I walked into Bird’s yard to find that things had changed less that I expected. The rooms hadn’t been switched around yet but the third floor was being renovated and machines were so loud you could hardly hear what anyone was saying. There were plenty of staff on as we had expected the new jewellery room to be open so the work pace was quite chilled out.
After cleaning and reorganising my booth I decided to have a look round and take some pictures.
The first thing I noticed was that lovely crayfish had moved some new stuff in. I especially love the day of the dead T-Rex skeleton print, as well as the rounded corner moo cards (of which I have run out).
Pretty much immediately after this I noticed the large mirror and decided I had to seize this opportunity to get a picture of my whole outfit.
I was then asked to look through some magazines and find some interesting images for a collage. I really love this job because it reminds me of the non-stressful part of being at uni.
While looking through the magazines I came across “Fiyah!” a leeds mag I hadn’t seen before.
There was a feature on Bird’s yard inside and the Eustratia booth was visible in the picture.
I don’t think they mentioned individual designers but it was still nice to see.
The lady I was working with that day runs Urban fox. A label that makes the most adorable cushions. She also customises and re-upholsters furniture, there is a specific chain downstairs at Bird’s yard I’ve had my eye on since I first walked into the shop.
I have mentioned Belles Bejewelled on here before but I’d never tried on one of these strand necklaces. I decided to give one a go. It looked kind of cool and messy from the front but I preferred it worn over the shoulder.
One on each shoulder was a definitely strong look with maximum editorial potential. I’d love to wear these for a shoot.
It was Jubilee weekend so I decided it would be entertaining to try on Cloe’s inflatable crown and hold a diamond. I’m not usually the humorous type but this shop obviously inspires!
To finish off the nonsense, after re-pricing all the dresses on one side of the room I decided to try on a vintage wedding dress.
The top part didn’t really suit me but I love the layers of ruffles!
