Last Thursday saw another fabulous Brum Bloggers event take place at Oasis, Bullring. This Summer spectacular was to celebrate the launch of stunning new collection, a collaboration between the Natural History Museum and the brand, a collaboration that combined the wild and the wonderful to create a secret garden collection of flora and fauna, with a few cute bugs thrown in for good measure.
The event was a real girls night in. Bill’s restaurant had supplied delicious food treats, and there was Prosecco and Pimms Cup for a taste of Summer. Smashbox were on hand to create the perfect lip, and there were opportunities to try on the collection, and to style pieces in order to try and win them. Dressing up, makeovers and Pimms – what more could you ask for.
The Natural History collection is just beautiful, combining beautiful watercolour prints with luxe fabrics and designs. My favourite pieces were the spaghetti strap shift style dress with the floral print, which, unfortunately, was not available in my size, and the stunning pencil skirt which I am wearing in the image below, which has a lovely fantail detail on the back.
This mint green chiffon dress is also a winner, especially if you have a Summer wedding coming up. The details, from the cape effect to the pleated skirt, make it one of the prettiest dresses around.
Off course, as beautiful as the Natural History Collection is, being allowed to roam freely around Oasis when all the other customers have gone home also meant a chance to look at all the other Summer collections, and to take that trying on session just a little bit further.
This Summer Oasis is knocking it out of the park with cool cotton pieces that are perfect for those Summer holidays, and pretty, timeless dresses that you will able to wear this Summer and next. I fell in love with the cotton strapless crop playsuit and a striped skirt, both of which came home with me, and I may yet go back for the stripy dress with the handkerchief style hemline.
With huge thanks to Oasis Birmingham and the Brum Bloggers for the invite and a fab night.
