Alie Street - Press Event- Tell Me Your Favourite

Hi Everyone
I had a lovely day out in London this week. Luckily a day with hints of sun and warmer temperatures unlike the rest of the week!


Just a quick snapshot before I left of what I wore, this Navy and beige top which is fitted but has loads of stretch, so it's comfortable and beige trousers with navy sandals and my big white shopper to keep the essentials in. I'm off to view the new collection by Alie Street.  

You may remember me confessing my love for the Alie Street brand in my previous posts here and here These dresses are still available today, and if your looking for a sophisticated well-fitted dress for work or a special occasion then do take a look at the Alie Street Website.

The event was held at a beautiful location. The Chesterfield Hotel in Mayfair


Photo supplied via Michelin


How beautiful is this reception?!! I would have loved to have taken some snaps of the hotel, but it was quite busy, so I have grabbed this photo from the web.A perfect place for afternoon tea at a reasonable price of £38.50 it really was a gorgeous place. Take a look around at the website here

Entering the conservatory located in the hotel I was met by the Alie Street team who were lovely and so welcoming. A few of the new designs were on display, and I've taken shots of those. The rest is under wraps for now, but I'm sure I will get to share that with you later.


How beautiful is this trio? I was asked which was my favourite and I liked them all so much it's hard to decide! Which one would you choose? I'm tempted most by the one in the middle and on the Alie Street website you can see it worn by celebrities here but I would love to know your thoughts! 


Alie-street also provides maternity wear. Great for special occasions, so if there's a family wedding planned and you have a family member expecting, guide her to the website!



A chat and tea and cake after! I did feel spoilt!



I look forward to sharing a new Alie Street dress with you later, so don't forget to help me choose! Let me know in the comments box.

  5. Middle one. I was reading Susan of Over 50 Under 20 yesterday who commented that sleeved dresses are difficult to find. I reflected that I have just one summer dress with sleeves - and I have the arms for sleeves. Thanks, Laurie, you've found me yet another source for dresses. This could get expensive! And I - and hubby :-) - have oft admired Jasmine's dresses. It's very dangerous that I now know where she gets them from ...
