The Show: Ten | Celebrating the Bullring’s Birthday

Hello ladies and gents!

Claire and I officially had a Day of Fun yesterday, in the form of hitting up the Bullring’s 10th birthday party. I don’t know about you, but most of the tenth birthdays I have attended have involved screaming children, deflated balloons and bits of birthday cake squished into unmentionable places. Not many have involved Mollie King and male models sitting down in front of me on a catwalk. Safe to say, you can guess which I prefer…

Us Stylingo gals have big love for the Bullring. Our days at the University of Birmingham were often spent lurking around Topshop debating whether a dress was a better use for our loans than buying the latest edition of the Canterbury Tales. In fact, when Claire and I first met during first year, we bumped into each other in the Bullring and realised that we were two kindred souls…mostly because we both like shopping alone like the antisocial weirdos we are.

So needless to say, we were mega excited when we were invited to attend The Show: Ten, which was a catwalk show giving everyone a headsup on autumn/winter trends and hosted by the insanely beautiful Mollie. We donned on some jazzy outfits, hopped on the train and here is a little sneak peak of what our day was like.

And here are a few of our favourite outfits from the show. The idea was that they showcased 10 autumn/winter trends, which as you would imagine included lots of tartan, PVC, pastels and animal print. It was most excellent. Oh yeah, and just in case you hadn’t noticed – we were FROWING. Huzzah!

If I am ever this close to Mollie again, it will probably be because I’m violating a restraining order I have become the sixth member of the Saturdays. We then obviously went out for Saturday afternoon cocktails, because what would a Day of Fun be without a few fruit based alcoholic beverages?

And finally, like the classy birds we will always be, we bought 99p baguettes and legged it to Primark. You can take the homegirls out of Coventry but…

Happy birthday Bullring, we love you with all of our tiny hearts and will continue to give you money until we die or you decide that Pilot is a shop worth including in your vast array of establishments.
