Rejoice in your finery

Last week I found out that I had won the Young British Designers First Birthday Competition! To enter, you had to choose your dream outfit from items available on the site and submit it through their Facebook page. I am so happy to have won, and I was really surprised I did (despite the fact I entered about 30 times!). My winning outfit was based on a soft palette, which the lovely folks at Young British Designers described as a "Nude Symphony". Apparently they're good with the words as well as spotting fashion talent!

My goodies arrived this morning and they are even more beautiful in fabric-y flesh! - check 'em out.

Dress: Gallery 4
Necklace: Cabinet
Shoes: Aksha Fernandez

As much as I love all of my goodies, I must say my favourite part is the Aksha Fernandez shoes. Look how beautiful they are - such intricate detail!

Not only are they stunning, but they're also insanely comfortable - a real rarity when it comes to heels. I can't wait to bust these bad boys out soon!

I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to Young British Designers for my amazing prizes. I feel like the luckiest girl in the whole world!


  1. Wow, they're so beautiful. You chose a really good outfit. I am particularly in love with the shoes!
