M&S Style Challenge

Week #1

One dress of choice from M&S- Four interview scenario’s spread over four weeks.That’s the M&S style challenge. Week 1 Challenge: Creative but classy – create an interview outfit for a fashion role at a well-known UK fashion brand (e.g. a design role, a salesperson, a marketing exec)

I’ve been asked to take part is this great style challenge with Marks and Spencer- ‘what to wear to an interview’ I’ve had to choose one dress of my choice from M&S to style up for four different interview scenarios.This week I’ve had to dress for a position as a marketing executive, salesperson, or other creative role within a well known UK fashion brand.I’m going against 4 other female bloggers.There are also five men (bloggers) doing the same with suits. I’ve kept it chic and simple by adding four key pieces-A smart blazer, a gold belt, nude ankle strap heels and a touch of animal print in this gorgeous handbag. I’ve accessorised with my favorite gold bracelets.

I’m wearing

M&S dress, Louboutin heels, Topshop blazer, Miu Miu belt and Jimmy choo handbag.



Been updating my accessories these last few weeks.. loving the punk and hard edge designs around right now…Today I was hoping to find myself a new jacket for London fashion week but getting what I want is proving quite difficult .. I’ll have to try again tomorrow !!

The Savoy Story

The savoy played host to the Maria Grachvogel show on opening day of London fashion week. The clothes as sophisticated and elegant as the surrounds. The glamour of the woman shown in draped satin open back gowns, loosely hung blouses, slinky dresses  and floor sweeping skirts. It was sexy, soft and alluring. Worn with strong edgy knee high boots  and platform shoes the collection was given a modern day twist. Beautiful clothes for real woman, nothing sweet and girlie here, just strong defiant looks for woman to stand out in. Striking and luxurious with early 20th century inspired silhouettes the collection portrayed a fantasy from an era of real beauty.  I loved this collection

A week

Here are a few snaps from my past week. I’ve styled a woman who had won a competition with a local magazine. Her prize was to be re-styled by myself and pampered for the day. After choosing three outfits for her to model we were taken to the penthouse suite on the 21st floor of the radisson blu, a five star hotel with amazing views of Cardiff, spoilt with delicious food and drink and plenty of giggles…
