FASHIONS.NIGHT.OUT.2011.

What a night! One that went from eating candyfloss and sipping lychee martinis, to rollerblading on the top floor of a shoe shop, to having flick books made out of a video of yourself.
Let us begin in The Box Boutique, where we headed first, and the place of candyfloss and martinis (you know a night will be good when these are the first things you're served). The Box Boutique is a recently opened shoe shop galore- with neon lighting highlighting the perfectly laid out shoes.

After having satisfied our cravings for all things sweet, we wandered down a few streets to find the Rupert Sanderson store, just as we were about to go in the security guard told us there was a roller disco upstairs. My response: "Sorry?", my sister's "Let's go!". Having found out that it was indeed related to the Sanderson shoes (of course), up we went to find rollerblades, wigs, and star shaped glasses ready at our disposal.

It was great fun, but I was sad to find out I wasn't so good at rollerblading as I thought I might be...
Next, we walked round the corner to Diane Von Furstenberg, as my sister will begin interning there in New York in a couple of weeks. We were by this point extremely hungry so were only too glad to be served delicious canapes whilst we waited in line to have our flick book made.

After so much excitement, we decided to stroll in and out of a few other shops.

One thing I did notice this year compared to last was how busy it was! Most of the shops had queues coming out onto the street from them, which is a shame as one of the best parts of last year was how open an accommodating all the shops were. But then again, if it's busy it is of course best not to have a rammed shop.
All in all, a very enjoyable night as ever!

Next thing: London Fashion Week begins this Friday.
