DIY Skirt & A Happy New Year!

'What have you done today, Megan?' you might ask.  Well, I made a skirt.  The one in the outfit and it cost me a total of £3 to produce.  Much cheaper then going to Topshop or the like for something similar...I'm so happy with it!
I've just filmed my Christmas haul and within that you will see that I got a sewing machine for Crimbo.  I've wanted one for a good few years to make my own clothes and try and save money (as I'm dreadful at saving :-( )  So yeah, since Christmas (bearing in mind I was away for 3 days - machine-less!) I've made this skirt, another one, in a different fabric, a pair of shorts, 2 bags and a few random things.  Pretty good going I say!
I went to the fabric shop a few days ago and got the houndstooth print fabric along with some crushed velvet but I'm still wondering what to do with the velvet.  I could make another skirt (from Toppers the equivalent would be £30 odd) or a really nice pair of shorts... I'd love to learn how to make a blazer so I could make a velvet shorts suit.  That would be so cool!  But I imagine blazers are  very difficult...Maybe I'll ask my sewing teacher to help me.  Or if you guys know, comment, it would be so helpful!
Anyway, I'm loving my new tshirt too!  I wore it with some amazing leather trousers I got in the Topshop sale and my mum said I looked like I was from Wham....Hmm.  My bag is new as well and despite it being really quite boxy and feeling plastic-y, it's gorgeous.  What else do you expect from Primark, though?  It was such a bargain at £12 I couldn't resist.
Oh, and I decided not to crop all of my room out of the photos as I really don't like just having a rectangle for an outfit photo, I'd rather have my messy room in the picture!  I really should start taking pictures elsewhere....Oh well!
I hope you guys have all had a brilliant Christmas and as it's the 31st of December, a fantastic New Year!  I'm really looking forward to spending it with all of my friends, yay!  What are you guys doing and what are you wearing?  I'll definitely get some pictures of my evening and my outfit up in the next few days.  Maybe, I'll post my resolutions and look back at them this time in 2013.

Love you all loads!

Vibing the 90's

Jumper/vintage//Jeans/Ebay originally Topshop//Belt/Vintage//Boots/New Look//Lipstick in Beguiled by Topshop//

Hello my lovlies!  I'm so excited to be writing to you guys!  I missed blogging frequently over the last month.  I haven't been doing good enough.  But I do have a reason...  I'll get onto that in a minute, I think you'll be happy!
When I put this outfit on I was really feeling a grungey 90's vibe so I chose this vintage jumper with my gorgeous boyfriend jeans (that I won for a steal of £5 on Ebay).  Unfortunately when they arrive I realised they are atleast 4 inches too big, so I've belted them for the time being but as soon as I get my sewing machine on Tuesday/Christmas day (SO freaky how quickly Christmas has come around!)  I will be taking them in.  Depending on if the machine comes with a thicker needles suitable for denim...If not then it will have to wait for me to get one.  If any of you are avid sewers, do any of you know if machines come with more that one type of needle?  Let me know.
Anyway, yeah I tried to girl-y it up with the boots, but really I just wore them because they kind of look like heeled chelsea boots from the front and I'm lusting over that kind of shoe right now.  I've moved on from court shoes and boyfriend jeans now that I have both those things and now need heeled chelsea boots!  Hello January sales....
Please excuse my hair, I've jus arrived home from the last day of school.  No lessons, just sitting in tutor with some of my pals that I've become great friends with over the last 5 years at school before some certificates and awards are given out in an assembly, before all the teachers dress up in stupid costumes and do funny dances/sing songs to current chart songs and so on as a sort of goodbye to the year 11's (me!!) and the rest of the school kind of all sit in a watch from the back.  Anyway, it was rather fun and I didn't really focus on my hair remaining neat so...yes.

Back to my original point!  Why I haven't been here?  I've been setting up the content for my new website - Rarity Fashion.  Rarity is going to be just that.  Fashion.  In a pretty little website focussing on all sorts.  So I've been busy planning that out with some lovely ladies writing for it as well as planning the layout and writing myself.  I'll do a separate post on it when there's more for you.  Follow Rarity on Twitter @rarityfashion or email us at

If I don't get to posting anything before Christmas I wish you all a very very fantastic-ly Merry Christmas!  Hope you have the most amazing, lovely Christmas ever!
Lots of love

Burgundy, Metal Toed Perfection

"Megan, where on earth did you find those stunning shoes; by far the nicest pair that you own?"  You might ask me.  Well of all places...Matalan.  I don't tend to shop in Matalan, but when I went to meet a few friends and they ventured in there I found my babies and my heart skipped multiple beats.  Especially when I saw the price.  £5.  Yes, I did type that correctly.
I thought I needed to share these beauties with my lovely ladies (and gents).  I'm waiting on a pair of androgynous boyfriend jeans in the post, to be paired with plain tees, shirts, turtle-necks...and the delightful jumper that my handsome boyfriend is getting me for Christmas.  Oh, the dreams.  It's okay, because Christmas is a mere 8 days away!  Horray!

lots of love my little sprinkles (I don't even know, okay...)

Cute LBD: 3 Ways video

So guys, this is a video I posted on my Youtube account (click on the video and it will take you there) a week or so ago, featuring the black Romwe dress I posted about a few posts down.  I styled it in 3 ways for different occasions; smart yet nice, a party and casual look.  Hope you like it and don't forget to leave feedback!

Black, Gold & a little bit of Faux Fur

Peplum/H&M//Jeans/Topshop//Shoes/Topshop//Leather Jacket/Motel Rocks//Faux Fur Stole/Topshop/Lipstick/Topshop in Beguiled//

I'm well aware this outfit it beyond boring, but in a way, I really liked the simplicity and sophistication of it in all of it's plain black glory.  But then again, some of the most amazing outfits can be all black.  Think Valentino AW12 and Dolce and Gabbana with the gold & black shoes (post on the HOTTIES very soon).
    As the outfit I was all black, I felt like having a tad more fun when editing (although all I do is play with colours and use crop!) and went for a blue-y theme today.  Don't worry, this isn't going to be a regular occurrence, it's just a bit of fun.
   I wore this outfit to go to a friends house for the evening, so it was very casual but I think you could smarten this up with maybe a blazer, some heels and some tapered trousers rather than jeans.
I'm thinking of doing a smart worky/school look book?  What do you guys think?  Leave me comments with what you think!
There's also a video for this look and when it's up, I'll leave a link here for you!
