Welcome back to the 80s babyy!

Thought i would share with you all my latest 80s blazer! For Textiles, our brief was to make a garment of your choice from an era of your choice. I chose the 80s because I LOVE the way the style was bold and everything they wore was in order to make a statement. I decided to make a blazer because the 80s was when 'Power Dressing' was created, women wore suits in the office to show that they were just as important as men at work...GO WOMEN!
I altered my pattern piece to make it double breasted and changed the sleeves to make it ruched by sewing elastic in the sleeve. I'm not going to lie, it was stressful making a blazer, I didn't realize how complicated it would be to make! But i got there in the end..Hope you like the final outcome :D
I styled my blazer with a crisp white shirt, skinny jeans (HM) and my black heels (Shoedazzle)
Here are my photos from my photo shoot

STYLE CRUSH...Jennifer Lawrence

Yesterday I went and saw The Hunger Games with my little brother as it was Orange Wednesday..(2 tickets for 1)..BOOM! I have got to say it was incredible, I loved every moment of it! I'd definitely recommend you see the film if you haven't already. So, this weeks style crush is Jennifer Lawrence who plays the female lead Katniss Everdeen. I love that she wears such daring and figure hugging dresses, which highlight her envious curvy figure! The Ralph Lauren shimmering halterneck dress compliments her skin tone beautifully. One of my favourites of hers has to be the Prabal Gurung gold dress; it's so bold and I adore the cut out detail.
Not only is she stunning, but she was brilliant in the film, and I think she's definitely one for the future!
Has anyone else seen the film?

I think it's fair to say i have been an extremely bad blogger recently...3 weeks since my last post *hang my head in shame*, but don't worry this girl is back and definitely back for good!
Finally Easter half term has arrived, and although it means no school, i will however be revising majority of the time for my AS level exams (boring!). BUT, no school means more time for blogging..YIPPEEEE!
Yesterday was the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, which saw all the top stars turn out in their best gear. Here were some of my favourite outfits. What's your verdict?

Mad Men´s Kiernan Shipka
I love the simplicity of this powder pink dress, it's so cute on her!

Taylor Swift
This ivory, bustier detail gown is gorgeous on Taylor.

Selena Gomez
I love the bralet and miniskirt, the two piece look is one of my favourite trends at the moment and Selena rocks this look. I love that she chose to wear bright pink shoes. Mega style points indeed!!
