House of Fraser Style Challenge

When I first heard about House of Fraser's latest competition [competition now closed] to win an amazing £200 worth of House of Fraser vouchers, I knew my chances were slim, but I'm a glass half full kind of girl. The competition requirements? To pick out items from the House of Fraser website and blog about an outfit, beauty look, or room inspired by one of the following cities:

  • London
  • Paris
  • Milan
  • New York
  • Tokyo

Try and guess which city I've picked...

The city I have chosen has one of the most striking examples of street style in the world. With this city, one word comes to mind - which I can't disclose or it'll give the game away! - this word describes a particular district in the city noted for its street style consisting of bold colours, clashing prints and textures, and feminine touches of frills, bows and lace for a doll lolitta look. This is a city I'd love to visit one day.

My look:

Rucksack  //  Wedges //  Knee high socks  //  Blouse //  Skirt

What I love about the pieces I've picked:

I love all the splashes of colour - ranging from the salmon pink ribbon to the electric blue wedges. Heels worn with knee high socks or stockings is a personal favourite of mine and can instantly transform your look. These knee highs from House of Fraser are bamboo ones - so you just know they'd be amazingly soft on your skin. The skirt and blouse are not only cute, but excellent value for money (both less than £20 each!). The rucksack adds another splash of colour (and print!) to the look and I love the contrast of the blue with the chocolate coloured buckles / straps.

Have you guessed which city I based my look on?
