Win Tickets to The Clothes Show 2015


The Clothes Show used to be a bit of a yearly tradition when I was younger, living in Leicester and only a short train ride away from Birmingham, as a teen me and my friends would save up all of our birthday money (and beg for Christmas money early!) and head off for a whole day of discounted shopping. It used to be something I looked forward to every year but I haven’t visited for quite a few years now, feeling a little like I’d outgrown it and the brands there as I got older, so I’m really excited to see that this year they’ve had a huge makeover.

For 2015 they have re-launched, refuelled and revamped with a whole host of new and varied fashion labels and beauty brands joining the line-up and offering discounts on their latest collections, plus catwalk shows, music (including Charli XCX on Saturday) and talks from leading industry insiders. One of the things I am most excited about is that this year they are including a section for independents, graduates and start-ups to showcase and sell their pieces, you know I’m all about supporting new talents so I can’t wait to see who will be there and what new brands I’ll discover. I’m also of course looking forward to shopping some of my favourite brands, the new designer outlet, graduate catwalk show and also the Olympus PEN Style Studio with Hilary Alexander, interviewing some of our brightest young designers.

I’ll be heading down myself on the Saturday to check out the re-launch and I’ve also got one pair of tickets to giveaway for the same day – we can grab lunch if you like too! Check out the line-up for Saturday’s show here and if you’d like to win them, all you need to do is enter using the widget below, you can do as many or as few of the options as you like and the winner will be selected at random from all valid entries on the 19th.

If you’re not lucky enough to win, tickets are still available to buy from The Clothes Show website, drop me a tweet or email if you’re going! Good luck!

2nd Birthday Giveaway Winner!

First of all, I just wanted to thank everyone who entered the 2nd birthday giveaway & for all of the lovely comments on that post too, I so enjoyed reading them & it’s so nice to know that so many of you have stuck around for almost the entire 2 years! It means a lot that you continue to come back & read what I have to say, and for all of your support too. I don’t think I can even put into words how much I truly appreciate it.

I wish I could give you all a little something as a thankyou, but obviously that’s not possible, so I decided to do the next best thing & randomly pick two winners, instead of just the one – it is the 2nd birthday after all! The first number chosen through will win the skirt & the snood, and the second number will win a snood!

I am thinking of making this a bit of an annual birthday tradition, so that over time lots of you will be able to win a custom piece, seeing as it had such a good response!






I will be contacting you both through email to arrange everything later today, congratulations again girls!

PS: I’ve had a lot of people asking about the snood & if they could buy one since I posted the giveaway photos. I’ve decided to offer a few as custom, made to order pieces for £30 + shipping, so if you would like one yourself drop me an email at with the colour you’d like (pretty much any colour is possible) & I will get back to you.

FAIIINT’s 2nd Birthday Giveaway!

On Friday FAIIINT turned 2 years old, it feels so strange writing that as I still feel like I’m so new to this! The past 2 years have been incredible – I’ve worked with some of my favourite brands, with people I’ve looked upto for the longest time, met so many lovely fellow bloggers, made new friends from all over the world, attended some awesome parties & been offered so many amazing opportunities, all purely thanks to this little blog. It’s quite surreal.

As a huge thankyou to all of you for reading over the past few years & your support, I’m having a birthday giveaway! I’ve been talking a lot about basics in my posts recently, those items every girl should own & so I thought I’d like to giveaway 2 pieces I consider to be absolute staples in my wardrobe, that I wouldn’t be without…

The first is a good maxi skirt, I made this one for myself a few weeks ago as I couldn’t find exactly what I had in mind elsewhere. The thin cotton lawn fabric & raw hem keep it casual, whilst the full gathered shape adds a little drama, especially when it billows out in the wind & I have been wearing it to death since I made it. Plus, it’s the perfect length too, I hate when I ruin maxis because they drag on the floor & get tatty within weeks. The second is of course, the fur snood. I posted a photo of one I made for a friend on Instagram a few weeks ago & you guys went nuts asking where to buy them, so I thought it’d be a good 2nd item to include!


The Prize…

One winner will get –

1 custom maxi skirt. Made from fine 100% cotton lawn, it has a side zipper & raw hem. I will make one up custom, to the winners size & measurements to ensure a perfect fit & length.

1 faux fur snood. Made from super luxury faux fur, it looks & feels incredibly realistic & is also lined in slinky satin for comfort. The winner can choose from black, brown or burgundy.


How To Enter…

Do at least one of the things on the list & then leave a comment on this post telling me which you did!

Each extra item on the list gets you another entry, so if you complete all of them you have 7 entries & 7 chances to win!

One entry for each of the following :

The giveaway is open internationally & anyone can enter. I know the blog is mostly read by girls, but guys, I don’t want to leave you out, so feel free to enter & if you win we’ll discuss a menswear alternative!

The winner will be picked at random from all entries on the 25th November & announced here on Wednesday. Good luck!

Giveaway is now closed! Thankyou for all your entries & good luck!

Dream Black Dress Giveaway – Winner!

Firstly I just want to say thanks to everyone that entered the Dream Black Dress giveaway! I really loved reading all of the comments & wish I could have picked more than just one of you, there were so many awesome ideas for dresses that I’d have love to have made! It seemed to be a real success though, so I’m considering running this giveaway for each blog birthday in the future!

Anyway, onto the important part, the winner …

So picked number 24 & that was Becky! Congratulations!

Admittedly her design is much more girly than what I am used to & not something I would usually make, but I love a good challenge, so I’m excited to get started on it & will hopefully be posting the finished result for you all to see before Christmas!
