BLFW // DAY THREE

So I was pretty gutted to see Bloggers Fashion Week coming to an end, but boy did they save the best till last. Day three of Bloggers Fashion Week just kind of bought everything together for a final very VIP night which was tons of fun. The evening event was so exclusive that there were even some reality TV stars there which I suppose isn't so 'exclusive' but you know an event has got people talking if Celebrity Big Brother contestants turn up!

On the last day, the entire upstairs had been laid out to create a bloggers beauty bar and they practically covered almost everything. We could get our hair and nails done, get our eyebrows shaped or have eyebrow extensions added (!), we could have our makeup done and, later on in the evening, there was even a fake tan booth set up downstairs! It was really great to not only talk to all the different brands offering these services for things like advice or to get any questions answered, but it was just also really lovely to be 'made up' ready for the evenings events.

There was a certain buzz in the air when it came to the final fashion show as if everything had been turned up a notch - everything felt just that bit more VIP and classy for the final night, so I was really glad that I managed to get my hair and makeup done for this.

During the day, the downstairs bar had also been created for another Bloggers Boutique, which featured some of the brands from throughout the last few days and also some fab new ones. I absolutely loved chatting with Boomf, a company that are in partnership with James Middleton and who create personalized marsh mellows using photos from your instagram! Is that a cute idea or what?! I ordered some on the day and they arrived promptly through my letter box a few days later and I was ever so pleased with them. Not only were they really yummy, it was also such a different concept that I'd never heard of before.

I also enjoyed mooching around and having a gander at clothes from the soon to be launched brand Darccy, who specialise in romantic and vintage dresses and coats. Their products are absolutely beautiful; they're all soft and feminine and very much a nod to the fashion in the Victorian days, but with a modern twist. I picked up the most stunning dress which I'm so pleased with and will be wearing to my cousins wedding later this year.

There were so many lovely brands, not only on the last day but throughout the whole of BLFW and I simply do not have the space to write about them all here. Luckily, I collected SO many business cards and will be checking out some of these brands further, as well as popping up a few posts about them later on.

So after we'd mooched around the bloggers boutique and got ourselves looking lovely at the beauty bar, it was almost time for the final few fashion shows. After having a lot of fun in the photobooth set up specifically for the event, we took our seats to watch the shows featuring the brands Gerda Truubon, Rufflee, Hidden Fashion and Girl Meets Dress.

Unfortunately, all my photos from the fashion shows turned out RUBBISH, but there are plenty of blog posts flying around with some stunning photos from each of the shows.

By the time it all finished, I was exhausted but definitely felt like a complete VIB. As I stated before, hosting a bloggers fashion week seems like such a natural thing, considering bloggers are so necessary to fashion these days, it's any wonder why one hasn't been hosted before! Bloggers Love did an absolutely fab job of hosting the whole event, and I'm ever so grateful for the opportunity to be a VIB. Not only has it provided me with tons of content for my blog, I also managed to network loads and, finally, I just really enjoyed it all so much. So thanks a bunch Bloggers Love, and here's to next year!
