My blog post collaborations have given me a number of wonderful opportunities to connect with many energetic and fascinating #womeninbiz.
A question that I like to ask is about the women; either contemporary or historically, that have provided inspiration.
I am therefore delighted to see that Sparkle O’Hara are running a competition; running through to 11pm 29th September 2017, in which they ask “Who is your vintage style icon”?
In an event that will be filled to overflowing with sparkle Fiona; from Sparkle O’Hara, has provided a selection of the fabulous items that can be chosen by the lucky winners.
FIRST PRIZE – A private and personal shopping appointment “Sparkling Sparkles” at the Sparkle O’Hara boutique in Willesden Green, London and a vintage/vintage inspired dress worth up to £100.
