Blinking Lights

Last Thursday I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with these beautiful dresses at the launch party for Blinking Lights - a new and exciting fashion label specialising in gorgeous dresses and accessories, all designed and handmade in London by the lovely Anna Ackred (pictured below with some of her fabulous creations!)


I brought my very good friend (and fellow pretty dress connoisseur) Anna along with me! After catching up over a glass of fizz and a cupcake we got down to the business of the day - drooling this beautiful collection!

I wore my beloved Petit Bateau stripy dress - this was a sale rail winner a couple of months ago and I've been wearing it (and the matching t-shirt) almost non stop since!

What struck me the most was the the versatility of the collection - from pretty day dresses in floral cottons to elegant lace numbers and some real showstoppers with huge tulle skirts there were dresses for all occasions! The fabrics were beautiful - I particularly loved the cream lace mixed in with lovely soft neutral shades. The floral fabrics were also really fun and I love the signature ribbon bow around the waist!



We also couldn't help swooning over the fab flower crowns and Alice bands on display!



Would this comb with white flowers and green foliage be perfect for a wedding? It reminds me of a 1920's wax flower head dress.
 


Isn't Anna's red dress and necklace combo gorgeous? She's a very stylish lady.







I loved this full length lace number - especially the satin bow!




 


I think I've found my favourite! I'm a stripes girl fo sho.



This Liberty print skirt was gorgeous!



Just look at those fabrics!


The party was held at the wonderful Eat Me Drink Me Treat Boutique in Hammersmith - EMDM is a lovely, girly cafe selling cakes, cookies, tea and frozen yoghurt (as well as more lunchable things too). They also sell a sweet range of bits and pieces including jewelry and lovely little aprons! In the next room is a swish clothing boutique which is currently showcasing the full range of Blinking Lights dresses. Isn't it lovely and girly?

Thank you for having us Anna, what a wonderful evening!
