Belfast Fashion Week – Show Report & What I Wore!

Knowing I was going to be attending the Belfast Fashion Week High Street show on Friday night, I was keeping an eye out for a great dress to wear, so when I spotted this one in the M&S sale, I snapped it up!

And all was fine until I tried it on the night before BFW…but found the length quite frumpy on a my 5’6″ frame. So I cut off the black piece on the bottom and this is how it looked on me. Thanks to Stephen Potter for taking this photo on the night!

I had a great night at the show (and afterwards!). It featured lots of affordable stylish pieces from The Outlet at Banbridge, Benetton, Debenhams, French Connection, Marks & Spencer and George at Asda to name just a few. I’ll be featuring some of them on the blog in coming weeks as I think they will be perfect for styling up the school run over the winter. Here’s a selection of pictures from the night also supplied by Stephen Potter:
