Evelin Brandt 

Last week I had the privilege of being invited to the Evelin Brandt Crave Fashion event hosted at the gorgeous Deans at Queens. A Saturday afternoon spent dressed in something other than jeans and trainers, a 3 course meal, fashion, some bubbles and catching up with friends... I couldn't refuse.

The boutique that is based on the Lisburn road in Belfast showcased their spring/ summer collection from a range of designers. We got to preview the SS16 looks between 3 delicious courses cooked by Michelin star chef Micheal Dean.

I love meeting other bloggers from NI and had the pleasure of meeting fashion and beauty blogger Niamh Kelly and mum to be Ruth from Welcome to Willow Lane.

We saw beautiful airy pieces with earthy undertones, an update on monochrome, bold prints, bright colours and beautiful structures. As my return to work is looming I was inspired by the bold yet feminine structures.

I very nearly reached for the staple jeans for the event but made a last minute decision to wear a dress and leather jacket. The contrast of the sheer, light material of the dress was dressed down with the edgy leather jacket, perfect for the afternoon. I am clearly no fashionista and always reach for safe, comfortable and practical style so loved bumping into Lauren Loving the Threads when nipping into town to get something.

With holiday season fast approaching and days of sunshine and sangria (well we can but dream) ahead, when you are updating your summer wardrobe be sure to pop into Evelin Brandt. Click here to enter for your chance to win £500 to spend instore.

The event raised £770 in donations for Northern Ireland Cancer charity, Pretty in Pink, A very worthy cause.

 Thank you to Margaret and Michelle for the invite to such a gorgeous event right down to the little details, the show was so inspiring and your new collection is fabulous, holding something for everyone.
