I DO have a bird obsession.

I'm really feeling green (particularly olive/khaki) and blue, and these are some of my favourite examples. Maybe worn with a warm pink/red/orange/lilac accent if I'm feeling adventurous...!

FRONT ROW





Hello! I hope you're well ?!
A couple of weeks ago, one of the online shops I had mentioned a liking for in this post, contacted me to offer me some pocket money to spend in their store... in exchange for posted photographs of me in my choice. An offer I was rather excited to receive! And so off I browsed.
Front Row Shop is somewhat a "something for everyone" shop. You find yourself playing Spot The Kenzo, Celine, Stella and Wang-a-likes or if you're like me, enjoying some of their randomly cool designs. Anyway, I chose this Celine skirt. Other options being thisthis (frayed edges!!), this (flying horse dreams!!) or almost any of their shoes.
[Sizing note: I'm a 8 top half and a 10 bottom, generally. And I found the size M tight enough to make me want to wear supersized, condom-like underwear... Make of that, what you will.]
When my skirt arrived, I had forgotten that I'd agreed to photograph it....
But, I was so excited to A) own something brand new(!) and B) own something brand new of beautiful quality(...!), that I immediately had to make myself a quick "lookbook"...

Aaand, while I'm promoting stuff, I'd like to encourage my little readership toward Showstudio's fashion week videos. In which Lou Stoppard masterfully guides discussions with a range of interesting/ eloquent/ arguably ridiculous industry insiders. Very interesting.

And I'd also like to give a hopefully somewhat helpful shaat-aat to a beautiful friend who is starting out hand-crafting hot-air balloon lights for kiddiewinkles. Cute!

As usual, all clothes (apart from the skirt) are secondhand or homemade. The leather boots (they're so lovely in real life!) were a bargainous market find, and the nude pointies are Zara.

a different look at the shows.
