A day with Company Magazine & River Island!

 H&M Bowler Hat / H&M Jumper / H&M Shirt / H&M Skirt / New Look Tights.

Can you believe that this is my 100th post! Also, my wee blog will be 4 months old on the 10th of March; oh how time flies!
Yesterday, I made a very early trip to London. Being one of the lucky 4 winners of the Styled by you competition in association with River Island, I got the chance to style a photoshoot for Company Magazine's May Issue. Rosie (another winner) and myself spent the day with Company Fashion Team! You can only imagine our excitement! I went for a minimalistic look for the day, had a feeling it was going to be a long day and so being comfortable was essential. Donning an almost full H&M outfit and a pair of Peacocks flats, I was all set to catch my 5:55am train. This skirt for me is one of the best prints I've seen by H&M, I just adore it. The colour combinations are so rich and bright, practically perfect. The funny thing about this skirt though is that it has pockets! I only discovered that yesterday, like half way through the day. Then again, this was my first time wearing this skirt, I only bought it a few weeks ago; so I'm sure you can let me off this once.

It was way too early for me to eat so I had a fruit salad for breakfast on the train o London.  It tasted great, especially the strawberries, mhmm!
Rosie and I also had some photos snapped for the May Issue, it was nerve wrecking but everyone was so nice. For my look, I was wearing stonewashed River Island Dungarees and a text jumper. 

 Meet Rosie, fellow winner and Kitty the model:)

Some of the shooting was done in an East London Grocery store and then a studio. The theme of the shoots was Oriental fashion! Look at all those colours and prints, it was practically my dream wardrobe! Most of you already know that I am cookoo for brights colours and prints. Here are a few photos I snapped for you guys.

I have lots of  photos showing some of the Styling that went on BUT I am not going to put them up, you will just have to wait until Company Magazine's May Issue is released sometime in April, its a suprise:) There is a lot more to styling than I thought, it is not all that easy but now more than ever; I am determined to have a career in Styling. I am so glad to have been offered such a great experience and met some amazing people. Thank you Company Magazine, River Island & Company Magazine Fashion Team for having us!x

I hope you guys are having a lovely day! 
Are you looking forward to Company Magazine's May Issue?
