Hansel Opening Party 011009-10.jpg_effected

Jo had sent an invite to us through Facebook for Hansel’s opening party last night. We were excited to check out her standalone store and her new collection, Robot Girl.

We were greeted by a giant happy robot on our way in!

The store was decorated to match the prints on the collection. Jo painted these walls herself.

Dawn and I were ecstatic to see some tiny robot accessories, they were so cute. These are the earrings and there were necklaces and charm bracelets at really affordable prices.

The collection was built around bows and lightning bolts featuring knits and girly dresses accented with pleats, folds, ribbons and bows. I was particularly smitten with this short black skirt with a bow in the middle. I think it will suit Alix ( ala thecherryblossomgirl) very well.

Booze was sponsored by Absolut Vodka and Heineken. In the wise words of Jo herself she wanted us to “wreck this place” upon seeing that we had no drinks in our hands.
