finishing touches

i promise to get back to all your lovely comments from all you sweeter than sweet lovelies, as soon as i've completely finished all my work. i'm having to travel up to the city of nottingham on monday to hand it all in, so i'll have no excuses after then.
but, i give you my final creations, although, some still need buttons, hook and eyes, elastic and a few stitches.
not sure whether i mentioned what my project was about. but it was first based on the schoolgirl look, which i've taken shapes from certain elements. and childlike and girly aspects. then, i focused on the idea of 'growing up and staying young'. like when we were younger, all we did was dress up in our mother's heels, wear her pears and lipstick and be older and sophisticated. now, our mid twenties and upwards, all you hear from those grown-ups are "oh, to be young again!".
i played with the sizes. long long leggings, short and sweet dress, oversized t shirt and oversized cardigan.
anyway, a few photos from the shoot..

photos were taken by my magic friend who loves neon orange watches and loves to buy sparkly sequin trinket boxes for her friends (which i have an addiction for).

  8. Love!! How are you? I love love these photos and outfits, you did very well with the theme, it is very sweet and innocent yet appropriate for grown-ups as well which is a very nice combination.

    I have decided to move to the general Edinburgh area, which now means that I need to deal with all the silly paperwork and immigration issues...ugh. But my point is that I will have to make frequent trips down to visit you, and you will have to come visit me, and we will have wonderful tea parties and games of dress up!

    Hope you are doing wonderfully m'dear!

  17. Hey. I love the outfits you created. I was wondering if you had some suggestions for cute shops in London (as I know you're british). I'm going to be there for two days only and want to make the best of it. Since you have such a fabulous sense of style- I thought you'd be best to ask.
    Thanks.
