Facial Exercises Selfie

Who remembers when there was a craze for people to do daily face exercises?

I do. I never understood it, the intention was to help people look younger for longer… I think. To be honest I didn’t pay it as much attention as I should. Maybe it was intended to make people feel happier? Let’s be honest watching yourself, or someone else for that matter, making expressive funny faces in the mirror is enough to turn any frown upside down.

I challenge you to give it a try and see if you don’t fall over (not literally) laughing at yourself.

Until next time,

Highneck Asymmetric Dress

asymmetric

There is something about an asymmetric dress or skirt that I just love!

I say that but this love does vary between styles. My big love is of asymmetric dresses that have a peep-a-poo feature or a wrap, much like the one I made. They are a more versitile style for asymmetry, easily dressed up or down. Asymmetric hem dresses are looooooow on the love scale… I don’t really understand them and as yet, have not found, or made, one that has convinced me of the design. But that does not mean to say I can not be convinced. If you know of any convincing patterns I should try leave me a comment in the box below.

The idea for the asymmetric dress I made came really organically. I had been sketching a lot of sporty/athleisure outfits. One of which was a highneck crop with hareem style pants, and I just wondered what it would look like to put the highneck crop shape onto a skirt, but keep the sporty aesthetic.And because I didn’t want it too look too serious, I chose to use a dark base print fabric to keep it smart but fun.

Let me know your thoughts.

Until next time,

Slouchy Sunday

This was my slouchy Sunday outfit.

Maxi dress with a shrug. Easy to run around it to get those Sunday errands done, and comfy enough to relax in once it’s all over.

Autumn Co-Ord

My favourite thing about Autumn is the falling leaves.

Although this print is of flowers, the design concept was inspired by the signature of Autumn.
