The show had 5 main themes: sports luxe, beachwear, pretty, formal and festival. Below are my favourite outfits from the evening.
|Sports Luxe - especially love the trainers.|
|Formal wear & Pretty - these dresses were £18!!|
|Festival - we all need a pair of the cute wellies.|
|Wedge trainers - £18|
|This jumper is the perfect way to brighten up any outfit at any age - £14|
I thought I would investigate whilst I was in Asda doing my shopping this morning ( the double life of a mummy blogger). I went straight to the clothes section to see if I could find any of the pieces I saw last night. I found some of them, but truth be told I struggled to pick them out amongst the rails of badly laid out clothes and I think I have found the problem.
Obviously no one can expect the clothes to look the same on the rack as they do on a gorgeous 6ft thin model. However, when items are just grouped loosely according to style and with no real co-ordination, it makes it very difficult for someone with no idea of style to figure out what way it's going to look best. This means that a lot of people put things together very wrong and make the clothes look awful.When you walk into a more mainstream high street shop like Topshop, the clothes are grouped according to what will look well together which makes shopping really easy for fashion newbies like me. Asda had things paired really badly and none of the pieces worn together last night were anywhere near each other in the store I visited. What I would recommend is George's website. I had a good browse and they have even more gorgeous things online, and their site is very easily navigated.

The bikinis were well displayed & I love the denim shirt.
|From catwalk to store..|
|Jacket - Topshop £55|
Top - H&M £12
Skirt - River Island £20
Shoes - Next £40
It just goes to show that when you think about what you wear, it does pay off and you don't need to be skinny to be on trend. The skater skirt with braces (and the clutch bag that I don't have in the pic) was a last minute purchase from River Island 10 minutes before getting ready. I had another black skater skirt to wear from Topshop, but the braces added a bit of something extra, whilst the material was thicker which made the skirt sit better on my hips. Looks like it paid off and can't wait to see the professional photos, as well as the video that Zoe and I were made take part in (cringe is all I can say).
