A little money goes a long way.....

So having the actual garments nearly finished my main concern is now styling. At progress reviews my tutors suggested styling outfit 2 (the knitdress ) very sexy and rockchicky.... they also mentioned putting a pair of Doc Martens with it, and since the menswear outfit is styled with a pair of them it seemed like a good idea. Only problem is that purchasing the amazingly printed fabric cost a little fortune and spending around 80€ on a pair of shoes for the show REALLY isn't an option.

So off I went to Penneys in search of a red bra( which they didn't have....boooooooooohhhhhh) and some footwear to customize. I got a pair of rip off converse for 6 euros. One hell of a price difference!

At home I started customizing them with fabric and beads and don't they look fab? I think they even look better than the Iron Maiden Vans! I'd love to be able to wear them but unfortunately the biggest size Penneys had was a 40. I'm a size 42.......ah well, at least I didn't have to spend another 80 quit just on the shoes!

If you do read my blog/follow it/ like it etc. feel free to leave me comments and praise my work :) I think I can be very proud of it!
