This weekend I went to a three-day style event in Birmingham. The event was hosted by gorgeous radio and TV presenter George Lamb, and allowed stylish shoppers and fashionistas-alike to sample the exclusive instore offers in the famous Bullring, as well as a catwalk show at the Town Hall. Here is a little feature on what I wore to the event as well as showcasing some cheeky little things I bought whilst I was in the Midlands too!
Below is the outfit I wore to Style Birmingham. I decided to dress for the cold and windy ‘Brummie’ weather, and sport my vintage cut up Levi’s (which I have worn religiously since I bought them a week or so ago!), as well as my brown belt from River Island to hold them up!
Jumper – Republic
Swallow Necklace – Primark
Blouse – New Look
Belt – River Island
Shorts – Vintage
Shoes – Vintage
WHAT I BOUGHT
I also took this event as an opportunity to do a spot of shopping! I didn’t buy much as I had to dash off to different instore events, but I think I made some rather good purchases!
I visited Topshop and bought a lovely dark blue jumper for £20.80 (it was originally £26 but there was a 20% discount offer on for students!) I really need some more jumpers, so I thought this would be a good investment. I also bought this cute collar gold necklace for £8 (the original price was £10), which I would wear with quite a few of my clothes! Collar necklaces are ‘in’ at the moment with hot designers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Moschino accessorising their designs with this new Autumn/Winter 2011 staple piece. I have to also point out that I love Topshop’s new retail bag! The snake design is so quirky and unique, hence why I had to include it in this picture!
The next stop was Urban Outfitters, where I was kind and bought my boyfriend this amazing Rubik’s cube speaker! You simply plug it into your computer and you instantly have loud music to annoy your flatmates with or party the night away to! I’m so jealous that he has it, is it bad that I want to take away his present and keep it all to myself?
Krispy Kreme was the last stop on the shopping train! Me and Ali couldn’t resist getting a box of six assorted donuts! I tried the strawberry Glamour Glaze, and I have to say, the glazing tasted a bit like lipgloss which I wasn’t too keen on! The one donut which did surprisingly taste nice was the Cookies and Kreme donut, which was a bit hard to bite into but it was soo yummy at the same time!
So there you go! A little feature on what I wore to Style Birmingham as well as the few things I bought whilst I was in the Midlands! Look out for part two’s post about the event itself as well as a cheeky look at the catwalk shows!
