Hi there,

I know it has been awhile but I am currently making plans to ensure I have a post every new week at least. I hope I am able to achieve that, fingers crossed. It is full on spring here, almost summer and I am just trying to get all the winter clothes I made onto the blog asap so we can start spring and summer properly (super excited!). It has been a huge struggle to get pictures taken, from not having the time, especially during the week to not been able to find someone to help take pictures when I am finally less busy.As an aside, I am currently using iPhone speech to text function to write this post and I swear it is making my life so much more easier. I am currently in bed, under my duvet, eyes closed, writing this post, isn’t that amazing? If you can feel a touch of laziness in my writing style today, do not judge me, it has been a hectic week.So, back to the camel coat. For the longest, I mean the longest, I have been wanting a camel coat and you know how bloody expensive these coats can be, especially the camel colour. One day I visited one of my favourite fabric stores and luckily found this beautiful fabric and did not even hesitate for one minute before taking it to the cutting table and getting me some 2.5m. The right side of the fabric had a very smooth grain which I did not like, but the wrong side was just perfect. So I went with making the coat with the wrong side.I don’t remember how long it took me to finish it, I usually don’t like to count because it can be very depressing LOL. The finished result was amazing, the colour was fab, I totally loved the oversized look and as you might know, I am a sucker for extra long winter coats. I mean, if I could I would make myself one that reaches my ankle but that also comes with the risk of looking like a crazy person, yeah I know, I am not very brave ?. So I paired it with this jumpsuit I got from Zara awhile ago and added a white T-shirt to the mix. As many of you tall girls know, it is a huge struggle to find pants with the right length, long enough to cover your ankles, this is why I prefer to make my own clothes. I can choose to make it so long that it drags from one end of the street to another, it’s nobody’s business. For the first few weeks I owned this jumpsuit, I hated it so much because the fit wasn’t exactly perfect, I prefer a narrower thigh and a flare starting somewhere around the knee. But with time I had to get used to it because I wasn’t going to let my money go to waste and making anything denim can be a HUGE struggle, so I accepted my fate ?. So that’s it guys, I hope you like the outcome of everything, from coat to jumpsuit to my new hair (which I am so much in love with by the way), it was made with grey fiber (attachments). I got tired of hair touching my face and just went with cornrows which we call ‘Śuku’ (sp?) where I come from. Turned out fabulous!Oh by the way, I am thinking of adding a new segment to the blog so even when there are no outfits to post, I would still have some content. Any ideas on something I could write on? Please let me know in the comments section if you have any ideas, I would really really appreciate it, muah!!!
