So annoyingly i don't have an outfit post for you lot today. I wanted to show you my outfit yesterday cause i actually quite liked it, but yeah i forgot and my friends were round and i didn't want to be like oh yeah can you take a picture of me please.. so i didn't! and now my tights have ripped so it sadly wont be the same the next time i wear it! but oh well, I'll take a picture the next time. So yesterday i went to the new and very very amazing Urban outfitters that has just opened up in Brighton. I wasn't excited before but i am one happy shopper right now. it's amazing much better then i thought it was going to be, the shops so brilliant and it's massive! but the only bad thing is, i went in there with about 10p in my purse it was the most horrible experience. i wanted literally EVERYTHING and had no money. But i just kept thinking in my mind 'christmas soon christmas soon' so i shall hopefully be spending my money in there! or i'll get my mum and dad to get me some things from there. it's a tad expensive though but it's just so worth it. some pieces are just lovely. I would show you all the things i want from the website but i think it might go on for too long and i don't really have time today as i have a lot of work to do. fun work though! drawing victorian clothes. starting Fashion project Monday and i couldn't be more excited, and theres a fashion show at the end of it all too so it's all very exciting!. anyway what i wanted to show you today was my shoe collection...i say the word collection very loosely because it's hardly a collection but it's a few pairs of shoes i manipulated in my textiles project. I went up to my old secondary school yesterday and got them back! so heres some..
so these are my first shoes, I did this for one of my final pieces, they took 10 hours to make! i first paper mached (sorry don't know how to spell it!) a cheap primark pair of heels. they took SO long to dry. i then had to rip up all the sweet rappers, oh yeah i didn't mention..it's all made from Roses sweet rappers! I'm surprised i didn't put on about 10 stone but i had to eat SO many chocolates to get enough rappers. I was sick of chocolate after that. so yeah then i just stuck loads of strips of rappers on the shoe and on the bottoms, theeeen i did latch hook for the rug effect on the side of the shoe! so yeah they took me SO long to make but i'm quite proud of them. they've gotten a bit battered now but no one made things like that in my textiles class they all made like embroidery so i thought i would be a bit different and try it!
These also took me ages, i did these after my final piece ones because i had to carry on with the project after so i could get a better mark. So i made these, they were also some cheap pumps quilted pumps from Primark. i got blisters on my hands from doing this cause it was so hard to push the needle through dedicated right? haha.
So sorry about not having an outfit post this week. I wasn't sure if i wanted to post things about my art/textiles because i wanted it to be a Fashion blog. but because i haven't got anything else to show you i thought i'd do this! hope you enjoyed them, and tell me what you think of them..
Will defiantly have a outfit post for you lot tomorrow. Because if i don't then i am a bad bad blogger! meant to be going to be a party tonight but i might cancel it and finish off all my work hmm decisions decisions.
thank you everyone that follows and comments i really appreciate it! i haven't had any new follows for a while now :( i'm stuck on 58! not that thats bad i love you all xo
