Some exciting news!


Hello everyone! Firstly, I just want to apologise for my temporary absence. I've spent the week reading books on Italian history & politics for my history coursework - sadly meaning I've had no time for clothes related activities. I've got a pile of fabric in the corner of my room that desperately needs to be turned into something - I just need to find a few spare hours! Also, disasterously, my laptop stopped working last night! I don't know what's wrong with it - it just won't turn on. :(.

But it's not all bad news... because I was very very shocked to discover that I won the 'Bargainista Show and Tell Challenge'! I really didn't think I'd win, so I'm absolutely delighted - and EXTREMELY excited about the prize: 2 VIP tickets to London Fashion Weekend! So tomorrow I'm getting up very early (4am...) and travelling to London with my best friend, courtesy of vouchercodes.co.uk!

I don't really know what to expect - but I'll be sure to take loads of pictures and blog about my experience!
The outfit I'm wearing here was the solution to months of pondering about the best way to wear this peter-pan collar top, originally from Whistles but thrifted at a carboot for 75p. It's an awkward colour to pair with things (bright 'Cadbury' purple) - but I think I may have finally found the answer!

I'd best be off now - there's a very early wake-up ahead. And I still haven't decided what to wear...

P.S. I just had a hair cut and dyed it again - its not much different, but what do you think?

Well done, I'd love to go to the fashion weekend - I'm sure you'll have lots of fun, I'm jealous!

I have a bit of a fabric obsession and there's literally piles and piles of it underneath my bed (hidden from parents of course) and I've so far only made a bag :-/ so I know the feeling hehe

PS. Your hair always looks nice (am jealous about that too lol)

That's a lovely outfit, and your hair colour is gorgeous! Can I ask, did you put a blue tinge on the photo? It looks fantastic, so moody and muted, I love it!
