Mickey Mouse Meets The Lady of the Manor

Friday, June 11, 2010

You may have noticed there was no post from me yesterday….

The reason was that I’m currently in Kent, and yesterday I spent the day in Tunbridge Wells at the Steam Railway with Lady K Loves shooting some new items for Autumn Winter. It was a fantastic day and the initial shots look amazing. I have a load of behind the scenes video that I’m going to edit over the next few days to give you a sneak preview of the shoot and the collection, before it goes live on the website in September.

For the long journey home from Kent this afternoon I want something comfortable, so a (very) old Mickey & Minne Mouse T Shirt and a pencil skirt with slight stretch offered the requisite comfort with a dash of smartness. I was rather taken with the juxtaposition of the Micky Mouse T Shirt and smart looking pencil skirt so I decided to play it up a bit more by wearing my pearls.

I had planned to take a couple of photos outside, but it’s absolutely bucketing with rain, so I went for posing at the bottom of my Parents stairs instead, but unfortunately the lights not that great inside!

A pencil skirt might seem like an odd choice to travel in, but the truth is I very rarely travel in jeans as I find them really uncomfortably and restrictive to sit down in for any length of time. I’ve never really understood the reputation of jeans as a comfortable wardrobe item, I’m far more comfortable in skirts!

I also went for flicky eyeliner this morning. The last time I mentioned that I got asked for close up photos, so here’s some of me pulling an incredibly serious face. It’s very difficult to take photos of your own eyes….

This weekend I shall be off to a friends Anniversary party where there will be Football and Pimms.

I hope you all have equally lovely weekend plans!
