Travelling Fleur

Travelling Fleur

>> This blog lately just seems to be full of apologies.  I'm giving myself the 'It's Auuuuuugust!' excuse though and leaving it be.  I will be completely chocker block with travelling over the next month or so.  You'll start seeing some dark shades of tiredness circling my face.  I may even begin to loathe packing and you're talking to the person who loves a good packing sesh… rolling t-shirts, skirts and cramming them in.  Once I get some wheels and a trolley pull on this new Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair acquisition, I'll be set for the month+ cycle of monotonous security checks and immigration asking "You SURE this passport is yours?" (due for a new one soon fortunately…)

Whilst Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair's new A/W 10-11 collection had just dropped into store when I was there last week, I knew I was going to be honing into the S/S 10 Liberty prints that had so pervaded my head when I a) got a pair of Liberty print Clarks boots that had used the same print and b) discovered that head to toe in the stuff isn't such a far off apparition given that more and more pieces have been creeping in, perhaps not directly from Liberty themselves but through the many collaborations they do.

Anyhow…along with the case, the shoes which are the wedged up version of my Clarks boots also came back with me in order to fulfill what is an inevitable onslaught of ditzy florals and paisley swirls…

    What a great outfit, I love mismatched florals. And this looks smart and fun rather than overly girly.

    The ongoing theme of ditsy print and paisley combine beautifully, and you have a lovely smile. I’m liking the skirt and the suitcase in particular! It all has a very ‘naive’ and ‘innocent’ feel, like a young girl from the 60’s on her very first adventure.

    Stunning pattern combination and just surprising that the allover look is not overdone and too much on top.It is just gorgous and romantic in its millefleur graphics.

    Hi Susie,
    I LOVE that suitcase. I WANT that suitcase. SO jealous! It’s beautiful.
    Liberty does some similar ones, but smaller. They were £45 when I first discovered them, but the prices have gradually been hiked up to £48 and now £60! Still worth it though.
    I blogged about them back in May:
    And you can buy them online at Liberty’s website:
    Enjoy your travels with that case!

    I’ve clearly neglected the suitcase retail market…I feel having one of those ones would make travelling infinitely more fun!
