I'm still learning

Growing up in the UK in the 1990’s, I had my fair share of fashion faux pas, there were shell suits (neon green, pink and grey!), Reebok classics (urgh..) and Ellesse jumpers (let’s NOT go there). 

I admit, at 28, I still do make fashion mistakes whilst trying to be creative.

Take this dress:

Looks lovely on her doesn’t it? I thought, wow, this would be good with bare legs and sandals or shoe-boots, or with a denim/leather jacket.

So I went along and brought the sucker. 'I'll be adventurous!' I said...

Now, when I tried the dress on, I loved it, with heels it brought about a 1950’s-esque look....but when it translate onto didn't look....quite right...

Note: to self, the model is 5’10...I am 5’3.

Never. Again.

I guess I am still learning on what suits my body. 

Have you ever made a fashion faux pas in order to be creative? Do you know what suits you and what doesn't?

Let me know!

Thanks for reading.

Starry eyed

Happy new year to you all! I hope you are all well and had joyful holidays. 

I have such high hopes for 2013, I have so many exciting projects both professionally and personally and I can't wait to share them with you!

So recently I have been noticing a certain trend that I am currently loving at the moment, star/galaxy print clothing.

I first noticed the print on the Domino Dollhouse Astralnauts Collection, where Tracy Broxterman had created some gorgeous pieces including their babydoll dress and pencil skirt (below). 

I then noticed two ASOS pieces that had followed the trend, a stunning pair of leggings

and also, a lovely wrap top from ASOS Curve which I recieved as a belated Christmas present from my husband (aww!).

I kept my outfit simple as I wanted the top to be the main focus. 

Top: ASOS Curve (here), Leggings: H&M, Studded Pumps: Primark

So have you noticed any other pieces similar to this trend, if so, please let me know! 

Thanks for reading!
