rock and red


First outfit of 2013 on the blog, and since loosing a stone since christmas, I think I am making a conscious choice to dress nicely.  I wanted to share with you my look for the first half of my week working in my studio, its a pretty basic. You are probably thinking she wears her leather jacket in her studio...No i don't but I wear it on the way to the post office. The majority of this outfit is new, I grabbed most of it in the left over January sale, my urban outfitter boots are my new favourite item in my wardrobe, I wear them with everything, I like to think it adds an edginess to my outfits. The skirt I grabbed the other day before meeting Lydia Bright from Topshop, I am always a little worried about wearing skirts with a dip hem because of my hips and little legs but I really love this skirt, my studded leather jacket is also a bargain from Topshop, I am going to have to sell my old h&m leather jacket as it is now too big for me, so keep your eyes peeled for my next sale. 

I find it is always nice to get properly dressed when I am working I think I feel far more motivated when I feel like I am actually dressed as if I am going out. I have heard from alot of other freelancers and self-employed people that they also do this, to make them feel like they are going to work. I do love working from the comfort of my studio.

In other news my red hair is very red at the moment, I am loving the change of hair colour, soon to be brunette though. I am rather excited about sending out all my new orders! If you fancy a little valentines card for your loved one or a cool tote my shop has lots of wonderful things in.
