KITTY.

Sometimes an item of clothing will come into my life and I don't understand how I lived without it- this Voodoo Vixen Kitty dress is such an item. 

This is the dress I picked for London Edge with Voodoo Vixen and I'm so glad I did- I had been lusting after it for months.

Petticoat: Hell Bunny (similar here and here)
Shoes: Topshop
Necklace: Pip Jolley

As soon as it went on my body it was love- I'm so glad I finally own a Voodoo Vixen dress after loving their cardigans for so long. I only with my student budget stretched for a few more.

It's so awesome- I've been in a pink theme lately and the retro futuristic swirls are awesome. The fit is pretty perfect too a little baggy around the waist but accurate to the size guide- and with the belt fits great.

What surprised me was the quality if the material- I own a few repro clothes and this dress far outclassed it. The material is so think and stitched really well (I've noticed another brands dress is fraying quickly) and the print isn't going anywhere even after a hot wash (like other brands prints). I'm not alone, at London Edge it's all we talked about for over an hour.

I've worn it a handful of tines already and I know it's going to become my go to dress. Dressed down or dressed up paired with victory rolls and pin roll jewellery.

LONDON EDGE WITH VOODOO VIXEN.

So I think I have just about recovered from my busy weekend, hectic uni day and work to finally blog again. I really can't complain as the weekend was awesome- after the Harry potter tour on Saturday on Sunday I was invited to attend London Edge by Voodoo Vixen. 

My undying love for Voodoo Vixen is pretty evident so me, April and Tammy arrived as early as we possibly could to the Olympia and where the first there. Nick and the rest of the Voodoo Vixen team where super welcoming and we quickly got changed (dear God my Kitty dress is amazing-a glowing review coming soon) and April and Tammy sat down for a makeover. 



I'm a bit iffy about my hair and with sensitive skin I don't do makeovers but I wish I had taken up the offer- the hair created was stunning! I was a mix of jealous and inspired. I loved seeing how everyone styled their look- everyone was so different considering at least 4 other people (including Tammy) had the same dress on as me- it might have been pairing it with my (obviously) Voodoo Vixen cardigan.

London Edge had organised a talk from the Queen of Wedding Bloggers Kat from Rock n Roll Bride, which was a nice informal chat about her life as blogger, headmistress, magazine writer and she came off as such a sweetheart (which is exactly how I imagined her).


The majority of our day was spent looking around at what all the traders had to offer to wholesalers- a little bit out of my student budget but seeing what's coming just ended up as a photographic wish list. 

Seeing the new shades from Crazy Color nearly gave me Tammy and April heart attacks as they where so beautiful! 



Banned is a brand I've been aware of for a while but never really caught my eye- seeing them at London Edge I couldn't remember why. Not only have they created my all time most lusted after prints (the pink pina collars one) but have you ever seen such cute bags?



Voodoo Vixen was obviously my favourite stall to visit, seeing this awesome Hawaiian print before it hit the site was a dream come true, plus I got to check out my favourite prints in person (that are soon to be available in Plus size) and for me April and Tammy Ronald swoon over the Katnis dress (green cats FTW).

In terms of quality (and this is just my opinion) Voodoo Vixen seem to be offering the most for price, the thickness and texture of materials used are amazing. 



I've been following Le Keux Cosmetics on Instagram for a while, and I knew they where at Edge so I needed to check out the vintage inspired makeup first hand. I cannot wait fir payday as I think I've found my new eye liner :) 



Iron fist are the best shoes around and their spring 2015 collection looks like it won't disappoint...



... and Manic Panic looked fantastic (and the girls where beyond kind and chatty).



Sourpuss really impressed my from not only their range of products (from dresses, to home wear) but their range of prints. I feel like after visiting then I want to become a kitchen goddess just so I can justify an apron...


... or a gold glitter clutch bag.


Sensationelle is a brand I adored! ...


... as did Gobbolino- both one women entrepreneurs.


The only downside to the whole day was it was so much fun we were a little to exhausted to stay for the entire after party :(
