OOTD | Cosmo Blog Awards 2013

Thursday, 26 September 2013




Hello ladies! As some of you may know, on Wednesday next week I will be heading over to the OXO Tower on South Bank for this year’s Cosmo Blog Awards! I’m super excited to get dressed up and see what Cosmo have put on for us, I’ve never been to anything like this before and I won’t get to go to something like this again so I’ve decided to go dressed up! As nobody will be around on the day of the event to take my OOTD photos, I have enlisted the help of my Mum, so this is just a picture of the dress I’m wearing. I will probably accessorize if differently on the day and my hair and nails will be done by La Durbin Salon before the event so I will look different to this. I will also have fake tanned so hopefully I won’t look as ghostly as this on the day of the event!

Also, this is my first OOTD so please be nice! I already know I’m a bit on the chubby side and I’m as white as a sheet, so no need to tell me in the comments! I don’t usually do these kinds of posts because I don’t want to get any nasty comments and also because my OOTD’s are usually just my jeans and a jumper that I’m wearing to work!

I got this dress from Lipsy and although it hasn’t come out that well in the photos, its a pretty pink nude colour and will hopefully look great with my spray tan. It has a sparkly silver band around the waist and then it puffs out into a bigger skirt so I think this will help to disguise my stomach and be more flattering on my figure.

I love the back of this dress too. It has crossover straps which then go into a pretty bow design (I love anything with bows) and then flares out into the skirt, which is longer at the back than the front. I’m not sure if this is too dressy for the Cosmo Awards but I decided to just wear what I want to and hopefully I won’t look too silly?

What do you think about this dress? It was so hard to know what to wear to this event but the invite said ‘dress to impress’ so hopefully that's what I’ve done! And I will of course be posting photos of the event and my hair, etc and what it actually looks like on the night.

    1. Thankyou! I love the back too but I don't usually go for things which are backless (kind-of anyway) so this is a bit different for me! xx
