So you might remember a certain A/W13 trends blog post I did last month (Trend Report Autumn/Winter 2013). This post was spotted by the team at RSVP magazine who were running a competition in conjunction with Oasis Fashion to find the Style Blogger of the Year. I was one of the thirty finalists selected during September to take part in this competition, an achievement I am very proud of! We were all invited to a fantastic reception in Oasis, St. Stephens Green on October 10th where the winners were announced. Although I was not one of the winners I would like to extend a huge thank you to all my fashionista followers who voted for Bec Boop Fashionista World.

I dashed from work in office attire but nonetheless thankful to be able to make the event as I am based in the West of Ireland, it can be difficult to attend events in Dublin sometimes. My cousin Laura accompanied me and we entered the Oasis store to a red carpet entrance and friendly greeting from Jane Haynes who had co-ordinated the event. There were some tasty canapés and an endless supply of Corona Light to keep us refreshed as we browsed the new collection in-store. I was delighted to see some Galway bloggers there including Sinead Carroll of Yummy Mummy Fashion and Lifestyle blog and Orla Martyn from Beyond the Fashion. I also had the opportunity to meet Fiona Griffin from Style Resurrection and her lovely husband (unbeliveably cute couple alert!).
The event was hosted by TV3’s Deric O h’Artagáin and judged by Ian Galvin, chairman of Aurora Fashions, Debbie O’Donnell producer of TV3’s Xposé and RSVP Magazine online editor Jane Lundon. The deserving winners were announced as Nicola McLaughlin from Sequin Cinderella and Claire Jameson from Justified by Jemo. It was really entertaining to watch the winners participate in the styling challenge and ooooh over the looks they selected.
Thanks again to everyone who voted for me!
