Fairytale coats

Well, we think we have solved the chimney problem. We were doing well with sweeping it ourselves, but unfortunately, the brush snapped off the end of the stick part way up and we couldn’t get it down again. In the end we decided to light the Rayburn anyway and let the bristles melt. So at the moment, the Rayburn is going really well, but part of a sweep brush is still stuck up there! We’re warmer inside than we’ve been all winter, but the wind outside is icy cold. I’ve been looking around Etsy for some snuggly winter coats to keep warm in on those crisp walks in the countryside…

I’ve seen four or five rainbows already this year. Where I live, on top of a hill looking into a valley; the rain always seems to be on top of us, but in the afternoons the sun nearly always pops out briefly from behind Glastonbury Tor and sweeps through the valley, giving me a beautiful rainbow to look at. This gorgeous coat from TPF Faerie Wear would make me happy every time I wore it; just like seeing the rainbows from my window does.

I love this photo of the misty woodland with the ground covered in crisp dead leaves. It makes me imagine naughty goblins enticing the traveller away from the safety of the path. The pixie shapes of this coat by Zizzyfay Wear make it perfect for joining in the faerie fun amongst the trees.

Speaking of getting lost in the woods; how Little Red Riding Hood is this stunning coat from Armstreet in the Ukraine? It has strong styling of European medieval fairy tales and I love the black pattern detailing and the cloaky-style sleeves.

Weekly Wardrobe – Christmas Party
January 9, 2017
I’m back with my regular Weekly Wardrobe feature, in the outfit I wore for our village Writers’ Group Christmas party. It was far too late in the day for photos outside, so we rigged up this handmade background (more on that another day) and a studio flash set-up. It was a pretty muddy day, so I only have socks on as I wore wellies to walk to and back from the party, and just had socks on while I was there as I knew it would just be sitting round a table and no-one would see my feet anyway! I couldn’t think of any stand-in party shoes at the last minute, so here I am, authentically in my socks!

Styling a simple blue dress – summer fashion.
August 4, 2017
As you can tell, these photos were taken on a warm day in spring, back when the bluebells were out in full force; but this is still an outfit I’m wearing four months later, so I thought I’d do some catching up as I haven’t written so many fashion blog posts recently. This was actually an impromptu photo-shoot as we were out hunting for bright yellow rape-seed oil flower fields. We always see them next to the road when we’re not looking for them, but when we were it took us hours! We saw the dappled light shining through the trees and thought we’d hop out the car and take some photos there just in case we never found what we were looking for….
