I've been super busy the past few weekends attending various open days for university's, its crazy that i could be leaving home and going to uni next year, a strange excitable yet panicked mode takes over when i think about it. Yesterday me and my friend plodded up to London College of Fashion, unfortunately we were late and missed the only talk we wanted to hear but we got a good feel for the uni, if anyone studied fashion design at LCF or anywhere else in the country for that matter and enjoyed it please let me know, would love to hear what people really think of their courses and would give me an idea of where to look next!
Anyway this is my outfit today featuring a little DIY...
In summer i DIYed this little skirt and top by simply cutting an old dress in half, it made it very versatile in summer because it meant i could wear the pieces separatly or both together as this outfit shows. I tried to layer it in this outfit because its still a little cold so simply added this plain white shirt underneath. This is my college bag, its perfect. Fits all my sketchbooks in perfectly and i love it, it cost me £8 from a boot sale which is steep for a car boot yet i'm so glad i invested! As for the boots also from a boot sale, originally Topshop, good condition and only £3!
Dress- Topshop & DIY
Shirt, Bag, Blazer, Necklaces & Boots- Car Boot Sale
Dress into matching top and skirt set, very simple and easy to do...
1: Start with a dress you no longer wear and want to chop up to inject some new life into.
2: Fetch some scissors that will cut through fabric, these are from Ikea and do the job nicely!
1: Cut the top away from the skirt, this particular dress had a strip of elastic on the waist so i just just above the waist elastic.
2: I folded over where i had cut and stitched on my sewing machine to create neat edges where i had cut, and that's it done!
Hope you have a lovely weekend...
