Do you remember how I tell you in the last post about a great project I have to share with you? It’s a wool project and what’s better season to kick it off than autumn (which is really approaching fast!)? Because, believe me, nothing warms you up as a good as a wool clothing! Moreover if you are into fashion (and probably you do) than you just have to know that it’s the middle of the wool week in UK as well (and you can meet real, live sheeps in Oxford Street, London – crazy, no?).
On the photo above I’m wearing my beloved wool scarf. It’s hand made by a friend and was obviously inspired by Gryffindor colors (ages ago I was really, but really into Harry Potter). Below you can see my two wool sweaters. (all photos taken with my mobile phone – sorry! :()
light grey PROMOD knitted sweater with silver ring, from about 2 years ago
dark grey ZARA knitted sweater with leather buttons, from last year
The contest, I want you to take part in, is sponsored by Woolmark and called Find Fashion By Feelings. It aims to promote wool products and inspire young people to create unique, beautiful and fashionable looks. You can find thier site here.
There are to ways to take a part: you can take a photo of yourself wearing a wool piece and upload it to their site (to win AUD $12,000 holiday and wool experience) – which part I have to skip thanks to my lack of camera (this sucks!); and also by voting for your favourite photos (weekly prize is Emu Australia wool pack worth AUD $400). Yes, it’s really that easy 🙂
Just before I went on my short holidays, I’ve started sorting out my stuff – things I need to get rid off before October (THE date!). Somewhere in the depth of my boxroom (or rather ‘boxwardrobe’) I found a vintage leather jacket.
It’s really vintage – from about 25 years ago, and was bought by my parents and never really worn (!) so the quality is overwhelming. Sadly it’s way too big for me and I have to sell it 😦
But still – it’s a great find and I hope someone will embrace it. Wonder what more is waiting for me? And what treasures do you have in your own boxroom? 😉
