31 December 2010
All of my time was taken up trawling through second hand shops and tatty old warehouses in search of beautiful, tatty old furniture.
We finally settled into our new flat and I embraced summer with denim (not an easy task for me), pale colours and clogs.
I used Sherlock Holmes as my main sartorial influence.
After weeks of waiting, my Poppy Pashley arrived just in time to be put away for the winter but not before a few rides in the park. Then we flew to Nevada and California, where the weather was miserable in San Francisco. I felt sick for home and chose to dress overtly British. Or like Alexa Chung, at very least.
I wore alot of plaid (I'm Scottish, after all) all sewn with my own fair hands. Then it snowed, alot!
Then it snowed constantly and taking pictures was difficult but I attempted the subtle art of casual dressing with black and white Tshirts. Since dressing down is not my forté (I wish it was), I'm back to wearing clothes fit for Edwardian Children. The final shot is from today's shoot, which I'll hopefully post tomorrow.
After looking through all my posts from the last year, I decided only to choose pictures from the last six months. This is because, since I graduated this summer I've finally been able to give my blog the amount of attention that I've always wanted to and all of you darling readers deserve. It just wasn't possible while I had such a heavy work load... those period frocks certainly didn't make themselves. Since then blog has finally begun to look the way I have always wanted it to and I'm enjoying it more than ever. I hope that you are too!
At the risk of becoming overtly sentimental, I would just like to say a infinite Thank You to all my readers both old and new. All your sweet comments and emails don't go unnoticed and once the festive period comes to an end I will be back with regular outfit posts, long awaited tutorials and a giveaway. The reason the tutorials have been slow is that I'm unsure of how much detail to go into. I would hate to sound patronising but at the same time, I don't want to miss out important information. So I need you to tell me if you would prefer very detailed instructions and pictures or a slightly simpler tutorial?
Have a wonderful night, wherever you are spending it! I will be celebrating with a gorgeous bottle of Prosecco whilst weaning my newest TBA dress.
Happy New Year x
