Up For the Challenge


You know me, where there is a challenge you'll find me there, except, the marathon bungee jumping or skydiving. Ok I'll retract and rephrase. Wherever there is a FASHION CHALLENGE you'll find me there. So last week that's exactly what I did. I responded to a Fashion Challenge on Twitter by a lounge wear brand called Cybele, owned by Naturana. The idea was to do a 7 day challenge wearing their loungewear as day wear and posting our new outfits everyday and getting people to vote.

They sent me and three other bloggers a gorgeous pink box which contained 8 pieces of Lounge/night wear and from there the challenge was on. Here are my looks from Monday 16th - Sunday 22nd April:

Monday Look

For this look I teamed together the Cybele Blue bodysuit with lace detail with a striped midi body con pencil skirt, red and zebra print peep toe shoes and the option of a denim shirt that could be tied up. You know your girl I never do basic! This outfit could be worn as work or day wear. Why not try it out in your own style?

Tuesday Look

This look was inspired by Rihanna. Remember when she wore an oversized shirt and put a mini over it and the shirt was tailing below the skirt? Well, this lounge dress was my take on her look with a black faux leather mini, suedette shoe boots and a bomber. You can change up this look for work wear with a simple blazer. This look transcends edgy, street and work wear just depends on how you wear it!

Wednesday Look

Its festival time, and how best to dress this vest and shorts night set than with a mesh dress on top teamed with a faux leather jacket and platform patent shoes, but you can take this festival look as fas as you like and why not? There's no limit to fashion! Party on people!

Thursday Look

Floral Thursday: This nightdress needed a little bit of help, and you all know how much I love my midi pale pink skirt! So I decided to wear this nightdress as a top with nude patent platforms and khaki coloured jacket. This is my more demure look after Festival Wednesday had it all on show :-) Again this look can be dressed up with heels or a neutral cropped jacket the splash of colour gives a nice balance to the neutrals.

Friday Look

This is my Michael Jackson inspired look from both the 'Black & White' and 'Dirty Diana' video's. I love to give a bit of sass and edge so I decided to mix the Cybele silver vest with a white shirt I deliberately mis-buttoned, teamed with faux leather pants and open toe boots and geometric necklace for a splash of colour. Go rock it! Change the colours, add more, but have fun with it always!

Saturday Look

For this relaxed jumpsuit, I could have easily have thrown a t-shirt or vest underneath, but since as its spring, I decided to wear my off the shoulder floral bodysuit with silver belt and block heeled boots. But If you did want to team it with a shirt for workwear or a bra let for a night out, the options are endless. I have to say though, this jumpsuit is lush...

Sunday Look

My final look was to dress this pretty nightdress. Now pink, as much as I like this colour, it's not always my friend but this one is really pretty. Teamed with a brown check blazer, ripped pale grey jeans and nude heels accessorised with a floral and pearl necklace plus grey chain bag, to me is pastel perfection.

Conclusion

In the end this challenge was brilliant. It made me think out the box even more, as these additional pieces are both nightwear /loungewear; clothing you would wear around the house or to bed. Can you imagine looking at your silk nighty and pairing it with trousers or a skirt. Or your shorts set as a party wear (for the brave)? Either way it's something I will tell you time and time again - Fashion is fun, limitless and experimental...

In any case, thank you so much in advance. Hope you liked my take on the challenge, and I hope it inspires you to try them out yourself!
