Thanks everyone for your lovely comments on my previous post and helping me see the light and get my fashion mojo back. Your great tips reminded me of when I was a fashion student and met with Hardy Amies who was giving a lecture at the Museum of London. His memorable quotes were "Silver is for the dining table" in reference to jewelery, nothing less than gold or diamonds were permissible for a Lady to wear- what a snob, god love him ! The other was the perfect hem length should be just below the knee; which was greeted by lots of *nods of agreement* from the more mature audience - I had yet to appreciate how true his words would ring now I am 'ahem' more mature. There was I, 19 and wearing velvet hotpants to college - have just worked out in my head that was 20 bloody years ago! No one should remember what they did 20 years ago!
Right I had better grab that toddler and get working out on the knee lifts - thanks Kate for the workout tip. Better use the lighter weight one, as Toddler Wild thing is HEAVY and may break my ankles.
Now I am over the puking baby stage but still to hit the potty training wee wee everywhere stage, I may get a few of these lovelies to give my home an Autumnal vibe.
Velvet cushions from Hennes £14.99 its enough to break my Cath Kidston habit (florals hide a multitude of stains). Will look mighty fine perched on the tots head for the cruel Christmas photo that I have decided is the new family tradition.
