Fashion Getaways Blogger Challenge With House Of Fraser

When I heard that House of Fraser were running a Blogger competition to put together an outfit inspired by one of the most iconic fashion capitals I thought it would be fun to create an entry, also who wouldn't want to win a £200 House of Fraser voucher?

All you have to do is go to their site and create an outfit inspired by one of the following cities: London, Paris, Milan, New York or Tokyo and explain what you love about of the items. Then ask your readers to guess which city you've chosen.

Chanel Pirate Lipstick, £25
The outfit I've chosen is quite monochromatic so I wanted to add a bright red lip to make this daytime outfit a bit more special. Chanel Pirate is the perfect glamorous shade of red. 

Therapy Spot Woven Dress, £45
I chose this Therapy dress because it's a great price point and it's so versatile. It can be worn with tights, brogues and a trench coat (as shown above) during the day if it's a bit cold, with sandals for the warmer weather or with some classic black heels and a blazer for dinner or drinks in the evening. 

Office Lottie Shoes, £62
These brogues are perfect for wearing during the day as the stacked heel makes them more comfortable for walking around in. The cut-out is really on trend at the moment and makes them a little bit more modern and different than your usual pair of brogues.

Zatchels Barrel Cross Body Bag, £45
This black bag is perfect for sightseeing in any country, it's cross body so it's more secure and can fit just the right amount in it so that you're not weighed down. 

Cutie Trench Coat, £35
Trench coats are a great way to layer up in colder weather without feeling too bulky. This one is a little bit of a twist on the classic trench coat because of the cute layered skirt which also gives a great shape.

Libertine Yellow Gold Thorn Ring, £25
I wanted to keep the outfit quite simple and not add much jewellery. This gorgeous Libertine ring is a nice statement piece that adds some interest to the monochromatic outfit. 

You can't be without a pair of sheer black tights when the weather is a bit chilly. These will look great against the pale shades of the dress and the trench coat.

You can find out all of the details on the House of Fraser Blog

So have you figured it out which city have I chosen? Let me know in a comment below!

Don't forget to tell me if you decide to enter the competition too so I can take a look at your outfit.
