round 3 - tweed


all ASOS except cardigan (UO) and hat (h&m)

unbelievably, i got through to round 3 of the ASOS future stylist competition! even more unbelievably, i was chosen to go through by the judges themselves, who said some really nice things about me. i really can't believe i've gotten this far, it's amazing.

the theme for round 3 was 'styled for 2011'. we had to pick a trend we thought would be big in 2011 and style ourselves with that trend. now, as you all read my blog you'll know i'm not one of those bloggers who follows fashion weeks, or buys the latest 'it' shoe, or gets hung up on current trends, so this was REALLY difficult for me! i didn't have much of a clue at all what trend was supposed to be big this year. in the end, i went for 'tweed' and sort of hoped for the best! (i'm aware this isn't doing much for my 'stylist' ambitions, as stylists are supposed to know all about trends, right?). since choosing my trend and ASOS items i've since read in magazines that i should really have chosen 70's, or neon brights, or maxi skirts.. but none of those are my sort of thing, so i wouldn't have been able to wear them properly.

thank you to everyone who voted to get me this far, i can't say how much it means to me to even be in this competition at all, let alone getting votes from you guys! but having said that.. it's time for me to ask you again to vote for me!

to able to vote you need to 'like' the ASOS page on facebook here, and then to 'like' my look, go here. thank you!

  7. I nearly bought some tweed shorts today but didn't think they'd fit quite right.. you've made me want to go back and try them on! I love this outfit, so English and French at the same time? Or is that just me (probably)? Good luck :) x

  9. Congratulations about getting for far in the competition! Don't worry about not following trends! I reckon that a good stylist knows good clothing which suits the person they style, not just how to follow recent trends x x

  11. It's so refreshing to see another blogger who doesn't follow trends. If I see an item of clothing I like I buy it, I mean I'm still wearing tops that are considered 'summer' under my jumpers at the moment. I don't set out to buy something just because it fits in with the trends of the season/year.

    The outfit looks lovely, I'm really into my shorts so this look is right up my street! I like how you've added a girly edge with the pink cardigan, its lovely.

    Well done in the compitition; you deserve it!

  12. Love this outfit! Those shorts are perfect and I love that you are so honest about your trend following. I don't follow them either, If I like something I don't care if it isn't 'in style' I will wear it anyway!

    Congratulations on getting so far!
