New Look's festival fashion 'frill' !

Hello lovelies, So today's post is going to be something a little different and I mean that in two ways as it actually is a different post then planned, however due to the remarkably dull weather here in the UK (aka torrential rain) I've had to go in another direction. And don't tell anyone but I'm secretly thrilled about it...shh!

Today I received a rather exciting opportunity. Well I actually nearly fell off my bed for starters as I'm only a small fish here in a very large pond of fashion bloggers, I like to think of myself as Nemo with his one tiny little fin, slightly challenged but full of spirit to create big things! (OK kinda off metaphor but you get where I'm going with this). Anyway moving onwards I composed myself and read the email. And guess what? It was awesome.
Inside the email was a preview of New Look Daily's new 'The Evolution of Festival Fashion' timeline. An interactive and fun way to check out the fashion, style and music trends of different music festivals throughout the past 40+ years. Starting in the sixties with the grandfather of the music festival 'Woodstock'and leading right up to 2013 with a guide that helps you match your style to one of this years events. New Look Daily describe it as 'To celebrate a summer of music, we’ve created our very own festival fashion timeline, bringing you all the music and style you need to inspire your festival outfit. Whether you’re glamorous pop princess, a grunge girl, oh-so boho chic or a hip-hop honey, we have everything you need to get in the mood. Tracing the evolution of festival trends in music and fashion from 1969 to 2013, we're taking you on a fashion filled journey back in time.'

To explain this better (because lets face it I'm getting close to rambling) I thought I would share with you an example and one of my personal favourites.
