Denim Blogger Challenge with House of Fraser

Love them or hate them, blogging challenges are a great fun! House of Fraser has challenged bloggers to create an ultimate Denim look by putting together a selection of clothes to go with the Denim. Inspired by the Jazz Age and The Great Gatsby, I have picked a few items to imitate a visually dazzling ensemble.

For my pièce de résistance  I have chosen Ted Baker's Gerrie Deco print Denim. These skinny jeans could be a versatile starting point to create either a festive outift, or a casual look (still pretty chic and alluring).
This seductive True Decadence Deco Sequin Dress is short enough to be worn as a top with the skinny jeans, an absolutely delightful piece. As it is sleeveless, you can easily wear it with Biba Deco Bead Mesh Tipper which is a glorious piece of design, very Gatsbyesque thanks to its heavy embellishment highlights. It screams luxury (and a bit of decadence).
Dapper Office Lucy in the Sky court shoes feature an elegant metal toe detail, and are comfy for any dancing queen, while a Coast Deco necklace would complete this ensemble perfectly.

Biba Deco Illustration print tee is a stylish homage to the roaring 20s. It sports a trendy gold and sliver art deco print on the black background. It will easily transform any casual look into a festive one, and will add a touch of glamour to the Denim look. This is another great top that would look spectacular with the skinny jeans. This is a more casual look.
Accessorize it with a cloche hat, shoes and a fabulous Biba clutch. A timeless classic.
They say, many people watched Downton Abbey for the outfits and hats, and I cannot agree more. I was lusting after those fabulous hats. While browsing House of Fraser, I found it very difficult to limit myself to choosing just one hat. I love hats, can I pick at least two?
Dickins & Jones Embellished Cloche hat is simply marvellous. An an absolute steal at £35. Wear it, and you will look every inch a chic flapper.
Aftershock Lydia Black pointed high heels would look spectacular with this outfit.
Finally, a few more accessories to choose from...

Linea Bow Detail cloche is a less ornate hat of the two I have chosen. But then you can add as much sparkle as you want with the Untold Jade Stud Clutch bag, 1928 Silver Coil bracelet and Coast Deco earrings.

And that's it, I am ready to party.
