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 🙂



Anti-Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone!

For a start, if you’re single this day comes along just to rub your face in it and remind you just how lonely and miserable you really are.

Then again, you may be half of an old married couple, jaded, worn and cynical, flopped on the settee with little chance of romantic gestures coming your way.

You may even be in a loved up romance in the honeymoon of your relationship – all lovey dovey and squelchy, but with someone else who thinks Valentine’s Day is a corporate con invented to sell more cards that will only end up in the bin anyway.

You may be part of one of those couples who do Date Night every week so you don’t bother with Valentine’s Day because it’s nothing special.

You could be so secure in your relationship; you just don’t need it.

My daughter was saying only yesterday that the only good thing about it is the reduced chocolate the next day. Here’s the perfect dress for you – an anti-Valentine’s dress – red with a very gothic touch! This dress has now sold out, but if you’d like me to make you something, please get in touch: helen@threadsofafairytale.com

This jersey dress from Joe Browns made its way into my clothing collection recently, so I thought (for a change) I would share it with you before it goes out of stock! If there’s one item of clothing I’ve been reaching for lately, it’s been a dress made out of lovely comfy stretchy material! Jersey, by the way is what t-shirts are made of; a woven fabric with some stretch, sometimes with added elastane or lycra for extra stretch. Through winter I’ve been wearing them with a snuggly jumper over the top and thick leggings underneath and it meets that elusive requirement of being comfortable to wear, but still looks good enough to leave the house in. However, there are good and bad points that need considering when shopping for a jersey dress…..

How to style a floral shirt dress; perfect spring fashion
May 29, 2018
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….
