But despite all that I had such a great time!
I met up with Leia from HiFashion and her lovely friends, Nicola from FAB (who was one of the organisers), and MJ from Dreaming Spires and Old Car Tires for the first time. I also ate a lot of free food (and I mean a lot! Every time poor Leia saw me I had another sandwich in my hand! I was trying not to have to cook when I got home you see!) and came away having successfully swapped my old clothes for shiny new ones as well! I'd call that a big win!
So what did I get?
A lovely bag with my name on it (it's sporting the sadly forgotten badge too!)
Containing this Topshop skirt! Apologies for the picture, it's so dark when I get home from work nothing comes out right sadly. It's grey, short and ruffly which are my three favourite things though, so I was very happy!
Thanks so much to Nicola and everyone involved for inviting me! Check out Flickr for more photos of the event.
