As a Christmas present, I had received a heap of black velvet. The material was gorgeous, and I knew immediately that I would like to make a skirt out of it. Seeing as I do not have sewing machine, it did take a vast amount of time, but it was worth the hours and effort!
Also, I already had a pair of blue boots (originally from H&M) I had glitter-ised them multicoloured, but decided they would look better black. I used fabric paint to cover them, and kept the glitter on the heels and cap.

Today the Telegraph newspaper released their '2011 Best Dressed' List. If i'm honest, the results were predictable, however fully deserved. It mainly consisted of models, singers and actresses, for example Yasmin Le Bon at number 20, Keira Knightley at 9, and Rihanna at 7. I was suprised to find out that Kate Moss only appeared number 13, as her style has been dearly written about in magazines and such. Assistant online fashion editor of the Telegraph writes that Kate has "refreshed her wardrobe in accordance, be it for a grungy, beautiful bad-girl look". I was not shocked to hear that Alexa Chung appeared at first place. The model and presenter has received vast amounts of praise for her tomboy-ish look this year, and personally I love her look too!

Two weeks ago, an article was published in the 'Sunday Times Style' magazine which I was lucky enought to get featured in! It was part of their 'what are you wearing' supplement, and this is my interview writing that came with it-
If I didn't have a school uniform, I'd have to get up a lot earlier to decide what to wear. It can take an awfully long time. I like to plan looks before I put them on. So i'll think up an outfit at night to post on my lookbook blog and then wear it out.
This skirt was a petticoat my sister wore in a school play, the earrings are Topshop, and I wear those creepers everywhere. My other favourites are my red checked DM boots. When you see them, you don't think they'd go with everything, but they do.
I like looking at fashion magazines, not so much to be on trend, but for inspiration- say, if I wanted ideas to customise a piece of my own.
Young people should take the opportunity to dress how they want, because when you're older you have to fit in with whatever's going on around you.
I wouldn't like to think teenagers my age have to dress differently because they're afraid they might get teased by other people. I think it's sad when that happens. I think as long as you enjoy what you wear, that's okay.
