#FrockSwapUK…Rachel’s boho smock

Man, I love a good smock dress, perfect for covering up your lumps and bumps and plenty of room for a nice big meal to boot! You can just throw them on with a necklace and you have an instant pulled together look, so I was thrilled when I received my next #frockswapuk parcel with this dress from Rachel inside.

It’s starting to warm up and I think this is a great transitional season piece so I teamed it with my cropped pleather jacket and favourite boots from Topshop (and it will look even better bit a bit of fake tan too…I’m not quite there yet though!)

This is such a versatile dress, I can’t wait to see how Erica Styles it!

F&F at Tesco – introducing…the Skort!

OK OK, I know I’m a little late to the party when it comes to skorts but I’ve been admiring them from afar for a while now never thinking I would find one that was a decent length on me (i.e not showing my bottom!). Camilla is my go-to girl when I think about skorts, […]

#FrockSwapUK with George at Asda Part Deux!

This is the second item I chose from the vast selection of lovelies on the George site. Again, like the kimono, it’s not something I would usually go for but it’s about time to push some boundaries and try some new stuff. So here is me in bright blue – bright white legs to match… 😉 […]

Vintage Pattern Sale

I’m having a little clear out as it’s just getting ridiculous on the vintage pattern front. As much as I love them all, I’m never going to have time to make them! A few things to remember when buying vintage patterns; Sizing: Go by the measurements rather than the stated clothing size as ladies in […]

Craft a week challenge – Week 9

This weeks craft is a bit of nostalgia for me. I have always loved making things, as far back as I can remember I always had pencils in my hands or some sort of clay, and a needle and thread as I got older. I loved modelling clay and was a big Fimo fan as […]
