So it’s a little behind schedule, because I’ve been a busy little bee, but here’s a little round up of the amazing Subject60 party I went to last week. The event was organised by Volvo to launch their new S60 car and was held in the Old Sorting Offices on New Oxford Circus. To say it was one of the best parties I’ve been to for a while is a bit of an understatement – I had such a great time I didn’t want to leave. In fact, we were asked to.

Karaoke in a car? Check. Endless mysterious cocktails? Check. Lykke Li playing live? Check. The Face Hunter snapping away? Check. Bloc Party and Queens of Noize on the decks playing insanely good music? Check. Dancing the night away? DOUBLE CHECK!

I went with Jamie Ball, my good friend who illustrated this post a while back, my friend Siska and Lira Leirner, who won the competition for the tickets. Lira, a fellow blogger and dress designer (more on that very soon) and I bonded over cocktails, karaoke and gossiping about the many stylish people there and became instant friends.

My mom always told me not to get in a car with strangers, but guess what – she was wrong. We got into the backseat of a car and ended up meeting fellow bloggers who were in the driving seat. We had a great chat and a few cocktails in the car. It was so much fun, I’ve decided that I’ll be conducting all my business meetings in a car sipping cocktails from now on. Yup, I need to get me a car, stat.

But, rather than bore you with the details, here’s a few images which pretty much sum it up:

At last an excuse to break out my beloved Erdem dress… Worn with Topshop Addison wedges and American Apparel sheer shirt. Unfortunately this grubby iPhone pic is all I have!

Lykke Li… mindblowing, and her frayed jacket ruled. Fact.

Car Karaoke… Caraoke? Whatever, surely it has to be an option on every car from now on?

Meeting @alisonduker in a car. Cocktails at the wheel, that’s how we roll.

    What a brilliant post, I actually laughed out loud. Your writing rocks! And slowly, slowly, I’m catching up on the names of everyone. I’ll probably forget as soon as I turn my head, but still! Who is this Ashley and why didn’t I see her? HOT!

    Much love xx
