A Dreaded Sunny Day

Today I finally picked up my laptop for repair after spilling diet coke on it last week, so I can blog more frequently again. Emily took these photos of me in the local cemetery on Monday.

I finally bought some Vegan Doc Martens with my birthday money and I adore them. I have been wearing them a lot which I think is something that you have to do when you buy Doc Martens for the first time. My flower crown is homemade, my pearls are a present from Antonio and the other necklace is a present from Emily. The cardigan is from H&M, the shirt is from Forever 21 and the shorts are from Republic.

I've spent this week working a lot on my zine. You can still buy the first two issues here.

Ruffled Blouses

In the 1700s, whilst women were still restricted to wearing tight corsets and heavy gowns, men were wearing ruffled shirts. By the mid 1800s, during the Industrial Revolution, men began to favour more basic attire and the ruffled shirts slowly disappeared. Today, however, it is more acceptable for women to wear ruffled blouses. The ruffled details are seen as feminine and they are now available in a range of colours, patterns and fabrics.
