One of my resolutions for 2016 was to start writing more as it’s something I love to do (I always make a start and don’t stick with it!) and to buy clothes that truly reflect who I am whilst fitting me well.
This blog is a combination of these two resolutions and I hope to god I stick with it this time.
Late at night when most people sleep, I tend to reflect on the previous day (in addition to other annoying thoughts that don’t pop up throughout the day) and think about what I want to do, be that the following day, month, year or decade (when will I ever get married god damnit!). After one of these irritating thought trains I started to think about a jumper I bought from the Topshop sale in a size too big a few weeks earlier and how I thought it made me look slightly pregnant/just plain frumpy. It made me chuckle to myself as I started to think about other ridiculous purchases I had made in the past and how it would be fun to write about them and maybe learn from my mistakes!
So that led me to this new blog, a place I can share my ridiculous fashion faux pas’, write (hopefully make some people chuckle) and learn from my mistakes.
To start off this series of posts, I’ve inserted a delightful pic of me wearing said jumper;
As you can see, I had a go at taking it in on the sewing machine… Success no?
Of course not, you can’t take a knitted jumper in using a sewing machine Gaby!
I’m going to try and post a couple of times a week, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover so I hope you stick with me!
