I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Indian Summer

Escaped Princess Dress

I’ve just bought a massive box full of slightly damaged  Indian silk shawls, salwar  and kameez ready for me to cut up and upcycle into beautiful clothing, so this is an ongoing collection. So far I have nine items ready for sale at Oshun. Here are some of them.

Styling the Spring/Summer 2018 trends: Pink
June 18, 2018
I have several items in my wardrobe of the dusky blush pink variety; but not so many of the brighter and pastel shades of pink that are on trend this season. I’ll have to be honest, is isn’t a shade that I think suits me very much, but this dress was so lovely, I wasn’t going to pass it by due to the colour! Some of these photos show how I styled it last summer, and some are from cooler days this spring, so they give you a couple of different ideas for how to style a pink dress….

Hi Helen,

I came across your website and I loved it! Have you created those dresses yourself? I’m a big fan of Indian clothes, they look so nice and colourful! I’ll keep reading your blog! (I apologize for the spelling mistakes, I’m still learning English).

Thank you! Yes I have created those clothes myself – I started out with an item of Indian clothing, and then altered them in some way or another – usually adding loads more material to make fairytale dresses. I can’t take credit for the beading and embroidery; that is all part of the original fabric.
(Don’t worry – your English is very good!)
