Company Style Blogger Awards

Suppose we took one magazine, one-hundred-and-something style conscious bloggers, copious quantities of free booze, and an unassuming warehouse in sunny East London. VoilĂ ! Welcome to the Company Magazine Style Blogger Awards, where there are as many DSLR cameras as there are high heels.

Having been shortlisted for "Best Male Blogger" in this year's awards, I was delighted to receive my invitation to The Oval Space in Bethnal Green for the prestigious awards party. Tucked away next to the district's iconic gas works, the event space held a striking antithesis to the colourful parade of guests filtering through its doors, resplendent in bow ties, flower crowns, suits and snazzy dresses. It was a street style photographer's paradise.

I wasn't overly fussed about winning or losing; I just love any excuse to dress up, have a few drinks, and dance my socks off. With the bright-haired Zoe London playing plenty of Justin Timberlake, I was the first on the dancefloor, but it took much persistence and Blu Cantrell's "Breathe" to finally persuade my blogger pals to join me in some body popping.

The best part of my evening was spent with the beautiful Jo and Victoria of She and Hem fame, who were nominated for "Best Blogger Duo". Not only are these lovely Bristolian ladies two of the most stylish bloggers I know, they are also two of the nicest and most down-to-earth people I have befriended through blogging. What's more, they pose for the best photos ever.

Much to my disappointment, the event was all wrapped up by half-past ten (after-party, anybody?), but that isn't to say the Style Blogger Awards weren't the best night out I have had this year. I wouldn't mind being shortlisted next year too, just to party all over again.

On that note, I would like to offer my thanks to everybody who voted for me in this year's awards. As you may have guessed, I didn't win, nevertheless it means so much to me that you wonderful people enjoy following my fashion features and street style shenanigans. It doesn't end here!
