As soon as I saw this gorgeous playsuit on ASOS I knew it was going to be mine. I fell in love with the vibrant colour and pretty print instantly. When it arrived I was not disappointed. The long sleeves make this playsuit a bit different, I think they make it look better, and also more practical for winter. I added my American Apparel suede waist belt to make it look even more flattering by pulling my waist in. It was the perfect outfit to wear to a night consisting of two great bloggers' events that I went to last week: Cocktail Tasting at TGI Fridays and the Zara Launch Party for their new Manchester store.
I attended both events with one of my best friends and top blogger, Victoria from In The Frow. TGI Fridays were celebrating 100 years of cocktail making and the introduction of some lovely new cocktails to their menu. Having never been in the TGI Fridays in Manchester before I was very impressed. It was very modern and smart but had a fun, relaxed atmosphere. The cocktails on offer were all incredibly yummy- my favourite was their new Popping Candy Strawberry Margarita. The bar men were very skilled and could make any cocktail requested- including ones that we made up such as a Queen Rosy, featuring vanilla ice cream, champagne and strawberries! We were also treated to some nibbles, all of which were scrumptious, it has definitely made me want to go for a meal and cocktails there in the near future.
After being very full of delicious cocktails and food we made our way over to Zara. As any Manchester girl will know, Zara has been closed for months due to refurbishments and so I was very excited to finally be visiting one of my favourite stores again and seeing the improvements made. It now looks very impressive. Super modern with big plasma screens on the walls, and very slick black and white decor. To be honest it looked like a high-end designer store- very impressive. As we wondered around the store (which is now four floors- kids on the basement, women on ground and the first floor, and men on the second floor), carrying armfuls of clothes and champagne, we were in our element. I bought a gorgeous dress and jumper but I could have bought a lot more!
