On Thursday the 18th November these 3 words will be put together to bring a special treat to Brisbane Fashionistas when Grazia Magazine invades James Street for a shopping experience unlike any other. Get ready for Grazia Up Late!!
First stop...Co-host FrockShop. Not only will you have the chance to win a copy of the Olsen twins book Influence, but you will be rubbing shoulders with Camilla & Marc's Camilla Freeman-Topper (OMFG) whilst sipping bubbly and getting items for 25% off in-store. The amazing fashion illustrator Kelly Smith from Birdy & Me will be designing a limited-edition tote for FrockShop as a gift with purchase, though if you are a huge fan like myself, you might want to buy a signed Bunny Girl illustration at the event.
Outside of FrockShop (I understand that on the night you might not be convinced that a world exists beyond its doors) you can expect to meet the girls from Sass & Bide, Kirrily Johnston and Collette Dinnigan, as well as more discounts and entertainment throughout the James St precinct (including a manicure to help handle that credit card).
Can't make it? Well the lovely team at FrockShop are giving Vogue Contradiction readers 10% off ANY purchases from frockshop.com before the 18th November by using the code 'CONTRADICTION'....yeeeaaahhh FrockShop!
The festivities start at the flagship store at 5pm and I would dare say be early...I am already forming my wish list, I dare you to beat me there...I DARE YOU!
