Tabio Bloggers Event



So, remember a while ago I mentioned that I had been invited to another Bloggers event? Well this time  it was for Tabio, who some of you will know as the place to go for socks and tights. They don't just sell your run-of-the-mill standard hosiery though- they've taken this product group and made it their own. With cool cuffs for your ankles, accessories for your feet and top quality fabrics, Tabio have stamped their creativity all over the hosiery market. I was thrilled to be invited to their first Bloggers event, (held at their flagship store on Kensington High Street), as I've never been to any of the stores before and was excited to see these products in real life! 

I met up with the lovely Jazmine from 'Jazzabelle's Diary' and Daniela from 'Couture and Crumpets' at Waterloo station before heading off to the event. The store itself was very stylish and filled to the brim with a vast array of unique products! Most of the time was spent chatting to fellow bloggers, the Tabio staff and finding out more about the Spring/Summer range. The staff let us choose a piece of Tabio to take home, so after much deliberation I came away with a pair of pretty spotted tights which I'm itching to wear!

At the event I met Amy from 'Vintage Reflection', Kitty from 'Kitty Hates Everything', Harriet from 'Where is Harriet' and Maria from 'Frills and Spills' who were all incredibly friendly. It was just so nice to meet fellow bloggers in real life and discover some great new blogs along the way! Everyone was so kind and welcoming and I would like to thank Tabio once again for inviting me, my first official Bloggers Event was fantastic.

Never heard of the store before, but it looks awesome. Exactly the kind of place i'd spend hours in ooing and ahhing over mini toesocks! Cute!

P.S. Your red skirt is to die for.Good choice.

Thanks for coming to say hi on my blog :)
Love your red skirt!
It looks like a lovely store, and it's nice that they let you pick something. I wish there were more events in Cardiff. We Love Colors sell lovely tights but I think shipping costs a fortune to the UK. It's so hard to get socks and tights that fit just right because I have szie 8 feet.

Your skirt is beautiful, I love the colour!

I didn't get my arse in gear about this event - really should have done, it sounds like much fun was had! With the tiny cute toe socks :). Can't ever see myself wearing something like that, but it wouldn't stop me cooing over them! xx
