So I managed to forget my keys the other day which resulted in me sitting on my front step in the glorious Scottish sunshine (honestly, it was beautiful.) I decided to make a few sketches of what people were wearing in my tutorial that morning. I didn't colour them because I think it would have ruined the pen-work.

I wore a multicoloured H&M kimono, with a sky-blue Gap linen shirt and fringed TopShop necklace. It was beautifully sunny out so I wanted to wear something to suit. We're studying Klimt at the moment and I think it may have affected my poses more than I realised.
This girl in my class always turns up to 10am tutorials with a full face of make-up, which I admire as I often barely have time to shower after early morning training. I love that her outfit was entirely black, but heavily textured. She paired a slouchy grey tee with a chunky shearling gilet and minute black Levi hot pants. 

One of my friends wore this last week with a variation this week. It's a black, textured, full circle skirt from H&M. I love that she paired it with a mint t-shirt in the same texture. This week she wore the skirt with a simple grey t-shirt. It shows how versatile the shape is and I liked how she paired the textures in block colours.

A few weeks back I mentioned that I had written an article for FashionVent. Bizarrely they chose to not use the sketch I provided (you'd think if you ask a fashion illustration blogger...) so here it is.

I hope you are all having a great week. I'm having a dissertation break to get some sketching done.
