9 Years and Still Trying, Lol! Designing for Fun… Well, Morelike Obsession?

I first started this blog as a creative outlet for fashion design as a hobby/competition and then branched out but I’ve kept up the designing and improved. The design process has gotten more and more convoluted but hey it keeps my skills limber though not my fingers!

The last time I wrote about it was exactly one year ago HERE (no I’m not posting this as an anniversary coincidence 😉 and no I still haven’t won anything, not even gotten through to the first stage/round of acceptance/processing!)

Nowadays drawing patterns and prints from scratch doesn’t really happen and those of us left mainly focus on alterations of base templates from each other.

Good day to y’all!

Here are my latest fashion/customer photo entries for posting a pic of yourself or someone you know wearing an item of Chicstar clothing. It’s a great way of getting discounted clothing, it can be fun and it’s also nice to see the clothing on different people.

Sheer Black Chiffon Blouse Top Chicstar

Red Jumpsuit Bolero Stretchy All In One Ruched Chicstar

Here the jumpsuit is worn with a matching bolero underneath and as the jumpsuit was a little big for me I twisted the straps and crossed them over the front. It was really humid that day hence I look a bit frazzled and sweaty, I’m not used to hot weather lol!

Here are the shop photos:

Retro Black White Satin Polka Dot Spot Belt Long Sleeve Top Chicstar

This is a fun top, I really enjoyed wearing it. The only issue is that it’s very loose and low cut, so if you tie it tightly at the back the open chest is pulled back wider and exposing more so you have to wear a top underneath. Also, when you tie it there’s a lot of extra fabric above the ties especially at the back. It’s ok but you just have to get used to it. I made this pic into a fun montage to represent the top’s retro fabulousness – hope you like it!

Black Jackt Blazer Gold Buttons Nautical Sailor Chicstar

This jacket is a lot more than it seems, the fabric is thick and very soft, almost like faux seude, very nice to the touch and it’s also very smart. The only issue I had with it is that it’s not fitted so even though it doesn’t feel very loose it can look it from the side and back but it’s manageable. The sleeves were a bit long for me so I rolled and pinned them inwards still exposing some of the awesome buttons. Those buttons really add character to the blazer.

The top from the first photo is now discontinued but the blazer is on sale at an incredible $19.95, it comes in Black and Navy and there’s only a few sizes left if you’re interested 🙂

Halter & Shoudler Wrap Top White

This top is a two-in-one style stop giving you the benefits of the fitted halter style (thick strap) plus the on shoulder (but near the edges) style giving a sexy neckline and the ability to wear a bra underneath. This top slips on over the head, and the front unties with the sash belt to make it convenient and fitted. The appearance is like wearing a waistcoat over a top.
