Harvey Nichols Press Day SS12 'Edit'

....and the press days just keep on coming. As per, they are a veritable cornucopia of next season's prints, colours, fabrics, textures, detailing, embellishments and accessories - along with the usual faces, goodie bags filled with gifts you give to your friends on their b'days, fizz, pretty pastel macaroons (yes, fashionista's do eat naughty things occasionally), and in the case of the Harvey Nichols press day....balloons!

Like a fusion of a sweet shop and the Meadham Kirchhoff  SS12 catwalk show - right down to the fairground-meets-circus-like-balloon arches you entered under - it was a pick 'n' mix of the sweetest selections for Spring/Summer 2012. So here are some of my stand-out pieces, including a cheeky shot of myself and super celeb stylist Sara Darling, modelling Miu Miu's 'Noir Glitter' cat-eye sunglasses, as worn by Madonna on the red carpet for the Venice Film Festival premiere of W.E (read more about those shades in a previous post I wrote HERE).

Oh, and I must mention a wonderful lady called 'Twistina', who was on hand to make anything you wanted out of.....yes you've guessed it, balloons. So liking the odd cocktail as I do, naturally I went for a bracelet like this:
