You don't always need a reason to create...

 "We live not according to reason, but according to fashion."
 - Seneca

I keep telling myself not to by any more fabric until I finish what I've already got. 
But what can you do when you find a great fabric on sale? 
I found this when me and Ellen were looking for her ball dress fabric. 
I was inspired to create a jumper that would be warm but make some of my more basic clothing combos a bit more interesting.
Here's the result :)







nail polish - Trout Pout by BUTTER London 
necklace - parachute necklace from Amazon
shoes and clutch - asos
ring - Lovisa

I also got out of the bottom of my jewelry box a wire project I haven't worn in a while. I can't remember where the inspiration came from, but it was fun to make.
It's not long now until my exams are over, and I can't wait to get started on some
 of those DIY projects I have lined up. 
Maybe I could do a DIY post?
Let me know in the comments :)
