as paolo the-oh-so-lovely nutini says, can't we just rewind? i promised i'd be posting again in a couple of days, & that was quite a while ago. i'm sorrryyy! i've been ill & shiz & there's been work to do & a university UCAS night tonight & psychology revision to do & loads of art stuff & ARGHHHHHH!
to make up for not posting my newsy stuff, here's an outfit post to make up for it.
now, i was going to do a before & after thing with my school suit, but i forgot so you'll have to make do with me holding up my grey trousers, you can just pretend i'm wearing them, right?
so, i adapted this outfit to go to a universities thing my school was having (see rant above).
we didn't have to dress up or anything, but i didn't want to just go in my suit!
outfit details: skirt - vintage & customised, blouse - warehouse (same place as t'suit), cardigan - h&m, necklace - dolls & molls, flower - h&m, tights - primark, bracelets - gifts & made by me.
i actually quite like this outfit, it was really only put together so that i didn't have to change completely from my school outfit (yeah man, i'm real lazy), but i think it's quite cute. not for school, but for a job interview maybe? it's a bit too smart for me to wear in an everyday situation.
the light from my window kind of blocked out the pattern of my skirt in the photo, so here's a close-up. i bought this last march at a vintage fair for £4 - it went right down past my ankles! i wasn't sure what to do with it, but my mother is pretty much a sewing genius so she shortened it for me, changed the waistband & turned it into a high waisted skirt & changed the buttons.
overall result = pretty darn fabulous i think!
here's a close-up of the ruffles on my blouse too. it looks much better when ironed i assure you!
