So, this event wasn't exactly fashion related, but it consisted of my other great love: Music. I was invited to the launch of Chevrolet's new car, the Spark, which took place last Thursday (8th April). The event took place at the Vinyl Factory, below Phonica Recording Studios, in Soho, and was definitely a night to remember. Because of my older brother, I am a huge car fan and there was no way I was going to miss this. I decided to take my best friend as we always have amazing nights out whenever we go out.
This was the official launch of the car, but there will be gigs throughout the country and you can vote for where you want them to go next and there will be 'pop up' gigs every few weeks from April to June. Venues include a car park and an old cinema. If you're in England, I recommend you to check out what cities they're looking to go to next and vote for you're favourite.
Dj's on the night included Nick Grimshaw (who is actually really good looking in real life) and Jack Penate, who had some pretty cool dance moves. But the best part about the DJ booth was that it was actually a Chevrolet Spark sideways, with wheels as turntables.
The Mystery Jets were also performing. I've been a fan of them for quite some time, so was interested to see them live. They were actually really good and had a great atmosphere. My favourite song of theis is 'Half in love with Elizabeth', so I think you can imagine that I was singing at the top of my voice when they sang that.
WAH nails, who I've previously had my nails done by, had a nail bar, in the form of a nail-car, there as well. I was really looking forward to getting my nails done, as my hands were in a bit of a bad state that day. I spent earlier that day with my hand in a stuffing machine, and was stuffing envelopes and delivering leaflets, so I had lots of of paper cuts and bruises on my hands. Unfortunatly, the line to get nails done was pretty long the whole evening, so I wasn't able to get them done :(
Finally, there was also a chance to digitally graffiti a car. This was really cool. Basically, there was a digital screen which you could do graffiti on and it automatically showed up on a real car.
It was an absolutely amazing night, and I had so much fun. I am not kidding when I say that there were seas's of good looking guys everywhere and I managed to talk to quite a few of them (including a Gerard Butler lookalike). The very cool thing about the evening was I also got to meet some guy who works on the Breakfast Show of my favourite radio station. I listen to that show every morning no matter what, and knew exactly who he was after he introduced himself!
Some people I met during the night (yes I take pictures with strangers):
I didn't take any outfit shots, but I'm wearing the dress I'm wearing here and here.
