Reach for the Stars...

Monday, December 12, 2011

Ive just realised my blog title is also an S Club 7 song, and instead of changing it Im embracing the naffness cos back in the day S Club were pretty awesome.. come on who doesn't know the dance moves for reach for the stars? OK Im rambling yet again, its time for another Take Ten challenge!

This challenge was courtesy of House of Fraser and had a twist, the challenge was dress for a Christmas Party. Now usually with these challenges we work with a brand and all ten of us agree on a piece to style. Not this time! This time we would all wear different dresses and HoF would pick them for us! So we had no idea what dress we were getting until it arrived with the postman.
The dress they picked suits me to a T, I love the aqua colour, the chiffon sheer fabric, the peter pan collar and long sleeve.

Dress: Therapy c/o House of Fraser, Tights and heels: M&S, necklace: Accesorize, Headband c/o Crown & Glory.
I styled my dress with some lacy tights, glitter heels, a glitter head band and nipped in the waist with some black ribbon.

Be sure to check out how the other Take Ten girls and see what dresses HoF picked for them! Jen, Mj, Sabine, Sarah, Sherin Paula, Harriet, Susie unfortunately Ellie had problems with her dress so she will be posting later.

Did you notice I no longer have ombre two tone hair? I had my coloured last week and decided to get it coloured all one shade of rusty orange... I loved the blonde underneath but I found it dried my hair out and it tangled so much more easily. So for now & cos I love to change my hair shades constantly Im gonna stick with just red tones.

    I'll always remember performing that routine at my old school talent show. Back in the days when 7 girls could wear matching jeans and denim jackets and still look good. *nostalgia*

    That dress is gorgeous and looks so pretty against your hair colour! :) xxx

  27. I love the dress! It really suits you, especially your gorgeous hair! Green tones with red tones always look so good! I wish I had red hair, but instead I actually dye mine red! But love it. Shame about Ellie though.
