Next Styling Challenge

Photobucket

Photobucket


A handful on fashion bloggers were taken up to Leicester - courtesy of Next - a couple of weeks ago (In first class none the less) to visit their HQ and learn more about the brand. We were also there to take part in a styling competition with a 'Key' item that we had assigned to each of us. We were then given rein of their Mock Shop and the competition began. It was literally like being a kid in a candy store. I didn't know where to go first or what to choose, but that didn't last long. My key item was a pair of denim flares that I styled ever so simply with a white T and a cardi. We were also interviewed - check out the video here if you would like to see me talk absolute rubbish. That's what happens when I am put in front of the camera. Ask me my name and I will forget! Maybe I should work on that for future projects!

I had a fantastic day playing dress up and chatting with all the girls and a big thanks to Next and the team for sorting it all out. Coming up tomorrow - piccies from the day.

Hugs & Kisses

Those flares look amazing on you, and I love how you styled them. I'm a sucker for a basic white tee...if only I could keep it clean for more than an hour!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
