Christmas 2011: Festive Shoot With

It feels like a lifetime ago, but actually it was only a few weeks, I went on  my first photoshoot as Fashionista Barbie to model’s Christmas collection. It was a fab day where I was treated to picking out an outfit, a mini makeover, and then a fun photoshoot. I love that the Very team put together this cute lookbook of my best snaps.

I decided to go head-to-toe in Fearne Cotton, I have to admit it wasn’t intentionally I just really liked her collection. I completely adore this gorgeous Fearne Cotton maxi dress, I just love the ‘mullet’ gold sequinned hemline and the dramatic silhouette it created. I teamed it with these Fearne Cotton Indiana Lace-up Ankle Boots, mainly because they made my feet look tiny and I felt that this dress needed edgy footwear.

I was one of the first to get snapped, I think it was more nerves I just wanted to go first and then I was able to enjoy seeing everyone else getting ready. I adore what Laura from That’s So Yesterday wore – this dotty number is super cute, and it was so lovely to meet Claire from Rainbows & Fairydust, who after seeing her in those fab jeans has made me want a pair. It was also nice to catch up with Lois, AbiKristabel and Suzi.

The whole day was such a great idea, it was lovely of the Very team to invite me as one of their Christmas bloggers and I love my pictures. I also got to eat the biggest cake from Patisserie Valerie!!!!
