A couple of weeks ago, I received an email about a contest Vogue Eyewear Middle East was running. There were four categories, and all you had to do was submit a picture of you wearing your favorite pair of sunnies and match it with the following category. I submitted a picture under the Retro/Vintage division and surprisingly after a week, I received a call saying that I won, and I was chosen to be one of Vogue Eyewear Style Ambassadors. Imagine my excitement when I learned about that! The winners were given the chance to have a photoshoot, complete with professional hair, make-up and styling and will have a full page feature in two issues of Hello! magazine.
I had an amazing experience with the photoshoot, I was quite nervous because I've always been the one on the the other side of the situation, the one behind the camera. At first, I didn't know what to do, but the whole crew were so supportive and everyone was just having so much fun that I got the hang of it. We had three sets, with three different clothes and eyewear. They gave me designer shoes, tops and skirts and it felt so good that I had the chance to wear those lovely clothes. I know this kind of opportunity doesn't come often, and I am very thankful that I had this chance.
The first three pictures were taken from my iPad, excuse the really low quality :)
