I am beyond thrilled to announce that Penny and Polaroids won an award for Best Fashion Blog in OohLaLa Magazine’s Blog Awards on Tuesday night. I am sure many of you already know this from the abundance of pictures on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I had such an amazing night at the awards and I was so excited just to be nominated. I was initially so overwhelmed and shocked to be nominated amongst Ireland’s top bloggers. Penny and Polaroids is still in it’s first year and as many of you will know developing a substantial following for a blog takes years and I had never expected to be awarded at such an early stage, if at all. I had an absolutely amazing night filled with pride, French martinis, some great stylish company and style aplenty. I would like to thank OohLaLa Magazine for awarding me with such a prestigious award, and a huge thank you to the magazine’s fantastic editor Fiona Masterson. Also, I would like to thank all my readers, both old and new. I awoke on Wednesday morning with a crazy amount of new followers, particularly on Facebook, so thank you to everyone for all the comments, likes and shares, it means so much to me.
For the awards I opted for a very classic and simple white crepe dress form Topshop. I adore this dress so much so it seemed like the perfect choice for the awards. It’s made from beautifully cut crepe material and it hangs perfectly. I have a penchant for white and for events like this I always want to stay true to my personal style and be comfortable in what I wear. I adore the silhouette of the dress and loved it the moment I put it on. I believe the dress is quite classic and as it was for an awards I opted for elegant heels and chose these on trend nude sandals from Zara. I love the simplicity of both the dress and the heels. To add some colour I chose this suede and leather contrast material teal oversized clutch from Topshop, and finished the outfit with gold jewellery aplenty. You can also see a close up shot of my new adored Michael Kors which I received from Stiofán a few weeks ago. It’s so beautiful, it was such an amazing gift. I also picked up the cute belt bangle in Topshop the day of the awards, I have wanted one for ages.
Below is a picture of Stiofán and I after I won, it was a very happy and proud moment. Be sure to like Penny and Polaroids on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see all the pictures from the party and what all the other fabulous bloggers wore.
Until next time..
