I got an invite to attend the GUESS LUXE launch via The Butterfly Project & I was really excited because it was my first event under them.

It was basically a showcase of the GUESS Luxe exclusive leather handbags. There was a colour theme to follow, which was white. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t have anything that was fully white (insert mental note to buy some plain coloured clothes), so I had to improvise with just a white shirt;

I’ve never really been much of a GUESS handbag sorta girl, but I was converted that night for sure. The GUESS Luxe Fall/Winter 2013 collection was so chic! The bags were minimal, but with an additional detail on each of it to give it an extra wow factor.

Look at all these pretty bags!;

But I saved the best for last;

Oh, and not forgetting the super funky zebra bracelet from GUESS as well. I just had to try it on! Love, love, love animal accessories!

& speaking of accessories, here are some of the accessories that were on display that caught my eye;

PhotoGrid_1382619206644After the little show, we were briefed about the collection, basically getting to know what the new collection was all about. They even conducted a contest where 3 lucky bloggers got to take home GUESS bags.

But no one went home empty handed as we were giving goodie bags at the end of the event;
