Moving further away from, well, everything and more events taking place in the week means that I spend most of my time reluctantly declining blog event invitations these days. So I was super pleased to be invited to the Very Christmas party press day which took place back in November (this is an incredibly late post… sorry!) at Very’s amazing office – a mere 30 minute train journey away. Hoorah!
As you’d expect from Very the event showcased the best in sparkles, sequins, velvet and faux fur. As well as some dapper choices for men and some cute pieces for little ones. I really liked that Very didn’t just showcase pieces from their standard collection but they also showed pieces from their petite, tall, plus-size and maternity ranges – meaning none of us were left out. My favourite item of the day was definitely this short pink faux fur coat.
A Christmas outfit of course isn’t complete without fabulous make-up and Illamasqua were on hand at the event to showcase some of their latest products, and they did a makeup demo which I couldn’t tear my eyes away from! The make-up artists were so knowledgeable and so passionate about the products. Suffice to say, I got home and ordered a few bits in the Illamasqua Black Friday sale.
Skin Doctors were also there, a brand which I’ll be honest, was entirely new to me before the event. Skin Doctors offer alternatives to surgery procedures with their instant facelift/eyelift products as well as having a host of everyday products in their range. I brought their ‘Zit Zapper’ home with me, and whilst I (thankfully) haven’t had the opportunity to test it out yet, I’m looking forward to seeing the results once a blemish does inevitably rear it’s delightful head.
The Very Christmas Party event was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon and it was lovely to catch up with familiar faces and meet some new ones. If you’re looking for a party outfit I recommend taking a look at the Very party wear collection.
