Just a quick one to say thankyou to anyone who is now following me or has commented, it means a lot. I know this isn't the most exciting or interesting blog out there....there are some truly amazing ones around! So even just to know that some people are reading this means a lot. Bear with me, I'm looking into getting a camera, so hopefully it will be a lot more picture filled soon! I'm also in the process of packing up my room at uni, so been busy busy!

Also thanks for the thoughts on the potential dresses for the wedding...I may well go for the lace one, I was just worried about turning up like I was the one that should be walking that aisle. Weather permitting I may do a bit of shopping/bargain hunting tomorrow to find some accessories so I'll keep you updated.

Thought I'd leave you with some images of designs by the amazing designer Paul Poiret
, who revolutionised fashion design in the early 1900's. I had to write an essay on him for my course and his work was pretty fashion forward. He was responsible for freeing women of the corset and changing the silhouette at the turn of the century from the full bust and skirt to the more straight up down look that Gabrielle Chanel built her designs on in the 1920's. He was basically the bridge from 1900's to 1920's. He was also partly responsible for those harem pants that are so popular lately as he was inspired by orientalism and the ballet russes. If you've not heard of him before, then seriously, check him out!


  1. The designs are awesome! I read an article about him 2 or 3 years ago and I remember being very inspired by the cut of the clothes!

  2. love your blog, will be happy to link with you if, if you are keen, please give me a shout and I will link you.
    Ps, I assume you are new to blogging, welcome to blogging, careful, it gets addictive!
    hope to see you around, and best wishes!
