Cowboys and Ice creams, now there's a combination you never thought you'd hear together. Well I managed to team them up the other day while the sun was high in the sky and peeped out for a while.
I bought this necklace from Claire's Accessories whilst on my trip away with the girls and it instantly put a smile on my face. It's slowly becoming my favourite piece of jewellery.
As lots of you know I'm a big fan of all things cute and kitsch. If it's enough to make me smile....It's pretty much in the bag. I'll never forget when I interviewed Anna Wintour (personal highlight of last year) and afterwards said to myself "I cannot believe I was actually wearing a dress with chilli peppers on when I met Anna Wintour? What the hell?!" and you know what in retrospect I am so glad I did because that's who I really am and it worked because she said yes to me for an impromptu interview after me being told I wouldn't be able to get one.
As much as I'd love to spend my days wearing Chanel, Mary Katranzou and Temperly I just don't seem have the bank balance for it at the moment ha! I like to think when my presenting career takes off big time I will, but for now I will rock up in my homemade sewing creations and vintage.
I picked it up at a Knitting and Stitch show and there was only a metre left in existence so naturally it had to come home with moi. With only 1 metre there wasn't a lot I could do with it. I didn't want to make a cushion or a bag with it. It needed to be clothing! With little options I drafted some panels and made it into a skirt.
