Paisley Crop

Anyone who's been following my blog for a long time may recognise this paisley print since it's actually from this dress I bought from River Island two years ago now! Unfortunately it shrunk in the wash (which was devastating as I really loved it) but I decided to make the most of it so I just cut off the bottom and I now wear it as a crop top. I'm wearing it with my New Look faux leather skirt which I'm actually getting a lot of use out of now that I've finally adjusted the size!

Leaf print

Because the weather's been so nice recently I've been on the hunt for some clothes to add to my summer wardrobe, and meanwhile managed to find this lovely dress for the bargain of just £10. It's originally from Topshop but I bought it second hand on depop (my new favourite ebay alternative, definitely worth checking out for some really good deals!). I loved the print and the colours so much that I couldn't resist buying it and it's actually really versatile as it can be dressed up for a night out or worn more casually during the day. I really need to find myself some summer shoes though as I'm stuck in black tights and boots at the moment.

Cut out shoulders

I finally got around to taking some photos (even if they're not that great...!). I made this dress last week out of this amazing printed fabric. I decided to try out a style different to what I usually make so I kept the shape quite relaxed (though I would probably wear it normally with a belt) and then made cut out shoulders (which went surprisingly well considering I'd never experimented with that before). I'm wearing it with my £6 Missguided heels (still can't get over what a good deal they were!).
