Cath Kidston…

April 23, 2014

IMG_5503IMG_5508clocksI was lucky enough to be invited along to the recent Cath Kidston event as Katrina’s plus one. It was at their new flagship store in Piccadilly, this was my first visit to the new store and boy was it a pretty feast for the eyes! So many cute things to take in, some were props and others were for sale. I will one day get my hands on a retro push button phone and hopefully it’ll be a red one! I also loved the glass jar with all those clocks in it. My favorite Cath items were Stanley the dog related and the baking collection, too bad I’m a rubbish baker! But lets pretend I’m fabulous as its a blogger cliche to be! ;-)IMG_5514IMG_5523stanIMG_5533IMG_5531I mean just look at those pretty scales and that Stanley timer! Just too cute!

Into The Wild…

April 19, 2014

amy_006 amy_011Happy Easter ya’ll! Its so nice to have a long weekend, I’m taking advantage of this and heading home to visit my parents. I haven’t been back to Birmingham since September. I’m really looking forward to seeing the new house my parents brought and spending some quality time with them. I’ll be taking my camera to capture anything fun that happens…
I wore this outfit last weekend, in fact it was a little too hot for a velvet dress. I layered my kimono over the top and added lots of rings, my new sunglasses I picked up in Brighton’s Beyond Retro. My trusty hat and Dr Martens, which I seam to always have on my feet. I promise I’ll wear some other shoes soon, they are just so comfy and easy to throw on.amy_012 amy_09amy_068What I’m wearing -

Dress – Boohoo

Kimono – New Look

Hat – Urban Outfitters

Sunglasses & BagBeyond Retro, Vintage

What I Wore To Brighton!

April 15, 2014

amy_brighton_012amy_brighton1amy_brighton_021As the title of this post suggests this is my Brighton outfit, I also thought I’d add a couple of my favorite Brighton snaps to set the mood… Also this dress has fast become a firm favorite and I want to wear it all the time! I love the print, pockets and shape, it’s just so easy to wear. This time I styled it with my beloved cropped jumper as it was a little chilly by the seaside and my hat. I’m very surprised I was able to keep my hat on and it didn’t blow off once, even when on the beach and pier!! I’m glad I had my hat on, it stopped my hair being fully windblown and go crazy big.amy_brighton_017amy_brighton_001 amy_brighton_009amy_brighton_014amy_brighton_019amy_brightonWhat I’m wearing -

Saturday Street Style…

April 12, 2014

Illustration Addition!

I’ve been drawing again, trying to do a least one drawing a week. Then some times the feeling takes hold of me and I end up drawing lots, like this time. I’ve ended up with a bulk of drawings, thought I’d separate them into categories and this post is dedicated to street style. I found these images on the web, sadly I haven’t taken them (hoping to start the street style photography up again in the summer). I picked these images because I felt they were wearing something I’d like or they had a special something about them.

amy_fashion_street1 amy_fashion_streetAll drawings done my fair hands and I’m available for commissioned work if you fancy it :-)

Brighton, You so pretty!

Day trippin’ with my boys!

We headed to Brighton for a day trip, we left London with lovely sunshine and arrived in Brighton to a grey and very bland sky. Too bad we didn’t take the sunshine with us!
We still had a blast, wandering along the pebbled beach, which Coco really enjoyed. Then headed in search of a dog friendly pub. After a really good pub lunch, it was time for a vintage mooch. Beyond retro is a must on any vintage shopping trip, sadly I only came away with a new tote bag, pair of sunnies and a bow tie for Dave. I guess thats still rather successful but I was hoping for a new dress!
A trip to Brighton isn’t complete without seeing the famous Pavilion and what better spot to take a couple of outfit pictures. I will share these in a post to come :-)
All in all, it was a lovely day trip and here are some of my favorite moments.

IMG_5860IMG_5854amy_brighton_010 amy_brighton_11amy_brighton_001Loved this scruffy dog, like a messy and slightly bigger version of Coco!

Folklore…

April 7, 2014

blossom_018blossom3Ta-da! Say hello to my new dress!

I’ve wanted this particular dress for quite some time but sadly it was far to pricey… Then while I was waiting to meet a friend, I popped into Urban to kill some time and to my amazement it was in the sale. With a good chunk knocked off the price too! Without further ado, I snapped it up and headed to the tills and I haven’t looked back since. To mix up my hat selection I opted for my printed fedora, just to change it up a little ;-)blossom_024blossom2blossom_005What I’m wearing -

Dress, Hat & Necklace – Urban Outfitters

Jacket – Warehouse

Bag – Vintage

Shoes – Dr Martens

Hidden Pathways…

April 4, 2014

amy_red_010amy_redDave and I went exploring our local area and ended up in Wandsworth common, we had been to Clapham Junction for a browse along the high street at all the independent stores. I picked up the best second hand zinc tube and a very pretty, but slightly over grown and wild  hydrangea plant. I’m really pleased with this score! I’m planning to take some photos of my potted plants, they’re all sprouting and hopefully will blossom soon. I’m really enjoying gardening…I just need to get onto the weeding, not so fun! You’ve pretty much seen this outfit before, but its one of my faves, so no doubt you’ll see it again. Next time I must remember to take my jumper off and show the dress off to its full beauty!
