this balconet bra is currently my favourite thing in store. i bought the dark grey first, fell horribly in love and now nearly have every single colour. it is so comfy, so soft and not so repulsive for the man species. winner.
i do worry about my choice of clothing sometimes, i'm totes feeling the whole "i'm a granny" look, so much so a male friend said he was pretty sure his grandma had my shoes. i think me and her would get on very well. obviously i am loving the knits, but i am outdoing myself by actually contemplating wearing colour. and green! what a lovely colour to break my shade only rule.
yes ok, i'm continuing with the unseasonal theme and yes it is a little sickening... i too had just come to terms with the delightful prospect of building up a nice warm fat layer for the cold english winter, but actually i am grateful for rosie tupper and her insane babeness for preventing me from becoming a happy human yeti. sigh.
yesterday evening i went along to the british fashion council sponsored 'models of diversity presents curves in couture' charity fashion show, where the house of scarlet were showcasing their amazing jewellery. it was a fundraiser for the fantastic charity advance, really a very worth while cause. i was lucky enough to be allowed backstage to be a house of scarlet little helper and also got an all access pass (hollaaa) to cover the show on this little blog (and help video for the girls), i also more importantly managed to steal a dreamcatcher earring for the evening (double hollaaa). tash and riva danson (the sisters who founded hos, tash is also one of my favourite people. ever) are the hardest working people i know and they did a wonderful job. bravo (i bought them celebratory pizza en route to our returning tubes). the headpieces are my absolute favourite thing from the collection (as seen above being adjusted on robyn lawley) and it was quite exciting to see toccara jones (from america's top model) wearing hos down the catwalk. i feel very lucky to have known this jewellery and accessories brand from when it was conceived as it is just getting bigger and bigger and there is so much that will be happening for them in the near future. i'm a very proud auntie. from this saturday you will be able to purchase house of scarlet from camden market (just spot the girls eating pie & mash), they also have a store on etsy.
the house of scarlet blog has covered the catwalk imagery from this show so i'll re-edit this when their post is up. here are the deets so you can fall in love with the yumminess yourself...
it would appear that there is an abundance of my many girl crushes on this little blog but very few man beasts. yes, it is a fail on my behalf and one i intend to rectify. and so i start with the rather scrummy francisco lachowski. if he asked, i would allow him to be my boyfriend.
