Bloglovin, H&M Announced The 5 Finalists for 2016 Breakthrough Fashion Blogger of the Year Award!

27 Jul

Wow, what a long blog title!

This June, I have decided to up my game a little bit and came up with a series of photoshoots to participate in H&M’s Breakthrough Fashion Blogger of the Year competition.

I put on my thinking cap and tried to style my outfits a little bit differently from my usual ways. I took out all my H&M fashion apparels and worked out the most interesting combinations. I spent time discussing with the make up artist and photographer about the concept and persona I want to express through my pictures.

And here is one of my entries (another one is The Futuristic Siren) for the competition.

Sahara Princess

Very mysterious. In a faraway land where there is little or no rain, grows a magically beautiful flower. Sands and scorching sun could not hide her whimsical sense. She is fearless about future and her optimistic outlook of life is ready to make a difference in the world.

I mixed and matched a Ushanka-hat with a oversized-printed-blazer (from H&M) and a layered-tutu-tea-dress with boots and lots of accessories.

This combination turned out to be really whimsical and fun!

(I even pinned a peacock brooch with fancy stones in my hat if you notice.)

Well, then I was so anticipated for the results after I submitted my entry. I mean, entering competition really makes you nervous in a way or another right? Especially when it is such a prestigious competition open for all fashion blogger over the world. OMG~

And the wait is finally over, H&M and Bloglovin announced the 5 nominees for 2016 Breakthrough Fashion Blogger of the Year Award. You can read about it HERE. And guess what,

I was not in the list.

I didn’t get picked for the award.

Ya I know it kinda sucks when you didn’t get the things you want so badly. But it’s okay for I know I have put in my best and worked hard to make it happen.

In the list or not, I have made my own literary breakthrough today.
