On wednesday the 26th of March I had the amazing opportunity to attend the first ever Bloggers Fashion Week in London. The event was organised by Danielle from Bloggers Love and it brought together music, fashion, beauty, alcohol (duh) and bloggers. The dress code was All-Black City Chick for the wednesday event so I didn't have an issue choosing an outfit since we can certainly say my wardrobe does not lack when it comes to black items. They were not really strict though and at the entrance I spotted girls wearing white, florals and what not.
In case you didn't know BFW went from Monday to Wednesday and each day there was a different dress code, different presents and overall activities/fun stuff. Unfortunately I could not make it to the other days but I came home with a bag full of goodies and a little tipsy just from that one night.
The venue was the Penthouse and the view was stunning as you could see from my Instagram photo. There was a counter doing some really nice face-painting. The queue was quite big when I checked so I didn't get to have anything done on my face but it looked absolutely beautiful. I actually have never had anyone do any kind of fun work on my face - not even makeup - since my last experience was traumatising . A bit OT but I have some trust issues since visiting the Benefit counter in my town last year and getting my face ruined by this chick who had no clue on how to apply anything. I definitely need to get over it soon.
They were also offering blow drying sessions from what I've seen, which is great since it was a rainy afternoon and if anyone was out and about in London all day, like me, then chances are they had flat hair. The hairdressers were very friendly and fun.
I know this is going to sound quite antisocial but I didn't really stay there too long - 40 minutes probably. I actually had my mum waiting for me outside so we went shopping afterwards. Woop Woop
I wasn't the only one leaving quite early. Many people were going out or coming in as I was out the door. The thing I like about these kind of events is how open they are. There is no fixed time and you can show up or go away at any point without feeling like a right bitch. I am not the best party person in all honesty. I did enjoy my time a lot and had a couple of drinks but it would have been more fun if I knew people there. I'm a new blogger that only started in January so I don't really know anyone that shares the same passion - or at least not in person. I'm kinda awkward at first as well so unless someone approaches me I can easily go all night without really speaking to anyone else - unless I have to. Sounds super weird, I know. The girls promoting products and giving freebies though were so nice and I had a lovely chat with them!
I adored the location, the energy, the vibe and the goodie bags but hopefully next time I will have some company there. I'd love to meet some of YOU! Leave me comments if you could be attending future blogger events or if you're kinda awkward like me so I can feel a little better about myself and we can unite in a circle of awkwardness ;)
