Launch Party

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Last week I was lucky enough to attend the launch party as a result of winning two tickets in Really Ree's competition.

I couldn't believe I'd won and kicked myself that only days before I'd decided to wait until payday before placing my first Nelly order. This would have made my decision on what to wear far, far easier!

In the end I went with a floaty black skirt, skinny jeans and a clutch. However, there are no outfit pics, I decided to wait until I got to the venue to take some. But it rained. Oh my goodness did it rain! And I got caught right, slap bang in the middle of it. So, I arrived looking somewhat less glam than I'd hoped.

But, hell, no one there knew me (if you don't count my companion) so I grabbed a cocktail and made the best of it.

Nelly have only recently launched their UK website - there had been quite a buzz on twitter about it, which lead to me checking them out and posting my findings here. But this buzz was nothing compared to that which the launch party created. My timeline was littered with #hellonellyuk tweets and I was so excited to be part of it.

Let me set the scene - we were in restaurant and bar - Aqua London, it had a night club atmosphere, rails of gorgeous clothes, shoes and boots lined up on the bar and in glass cases under spotlights, beautiful people, cocktails, canapés, a nail bar and a rooftop terrace with to-die-for views over London - all set to music from DJ Gemma Cairney.

I made my exit much earlier than I would have liked (I had a train to catch) with an even longer wish list (watch this space), safe in the knowledge that I'd made a new friend in Nelly.

I was tired but buzzing the next day and, if my twitter timeline was to be believed, I wasn't alone. Which just goes to show what a great success the party had been.

I wonder what Nelly will do next?
