It was with a little trepidation that I headed out last night to, gasp, my first blogger event hosted by boohoo.com at the –5°C (with ice brought from the frozen Torne river in northern Sweden, no less) ICEBAR. Thirty plus fashion bloggers were already schmoozing, sipping cocktails, nibbling nibbles and getting Christmas photos taken (fun cheesy backdrops plus props – mine was a bit of a fail which is why it’s not in this post… vain, moi?) and checking out the new Boohoo Christmas knits (including jumpers above, hat & wristies below and cosy onesies –
available soon, but I need to find out when exactly available from next week) and Boohoo Boutique party wear while waiting to be escorted downstairs to the actual bar made of ice. While we waited I got chatting to Birmingham’s Fashion Mommy, Lithuanian but London-based Edita from Pret-a-Reporter, TDRheartsNY, Mademoiselle LaLa and the lovely Toni from Fashion Your Seatbelts (keep an eye out for a forthcoming What Is She Wearing?! with Toni). So I snapped a few photos, chatted and then – full disclosure here – dashed off before we actually made it down to the icy bar below. Don’t ask, something to do with the little cookie being tucked up in bed and me having missed his bedtime for the first time ever. Hmmmm. Though when I say dash, it was more of an awkward gambol weighed down with a quite fabulous Christmas gift box courtesy of Boohoo. So there you have it, first blogger event done and dusted. Shop the Boohoo Limited Edition Boutique collection here. And see all the knitb4Xmas Twitter action that went down here.
