Valleygirl blouse (yet again!), thrifted Sass tulle skirt, thrifted pumps, vintage bracelet, Emerson bag, Forever New belt, DIY collar
Ever since watching Chriselle's wonderful DIY video on how to make your own collars, I've been just dying to make one for myself. So I finally found an old white collared blouse at the op-shop for no more than 50c and set to work. It was so easy and added the perfect amount of 'polished' and 'preppy' charm to my outfits. It looked really cute with a sweater too. All you have to do is cut the collar off of a basic work top (or mens business shirt) and add whatever embellishments that take your fancy! For this one I added pretty gold bows to the corner with a glass bead in the middle. It took me about 10 minutes to sew them both on :)
Next I'd love to make a sequin, lace or embellished flower collar... the designs are endless! Give it a go ♥
Oh, and guess what? I was so excited! I was just shopping for some basics in Big W the other day (equivalent to Wal-Mart in the US) and I spotted this adorable Mulberry inspired bag for $7.00! It looked so lonely on the shelf so I had to buy it. Besides, the justifications were endless; one of them being that it was cheaper than most fashion magazines these days. How on earth could I pass it up? The leather is lovely and it's perfect for school.
Anyway, onto some other news; my operation went really well and I just wanted to thank you all for the well wishes. It was quite funny though because my Mum was telling me all about the silly things I said after having the general anaesthetic... apparently I started giggling, "seeing double of everyone", claiming that my brain was "melting out of my ears" and that I "refused to fall asleep"! I honestly don't remember any of it! Have any of you got any hilarious stories of your reaction to that kind of medication? To top the day off, after surgery, Cookie Monster came to pay me a visit (much to my protest as I'm nearly 16!) and my Mother began snapping away embarrassing photos... Oh well, at least I got free rainbow ice-cream :) I feel much better now, and the next few days are all about relaxing and recovering.
P.S: This is my 250th post!! Yay!!
