Novem & Knight Rae Jumper

I have finally decided to make a purchase from the clothing brand Novem and Knight and I am so happy.
If you don't know Novem and Knight is a very minimalist brand of clothing.
It was designed and created by Youtuber Samantha Maria and Jason Davis
The clothes are all designed by them both and then made in England which is a massive plus in my opinion.

I love their brand because all the clothes are very strong and I feel they could be a focal point of an outfit. The silhoutte's, shape's and styles are very easy to wear and could suit anybody. they also do a range for woman and men so anyone can shop there plus they have a few accessories items as well. 

I bought the Rae Jumper from them. Firstly I always have bad luck with finding a jumper that really suits me and doesn't make me look chubby at least more than what I already am haha. So buying this jumper I felt a little off to begin with because I wasn't sure it was going to look right on my body shape.

As soon as it arrived I tried it on straight away ready to be disappointed as I always am with jumpers.
WELL let me tell you this, I have never had a jumper look so perfect on me than this one before. 

Even with it being slightly cropped on me it still looked amazing I was so shocked I couldn't believe it. The neck is super long so it bunched up and folds over itself which is so warm and cozy. I feel this might be what makes it so flattering because it balances out the chunky knit and the cropped length. The weight of it allows it to sit nicely on the shoulders and not bulky looking. The knit isn't super chunky which I love also making it a lot more flattering than most jumper especially if you are a curvy girl like me this is amazing.

The way would describe this jumper is that it looks like a chunky knit, oversized jumper but in a much finer, cleaner look. 

I don't really have any downsides to this jumper about from the sleeves are slight too long but I feel that's just the length of my arms. When I first wore it I was rolling up the sleeves to see it looked better and to be honest it looked even better with the sleeves rolled up slightly.

How did it wear throughout the day?

Since writing this blog post I have worn this jumper twice without washing and both times were long days. 
I found that it didn't stretch out of place in any areas at all. I tend to roll my sleeves up to my elbow sometimes and it didn't stretch out of place there which is quite common in jumpers. I did find that because I am in college studying fashion I am constantly leaning over tables and sewing machines and looking down on the table and sewing machines that the long rolled neck can sometimes get in the way but to be honest this jumper is much more of fashion jumper than a practical wear jumper so most people how would buy this probably won't need to bother about that

All in all this jumper was a pleasant surprise and just looking through some of the other pieces I can't wait to make another purchase there. the quality of the clothes is very high and very affordable at the same time. This jumper is the type of jumper that will suit any body shape and size and it feels so cozy like you are still in bed and it will keep you nice and warm even on the coldest of winter days. 

I hope you enjoy this post and I will leave links to Novem and Knights website and social media dets.

Pieta 2.0

Pieta 2.0 is my most recent project and creation in fashion that I wanted to share with everyone. It also one of my most favourtie and accurate in terms of design and craftmenship that I have created so far. 

Pieta 2.0 is inspired by greek sculpture and renaissance art and how fabric is used on the body and how it ulters and changes the body and but can also enhance the body shape. I was really inspired by Michelangelos Pieta sculpture and how renaissance art used the them contrapposto a lot in the world of art. This was also used i ngreek sculptture. 
As well as this researched into how fabric is used in current trends and collections to manipulate and alter the body shop and I became very inspired by the french brand Vetements and how they tend to use fabric in excess to create lots of crinkles and rolls of fabric that ahng and collect around the waist, hips and wrists. I like to call the designs modern day greek sculpture.

This is how I came up with the name for the piece, Pieta 2.0. This is Pieta the sculpture reinvented taking a step into modern world wearing a Vetements rather than a gown.

Winter Favourites

I've been loving primarks pyjama and lounge wear range recently. I really loved this two piece set that has beatifull lace detail aorund the edges. And to make it even better they had a range of colours. Silky pyjamas are allways a luxary that is nice to treat yourself with and they are mega comfy and light.

A just rediscovered Urban Decay and how really good their make up actually is when i had a clearout of my make up. I really love the Naked 3 palette as the rose gold shades really suit my blue eye colour. Plus its just to pretty not to look at. I really love using a wet brush with the metallic shimmery colours as it makes them really strong and like liquid metal on your eyes. 

Another one of my christmas presents was this super trendy and amazing lamp. Ive been trying to find a lamp for my desk for a long time since my last one broke and it didnt really suit the them of my room anywhy. I spotted this lamp in Aldi, i know right i bet you didnt think i was gonna say that. 
It has a marble base which is super heavy and then a half copper and half black stem/pipe. Even the light by itself is really cool. It doesnt look like it but the light is massive, but it is tinted yellow to make it look really vintage. This lamb is the perfect edition to my room and exactly what I was looking for. 

My recent college project made way to my most favourite design that I have created this professionally learning to become a fashion designer. This piece is called Pieta 2.0 which was inspired by the french brand, Vetements as well as Greek Sculpture and renaissance art. 
I love it that much that once I have had it assessed I am so going to wear it I love it so much.
