Last weekend, I was invited down to Rendevous Hotel, Scarborough beach to take a look at this Summer season hottest swim & resort fashion courtesy of Karrinyup Shopping Centre and Seafolly.
It was brilliantly arranged by the ladies at 3AM thoughts PR. I amongst other Perth bloggers were treated to delicious breakfast, and some bright and cheery cupcakes to match the theme of the show. Just looking at the bright colours lifted my spirits and made my mouth water! The event was fab, it really woke me up on a Saturday morning! Plus, it was nice to see some familiar faces that I had been stalking on Instagram, most who I only knew by alias (which is such an ‘internet/blogger’ thing).
When we stepped out onto the beach, there was a samba band playing and even an aerial campaign, which looked great with the clear blue sky as the back drop. The plane pulled along the hashtag #karrinyupswimresort15 and kind of explained what was going on to the rest of the beachgoers, who just rocked up for the surf and sand. I’m sure it was puzzling to them why there were heaps of cameras, a loud band and hot models walking about. However, the girls and guys who were modelling the swimwear were very professional, confident and was too busy having a fun time in the sun.
The models were holding up placards of the brands they were wearing, I wouldn’t have thought sports brands such as Running Bare and Lulu Lemon designed swimwear. Next time I will think about shopping my swimwear in sports shops, as I can remember from my past experience I would only buy speedo-type one piece racers from sports stores. These days, it seems atheletic brands are getting it right in the fashion stakes. They are beginning to catch-on that we all want to look good when we have to sweat it out or jump in the water…
I was glad I wore my sandals that day because there weren’t many warnings about a trek into the sand after the fashion parade at the hotel. I could see other bloggers struggling with their heels or wedges, but still looking ultra fashionable. I must have been the only crazy one wearing a black tank dress…thankfully the weather was a cool 23 degrees at 9:30am.
One of the best parts of the day was receiving a bag full of goodies from various Karrinyup shopping centre retailers, such as Live Clothing, Lush, Crabtree & Evelyn, T2 Tea and lots more! My kids even got to enjoy the blow up beach ball thanks to Rendezvous Hotel. I’m especially loving the huge beach bag from Sea Folly, purple is one of my favourite colours. Which may encourage me to venture out to the beach side more often before the weather turns cold.
Are you still enjoying the Summer days or are you wishing it was Autumn already?
