Style Compare Style Challenge : Metallics

On Monday I mentioned I had a few exciting things in the pipeline with my blog, and the first of which is this style challenge post which I have been itching to write about. It's always the case with these hush-hush projects that I want to shout about them but can't until a certain date haha!

All the same, a month or so ago I was asked by Style Compare to take part in a style challenge featuring the theme "Metallics"! They'd seen some outfit shots I'd done in the past, namely THOSE gold shoes, and thought I'd fit the bill, and so here is my interpretation of the theme. You'll have to excuse the sickeningly summery ensemble - these snaps were taken at the height of our heatwave a few weeks ago.

Silver metallic dress - Topshop via Style Compare
Pastel blue sleeveless shirt - Ark
Metallic blue shoes - ASOS

Even though the dress itself was the item to be styled around, I couldn't help but go for a glittery double whammy and bring out the alter-ego Dorothy shoes that have been sitting in my wardrobe since forever. I hope you like my interpretation of the "metallics" trend, granted it isn't formulaic and I could pass off for a five-year-old, but ten points for personality, right?

It would warm my cockles if you could spare the time to check out my entry in full along with the other style bloggers (who have also done an enviably good job!) by clicking here, and of course if you feel so inclined a vote would be lovely too! The winner gets a hefty prize for their readers too, so you never know, the odds could be well in your favour! 

Thankyou to Style Compare for asking me to be a part of this style challenge, and once again click here to see all four bloggers interpreting the "metallic trend" in our own way!
