The Maddens

April 15, 2014

A couple of weeks ago I boarded a train with some blogger buddies and headed to Manchester for a street style shoot featuring Steve Madden shoes. We were given £150 and the challenge to take that and create a Summer worthy outfit based around our favourite pair chosen at the Steve Madden store in the Trafford Center. I ended up with a little denim and some indecisiveness between a black or white skirt from Zara and the very popular NONSTP Steve Madden booties.

The girls and I had fun from start to finish and when we were taking group shots we realised just how much we could be doubling for a girl band, so we dubbed ourselves ‘The Maddens’ (if this is really what it’s like for girl bands then I am so down)!  There’s not much more to say other then it was a Friday, there was popcorn, lots of shopping and a hotel room on a floor called ‘Fabulous on Fifth’, now tell me that’s not a match made in heaven for me?

Thanks for the invite The ApartmentKris Atomic for your fabulous images and of course the rest of ‘The Maddens’, from left to right: KitEllaShini and Sarah.

Here’s our diary from start to finish…
