Athlone Fashion Trail

Tuesday, 4 October 2016

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!

This weekend I headed off to Athlone to attend the Athlone Fashion Trail along with 19 other VIP bloggers. The event consisted of us wandering the streets of Athlone, attending fashion shows in selected boutiques around the town and being completely spoilt every step of the way! The whole event was set up by Saibh and Sinead from Into the West Bloggers Network who did a fabulous job of organising such an amazing event. 

Ciara and I at Colm Quinn BMW Showroom

We started off our day by having a great breakfast at the Colm Quinn BMW Showroom in Athlone and all I can say is.. GOALS. The cars were absolutely beautiful, especially the Mini's (ahh the dream). We were then chauffeured to the first stop in amazing BMW's.



The first stop was Kadee Bride, which showcased some beautiful wedding dresses. 

The next stop was the famous Burgess, which is the oldest department store in Ireland!

After that we headed to Olivia Danielle, a gorgeous little boutique with even more gorgeous clothes- they even started recently selling Freddys Jeans!

Cloda and I at lunch.
Our next stop was the Athlone Town Centre, who showcased looks from a range of different shops like Topshop, Zara, Oasis and more. To see there full directory click here. We were treated to an unreal lunch afterward in a section of the shopping centre which was cordoned off, overlooking all of the shops- so so spoilt! The lunch was provided by The Fatted Calf, a restaurant in the shopping centre.

Other stops after lunch included Nells Closet, Boutique Clodagh and back again to Burgess.

To finish the day off we had the wrap party in the Radisson, where cocktails and comfy chairs were at hand- much needed after our long day!

I'd like to thank Saibh and Sinead for such a wonderful day- I met so many lovely people and I can't wait to join them again for another event very soon.
