Things to alter...

Okay, so i have a new found hobby: buying long frumpy granny clothes with intention to alter them to fit and never getting around to it.... Here are two items bought with-in this hobby.

Both need to be shortened but will i do it? That is the burning question... The dress was 50p, the skirt £1 both from a charity shop.

Current events;

Hello guys! Just a little update for you all so it doesn't look like i've given up! I have bought a few new bits and bobs of clothing to show you which i shall photograph and post tomorrow. A few of them need altering ( i have a new obsession with buying long pleated granny skirts and making them short) So i will do that and post them, maybe a before and after? But anyways i'm doing a practice photoshoot for 1960's makeup tomorrow with my friend so that should be fun. And i'll post my new items tomorrow evening :D

Quilted jacket.

Hello! I was eyeing this beauty up in the charity shop alllll day wondering whether to buy it or not and then mum came in and bought it for me! :D I totally love it and it was only £2.50! It does make me look slightly stuck up and posh though haha....

Really loving the British heritage country look at the moment, thinking of sewing on elbow pads to add to the look!

The blazer i have been lusting over for weeks :3

Soooo guys.... LOOK!!! I know it seems like just another blazer but i don't care because i super super love this one! It has been in the charity shop i work in for about a month but it had a vile skirt with it... No one would buy it :( So i asked my boss if it could part ways with the skirt and be mine, she said yes! Love my life.

Okay i apologise for ranting but it is so gorgeous :3

Another blazer! (think i'm addicted)

I went to the charity shops a few weeks ago in Exeter with my muma, and i found this. I like his because of the buttons (nom nom gold buttons!) And it was only £2.50, tried it on in the shop, loved it, bought it!
Then i got home and had a look at the label and realised it was part of the old nationwide bank uniform!

So i now wear part of a vintage bank uniform haha :P

Pigeons and peacocks.

I was looking through all my old books yesterday and i came across this. I went to a university convention in London last December and picked this book up. I thought it was jus a prospectus for a uni but found out it was actually a magazine created by students of London College of Fashion. It's amazing, i read through the whole thing yesterday and there are some beautiful stories in there mainly about the East End of london. It's written in such a modern edgy way. It's totally the book for up and coming fashion students, definately worth a read for people that live/want to live in the east end (like me) :)
