Hello lovelies! This challenge is 'Emulate Another Blogger's Style' and was chosen by Rebecca (of The Plus Side of Me) who wrote: "I know it's best sometimes to keep things simple, but I've recently been thinking about how fun it would be to emulate another blogger's style that is very much so out of our comfort zone. It could be a blogger within or outside of the the OMCZ group, but I know there are plenty of bloggers out there whose style I love but have not dared to wear."
This sounded very exciting to me, but also a big challenge! I struggled to think of a blogger who's style would be outside of my comfort zone but also that I could do justice to (and find things for in my wardrobe, of course); I couldn't, so I decided to focus more on bloggers whose style I admire and that differs to my own. I had a few ideas and chose to emulate Sarah of Sarah Smiles. Sarah is a true retro beauty and, not having the latest fashions to hand, I decided to focus more on her hair and make-up style than fashion.

Mine isn't quite as glamorous, but for my first attempt at victory rolls I'm quite impressed (I google'd for a tutorial, there are loads of them!). I used my Soap & Glory eyeliner pen and MUA lipstick (Shade #1) to complete the look.

Unfortunately I didn't have my photography assistant (AKA the flatmate) or my mini tripod to hand and thus the photographs aren't that great I'm afraid. In hindsignt, I was in a bit of a rush and should've accessorised; just a wide waist belt would've finished off this look perfectly. I (almost) always wear a cardigan and tights (or leggings) and not doing so was definately outside of my comfort zone; I think I'd consider showing a bit more skin more often if it wasn't for the weather! The dress is from Dorothy Perkins a good few years ago and the shoes are the Wide Fit Black Suedette Low Wedges from New Look (£14.99, sizes 3-8). I'll definately be doing Sarah's hair and make-up look again but I don't think this dress was the right choice.
