FOR THE WIN!

OH MY GOODNESS BLOGGIES!! I have amazing news! Last week I bought Grazia magazine like I do most weeks and noticed a competition to win £5000 to spend on a new wardrobe at Net a Porter.com. I entered it as ususal (sucker for competitions like you wouldn't believe) and you'll never guess what.......


I ONLY WENT AND BLOOMIN' WON!

I know, RIGHT!? OK, so here's what happened.

I was working at The Herald today for work experience and when I finished I discovered I had a voicemail from a very cheery sounding Jo from Grazia magazine telling me I'd won the competition and to call her back ASAP! So, obviously when I'd calmed down CONSIDERABLY, I did just that and she confirmed it was true - I was going to get to choose a new wardrobe from the designer site to the value of 5 grand!

I'm expecting a call from someone from Net a Porter this week to let me know how it's all going to go down, but in the meantime I can't help but start to plan my picks...

These are a few of my favs...


 
Burberry tweed cocoon coat
ACNE sculpted boots




Burberry quilted leather jacket



Marc Jacobs cardigan





Vivienne Westwood Anglomania coat
 Alexander Wang Rocco leather bag
Alexander McQueen double wrap bracelet




Proenza Schouler long sleeved sequin top (picturing this with leather shorts and the ACNE boots... drool!)






Vivienne Westwood Anglomania dress


Miu Miu suede biker boots - cos every girl needs a good pair of bikers.



AHHHH! I can't actually get over this at all, honestly! It's like my dream, I'm so grateful! I picked these really quickly tonight but I'll have a wee while over Christmas to decide... any thoughts or recommendations?

Moral of this story? ENTER GRAZIA COMPETITIONS, PEEPS!

I'd buy bags/shoes/jewels over clothes because they'll stay classics.

OMG.

yay! Thanks peeps! Awesome suggestions Claire! My thinking was to get a few slightly cheaper things rather than one or two expensive things, but I think you've sold me on the McQueen cape/coat. Nearly £2000 but exquisite!! The Kane dress has sold out, but ima ask what the deal is with that. Think I'm defo solk on the Burberry coat and leather jacket so far... ahhhhh it's too HARD! xx
