A Wallis Wonderland

Posing at the Wallis Christmas Blogger Evening Event

Last Thursday I was invited to spend an evening surrounded by Wallis’ AW12 Christmas collection - it was a true Wallis Wonderland! Guests browsed through the new collection while quaffing Champagne, sandwiches and cakes (mini éclairs - nom nom nom!). There were sequins, bold prints and snuggly knits galore. Many of the items have yet to appear online or in stores, so we were treated to a sneak peak of all the exciting new pieces about to launch.

Wallis Blogger Christmas Event

Alongside the rails of clothes and accessories was a dedicated photo studio manned by the ever-so-lovely Phil from Street Peeper. It took me two glasses of bubbly to build up the courage to step in front of the camera, but I'm glad I did as it gave me the opportunity to try on one of Wallis’ gorgeous new season coats. But I’m sure you’ll agree it’s the blue glasses that really make the outfit...!

Lots of Wonderful Warm Clothes!

Wallis is a new favourite for me; I lusted after one of their maxi dresses during the summer and the various visits to their site to check ‘my dress’ was still in stock frequently ended with me getting distracted and browsing their new arrivals page.

Favourites from the Wallis Christmas Collection

Favourites from the Christmas showcase evening include; the black and gold sequin dress, the houndstooth coat (which I tried on) and the simply wonderful red swing coat (also available in black).

Sequins, sequins and more sequins!

While we’re on the subject of Wallis, I'm delighted to report that I was the lucky individual to win their #WallisWednesday Twitter competition last week. Every week Wallis fans tweet their favourite item with the hash tag above and one winner is chosen at random, last Wednesday it was me! I chose a wonderful pair of black knee-high boots with a tassel on the zips, that I simply cannot wait to receive. As soon as I have them I’ll make sure I include them in an outfit post, so keep an eye out for them.
