Bloggers Fashion Challenge with Foyleside Shopping Centre for Culture Tech #1

I love being set a challenge. I'm super competitive. When I was contacted about taking part in a little fashion challenge in Foyleside Shopping Centre in the fantastic City of Cultre 2013, Derry/Londonderry to pick an outfit for Culture Tech week I was thrilled. What is Culture Tech I hear you ask? It's an festival of digital technology, media, music and art featuring over 150 events, 100+ speakers and over 100+ acts taking place in the City of Culture from the 9th-15th September. Make sure to check out for events! 

I'm Folyside rich!

Myself and my two fashion challengers, Laurina from One Year of Fashion Fasting and Caroline from The Red Dutchess will be attending events in the city of the 14th September and were asked by Foyleside Shopping Centre to pick something fabulous to wear for the day... but with one catch. One of us would get £50, one of us would get £100 and one of us would get £150. I'll not reveal what the other girls got but I managed to pick the £100 voucher which meant I was suitably sorted! I traveled up to Londonderry for the first time ever on the Translink train service from Mossley West to the City last week to pick my outfit. I even brought my Mum and Grandma who have also never experienced Derry/Londonderry. Foyleside Shopping Centre has amazing shops including a Topshop, H&M (fabulously organised), River Island, Next, Dorothy Perkins, Debenhams, Dunnes Stores....the list goes on!  I managed to pick my outfit in about an hour!

Orange, black... black & orange. PROBLEMS! 
But typical me... I managed to make 2 looks for the price of one.... a day outfit which transforms for night! I will reveal my full outfit after my day at Culture Tech but above are some of the things I tried on while in Foyleside Shopping Centre. Try and guess what I picked (orange and black are clearly my signature colours, along with posing like a tea-pot!). 

Stay tuned for part 2 and my return to the City of Culture!
