - check 'em out.

Dress: Gallery 4
Necklace: Cabinet
Shoes: Aksha Fernandez

As much as I love all of my goodies, I must say my favourite part is the Aksha Fernandez shoes. Look how beautiful they are - such intricate detail!

Not only are they stunning, but they're also insanely comfortable - a real rarity when it comes to heels. I can't wait to bust these bad boys out soon!

I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to Young British Designers for my amazing prizes. I feel like the luckiest girl in the whole world!
