After Dark - Fashion Event of THE Year!

So! As I mentioned in last weeks post - I was invited to the Manchester Arndale After Dark event. And it was insaaaane! The aim of the event was to showcase some of the gorgeous party dresses available in the Arndale. Each of us Fbloggers was sent out on a mission to scour the shops and pick our fave party pieces. And here's what happened...

The dresses were judged by actual Victoria from In The Frow!

Pieces from across the Arndale were on display on the night and I immediately recognised this sparkly number from my All Saints shopping trip... (reunited again, my love!!)

Each girl was treated to a mini make over to make sure we were looking appropriately glam. Fellow Bloggers Gail from The Equinox Fashion and Hayleigh, get done up... I was next! 

Checking out The competition! These beaut bloggers rocked their party dresses!  From Left, Michelle from What Shell Says in Georgie from She Dreams in Lipsy and Katie from The Quick Red Fox in TK Maxx.

Team All Saints! Woop Woop! It was so nice to catch up with the guys who work with All Saints day in and day out. The gang said that they had come straight from work, but in true 'Saints' style, they looked HOT.

Waiting for our close ups... Each blogger got the chance to sell their dress to the judges in front of the MA Glam Cam and pose up a storm!

Also their to capture our looks in all their glory was the amazingly talented Dom and Ink. Do you recognise any of the bloggers on display?!

Here's my look from the night... My gorgeous Tonya Lew Dress from All Saints was 100% silk and felt amazing. The shape was simple yet cool and I can't wait to wear this again and again. 

The dresses were all judged on the night and mine got picked for the Top Ten! Woohoo! If you like this dress too, head over to the Manchester Arndale site to vote for your favourite look and you could win £100 to spend in store. AMAZING!!
