Holiday Outfits: Day Seven



Dress- DIY, Sandals- Topshop, Glasses- Brighton Laines, Spike Cuff- Shop Dixi, Hand Bracelet- Topshop

So here we have the last of my holiday outfit posts series and my hagrid hair is in full steam! 

First of all my mum wanted to make sure I tell everyone that she was extremely touched by your lovely comments about the kimono she made in yesterday's post. She's having a bit of a confidence crisis at the mo and this gave her a huge boost so thank you :)

After seeing a tie dye dress on tumblr which was AMAZING I thought I would try to attempt making one myself. Rather than hand dying it the original way I thought I would get more precision using spray dyes. I bought a neon pack of 4 off amazon and was expecting that to last me loads of dresses (which I was then going to sell) however they ran out right towards the end and were a pain in the arse to use as they kept leaking everywhere but overall I was pretty pleased with the outcome but decided not to make any more to sell as it was so time consuming!

I'm quite sad this holiday series has come to an end as I was getting into the swing of posting every day and also it means I have to let go of my holiday a little more :( lol. I'm going back to uni soon so probably won't be able to post as frequently. I am thinking about starting a 'style bible of the month' post which is similar to the blogger of the month posts that I've seen on lots of blogs which I really enjoy, would you be interested in this? I don't know whether to do just one blog I currently love or more?

Sorry that I've chatted on quite a lot today haha!

  5. Sorry I haven't been commenting on all your outfits (been a bad blogger recently) but ALL your summer outfits are AMAZING. You have the best dress sense ever I could die. It's not fair, one on holiday shouldn't look so stylish! Your mum's design was FABULOUS, tell her that. And this dress you made yourself? So so so talented. I want one!! Make my clothes. Please. You look amazing
