In fact, one of the things I miss most about my childhood, is old-fashioned mail. I miss the anticipation of opening the mail every day, the surprise of finding a letter (that’s not a bill) and appreciating the effort someone put into hand-writing a note just for me.
Letterheady, is a new online archive of the letterheads of legendary artists, politicians, collectives, programmes. Browsing through might just inspire you to design one of your own and pen a note that will make someone’s day. There is nothing more thoughtful than a handwritten letter.

Ticks, crosses, excuses
As for the 'pick outfit for tomorrow' it's semi-here, I cut the collar off an old top, I should of done a post today but literally lept into bed as soon as I came home from college today.
Collar-less + corsage
I actually got this out of the way today. A huge bubble dress I made for my first project that's been sitting round college and I've been too worried to take it back home on the train I finally did today!

Huff and puff it's a bit past midnight and don't know what to do with myself. Do you ever feel..just...I don't know....'blagh'? I've got a big old to-do list and am avoiding it and instead complaining about not knowing what to do. I blame this on sugar. I've had a few biscuits and this must be my sugar low of feeling completely uninspired. I might think of something. Off I go....

Necklace is own creation which will be put in the shophttp://www.graydonwhite.co.uk
I got a few emails around the same time and it's kind of hard to guage who sent it first because of the different time zones etc. So in todays give away this sweetheart bracelet the requirements are the same but I will just pick out at random in a hat. Also, girls some of you emailed me and are not in my list of followers make sure you read the post carefully. So new followers, email me your name, blog name, adress (to firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will put you all in a hat. See todays give away.
The tooth necklace is going to Katie.S in London. Congrats x

I will be doing this for another 4 days doing more give aways with the same concept so if you're not the first new follower in my inbox then you can bide your time and save it for the coming days.
Also I do some writing for a high profile blog as a designer and am doing a feature on proms. So I would like your prom/debs photographs. In return I will give the best entry this peter pan collar attachment pictured below. Competition closes Wednesday 15th September.
What I am looking for:
-Tasteful not tacky photographs
-Some sort of group photo
-Specifically, if you have any photographs of your dress on a hanger, EVEN MORE if it is on a hanger in a store (you will be told why)
Anyway more than anything just send as many as you can because then its more likely I'll find what I need.
EMAIL: email@example.com X

What I got up to is a long story and not exciting unless I provide images which I don't have (yet)
In the meantime I willl show you some images of the competition I entered. The prize is a bursary towards couse fees of a fashion related course.
The entry brief
My moodboard, inspiration, design
Techincal drawing, samples, the boring part
And this is an outline of who would wear the design with some key words

Here is my attempts to gain employment. I do work doing admin and some PA duties on a Monday and it is well paid for what I actually do but it's not enough for me to live properly, just sustaining me you know what I mean.
So I am applying for the usual retail sales positions in most of my favourite stores, alot of my friends just hand in their CV's/resume's to the stores on foot. I just wouldn't be able to stand the snooty sales assistant face as she patronizingly says "I'll pass that on for you" so I've decided to mail them instead.
So I am a student trying to get a part time position. What's your situation? Do you work full time part time? Are you studying like me? Are you face to face with the public everyday or behind a computer screen?
I also want to know if anybody has had success with this blanketing/spamming method. I've done it before on emails and have got a few responses but it would just be no's. However I did look for someone once and found them doing this. So I'm just curious, let me know...
