Hey I've just finished a hectic week and finally managed to get my blog post out about my Clothes show experience, now if you don't want to hear a negative post about your beloved Clothes show then stop reading NOW because sadly this is not going to be me telling you how much I loved it and how amazing it was... Quiet frankly it was embarrassing!
So.... Last weekend I was in Birmingham with my mum for the Clothes Show Live at the NEC. I've been plenty of times when I was at school and I think the last time I was there was with my textiles class in 2005! That should have been my first hint that it just wasn't going to be the same. I remember going with my friends and thinking it was amazing and buying loads of clothes so obviously I'd asked my mother if we could book a hotel and go this year.... I wish I hadn't bothered. Now I don't no if it was just because I was pretty young when I first went but it was nothing like I remembered or imagined.
On to the Beauty Hall now this was a little hit and miss for me. I think there were really good brands and great offers available but there only sooo many nail art kits and teeth whiting treatments you can have/buy in one day. Again the beauty counters were good but they were just repeating the same thing over and over and it got a little boring to wonder around. So after buying my 3rd 'goody bag for £10' which contained exactly the same things as my previous two, I gave up.
I was sooo disappointed in the whole day and even when I told my friends about it and showed them my pics they were a little disheartened. Now I no this is a really negative review but I really felt completely let down and kind of a little pissed that I'd paid £27 to get in, train fairs and overnight stay and I was met with in my own words 'a load of crap'. If you asked me before I went last weekend would I recommend going to the Clothes Show I would have Sound its praises and jumped at the chance to go, however sadly after last weekend I be embarrassed to recommend anyone spending their money and going to this event. Sorry but this got a massive THUMBS DOWN!!
