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.

Living the Cream

This AW14 has been about Camel.

Fortunately for me mumsie bought be a Camel Coatigan Christmas 2013, so I didn’t have to hunt the Highstreet for a piece of Camel coloured Outerwear.

So I used my extra time to wisely to go looking for the right piece of Outerwear to add to my collection and I came across this cream dream:

I got it from Miss Selfridge, but there were loads of places doing a version of, from Topshop to Tesco to Primark and everyone inbetween. And by now I am sure they will all be in the sale.

Only downside with Cream is dirt. It will show up quickly and start to make it look tatty, so I don’t wear it too often. But when I do, boy does it keep me toasty.

Until next time.
