JUMPER customised with lace* {Graceland}; HOUNDSTOOTH SKIRT {Upper 5th}; TIGHTS & LACE GLOVES {Primark}; DOROTHY HEELS {Dorothy Perkins}; BAG {Flo’s Grandma}; HEADSCARF {Grace’s Grandma}

*To customise a jumper like this:
- Buy about 60 inches of lace from a haberdashers or market
- First pin the top of the lace around the neckline
- Then sew carefully by hand/machine
- Sew another 2 rows of lace beneath top row, at about 2 inch intervals

Flo (right):
POLKA-DOT POLLY DRESS {Graceland}; NECKLACE {Topshop}; HEELS {Charity shop}; H&M BASKET BAG customised with FLOWER brooch* {New Look: £5!}

*A cheap basket bag can be easily made to feel pretty by adding a flower corsage, oversized bow, or vintage scarf tied around the handle

I love LICORICE TEA, although this is not in my cup. Flo is the best model EVER for my clothes because she looks like a lovely doll and her hair actually made me squeal a little. UPPER 5th is a fantastic brand that I was lucky enough to do an internship with in April – they’re all about popping colours, leopard print, polka dots, 50s shapes and BOWS BOWS BOWS! Check them out at or in store at Topshop Oxford St & The Laden Showroom.

SUNGLASSES {Charity shop: £1.50}

*Check out larger department shops and places like Tie Rack for sexy socks and team with bright vintage heels for that grown-up schoolgirl look. But not in the tarty sense.

Yellow and green EYESHADOW and pink LIPSTICK {Barry M}; BLUSHER {Bourjois}

- Pencil/shade in eyebrows a few shades darker than your hair & extend the ends a little further to make them STRONG like bull
- For Flo’s china-doll look, circle blusher on the apples of your cheeks & add bright PINK LIPSTICK which misses the corners of your bottom lip. Like Lady Gaga but less scary Geisha.
