A perfect match too for this gorgeous little hand-knitted beanie I picked up in new Clapton boutique Kate Sheridan… And the Kate Sheridan bag – oops! Amazing what you can do in 10 minutes killing time… I’m planning on going back to snap some photos, but needless to say it was bustling with ladies eagerly pouring over the collection of accessories, fashion and homewares.
I was looking forward to shooting these photos, firstly because I’ve been meaning to show you this fab jumper with cream leather panel by east London designer RIYKA (see photos from my studio visit a few weeks back) for ages now and, secondly, because it was the first time I’ve done photos with the lovely Frances Davison, fashion editor at gorgeous bi-annual arts magazine So It Goes. Frances usually shoots with a Canon, but shooting with my Pen she couldn’t believe the shots it was getting and remarked, “Something this small shouldn’t be able to do this!” I felt pretty proud of my little camera!
Anyway, a few hair-up, hair-in-hat shots here – the oatmeal cream bobble hat has such a wonderful 70s feel about it. I’m sure I’ve seen old photos of my mum wearing something similar and then I keep thinking Ali McGraw in Love Story. As relaxed as I may look in these photos, I am starting to have a small Christmas stress attack – present buying still to do, plus I’ve set myself the task of doing real Christmas cards this year. I had a photo printed up into cards which came out really well, so if I have your address you’ll probably find one in the post!
And, in other news, and I’ve been having kittens over this as it just went live yesterday, you can now download Stylonylon as an app! Great for reading on your iPhone or iPad – just search in the App Store for Stylonylon. Be one of the first to download and let me know what you think – do you like reading blogs like this?
Plus congratulations to Viktoria DeRoy, the winner of my Clarice Price Thomas giveaway!
I am wearing Zara faux fur (similar here), RIYKA Timothy jumper* (on sale!), Paige Jimmy Jimmy jeans (different wash), Lowie hat, Kate Sherdian bag, Akalis necklace from I Love Designer and Adidas Stan Smiths
