Wardrobe Wednesday

Lace Collared Blouse: Thrifted from British Heart Foundation
Polka Dot Skirt: Cotton On
Purple Tights: ASDA (UK supermarket)
Obi Belt: Sailor Spy 
Wooden Heart Earrings: Miss Selfridge

Yes, that is me wearing make-up, shock horror! Before my brother came to visit, I ordered a whole bunch of new stuff from my fave online make-up shop ELF and he kindly made room for it in his suitcase. I went for a soft brown eyeliner and mascara to create more natural everyday looks. Also wearing a rosy blush from Model's Own and Nivea Pearl Shine lipbalm.  

I still forget I'm wearing it when I do though, and end up smudging my cat-eyes and smearing lipstick!

This week I'm wearing my beloved reversible Obi Belt, which was a thank-you present from the very talented Nin of Sailor Spy for helping out with her recent fashion show. It's great for defining your waist with slouchy garments and I love that you can wear it in so many different ways! 

I've been working on my skills with my Bamboo Pen and Touch this week and I think I'm getting a little better! I'm discovering my own style of drawing and enjoying creating stylised portraits like the one above. Next stage will be to develop some I can use for embroidery templates!

Here are some examples of my progression so far...

One of my first attempts

Second attempt

Colour experimentation!
Thanks for reading guys! Pop over to Miriam's this week to have a nosey at her wardrobe!


  1. great sketches and love the slouchy style but with definition in the waist. Thanks for joining in

  2. I love your colour combination. I would never dare to wear those shades but you totally pulled it off! I'm also not one for make up but thinking I need to start playing with it.

  3. I agree, those colours are fab. Ecclectic everything just plain rules!
