The 2012 Vogue Fashion's Night Out was the biggest and busiest yet, with a pedestrianised Bond Street filled with hundreds of tipsy shoppers until late.

My night started at Poste Mistress for a Kat Maconie event.  The British shoe designer presented her new AW12 collection of seriously covetable footwear over G'vine gin cocktails and cupcakes.  I need these metallic pink beasts.

I then swung by Paul Smith in Covent Garden to pick up a birthday present for my boyfriend before heading over the road to the Aubin & Wills store to listen to up-and-coming singer Purple Ferdinand's acoustic set.

I checked out the new AW12 collection and chose the gorgeous Langleydale Dress which I wore at the 5 inch and up Nelly launch event and is in the running for my most worn dress of the past month.  Grey is one of my favourite colours, the relaxed shift shape is so basic and casual it goes with everything and I love dressing it up with over-the-knee black boots with loads of silver jewellery.  Big thanks A&W!

Next was more live music as I watched Delilah sing in the Topshop window on Oxford Street and picked up some basic tees in River Island.

I then visited Butler & Wilson on South Molton Street and added one of these skull necklaces to my wishlist - I love impactful jewellery and good lord, this it the epitome of that - before calling it a night for the sake of my bank account.  All those discounts with all that champagne is a heady, dangerous mix...
