"IT TOOK ME SO LONG TO FIND OUT, AND I FOUND OUT"

Listening to: Day Tripper- The Beatles.

Some rubbish phone pics of my lace DIY shorts that I promised to show you included in an outfit.





 Shorts: DIY
Velvet bodysuit: Primark
Belt: New Look
Tights and socks: Primark
Creepers: eBay
Tattoo necklace: eBay
Coat: New Look

I love this outfit, from the shorts to the bodysuit. I was fortunate enough to find a tattoo necklace (which I've worn every day since its arrived) which reminds me of ones I wore in my early teens. I love it! and I think it balances off the lace in my shorts to bring together my outfit. I can't wait for the summer so I can were these shorts more- I've had quite a few compliments on them, with people asking me where I bought them and not believing me when I tell them they are home made- they look much better quality then shown in the pictures. Despite being there when I made them my mother, boyfriend and sister seems to think I bought them from some sort of vintage boutique- surely they don't look that good?  Also being made from jeans a few sizes too big means they are really quite high in the waist so feel great to were.

I cannot get enough of velvet clothes lately- I've always been a massive fan of  the material but until recently I didn't have the confidence to were it other than this bodysuit until now but I can't seem to stop buying velvet clothes. I've had this bodysuit for about 2 maybe 3 years now but I still were it  just as often as when I first bought it.

I have loads of post ideas coming up, including DIY and perhaps a giveaway (!) and I'm found my camera again so hopefully no more phone pictures. There is honestly going to be a LOT of posts- so if there is anything you like seeing so far, or would like to see me try let me know. I love and respond to all the comments I get- and check out every blog who comments over and over again, so drop me a message or question.

    These shorts are so amazing, you could easily sell them!
    I thought the necklace was one of those stretchy plastic ones! So is it a transfer tattoo? x

  5. You're very much excused- I have no problem with bad language if it fits the situation. It's only when every other word is f-ing this or f-ing that do you have no idea what the person is on about I can't stand. Or when it's purposely used in an aggressive manner such as an argument.
    Thank you!
