House of Fraser Style Challenge

House of Fraser Dress Up Jacket Necklace Dress Tights Bag Sunglasses Shoes

Never one to do anything by halves, when I saw a blog post from House of Fraser asking bloggers to pull together a key look for next season, I sensed a challenge afoot. Rather than simply listing the items, I saw an opportunity to be a little bit more creative.

After some quick brainstorming I decided to create a paper doll that I could style with my favourite items from House of Fraser. I have fond memories of paper dolls as my first foray into the world of fashion. Long before I was sewing clothes for Barbie and Sindy, I was carefully cutting out outfits to style my flimsy friends.

So what better way to create some fashion nostalgia than turning several great buys into clothes for a (very stylish) paper doll?

I’ve gone for a winter sunshine look; teaming a Whistles leather jacket with Wolford opaques, a French Connection dress, fabulous Miu Miu sunglasses, a beaded necklace from Mint Velvet, suede ankle boots from Steve Madden and a new season Biba bag.

Here she is wearing her outfit; I think you’ll agree this is one chic paper doll.

Should you wish to download my doll to use as a negotiating tool for convincing your boyfriend/partner/spouse that new season clothes are vital as they can successfully make a paper doll look good, then you can by clicking here.

I knew an A-Level in Art would benefit me one day...
