The Ultimo Styling Challenge.


Last week to celebrate the launch of the new Ultimo concession in Oxford Street's House of Fraser, Ultimo invited a few bloggers down for a styling challenge. I took Suze along with me before our bloggers dinner at The Gallery Mess (more on this tomorrow!), and we got to see the gorgeous new collection.


As well as seeing their new season lingerie collection, we were also treated to mini macarons, and a glass of freshly squeeze OJ (we avoided the bubbly as we knew we'd be getting plenty at the Gallery Mess dinner).






We then got measured by an Ultimo measuring specialist (and I discovered I've been buying bras a size too small...oops), were able to try some things on, and pick out an underwear set each to take home. We were asked to choose from a selection of clothing from House of Fraser to style up. The idea behind the styling was supposed to reflect the playfulness of the underwear, so showing off a little sneaky peak of the bra for example. I ignored this completely. I'm all for getting my boobs out, as a lot of you will know from past outfits...but not in the middle of House of Fraser. So here's my little conservative outfit...


I couldn't find the skirt anywhere on the HoF website :( sad times. There's a similar, shorter version here though. I'll try and find the one I wore though and update it here!



If you fancy seeing the new collection, Ultimo are hosting an event at the concession (on the 3rd floor of House of Fraser Oxford St) on Thursday 10th September 2015 at 7pm. Fashion expert Grace Woodward and celebrity stylist Frank Strachan will be answering questions live on stage, and you'll also be treated to champagne, 20% off all purchases over £35.00, and a gift with purchase!

  4. That skirt looks great on you - hope you manage to find it! Is it not something crazy like 70% of women buy the wrong size of bra?!

  11. That outfit is lovely, that skirt.. aah! I want it. Also very jealous of the macarons, I probably would have embarrassed myself immensely by shoving four hundred into my mouth. Delicious!!

  24. I totally agree with comments up there. You look fantastic in this skirt :) All composition is really good matched. I like people who with boring "black&white set" are doing something in fact interesting. Thanks!
