Something brightened up my deadline ridden week on May 17th; I was invited down to the Fashot studios by Olivia from fusefashion.com to be a part of their new video with my fellow bloggers Olwen from The Muse TV, Zoe from The London Lipgloss and Andria from Andria's Dose. It was in celebration of their nomination of the 'Best Online Retailer' at the Lorraine High Street Fashion Awards and it was very exciting indeedeo! I'm all for a good celebratory song and dance so I couldn't resist (I wish I could say that was metaphorical but no... I really did sing and dance during the shoot)
Fuse Fashion gave us a clothing rail full of their latest offerings from their Summer collection to choose from and we were honestly spoilt for choice. Alice & You, Darling, Izabel London, Motel and Petals were just some of the many brands featured and well, any excuse for me to have a bit of a rummage and draw up a mental wish list, ey?
We met the producer Julian and the camera crew then got down to the video presenting showcasing our favourite pieces from the collection... and one in particular to 'strut' down the catwalk. Yep, you heard me correctly. I am not a 'strutter'. In fact, we resorted to playing Beyonce's 'Run The World' to try and give me some 'sass'. I just wanted to grin, d'oh.

Now, you know me... I can't resist me a good monochrome piece so I was immediately drawn to this Alice & You number! It was sheer, had the on trend paisley print and a skater skirt to boot! It was 'right up my street' as some would say!
I'd like to thank Olivia for inviting me (I had a really lovely day and it was a great experience), Julian for being a goooooody ol' producer and the camera crew/staff for being so welcoming and patient! :)
