Cute as a button

Blouse- Forever 21
Skirt- The Cinnamon Slipper (handmade by MOI!)
Shoes- Office
So all those hours of sewing and snipping have paid off and I have made my very own skirt. I can't get enough of it, having already worn it 3 times since...too much? NEVER! ha ha. I decided on black fabric as I knew it would go with everything this chilly time of year. Since I made my skirt I have bought a beautiful novelty bungalow sewing box, some more fabric and as we speak I am on my second skirt. I have most definitely caught the sewing bug!
This is my brand new necklace which is a tribute to my first ever dog Coco the Dachshund (in my opinion dachshunds are the best dogs ever! One day Coco disappeared and my mum told me she had gone to a big farm with lots of other dogs...I hope wherever she is she's a very happy dog!) I picked the necklace up at a trade jewellery fair the other week from a brand new up-and-coming designer. It was too cute to pass by...it had to come home with me!

What I am loving about my new hobby is the sheer amount of possibilities. 
I have always had a very acquired taste in my styling and in particular I am rather partial to a quirky print....
and sometimes the dresses I imagine in my head don't actually exist in the retail world.
ie: lobster print, jelly fish print, whale, dinosaur print dress....

Surely there must be a gap in the market for this kind of fashion? 
Maybe not...

Well you know what? I guess I'm just going to have to make them myself!
