Outfit

Today's outfit post is my entry into Bloggers Do It Better where Kristina has challenged us all to wear sequins. I love the idea of Bloggers Do It Better but I've only participated in one before which was the Colour Blocking Challenge that I posted here. When I saw the sequins challenge I knew I couldn't let this opportunity pass by because I absolutely adore sequins. Although I do have a black sequined dress I thought I would wear my sequined cardigan for this post because I've wanted to display it on my blog for ages but I never got around to it. My sequin cardigan is one of my DIY projects. I sewed all of the sequins on myself. I completed it during the winter holidays last year and it took me about two weeks. I love having such a unique item and I know I'll never find one that is exactly the same. I took inspiration from the sequin cardigans in Alannah Hill last season. It is the best feeling ever when I receive compliments on a cardigan that I have entirely customised myself.

I recently purchased these pink jeans after my only pair of jeans disappeared. I totally should have bought some coloured denim before! I very rarely wear jeans and one of the main reasons is because I believe they don't fit in with my very feminine style. So I think that pink jeans are perfect for me and are a girly take on a pair of jeans. I also love adding colour to an otherwise predominately black outfit. In terms of my shoes, they will probably be the subject of my next DIY project. I want to customise them with glitter.

Winnie said...

Oh wow, you sewed on all those sequins yourself? It's the prettiest cardigan ever and I would definitely have paid for it in the shop. I don't have the patience to sew all of them on myself so I'm a little but in awe- definitely looks like the hard work was all worth it! It's stunning.
