Apologies for the radio silence these last few days. I’ve been super busy out in Portugal rushing to and fro on the house project. But I couldn’t resist grabbing the original (oversized to the max!) laundry bag for a few photos…
Laundry bag check, brought to the trend forefront by Celine AW13, is now selling out on the high street in shift dress incarnations and more. There’s this laundry check jacket still available at Boohoo and this cute top here at Misguided. I can’t find any shift dresses left anywhere online – tell me if you know of any! It’s just hilarious how fashion works, isn’t it? And I’m totally admit I’m guilty of its foibles; craving as I am this print in a shift dress. Ridiculous, right? Or just extremely clever of Phoebe Philio to spot a good print going to waste on the humble laundry bags. Food for thought?
On the photography side, these were snapped on my iPhone, as I didn’t manage to charge my Canon battery in a new universal charger I bought at the airport. But I have just got it working, thank god! In other news, a couple of exciting projects coming up and I’ll be going to the Clothes Show Live in Birmingham next month for the first time in absolutely yonks – I’m talking over a decade, my last trip being when I was a teenager. I am actually stupidly excited!
The Algarve is fantastically sunny at this time of year and I want to get out and about tomorrow – in between kitchen tiles and the electrician – to get some photos. So, what are your feelings on the laundry check? Like or loathe?
