Laura is an English Literature graduate from the UEA, works in digital marketing and is also, in my experience, a pretty cool kid. If there's some sort of creative, artsy, cultural project going on in the Fine City of Norwich, she's almost definitely involved somewhere...
Those amongst you with a discerning palette may also recognise this adorable face as the other half of Mr Chihuahua Burritos, currently popping up in Bridewell Alley. That slightly knowing, contented look of hers? Guacamole on tap will do that for you.
To add to her list of accolades, Laura apparently also walks her dog past my house every day... (it's not a Chihuahua though, sorry folks)
I challenged Laura to style an outfit that she would personally wear, purely from clothing and accessories found in the Age UK Norwich shop on London Street. Oh, and all in 30 minutes... Here she is, pretending to look casual as I pop out and pap her from behind a handbag...
You all know the drill by now- after Laura had decided on her final outfit and emerged from the changing room like a butterfly from a chrysalis (to be honest that's a rather harsh simile, she looked pretty awesome in the outfit she arrived in- but I'm writing for dramatic effect here, peoples), we popped outside for a little photo shoot. I know you can't wait to see the results! Thankfully, you don't have to...
What do you think? We think Laura nailed this challenge- she looks amazing! Charity Shop Style skillz!
