Distracted by Indian Silk

I LOVE e-bay! I know I should be concentrating on promoting the Pirate Collection for Oshun, but I couldn’t resist this bargain bundle of Indian clothing. They are all damaged in some way or another, but perfect for transforming into new beautiful clothes.

The beading on some of them is just exquisite. I am already getting ahead of myself and am now planning a Fairy collection for mid summer using all the delicate silks and cottons. I took advantage of this lovely weather we’re having and hand washed (with the help of Jude) all 36 items so they are ready to go. The sun glinting on the beads looked lovely, so I took a couple of photos.

I don’t know about you, but as we marched into April I had so had enough of winter! I was desperate to move away from my dark coloured winter wardrobe and wear some florals. I only went in Primark to buy a cheap skin-coloured bra as we were away in the camper and I’d forgotten to pack one! But on my way to the till I spotted this floral shirt dress that I just picked up (along with a mustard dress, coming to the style inspo section on the blog soon!) and took it with me….

We’ve had a real mix of weather lately haven’t we?! I’m actually across the pond in Connecticut right now, but I think it’s fairly similar to the UK – lovely and sunny one day, and then cold and grey the next. This outfit would have been perfect the day before we took the photos! However it was ten degrees cooler when the weekend rolled around and I have to be honest, my bare legs were a little chilly! Anyway, this is a great way to layer for changeable weather, but maybe pack a pair of skin-coloured tights too!…

I don’t consider myself a fountain of knowledge or an expert in any field, however, people occasionally come to me for fashion advice, in real life as well as online. And they say things along the lines of wanting to know how to dress a bit more adventurously. I’ve even had a request from a couple of people in a marketing facebook group I’m in, to write a mini ebook on the subject! I may well do that, but for now, I thought I’d start a series where I point out some of the details I like in garments that are just a bit different from your usual standard clothing…
