* This competition has now closed – thanks to everyone who entered! *
The time has come for us to start thinking about the upcoming office parties, festive balls and the general celebrations that will undoubtedly occur in the run up to (dare we say it yet?!) Christmas…
What most of you will deem to be the most important part of these events is the outfit you will wear for them. Be it a sparkly dress for the work do, or an elegant maxi for a Christmas ball, you will be scouring the shops for THE dress to make an impression.
To help make the process a little easier (and to celebrate the excitement of winter fashion and party wear) at F&F Clothing we have decided to launch a competition with the help of five top fashion bloggers.
We have asked them to choose their favourite party wear dress from our festive edit and they will be going head to head to win your vote!
All you need to do is share your favourite look on Twitter or Tumblr to be in with a chance of winning one of 6 £50 F&F gift vouchers.
What’s more, if you are an avid reader of one of our selected bloggers, the winning blogger will also receive 5 £50 F&F gift vouchers to give away to her readers!
So click here to find out more about the bloggers and what they’ll be wearing this Christmas. Good luck and get voting!

If you’re looking for vintage-style 1950’s inspiration – possibly our favourite decade for fashion that flatters – then look no further than our blog of the week… Pocket Rocket Fashion!
Pocket Rocket Fashion is a hub of deliciously affordable fashion finds, collected by Lauren, the pocket-sized, curvy fashionista at the helm of the blog, Lauren founded her cute blog back in August 2009 when she decided to put all her fashion know-how to work to create Pocket Rocket Fashion.
We love Lauren’s eye for style and glamour, and her eye for simple touches that make all the difference to an outfit, like a kitsch themed brooch. Our favourite look is her amped up old-school Hollywood glamour outfit which teams elegant black lace with lavishly ruched floral textures in a way that screams demure goddess. This outfit would be perfect for weddings, the races, or a fun night out.

Happy Friday ladies!
We’ve had a super busy few days here at HQ (catch up on what we’ve been up to here!) so we’re looking forward to winding down this weekend! And what better way to start the weekend than a cup of tea and a good read of a fab clothing blog? This week we’re loving… My Sentimental Heart!
Sarah is the blogger at the helm of this super cute and girlie blog, and is a very clued up when it comes to fashion, style and beauty know-how! We love what she wore to our Autumn/Winter 2012 preview last week, and how she discusses simple issues like finding the perfect maxi-skirt to suit you, which I’m sure many of us can empathize with!
We love that she ‘loves cake (both the eating and the making of!), fashion, theatre, film and anything with flowers on,’ and she frequently updates her blog throughout the week so make sure you bookmark her blog to stay up to date!

Oh and she’s a firm lover of a good cup of tea, so be sure to pop the kettle on and indulge a la My Sentimental Heart!
Have a great weekend everyone! :)
Hello my lovelies!
Rain, rain, go away… I think its safe to say the weather has got us reaching for our wellies, jumpers and waterproofs this week! We’ve set up our April Showers edit on site with everything you need to keep you and your family puddle-proof! But it is Friday, so time to duck out of the rain and announce our blogger of the week… The Ramblings Of Mrs Bebe!
This fabulous blog was created by the lovely Becky Barnes, aka Mrs BeBe; a super stylish business woman who’s vintage mad, married and a mother of one.’ We love how she mixes affordable high street fashion with vintage finds and makes it oh-so-chic and on trend! Also if you find yourself in a bit of a struggle to wear an item differently, you should definitely check out her post on Dotty Dress 3 Ways for some style tips!
Mrs BeBe is a very busy lady. Not only does she run her popular blog singlehandedly, but she also likes to get other blogs involved in special features – such as the Plus Size Swimwear Challenge where she gets her blogger friends to road test different swimsuits to give readers a greater scope about what’s on offer. Spot on lady!
As well as fun and helpful features, she’s also curating Plus North 2012, a plus size blogger event showcasing lots of fantastic event – we say grab your tickets now so you don’t miss out!

Have a fab weekend ladies! x
Happy Friday guys! It’s nearly officially the weekend, which means it’s time to start debating our weekend outfits (this changeable weather is certainly keeping us on our toes).
Music is undoubtedly a huge genre that inspires the fashion industry, and with the annual celebration of ‘independent record store day’ this weekend, we’re checking out the best people to give us the low-down and fashion tips.
Our fave this week is ‘Quarter Life Tales of Annie Bean’.
Annie is a music and fashion blogging addict from the glorious Midlands who “loves tea parties, travel, running & being spontaneous!” Her blog lures you in with tales of outfit inspiration along with a sprinkling of her outdoor travels that will have you glued for hours.
A close follower of fashion, Annie takes key fashion trends and styles them in a way that is wearable and looks effortless for everyday wear. She also has this year’s summer style down to a T, wearing a Vintage Candy style floral dress paired with an oversized tan coloured handbag and a loosely disheveled up-do. So pretty!
We’re also impressed with how she pulls off what we like to call ‘cycle-chic.’ A keen fitness fanatic she doesn’t let this stop her looking stylish! We’re talking stylish cycle helmets (you heard us!) and covetable baskets to accessorize your bicycle.
As always don’t forget to follow her on Twitter over at @aggy84.
Have a lovely weekend ladies!
Happy Friday everyone! We can’t wait to get the weekend started, and if you’re anything like us, you’ll love hunting down outfit inspiration for your next clothes haul – and this week we’ve been glued to EmilinaLove.
At the helm of this insightful fashion blog is Emily Eleanor, a fab Creative Writing student from Birmingham with an obsession for all things grunge and vintage. Think Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen meets Alexa Chung glam grunge fashion.
As well as her fab fashion finds we also love how Emily puts together deceivingly affordable outfits that scream high-end British fashion, with inspiration from London’s East End and boutique fashion stores.
We especially love this glam outfit, which is a mixture of high street and online, with the faux fur coat from yours truly!
Be sure to add her blog to your reading list, and don’t forget to follow her on twitter!
Happy fantastic weekend everyone!
Have you been enjoying the recent sunny spell? We’re certainly loving the summer vibes, so what better way to celebrate the sun’s reappearance, than to spread the love to another fabulous blogger! This week, we’re loving I Want You To Know, a blog written by the lovely Kristabel.
We’ve actually been reading Kristabel’s blog for a while now, and even had to chance to meet her at London Fashion Week in February – so we thought it was about time that we featured her on our very own! Kristabel’s outfits are always so well thought out, and we’re envious of her knack for pulling them off effortlessly. We especially loved her outfit in ‘Saturday Southbank’ – the contrast between the tailored blazer and quirky skirt is gorgeous, and it’s definitely one for the style notes!
Another thing we love about Kristabel’s blog is her day to day account of London life – be it grabbing a spot of Dim Sum at Covent Garden or wondering the fascinating Portobello market – there’s always something there to get us inspired!
So why not grab a quiet spot in the sun to have a good read of Kristabel’s blog, and be sure to follow her on Twitter!
Hello and happy Friday to all our fab LifeStyled readers! Here are just a few things that have made us smile this week: the sun peeping his sleepy head from beneath the clouds, payday and following our favourite blogger this week: Not So Serious Fashion!
Gemma’s knack for on-trend affordable fashion for the plus size lady is spot on! We love how she gives a feminine outfit some oomph by layering a chunky knit over a floaty dress, and teams it with a chic biker jacket and opaques. We also particularly enjoy how she’s given an embellished headband another lease of life as a necklace!
Gemma’s blog blends fashion and accessory tips and finds, from high-street to thrift store, along with an infectiously bubbly personality, so be sure to check her out!
Have a happy weekend everyone! x
P.S. We’re craving the coconut macaroons she made. YUM!
Hello Friday! We can’t wait to meet this weekend head on. But first it’s time for our favourite part of the day, and we’re giving a big slice of Friday love to a blogger we’ve been reading constantly all week. This week, we’re loving Yummy Mummy’s Galore!
Rachel is the beauty behind this blog, and she features funky fashion combos that make us want to break out our inner flower child. We adore the winter fashions that she’s been posting lately because, despite the frigid weather, she makes the bright colours look vivid and alive. Sometimes she takes a single colour and highlights it with stunning results.
What’s amazing about Rachel’s blog is that her fashion choices are so versatile. Find yourself at the park, strutting your stuff on the streets or just getting coffee with friends, and she’s got the outfit for you.
Follow her on Twitter if you can’t get enough of her blog either!
Hello and a lovely Friday to everyone! It’s been absolutely freezing outside over the last week, but we’re cuddled up warm and cosy – thinking about the joys of summer holidays to distant beaches and sun filled days. So it’s only fitting to take a trip with our favourite blogger this week: Where Is Harriet.
Harriet’s eye for style is spot on. We adore her gorgeous photo-filled posts and her mixture of personal fashion finds and runway trends. We don’t have any idea where she finds the exotic backdrops for her photos, but we hope she keeps them coming!
Harriet has something for everyone’s taste: whether you love high fashion, travel, inspiration and fun personal challenges, or perhaps just a quick window into London life. We love travelling with her through all of these adventures!
Still dreaming of sunnier days? Be sure to follow Harriet on Twitter for a daily dose of warmth.
