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