Sunday was a flurry of beautiful cupcakes, magical cocktails and wonderful fashion at the Wish Magazine launch.
What I wore:
What does a girl wear to a fashionable magazine launch, attended by other bloggers? I thought pastels were a good move, as spring is supposed to be here.
Top: Clothing at Tesco £16
Skirt: New Look £19
Ring (£10) and bunny necklace (£12): Wonsuponatime (launching soon)
If you’re a fan of Carrie’s blog WishWishWish, then you’re going to adore her and Lucy’s (from the wonderful blog Shiny Thoughts) magazine Wish. The launch party was a collection of very pretty girls, celebrating amidst knitting sessions, lovely Wish gin cocktails, delicious cakes, nostalgic jazz and perfumery from Penhaligon’s. One of my highlights was meeting the lovely Briony from A Girl A Style, which put a smile on my face – but I think I might have scared her with my enthusiasm.
It was such a pretty tea party, and so very thought out and I imagine the creative aesthetic comes from a very set perfection and high standards that come from Lucy and Carrie. They are girls that know what has worked for them thus far on their very successful blogs, and they certainly know their reader.
The magazine is adorned with gorgeous illustrations, beautifully written features and everything you need for yours to feed happilly for an hour or two. It’s interesting to see two bloggers who are famous for their take on their own lives, with their photography and narration, turn the camera on other people. And the result is just what I hoped it would be. I can’t wait to have the first edition in my hands. You can order the magazine from May 21st from Carrie’s blog.
