Nottingham In Fashion Show And Intu Victoria Centre Bloggers Event

Hi everyone.
On Friday 24th and Saturday 25th March. Nottingham's favourite retailers came together to showcase the best spring and summer styles for a annual Fashion Event which is organised by It's In Nottingham.

The catwalk show was inside the council house overlooking the market square which had a beauty bus which offered make up demonstrations from brands such as Urban Decay and Benefit. The Beauty Temple salon were also offering free mini treatments.

I was invited on Saturday 25th March at 12pm to sit on the front row of the "Club To Campus" theme which celebrates the students of Nottingham.
The themed trends for students were Back To The Fushcia (everything pink), Born In The 80's, Statement Sportswear,  Check Mate (black and white checkered prints) and Spring Bling (floral prints and embellishments).

All of the outfits which were on the catwalk show are on the It's In Nottingham gallery website. My favourite outfits were Outfit15A, Outfit37A and Outfit73A.
I think that It's In Nottingham event gets better every year and it was fantastic to see a variety of body shapes and sizes on the catwalk. I'm a plus size lady so it's nice to see that women who have more curves are celebrated. Fashion should be about wearing clothes that you feel comfortable in no matter what size you are.

At 1:30pm it was then time to head to Intu Victoria Centre for the Spring/Summer bloggers event. To kick start the event all of the bloggers were invited to Cafe Rizzoli for a bellini cocktail (which is a mix of prosecco and fruit puree). Cafe Rizzoli is a italian cafe by the Emett Clock on the Upper Mall. 
We were greeted by Intu Victoria centre staff at Cafe Rizzoli. They took us all downstairs at 2pm (just outside of Boots) to watch a live styling session. This taught us how to make the most of your spring wardrobe by layering clothes and adding accessories.
Then Intu Victoria Centre gathered all of the bloggers together to set us a Spring/Summer style challenge. We had to pick at random out of a bag a £20 Intu Victoria Centre gift card along with a card with a spring summer style trend. I got #ThinkPink which is anything pink themed. 

The rule is that you could buy anything with the gift card (clothes, accessories or make up).Just aslong as it fitted in with the trend that you got given. We had half an hour to buy our items.

Me and Gemma from TheGemAgenda browsed around Victoria Centre together. We visited Monsoon, Accessorize, River Island, Quiz and Superdrug.
I decided to buy a beautiful baby pink scarf with silver sparkles from Quiz which cost £8.99 and also a velvet touch lipstick from Gosh Copanhageon in the shade "159 Romantic" for £7.99 so in total i spent £16.98 which was under budget with plenty of time to spare. Yay :)

At 3pm we all met at the Handmade Burger Co for a meal together. I had a classic beef burger, sweet potato fries and a oreo and cookes milkshake. Yum.
I'd like to thank It's In Nottingham and Intu Victoria for having  me. I had a wonderful afternoon and I'm looking forward to more events in the future.
