Bear with me for a moment.



I made this skirt a few months ago from some faux velvet I bought from a market stall. Out of all my DIY's it's probably the most successful 'cuz I wear it quite a lot of the time. I love the textured appearance, and the colour, which sortof reminds me of purple quality street wrappers. Ooh and speaking of chocolate, I got to open the first window of my advent calendar this morning! It shouldn't be that exciting, but I still feel like a little kid at heart ;)

College is closed (again) today because of the snow, which means I'll be spending the rest of my Wednesday browsing blogs, drinking hot chocolate, and watching a Gossip Girl box set. Ahh, bliss.

  13. Oh MY - the colour and look of texture of that skirt looks amaze. I NEED to make time for some DIY also.
    I love the rest of the look also - especally the bear bobble hat and tights.
    I never suit hats,ahh =[

    ALSO, how did you get the sort of space/universe/starry effect on the last two photos?!?!?!
    Been wanted to know how people do it for AGES.

    Much love :)
