It is Style Me Thursdays, where I look at an alternative style and try to recreate it and today I am looking at the Japanese fashion, Decora. From the dark colours of Nu-Goth last week I thought I would bring some brightness by looking at the crazy fun that is Decora.
I have created a challenge for myself to look into, learn and play around with different alternative styles, Style Me Thursdays. Every Thursday I thought it would be fun to look into a different style. I think as well as learning about new fashions I will also be add new things to my own wardrobe. My own style changes a lot I find myself buying things that I like rather than fitting in with a certain aesthetic. I am also going make an item of clothing or accessory that will go with that style.
So today I am going to look into a relatively new fashion style….
So last weekend I went to a vintage fair in the small town near me. It was great fun even though I was expecting a lot more stalls. Sadly I stupidly forgot to take any pictures of the event itself despite me taking my camera! I did however get a picture of me all dressed up in my outfit.
With cute eyeliner flicks and bright red lippy to create that 40s look.

Day 26 and it is make a mismatched outfit which I would never wear. I thought I would try and still make it my style with the blouses and jumper and cute necklace, but with clashing and garish colours.
So a couple of weeks I made a post about my latest shopping trip buying some cute jumpers from H & M featuring some outfits I made with them like this one.
Apart from that and groceries I have brought one of those blender foam things that everyone on youtube is raving over. Apart from I got a pound one rather than one of those £8 ones, because there cant be much between them. I mean they are just foam..right? I might finally buy that Ouija top I have going on about this week too and do an outfit on it after my 30 day challenge 🙂

New outfit of the day for you guys! Using my newly made purple skirt as the inspiration behind this coord.
In this blog post I will be reviewing Lindy Bops ‘Adalene Green Alpine’ skirt, which I managed to snap up at the sale for just £13. I will also be adding an outfit idea at the end.
For Christmas I asked my fiancee to design some fabric for me using my old birdy friends in a repeating border print. Which I later sewed into a box pleated skirt.
