“Polly Vernon decided to find what it takes to be part of the fash pack’s coolest gang – and yes, it involves wearing a Gaga-style veil…”

 

Polly discovers the key to ‘making it’ onto a street style blogging webpage, basically look like a bit of a wally and you will have them snapping 🙂 Grazia designed a humorous guide to getting snapped! :
