Aussie Competition

Posted on: 22 November 2009

So for the last couple of months, hair brand Aussie have been running their Aussie Angels campaign and really having some fun with bloggers.

You may have noticed this competition running on some other UK blogs with the prospect of an amazing prize for both the winning blogger and a lucky reader. This is actually the first competition to feature on this blog and it's quite exciting. The challenge is to come up with an outfit that best describes Aussie and can be whatever interpretation you like.

As it's a competition I decided to have a little fun with the photos and return to the days when I used to collage most of my outfits and bring a bit of Art into the mix too.

Aussie shampoos have a yummy scents ranging from a fruity to a bubblegummy scent. I think the brand is quite quirky so what better than to have a fun, colourful outfit set against the quirky art of Yayoi Kusama?
Yayoi Kusama, Dots Obsession, 2000
Cardi, Hair band (Oasis) Dress (River Island) Belt (Vintage) Tights (Topshop) Shoes (H&M)
However, I think I think Aussie can also be a bit more sophisticated and edgy...so out came that iconic Christopher Kane for Topshop dress set against the moody painting of Rothko. I love this dress!

Blazer, clutch (Zara) Dress (C.Kane for Topshop) Leggings (Topshop), Shoes (KG)
But it's not just down to me, you guys can get in on the act too and get the chance to win a prize! So think up some outfits, take some photos, collage, make a video, write a song etc. I'm not fussed what kind of entry you send me!

The deadline is actually quite soon (completely my fault for being slow with this competition) and is this Friday 30th November. I'll post up all the entries and choose the lucky winner. Please don't forget to tell me the name of your blog and send your entries to...
diamondcanopywinn@hotmail.com
Good Luck!

>>Update! As far as I know, the competition is open to everyone and not just limited to the UK!

>> Update! I've not had a single entry yet. I doubt my entry would win because I am competing against lots of great bloggers...but if I did then any entries on here would have a high chance of winning a prize too. So go doooo it (^_^) please? Theres only 2 days left! xx
