Denim workshop with BooHoo

So the lovely ladies at Boohoo invited me down to Boohoo HQ to get out customisation on, we were given the option of three denim jackets in three different styles and colours, we were told we could customise one jacket with anything that was on the table, there were so many patches to choose from, pens, paints and sand paper.

There were a few lovely ladies who were designers for BooHoo that were distressing a few jackets and customising and showing the styles that we could create, I decided to roll up the sleeves and use some metal studs to give it a little rock chic vibe and also I hate wearing long sleeves, the  jacket I decided to opt for was a black long length denim jacket with a detachable fur collar, the night was really lovely because I was able to spend time with some new and old faces. We sat around sewing, ironing and painting while having a good gossip and we totally discussed our opinions on trump while sewing all the sassiest of quotes onto our jackets. Felt way more like a trendy WI meeting then a Blog event.

When I got home I wasn't 100% happy with what I had drawn on the back so I cut up the tote bag that the jacket came in and I got painting, I am a little obsessed with hands at the moment and I got doodling late into the night, I had patches and studs all along the front lapels but I removed these ready to be sewn and ironed on the back, it was lovely to be able to get back into customising something simple like a denim jacket and really anyone can create a really unique piece for cheap.
