I am a Creator………

Struttlamode.blogspot.com

Heyheyhey……This is not an outfit post babes, I’m having a meltdown and have been wearing pretty much the same pair of jeans and two diff jumpers on off all week. I’m a secret slob. Well I’m not but I have my days when I just can not be bovved with dressing.....I think its down to having a cold you know…Feeling blah….

Anyways if this is not an outfit post it can only be one other thing ay…. Another one of my own works. And yess more leopard, I know I said no more leopard as its becoming a silly obsession but I made these about a month ago so forgive me. I made the top from a really soft cotton and has slight gathering at the neck and on the sleeves. The skirt is PVC.… It’s not dissimilar to the styles you can find on the high street at the mo but I pick and fuss at little details on the high-street styles. I do not like the way many of the leather/PVC skirts on the high street have a really fugly zip on show or are not quite as high waisted as I’d prefer and they are maybe a little tight on the legs too. I have made mine very slightly more A-Line as….. well I don’t know why it just looks cooler, it is slightly more high waist than a typical ‘High Waist’ and you can barely see it has a zip which is at the side, the lining is also from the same fabric as the top which I thought was quite fun…. It’s the little things I love…….

  4. I have had a horrid cold too and know the feeling of reaching for the same warm jumpers all the time. Love your outfit, do you have an online shop of your creations? If not you should definitely start one. Even if it's just on ebay. xx

  32. Why does your fringe never have annoying gaps in it like mine? It's so frustrating!
    You have a real eye for design, I hope to see more of this in the future! Keep it up, you have a real talent.
