Bristol Fashion Week


I was lucky enough to be invited to Bristol Fashion week on Friday, it really was a day filled of fashion and fun. I was a little apprehensive at first, the thought of going to Bristol without knowing anyone freaked me out ever so slightly but after making last minute plans with Coral from Corals Closet I started to relax and the excitement kicked in. Now, as you will see in the photos me and Coral opted for ever so similar outfits, I assure you this was not planned...we rocked it all the same, it was almost as if we were in our own little uniform...we even had matching shoes, good old Primarni!

After finding our way and having a little look around we were pretty excited by the pampering zone and headed over to find out more, we ended up at bumble and bumble's table, where some super lovely ladies re vamped our hair...this really was a god send as the rain outside had flattened all attempts of adding volume to my lifeless locks. They used some amazing products, my favourite being the surf spray that they added on after putting some loose curls through my hair, and then sent us off with some samples that I can't wait to try.




After getting pampered we were given bundles of freebies from boots for their give it a go Friday campaign, I couldn't of been more impressed with all the samples that were given, my favourite being a generous sized bottle of Aussie shampoo and conditioner, for a skint student like me this was heaven. By the time we'd finished nosing around (and eating a cheeky McDonalds...naughty bloggers), it was time to head to the catwalk. We were greeted with mini cupcakes and glasses of bubbly to start off the show.


Mark Heyes and Andrew Barton presented the show with their witty banter introducing all the trends that were to be seen on the catwalk. Brands on the catwalk included River Island, Marks and Spencers, Timberland, John Lewis and many more all showcasing their take on this seasons top trends. My favourite being the amazing monochrome looks...it really did just encourage my love for everything black and white. I also really enjoyed all the beautiful floral prints, it almost made me forget that it was pouring down with rain outside. All in all the show was amazing, a great way of showing how you can be on trend whilst on a realistic high street budget.



After the show finished I met up with some other lovely bloggers, the beautiful Jess from Copper Garden and Tash from itssimplybeauty. The four of us girls giggled away whilst making the most of what Bristol Fashion Week had to offer, it felt like I'd known these girls for years..I couldn't of asked for better company, if you're reading this thank you girlies. Before I knew it we were doing what us bloggers do best, shopping! I was telling myself all day that I would not buy anything, but shopping with these girls led to some gentle persuasion and I ended up treating myself to a gorgeous orange midi skirt, that will no doubt be popping up on the blog very soon.





The amazing trends, good company and lovely goodies were just what I needed after a week of uni work and rubbish weather. Its safe to say the catwalk show has doubled my wishlist and made me even more excited for the Summer, the high street really have done a perfect job for this years S/S trends and I can't wait to get my hands on some of it.
