So last week I was lucky enough to get an invite to the St Davids Shopping Centre Spring/Summer 2015 bloggers event. It was at the lovely Wahaca, which weirdly as a self-proclaimed Mexican food addict I had never been to before! But I mainly put that down to the popularity of it, it is always pretty much impossible to get a table there so it was nice to finally give it a go - shows they're doing something right though I guess. It was nice to catch up with other bloggers over heck loads of champagne to see what they have ready for Spring/Summer 2015, and it was nice to have a chit chat with the St Davids stylists too. But I'll tell you what was super nice, getting an insight to what the queen of everything, Vivienne Westwood, has waiting for us.

I've always been a fan of Westwood for as long as I can remember. If you know me well in the slightest then you probably know that culture is one of my biggest fascinations, probably stems down to the degree that I am doing. Every opportunity I've had to explore this magnificent lady I have pretty much jumped on it, I feel bad for those who have had to mark my essays - "Vivienne Westwood this, Vivienne Westwood that"! She is pretty much a British cultural fashion icon who pushes boundaries and makes very bold political and cultural statements with her pieces. What a sassy gal, ey?

What I found interesting when talking to the guys from Vivienne Westwood is how easily we (especially students) get scared of price tags that come along with names like hers. When putting it into perspective though, I realised that spending £40 on a pair of jeans from Topshop which is absolute bunk quality is quite ridiculous. I could put in the extra £50 and ensure fabulous quality, oh and a designer label at the same time. All I can say is, never let the name put you off! Loads of her pieces are versatile too, she designs her stuff so garms can be warn in different ways but you can still make a statement at the same time. Oh and if you're a full on accessory junkie like me, her stuff is more than worth checking out! I have two sets of her earrings and a necklace - they are more than worth the money because I pretty much live in them! Next on the list, I'll defo be investing in one of her gems of a bag.

Hope you enjoy the snaps!
