So I retuned from an amazingly fun and fabulous time in London. As you might have read before, I was invited by Voodoo Vixen to visit London Edge, wear one of their gorgeous dresses, roam around the fair and after that party, party, party! And one of the best things was that Miss Claudia June, my pinup partner in crime could join me!
So the morning started super early for me and Miss Claudia, getting up around 5 in the morning. Uuughhhh we are not morning people, but at least we looked awesome! I had spent the night at Claudia’s place so we could take down our pin curls, slap on some red lipstick and go. So we caught our plane around 08.00 and basically slept through the whole flight. As soon as we arrived in London, we dropped our stuff at the hotel, got some full english and took the underground to London Edge. Basically London Edge is a fair where alternative brands present their new collection, where wholesale costumers can pre-order the new collection and people like you and me will experience some serious dress porn. To me it was like clothing heaven, it was so wonderful to experience new brands and be able touch and feel their new clothing instead of buying them off a picture.
When we arrived we were welcomed by the lovely staff of Voodoo Vixen, that offered me the complementary Adeline dress that I had selected and that I absolutely loved and fitted like a glove. This dress is cute as a button! The floral/fruity print is so cute and I love the cutout in the sleeves. And best of all, it was long enough for my Dutch length, and my petticoat fitted perfectly underneath it. After changing in my new Voodoo Vixen dress we got primped up by a wonderful team of hairdressers that manage to get our hair back into shape after our journey.
We made a move towards the Press area, where we met some of our fellow bloggers, and I fell instantly in love with the 4/10 lovely, gorgeous, funny and sweet British Belles and Pixie Cosmina that were attending! It was so wonderfully nice to meet girls just as obsessed with anything vintage as I am. Besides that, they were the sweetest and pretties girls you will ever meet. I was already following these pretty ladies on instagram and I was totally fangirling. There was a chance to make pictures, posing is of course our favorite pinup-pastime.
Later on we had a talk with the lovely Kat Williams of Rock and Roll bride. It was really nice hearing about her accomplishments as a blogger, how she started and created such a successful blog. After that we were free to roam the fair. And oh my, are there some new gorgeous collections coming up! We visited Daisy Dapper, Seamstress of Bloomsbury, Collectif, Hell Bunny, Besame Cosmetics, Voodoo Vixen, Le Keux and many more brands. This was just pure clothing porn. ❤
Later on we were invited to the Voodoo Vixen after party in the Gem Bar in soho, with a DJ, free drinks, VIP area and a Burlesque act. There we really had the chance to talk a bit more and have a drink with these lovely ladies we met, I even gained a British pinup wife, the lovely Miss Amy May, and all these girls I met seriously made the day. Pixie Cosmina, Miss Amy May, Miss Fifi von Fosse, Miss Amber Rose and Alice Nightingale… I have fallen seriously in love with these girls. We chatted for such a long time and I was soooo sad to see these girls leave.
Thank you so much to Voodoo Vixen for inviting me, giving me the chance to meet these girls and have an amazing day! Miss Claudia and I have enjoyed this so much! Oh, and everybody, watch out, because the international Belles will reunite, I can’t wait to see these girls again!
Lots of Love xoxox Miss Ginger Tulips
