event held at house of smith
it's so frustrating as a blogger when you go to an event that is poorly lit (lol blogger problems). aesthetically i love those kind of places as it is totally up my street; giving it more character than a bog-standard building, but unfortunately when you are trying to take photos of that place to show other people it doesn't quite work so well. with what i had i tried to do my best to take some photos that were good enough to use for a blog post, but unfortunately couldn't even try to get a decent outfit shot! i did do a quick snap for instagram if you are interested in seeing which you can click here. so on sunday last week i was able to make my first event of ne1's newcastle fashion week, which was a shame as i'd missed the launch party and also the chance to meet julien mcdonald on another occasion! so finally with a day off work i made it over for the clueless event held at house of smith. there was the opportunity to try clueless inspired cocktails, have your hair and make up done clueless style with topshop and become a fashion sketch with an illustrator. as i was driving i had to opt for the mojito style mocktail which was actually really lovely and as i'd done my hair and make up already i popped myself in the queue to be illustrated. even with an hour wait i'm so glad i did it as i absolutely love the drawing she did of me and can't wait to pop it in a frame. i'm even more impressed as lucky old me when it was my turn to be drawn the lights went off as the film started to be shown so she had to do it with a little spotlight shone of her page. i didn't want to completely miss out of the film, so afterwards i went into a designated area for myself where there was the option to treat ourselves to champagne; not for, designated driver :(, and popcorn with the film. i didn't stay until the end as i went on my lonesome as i didn't know that i could take anyone with me and felt a little out of place but overall i really enjoyed my first event. if anything, the illustration i got was worth driving all the way through for anyway!
