So about a month ago my favorite fashion blog (and online destination for general life advice) Manrepeller announced a competition in collaboration with H&M and Bloglovin. They wanted to find the breakout fashion blogger of the year and every fashion blogger was invited to participate. I felt a bit like Cinderella, lamenting to my make belief mouse friends that I really, really wanted to go to the ball - even though I'm not really a classic fashion blogger with daily outfits and such. But I AM passionate about fashion and this blog is here because I wanted to talk about fashion in a different way - from behind the scenes! From my point of view; about creating fashion and through interviews with my colleagues and you guys enlighten the fact that it is an artform, yes it is even a science and should HAVE that recognition...
So here goes! This is my entry to the ball, and even though I probably won't get to dance with the prince (Leandra) I am actually proud of myself for talking about this mission I am on out loud with you guys. Hope you like the outfit!

Ps: I've said it before but I have to say it again. Fashion bloggers taking their own portraits with the self timer: I ADMIRE YOU! The behind the scenes pics from the above shoot would have been hilarious! 😀
Heyy Sandra! This is so cute! Loving the H&M top and your design! I looked into the competition but unfortunately, time was tight 🙁
Many bloggers (including me) do #OOTD kinda blogging. But I see the direction you are going! The behind the scene blogging could really get designers and bloggers together! Take a picture of your behind-the-scene photo shoot for us! With the self timer and everything! Would be funny and cute to see! :p
Thanks Terry! Yeah I nearly didn’t make it, but it’s such a good idea from H&M & Bloglovin! I hope they bring it back next year 🙂 Yeah I do #ootd sometimes but I think fashion could be highlighted in a different way on blogs too. Haha yes that would be fun, but then I’d need another camera with self timer haha! 😉
