What with Fashion Month finally over, you’d be forgiven for thinking that style setters all over the world would be kicking back and enjoying some well deserved R&R. I mean, it’s not exactly ridiculous to assume that all the journalists, editors, bloggers and buyers who’ve spent the past six weeks running on minimal sleep and maximum caffeine might be entitled to a few days off. But of course, that’s not the case and the fact that fashion week’s finished sure as hell doesn’t mean that the fashion calendar is any less packed. The AW12 press days are just around the corner and the past couple of weeks have been packed with more parties that even the most committed of social butterflies could hope to attend. Then again, getting a sneak peek at next seasons designer goodies and spending the evenings sipping champagne is hardly cause for complaint. One such stylish soiree was bespoke shoe brand Upper Street’s second birthday bash which they held at the W hotel last week. Like most 20 year old girls, few things make me happier than open bars and delicious footwear so any event that combined the two was always going to be right up my street. In between ogling the AMAZING shoe display and ransacking the cocktail and canape supplies I compared fashion week war wounds (mainly high heel induced) with fellow bloggers Ella Gregory of Coco’s Tea Party and Danielle of Fashionista Barbie. We mingled, we munched, we drank far too much bubbly and at the end of the evening we came away with damn good goodie bags… All in all, not a bad birthday party!
