Ladies Day at Down Royal!

I was super excited to be invited along to the press launch of the Down Royal Victoria Square Ladies Day on September 14th this year. Thanks to Katrina Doran who heads up the Fashion & Beauty Bloggers (FABB) Network & owner at Sugahfix for organising it. It was a great opportunity to have a FABB catch up with the stylish Niamh, KatrinaGemma-Louise (below) and Dawn:

We got treated to a gorgeous fashion show featuring race-day outfits chosen by Victoria Square Personal Stylist, Rebecca McKinney. My favourites included this gorgeous Hobbs dress & Grainne Maher Millinery headpiece as modelled by Miss Northern Ireland, Tiffany Brien, whom I had the pleasure of meeting at the Boat Races back in June:
I also loved this gorgeous neutral ensemble from Reiss:
The FABB girls are going to join in the fun at Down Royal on the 14th September and you can be there too with a chance to win £5000 worth of prizes in the Best Dressed competition! Tickets will be on sale closer to the time, costing £10...but what to wear? I'll do a post closer to the time with some of my suggestions but you can also book an appointment with Rebecca at her styling suite in Victoria Square with prices from £20. 
After the show, I was lucky enough to try on Grainne Maher's amazing headpiece as worn by Tiffany in the photo above. Move over Tiff....this one's mine!!
Armed with our fab Victoria Square Ladies' Day goody bags, we were invited to visit the newly opened Inglot store downstairs, where there were more goody bags for us. Was blown away by the gorgeous make-up in Inglot. I've been using the primer, foundation and cream blusher for a few days now and I'm coming back for more. Very impressed with the prices and the quality and that's where the lovely Gemma-Louise took my outfit photo:
