Last week, instagram and twitter followers, had the first look at my Como Shopping Challenge adventure.

To celebrate, the recent refurbishment of The Como Hotel, and its prime position on the corner of one of Melbourne's most iconic shopping strips - Chapel Street, Friend in Fashion, along with a handful of other bloggers, were invited to partake in the Como Shopping Challenge.

Each blogger was given a budget of $500, a time limit of 2.5 hours and free reign of Chapel Street to shop a perfect, head to toe cocktail look.

Following a frantic afternoon of power shopping, we were invited back to the Como Hotel, pampered with champagne and strawberries, while the team at Miss Fox, transformed our hair and make up.

The evening concluding with canapes and couturier duo, J'Aton judging each blogger's final look.

After scouring each store, some more than once, I couldn't resist, embracing the pastel trend for the evening, settling on this incredible asymmetrical leather skirt, and mint silk camisole from Australian designer, White Suede.

Fiel Sol accessories and Tony Bianco sandals completed my look for the evening. 

Big thanks to the Como team, for a  beautifully luxe shopping, wining and dining experience.
