These tights managed to cause a fair bit of confusion amongst my friends, which I would like to clear up once and for all: I do NOT have thigh tattoos. But the tights are awesome, right? xx

So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Adieu

Tonight was more than a little bittersweet. On the plus side, I spent a lovely evening with all the wonderful people I have met whilst living at the ILC and we all got to get dressed up 1920s style for our Great Gatsby themed party, but on the other hand the night was really about saying goodbye to those who won’t be coming back next quarter. It’s a strange feeling, thinking about coming back to Santa Cruz in January and not seeing those people almost every day. Bon voyage! xx

All My Own Work

I’m not even going to try and pretend that this post isn’t about me showing off a fair bit. I spent last weekend on a vintage-style dressmaking course and I am incredibly proud of my creation. Sure, it’s not perfect and I am still pretty slow with the sewing machine, but I think it turned out pretty well for my first attempt at most of the techniques used and I can certainly see myself wearing this rather a lot xx
