The Muddy Stilettos Awards, Sussex – 2016 finalists!


Award buttons 2016 - Berkshire - WinnerDrum roll please… here’s the full list of finalists for the 2016 Muddy Stilettos Awards, Sussex 2016. We’ve got big outfits, niche favourites, places I know well and ones I’ve been excited to find out about. But they all have one thing in common, they got  enough nominations in their category to make it into the top five. Have a look for the places you know and love and please give them your vote. If you voted in round one you can still vote again in the final. I’ve added quick links to the categories to make it easy for you (just click on the pink category header) but do share the love around, vote in as many categories as you can and put some smiles on some faces.
