Studs, a bit of vintage and the Company Awards

I first saw these Topshop slipper studs on Clare a while ago and needed them in my life. I opted for the burgundy colour - perfectly suited to Autumn and love the gold studs on them. I actually wore this outfit last weekend but as usual, haven't had a chance to post it until now. To be honest I was a bit unsure about all the prints together but it's all about experimenting and clashing right? My fur belonged to my Mum's great Aunt, who passed it onto my Mum and then onto me. I love it and always seem to get alot of compliments.

Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that I also attended the Company Magazine Awards at Shoreditch House last week. Company is one of my favourite magazines and I think their fashion pages are amazing. Affordable and full of ideas and inspiration. I was attending on behalf of work had such a fun night. We drank Moscow Mules as Gemma Cairney presented the awards to high street brands. When I first arrived I noticed Pixie Lott and her (hot!) boyfriend walk past - she actually ended up winning an award for her range with Lipsy and as she walked through the crowd I asked for a photo. She was BEAUTIFUL. And made me feel like a toad (lol) but she seemed so nice and down to earth and happily posed for a snap.

I was actually papped for the Evans blog whilst at the awards. I've never had anything like that happen before so it was really lovely when their Social Media Co-ordinator approached me and complimented my outfit. I didn't think it would make it onto their blog, but yesterday I had a little peek and there I was!!  They were super lovely in how they described what I was wearing to and how it flattered my shape - so thank you Evans!

The Sparkling Shoe

For the 5th year running Dune is collaborating with the Teenage Cancer Trust to lauch the ultimate 'Sparkling' party shoe. This pink glitter bomb shell will be sure to turn some heads (see what I did there?!) during party season and add ultimate glamour to an LBD.

The shoe is priced at £90 with £50 of every shoe going towards the TCT and available in all Dune stores nationwide from November 11th.

From TCT:
Every day six teenagers are told they have cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust believes young people shouldn’t stop being teenagers just because they have cancer. So the charity builds units in NHS hospitals that offer young people specialist care, bringing them together so they can support each other in an environment suited to their needs.

As well as specialist units, Teenage Cancer Trust also funds a number of services all with the same goal – to help young people fight cancer. These include clinical and research staff, an education programme for schools, family support networks and an annual conference for young cancer patients in Nottingham.

Also, to celebrate the launch, Dune is running a competition on their Facebook and Twitter to win a pair of Sparkling Shoes signed by Nicola Roberts - get entering and start donating!
