It all started with a picture lol
I spotted this on a Vogue Blog post a while back, & it started my mind going (bad thing i know! lol). Why dont i try wardrobe alterations? But just because this looks to-die-for, doesnt mean anything i do will look better than a child’s nursery project ;)Although i have started thinking about the alterations i can make to my clothes… im pouring through this September issue of Vogue loving the new autumn/winter ‘10 looks! Problem; i cant afford new socks right now (serious!). So im gonna go all Gok Wan on my clothes and visit these haberdasheries he keeps wetting himself over ;)
I mean i know how to sew pretty well & that, but am i gonna ruin or improve my entire wardrobe? (i’ll be in pj’s until next summer if this goes wrong! lol)
So… the first thing i spotted was the cover of this month’s Vogue…
Could not be more in love with the Burberry navy military jacket Kate Moss is wearing. If you cant afford Burberry, what to do? lol Well, turn the new navy cardigan i brought somewhat on trend with neutral, minimal colours with military details, by adding brass ‘antique’ style buttons. Who knows, maybe it could work??? ;)
Next issue to tackle… leggings! Mine are plain, black & booooring! So what new trends to (attempt!) pull off; rouching, side buttons, lace, cut-outs???
Finally! I have an organised wardrobe!! ;)
Ive been living in the spare box room back home out of suitcase for a few months now & couldnt take the mess anymore lol So ive managed to wangle using the wardrobe in the room being decorated & now i have my clothes back on hangers ;)
I cant wait for the day i have a HUUUUUGE walk in wardrobe (i know im living in a dream world!) xoxo

OMG girls (& boys?) i've got a new music obsession (i know they come fast & often! lol) … IDINA MENZEL <3
- Gorgeous, AMAMZING voice, Glee favourite!
LOVIN’ ‘Poker Face’, ‘I Dreamed A Dream’, ‘Brave’.
It may only be August, & I may be all doom and gloom… but does anyone else feel like dressing for autumn already?!
My favourite time of year for wardrobe choices = AUTUMN!! ;) I love the cute cardigans and emergence of boots… the chill in the air means i dont have to worry about baring wobbly arms or pale legs anymore AND its not cold enough to have to tot around wearing a mahussive coat!
So, style choices?? Denim jackets have waltzed back in with the 90’s revival, leather jackets are always appropriate, brown & sheepskin wool are all over Vogue the past few months, military tailoring & buttons galore are everywhere & a blazer is always necessary … where to go???
O the dilemna! lol Good job i’m skint, or i really would have to ponder this life-altering choice ;) xoxo
