Fashion and lifestyle blogger Hayley Baldwin (abritishcocktail.wordpress.com) is the lucky winner of £500 Next vouchers in our latest blog competition Next’s Fabulous £500 – hosted by Grazia’s Fashion Blogger of the Year 2012 Sheree Millington.Whether bloggers were in love with our latest wedges collection or wanted to showcase the perfect workwear outfit, our Fabulous £500 competition encouraged them to show creative flair with moodboards, links, pictures and social platforms to tell everyone about why their style choices shine.
The overwhelming standard of blog entries with innovative uses of creative skills mixed with social media, ranged from “style on a budget outfits” to different ways to wear one type of dress. On selecting her post to win, Sheree Millington, of glitzngrime.com said: “I chose Hayley because I think her post really represented Next and showed great styling skills.”
Hayley’s winning post focused around one simple White Ponte Dress and was inspired by all things London. Styling her favourite pieces from our online fashion summer 2012 collection such as coral suede court shoes and a navy lace women’s jacket, she explained: “My selection is made from one dress because its versatility means you can wear it to any occasion by dressing it up or down. I gave my collection a London theme because this city has multiple personalities, and so does this dress; with a bit of styling, it will adapt to suit any occasion. Its white material is a blank canvas for you to splatter with colourful accessories.”
