Bonjour! Quick outfit post before I leave to stay at my auntie's house for a week.

I borrowed this beautiful skirt from my sister, and now I really want one for myself. I love the flowy-ness of the chiffon and the huge variety of colours that it's available in. Unfortunately, I can't afford to be spending £52 on a skirt, but if I could, I so would. So I'm planning a trip to my local fabric shop soon and stock up on some chiffon in a couple of colours and make my own DIY version of the skirt. I have already made one for my sister and it turned out ok, but now I know exactly what to do to make it perfect :) When I make it, I may do a post of how I made the skirt, and maybe even a video tutorial. Also, I'm planning to do a video on another little DIY I did a few months ago, as requested by one of my twitter followers.

Now I probably won't post until next week, so I shall say my farewells and goodbyes. FAREWELL AND GOODBYE!

  6. This is my favourite of your outfits this month!! Everything is so chic and perfectly coordinated! I love those American Apparel chiffon skirts too but I am resisting the urge to buy because of the price...especially after getting myself the oversized chiffon shirt! And with amazing basics you always want one in every colour *sigh*
