Last Saturday I attended an event hosted by Matalan held at the five star Bvlgari hotel in Knightsbridge. This particular event was a tad different to the usual types I go to. Still fashion related of course, but involved watching a movie (A Midnight In Paris) with a room full of bloggers.
Upon arrival, I was greeted with a glass of wine and some delicious canapes and desserts. After mingling with my fellow blogger babes, I was then taken for a tour of the latest A/W collection, which is in store now by the way, my eye is on the green tartan skirt and the grey boyfriend jacket. Grabbing more drinks and with a bag of popcorn in tow, we was asked to head towards our seat in the hotel’s own cinema room. The room itself is beautifully laid out with comfy chairs and a slide out tray to place your food and drinks on. Before the movie, a representative from Matalan briefly talked us through the brand’s latest aims and outlook which is to ensure their collections are on trend yet still affordable and to bring more stores to the high street rather than just retails parks. To be honest with you, I rarely shop in Matalan, but after seeing what was on offer at this event, it looks like I’ll be making regular trips there very soon!
I really enjoyed the film, Joanna told me she had watched it so many times before and I can understand why. Deeply inspiring and set in one of the most romantic cities ever, you have to watch it! The event really made my Saturday, I had a lovely afternoon with some of my favourite people, what more could you ask for?
