I was back in the States a couple months back when I noticed that a London-based luxury accessories brand, Charlotte Olympia, seemed to have popped up everywhere. Their shoes caught my eye because they exude an old-fashion glamour and have this cute little spider web logo on the underside of the sole.
And as fate would have it, I received this when I came back to Singapore:
An invitation to a Charlotte Olympia event by On Pedder. It was as if the brand wanted to lure me in further knowing that it had already caught my attention overseas. Haha!
So I headed down to this ‘Hollywood Soiree’ with a friend on the day.
The first thing I noticed was this huge ‘spider web’ with Charlotte Olympia shoes hanging off it at the store’s window display. I absolutely love how the brand based their embroidered spider web logo on the children’s book, Charlotte’s Web. So unique and whimsical.
As for the event itself, the turnout was crazy!
It was so crowded! But of course, who would have expected less from a brand worn by Hollywood style icons such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively, Olivia Palermo and Rachel Bilson among others?
As we walked around the store shopping, enjoying champagne and hors d’oeuvres, I saw Charlotte Olympia Dellal, the designer, looking gorgeous in a glamorous evening gown with silver glitter. Very Hollywood!
I also saw Charlotte Olympia shoes all over the floor. I am certain that almost everyone there was trying at least a pair on!
My friend and I wanted to try on a few pairs as well but they were out of our usual sizes. We still tried them on anyway, hoping that the closest sizes would somehow fit us (not that lucky though). The above pair of denim platform sandal is one of their most popular styles.
As I turned away disappointed, I spotted this amazing accessory:
The Pandora Plexiglas Clutch! This clear clutch has a spider clasp and comes with 3 interchangeable pouches. It was love at first sight and I knew then that I must bring one home with me. Good thing the store still had this in stock.
Before I leave (happily with my purchase), I had wanted to go up and talk to Charlotte Olympia Dellal but did not get a chance to, as she was preoccupied and I had to rush off for my dinner date. All in all, Charlotte Olympia is ‘TERRIFIC’, just like Charlotte made Wilbur out to be in the Charlotte’s Web. I will definitely return for more (shoes)!
P.S. My apologies for the blurry images, I think I was too distracted shopping to take good pictures!
