#MAAfterDark Party

But now to the details of the fabulous event itself! On Thursday 27th of November I was lucky enough to be invited to Manchester Arndale's fashion blogger event. I had been contacted earlier in the week and had been asked to come into Manchester the night before the event to pick out my outfit from USC (www.usc.co.uk). The link to the AX Paris dress that I chose is here! (only £50 its the perfect Christmas party dress!!)
 
When I arrived at the event itself we were greeted by a glass of Prosecco and a room filled with party dresses, make up and hair artists and lovely bloggers!
Victoria from www.inthefrow.com was a guest judge of our outfits so was there looking beautiful as ever when we walked in. We were then treated to having our hair and make up done by the lovely make up and hair stylists they had brought in for us and then we were given our dress after it had been lovingly hung up for us to go and get changed into our perfect party look!
 
 
 
After we had changed we went and recorded pieces for their YouTube channel ManchesterArndaleTV which was a little nerve racking but never the less very very fun!
 
 
 
After all this we were left to chat amongst ourselves and get to know each other and learn about our blogs and of course have a chat to the wonderful Arndale team and Victoria herself who was ever so stunning and the most genuine down to earth person I have ever met!
 
This was my finished party look that I wore for the event!
 

 
My dress is from USC available here! at £50
My shoes are also from USC available in store and in the sale it was £6!!
My accessories were also from USC in store
My shoes were from Garage Shoes
My belt was from a River Island belt
 
What I love about my look is just how good value it was. I was gobsmacked when I looked at the price tag after trying the dress on as every time I have seen a wow statement dress such as this it has always been out of my price range and into the hundreds, which you would not be wanting to really pay for a party or Christmas dress. However this stunning dress was £50! I was also ever so impressed with the cut and fit of the dress itself, it was not baggy at all in any places and fit perfectly at the bottom which is where I thought it would fit the least, alas I was pleasantly surprised! So honestly this would look fabulous on any shape or size and would be bound to give you confidence on a night out! What is not to love?!
 
The event itself was so amazing and the Arndale team were even more fabulous and wonderful. When the night was drawing to a close the judges went off to choose their top 10 favourite looks from all of us at the event. They chose mine to be in the top 10!!! I was so so happy as I just loved my look. My look and the nine others will be displayed in the Arndale on the weekend of the 5th of December.
 
The top ten looks chosen by Victoria from InTheFrow and judges!
 
You now have the chance to win a £100 Manchester Arndale voucher by going to https://www.manchesterarndale.com/after_dark_home.aspx and choosing your favourite look! My look is Party Look Three!
