The bubble has arrived….

The bubble has arrived….

Well, after much deliberation, I have finally ventured into the mystical and magical world of blogging.  Yes, after secretly consuming other people’s blogs (Fashionologie and La Coquette – you have been my blog inspirations!) for a good few years, now I too feel like I have something to contribute (express/vent out would be a better way of putting it!) 

Except here’s the tricky part (now read carefully!).  I am not a fashion insider, I don’t work in the business, I am not an avid WWD reader so I’m not going to be handing out fashion scoop and catwalk pics like most other blogs.  Instead, I’m going to be offering what I have now termed my fashion titbits (nothing to do with the mammary area). 

A vast majority of my waking moments goes toward either a) reading about, b) consuming, c) admiring, d) concocting fashion.  However, I also have peculiar/particular tastes/opinions – hence why this blog will be grossly personal.  There may only be 0.001% of blog readers remotely interested in my take on vintage hats and Art Deco palaces but as the cliche goes – I can only write what I know/love.  Namely, the following:

1) Going to Oxfam and finding a skirt for 30p and then going home and sewing it to a t-shirt to make a dress.

2) Reading biographies on 30’s English aristocrats and dreaming of sipping tea at Fortnums wearing a cloche hat and white gloves.

3) Trying to furiously plan a weekend in Antwerp whilst risking getting fired, for an exhibiton at Mode Natie. 

Excited? Vaguely curious? Itching to read forthcoming posts?  (Gosh, and the ego has begun…..)  If you are, great to know that the 0.001% exists!  Let’s celebrate with a song….

Psapp – Cosy in the Rocket (many of you may know it from the show Grey’s Anatomy)

    Thanks for the interest Francesca and Fashionologie!
    Fashionologie: Without sounding overly gushing, I do have to say your blog has been an inspiration – haha, don’t think mine is going to be half as informative or funny!

    Finally I found the first post! This Blog is such a huge inspiration for me…

    I personally love the way you write about fashion, even if you still feel you are an outsider… aren’t most of us like that anyway?

    Thank you for sharing! (^-^)
