Vogue Fashion’s Night Out MCR 2013

Global Fashion Event Vogue Fashion’s Night Out headed to Manchester for the first time this year, and after getting caught up in the thrills and spills of such a stylish evening, I can tell you it definitely delivered! Mixing style and shopping with an array of discounts, DJs, freebies, and fashion shows, this night was every fashionista’s paradise.

Having attended University in the city for four years, Manchester is my second favourite city after London, so experiencing the vibe of such a landmark fashion event there was exciting. Although temptations were high, I managed to keep my purchases down to just the following Brian Lichtenberg-esque RAD t-shirt from River Island…

I’m still longing after the Rihanna for RI Collection (particularly this beauty), but I’ve got my fingers crossed for a Rih Rih x RI-themed Christmas haul this year.

I’d definitely recommend checking out Vogue’s next instalment of their famous Fashion’s Night Out.ย Thanks to Vogue x MCR for a night of fashionable fun!


Obsession Confession: Puffa Jackets

I’m obsessed with puffa jackets.

Bright, shiny, matte, metallic, black, patterned, printed… I love them all. I currently own 5, or 6… it keeps growing, although I know a lot of people who are anti-puffa (often from their reactions to my own). I came across this survey which placed puffa jackets as 8th on the list of clothes we’re most embarrassed to own. They definitely don’t deserve to be placed above Crocs, but they definitely seem to be a love or hate jacket.

It’s bright coloured, patterned or printed ones I like most, although my most recent post-Christmas purchase was black. They’re cosy, come in an array of colours, patterns and styles, and personally I think they’re FUN!

Props to Rihanna!
