Rainbow Swans

Last week, I was very lucky to shoot with the radiant Kitty Gallannaugh (if you're waiting for your copy of Wish Magazine, you will spot a wonderful editorial shot by her in it) and Megan of The Briar Rose, who has the most amazing hair. When there's candyfloss, funfair rides, Kee Boutique dresses and rainbow swans(!) involved, you know it's gonna be a good day out (let's not talk about tripping over in mud because this does not happen to seasoned platform wearers like me, obvz). If you are not familiar with Kitty's work, you should definitely check it out - she is massively talented and impossibly sweet.

She wears things over and over (and over)

Ahh, don't we all love a self-indulgent armpit sniffing photo. You must be so tired of seeing this lace top, perhaps I'll get some new clothes in the near future... perhaps not. Times are dire: even in charity shops, you now have to physically dive deep into the sea of jersey - M&S V-necks and Next cardigans, anyone? - to find something interesting. OK, I exaggerate, because I did find this Orla Kiely-esque skirt for 75p. The 'Atmosphere' isn't that bad in there I suppose (those who shop in Primark and charity shops will appreciate this pun, if not, I will enlighten you: 'Atmosphere' is the most expensive designer brand a UK resident could ever purchase. Kate Middleton covets it and sends wistful evil looks to lucky owners. She smiles, but behind her teeth there is green venom a-bubbling.). No, I shouldn't complain; overall, they still do me mighty proud. Just please, stop pricing brand new dresses still with original tags that clearly say £6 on them at £8 or sometimes even £10. How dar'st thou, Salvation Army. Hang yo' head in shame.

And the Winners Are... plus some Simple Treasures!

Sorry for the delay in announcing my giveaway winners, I have not had the quietest and easiest of weekends so thank you all for being so patient! Without further ado... the winners are Chloe and Rebecca! Please look out for an e-mail from yours truly.

 Another little surprise...
In other news, I have been very fortunate to be involved with the launch of an amazing new online store, Audrey Grace Boutique. You may have already been reading all about the preparations on owner Jaclyn's beautiful blog, in preparation for today's official online opening! Audrey Grace is like a little haven which my favourite designers, illustrators and photographers have all contributed to - far too many names to mention so I will let you explore the magical result for yourselves... The above photos are from an exclusive shoot - aptly named "Simple Treasures" - that Jaclyn has kindly shared with me so I can in turn share it with you, featuring a handful of dreamy Audrey Grace dresses.

Sailor Wednesday

Til I finally died, which started the whole world living,
Oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.
