So on Thursday night photographers, celebrities, models, bloggers, designers, editors, shoppers, writers and quiet a vast majority of Mancunian fashionistas joined the Vogue team in braving the bitter cold to celebrate their 5th annual Fashion Night Out, which this year was hosted in my home town of Manchester (a very proud moment, not just for myself I would imagine but for all fellow Mancunian fashionistas). The city was alive and buzzing with people who all shared the same reason to be there, for the shopping, the discounts, the cocktails, the live music and the buzz of seeing some of the most respected and loved editors and designers in the British fashion industry.

We started our night with the high street and to the Boohoo bus, where there were goodie bags, make-up tutorials, nail painting stations, loud music (which we loved) oh and clothes of course, lots and lots of clothes to marvel over. We then headed in The Arndale Centre and to River Island where we obtained some lovely cocktails.

Topshop was our next port of call, where we started with a #PuckerUp kiss for the chance to win a VIP weekend in London! (Who cares if I'm a guy, hand me the lipstick). Next we listened to Topshop's creative director and editor at Vogue Kate Phelan talk about the new season at Topshop, what every girl should have in her wardrobe, the key pieces at to have for Autumn/Winter 2013 and also what it's like to work for one of the biggest and most influential magazines on the newsstand. Kate went on to talk about how we the ordinary, everyday people who walk around the streets with our provocative style influence and shape Vogue into what it is. "There is no other country in the world like the UK for it's street style, honestly if you go to another country in search for it, it all feels so put on, here no matter what City you're in, it all feels so natural and so flawless", it was so inspiring to hear.

And so after Topshop, we left the high street for the designer and what better designer place to start than Selfridges! There was so much going on in-store, from a live DJ and beautiful male models wondering the store, to popcorn vending machines and crepes, from a photograph session in a giant Selfridges bag to the shopping itself of course, there was so much fun happening! We also headed to the MAC make-up counter where my friends tried pretty much every lipstick they have on their counter (MAC make-up is a personal favourite for most of my friends/family and I have to say if I was a woman, I'd definitely be using it myself).

Earlier in the night we got stopped by two awesome Gap scouts on Market Street who told us they loved our style, which prompted our final visit of the evening, which was to Gap of course! We got our Vogue Tee's, an oreo smoothie (which was the most delicious thing I've ever had) and we tweeted in a vote off with three fabulous styled looks for the evening (the one below was my favourite #YouveBeenSpotted #VFNOxGAP).

I want to end this post by saying a massive thank you to everyone that made the night so amazing, the retailers, the shops, the DJ's and of course the guys at Vogue, the event was such a joy to attend, and I certainly hope that you return very soon for another amazing night of shopping, fun and fashion!
