OOTD: The Clothes Show

So! Last weekend, Team ROR and I, got into my little car and headed down to Birmingham for the Clothes Show Live. If you've never been, picture this... A HUGE room filled with all your fave brands, fashion shows, amazing competitions / bargains AND THEN to top it all, some of your fave celebs! Ideal, right?

Literally, at one point we were being given a demo on a new "all singing, all dancing, exfoliating make up sponge", and then suddenly Millie from Made in Chelsea was walking past us - mere inches away. Ah-mazing. And yes, she is as devastatingly gorgeous in real life!

So, what to wear to such a fashionably fashionable event?! Well, I decided to go for comfort in my over the knee River Island boots and skinny jeans, teamed with a very appropriate "Trust Me I'm A Blogger" tee from Rock On Ruby! My faux fur stole is from Dorothy Perkins and was a treat gifted to us in our goody bags from the Fashion Chick event. I have literally  not stopped wearing this since, I received and it is so snuggly and warm - highly recommended!

There were so many cool fashion and beauty bits on show, but the highlight was the Glitter Lips that were being demo-ed. The idea is to give your lips a totally glitter finish that stays put for hours - totally eye catching! I bought a red version from Ciate, but other companies were doing a range of colours. I'll be reviewing this over the holidays, so stay tuned!

Gorgeous vintage pieces on display - I actually bumped into mega blogger Amy Valentine around here who was super lovely and stopped for a chat!

After browsing the stalls, we got caught up watching a Fashion Show featuring party looks from some of our fave shops... Although, I love the monochrome styling, my fave piece has to be the metallic skirt above!

 Random photo of the day!! How awesome are these pieces from University designer, Charlotte Armistead from Birmingham Uni?

Have you been to the Clothes Show before? What did you think?!


  1. I was there too! I had a great day, and looks like you did too :) http://www.amyelizabethfashion.com/2014/12/a-huge-thank-you-and-even-bigger-apology.html xx

    1. Ah no way! Yes, it was actually really good, I was surprised! Did you get anything?! Kept seeing girls with loooads of shopping bags though and felt like I was being too restrained! xx

  2. Looks like a great day! I used to go to the clothes show every year when I lived in Birmingham. I love your top :) x

    1. Haha! Thanks! Thought it was very appropriate for the day ;-) It was really nice to head somewhere different for the day! xx

  3. Loving the DP Fur, I must have missed you at the Fashion Chick event! Anyway, I have just came across your blog so thought I would say hi :) xx


  4. Thanks for saying hi - LOVE your blog! Yes, a little worried that my blog is going to get quite boring with post after post featuring the DP fur.... :-S Hopefully we'll catch up at an event soon! xx

  5. I sadly missed it this year as some of the brands I really loved previously weren't showing this time round - might try and go again next time! xx
