I’m baaack! It’s been such a long time since I last blogged but my final year at university has been so stressful and so I needed time out. Being the perfectionist I am, looking back over my blog actually irritates me because I follow so many great bloggers who take photographs that look professional in appearance whereas mine looks so amateur! I’m the type of person who starts over completely if things don’t go perfect first time but I thought I’d leave my current posts as they will hopefully show a period of development in the future.
What has also been frustrating is coming across trends I have wanted to comment on but I had to prioritise my dissertation along with exam revision. The usual third year stress. This did not mean I completely forgot about the blogging scene, no! In fact, my last assignment was to hold an exhibition where I showcased my contributions to the likes of Bonafide Supernova and Student Fashion Blog – both stations providing me quintessential skills in writing and reviewing as a fashion industry practitioner.
My fellow English and Media specialists and I decided to host a tea party themed exhibition titled The Writers’ Corner. I was absolutely astounded when I received my grade for this assignment as I managed to achieve 85% (a first in uni terminology). Yayy! I Guess I can pitch well after all! 😀
I needed something smart casual to wear to the exhibition and the weather was horrid that day so I decided to put my blog post on tartan treats from last year into action. My original idea was to wear my tartan trousers with a grey roll neck and oxblood accessories but since I couldn’t find one anywhere, I decided to borrow this black one from my sister. She bought this roll neck sweater years and years ago from Primark back when they weren’t so trendy. The strappy sandals were a birthday gift from my lovely friend and I purchased the necklace from Republic’s closing down sale for something ridiculously cheap!
