You guys, I only went and won the Oxfam competition! You are now looking at the face of the 1960s. Thank you so much for all of your kind comments on my post, I had a few people asking if they could vote for me but it was all down to the judge, Victoria Moss, to decide and luckily for me she thought I deserved to win.
I had to travel up to Leeds for the photo shoot which saw me getting up at some god awful hour on a Saturday to catch a train from Kings Cross. Let's just say I am not a morning person!
The shoot was taking place at the Oxfam hub in Batley, which is the home of the Oxfam Online Shop. Myself and my fellow bloggers got very excited at being able to wander round the vast warehouse looking at all the clothes, I even came home with a bit of crimplene.
For the shoot I got to wear an amazing Emanuel Ungaro orange, cream and black abstract dress which I teamed with my 1960s cream loafers. The dress had a gorgeous orange underskirt but we pinned this up to make the dress look more mid-60s. I was a little nervous as I haven't done this sort of thing before but everyone was lovely and the pictures turned out great so I needn't have worried! The photographer was Mario Testino's former first assistant, Fashion and Portrait photographer Benjamin Tietge and hair and makeup was by Andrew Williams and Nadia Avent from Nicky Clarke and celebrity make-up artist Rosie Lewis.
It was great to hang out with the other winners, Nora of Nora Finds was the winner for the 50s, Leigh of Fox & Feather was 70s and Kristin of tights camera action was the winner for the 80s. Check out our group shot and video below
