Victoria's Secret Bluewater Grand Opening

I adore Victoria's Secret ever since I stepped foot in one of their stores in America. So pink and pretty but sexy and luxurious. We all wish we could be a VS angel don't we?!
I am yet to visit a store in the Uk and have been meaning to take a visit, but tonight, Victoria's Secrets sprung a surprise on me! 
Myself and Kelly nipped into Bluewater after work to buy my husbands birthday presents, in our routine way, we enter the centre and walk to the right, but tonight we switched it up and walked to the left! Daring I know!
Before we knew it we had stumbled across something amazing!!! There in front of us with all it's glossy beauty was the UK's next addition to the Victoria's Secret family, a massive store in Bluewater! 
We rushed up to the roped off entrance asking when the store was opening, she replied that it was friends and family but we were allowed in!!! 
Eeeek! We were so excited! The store was amazing! It was like stepping back to my holiday in America, winged maniquinnes, diamante encrusted bras and a whole beauty and fragrance area. We were greeted by at least 5 members of eager and equally excited staff. I could have spent thousands, but had to restrain myself! 
I picked up a few cute bits and treated myself to the new frangrance brought out this week. 
Next door to the main VS store is the seperate Pink store, the only stand alone Pink store in the UK.
We can't wait to visit again and treat ourselves to some cute bikinis, sexy pj's and some stunning underwear!
VS is located on the ground floor of Bluewater.

Sixties Gucci Glam

Frida Giannini brought the swinging sixties to the catwalk with her use of Jean Shrimpton lookalike models for the Gucci show at Milan Fashion Week. 
Her use of era style pastels, mixed with textures of leather and jewels made this collection transport you back to London with the sophistication of Monaco in the Sixties. A line dresses made from soft Napa leather in shades of cornflowers blue and sage green were twinned with luxurious fur coats. 
For the evening, the dresses were plainly cut but embellished with jewels and worn with knee high boots.
This show really took me back to the The Swinging Sixties but with all the Gucci glam!
