The other week NEXT invited me down to London for their Shoebox Jukebox event to showcase all their gorgeous footwear for the new season! Rocking my new pair of suede flats i hopped on the train and made my way down to Shoreditch in preparation for some delicious cocktails, adorable entrees and lots of drooling over shoes – every girl’s dream!
With floor to ceiling displays of platforms, wedges, heels, flats and sandals the summer collection at NEXT is an exciting one! I fell in love with a particular pair of platforms which have sneakily made their way into my collection already – there really are styles and colours for everyone. And in the middle of the event? I giant Jukebox that pumped out killer tunes by event guests instagramming pictures of their favourite footwear…now that’s some serious back to the future stuff right there! In typical xameliax stylee i headed straight for the bar and for the tiers of adorable hand-iced biccies up for grabs that went down ever so nicely with my cosmopolitan!
Around the event there were design stations so you could decorate your own pair of pumps with studs, fabric pens and all kinds of sparkly jewels! And also a manicure table with experts treating lucky bloggers to adorable new nails to show off at the event – such a lovely touch! There were also sneaky dancers that kept popping up when certain songs came on the jukebox and busting out some serious moves in the middle of the make-shift dance floor – Beyonce Single Ladies in those leotards, wowzers!
With adorable and very tasty hors-d’oeuvres floating around and plentiful cocktails and fizz it was a fabulous event filled with top bloggers from across the country of which i was very pleased to be one of! I managed to film a little footage of the night and piece together a mini vlog which you can watch below for more of a sneaky peak inside the event!
A truly great night had by all that’s left me incredibly excited for the new season fashion….bank balance, watch out!
