On the 2nd I attended #BLFW for the first day of the September event in London's Leicester Square. The fashionable affair included so many amazing brands and designers showcasing their latest designs from SS14 to AW14 Collections, featuring the following brands:

• Rocco Fashion
and much more!

The event was held at The Penthouse in Leicester Square, seven floors up with stunning views over Leicester Square and London and two rooms featuring two bars, seating areas and DJ area too perfect for eventing and socialising.  

The event itself started at 4pm for VIB Bloggers and invited Photographers which was great to attend as a Photographer and join in and observe all of the VIB activities and festivities, in a less crowded format also which made it easier to network and chat to all the brands. 

It was so nice to be greeted with goodies from cute little cupcakes to Boomf Blogger Fashion Week printed marshmallows. On the #BLFW Pre Party the accessories and goodies were all themed pink, with with straws and pink sweets, however on the 2nd the goodies were themed green! With green straws, green cupcakes and green themed candy bar.

The Boomf Bloggers Love Fashion Week printed marshmallows are jut adorable and such a fabulous idea and they really intrigue me. So perfect for events from weddings to baby showers and perfect edible gifts too that I think are a genius creation

The event - like the #BLFW Pre Party - had little areas dedicated to Blogging related items such as 'The Vlogging Booth' where Jessica Yau (@jyukimi) was located with her Official Vlog videoing the event as well as interviewing Bloggers about their blogs, vlogs and of course their #BLFW outfit choices

See Jessica's Official Vlog Trailer for #BLFW here, featuring a little snippet from myself also.

Another area at the event was the Gifting Area featuring brands such as Verity Warr (Verity Anne Clothing), RUSH,  as well as adorable handmade rings from Ellie Air and much more! For brands and Bloggers to meet, discuss their styles, blogs, collections and even be lucky enough to be gifted some of the brands and designer's items. 

There was also a lot of demonstrations and presentations taking place also from Beauty Works about their amazing hair extensions and hair pieces with an iPad Look Book of celeb clients from Amy Willerton to Nicole Scherzinger

Beauty Works have an extensive selection of hair pieces and extensions in a vast range of colours, lengths and styles from ombré, brunettes, blondes and auburns.

Their new shades for Summer an AW are just gorgeous! A stunning simple nude, deep red and a perfect pink, all displayed so beautifully in tempting cocktail glasses full of samples for Bloggers to try and test. 

I can't wait to try out my cute samples, but as a timeless shade I am extremely excited to try the nude, which I will blog and vlog about of course!

I'll wear my red shade from Leighton Denny with my Russian Matte Red MAC Lipstick, new AW14 Fiorelli Handbag (will be featured in my #BLFW Day 2 Event post coming soon to Styled by Charlie) to create a gorgeous summery but bright fashionable look.

I'd style my pink shade from Leighton Denny with gorgeous Rosey Bowtique Daisy Necklace, MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick I plan to purchase and my adorable Primark Floral Heels that are so, so, so, so, so similar to the Ted Baker ones but for only £12.00, for a cutesy girly look.  

One of my favourite brands from Day 1 at #BLFW was Verity Anne Clothing by the extremely talented Verity Warr

Verity's stunning handmade collection features must have items from delicate pleated dresses to sweatshirt tunics and checked two pieces. Every item is made in the most gorgeous materials from thick sweats to boxy checks and must have scuba fabrics

Even Verity's cute paper bags were fitting to the brand from the hand printed logos and adorable green stripes with hand tied tags printed with Verity Anne's 'hanger' logo, which I love!

each planning and debating style tips. 

The collection consisted of a gorgeous array of perfectly arranged items in colour and pattern order from perfect whites to pretty prints and checks.

My favourite piece from the collection had to be the Oversized White Tunic Scuba Tee which I'd love to style with a chunky statement necklace, over the knee leather boots and a leather jacket to complete the perfect look. 

Verity spent the whole day chatting and discussing her collection with the #BLFW Bloggers.

It was so lovely to see Lauren from Ellie Air Jewellery again from the #BLFW Pre Party Event and the chance to obsess over her amazing handmade Tesoro Collection

Ellie Air's SS15 Tesoro (Treasure) Collection is handmade perfection with it's unique and hidden desires in the designs echoing the 'Treasure' name.

“I believe that less is more and creating a piece of jewellery for what it is leaves the context and meaning of the item up to the wearer, especially when it becomes such a personal part of you.” 
- Lauren, Ellie Air

I extremely lucky enough to have the chance of choosing my favourite piece from Ellie Air's handmade ring collections which stem back from Lauren's first collection and first Ellie Air experiments and one off designs. 

I think I possibly tried on every ring in the handmade collection tray, as they were all so beautiful, as well as all varying in size it was too difficult to choose...

However, I settled on this gorgeously delicate and exquisitely designed silver twirled elegant ring that I just adore. Perfect for an understated look or to use to create a statement array of rings as a stacker ring

I wear my Ellie Air Ring on my wedding finger (naughty!), only because I've been after a gorgeous new ring or a while, but with not many fingers left to put them on, I just couldn't resist a little understated Ellie Air special and one off piece for my left hand.

Ellie Air's SS15 Collection is just stunning. I'm obsessed with every piece, from the amazing Tesoro Ring with its adorable green jewel and delicate silver joining to the midi ring feature it's so unique and utterly stunning! 

I also adore the gorgeous and so extremely exquisite Tesoro Earrings with the stunning and so individual pull through drop feature which is such a different way to wear earrings making them even more desirable and special, an available in silver and rose gold, suits to everyones taste.
