For the past couple of months I have been selling jackets that I have hand painted on Depop. This post is about how you can style painted denim whether it is my painted jackets or from somewhere else as there are loads of talented people out there!

I’m styling this denim jacket with my classic comfy old skool vans, a grey crop top from Topshop (that goes with pretty much anything!) and my favourite peg trousers from Pull & Bear. They are a super comfy and soft material and can be dressed up for an interview or dressed down for a more casual look like I’ve done here. My only complaint is that they are a little short on the legs for me as i’m quite tall. I also like the look of these trousers on ASOS if your’e looking for more of that ‘paper-bag’ style and they would also go perfectly with a denim jacket.

I have paired this outfit with my yellow rekanken.

I hope you enjoyed this post and like my painted denim jackets! 🙂

Dare to be different- My GCSE Art short film

Art

Art is definitely my favourite subject in GCSE, As part of our topic of Past,Present and/or future I decided to experiment with art in the style of Alexa Meade; Painting directly onto people to transform them into a painting.

Thank you so much to my friends for being my models and letting me cover you in acrylic paint ! If you give this a go please make sure to only use PA approved paint otherwise it will have harsh chemicals in it! i found it a lot more effective with just 2 contrasting colours but i did gradually add dome colour to one of them to show change through time (also demonstrated through the changing of seasons).

The main message I wanted to get across was that women need to empower each other, there is so much media out there that causes conflict between friends and jealousy is often the root cause. I named this ‘dare to be different’ to show that its ok to be different, its good to step out of your comfort zone, its amazing that we areal so unique. The other message was to show stepping into reality, when they step out of the painting and into the  ‘real world’ it demonstrates the unknowingness of will there be a brighter future? to show curiosity and exploration.
