So no photos from me. Which sucks because I want to write about a thing I went to at Fashion Week and a couple of other posts which I had swirling around my noggin. Next week, next week will be better.
Anyone got any fun plans for the weekend? I'm off home to see my parents and plans for Friday night include going to a beer festival and sampling some real ales, Saturday will mean a bit of charity shopping and trawling some travel agents for deals on flights to America. I've finally saved enough to book everything for our September trip! Any tips on roadtripping much appreciated!
Sorry for the wordiness dudes but Happy Friday to you all for tomorrow!
Drop-waisted chiffon dresses with big, bold florals. Heaps of blood-red in all manner of textures.
Need to see more of this but can't find anymore shots. The little kitty caps remind me of Enid's sex mask in Ghostworld. 'Nuff said.
St Martins grad and last year's Fashion Fringe winner. A stand-out show for me- the sashes had me sold.
The tartan and Quality Street-hued a-line mini's tipped me in favour of loving this show.
Thought I'd do a quick summary of my favourite shows from today at London Fashion Week and do the same for the next few days.
I'm only going on Sunday, so have pretended I was there today with the help of the London Fashion Weekend website, where all of these photos are taken from.
Any shows you loved or hated today? Were you there, hogging the 'frow? Gossip, please!
I’ve decided to adopt this myself but adapt it slightly so that it represents’ my choices and my life.
II. I do not want my money to support fast-fashion
III. Henceforth, I will not be responsible for the mountains of clothing sent to landfill sites.
IV. I refuse to continue inadvertently supporting the unethical practices used by manufacturers
V. I own a sewing machine. I will use it.
VI. If something no longer fits or is desirable, I will sell it or donate it.
VII. Vintage and second-hand one-offs will be my special treats. There is no limit on these.
VIII. I will make a concerted effort to buy from ethical brands wherever possible.
p.s I hit 1000 followers last night, which made me a bit emotional actually. Thank you. Please continue being awesome.
I really couldn't love it any more than I do. Michelle has captured my dress and my beehive exactly as I remember it that night and considering my hands were shaking something chronic trying to hold that teacup and saucer still, I look remarkably composed. Having something like this to keep is really such a treasure so thank you Michelle! I'm planning on going to get it printed and pop it up on display but too vain? I drew the line at using it to make a Valentines Day card for Ed so don't worry, I do have some self-control!
Thanks to a heads up from Emily, I've just also discovered this illustration by Natasha Thompson from The Secret Tea Party. Natasha, if you read this, thank you! What a great surprise on a Sunday night!
