Silverburn Live Fashion Weekend – TopShop & Yo Sushi


You know the hour when Paris Hilton probably goes to bed and Branjelina’s nanny is spritely tending to their mountain of kids?  SEVEN.  Friday was an early start (early for me at least and yes, I know for a lot of you that’s just normal but for me… it’s not normal or polite or friendly).

So why?  Well, I put in a little time at work before heading off to enjoy a morning blogger introduction to Silverburn’s Live Fashion Weekend.  First a talk through the SS12 TopShop trends from the lovely girls instore followed by some time trying them out – I can’t lie, I’m not sure any of those trends were quite right for me (or my age) but a tour of the floor soon led me to the fitting room with an armful of cleanly cut pieces.  You can see some of what I tried below (still dreaming of that cream sleeveless knit…) but I’ll show you what I brought home with me in tomorrow’s post.

Next a stint in the fashion lounge where I had the pleasure of meeting the PR ladies of Silverburn (thanks for having us!), sipped some mini elderflower mocktails and chatted fashion and blogs.  How cool is the photobooth which I hopped into with Lynne – that’s how you make friends with someone… fast!  Sooo want one of them at my next party – it uploads straight to Facebook where you might have already seen the passport snaps.

Naturally we worked up an appetite so were only too happy to take full advantage of a lunch at Yo Sushi which tasted just as good as it looks!

I wore this Sugarlips top but backwards for a change!
