I was both shocked and thrilled to be a finalist in the V By Very Irish Blog Awards for the second year in a row. I’ll try not to bore ye with my ramblings again but if you fancy it you can read last years post here. How was that a year alread?
As a finalist in the fashion category i was dressed by the award sponsors and my faves Littlewoods Ireland. Head to toe in V By Very. As always the choice was nearly too much that i struggled. The theme of the awards night was Movie Icons so i decided to go in the Hollywood Glamour direction. I chose this red prom dress with lace detailing. The dress is available in sizes 8-24 which is amazing. When going through my options i like to put the pieces together to see how they work when styled. The below is my final choice and the look i went with. I know it is a lot of effort but i do enjoy it.
I got a few questions about the fit of the dress after i posted pics up the other night. With relation to the fit , i actually did size up as i saw in the description online that the dress had a zip and a fixed waistband. Whenever i see this i know there wouldn’t be any stretch and not much room for manouver. Zips in general make me size up. It was a comfy fit in the end so i am glad that i went with the bigger size. I think this would be a good option for a winter wedding or a Cristmas party.
Here is a look at the lace back also which i don’t think i showed. Wish i had fixed the underskirt after sitting because i look like i have a hungry bum here lol. That is the end of the award spam i promise.
I just want to say a quick thank you for all the amazing comments and messages about the awards last night. A win wasn’t for me but i had a great night with the mammy and sister. I got to chat to so many of my blogging pals and met some new ones too. It was so nice to catch up with my fab Littlewoods Ireland family also. I can’t thank them enough for dressing me for the occasion and always being so bloody lovely to me.
It’s not about awards, numbers or money for me. Blogging has been a second chance for me and one i am grateful for everyday. Every event i attend or collaboration i get to work on make me the happiest girl in the world. I will be here for as long you lot allow me. Hopefully i will continue to spread what i truly believe and that is that fashion really is for everyone. To be a finalist two years in a row is unbelieveable to me. A little boost that maybe i am doing something right that my writing and work has been recognised. Again thanks so much for the constant support and chats. Here’s to next year.
* Littlewoods Ireland kindly dressed me tonight. I was under no obligation by the brand to blog this and i always choose any pieces i receive. As ever i only post about things and brands that i truly love and trust.
