I was bored on my day off the other day and decided to Facebook stalk myself. I'm vain like that. I was initially intrigued to see how I've changed, but I noticed that my style has evolved. I say evolved, I'm not sure if it's better or worse. But I know that I wish I had the guts and figure to pull off half the things that I did. During Sixth Form I stopped playing sport and my growth spurt was slowing down so I quickly put on weight. It's only been in the last two years that I've started dressing up as much as I used to. I think it's to do with improved body confidence. I say that, but I genuinely have no idea.
A big change between me four years ago, me two years ago, and me now is that I'm shedding layers. I used to love wearing complex outfits of multiple layers whereas now I happily flash skin at any opportunity.
So here are some sketches...
So that's a quick run-through of my sartorial Facebook history. It's strange that I've gone from a distinctly feminine and vibrant style to one based around neutral tones and masculine shapes.
I hope you're having a good week!

I've been working in the kids section a bit more recently and so I've been looking at childrenswear a bit more. Some of the children that come in are seriously stylish and so I made a few doodles...
Working in the kids section you get some absolute blighters, but this girl was so polite and grown-up despite having just turned seven. It was her birthday last week... Her dress was adorable and I really wish they made them in my size! A 1950s style circle dress with a navy sequined head band. It was the colours and print that really appealed to me as stars never look tired as a print and the crimson with the bright turquoise was just sartorial perfection.
I hope you're all having a good week. I'm enjoying a well-deserved lie-in on my day off, watching Absolutely Fabulous and attempting to get some dissertation research done.
