Overalls Obsession

My current style must have this month has to be dungarees, or overalls, as the Americans call them.
I've noticed them creeping back into to style over the past year with stars like Alexa Chung championing them but I fear I'd look more "come on Eileen" than Alexa...

Here are some of my favourites...



Dungaree dress from Free People

Advanced Style

Ilonna Royce Smithkin and all the ladies and gents of Ari Seth Cohen provide endless inspiration to me, a lot of the ladies make their own hats, clothes and accessories... Ilonna even makes her own fake eyelashes!
Watching the video below always brightens my day and makes me dress for me!
One thing I always notice about the Advanced Style ladies is their love for hats.
Hats are something I bought a lot of but didn't really wear until my internship with Chrissie at Hat Therapy where I make and look at so many beautiful hats everyday that I can't help but want to wear them all.

Snow Days

 I don't know about you but I for one am sick of this snow!
I am however enjoying rediscovering these vintage work boots I bought a couple of years ago in New York, they may be scruffy and water stained but they're warm and I think they look good with my hiking socks... plus I don't slip on the ice, which feels like a miracle for someone as clumsy as me.

First Post

Hello there!
For my first post I thought I'd tell you a little about myself, I'm Holly, a textiles print student at Huddersfield, originally from Bolton and currently on my placement year in Hebden Bridge with milliner Chrissie King of Hat Therapy.

I hope you'll enjoy reading my blog and hopefully seeing some of my design work.
