BFW

Hey lovelies

Its that time of the year again where Belfasts Style queen herself Cathy Martin organises the Autumn/Winer Season of Belfast Fashion Week.
A week jam packed of fashion, fun, everything in-between and all done with a glass of West Coast Cooler in hand!

                          

This year as sad as I was, I could only make it to the final evening due to other commitments. This night was full of the latest fashion from one the top local boutiques in Northern Ireland, Spoilt Belle Boutique. As well as a talk from the official BFW blogger, Love Lauren- who by the way is the cutest!

 


Again its venue that I love time and time again, as soon as you walk in the photographer is pulling you to the side for photos against the backdrop, someone is asking you where you got your outfit, there is west coast cooler being handed out like its going out of fashion- everything is going on and I love it! The pop up shops, the clothes, the cute fairy lights, the electric atmosphere everything about this little place I love, and the catwalk hasn't even begun!



 

One of the pop up shops that really got my attention was a new up and coming business in Belfast called iBagzy. Ok so loads of you including myself will have been obsessed at one time another in your lifetime with Sex and The City, and one thing that I always remember from it and have always thought was a brilliant idea was that in the likes of New York City you can rent a designer bag out for the weekend or event. Like how brilliant is that? Got an amazing outfit and just need a even more amazing handbag to match it, but your bank balance just doesn't match it? No problem, rent it out for the weekend! Amazing, why hasn't anyone thought of this before?!
They stock every brand you have ever thought of from Mulberry to Kate Spade to Vivienne Westwood even down to Chanel- yesss Chanel, the ultimate dream! We had the pleasure of looking through some of the stock, I think this was our personal favourite- Alexander McQueen if you dont mind! The website is coming soon, but in the mean time keep and eye on their Facebook page!



Before we headed in to get our seats, another lady had approached us about the stall she was on. It was for an app called Sortsy. Another really cool concept, want your nails done? Need a plumber asap, but don't know who to call? Type your location into this app and it will give you all the information you need- no more finding the perfect person for the job but they are based half way across the country- Perfect.


When the doors finally opened and we were allowed to take our seats (frow )
 before the show finally started I loved getting a look around the room and seeing everyones outfits, from other local bloggers to just fashionistas who enjoy the shows! Everyone was so well dressed and so on trend. Lights dimmed and out step two hot to trot girlies, Cathy and Rebecca. I dont think I've ever seen these two get it wrong, always on point. Cathy wore a stunning black suit with plunge neck line and pointed courts, hair tied away in a sleek pony tail to match the tailored look. The stunning Rebecca wore a baby blue crop top, showing of her well toned abs and making the rest of us super jealous and making me totally regret the bar of chocolate I had earlier in the day haha she paired it with the most beautiful pair of flared trousers, adding bit of Angelina into it with a long spilt up the side to show of her equally as toned pins!




The catwalk started showcasing all the newest pieces from SBB and oh my word they didn't disappoint, this shop is a little gem! For you lovely lot who have never heard of them you must check them out, they never seem to get it wrong. They are both in store and online and they have shops in both Coleraine and Magherfelt, stocking brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Guess. Here are some of the items that were on the runway. How classy and stunning is each piece? The green is my favourite!








The lovely Lauren was this years official blogger for BFW from Love Lauren blog. She came onto the catwalk to talk all things blogging, her blog and some tips for us lot. Her dress was also from SBB and suited her so well, loved the leather look on her- again so on trend.
Overall another great night had by all at the event, and like Cathy said we are all planning what we are wearing for the March event already!


In my previous posts I have mentioned some of the big trends this season, including the lingerie look. This is what I have went for here, layering it of course with the beautiful blouse that I'm still crushing over and faux suede ankle boots to give it an edger look. I really loved this outfit and it was super comfy to wear, when we headed out for drinks later I simply took the blouse off and added a tiny necklace to make it a little different. Oh and ps I got theee best blow dry from Erin McBride in Ballycastle before I headed up!
