Fashion Event: Band Tee Boutique with BooHoo

To celebrate the summer and their festival range, BooHoo kindly invited me and a few bloggers along for an evening of pizza, drinks and band tee decorating. Here's a little look at the evening...

Hosted at their showroom in Carnaby Street, I headed over after work to check out BooHoo's new festival range and customise some band tees. I had never been to the showroom before but it was filled with pretty things and so many amazing items that I can't wait to get for my holiday this August. Complete with glitter, studs and tassels, we all picked our tshirts and sat down to enjoy an evening of pizza courtesy of Pizza Pilgrims (it's amazing if you haven't tried it already) and a variety of soft drinks from Fentimans.

Another added treat was getting to catch up with fellow blogger babe Emma Inks, as well as my old uni friend, Leigh - two of my favourite bloggers. So having gotten glue everywhere, filled my belly with pizza and had a good old natter with the girls - what did I learn from the evening? Well, I learnt that I'm not the best at customising clothing so I think I'll leave it to BooHoo to design the clothes. I decided to keep my designs simple; cutting out the neck to create a choker and then adding tassels to the sleeves.  

On a slightly more personal note, I always get very anxious when it comes to going to fashion and beauty related blogger events. I regularly feel like I don't fit in or belong there alongside other bloggers but this turned out to be a really relaxed and fun event with good food and great company. Huge thanks to BooHoo for a super fun event. It was really great to do something a bit different and within such a chilled out environment too. If you want to check out any of the items featured in this post, you can see Boohoo's Festival Shop here. I was also very kindly gifted with a few pieces from the collection so I'm excited to share those with you guys very shortly. 

Well, that's it for another fashion event. What are some of your favourite key pieces for Summer? Do you have any favourites from the BooHoo festival shop? As always, I love reading your comments so please do leave me lots of lovely ones down below. 

Until next time,

    1. Really?? I've never had that with Boohoo before. Usually everything arrives Next Day whether you order it ND or not. That sucks you've had that problem though :( xx

    1. Oh really? I noticed it was being advertised more in the UK now so I did assume it had been bought out somehow. Didn't realise it was BooHoo though. It was really lovely, thank you xx

    1. Err it's a tricky question really. I don't think there's any set thing you can do to get blogger opportunities but I do think if you work hard then eventually it'll start to show and brands will notice you. I found that once you get one or two gigs, more will come in so it's all down to what you put in to it and sometimes it just takes time.

      I don't think it's a case of "I have a blog, I should get this.." because brands also need to see a return on investment. Get your following up (I'm not sure how many you have or who you are) and I'm sure you'll start seeing things like this. Hope that helps
