Christmas OOTD, DIY!

This year I decided to make my own Christmas party outfit, I found this amazing poinsettia fabric whilst I was up in Hull back in October. I took inspiration from the 50's as I feel most comfortable in this kind of cut. I took a dress that I already had(from new look!) and made a pattern with dressmakers pattern paper, then I just got stuck in with the scissors and the sewing machine!

As for the party it was great fun, there were far too many seriously bad drunken dancing pictures. 

Hope your parties have gone down well!

OOTD: New Look skull print top

Howdy folks,

Too long has gone by without a post! Things here are OK, winter has truly set in and a lack of daylight and seemingly working all the time makes it hard to get good outfit pictures. I haven't bought a lot in the past couple of months, until a couple of weeks ago when I went a bit mad and bought a few new things! I decided not to buy a new Christmas party outfit this year so got a few ordinary clothes instead.

Anyway this top is from New Look, I actually went and tried a few things on whilst visiting a friend. I really enjoyed actual shopping since I don't live near a decent New Look anymore :-( This jumper is a sz20-22 and is nice and roomy. Skulls are not something I thought I would wear but I actually surprised myself! My friend Em bought the same top(in the main sz line) in silver.

 We also have a new member of the family. May I introduce Penny and she is very cute and fluffy! She is also developing quite a character. Aside from sleeping she loves chasing things, sitting on my chest as I try to surf the net and standing on my face whenever the opportunity presents itself!
