Belfast Fashion Week AW14

On Friday night I attended Belfast Fashion Week and their local designers and boutiques show. All of the cities leading ladies were in attendance and all looking incredibly stylish. I love people watching during the shows as it is the perfect opportunity to take note of how they have created a certain look. It’s always an inspirational time for me and I often find myself thinking, “I never thought of styling that skirt that way.”

Friday was a very busy day for me so for the show, I wanted to wear something casual and comfortable. I opted for a complete Topshop look by coincidence. I have been wearing their bird printed longline jacket a lot recently and I teamed it with a burgundy lace crop top and white lace camisole. As you can tell, I’m really into lace this season. It’s effortlessly chic and easy to wear. I also wore my trusty leather trousers and tan ankle boots for the occasion.

I’m just noticing how pale I look in this photo. The joys of light reflecting make up and a camera flash, eh?! 😉

When it came to accessories, I chose my favourite tote from Tom and Eva along with my new Fiorelli necklace. I find that once I fall in love with a certain look, piece of fabric or accessory, I will wear it to the death. Are any you of lovelies like me?

The pretty Fiorelli necklace is of course a rose gold style. I have been obsessed with this style of jewellery for a few years now. I have built up a strong collection of costume statement necklaces so now I’m really into the more delicate look. I adore layering my jewellery, it adds a little more variety and creativity to your outfit. A few weeks ago, I attended the House of Frasers AW14 press show and we were gifted with a voucher to spend in store. I obviously choose this gorgeous necklace. Thank you ♥

I spent the evening with the adorable Aoife from Bella Malone and her lovely mama, Collette. Aoife is a fellow FABBer and all round cutie. We sat and lusted over the styles and models. I’m in the middle of growing my hair, I was feeling incredibly lazy on Friday, so I put a plait on both sides of my hair and pulled it back. I’m not use to this kind of look but I just styled for my mood. My make up was quite AW with a winged eyeliner look and MAC’s lipstick in Sin. I felt like quite a rebel wearing it!

Of course, the models were all absolutely stunning looking. Each look was just perfection, a strong model and flawless designer is always the ultimate combination when it comes to a successful FashionWeek. Cathy Martin, BFW designers, models and everyone who assisted in the shows did a magnificent job. I had a great evening, thank you!
