Off out to dinner with the girls for one of my best friends birthday dinner. I never get the opportunity to get dressed up, I’m normally sat on the train doing work to and from university, in the comfiest clothes I can find.

Dungarees have been in every store these past few years. Each season brings a new twist to the game. I’m really into this trend but did’t want to look like every Bert and Harry walking down the street in dungarees so I scooped up this little gem from a vintage kilo sale.
A denim pinafore.
If you’ve not been to a kilo sale you have to go, you pay by the weight of the item and come away with something no one else has. They are the perfect way of sprucing your wardrobe without hitting the bank to hard.
I went full 90’s mixing the denim pinafore with a striped t-shirt, trainers and colourful sport socks. The a-line dress with the pockets is so 90’s and the little strap on the side.

Have you guys been on the Bournemouth Wheel yet? the views are spectacular.
I love the yellow of my sunglasses mixed with the yellow of my top and finished off with my yellow gold shoes. A super yellow themed outfit. Yellow isn’t a colour I thought I could get away with, with my hair and skin tone but I absolutely love the combo.
I can’t take these shoes off, they are so beautiful, I think they spice up any outfit. I get the odd compliment when I wear them too, which is a bonus.
I made this silk holder top out of a vintage scarf when i was about 16 and love it. The vibrant yellow/green and the bold flower pattern are a needed statement to this outfit.

I unconsciously dressed to match the weather, the fog has been around all day. So this ootd post looks very moody, and my hair looks extra bright. Golden hair, golden shoes.
I love wearing blue, can you tell? It’s one of my favourite colours and I can’t get enough. My cardigan is a new edition too, it’s a family cardigan. (that sounds odd) My grandma, aunty and mum have all worn it and now it’s mine to wear. I love it to pieces. It looks like late 80’s /early 90’s knit with its heart panels.

Mix and match vibrant colours in the photography studio at uni. Poppy and I stayed after class was over to take outfit photos. Most of this outfit is vintage, either from charity shops or vintage fairs. The little golf broach I’ve had for years.

The Curly Haired Girl turned one of the 21st of April! Last year I wasn’t happy with the content I was creating on my old blog, I didn’t know what my next move was. How was I to move forward with my old content lurking around? I couldn’t, so I made the bold step to start again, from scratch!!
thecurlyhariedgirl.org.uk was launched and I started to think about what I wanted to share more seriously.
My plans for Year Two: Go to more blogger events and to start university in September, and get my hair sorted so that I’m happy with it.
Fortunately the 21st was also date night, so myself and the boy headed to 7Bone in Bournemouth I ordered the Shuffle to the Straight Time and he went for Prince Charles is overrated.
The money shot! ( a little on the cold side but it was packed so it’s ok) Of course I had the dirty fries, I want bottles and bottles of the stuff.
dress – Boohoo < almost identical
jacket- Vintage similar
bag- vintage Calvin Klein similar
thank you for reading for a whole year!!!!
If you have followed over from my old blog you would have already known that I can sew. I don’t have the time to do much now, which really disappoints me, but I’m making an effort to get back into it.
This is the dress I made for my final A-level exam a couple of years ago. I loved making this dress, spending 3 days in silence sewing and creating. It was total heaven!
My inspiration came from shattered and broken glass and mirrors. I used thick denim (now very crumpled from being stored away) as gagged pieces and the squares are the reflective pieces of glass and mirror. Each piece of denim and broken glass are completely different. Glass shatters in chaos
(deep I know)
I saw something similar to this on my first trip to Topshop in Oxford street. I couldn’t afford the top which was about £30 so with the help of my mum I made this instead. It’s a vintage scarf cut in half then sew together to make a wrap holter top. I’ve worn it so so much. It’s started to get faded but the sun now but it makes me love it all the more.
Thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me, style posts will resume soon.
Love Amelia, XO.
