That big white rose up on that sign..

Dress: Handmade (Simplicity 2444)
Shoes: Topshop
Necklace: Christmas gift (not sure of the make)
Top: Topshop
Another of my Simplicity 2444 streak. This one, I'm particularly happy with as it was made from a pair of curtains. I was pleased that I managed to get all of the pieces out of them - it was touch and go for a while there. I've layered it up with the tinsel top I bought from Topshop when I was in Bath before Christmas. An inpulse buy which I'm still not sure I'm wearing as well as I could. It's far to short not to layer over a dress, really. I fear I showed far too much flesh when I wore it with the red skirt.

I really love this necklace; a gift from my mum in my Christmas stocking. I seem to be all about the big floral collar necklaces at the moment and I'm liking the fact that they're popping up everywhere.

I've been asking for ages, but I reeally reeeeeally need to find myself a new camera. I'm by no means a photography whiz, but I'm thinking DSLR. What do you guys use? My little point and shoot is about 7years old and is really on it's last legs.  Help, please?


  1. Beautiful dress, you are a talented lady! Unfortunately I have no camera knowledge...Useful, right?!

  2. Google micro 4/3 mirrorless camera according to boyfriend! Also if you want a tripod there is a cool thing called a gorilla pod which fold up really easily and attaches to anything

  3. I'm ever so impressed with your dressmaking skills Char especially with that fabric. Eeeep! x
