When I started A Little Bird Told Me, of course I had the pages of a national women’s magazine in mind. So my appearance in Company Magazine (as part of the fabulous Take 10) came as no surprise.
All the Take 10 girls were giddy with excitement when we were asked to take part in a special LBD challenge for Company’s December issue. Blogging brings with it some fantastic opportunities, but when we started this project I don’t think any of us thought we’d get into the glossies. But here we are!
Company sent us a simple ASOS black dress – a perfect blank canvas for our styling skills (as I said in my ‘official interview’). It should’ve been the easiest challenge ever, but the pressure of being in print brought on sartorial panic and I lost my head a bit…
I like to call this method of getting dressed the ‘throw-on-the-entire-contents-of-your-wardrobe’. When it comes to evening outfits I prefer simple, understated pieces mixed with blingy accessories, but it all looked a little flat. So I added the faux fur stole and the pink socks – hardly the simple, understated look I was going for, but cute, fun and good enough for Company.
Here’s how my homegirls styled the LBD…
Lookin’ good, ladies!
What do you think of challenge 17 and our Company Mag spread – did we do good?
