I was so excited to attend Style Birmingham Live this year, I went last year and had such a great time! I usually work weekends but managed to get the day off so I could go along. We were invited to a VIP catwalk show, we were given a token for a free glass of bubbly and headed to the VIP area. The DJ was amazing, I felt like I was still in Ibiza ( I came home a few days earlier)

We then headed into the main room for the show. It's a lovely intimate show with only a few rows of seats. The lovely Mark Wright and Stylist Mark Heyes were great hosts!

I'm loved the catwalk and there was some great must have autumn/ winter trends. The music was fab and the models looked gorgeous, Hair by Francesco Group and Make up by Make Up Forever.

John Lewis opened the show, with our brand new John Lewis just opening in Birmingham Grand Central. They had some amazing tailored pieces including capes, brogues and a classic white shirt.

It's all about fringing! Fringe is so on trend and will be going forward into Spring/ Summer. I love fringe bags and detailing on boots and jackets. Faux Fur is another huge trend. I spotted some fab Faux fur waistcosts and sleeveless jackets from Debenhams and New Look during the show.

There was alot of red and burgundy, dark florals and vintage prints. It's all about being clever and picking out the key pieces to add to your wardrobe. I'd say everyone needs a tailored style jacket / coat, some boots, some fringe and some winter florals.

I had such an amazing time at the event and it was lovely to catch up with some amazing bloggers. Style Birmingham is always in September and tickets start at around £16.50 You get loads of discounts throughout the city during the weekend with your ticket and VIP ticket holders get a goody bag.  Birmingham is growing so this is an event not to be missed, keep your eyes and ears open for Style Birmingham 2016
