This year has been so hectic and it's flown by! - It feels like only yesterday was the beginning of the summer!
I hope 2013 will be just as exciting with lots of new and exciting things for this blog!
Today's post is in two parts. As it's new years Eve, later I will post my outfit for the night, but first the next part of the 12 days of Christmas.
It's a simple idea that was sparked from the story of the Ugly Duckling! Embellishment can make an outfit and add a personal touch and the simplest way is to change buttons to make the garment look more expensive.
So take a plain old cardigan as the ugly duckling! You can buy loads of buttons from a haberdashery and they're usually under a £. Simply remove the old, boring buttons and sew on the new ones...Now you have a new cardigan that's transformed into a beautiful Swan! - There's no need to buy a new cardigan when you can just alter an old one!
Skirt, Top, Jacket - Topshop, Shoes - New Look, Clutch - Lancome (as part of a beauty gift set)
This skirt I found in the sale recently and its perfect for the tartan trend. The top I'm wearing with it was a peplum but it looked better tucked in. - I'm all ready, can't wait for the new year!
