Checkmate

On Saturday, I went to my friend’s barbeque and had the pleasure of shooting in her garden.

I’ve been waiting to get this dress out again since last summer but the weather wasn’t as nice as we originally hoped so I wore it over a vest and a pair of tights.

Spring needs

I recently managed to get my studio looking pretty much the way I want it, only to find out that I have to move again soon. The only thing that makes it bearable is that I have most of the furniture and equipment I need now and the next move will probably be easier.

I have a few posts to catch up on and with my birthday coming up I thought I’d start with wishlist type boards. I’m pretty sure my homeware choices will come as quite a shock after my wardrobe picks but that’s the way I like it.

clothesI’ve tried to choose items that could be Spingish but can also be layered for warmth as there’s no signs of the cold subsiding yet.
