New Forest Fairy Festival

Weekly Wardrobe – New Forest Fairy Festival

This the event of the year for my Oshun clothing brand. It is the day after the New Forest Fairy Festival and I am utterly exhausted! It was an amazing weekend; incredibly busy; the sun shone and it was a complete success. Unfortunately it was so busy, I couldn’t leave my stall at all so I only managed to briefly visit one of the people I interviewed before the event. It’s a real shame I didn’t see the others, and that it the only down side of the weekend – other than that, it really couldn’t have been better. Everyone is so friendly and the atmosphere is lovely, so what better place to bring you my weekly wardrobe pictures from! Only one outfit this week as I was too occupied with getting ready for the festival beforehand. I’ll tell you more about the festival in my Monthly Memoir post at the end of the month….

Weekly Wardrobe – Summer Dresses (Glastonbury Festival edition!)

The day of the week for these posts have been a little random lately – sorry about that! Glastonbury Festival just messes with my schedule, and I’m notNot Dressed As Lamb sure it will get much better as I’m quite busy over the next few weeks. However, I’m going to do my best to get these back on track and uploaded on Mondays. The misty drizzle that’s more-or-less settled itself over Pilton was not ideal for NotDressedAsLamb‘s theme of summer dresses this week. I did manage to wear a couple though, but with a cardigan over the top!

We all like to dress up for Glastonbury Festival (ok, that’s a sweeping generalisation based on me,) but there’s nothing worse than showing up at the coolest place on earth in boring old jeans and t-shirt. It’s just not fitting for the occasion. So take a look at www.oshun.co.uk There’s just time to receive your order for the festival next week. Here’s a few of my favourites…
