Camden Shopping - My Look magazine entry

Monday, 8 August 2011

So this is my Look magazine 'bloggers competition' entry. I would love the chance to sit front row at the A/W Look Show and blog about the fabulous clothes on show.

For my entry I wanted to do something a little bit different and something which really shows exactly who I am. I am very proud of what the UK high street has to offer and being able to watch the growth over the last 10 years of shops such as Topshop, Zara and H&M has been incredible. When I was in my early teens it took real skill to put together a 'trendy' outfit - girls nowadays have an overwhelming amount of options, as well as inspiring guidance from fashion magazines. The bulk of my clothes are bought from the UK High street stores, but what I think creates my individual style is my love for buying one-off pieces from markets such as Camden, which I add into my outfits. I like searching through racks of clothes only to find the most perfect dress that will last throughout the seasons. Mixing the two types of clothes together is exactly how I would sum up my style.

A while ago I found a small shop amongst all the stalls in Camden, which is run by some lovely girls. It is a treat for me to visit and as I always spend lots of money, I try to only go once a month. Every bag, every dress and every necklace is gorgeous.

As a little treat, I wanted to make a video taking you around Camden and to JJ Park - my favourite market shop.

I am very proud of my little blog and what it has become. It's my own space where I can come and share my writing and photos. I would love to blog for Look and I think I'd make a good representation of today's 'Look Girl'. 

Enjoy the video and I hope all my lovely readers think I would make a worthy winner! :-)



I love reading your comments so please let me know what you think of my entry. 

I hope you all had a great weekend!
