Here is an outfit of the night as I went to Manchester on Friday! It's the first time I've been since July 2012 on my graduation so I was EXCITED! As a city, Manchester feels like home after studying there and all the vibes there are right up my street. You wouldn't go out on the town in trainers, put it that way! I love the pace of the city and how everyone takes the weekend as the chance to go all out. It was payday weekend too and I booked the day off work so I could travel up early.
I had some Debenhams vouchers at Christmas and luckily in Bristol the MAC counter is there, so I booked an early makeover with my favourite makeup artist Claire and got a few new things! As I've said before, if you're spending £30 at MAC, you might as well get the free 1 hour makeover! Book in advance though as they sell out quickly! When you start getting a few, the makeup artists will remember you and know exactly what your into. Even though my appointment was at 11am, I knew it would stay on until the evening so later I just topped up this Kimmy K look with a bit more eyeliner and blush, and of course my favourite Eylure 202 double lashes.
I thought I ordered this American Apparel dress when they had a 30% off day but it turns out I somehow didn't! I barely ordered it properly in time and thankfully it came; I always get AA dresses and the shiny effect on this one makes it super flattering. I recommend! I wore my tan Jeffrey Campbell Litas too as I realised the new black heels I bought didn't exactly fit outside the shop - have you ever done that? I swear they were fine when I tried them on but as soon as I paid, they were pain city.
As for Manchester, the shops were glorious and the night was full of party people. Such a good city!!
