I'm hoping that i'll get time to do some more outfit posts soon, I really miss them, but a- levels are so much work! Especially art and textiles, they are crazy. I have a six and a half hour shift at work tomorrow because I took on extra for half term, so I am gonna be so tired. But I really hope that I'll get some more stuff on here soon! Oooh and also I got some heels today for the sixth form ball (not until February but I need my dress altering in the next few weeks before the lady goes on holiday)- they're black wedges and I love them! The upper is suede and the heel is patent, and they only cost £20 from Dorothy Perkins, literally the first and only pair I tried on. I may take some photos of those to show you soon!
I love how my new lens gets my good focus like this. The shutters on french windows are so cute!

I'll admit the red dress is not so great, at least I don't like it much; looks kind of like your belly buttons has affected the dress, so that the dress actually has a giant belly button?! I don't know if that even made sense! But I love, love, love those trousers! They're brocade and the print looks just like a William Morris design, both of which are things which I adore. Seriously, it's like these trousers were designed just for me, I've been looking for some patterned trousers for months and these are the best I've found so far. The only drawback- they cost £185. I obviously can't justify that, but I can still dream! I also really like the cyber print leggings, especially the colours as they're sort of dull so they'd be easier to wear. I'm not sure about that skirt at the top; even though the pattern and shape are both things which I like, it looks too simple. Like I could make it myself over a weekend, why would I spend £250 on it?
If I had the money, I would definitely be investing in at least one of these pieces!

Now that people at school know about it, it could turn into a big thing where people are just laughing at me. But do I really care? I mean, I'm pretty sure that I want to work in fashion, which is super competitive and fierce, so shouldn't I just 'man up' a bit? Sure, I could just delete my blog and start a new one, but that isn't what I actually want. This blog helps me to develop my style and see what does and doesn't work, and along the way I can share it with other people. It's not a very old blog (yet), but i've still spent time on it, and I don't want that to go to waste just because of a couple of people at school seeing it.
So i'm keeping my blog, just as I have been all along. If people start talking then i'll just have to ignore it, or actually stick up for myself. I've now told two friends about my blog, so at least I can talk to them about it; although I didn't give them the URL and they didn't ask. What about you guys- have you told people about your blogs? If so, how many? Have any people accidentally found your blog who you didn't want to, and if so what did you do?

So, me and mum gave it a go, and it's much harder than it sounds! I could go through about three magazines in a row without seeing anything I liked the look of, which did get a bit annoying in the end and I did tear out a few photos which I didn't really love, just because I thought I was being too picky. The hardest part was trying not to just pick out pictures of clothes you like, because that's not what it's about- but clothes are the main thing I like! I think in the end I managed to limit myself pretty well, and i'm really pleased with how it looks in the end. Mum never finished hers, but mine now hangs on the wall in my room beneath my pinboard.
A major 'trend' on my board seems to be patterns, especially florals and William Morris/ Liberty ones. Obviously I had to include the Daisy Lowe image because she's just stunning, although i'm not sure why I liked the picture of the model in the yellow dress because I hate yellow clothes. I think it's the detail around the neck which appealed to me. The little image of the rabbit in the top right is really cute too; it was this person who bought various pocket watches and then put little illustrations in them. If I ever see a pretty pocket watch for a decent price then I think it would definitely be a fun thing to trySorry about the photo, I know it's hard to see much detail on it. I did take four close- ups but whenever I try and put them into this post it rotates them for some reason? They're the right way round in my pictures, weird! Hopefully you can see all of the smaller photos too though, like the stack of teacups and especially those shoes and socks at the bottom- that's my favourite image of the whole thing!
edit: if you click on the image you can see it bigger to get all the detail. If you're wondering about the chickens, it's because I have six pet chickens and those are my favourite breed. We don't have any of those ourselves though because they're huuuge!
