Floral fingers

23Sep09

Last night as I was watching tv, fidgeting with my ditsy floral dress, wrapping it around my hands (fidget, fidget, fidget)…I looked down and realised that ditsy floral gloves can be added to my (ever growing) Autumn wishlist. I was hoping someone on etsy had already made some but no. Point me in the right direction…

It seems like for the past few weeks Sunday has been ‘date day’. A lovely breakfast, a hefty lunch and a cheeky beer (or 2). Long walks and photographs fill the gaps. Sunday is the new Saturday night…for us at least.

Sunday

13Sep09

Today was filled with loveliness. Poached egg and mushrooms on toast for Breakfast. I did an amateur haircut for my boyfriend…looks good. Then we went to take some photos. Stopping for sausage and mash and finally, scrabble and beer.

I wore a little Dahlia playsuit and trusty Topshop brogues today. The thing about playsuits is that, despite being cute, they come with a bit of tricky business….#1 my one zips all the way up the back – awkward for toilet stops and #2 when the time does come to pop to the toilet and you’ve mastered the zipper, there is that awkward moment when, having peeled your playsuit off your shoulders and down past your waist, you realise you’re nearly naked in a bar toilet. Nice!

As all my fellow Londoners know, we have been having a warm day, a cold day, warm in the morning/cold in the afternoon day or vice versa for weeeeeeks. It’s been a challenge to dress in the morning because body temperatures are either soaring or plummeting by the afternoon. Sort it out London it’s reeking havoc with my look.


Well on Thursday night, I was wandering about London with my photography class, taking photos of architecture when who should cycle by but…wait for it….Vivienne Westwood. My hands were shaking, my heart was pounding and I sneakily took the worst picture of her ever. Still. a defining moment. And I was wearing my Anglomania/Melissa pumps on my little feet 🙂 Best coincidence ever!

“Give to me your leather
Take from me…my lace”

What a combination… I’ve been waiting for the weather to turn cold just so I can wear a whole leather jacket/lace dress combo. The weather is being weird in London, chilly yesterday, heatwave today.

Looking for different leather/lace looks, I stumbled upon this little capelet
