Glasses Exhibition at MUDE

What is the only thing more exciting than an exhibition of retro spectacles? An exhibition of retro spectacles in an OLD BANK VAULT. Mude Design Museum in Lisbon is such a cool space, and this was my favourite part (the furniture section was a close second, losing out only due to the lack of tiny … Continue reading

Costume Exhibition at MUDE Lisbon

There are a lot of good museums in Lisbon. A LOT. I feel like it’s going to take a while to visit them all even though I now live here and am not in fact on holiday (although sometimes it still feels like that after four months. But then I have to go to work…) … Continue reading

Blythe Fashion Shoot

Because I am really grown-up, I decided it was about time my Blythe doll took part in a photo shoot. Also because she has some beautiful clothes, some of which were made by my friend Emma-Louise (the cute nautical jacket and beautiful transport print dress). This particular doll’s name is Miss Sally Rice (according to the … Continue reading

Spring Fashion

I’m getting a bit excited at the propect of nice weather, which may or may not happen anytime soon in England… Anyway, here is my Spring Fashion inspiration, most of which I cannot afford.

I decided not to put them in order because it’s too hard, and then I might have to come up with … Continue reading

I’d been there before but had never explored the area – it’s ridiculously nice, as you might expect … Continue reading

Spectacle inspiration

I’ve been an occasional glasses wearer for about four years now, and if I’m honest it still feels like a bit of a novelty. I do actually need them though, I promise. Increasingly so; for seeing faraway things like train times at the station, films, finding my friends in pubs etc. Or even just noticing … Continue reading

Seoul

In October my friend Natalie and I decided to get out of China for the national holiday. The only place we could get cheap flights to was Seoul, which was lucky as I really wanted to go anyway. Natalie had been a few times before and raved about the shopping. We stayed in Hongdae, which … Continue reading

Fabric Market

Okay, I know a while ago I promised I would post pictures of the stuff I got made to measure at the fabric market. I already had this picture of the denim skirt (as seen in the wedding post, with the lovely Natalie). It was my most expensive fabric market purchase at 150RMB (about £15). … Continue reading
