I was VERY lucky this weekend in that I got to model for FOUR brands (If this is what happens when you take a vow to say yes to everything, it could have been much worse...) and I really want to dedicate a post to each of them because they were all just superb.
Up first; Elvi
Due to me not having reeeeeeeally long arms, I was unable to take pictures of myself (I'm not Mr Tickle. That sounded creepy, I don't like it) so I've relied heavily on the kindness of others here, to whom I am very grateful - Thank you Sara and Donna!
Now less about me, more about Elvi. Anybody who was at Plus North this weekend will tell you just how aesthetically appealing the Elvi stand was, the colour palette was bold and classy, mixing mustard with metallics and tweed with lace and laser cut. Ever single piece was a marriage of classic style and modern shape - Guys, these clothes are quality. I was therefore DELIGHTED when I was told that I would be wearing some of the range for that night's "surprise" catwalk.
My first outfit was a longline lasercut tunic vest, 7/8th legging and a frankly STUNNING mustard yellow crop jacket (which you can't see too well in this picture as I am swinging it around BECAUSE THATS WHAT MODELS DO OK?!?) I'd been eyeing up the jacket on the stand earlier in the day so being able to wear it and maybe even rock it (if I do say so myself) was a huge boost to my confidence.
Quick change into this pleated black maxi skirt which sat beautifully on my waist, the lasercut vest and this absolutely gorgeous metallic cropped jacket which I am buying as soon as it hits the website because it turned me into a 1980s glamour bitch.
Next to something that I never ever thought I'd wear; a longline mustard jersey tunic - I LOVED this - it was just so easy to wear over the leggings and the necklace dressed it up perfectly (For something similar, they have a beautiful Silver Hematite Necklace on their site which I will also be investing in)
Finally, I had fun and games getting into this tie neck black dress with gold eppaulettes (my head is too big and also the wrong way round - hence the sweaty fringe situation above). Another lovely piece, I'm told that when this hits the site there will be more of a split at the neck, on someone a bit shorter than I this would be perfect for the festive season.
It was abundantly clear to me that the women behind this range are passionate about what they design and the women they design it for, this is a beautiful capsule range with pieces that can stand alone or be put together to great effect. I can't wait to see more!
