From Primark with love

Last night, I had such a great time at Rachel Kerr's live concert for the launch of her EP - Back To Music. It was such a fun, entertaining, inspirational and emotional  night for many reasons. Rachel and her team pulled all the stops! I was priviledged to design her wardrobe for the night. Will share more about this experience when I get my hands on some photos. But in the meantime, look for her, she's about to blow! Of course I wore one of my creations to the concert:)

Yes this photo was taken in the summer lol I'm not mad. I made this out of somewhat frustration. Here's the story: A friend of mine came round really late on a saturday night and we decided to quickly go and buy a new outfit for church the next day lol. The only shop that was still open at the time was primark -_- so I got this in a size 12:
So tell me why I struggled to get into this dress, no thanks to the 10inch or less side zip -_- bad tailoring decision if you ask me. Anyway I finally got into it and I wasnt too keen on the fit. Taking it off was another struggle, this time involving a rip :( so I ripped it off completely. I took off the top half, trimmed the waist line of the skirt with bias binding and replaced the zip. So yay me I had a new skirt.

I quickly whipped up a top to go with it, with some velvet fabric I already had at home. Luckily, I had matching trimming and the buttons were an additional blessing too. So let's just say I overcame my primark purchase disaster. I hope u like the outcome :)

I miss my auburn hair, dye has faded out to golden brown now. I wore this outfit with a blazer (from primark) and tights last night to protect me from the cold.

It was a great night! Note to self: I need a camera pronto!!
Till Next Post
