So, you know I went to PlusNorth yesterday with my BFF, right?
Sure you do, you saw my outfit post here which went totally out of the window when I busted the zip on the very expensive skirt.
Anyway that was the only negative to an otherwise great day!
The event was held at the Manchester Renaissance Hotel on New York Street, which is absolutely beautiful inside.
The event was celebrating and promoting Plus Size fashion, and boy was there some great fashion on offer!
We were lucky enough to see collections and catwalk shows from Evans, Simply Be, Yours, Excite Clothing, Bon Prix among others, and I have to say there are some items I have on order already after seeing how great they looked in person!
When we got there, we were greeted by the Mighty Boof photo machine, which is awesome.
We opted for an animal theme and had these trés romantique snaps done:
Yep, I make a pretty cool tiger.
So, the daytime event was from 1-5(ish) and consisted of a lovely goody bag and a raffle, too!
I won a £30 voucher for Sorrento Clothing, and my friend won a Neal Wolf Haircare Kit – but she had already seen a dress she wanted from Sorrento and we did swapsies!
Then we took a stroll for a coffee and visited Selfridges before the evening event.
Here I picked up the Nars Sheer Glow foundation and some other bits & bobs (review soon), and then we headed back to the Renaissance for the evening ‘do!
This consisted of a beautiful fashion show with items from Scarlett & Jo London for Evans (I saw at least 3 must-have dresses!), food and yet another lovely goody bag with some jewellery, chocolate and nail wraps enclosed – which I cannot wait to use.
The food, although not plentiful, was pretty nice.
Later, there were drinks & karaoke which was great fun and there were some tremendously talented ladies.
In all, a splendid day was had by all!
I look forward to the next PlusNorth event!
