I’ve finally figuratively gotten back on the horse, and started sewing again. While I still love some serious colour blocking, I’m also feeling more into prints, more specifically cotton sateen prints. Haven’t had enough time to shoot all the skirts I’ve made over the past couple of days but here’s a preview of things to comeThese days finding the right balance between what’s appropriate for work and what I enjoy wearing is getting a lot easier. Thanks to a love blazers and heels from a young age!

Please let me first apologise for the quality of these photos. These days I’d be lucky to get any natural light after returning home from work, taking outfit photos on self timer just seemed like far too much effort(I actually put out a call for someone with ANY photography prowess to come and take my blog photos everyday on twitter, alas no takers). Feeling the guilt of not blogging for over a month, I begged mum to take my outfit photo, forgetting mother’s photography skills are-and limited to-; taking pictures of food she cooks, taking pictures of my food and taking pictures of paddocks while on the train all of which are done on her blackberry. I am very grateful to her however that I have anything to show at all after screwing up the setting on my DSLR trying to capture the insanely beautiful, bright moon (is there a magic reset button on my Nikon D3000 that I can jab a pin into?) Anyway, I am loving purple lately.Cashmere jumper: Designed by me, knitted in homeland//scarf: zaraBi-colour chiffon skirt: My own design//Taffetta jacket: Huckabees//Patent mary-janes: LFDM//Rings: gifts and eBay//Bag: LFDM//Scarf: Gifted
