Rare & Paprika AW11 Press Day

(Rare & Paprika AW11)

You've probably gathered that I love a bit a' print and I a bit a' florals, but what I love more is dressing up. So I'll admit that to you now that my guilty pleasure is definitely attending Rare's press day every season.
I unashamedly love party dresses (don't believe me look here, here or even here!) and whilst you'll probably never see Alex Gerrard gracing my blog (she was snapped in Acne's extreme dress though) I revel in embracing my girliness and throwing on a good old dress* and a pair of 5-inchers.
On Thursday I popped down to Rare and Paprika's press day to check out their AW11 offerings, and also got my nails generously done by OPI and lashes extended by Lash-Out Lashes- yummy!
I was happy to see that they continued with the floral, print and pleats trends from this season. I adored the floral maxi jumpsuit and turquoise Burberry-esque offering, but my faves had to be the petal-printed one-shoulder number and Paprika's peacock print bustier dress <3 


Thanks to Almina and the team at Rare!

  5. Ah, you went to the press day, I couldn't make it which was annoying as I was looking forward to getting my nails and eyelashes done.
    I love the florals, and that pink pleated skirt is cute.

  6. Lovely pics, gorgeous florals. I was invited too but couldn't make it last minute so am slightly gutted but there's always next time. Would have been great to meet some of you fellow bloggers too :-)
