I've been branded!

Denims are probably one of my least favourite things to wear. I have to admit, sometimes its simply just too casual-chic when I want to dress up in a romantic manner or something a little offbeat and kooky. Not only that, but I have more skinny denims than anything, and after months of wearing dresses and tights and shorts having skinny denims cling so close to my calves is an odd feeling.

But despite my own aversion to denim, I took up a challenge where I had to style myself into a pair of jeans.

So I entered Painfully Hip's little side-contest for the Lucky Magazine Denim Makeover Challenge, and the most awesome webmistress Amber chose me as one of the winners for a $250 goodie bag with lots of misc. beauty products and even tic-tacs! So I giddily present my badge of honor Amber has given me....



and present to you the outfit (that I'm frankly surprised did as well as it did! Thank you so much Amber! ♪)

You look fabulous! I'm not surprised you were a winner. I love the dash of colour in form of your yellow scarf.

Ah I relate to this! You do however look brilliant in denim, therefore perhaps you should wear it more often!
