Thursday night, I attended the Ax Paris #AXParty hosted by the blogger network e-tail webstores. I went along to the one in April which was amazing but this topped that by far! It was a limited guest list so I feel so lucky to have been invited!
I finally met the babes Islay and Sam at Tower Hill Station and then we walked to the venue which was Proud Cabaret; luckily only a five minute walk. We bumped into Lauren and had a little catch up whilst meeting Rhea and finally after years of reading her blog; Kayla! Upon entering the venue we was told to take the staircase going down until we reached the seductive, smokey and dark room where it all went on. The first thing we all saw was little waitresses walking around in french knickers and stockings. Quite the shocker! As soon as we all entered we was given a cocktail which was lovely and fruity! And then me Lauren & Islay got our photo taken :)
The atmosphere was so surreal. We knew we was being treated to a Burlesque show at some point so the interior was 1920-1930's inspired with a little bit of the 40's thrown in too. Long purple draped curtains, gold fairy tale like mirrors and sultry lamps hung everywhere really added to the excitement of it all.
We got to see the collection of dresses by AX Paris which are for their A/W collection. Most are on the website! I actually wore the snake print smock dress* pictured above which a girl from the team at AX Paris noticed! I noticed a lot of the dresses were lace and some were super sparkly; perfect for the festive period upon us! We then got to see the new TV advert which is yet to be aired so keep an eye out for it! The lovely Jade Thompson who won Britain's Next Top Model is the girl who models everything. She was there and gave us a little talk and was even about for a chat and photos.
We was then treated to the burlesque show we had all been waiting for! I didn't get many pictures due to the lighting but it was all very sexy. Nipple tassels and bootaaaaaay shaking on a mid week night was certainly something!
We OBVIOUSLY took full advantage of the photobooth as did everyone. So funny! There was a pic and mix station aswell which offered milk bottles and chocolate mice - my absolute favourites! As the event whirled to an end, we all received a goodie bag full of treats from the likes of: Dr Organic, Barry M, Collection and Dr Lipp.
It was a fantastic night all in all and I'm now going to pop open my zeo drink. Huge thanks to AX Paris for a great night and for e-tail for inviting me. I can't wait for the next one!
