Monday night was the fabulous Independent Fashion Bloggers Dress up party at Last Days of Decadence in Shoreditch.

Despite having to leave a little earlier than I would have liked (yesterday was a trauma of tubes and train journeys!) I had a fantastic time and would like to shout a special thanks to Mademoiselle Robot for organising such a fantastic event.

I’m just waiting for the results of the raffle to be announced so I know if I won anything amazing!

The Cigarette girls, dressed in Vivien of Holloway, dished out sweeties and discount vouchers, and generally gave a feeling of glamour to proceedings

There was also a fantastic space age 60s burlesque routine from Agent Lynch.


Some of the fabulous members of IFB were there. And I met, among others

Reena of Fashion Day Dreams in a gorgeous sculptural white skirt and Jennine of the Coveted and IFB looking stunning in red.

The best I can do with full length photos of my outfit is this


I was wearing a floral strapless dress with a bow detail on the waist, which will be available on Retro Chick from next week! I wore it with black patent hidden platform heels from Faith, a black vintage clutch and a black blazer with sculptural shoulders from the Warehouse sale. Apparently I also teamed it with a stupid grin a lot of the time, but it was so nice to meet people that it was difficult to work mean and moody!

It was such a great chance to meet people and I sincerely hope it becomes a regular London Fashion Week event!
