Best Fashion Moments of 2014

Happy New Year's Eve! 2014 has been such a weird year for me in that so much has changed but I cannot wait for what's to come in 2015 so bring it on! I thought I'd do a 'Fashion highlights of the year' post since I've done one each year so far. I just picked out some of the fashion moments/highlights that stood out for me in 2014.

Lace and Velvet

I hope you all had a good Christmas! I was lucky enough to receive some new clothes, as well as finding some bargains in the sales which I'm excited to blog about over the next few weeks. One of the presents I received was this really lovely dress. It's pretty much all of my favourite things in one dress - a really unique style (I don't think I've ever seen anything like it before), printed fabric, lace detailing and velvet.

Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve! Just a quick post today to show you my christmassy jumper. I found it on ebay for just £4 and it's originally from Topshop so not a bad price. I'm wearing it with my New Look skirt that I've only just got around to properly adjusting in size (despite the fact I bought it in the sales last January!).

Zara Dress

This is a bit late, but oh well...It's been so difficult recently finding the chance to actually take outfit photos, especially since the days are so short now, but...Christmas soon!. Anyway, so this dress is something I found in the Zara sale way back in the summer (I think it was around £10ish). I had to adjust it slightly due to size issues but nothing too drastic.

Print Project

Again, here is another one of my projects, this time featuring my friend, Megan. As the title may suggest the focus of this brief was to create a print, based on an image from my earlier Surrealism research (my overarching theme up until Christmas). I chose Elsa Schiaparelli's veil from her 1931 circus collection, where the blue wavy lines actually represent the snakes on Medusa's head. I used a mixture of tie dying and printing with paint onto fabric to make this jacket.

White Jumper

This is probably now my favourite skirt and I wear it all the time! You may remember I showed it back in September here, but this time I'm wearing it with a really simple but useful jumper I found in the charity shop. Another charity shop piece is this bag that my Mum bought me for christmas (probably 2 years ago now...).

Surrealist Design Project

One of the projects that I've been working on recently is my Surrealist Design Project. The brief was to combine ideas from one designer (Vivien Chong) and one artist (Jenny Liz Rome) to design a final outcome...
