What on earth am I going to wear to the Style Blogger Awards?

I’m stuck.

I’m so lucky to have been invited to the Company Magazine Style Blogger Awards ceremony at the end of May and when my invite arrived, I excitedly RSVP’d and booked my train tickets to get to London to enjoy an evening of glamour hosted by New Look. Then it dawned on me… I actually have to go – and I have no idea of what to wear.

I emailed Company magazine to enquire about the dress code, and here’s what they said; “Dress code is fairly dressy, say what you might wear to a bar for a drink with friends.” This throws some light on the subject, and I’m fairly sure that I can’t go wrong by wearing a dress and heels, or can I? 

But this is a STYLE blogger awards event and I know that all of the fabulous fashion bloggers always look amazing – I read their blogs and swoon over their amazing style daily! But I feel like I’ve kind of snuck in the back door of the Style Blogger Awards because I was nominated as a thrifty blog, and I’m not the most trend-led person at the best of times. So I’m finding it tough to choose something to wear, and really can I uphold my thrifty blog credentials if I go out and buy something new?! hmm.. it’s a real head scratcher.

Some of the other amazing shortlisted bloggers have already tweeted their gorgeous outfits, which is giving me a bit of an insight into their level of dressiness and what I can get away with – I mean, I don’t want to turn up in a prom gown while everyone else is in casual tea-dresses, or vice versa. My little sister is going to her high school prom this week, and I’m helping her get ready for it, but I never imagined that I too would be having that same ‘what-do-I-wear?” dilemma again at my age!

Please, please do get in touch if you have any ideas of what I should do or would like to lend me anything 😉 including a sense of style!

  1. I know you’ll look fab whatever you decided. I think there are sneaky ways you can glam up or dress down your outfit appropriate to the feel of the event.
    As the setting is east London or the trendy part of town ( as I like to refer to it being south of the river) where vintage and thrift rules. Also where the venue is, is a cobbled street. Therefore I’d go for a glam dress with a slight swishy skirt, belt, simple braclet and some funky vintagey style shoes. Team with a jacket over the top to tone it down. So if it’glam you can whip off the jacket and hey presto glam Cassiefairy!!
