Cardiff Fashion Weekend & Blogger Meet

Sunday, 28 October 2012

This was my outfit to Cardiff Fashion Weekend. The tropical print top is from Primark as are the leggings and bag, the blazer is from Topshop many moons ago and the shoes are from New Look but customised by myself. I wore some Eyelure falsh lashes to the event with MUA lipstick in shade 11 and NARS lipgloss in Penny Arcade. The nails are Topshop High Voltage with a sprinkle of gold glitter (review coming soon).

A few of us met up at 4pm to get to know each other a little better over a delicious Starbucks. You can't beat a pumpkin spice latte on a cold autumn day.

Delicious Prosecco and food at Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant in The Hayes, Cardiff.

As you can see, it was a brilliant day from the time I arrived and met Michaela for browsing around the Vivienne Westwood store to the coffee meet, the actual party and the fashion show. The fashion show was brilliant. It was my first time seeing a live fashion show and while my phone didn't pick up brilliant shots from the show, Georgina made a video of the shows that I'll embed below. It was lovely to meet some of the bloggers that I've read and followed for a while as well as bloggers I had already met. You should definitely go check out their websites as they're not only all incredibly beautiful but also extremely lovely women. I had a fantastic time and I can't wait until the next time we all meet up.

If you want high quality pictures Gemma has a great post and Laura has fabulous photos (but a not-so fabulous one of me).
