Guess since I can talk about it without crying, I can probably say it now. Kaede and I split up on Christmas. It's....more and less painful than I imagined simultaneously. Ha.

But it freed me up a lot of time to work on my clothes, since the shipments arrived the day after and now I have sewn 13 outfits for the fashion show and have plenty of time to work on edits or redoing them completely. Like a rough draft, but not. They look pretty cool, if I say so myself. Quite out-there, so they'll definitely be noticed, but not completely ridiculous like other fashion show stuff.

I've always wondered about that. I mean, I get that it's a way to let out your creativity instead of just following the trends for the rest of the year, but most of the stuff that the models wear, make them look like nutjobs. It weirds me out. I mean, I bet the designers wouldn't ever want to wear most of their designs.

Anyway, thanks so much to everybody and their presents. They're all really amazing :)

I guess since it's December, I can officially post up most of the winter trends today~! I love winter fashion, it's so much more modest than summer and I love lots of layers~

Woollen leggings, infinity scarves, and thick, faux-wool coats are all the rage. Give a beret and some earmuffs a try and don't forget the retro sweater-dress, which is apparently making a revival. Thermals are a must, especially since people are saying it's going to snow, so get some really nice ones that look good! Good ones are turtlenecks or rollnecks, that protect your throat~ And corduroy trousers can keep you really warm as well.

Boots are also probably good as the weather gets colder. Get nice leather ones, not those fabricky ones that fall apart at the first hint of rain. Hiking boots were all the rage at the Milan show, especially, which is awesome since they're really comfy too! And I love leather gloves with touch-screen sensitive tips! Makes going on your phone in the cold a lot easier~

Colourwise, grey and claret are in this season. Electric blue is as well....though I'd avoid that. The better colour is a nice baby blue.
