Last week we were delighted to be invited along to the Clarks High Heel Society event, a special one-off shindig that involved 50 lucky competition having shoe-related fun in the penthouse of The Metropolitan Hotel in Mayfair. With panoramic views of London (including a very twinkly lit up Harrods in the distance), lovely champagne and the Clarks Spring/Summer 2012 collection on display, we knew we were in for a lovely evening. Guests mingled and enjoyed delicious canapes (who doesn't love a bite-sized meal?) and champagne while trying on the different shoe styles on offer.
In between all the shoe-related bonding, guests were treated to talks by fashion bloggers Alyson of That's Not My Age and Emily from Fashion Foie Gras, plus a little chat from handbag.com's own Georgina Langford. Each blogger kept us entertained with different shoe related topics; we got the That's Not My Age view on British Style Icons (including why Tilda Swinton is just incredible) while Emily got a lot of giggles while giving Clarks her tried and tested seal of approval. While we weren't trying on shoes, there were also beauty treatments to be enjoyed plus one particular highlight: a corner of the room dedicated to pic 'n mix. Clarks know the way to our hearts, that's for sure - shoes and sweets are a surefire win.
At the end of the evening everyone left with a goody bag, having ordered their own pair of new season Clarks shoes. It's safe to say there were 50 very happy ladies in London that night!
Thanks to Clarks for a wonderful night.
