Dahlia Blogger Christmas event

As mentioned earlier, me and Kaori went to the lovely Dahlia blogger event on Thursday. I didn't even know that Dahlia had an actual shop (I thought it was online only) until I stumbled upon the boutique sometime in October. It's a small and cozy place, everything is absolutely cute and pretty, when you go in there, you don't even know which direction to look first! I will now take you through the photos of the event. They were giving us these little biscuits which looked so cute that you couldn't simply say no and just walk past. Champagne was also offered, but I didn't have any because I don't really drink champagne. We were invited to take a look at their collection - pieces that were already on sale and pieces that are only coming to the store in about a week. There was a lot of variation in their pieces, as you can see here: lace, shine, glitter, tribal, vintage-look, leather... Basically something for everyone! I met one of my favorite bloggers, Camilla from Into The Fold, and she was so lovely, we had a nice chat about the most random things and also snapped a photo together. This is what I wore that day. I was incredibly stressed for my presentation due the next day, so I decided to keep it simple instead of trying to come up with something very creative. Other than the lovely clothes on show, they had also displayed a lot of nice jewellery, with this one being my favorite. I think a piece like this could spice up any simple outfit, but unfortunately I didn't buy it. We were also offered to get some custom made collar accessories, basically those chains that you stick on the ends of your shirt collar. I got the ones with spikes and with leaves. We all had 20% off, as well as a nice offer from a lucky dip hat (I got 10£ off my purchase as well as the 20% off, and Kaori got a free accessory), so we were not only checking out the collection to see what is up and coming, but also to see what will be coming home with us! We both loved this shirt but were too scared to ask how much it costs (student life, huh?), however Kaori still tried it on and got a lot of compliments from everyone.

Me and Tracey Mitchell, the designer and owner of Dahlia. Very lovely and creative lady, I'm so impressed by all her efforts and how great the shop has turned out!
As I mentioned earlier, I got a huge discount and I decided I can't let that go to waste, so I bought this cute blouse. This was the content of my goodie bag - I must say, they spoiled us a lot! We got discount code for Dahlia, notebooks, a very creative magazine from China, lots of goodies for the skin (in the pink little bag), an amazing nail polish from Ciate, a Dahlia tote bag. And finally, the polaroid! They took a polaroid of each guest and hung it on the wall, it was such a fun thing to do! I love having these kinds of souvenirs which are not only on my laptop but can also be stuck on my wall.
