My wardrobe seems to be suffering lately, and I was having a mini fashion crisis, so James suggested a trip to Brighton was in order. Why the crisis? Well, Hastings has some very cool parts, but there is a distinct lack of decent clothes shops. Debenhams and River Island seem to be the peak of fashion here. And whilst these places do have some decent stuff, I've found my wardrobe slowly deteriorating into pre-Felix jeans that really don't fit properly and supermarket bought tops!. Add to this a baby who seems to think that changing rooms are the worst punishment ever and you might see where I'm coming from
So off we go, and ...success! Jack Wills, All Saints and Zara all produced the goods and I now own jeans that fit, some lurvely All Saints stylish jumpers and a cool tweed blazer!
Roll on Autumn, I'm ready for you!
The only downside to our shopping trip? £25 for 4 hours NCP parking in Brighton city centre!!! Am I out of date or is that loads?!
In more exciting news, in the last week I've had two commissions (from strangers, not relatives!) and have agreed to supply a third shop from late September. (eeeeeee!)
The first commission was for a cushion to go with this one which was for sale at "Made in Hastings"
The brief was "must be the same size, similar style, not necessarily the same fabrics". Eeek, in the end, I made two so she'd have a choice....
On which cushion would you place your bet? :)
