French Connection pitted a bunch of usually congenial fashion bloggers against each other last night in a vicious “blog off,” where mortal enemies were forever made (but, bonus: delicious canapés!). The task was to take any amount of pieces stashed throughout their SoHo store and style the “perfect Holiday outfit”… inspired by the cupcake of our choice. The prize: a French Connection shopping spree and feature on their blog.
Our original plan was red velvet, but after noticing a few others had gotten to it first, we went in a kookier direction and nabbed the most neglected flavor. What you’re looking at is our oddball interpretation of the equally oddball but very tasty cinnamon cupcake: yellow cake, cinnamon filling and vanilla frosting with a hefty dash of spice on top. Unfortunately, you can’t see Jen’s fab shearling boots under the gown (our spin on “cinnamon filling”). Vote for our look by “liking” it on Facebook.
