The other day I was lucky enough to be whisked away to the breathtaking venue at Heckfield Place in the british countryside of Hampshire, along with other girls from the U.K., France and Spain for the most magical day with Farfetch.
To those who frequently read my blog or follow me on Instagram, you’ll already know how much I love shopping and browsing on Farfetch for the latest trend pieces and also for daily inspiration! So when I was invited on this day trip, I couldn’t have been any more excited!
The event all began inside the gorgeous mansion on the top floor, overlooking the most serene grounds facing a lake. It was simply a sight! The whole floor was decorated in beautiful pieces, sunglasses from Farfetch (my favorite were the Guccis!), the highest of heels, sequin dresses and more, all for us to play dress up with and have fun!
We had a makeup & hair stand, a luxurious lounge to chill and chat, a master bedroom with the biggest closest space a girl can want, a sea of shoes and coffee & tea on hand. What more do you need?
The first activity Farfetch set up for us was to create our very own festive bouquet with the help of the FLOWERBX team. I have to say, after having done a few bouquet arranging events this season, I already felt like a pro! How pretty was the whole set up?
Next it was time for our shooting session, and time to get down to styling! With designer brands and a variety of beautiful occasion-wear & party pieces to try on, from Fendi to Magda Butrym, Manolo Blahnik and Chloe, we were certainly spoiled for choice! (And they also made it impossible for us to style a bad outfit!)
I went for this beautiful Magda Butrym blue silk floral dress with shoulder pads, I love the sophisticated and empowering vibe it has! Jorge Monedero was my photographer for this look (he shot for Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair and more), and we chose to shoot in the suite – full of clothes and shoes surrounding me!
Next up, it was time to explore the grounds and take a small trip in Landrover cars to the forest on the other side of the mansion. What a breathtaking sight it was, to watch the sunset in front of the lake whilst sipping our hot chocolate.
It was then time to head back to the warmth and comfort of Heckfield Place, to take a seat and learn the art behind monogramming with Will Bees Bespoke. We had the chance to monogram our own Farfetch customised luggage tags! How sweet!
To finish off a wonderful day, Farfetch & Santa have arrived, gifting us all with beautiful pieces from the site! I couldn’t have been any happier, it was truly the perfect day spent with the loveliest team and the sweetest blogging girls!
A huge thank you to Farfetch for having me at their holiday #FarfetchFind event!
