Year Of The Accessories – Headscalf Game

I feel like, for me atleast, 2018 is the year of accessorising! If you’ve seen some of my OOTD posts you would know my #1 is the full head wrapped head scarf.

No matter the hair day – this look works. The amount of compliments I get even when wearing a super basic outfit (above for example, just a pair of black jeans and a white button up shirt.)

Love the look with my 60s style sunnies/ any over the top sunnies they have out at the moment!

Not to mention the perfect cover up for dirty or clean (still wet) hair days when you just gotta get out and do something but your hair wont co-operate

I have expanded my headscalf collection quite a bit this year, forever keeping an eye out for them at op shops and vintage stores!

Loving the longer skinnier scalfs for wrapping my ponytails in. Particularly this vibrant coloured pure silk scalf I picked up the other weekend.

It really brings any outfit together. Cant go past those colours!!

On the same op shop mission I found this Valentino headscalf which is well in my rotation. Also perfect for the half-up-half-down wrap, or just around a loose ponytail.

Ideally I would love to get a fringe like Bridgett Bardot. This would really bring my headscalf game together!! Plus about 5 more pairs of sunnies.

You will find some scalfs on my Etsy store soon

What’s your favourite accessory at the moment??

Sewing Sample – 60s Floral Outfit 

I’m so excited! I’ve just about completed my first 60s style floral bra and shorts set, along with matching scrunchy. I chose a dusty pale pink as a contrast lining on the set, (also as tribute to one of our current colour fads,) which will tie into one of my next sets 😄

Can’t wait to make more out of this fabric, its super cute, but I put together a little colour story with some other fabrics I already have as an idea for my first release of pieces this summer.

I would really love to hear your feedback!
Hoping to make another style of shorts and top, along with a skirt and basic dress in varied fabrics.

Lots of sewing to do! I have nearly finished my trial for the next style of shorts after yesterday’s RDO sewing day! 

Keeping productive!!

Sewing Sunday

So I’ve started a little project

Its been in my thoughts for some time now but it takes forever to decide on anything. But today I finished off my first trial for a style of shorts I’d like to make as part of a set out of this amazing 60s style fabric.

 I want to make a small capsule collection as I managed to get a small amount in the blue background and an even smaller amount with a black background that will lead into my next styles and colours.

Hoping to get an etsy store up and going and start doing some markets by summer. So my next weekends are booked for sewing and saving. 

Exciting things to come!
