Clothes show live

Since starting my blog my love for British fashion has increased hugely. Before hand I had no style direction, I was living happily in my comfort zone of Primark leggings and didn’t really shop anywhere else. I had no clue who Jeffrey Campbell was and I thought disco pants were what I wore at the age of 5 to my dance class! I am still no Alexa chug but at least now I know what I like (and don’t) and I can appreciate amazing style and clothes when I see them.

I had attended the clothes show a few times in the past but always found it to be a bit of a cattle market. This year was a completely different story and I even went armed with VIP tickets that I had won through a twitter comp the week before. The shops weren’t really that amazing, all a bit markety, which is fine however the prices didn’t reflect that. I did manage to snap up a few bargains at the end of the day though as the prices had dropped considerably….Cheeky!!!

What I really loved was the style oozing from all four walls of the NEC, whether it be on the people attending the event or on the catwalk everywhere I looked I was being hit in the face with amazing fashion. My favourite bit had to be the young designers catwalk, there was one girl who’s collection was bloomin amazing, I would have worn it all. I wish I could design clothes and them paraded round on a catwalk but those of you who know me…I can’t draw for ****! Pipe dream.

Anyway I thought I would share with you some of my pictures, I did take around 27 hundred thousand but I didn’t want to bore you to tears. Here’s some of my fav.

Jacket- Pull and bear
Tee- New Look
Scarf and Necklace- Primark
Jeans- Toppers
Bag- gift

The gumball style thing in the background was full of complimentary nail varnish....how amazing!!!!!
