Bloggers Love Hub event -10th November – Kanaloa

On 10th November I was invited to join Bloggers and Brands at Bloggers Love Hub invent at Kanaloa Club in London.

As always, it was a perfect opportunity to dress up so I opted for this gorgeous Alexander Wang black leather dress I picked up on Yoox sale.
Made from mid-weight non-stretchy lamb leather, it is perfect for the colder months paired with boots and a coat. I am particularly fond of the deep liquorice colour and this dress can just do the trick for an edgy day look, or a sultry night dress-up.

I have teamed it up with Marc Jacobs block heel ankle boots I also picked up on Yoox and contrasted the outfit with this super slick EREMETT pink Stingray Leather Clutch.

The  event showcased the brands I had a chance to meet at the previous events organised by Bloggers Love including, Kisses by Coco, Want Her Dress, Glowbeads and Scarves BY MY.

Kisses by Coco is a label set up by Nonto Li and an online boutique selling feminine and stylish pieces. My favorite was this monochrome jacket.

This time round, I had an opportunity to talk to Carol Hanson – the founder of Want her Dress – an online shopping destination for trend-led women with a flair for fashion that offers very wearable and affordable pieces of clothing and accessories.

Scarves By My was another brand I am very fond of. Their beautiful, digital print scarves combining a beauty of luxurious silk and craftsmanship of design, make a perfect treat for yourself or a cool present for the family fashionista.

Heidi & Adele is an up-and-coming luxury label offering gorgeous and super stylish leather clutches, handbags and card holders made from ecologically and responsibly sourced leather. I must admit, I fell in love with a couple of clutches that are now on my wishlist…

What I liked about Heidi & Adele’s pieces was the simplicity of design, luxurious feel of the leather and fabulously bright colours. Combined with black finish, they are innovative, eye catching and dazzling with creativity. Just superb!

I had a chance to chat to the stylist from Umberto Giannini who recommended a couple of their styling hair products as well!

Another brand I enjoyed meeting was Hire the Catwalk, the online rental of designer dresses for special occasions and event that also featured their pieces on the catwalk. Don’t be caught in the same dress ever again!

On Monday, 3rd November I attended Bloggers Love Hub event organised by Danielle at the celebrity hotspot – Mahiki in London. The event brought together a number of fabulous brands and bloggers.

The event brought together a number of fabulous brands and bloggers. The idea behind the get-together was for the bloggers to chat, exchange tips and meet with up-and-coming brands, of course.

I decided to wear this vibrant green Rokanda Ilinicic skirt and JOSEPH navy cashmere cropped jumper I featured recently on the blog.I teamed the outfit with this 3.1 Phillip Lim Minute clutch Bag in a demure midnight navy and these CHLOÉ calf leather two tone Moccasins. I popped on my favourite Links of London Watch Over Me necklace to finish the look.

One of the beauty brands I really liked was the Charcoal-Spa. Represented by Claire Hultton, the make offers a fantastic range detoxifying skin products including the salt scrubs, face masks and soaps that cleanse skin removing the daily built-up of impurities. Beautifully packaged, they make a perfect present!
