Three quick Fashion Tips (1.)

1.) Vintage Brooch

For that shapeless dress at the back of your wardrobe create a new form fitting look with a vintage brooch you can pin the front to make your stomach look flatter or in the back for an new and unique styled look for either pinning the front or the back gather the fabric at the waist and place a brooch in place to gather the fabric. (here is a link to a YouTube video by Elle Fowler showing how to do so) 

2.) Safety Pin Earrings

Create a new trend by Using a Safety Pin as an earring to add an edgy look to your outfits. Just make sure you remember get rid of the sharp part of the pin by filing down with a piece of Sand Paper or a nail file and sterilize with rubbing alcohol

3.) Charity shops

Browse your local charity shop for a great, cheap second hand find and help out those who need it, keep your eyes peeled for anything and everything, the large variety of styles and sizes can be daunting for any new time charity shopper so, keep an open mind, remember larger sized tops can be tucked into jeans or skirts  or pinned in places to ecencuate a great figure. Although do clean clothes before you wear them charity shops are generally dusty due to the amount of used items they stock so clothes may be dirty, you can handwash items with delicate beaded or stiched detail or for more normal items place them in a washing machine.
