Bristol Fashion Week AW14 Show.


Last week I had a pleasure of attending Bristol Fashion Week's Live Blogging show - an opportunity for local bloggers to live tweet and Instagram the catwalk using the hashtag #BFWAW14. The show was a vibrant affair showcasing the new season collections from dozens of retailers at the Mall Cribbs Causeway, presented with creative flair and a whole lot of life. My favourite scenes featured models in quintessentially British garb, clutching takeaway coffee cups against a lively London backdrop, and a vividly autumnal scene, with models in decadent layers with autumn leaves in their tousled hair. Singers and dancers also brought the catwalk to life.

More than anything else, I love these events for the opportunity to mingle with other local bloggers, journalists, businesses, and other like minded people. Last week I attended Blog Club for the first time, which was such a positive experience, especially since my anxiety has held me back from attending in the past. Putting myself out there and becoming more familiar with local names in the community is exactly what I need right now, and it's been the perfect way to kick off my final year of studying in Bath!

Bristol Fashion Week - What I Wore.

SKIRT FROM TOPSHOP | COAT FROM TOPSHOP | TOP FROM ASOS | BAG C/O LYDC
HEELS C/O MARKS & SPENCER | NECKLACE FROM RIVER ISLAND

Yesterday I headed over to Bristol Fashion Week with Emily from Mermaid Gossip, so I thought I'd give you all a peek at what I wore! Granted, Bristol Fashion Week is far more relaxed than London Fashion Week, but I still used it as an excuse to dress up a bit. I picked this skirt up in the Topshop sales for £20 over summer, and I'm so pleased with it. I'll wear it casually over long sleeved white tee shirts, but it also dresses up beautifully. In this instance I wore it with a white Bardot style crop top, my trusty pink coat, and classic silver heels.

Emily and I had a fab afternoon grabbing some lunch, doing a bit of browsing around the Mall, and catching up with other local bloggers. The show itself was incredibly fun - I'll be sharing a few photos from it early next week! One of my aims at the moment is to throw myself into local blogging opportunities and really connect with other Bath/Bristol bloggers, so Bristol Fashion Week was a great way to kick that off!
