"BABY, INSTANT SOUP DOESN'T REALLY GRAB ME".

Listening to: The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight- R.E.M.

Hello to all my followers, those who comment and those who visit. I can't express how much it means to me to have you all pop over to say hello. Please continue, and know I am always here for a chat.

********

Today I have spent the day on the floor of my room trying too DIY my jacket; and its been so HARD! First my sewing machine brakes (honestly have no idea what  is wrong with it), then the fabric glue I bought is useless, then I can't find my stitch unpicker, then I drop the thread about a hundred times (teach me for using 'invisible' thread), and I poke both my finger and my thighs with the needle. It's like this jacket just doesn't want to be completed.

But despite this there has been progress; and the trickiest bit is now over! This will not beat me- I refuse point blank to either give up or simplify my design. Here is a small progress shot, and I apologise for it not being completed today- if everything had gone to plan it should have but I'm going to work extra hard to get it sorted asap and share with you all.


But the day was not a complete disappointment. I spent time with the boyfriend (and he bought both me and my sister a gift- but she hasn't received hers yet so shhhh), and I found my boyfriends old mega comfy Sonic Youth t-shirt he gave me- WHOOP!!







T-shirt: Gift
Cardigan: Topshop
Velvet skirt: eBay
Socks: No idea... possibly Primark
Shoes: DIY
Headscarf: Camden market.
Bag: Gift- I think River Island.

My boyfriend LOVES this cardigan (he has even worn it himself once or twice), maybe because I wore it on our first date, but mostly because its just so effortlessly beautiful; and looks very grunge- perfect to pair with the t-shirt.

Finally, today I learnt its impossible to over brew Ginger and lemon tea!

I love tea but I can't stand it when people 'let it brew'. It makes the tea all scummy and gives it a funny taste. but I forgot I asked my mum for a tea and she always leaves it to brew. But 10 minutes later when I remembered my tea there  was no scum and it tasted just as good as always- YAY!!

An overall good day today.

  9. Oh man, I feel ya on the jacket front. Tailored jackets can be tricky to get your head around (did you make this yourself). Anyway hope you've made progress with it now! LOVE that cardigan too. It looks so utterly cozy and I can see why your boy would nab it for himself! I would be onto that too actually :P haha.

    1. No I'm not that good- I can alter clothes but I can't visualise clothing enough to make it all from scratch. Just adding on the faux leather is hard enough!
      Glad you like the cardigan- Shame its a very old item or you could have had one for yourself, it's such a great item.
