Once we got into Paddington we took the underground to Oxford St to visit the Albam store just off Carnaby St, unfortunately not long after that we got caught in torrential rain and decided to take refuge in one of my favourite traditional pubs on Wardour St - The Ship were we had a much welcomed Pear Cider and Pint of Guinness. We then had a stroll around Soho and picked up some very yummy crepes. The rest of the afternoon was spent in Covent Garden and then at The House of Barnabas, the location of the launch.
The House of Barnabas was such a beautiful location, with high ceilings and all the luxury finishes you would expect with a brand like Guess. The canapes went down a treat, especially with John who tried them all...we loved the Mediterranean veg crostini and mini burgers and who would say no to a glass of champagne. The turn out was very good with some very stylish bloggers coming to view the new line of watches, jewellery and accessories. I loved the bold colours of the mini watches and the double straps as well as a tortoise shell watch that caught my eye. We also got to learn more about the Guess One to Watch campaign that will be starting on facebook on the 1st May, it's a global search for stylish bloggers and individuals around the world to become the official voice of the Guess Access blog. More info soon to follow...otherwise here are some photos from our fab day out.
