Flower power

It's officially winter. How do I know this? I had to put my quilt on my over my duvet last night, although that could just be because my room is permanently freezing.

I'm going to a party in.. two weeks? And I don't know what to wear. I've been specifically told to look 'hot', which pretty much means body-con, body-con and.. push up bra. Unfortunately, that's not exactly my style, so I'm in a pickle over what to wear. I've been planning a dress on my mannequin, but when I managed to finish arranging pins everywhere and was finally satisfied with the end result, I realised that I still had to sew it. How am I meant to work out how to take it off the mannequin, sew it, then end up with the same thing I had on the mannequin in the first place! This is all much too confusing. I think I need a bit of Christopher Kane to calm myself down.

I love the way in which they start off simple, but vibrant in colour, then move onto the bright lines creating detail down the dresses, and then to link in the patterns, the lines are put on them. It's very clever because it makes all of the pieces in the collection relevant to each other. I love all of these! They're slightly brighter in colour to Kane's usual stuff but in a really good way.

I went to some really lovely little vintage shops in the covered bit of Brixton market yesterday, and got some shoes and a fur collar. I'm planning on adding a little flap to the under side of each side of the collar so that I can wear it on it's own, or put it over the collar of the coat that I've nearly finished.

Luckily the heels aren't too big because otherwise I wouldn't really be able to wear them that much, but they're a good mid height so I wore them today. (I just noticed the carpet marks on my ankles.. lovely.)

Shirt, Zara
Trousers, Carrefoure 
Shoes, Brixton Market

I'm secretly really happy that I can finally wear warm clothes, which is even more vital today because I'm ill- on a Sunday! I've lost my voice so badly that I tried to sing along to a song yesterday and all that came out was a squeak.

    I have no clue what I'll be wearing, but it sure as hell won't be a bodycon.
