A few weeks ago, as I frantically skipped radio stations to avoid Justin Bieber (seriously, Radio1? At 7.55am?! On a MONDAY?!!), I stopped on an advert for Galaxy’s Style Hunt. They were looking for Britain’s most stylish sister, and most importantly – someone with a fashionable prowess that didn’t break the bank. As Little Bird is all about my fashion, not high fashion, I reckoned this competition had my name on it. And the trip to NYC and £5K prize swung it a bit, too.
I sent in a photo (from this post, actually. Hey, if it’s good enough for ASOS…) and promptly forgot about it. Until yesterday, when I got a phone call from a VERY EXCITED LOCAL DJ!!!! who told me I’d been shortlisted and was in the top 20 for the Yorkshire region. Yikes!!
On Sunday I’ll be visiting the Galaxy studios for an interview and photoshoot. What concerns me most isn’t what to wear (I’m hoping you’ll help me out there) but the fact that my voice sounds seriously mannish when recorded. I feel this alone will scupper my chances! So I’ve been practising my interview technique and buying new shoes. Ooops.
I’ve got to wear my most stylish casual outfit (I think I’m good here – casual is my bag) and my most fabulous going out outfit (bit worried about this… my going out outfits are my casual outfits with heels!). After Sunday two girls will be chosen from Yorkshire, along with two girls from the other regions Galaxy goes out to. The 12 finalists will then be stuck under the ever-critical nose of the general public for a vote.
So, dear followers. It’s time to girdle your loins and help me pick two outfits to WOW them! I’m imagining an X Factor style public humiliation-type setting, so let’s make them winners. Take a look at a few past looks that you’ve loved…
All good, but all casual! Bugger it! So tell me, my friends – what shall I wear? Have I already rocked the perfect outfit, or should I go for something new? I know I want to stick to my usual brand of girly retro style, but other than that I’m open to ideas and would love to know what you think. Somehow I don’t think today’s outfit will cut it…
Thrifted mac, H&M jeans, thrifted camisole, Gap tee, thrifted bag, Converse hi-tops, Eclectic Eccentricity necklace
