William Tempest for River Island Sequin Shirt Dress / Moxham Anubis Necklace / Topshop Premium Boots

A few weeks ago I was invited down to SNAP Studios in London to take part in More Magazine’s ‘How Would You Wear…’ feature, in which 5 girls each have to style the same item with only pieces from their own wardrobes. This week the issue finally come out & so I thought I’d share it & a few behind the scenes images we took too.

Firstly, the item we were challenged to style was this beautiful William Tempest for River Island shirt dress, I didn’t want to take it off again! I’ve had my eye on this collaboration since I first heard about it, so it was great to get to see pieces from it in the flesh before it’s release. It’s much nicer quality than I expected, the sequins are very securely stitched on & the chiffon base is light, but with a nice weight too & nowhere near as see through as the photos make it look! I decided to keep it simple & let the dress really shine, as the 3 girls who had already been had made it quite casual & dressed down.

I was told before we got there that the editor liked ‘huge toothy smiles’ for the feature & this absolutely terrified me! I’m not much of a smiler & I hate smiling with teeth, so I was super nervous when it came to my turn. I shouldn’t have worried though, the team were really lovely & helped me feel much less awkward about it all, we had a good laugh about them having to force a huge smile out of me! I did feel a little bad for them, I tried so many times to just get away with ‘little smiles’ & it must have been like trying to squeeze blood from a stone getting this huge smile out of me! I always find it funny how people are surprised about how shy I am in front of a camera, I guess they expect that someone who takes photos of themselves in the middle of the street & then posts them on the internet would be super confident, but that’s not the case at all! I don’t think I’m the only one like this either?

I also had the chance to meet the lovely Robyn who was there too, shooting a jeans look for the issue before this one. It’s always so nice to get to meet other bloggers at things like this & it was great to have a good chat with her & hear that she also shared my nerves about putting on a huge smile for the camera!

The photo used is not one I’d personally pick of myself, but that’s purely because I’m not used to the big smile, I always feel I look a little creepy when I smile this huge & I joke that this is my ‘serial killer’ smile because of that! Either way though, I always think it’s important to do things outside of your comfort zone & I’m glad I went along as it turned out to be a really fun experience.
