Atelier-To-Go SS13 Launch Event + Competition

This week, I was lucky enough to be invited to Atelier-To-Go's "Yummy Mummy Coffee Morning" to introduce bloggers to their SS13 collection (I'm not a mummy, and I'll leave the yummy assessment up to you, but it was nice to be asked anyway!).

As well as guzzling some delicious mini pastries and glittery purple cupcakes, I got to indulge in an amazing organic facial with Abi from Essential Care - I picked up a ton of useful tips, and would never have believed I'd happily spend the rest of the day barefaced, resisting the urge to crack out the concealer - more than reason enough to encourage me to invest in some yummy coconut and rose petal based goodies of my own!

But of course, the highlight of the day had to be getting up close and personal with some brand new designer lovelies. Atelier-To-Go collate the cream of the mid-high end crop, from brands such as Alice+Olivia, Paper London, J Brand and Mark Fast. They specialise in ultra-luxe must-touch-to-believe investment basics, with the perfect jeans, slinky trousers, jackets, sweaters and shirts available in virtually every style and colourway under the sun.

That's not to say that they don't also boast a ridiculously delicious selection of party dresses... This beaded Alice+Olivia number was a favourite at the event (click here to view onsite). The embellishment gives it a '20s feel, brought up to date with a bodycon silhouette and stunning sheer back with exposed zip detail.

These statement monochrome and hot pink Paper London dusters deservedly grabbed their fair share of attention...

The ultimate sports luxe cover-up by Elizabeth and James - one of my favourite SS13 jackets...

Along with this one, the perfect wear-anywhere spring tweed by IRO (click here to view onsite)...

One of Markus Lupfer's iconic graphic sweaters...

Bold, bright and beautiful was a recurrent theme - this Richard Nicoll shift is strictly limited edition, with all proceeds going to charity!

Gorgeous Grecian-style statement-but-uber-wearable jewellery by Lara Bohinc, lust-have clutches, and essential summer basics...

More than welcome at 9am...

And just as welcome at 10.15!

Inside my goodie box - a scrummy Rituals reed diffuser, Beauty Kitchen shower gel and Essential Care eye/lip liner (the logistics of this confused me at first - it's brown, cunning), plus a couple of handy discount vouchers.

We also got to style our very own yummy mummy to kick off the #AtelierGirlDressUp blogger competition! (I put her in the IRO cream jacket along with some knockout cropped floral trousers).  To be in with a chance of winning a Rebecca Minkoff bag of your choice, plus an invite to Atelier-To-Go's launch party on 21st March, simply create an "Atelier Girl" mood board, featuring an outfit put together from your top Atelier-To-Go picks. Tweet your entry to @Atelier_To_Go and follow them on Pinterest to enter (see the board for inspiration) - the winner will be chosen on Monday 18th March. Good luck!

  1. What a great invite! Looks like you had a wonderful time. Oh, those desserts (I'm such a sugar fiend).


    1. It was amazing - would have been worth it for the sugary and skin treats alone!
