Carnaby Street/Grazia’s 20% Shopping Night
The place was buzzing, I picked up a gorgeous pair of black, suede ankle boots down from £75 to £60. I’d been eyeing them up for a couple of weeks (I walk past them on the way to work each day) and it was a perfect opportunity to buy. I also got a goody bag for having my picture taken!
I love these shopping events (most recently Vogue’s Fashion Night Out in Oxford Street and the West End, Vogue’s Fashion Night In with online retailers and the Lanes of Mayfair shopping evening/Christmas lights switch-on last week).
Not only are there amazing discounts at your favorite stores, but you can forget all about the wider economic worries at the moment..cuts/redundancies/lack of jobs/students fees..and go back to that fun, frivolous adreneline rush you get from fashion shopping! A feeling that we seemed to have forgotton (or feel guilty about having) in recent years.
The shops all work together and go out of their way to make the experience enjoyable and fun- cocktails, nibbles, in store entertainment, brilliant service..it would be rude not to spend!
Brilliant retailing..I just wish it could happen more often- although not for my bank balance!
