Hi you beautiful people,
Well, apparently yesterday was Blue Monday and we’re all supposed to be sobbing into our cups of tea this week. HOWEVER. Claire and I are feeling positive and can’t think of anything to be sad about, especially since we found out about this excellent competition in association with NOWSEEN. For those of you who don’t know, NOWSEEN are a jewellery brand that specialise in super awesome pieces with genuine gems and proper metal (cya later Primark green fingers). And they’re also hosting a competition for London Fashion Week, where one lucky winner (and a great mate. I might pick Claire) can win Luxe tickets to Fashion Weekend as well as £100 each worth of NOWSEEN jewellery. PARDON ME AND ZUT ALORS. Bop me on the head and call me Sally.
To win, you have to post an OOTD picture of what you would wear to London Fashion week, write a blog post about it and email your entry to the excellent competition people. We obviously couldn’t say no to such a fabulous competition, so here are our entries. To win, there’s a magical voting system and the OOTD with the most votes wins.
I decided to keep things pretty casual for my LFW outfit; I know some people go uber-glam for the week, but imagine tripping over in seven inch heels and ending up sprawled in a heap at Anna Wintour’s feet. That would not be faaaahbulous. I teamed my trusty leather leggings with my new body from Missguided and accessorised with some fur (it’s chilly down in London), my beautiful Marc B bag and my new babies: the Boohoo boots.
I’m not usually one to co-ordinate shoes and bags, but I think in this case it pulls the outfit together. If you can’t be a bit matchy-matchy at LFW, then when the hell can you?
I featured this OOTD in a blog post a while back (if you want to check it out, I don’t know why you would, but you can have a look here) but the most excellent and wonderful thing with this competition is that you don’t have to put a new outfit to enter. I did actually take some pics for the entry but I looked horrible and squiffy eyed, so I thought that I would feature an old outfit. My dress is from a boutique on ASOS called Your Eyes Lie and my beanie is from House of Hoxshore. I probably wouldn’t wear connies to LFW (imagine if I bumped into Kate Moss, she’d probably biff me), so I’d change those battered bad boys to a pair of chunky heeled boots. Huzzah.
If any of you stunners fancy entering, check out the We Love Fashion site where there’s an entry form. If you want to vote for either of our outfits, there’s a vote section on there too.
Good luck to us. Our fingers, toes and eyes are crossed.
