Festival Fever

Summer time = festival time  for alot of us.
Glastonbury has been on this weekend, as I'm sure you all know! :)
I thought I would share some of the outfits worn over the weekend
  

Tali Lennox

Alice Dellal

Cara Delevigne

Alexa Chung



Personally I love Alexa Chungs looks the most, but of the other three Cara Delevigne is my favourite.

Although some of us may not be going to a festival it doesn't mean we can't be inspired by these looks, just replace the mac with a blazer/cardigan and the wellies with some sandals.


Just a few items you can find on the highstreet.

Also I have been on Teen Vogues best dressed reader of the day (very happy!!)

See the page here

Also thankyou very much to my new followers!

Diy Shorts

Hello my lovelies
I just wanted to let you know what I've been up to over the past few days. I've been spending alot of my time working on the denim shorts and the website to sell them on.

Not a great photo but these are the pairs I'm working on at the moment.

The tartan pair I am planning on adding some black lace trim to the bottom of the leg and possibly on the back pockets.

And the bottom pair of shorts I plan to bleach the bottom half of them.

Sellinh some items here:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Orchid-Clothing/242877269058220

 Also the shorts that I have at the moment are a waist measurment of  26 or 27 (purely to allow me to model them) but I will be purchasing different sizes to sell.

If anybody is interested or would like to request a size please email me at:

Both my old and New followers. I really appreciate you reading my blog! :) 
Now I've reached 50, I will hopefully be doing a giveaway very soon.Today I dont have much to say other than I spent about £70 at the Topshop sale.
Eeeeek


I got the scallop top in grey.


I got this colour and a black one.
They are so cute!


I also got myself two new necklaces and two rings! But there are no photos on the Topshop website at the moment.
The sale is pretty good so I would suggest checking it out! :)


I have also been meaning to say a thankyou to the lovely Rachel, for taking time to interview me for her blog!

Sewing Machine

Today I'm off into town to buy my sewing mchine from John Lewis!! So excited,  now I have lots of spare time I can get on with some of my DIY projects. I've just opened an Etsy account to sell some of my items on! :)


Clearly I wont be able to start straight away as I've not used a sewing machine in years!
So I will need the practice but in the mean time I plan on doing some customised Levis Shorts.
 Would any of you be interested in purchasing any of these style shorts?

(Sources are linked, if not they are images taken from Ebay)

I've already invested in a few pairs of vintage Levis jeans to cut up and accessorise

Style Find : Colour Blocking

I've decided to do a post on the trend of blocking clashing colours, I know this isn't a particularly new trend but I wanted to share with you some places that you can get some colourful clothes on the highstreet.

(just click the numbers below to find the item)


Zara




1)  2)  3)  4)  5)  6)  7)  8)







Topshop





1)  2)  3)  4)  5)  6)  7)  8)  9)  10)




Miss Selfridge








1)  2)  3)  4)  5)  6)  7)  8)  9)  10)  11)  12)


My personal favourite item is the Yellow Flippy skirt from Topshop.
What do you think about colour blocking and what items to you have/want?


One problem I had with the colour blocking is imagining how it would look and how to wear it without having to invest in a whole new wardrobe.


So I wanted to share with you the lovely Konstantina Tzagaraki from Lookbook:

Her looks are amazing, so if you aren't already following, find her here and Fan her to keep up to date with her looks :)

Violent Lips

This post is about the temporary tatoos available for your lips by "Violent Lips" as seen on the likes of JessieJ.



I'm so excited for these ones to become available:




Shop range here:

http://www.violentlips.com/collections/all


 Visit the blog on their website for tips on how to apply : 

Here! :)



Recently I tried out the pink roses. I was so excited to try them out. Sadly I applied them a little wrong, as not all of my lip was covered (i cut the tattoo smaller than it needed to be), So if you intend to invest in some of these then do follow the tips!


I don't think my lips went too badly for my first time! I went out for a night out to celebrate the end of exams.



Split Sleeve blouse - Topshop

Shorts - Topshop






 Hope enjoy browsing the violent lips! :)

Happy Happy Happy

Hello my lovelies!
Incase your wondering why I'm so happy, today is my last exam!! Finally, I can have my social life back again, as well as having more time to spend on making my blog more interesting!
First of all I got a maxi skirt from the Next website for £9!!

Also recently dyed my hair darker : 

sorry for the mugshot

I was thinking of going 'ombre'. I know a little behind, but my hair is only just long enough now I think. I'm still not sure about the length, however Alexa Chung pulls it off well with shorter hair (but what cant she pull off)


I would love your opinion as to whether or not this colour would suit me! :)

Also please if you do have a moment spare could you follow the link below to vote for me on the "next" model 2011 competition, it only takes a minute of your time. It would mean alot if I got through to the top 250!!

vote for me here :)

p.s) My blog will be improving with time, still a little bit of a newbie! :)
