Defining FMP Proposal and Tea at Loch Fyne…nomnomnom…..

I had a good day at uni yesterday, I spent all morning doing more research and creating a moodboard and then had a really good chat with Tracey in the afternoon to discuss my proposal. After we visited the Natural History Museum on New Years Day, I felt really inspired by all the colours and shapes of insects, plants and the sea; I decided this would be a really good theme for my FMP. Long-term my plan is to set up my own childrenswear business and for this reason, I had planned that my entire collection for my FMP would be childrenswear. I discussed this with Tracey in the afternoon and she said her only issue was that she didn’t think that I would fully be able to push myself technically and show off my pattern cutting skills if I only did childrenswear. This had been a concern of mine as well, so we have decided that it will primarily be a childrens collection but with some womenswear as well, giving me a chance to challenge myself more technically. It also means that I will be able to create some darker, edgier designs that I may not have been able to do if I were not doing any womenswear. Plus I’ll be able to make one of them to fit me, yayyyyy!!!!!!! I bought an amazing sketchbook for my research too, I’ve been at work today but planning on spending the rest of my weekend on it; the sooner my research is done the sooner I can get designing.

This was the outfit I wore to uni, the dress and the shoes are really old. I rediscovered the dress when I reorganised my wardrobe last week!

Still yucky…

Sorry for looking rather miserable in the photos today, still full of cold. I have retreated back to my bed to write this post and to carry on with uni work; I’m reading a fashion theory journal on uniform during the first World War. I wanted to do some sampling for the Structural Silhouettes brief but we’ll see how it goes…

Coat: River Island

Skirt: River Island this was a bargain, star buy for only £12!!

Knitted faux-fur waistcoat: Topshop

Boots: Office

Beads: Vintage (curtesey of my mum)

Once again, apologies for looking so miserable; Dave assures me these were actually the more cheerful ones!!!

My new tattoo….

Today’s outfit is chosen as it wouldn’t stick to my new tattoo, the dress is absolutely ancient but I love it and the thick boyfriend cardi was an essential today as it was freezing and I had bare legs!!!

 I just had to post this picture, Bracken loves to try and get in the photo everyday so I thought it was about time I put one up!

And this is a close up of my tattoo…

I love it so very very much, isn’t it beautiful??? The guys at Stained Class are all amazingly talented, once again a big thank you to Jimbo 🙂

Outfit is as follows:

Dress: Topshop (years and years ago)

Cardi: Topshop

Boots: Office

Tattoo Day!!!

So, not a very exciting outfit today and not what I would normally wear on a wet and windy day. But I had to wear something where my thigh was exposed as I had a new tattoo today by Jimbo at Stained Class, I love it but you’re going to have to wait till tomorrow to see as Dave had to go straight off to rugby when I got home. Anyhow, this is what I wore:

Whole outfit: Topshop

Boots: Office

First Day Back At Uni…

Today was my first day back at uni, we didn’t really do anything other than enrol. Nice to see people after a long summer off though and the perfect opportunity to wear my dress that I finished making yesterday: my mum bought me a 1950s vintage dress for my birthday and I love it so much that I worked out the pattern and made this version myself.

Dress: Made by me!! Inspired by a 1950s vintage number

Cardigan: Topshop sale!

Shoes: Office, these are one of my oldest and also one of my favourites.

My boyfriend Dave is my photographer 🙂
