DIY French Hen Sweater

How would you describe your style?

My style is still changing and evolving, but in the past years it's been very feminine. I like girly things - I even wear kids clothes sometimes, since I'm petite - and vintage fashion inspires me. 

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

I'd say all of my dresses are my favorites. From the girl who would only wear jeans, I've turned into the girl who only wears dresses - so I value each dress equally, and I often associate them with past events. Vintage pieces that belonged to my grandmother are also very important for me.  

Who are your style icons?

I love Alexa Chung from the celebrities bunch, and then there's a number of fashion bloggers that I adore, like The Clothes Horse, Calivintage, Rosaspina Vintage or All This Happiness. 

Do you have any favourite designers?

I love every collection by Carven, and there are a number of high fashion designers that rarely fail to make me swoon. Out of the more affordable ones, I love Dear Creatures, Twentysevennames, Vivetta or Swedish Hasbeens. 

 

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

I buy from the high street stores like H&M or Zara, and I do a lot of thrifting. We have quite a variety of second hand shops here! Sometimes I shop online, but it's the high shipping fees that prevent me from going crazy on e-commerce. 

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I've always liked making my own things, but I've mostly made accessories so far. My dream is to be able to make my own clothes, and although I have a sewing machine, I haven't perfected the skill yet. The day I make a dress from scratch will be one happy day. 

 

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?  

One thing I like to do is wear handmade accessories - whether they're by local artists or DIY projects. Pins are especially versatile, since you can wear them on anything, from coat to bag. You can also find lovely, unique pieces at flea markets and vintage shops!

DIY Galaxy Shoes

Recreate the look with Jo's How-To Make Galaxy Shoes tutorial:



How would you describe your style?

My style is vintage influenced with a touch of silliness! I love quirky clothing, and just feel that fashion doesn't need to be taken too seriously. I love cute prints and sweet little touches on clothing. 

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

It's a terribly biased answer - but I am completely in love with the first dress that I've created under my own brand. It's called the Apple a Day Dress and shaped like - you guessed it, an apple! It has super sweet pan collar and pocket detail and is very me, right down to a tee!

Who are your style icons?

I am so so so influenced by Brigitte Bardot and Edie Sedgwick. I love winged eye liner, short hemlines, big (big big!) hair, and the reddest lipstick possible.

Do you have any favourite designers?

I really love Italian brand, Vivetta. They designed the infamous cat skirt, which is my most coveted piece ever!

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

Most of my shopping is done either online or in vintage stores. I adore ASOS and Modcloth. Modcloth has some of the cutest dresses, with the sweetest collars you've ever seen!

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I often change the hemlines of dresses. That is probably my most regular customizing. I also love to create cute collars and attach them to dresses and tops that I'd otherwise consider plain. 

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

When in doubt, add a collar! That's my motto!
