Newcastle Fashion Week: Charity Shop Challenge

Ok, so I know I said I would be away for a while, and I still am (had an exam this morning and one tomorrow afternoon!), but I just wanted to pop in and say hi, and let you all know some exciting news!!

So you might remember I told you I was chosen to be one of five contestants in the Newcastle Fashion Week Charity Shop Challenge? So that happened on Saturday and my mum, my sister, my grandma and 2 of my aunties came up to watch. So in less than an hour, I had to find an outfit made entirely of clothes from charity shops for only £15, and above is the completed outfit, and, *cough* it’s the winner’s photo =D
Yes, I won!! I was so happy!! I got all sorts of lovely prizes, a £50 voucher, free haircut, free wardrobe consultancy, 3 months supply of Vitamin Water, and some Newcastle Fashion Week official briefs (!) and T shirt signed by Scott Henshall!!
I do have quite a few other pictures, taken by Ben and my mum, and my sister, who was my official photographer from the day! I’ll put them up another day because I have so much revision to do, but Beth got some pretty good photos! The one above is from the official photographer at the event =)
So that’s that! And I’ll be back soon with more photos from that, wish me luck in the exams!!

    Congrats Sian! Plus you look absolutely adorable, as always. That skirt is to die for… I kind of want to clone it / steal it from you!
