west coast cooler FASHIONWEEK.

A few weeks ago I shared with you what was gonna be happening over Belfast fashion week



this weekend I was lucky enough to be given tickets to attend the catwalk shows on Friday and Saturday.

Highstreet Heaven


EXCEL clothing.

held at the quaint quirky little location of LIFE church Belfast, I was welcomed by an array of sparkly lights and letter lights…

my favourite I know!! 🙊

as well as a complimentary glass of west coast cooler and a jam packed goody bag I was a happy little gal before the show even began!!




I was super excited for this one as I am a poor little high-street obessesor I knew I would want everything from this

…I was right.

some of the shops featured in this highstreet show were:

  • DV8
  • NEXT
  • M&S

the name of the event well and truly was fitting. the beautiful models sampled some of the best AW trends around right now. I adored all of it including some of the models….

but I have to say I was truly impressed by GEORGE at ASDA and SAVIDA at DUNNES.


gorgeous right?!

for my look I opted for my new trench style coat from http://www.missguided.co.uk and a classic black leather trouser, black blouse & knee high boots.



Saturday night – EXCEL CLOTHING

fashion retailer http://www.excelclothing.com brought a lot more of the finer and original pieces to the catwalk. Showcasing brands such as:

  • DKNY

some timeless beautiful pieces from all designers, I particularly loved the cameo kissland dresses and playsuits. not to mention the cutest little kids in the world doing such a fab job showing their outfits off and the male models….

Did I already mention that? 😏


 my look for this night was based around my beaut new fur gilet from TK MAXX, misguided trousers, ZARA cami & justfab laceup heels.



there you have it gals, my looks & some fab looks from the WESTCOAST COOLER BELFAST FASHIONWEEK. for fashion lovers like me it is a perfect evening out, I couldn’t recommend it more! roll on March…

speak soon,

lotsa love
