The Party…After Dark

So as you may already know, I was invited to take part in the glamorous event hosted by Manchester Arndale Centre late last week.  The Afterdark was a celebration of all things glitz and glam – namely our dresses!

Around 25 top bloggers around Manchester were selected to choose the ‘perfect’ party dress this season from a selected retailer.  I was gifted some cash to splash out a fabulous dress and my retailer was Pastiche.  Funnily enough I was the only blogger to pick a full length dress for the event and I absolutely loved it! 

I went for the high slit, almost plunging neck line, dazzling blue dress.  The fabric was netted so it was really figure hugging and showed off all the curves in all the right places (or so I hoped). 

It was fun, sexy but relaxed at the same time and it’s certainly a dress I will wear again.  But here’s the news, my wonderful sister just happened to go into labour on the same evening so sadly I never actually got to see the night in full swing.  I did however pop in earlier and had a pretty fab photo-shoot with the Manchester Evening News photographer. 

The actual event was without a doubt amazing and a real treat for all the girls that attended.  Illustrator and writer Dom from created some pretty wonderful drawings of the wonderful fashionistas on the night.  The guest judging panel included Emily Heward from The MEN, an Arndale representative and Manchester based Fashion blogger Victoria (Inthefrow) who’s making a huge name for herself in the North as well as around the UK with her fabulous blog!

Although I never would have known if my dress would have been selected by the judging panel, I was pretty pleased with it and enjoyed being part of such a fun event.

– I think that the girlies that did make the cut selected some cute dresses and certainly knew how to rock a look!  So as a testament to all the wonderful bloggers that took part, please check out the link below where you can vote for your ‘favourite’ party dress for 2014!
