On Saturday, I had the honour of attending the Fashion Live! event at my local shopping centre as a blogger. This was my first event as a blogger, and I have to say: what an experience! At the event there was both fashion masterclasses and beauty demonstrations. I was only able to attend of a short time, due to a prior engagement, but I was so sad to leave.
The fashion masterclass I was present for featured clothing from Primark and New Look; both my shops of choice. The lovely presenter displayed several different ss16 fashion trends from across these two shops. The main features were: boho, nautical, monochrome and 'pink soda'.
During the fashion masterclasses, the presenter spoke about having a capsule wardrobe; key pieces that was used to create different outfits. One of my favourites was this pink waterfall blazer, which can be used to create there different looks. I alway want to just throw all my clothes away any start a capsule wardrobe, downsize the amount of clothes I own, but I never do.
Chunky heeled sandals are very much in this year! This is great because me + heels = disaster. The 'girl-friend' jean is also a staple piece of this seasons wardrobe, which I was very excited about. I'm never very 'on-trend' and to find out a pair of jeans I bought two weeks ago are considered to be very in right now, makes me very excited!
While I was there, I also experienced a Urban Decay demonstration. The artist from the Debenhams counter demonstrated a very sun kissed, glow look using the new summer collection that has just hit stores! Using the Beached Bronzer to give a light contour, and the Afterglow Highlighter to create a subtle glow to the skin, the artist created one of the prominent looks I have been seeing all over Instagram. I was practically bouncing in my seat at the end because the demonstration wasn't scheduled until 1.30pm, which meant I would missed it. The artist also converted the audience over to the worship of the All-Nighter Setting Spray. After applying the Naked Flushed to her wrists, she sprayed one with the setting spray and, at the end of the demonstration, wiped them away. The Naked Flushed with the All-Nighter Setting Spray never budged an inch!
Some of my favourite shoes from Office, and accessories from Ness! I love that the bags and purses from Ness are tartan. They're always such good quality too!
The Fashion Live Overgate team were very kind as to create blogger gift back for those who attended, and I couldn't be more thankful. Everything in my bag will go to very good use, especially the notebook and sticky notes. I am the type of blogger that prefers to write notes constantly, so they will be very helpful.
With going to Florida later in the year, I will need to start picking up little summery bit of clothing, and this event definitely has me prepared!
