*Dress - C/O Jones+Jones // Shoes - ASOS // *Clutch - Niki Brighton Designs
Hello! It seems like ages since I blogged so apologies for that, I'm now trying to juggle my new job with blogging and I thought it'd be really easy; turns out it's not. So last Wednesday I attended the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013 and I went with the gorgeous Amanda from HoneyPopKisses ! It was held at the OXO tower in London and I must say the views were spectacular, however I didn't get any pictures as I didn't have a camera and my phone pics were awful haha.
The evening was filled with free cocktails and champagne, cupcakes, you could have your hair done and there were plenty of cameras surrounding us. I didn't win an award but I want to say thank you to everyone who voted for me because without your votes I wouldn't have even been there to tell the tale! Much love to you all :)
Now my outfit, I felt like an orange princess in this Audrey dress from Jones+Jones! It's vibrant, elegant and very me, I was firstly going to wear a top skirt and heels but then I thought well dresses and cute flats are more suited to me so I opted for this one. It was so comfy and before I left for London I just wanted to twirl around all the time like a child haha. I got the shoes from ASOS at a bargain of £14, I've worn these loads since I bought them and thought they'd go well with the dress.
I was so undecided about which bag to take, I tried about 5 with the outfit but when I came across this funky clutch from Niki Brighton I was like wow I have to wear this one! Now I know it clashes colour wise but because they're so different they kind of go together?! Like they say, opposites attract ;) Niki has some wonderful designs you really should take a look at her Bigcartel site, you can fit loads in there so it's definitely worth the money.
The goody bag was uh-maz-ing, when I got on the train I rummaged through and was amazed by the things Cosmo had put in. In the photo above are three of my faves from it, the fur head scarf/warmer thingy I can't think of the proper name, pearl drops toothpaste (woop!) and the Elemis face wash. We also got a cookery book, a free blow dry worth £85, popcorn, jewellery, Pinky vodka, fake tan and more! It was probably the best goody bag I've had <3
What do you think to my outfit?
