Hi there you beautiful bunch, how’s it going? Some of you probably know from my Insta stories that just over a week ago I moved this hefty butt of mine all the way to Chelmsford where V Fest took place and today I am oh-so excited to tell you all about it.
Going to music festivals has been one of my favourite ways to celebrate summer since a very young age when, not old enough to go alone, I had to have dad with me. I mean… music has just always been a super important part of my life and what’s a better place to hear all those amazing tunes than a festival? There’s just something so incredibly liberating in dancing in the sunshine (or rain if you live in the UK) and singing along while watching your favourite band play, these are those precious little moments you look forward to for the entire year. Well, at least I do.
Needless to say, when Debenhams kindly invited me to V Fest I was on cloud nine. I mean, how cool is that?! Collaborating with the brand which stands for over 200 years of British fashion history itself is a great privilege (and I am oh-so thankful for the opportunity!), let alone going to the festival with them! I was one hell of a lucky girl indeed!
The fun part started even before the festival as I was allowed to pick up any dress from this huuuuge causal range to make the super special occasion even more special. Even though I was invited to represent the brand, I wanted to make sure that my outfit reflected my style and personality (as always) and scrolling through dozens of pages I was getting more and more nervous- all the dresses were beautiful but they just didn’t feel like me? And then I spotted this beauty and… oh boy, it made me believe in love at first sight! It’s just flipping gooooorgeous, romantic yet edgy and very very feminine (what else could you expect from Warehouse?), super flattering, with that tomboyish Alexa Chung vibe… you know what I mean?? It’s also super versatile and oh my goodness, it fits like a dream! Seriously, I can’t remember being so in love with a dress. And the price tag doesn’t look bad either so if you like it go and grab one yourself before they are gone!
Having matched the dream dress with my old biker boots (comfiest ever!), a little chain bag and that not-so-little sunflower crown (which took me bloody a-ges to make!) I was ready to rock and roll!
The festival itself was oh so amazing! Me and the other girls were invited to this very very beautiful VIP area which was perhaps the dreamiest corner of the entire festival. All in white, pink, gold and silver it just couldn’t get more instagrammable, could it! We were obsessed! Even myself, who absolutely hates being photographed, happily agreed for the entire session on those pink sofas! I mean, how could I resist?!
As a part of the upgrade we could also enjoy complimentary food and drinks delivered to our tables- yes, someone was being spoiled AF, no complaints though!
Soon after arriving to the festival, we met the lovely Ellen from Debenhams who took care of every tiny detail to make all of us feel welcome. She was just super duper sweet, smiling non-stop, encouraging everyone to have a good time. And we certainly did!
Of course, the biggest highlight of the festival was music and the lineup for Saturday looked rather impressive indeed! Among the favourites of the day there were such artists as Madness, Sean Paul, Anne Marie, Rudimental or Pink- not too shabby, huh?I mean, how could we possibly not have a bloody great time?!
I came back home absolutely knackered, smiling like an idiot at drunk strangers on the Saturday night train. I might have been tired but I was flipping ecstatic too- thank you, Debenhams for this fabulous adventure!
