On the 27th of June I had my school prom to celebrate leaving and all that, so I thought I'd share a few pictures with you.  I personally thought it was great and so lovely to see everyone looking so dapper and pretty! 
I decided to do my hair in a 1920's esque-y thing.  I love, love, loved it and it cost me (my mum) £30 at the hairdresser's but I loved it so I think it was well worth it.  As for my dress, everyone kept asking if it was vintage; it was from Miss Selfridge.  I think it was about £50, which is such a bargain compared to some of my friend's dresses.  I never understood the concept of spending £200+ on a dress you'll only wear once?!  
My shoes were from Zara and I love them!  I plan on wear them again because they can't be wasted.  I believe they were £30.  Then there's my bag which was from Internationale at £10 (I didn't intend to buy a matching bag to my shoes but then I saw it and thought 'OMG this needs to be done').  The last thing was my headband and that was from accesorise for £17.50 incase anyone was wondering.  

So, prom does add up money wise but I think it's all worth it for a lifetime of memories!  

As for travel to prom, I went in an American style yellow school bus and...hmm.  It was cute but none of us really loved it.  Oh well, it was a laugh.
We got served a meal which was no where near as bad as it had been made out to be by the previous year group!  After prom everyone headed down to the beach for an all night-er.  Can't say it was the best experience of my life but definitely a funny one!

I'm selling handmade kimonos!

I'm so sorry to have been gone so long, its been my birthday and I've been enjoying the summer.  But I promise I'll have hauls-a-plenty and OOTD's soon.  BUT!

I wanted to share with you all a little venture I'm starting.  I'm going to be selling handmade kimonos!  All made by hand, by me.

Unfortunately the fabric in the photo is no longer available but I can make kimonos in any of the following prints or in any plain colour you'd like.  Fringing is optional and you can change lengths for a little extra!

Mesh Distress

Crop Top (underneath): H&M
Mesh top: H&M
Distressed shorts: Levi's and DIY
Loafers: Topshop
Bag: Select
Ring: Ellise Vintage
Watch: Asos

Considering the sunshine today, going all black and 'goth-esque' was probably not one of my best ideas.  Nonetheless, I bought this mesh tee recently and I couldn't wait to wear it any longer... So here it is.  If you saw my last post you'll have seen these DIY'd Levi's and I'm totally loving them!  Still annoyed you can't see the rips all too well but I suppose I'll live.

Not going to lie, I did receive a few funny looks for wearing this... I didn't think it was overly shocking?  Maybe the people of my town just aren't ready for mesh.  What kind of a place am I living in...
I just wore this to do some shopping today, I bought some cute fabrics and I'm planning on making a kimono and another dress.  I'm thinking of doing a DIY series?  A few tutorials and just showing you guys things I've been making?  Let me know if you'd like it.

DIY Distressed Shorts & Me being Inspired

I've been loving the look of super ripped up distressed shorts recently, but I didn't want to attempt it at all myself....  Previously when I've tried, all I've done it utterly ruin expensive items of clothing... Fortunately, this time around, these black Levi's didn't cost me very much nor were they particularly unique or something I couldn't buy again if my DIY went wrong.
But of course, I sought out the help from The Fashion Citizen!  I love Stephanie and Melissa's style and I wish I lived somewhere as hot and perfect as Arizona.  But alas I do not...
Their tutorial shows you exactly how to distress the shorts in the super cool ripped way, so check ittttt.  Although, I did end up with black fluff all over the floor of my bedroom... A bare-able downside.

As much as I love the outcome, I'm going to do it again on a blue pair soon.  The black thread of the shorts make it so you can barely see the rips :-(.  
Still mega happy!
