putting on a show

When I heard about Maaike Mekking's presentation for her A/W 10-11 collection it all seemed so different and interesting that I had to read up on it in more detail. 'Witch-Craft-Wo-Man-Ship' sounded like a truly surreal and special experience for those who had the pleasure to view it - one lone model trying on each piece in a makeshift bedroom in a transfixing show. This ethereal performance perfectly showcased the extremely wearable, variably textured and vintage film-inspired collection in a unique and interesting way - fair play to the designer for her gorgeous garments and equally individual idea for a presentation.

Visit her blog here to see more thoughts, inspirations and to keep updated with everything Mekking.

sheer delight

All this promise of soon-to-be spring had me looking about for something to wear once we get there... Found this beauty of a dress in my favourite vintage shop in Bristol (I can NEVER go in there without finding something to spend money on!)

Think this used to have another sheer insert inside originally but I love it completely sheer, perfect for summer festivals... orrrr just for dossing about everyday...!

Will try to get a full length picture of it on its first outing! Will be perfect with a silky nude slip or body-con top and cycling shorts underneath...

juliana neufeld

Just discovered this rather talented lady's artwork. Love the carefree attitude with which she creates inspiring images and the dreamy colours with which she conveys them... This Canadian artist trained as a photographer but her mixed media and illustration work shows her as much more than this.

Beautiful work - to check it out, look here and to see more of the same, including an insight into the inspiration for these wonderful works, visit her blog here.

springing into spring!

Ahhh all of this sun in the past few days makes me wanna...

Dreaming of warm spring days spent frolicking in fields, whimsical walks, staying out late and not having to wear a coat, eating outside... Thoughts are turning to travelling and festivals in the summer and total freedom (for a while at least)
