Before I immerse you in oodles of Cuplé goodness, I thought I should briefly introduce the brand first - for those who haven't yet heard of Cuplé, it's a thriving Spanish label commenced in 1987 in the beautiful Alicante, Spain. It specializes in leather goods such as shoes, bags and purses and also manufactures clothing and fashion accessories. It has 86 stores in Spain and only 8 international branches - and luckily for us here in Qatar, Cuplé's exquisite, unique pieces are now within our reach.
And I'm just so lucky to have the chance to closely explore their absolutely enticing collection and even luckier to meet one of their brilliant designers face-to-face - and 10x luckier to be part of this wonderful event!

|Here's Elsa Dionisio (on the right), Cuplé Qatar's brand manager and the brilliant organizer of the event, introducing one of Cuplé's very own designers, Teresa Sanchez (left), who flew all the way from Barcelona, Spain to join us and give us a good overview of what Cuplé is all about and its new collection. These two were such darlings. And they both look stunning, yes? ;)|

|Image Consultant, Expert Stylist and founder of Glam Your Image, Elisabete Reis gave us a little talk about fashion - how to dress right for your body shape and flattering your assets with the right clothing - with demonstration using Cuplé fab pieces, of course. She was amazing. She's definitely one of the poshest (and sweetest) people I've ever met.|

And yes, I was the tiniest of the group. I probably should wear bigger heels next time. LOL. And I also probably should learn how to smile for photos properly.

|My head-to-toe Cuplé look|
Here's the Cuplé look I styled. Can you see the Victoria Beckham inspiration right there? ;) I swear, that dress I wore was dreamy - the fit was so beautiful and it was insanely comfortable. So were the shoes, I totes fell in love with those shoes. The little beige bag and the dramatic bib necklace were the perfect finishing touch.
And guess what...
I won. I FREAKING WON THE COMPETITION!!! I can't intensify it enough to give justice to my elation. I promise to post photos of the prize soon when I get spare time in my hands. Anyhow, a big wet sloppy thank you to all of you who supported me and voted for my photo entry. Truly, I'm blessed with supporters and readers like you all. ♥
