On the third weekend of advent I was lucky enough to be invited to the H.R. Owen Lamborghini Christmas party in the village of Pangbourne (about a 2 hour drive west of London).
The party was a great fun with a live band, selection of cocktails and an Italian themed buffet. The guest of honour was legendary Lamborghini test driver Valentino Balboni who spoke about his passion for the cars and his commitment to the brand, a commitment which was recognised by Lamborghini in the production of a very limited edition car that carries his name.
We stayed in the nearby village of Streatley in the Swan Hotel and before the event took a short walk over the river to the Miller of Mansfield for a dinner which (as you can see in the gallery) turned out to be a great find.
This year has been surprisingly warm recently so I could enjoy wearing a dress instead of the usual winter coat whilst walking around the beautiful hotel riverside garden!
I wore Manolo Blahnik shoes and my clutch was from T.K Maxx (where you can find amazing fashion pieces from Valentino Red, Calvin Klein, La Perla and Moschino to high street brands for very reasonable prices). My dresses for the weekend were from Sharon Style (a designer based in my hometown Ostrava where you can buy or rent pieces off the rail or take advantage of the bespoke tailoring service).
As a potentional Lamborghini customer I had the chance to get a bit of the experience of ownership (apart from being able to touch anything 😉 ).
